3. Do you think your fixation on getting out Joe cost you?
Stephen: "Yeah, I do think so. I thought Joe was going to be my big résumé point when I was at my own Tribal. I think different seasons make their own assessments as to who should win based on different criteria and, this season, everyone was very focused on, 'What's on your résumé? What have you done? What is your move that you can point to?'
And, for me, I felt like Joe would be my résumé. He would be my Second Chance story where I can show, 'Hey, I got out the alpha male.'
I think it did blind me a little. If I had been a bit more situationally aware, I would have shifted the votes to send Abi home, rather than try to take that shot at Joe."
