6. What surprised you most about your Survivor experience?
Anna: "I was surprised to learn how really important luck is. I knew there was luck involved but sometimes you don’t realize it until something like that happens.
"I was also surprised by how bad the mosquitos were out there. I didn’t realize I'd be so bitten up as bad as I was. It's difficult to go to sleep with what sounds like a million mosquitos around you. You almost go crazy with them buzzing in your ears all night, but then you can wake up so grateful in the morning surrounded by peace, serenity, and quiet.
"The elements really surprised me. Also, how hot it was. Watching from home and playing are two very different experiences. Survivor is so real. When I got out there, I realized it is what it is. I was happy and excited that it was exactly what I thought it would be."
