Peih-Gee reflects on her second chance playing Survivor

On Episode 3 of Survivor Cambodia, Peih-Gee Law ended up getting voted off camp following an epic Second Chance tribe swap that shook everything—and everyone—up. 

We were able to catch up with Peih-Gee and she shared insights about her experience on the show, including what she really thinks of Abi-Maria Gomes, her feelings about Woo Hwang, and who she thinks could end up snagging the title of Sole Survivor. Read on!
1. Looking back at your Second Chance stint, what would you have done differently?

2. 1. Looking back at your Second Chance stint, what would you have done differently?

Peih-Gee: "So much. I think I was in a pretty good position with my relationships with everybody, besides Abi-Maria Gomes… so, I probably should have worked with Andrew Savage and Tasha Fox to vote Abi out the minute we had the tribe swap. They may not have tried to befriend her and get her on their side, if I showed I was willing to work with them first."
2. What were your thoughts on the tribe swap?

3. 2. What were your thoughts on the tribe swap?

Peih-Gee: "Oh man, it was like a roller coaster of emotions. Your first thought is, 'Yay, I’m in the majority and there are two of my best allies on this tribe and, boo, Abi-Maria’s still here with me and we’re going to the terrible, no-good beach.'

You run the whole gamut. It was the worst Survivor beach I had ever been on—even worse than my first time in China. We didn’t even have rice this time.”
3. Can you explain your beef with Abi-Maria?

4. 3. Can you explain your beef with Abi-Maria?

Peih-Gee: "It was all extremely high school and I feel really sorry that I have to get caught up in it. From what I heard from other members, she kind of came in already disliking me for some reason, like a high-school girl.

But, then the whole bracelet thing happened. That was purely an accident. So, you know, there were a bunch of empty bags on the beach and everyone said, 'Just grab one and put your name tag on it and that’ll be yours, and I took what I thought was an empty bag and it turns out, it had her bracelet inside it. I really had no idea. She went around behind my back telling everyone I was a thief and stole her bracelet, and that’s really not cool.

Luckily, no one believed her. That sort of set a bad precedent and then she sort of never trusted me after, even though I constantly tried to be nice to her.

It’s kind of like a cop; you see them on the street when you’re driving, and you always feel a little guilty even though you didn’t do anything. It was almost worth getting voted out just so I didn’t have to be around her anymore."
4. Who would you have aligned with if you stayed?

5. 4. Who would you have aligned with if you stayed?

Peih-Gee: "If I had stayed, I would almost 100-percent rather joined up with Tasha and Savage. They seem like pretty solid people to be in an alliance with, but who knows how much they would have wanted to keep me around."
7. Do you think Woo's time at camp will be short-lived?

6. 7. Do you think Woo's time at camp will be short-lived?

Peih-Gee: "I don’t think his time is going to be short there because the only person that has something against him is Abi. I think Savage really likes Woo and there’s a lot of possibility for a bromance there.

Woo is actually pretty good at getting out of certain situations. Like, after Vytas Baskauskas got voted out, they didn’t show this [but] Woo said right away to everyone, 'You know what guys, no hard feelings. I understand it’s a game and you had to get rid of him. You didn’t have to let me know. I’m totally cool with that and I just want to work with you guys.'

That showed he had a lot of adaptability. He didn’t come back really bitter about being left out."
6. Do you think Abi-Maria will be voted out next?

7. 6. Do you think Abi-Maria will be voted out next?

Peih-Gee: "I think that if they’re smart, they should have her be the next to go. She’s served her purpose to help [Tasha and Savage] get rid of me, so now would be a smart time to get rid of her and work with someone like Woo. He seems like an easier person to work with."
5. Do you know what Jeff Varner lipped to Kelly Wiglesworth at the end of the Immunity Challenge?

8. 5. Do you know what Jeff Varner lipped to Kelly Wiglesworth at the end of the Immunity Challenge?

Peih-Gee: "I was really out of it after the challenge. I was on the verge of passing out, but what I think what he said was, 'Stick together.' Maybe, like, 'Stick with Kimmi Kappenberg and Ciera Eastin.' I think he had maybe gotten some information from Tasha and Savage that led him to believe maybe Kimmi and Ciera were on the outs on that tribe. So, I think [Varner] was like, 'Work with them.'"
9. Do you have any advice for aspiring Survivor castaways?

9. 9. Do you have any advice for aspiring Survivor castaways?

Peih-Gee: "Stay clear of Abi-Maria and it’s 100-percent a social game. Make a lot of bonds with everyone and know how to manage people that are on the outs."
11. How would you compare your first day on your second season to the first day on your first season?

10. 11. How would you compare your first day on your second season to the first day on your first season?

Peih-Gee: "They’re like night and day. I was very confident this time around. [During my] first season, the worst is the unknown. You have no idea what to expect when you’re out there. Like, I’m a city gal, and they’re like, 'Here ya go. Go survive and deal with these crazy people.'

This time around it was, like, I know how to build shelter and a fire, and you know you’re not going to die out there. What’s left is just managing people. I would say the first day the second time around was much easier." 
8. What does Survivor mean to you?

11. 8. What does Survivor mean to you?

Peih-Gee: "Jeff Varner really put it best when he called it a 'mid-life quest.' That really resonated.

It's about searching for the best inside you and trying to use that when you’re in a really crazy environment. But, maybe also taking the worst inside you and learning how to use that, as well. It’s a fine balance between the two.

It really challenges your entire human person—physically, mentally, emotionally—and I’m really sad I got voted out so early, and didn’t get to develop more of those relationships. It’s a deeply fulfilling experience."
10. Which castaway(s) could you picture winning the title this time around?

12. 10. Which castaway(s) could you picture winning the title this time around?

Peih-Gee: "Well, I have to say both Kelley Wentworth and Jeremy Collins are playing really good games. They both have Idols and it looks like both of them are playing really good social games, as well.

But it’s so early. Shirin Oskooi went from top of the world to bottom of the heap in three days, and so did I. So, you never know what’s going to happen."
12. Would you ever play again, and what can we expect from you next?

13. 12. Would you ever play again, and what can we expect from you next?

Peih-Gee: “I would definitely go back if ever asked to go back.

As we all know, I’m a jeweler and I’ve been working on a line of survival emergency jewelry. I got the idea after making these fish-hook earrings that I brought out there, and one of my clients requested I make a pair because he thought they were so cool, and it just gave me the idea to do this. I am really into survival and emergency gear and realized there isn’t a lot out there made for women."
