Cirie Fields 'Survivor' Exit Interview

After losing in yet another immunity challenge, Cirie Fields was voted out by her tribe in last night's 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.'

Those poor good guys are really having a tough time of it. On day 9, coming off of their first win last week, the Heroes seemed poised to repeat in a "get cool stuff from Sears" reward challenge but Tom and Colby -- who were already on the outs with their tribe -- faltered on the greased-up slip 'n' slide. The only thing the Heroes ended up getting was flack from host Jeff Probst.After losing in yet another immunity challenge, Cirie Fields was voted out by her tribe in last night's 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.'

Those poor good guys are really having a tough time of it. On day 9, coming off of their first win last week, the Heroes seemed poised to repeat in a "get cool stuff from Sears" reward challenge but Tom and Colby -- who were already on the outs with their tribe -- faltered on the greased-up slip 'n' slide. The only thing the Heroes ended up getting was flack from host Jeff Probst.

When clues to hidden immunity idols were revealed, chaos ensued at both camps. The Villains decided they'd automatically vote out anyone who found it, though idol whisperer Russell went to look for it anyway. Meanwhile, the Heroes went searching and crafty Tom, fearing his days were numbered, found it.

After the Villains narrowly eked out a win in the immunity challenge (the giant ball and table maze), the Heroes had to decide who was going home.

"We're going back to Tribal Council and getting rid of Colby or Tom tonight," Cirie Fields declared, in what would turn out to be an ironic statement. "Would be the smart thing to do. They have been on the outs with our tribe since day 3 and for my game, I need some of these strong people gone."


Unfortunately, the tribe didn't concur with Cirie's estimation of the "smart thing to do" and, after Tom presciently played his immunity idol, she found herself on the receiving end of the tribe's first blindside.

What does the mom of three from Bristol, Conn., who admitted on camera that "they got me," have to say about her third attempt at outwitting, outplaying and outlasting?



At Tribal Council, when Probst asked Tom to weigh in, he answered, "I believe Cirie is not worried that she's going home tonight." Were you genuinely concerned?
Absolutely! You can feel what's going on around you and I'd never felt comfortable with the alliance that J.T. and I had -- we just didn't trust each other -- and if you have a lack of trust in any alliance, you have to be weary of that person flipping.

Tom also called you the "puppet master" and said that you're "way too good at wrapping some of these really weak minds around your little finger." Any truth there?

I agree. I don't think it's necessarily weak minds, though. I have a power of persuasion and I can break down situations so that people can see things from my perspective. [Laughing] Well, there have been a few weak minds but it's not necessarily that.

Going into this season I thought I wanted to align with ...

The thing is there are so many people who've played that you can't really pinpoint who is going to be there. I had gone on with my life and was genuinely surprised to be given the opportunity to play again so I didn't really plan on anything or think ahead.

I got along best with ...
I really got along well with Stephenie and Candice. I'd watched their seasons and loved Steph in her first one -- less in the second -- but I didn't really think that we'd get along and we did. We forged a great relationship and still talk today.

I didn't form any opinions about Candice but I was pleasantly surprised by how well we got along and by how smart she is. I don't think it comes across on the show, but she's very intelligent.

What was the luxury item you got for winning that challenge?
I had pictures of my husband and family. Family support is always needed out there. If nothing else I knew I could trust the people in the pictures.

You're driving across the country. Who rides shotgun? Who rides in the trunk?

Stephanie rides shotgun and Tom is in the trunk.

Other than 'Survivor,' my favorite reality TV show is ...

Oooh, I have so many. It's a tie between 'Big Brother' and 'The Amazing Race.' I've thought about [doing the race] but I have one huge problem -- I'm horrific with directions. It's a miracle that I can find my way to work every day.

Who's the best fictional or real-life villain of all time?
I'm sorry but I have to give it to Russell. From what I've seen so far this season and season, he's the best villain. Ever.
