The Maine Edge: Any regrets? I mean why would you come back for a 'Fans vs. Favorites' show if you were going to give them a reason to vote you off?
Hantz: No. Everything happens for a reason. Everything I did, it was true feelings, true emotions. I could've done things better. I didn't throw the game. I made a point. A lot of people equivilate what I did as quitting, but if everyone paid attention and watched I didn't have a choice, the challenge would've been thrown either way. I did have a choice where I could've went out like a gentleman but when you take away my chance to win a million dollars ain't no rice or beans going to be left on the island. I tried to be a gentleman with Coach [during Survivor: South Pacific] but it didn't work for me. I fell on my sword. I realized I was too nice the first time, too aggressive the second time. The third time will be a happy medium and you might see me win a million dollars.
TME: Did you ever consider asking [host] Jeff Probst to switch you to the fans tribe in order to continue the game?
Hantz: No, that's a good idea though. I wish I could've just done the challenge myself. But when you're in the heat of the moment, you don't think of things like that.
TME: Anyone you're rooting for?
Hantz: Dawn. Dawn's my girl. Dawn, Eric and Brenda but more so Dawn because she's my Momma.
Survivor: Caramoan airs every Wednesday night on CBS at 8 p.m.
