The Maine Edge: Did you feel when Brandon [a Survivor 'favorite'] exited the game, things were going to turn around for you?
Landauer: We were excited. They [the former Bikal tribe] clearly had some unrest in their tribe and we had just gotten rid of our weakest player, Laura. So we were feeling really confident and ready to go, crush and destroy. Then our plan was never put into action because of the [tribe] swap.
TME: There was talk of splitting the vote between you and Michael, which did happen. But was there ever a time you thought to go to Corinne and you, Michael and her vote for Phillip to go home and split the vote that way?
Landauer: We could have but there were a couple of things with that. From the get go Corinne said as much as she wanted to, she wasn't going to flip on her alliance. And at that point Michael and I were fighting for our own lives and as much as he was my ally, he was also my biggest competition.
TME: If you made it onto the jury, who would you give the million dollars to based on the players left in the game?
Landauer: I would have to give it to Michael because up to this point he has overcome all the battles I had to. He's been a fighter and it's really cool to see the underdog come out on top.
