She won the last four immunity challenges to secure her place as one of the three finalist vying for the title of sole survivor and the one million dollar prize. 29-year-old Kim Spradlin of Texas, who never played her hidden immunity idol necklace, sat beside 26-year-old Chelsea Meissner of South Carolina and 33-year-old Sabrina Thompson of New York, hoping to be picked as this season's 'Survivor' winner by a jury of fellow contestants that she helped vote off. Many of the participants admitted Kim played a great game; making them all believe she had a relationship or alliance with each of them, which in the end won her the game. I had the chance to speak with Spradlin over the phone the day after the show and the 'Survivor' reunion to get her reaction to her win and to find out what she did with the immunity necklace she was never forced to use.
The Maine Edge: What did you do with the immunity idol?
Spradlin: I actually gave that to Troy after I got to Ponderosa . I always hated how it shook out between Troy and I and knew there were things he didn't get to do that he wanted to do and that he loved the game, so I gave it to him.
TME: Looking back what do you think your biggest move was?
Spradlin: The key moves were getting Jonas and Mike out. Those were key to ensuring people were voting where they were suppose to vote.
TME: How difficult and stressful was the jury questioning?
Spradlin: It was terrible I was expecting worst case scenario walking into that final tribal council. I saw the jury's faces and they looked pretty pissed. Then to hear and see these people were going to forgive me and that it was alright, I was touched.
TME: What's your relationship like now with Kat?
Spradlin: I'm a big Kat fan. She is totally a different person today than the one I met out there. She did a lot of growing up, she's fun to be around. I love her a lot.
TME: What has been your family's reaction?
Spradlin: They're pumped and so excited for me.
