The Maine Edge: Do you think you were overconfident?
Kaplan: I was overconfident in my relationship with Dawn. I was not overconfident in the game. Trust me, I didn't think I had a very good shot for the million. My goal was to make it to the jury.
TME: Why not try to flip [your vote] on Phillip? You said you'd stay loyal to your alliance until there were no more "fan" players but he obviously didn't feel the same way.
Kaplan: I would have loved to have gotten Phillip out. I tried to get Phillip out when we were voting out Matt, when we were voting out Julia. But I just couldn't get anyone on board. I made all my decisions with Dawn and Dawn didn't want to get rid of Phillip. I feel in an alliance it's a democracy and you can't get your own way and for whatever reason when I went to Dawn, Cochran or Andrea, no one would get rid of Phillip.
TME: Do you think people are willing to take him [or keep him around] because if he ended up in the final three no one on the jury would vote for him?
Kaplan: Nobody in real life would hang out with him. No one likes him but I believed myself to be in the same position. No one is going to give me the million dollars so I would say, "Why not take me to the end instead of the most annoying player?"
TME: Any one liners or things you regret saying?
Kaplan: Oh God, no. I think like that. There's a ton of things I said that got edited out that I thought were great. After one of the challenges, Phillip looked at me and said, "Corinne if I didn't know better I would think you threw that challenge." And I said, "Honestly, I would rather go midnight fishing with Scott Pederson than go to tribal council tonight. I did not throw that challenge."
