Kat Edorsson loses challenge on Redemption Island

She was part of an all-girl alliance on 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' that seemed unbreakable. However, Kat Edorsson soon found out she was on the outs when she vented how frustrated she was that tribe mate Monica Culpepper wouldn't stop talking strategy. That slip of frustration led to paranoia among her alliance, which soon determined she was no longer trustworthy and voted her out. I recently spoke with Edorsson, who had the opportunity to play this season of 'Survivor' with her boyfriend Hayden Moss, winner of 'Big Brother 12' on CBS.  

The Maine Edge: Any regrets sharing with Tina that maybe Monica should be the next to go on the tribe?

Edorsson: During the game, I was really surprised Tina flipped on me and threw me under the bus. I shouldn't have spoke [my feelings] right before the vote.

TME: At one point Monica told you that she heard her name being thrown around. Why not fess up?

Edorsson: That was the downfall of my game. I should have never lied to her. I should have just told her the truth. But at the end of the day, I don't know if that would've changed her vote because it wasn't really her. Tina was afraid I was lying to her and strategizing against her and Katie.

TME: Besides having a loved one there, how different is this 'Survivor' from 'Survivor: One World'?

Edorsson: It's so much different. In 'Survivor: One World,' it was girls and we completely dominated the season. On 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water,' everyone came back with their own agenda. In my first season it was so much easier for me because they generally wanted me to be around because they were my actual friends. In 'Blood vs. Water' there wasn't one time where I felt my words were safe.

TME: Why didn't you let Hayden take your place on Redemption Island?

Edorsson: You have no idea how much that killed me. It was really tough. 

TME: What are his chances now?

Edorsson: I think Hayden's in a really great spot. It's a lot easier for him to relate to people now that he doesn't have a loved one [there]. So that's very convenient. 

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' airs every Wednesday night on CBS at 8 p.m.
