Marissa Peterson loses redemption island duel

In fourth grade, Marissa Peterson got the opportunity to watch her uncle Gervase compete on the CBS hit reality show 'Survivor.' This year, the 21-year-old North Carolina native had the chance to play alongside him when 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' invited past players to return to the game, this time with a loved one. However, moments after arriving, the contestants were separated. The loved ones were placed together on the Tadhana tribe, while the former 'Survivor' players formed the Galang tribe. With experience on their side, the Galang members have dominated the game so far, winning the first three immunity challenges against their loved ones. Peterson exited the game last week after her puzzle-making skills were put to the test on Redemption Island against married doctors John and Candice. I recently spoke with Peterson, who hopes anyone but her former tribe mates win the $1 million prize. 

The Maine Edge: Do you think you had a chance to really play 'Survivor' the way you had hoped, being voted onto Redemption Island so soon after arriving there?
