‘Survivor 41’ Star Liana Wallace Talks Being Back on School Campus As Show Airs

by Joe Rutland

After being on Survivor 41, Liana Wallace is back at college while the show airs on CBS. What has it been like for her?

Wallace talks about it in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“It’s so wild,” she said. “After last night’s episode, I leave my best friend’s apartment and I’m walking outside and there’s a Georgetown Survivor club. And so this kid walks over and he’s like, ‘Liana, we were rooting for you. We love you so much!’

“Just random people know I’m on Survivor and know my name,” Wallace said. “It’s just crazy. And it’s really cool to see that kind of culture being created at Georgetown. I’m so excited I got to be a part of it.”

‘Survivor 41’ Contestant Also Has Some Thoughts On Xander’s Feelings

Outsiders, we also get some info on what she thinks about contestant Xander Hastings’ feelings toward Wallace.

She said in her interview that she was just laughing at that news.

Her comments state that she thought it was “the cherry on top — that this entire time he has this little crush on me,'” Wallace said. “But at that point, I’m so fed up with him.”

What was her attitude? She “just want(s) you out of the game,'” Wallace said. “So that was a funny dynamic. I think it’s a fun thing for people to watch and see because it makes our season interesting, but that really, like, just made me laugh. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this game.'”

And that’s how she feels about it while she gets acclimated back to Georgetown.

Shan Smith Opens Up During Interview About Being Called Bossy

Now another former contestant on Survivor 41, Shantel Smith, is speaking up about what has been called her “bossy” behavior

Smith, in an interview with Parade, said she knew what she was doing on the beach.

“I’m never gonna say I wasn’t a boss,” she said. “I don’t know if I was bossy. But I was definitely the one strategizing.”

She also shared that if there had been any other man outside of Ricard playing Survivor, Smith does not believe there would be any, um, bossy talk.

Smith told the publication that she’s a leader in every space she occupies.

“That doesn’t mean that I don’t listen,” she said. “If I didn’t listen, I wouldn’t have gotten this far in the game.”

She pointed toward Tiffany Seely as one example from the show.

“If you had seen Tiffany, she was running around that beach, trying to gather numbers, you could call her bossy,” Smith said. “But she’s not; she’s just playing her game.”

Who will win? Just keep watching and see who Jeff Probst gives the top honor to on the show.
