Survivor 41 star Evvie Jagoda just revealed some moments that didn’t make their way to TV. Survivor, just like any reality show, is going to have to cut some big moments for the sake of time. Evvie Jagoda, who was ousted from the game in last Wednesday’s episode along with Naseer Muttalif, said that there were some pretty interesting things that went on behind the scenes.
One of the big things that never made it on Survivor is what tore the original Yase team apart. It seemed like quite the leap between the week where Xander, Evvie, and Tiffany were conspiring together to the next, where the three members scrambled to find new allies. But there were also plenty of more wholesome behind-the-scenes moments that didn’t get their time to shine.
In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Evvie was asked about what viewers at home may have missed. The first one came when her former Yase team member, Tiffany, showed major support for her after she won immunity.
Evvie also noted that this group of people is a “wonderful group of people” even when food-deprived and at each other’s throats.
Among All the Moments Not Shown on ‘Survivor’ The Moments of Kindness Stand Out
“When I won the immunity and we went back to camp, the first thing I said to Tiff was, “I’m so sorry.” Because it was so obvious that me winning immunity meant that she was probably going home. And she was like, “Are you crazy? What are you talking about? What are you sorry about? I’m so proud of you,” she said.
“It actually made her happy that I won, even though that was it for her. And that’s just amazing in a million-dollar game,” Evvie continued.
Now, sadly, both Evvie and Tiffany are on the Jury, watching as the rest of the tribals unfold and getting some good rest in Ponderosa.
Another incident involved Danny, her fellow competitor who was clearly going to vote her out. But that didn’t stop him from giving Evvie some kind words.
“Right before the merge vote, I was freaking out. I was very upset, and Danny —who clearly was going to vote for me and obviously was in on the plan to get me out — taps me on the back and he’s like, “Don’t go into Tribal sad. Go in there with your game face on. You got this!” Even though he was totally against me,” she explained.
Survivor is called Survivor for a reason. The game is often ruthless. People are voted out at the snap of a finger and often tricked and strung along the whole way. But it looks like this cast is prioritizing kindness and sportsmanship, even if the show isn’t necessarily showing that side to them.
“These are really great people,” Evvie said. “And the fact that we can just recognize the humanity in each other while playing this game, that’s everything.”
