The second player eliminated from Survivor: Island of the Idols shared revealing details on the tribe’s alliances in their exit interview on RHAP.

This article will discuss the events in episode 2 of Survivor: Island of the Idols, including the player who got voted out.

The latest castaway to get their torch snuffed suffered from a blend of overconfidence and being too charming. Molly Byman was part of a tight alliance of three that were completely blindsided. Or was she? Rob Cesternino got a chance to speak with Molly about her departure and what really happened to her. It’s a short and intriguing listen, so I encourage you to check it out on RHAP. Here are some of the highlights from the conversation.

She had no clue who voted for and who didn’t

The one key point I learned from Molly’s interview was that she didn’t feel as tight with Jamal and Jack as the other castaways perceived. The fact that she had no idea that Jamal and Jack were the only two who didn’t vote for her shows that she didn’t really trust anyone implicitly. So why was she linked with the other two “cool kids” of Vokai?

It was her attitude, not her alliance that got her in trouble

The one connection Molly saw between herself and the other two guys was a similar, laid-back approach to the game. While other players like Noura were anxious and taking camp life seriously, Molly, Jack, and Jamal were chill and taking it easy. That nonchalant, confident outlook to the game may have been what flipped the switch in Lauren’s head.

Kellee’s idol hiding spot worked!

Kellee sneaking her Hidden Immunity Idol in her hair will surely go down as one of the most memorable moments of this season. It turns out that the edit didn’t lie as Molly had no clue about Kellee’s idol. She did comment on how Kellee really sold it with the crying, as she went on and on.

Her reason for feeling that emotional was because she felt so alone on the Island of the Idols and was concerned that she would have a massive target on her back because they wouldn’t trust her story. Although Molly didn’t believe everything Kellee said, she was convinced that she didn’t have an idol.

Other details she shared includes:

  • Molly, Janet and a few others were out on a raft and had a close encounter with a dangerous shark just two hours before Tribal Council!
  • Unlike Jamal, Molly did not take the gamble of taking a nap hours before Tribal Council
  • She was most surprised that Kellee and Janet voted for her

My favorite part of this exit interview had to be Molly’s practical advice for future Survivor players. First, she wished she went to each of her close friends and family members and asked them why she could be voted out. Molly also sees the value of always feeling like you’re going home. If you feel that way, you’ll have a better understanding of why people would consider voting you off and how you could change their mind.
