Holly had an amazingly two-sided game in the 21st season of Nicaragua. Starting off on the back foot and looking likely to be an early boot, Holly survived long enough to make the final 4, only to just fall short and go out as the final person voted out of the game.
Starting out on the older Espada tribe, Holly was very close to quitting the game after only 5 days before being talked out of it by NFL champion coach Jimmy Johnson. Her infamous decision to throw away Dan’s shoes, only to feel guilty and give them back made her even more of a target, only to be saved by a tribal switch which soon saw her become more of a dominant player and in a much stronger position. Holly would then go all the way to the end, just missing out on making the final tribal council by finishing in 4th place.
In our interview, Holly discusses her emotional journey on the show, that move with Dan’s shoes as well as her career post Survivor and the reaction from people on her return home. We also debut for the first time our new set of 5 questions which are entirely Survivor based!
