Shirin Oskooi talks candidly about her former tribe mates during our "Survivor: Second Chance" exit interview (listen below). She lets loose on "rude and condescending" Terry Deitz, who she compares with last season's womanizing castaway Dan Foley. And when we inform Shirin that Kelley Wentworth is predicted to win "Survivor: Second Chance" by our contest entrants, she gushes, "Kelley is amazing because she knows how to blend in when she needs to, but she also has great opinions and she's got great strategy impulse."
