‘Survivor’ castoff Drew Christy: I was delusional for throwing a challenge; however … (Podcast)

“It was definitely wrong of me to try to throw a challenge. I was definitely delusional,” admitted Drew Christy to Gold Derby during our Q&A following his elimination from “Survivor: San Juan del Sur.” (Listen to the complete audio podcast below.)

However, he added, “There was a lot of stuff that happened out there that the audience really didn’t get to see. Jon Misch and Jeremy Collins and Natalie Anderson all knew that I threw that challenge. They were all on my side to throw that and we kind of made a game plan to do that before I even went to Exile.”

Psst: Here’s how to predict reality TV shows and win bragging rights AND prizes!

While Drew says he was blindsided at Tribal Council, our racetrack odds predicted he would be voted out at Tribal Council. Our Users taking part in our “Survivor” prediction contest gave him the best odds to get the boot, making him a 5/1 favorite for the chop.

Going forward, our exclusive Gold Derby odds have Kelley Wentworth in first place to win Season 29 with odds of 7/1, followed by Jeremy and Reed Kelly at 8/1 each. Who do you think will win?

Since Drew was portrayed as the “ladies man” of the season, we just had to ask him which of this season’s ladies would he most want to go on a date with?

“That’s a good question,” laughed Drew. “Honestly, none of them were really my type. I really got close to the twinnies, I love their personality. The rest of the chicks weren’t really my type, I gotta tell you the honest truth. Jaclyn Schultz is really pretty but I think she was a little bit soft-spoken for me. I’m kind of a loud guy, if you hadn’t noticed. I need something that can kind of keep up.”

Here are a few other fun nuggets from our Q&A with Drew:

*He wished he would have watched more episodes of “Survivor” prior to starting the game (just like his nemesis Kelley did), because he now knows that throwing a challenge never works out.

*His scariest animal encounter was waking up with a “six-inch praying mantis” on his chest one night.

*Drew’s mom just wanted him and brother Alec Christy to still love each other after the game, as she was worried they would butt heads on the show.

*During one of the challenge battles, Drew actually beat John Rocker head-to-head; however, the the scene was edited to appear as though Drew lost.
