Many people thought Vytas would shine this season now that he’s no longer in the shadow of his brother, Season 12 winner Aras Baskauskas. Did Aras have anything to say about Vytas’ early exit? “Yeah, we had a big party last night. Aras has been really loving to me. He knows how disappointing that this is for me. He knows how badly I wanted to do well. We haven’t had any sort of rivalry about it.”
When we inform Vytas that Kelley Wentworth is predicted to win “Survivor: Second Chance,” he says, “I’ll tell you who I’m rooting for. I’m rooting for Terry Deitz, who was in my alliance. And I’m rooting for my girl Ciera Eastin, who I was on ‘Blood vs. Water’ with. I’m curious to see if Jeremy Collins does well, too.”
Also in our chat, Vytas gives kudos to Shirin Oskooi for coordinating his ouster, he talks about his friendships with Kelly Wiglesworth and Spencer Bledsoe and reveals what we didn’t see on TV. Scroll down to listen to our entire Q&A.
