‘Survivor’ Ponderosa video: 5th jury member swears he ‘never got too cocky’ despite Godfather moniker [WATCH]

Despite having so much power in “Survivor: David vs. Goliath” that the other castaways all called him the Godfather, Carl Boudreaux was eliminated at the end of the two-hour episode on Wednesday, November 28. The vote was razor thin between Carl, who received five votes, and Alison Raybould, who earned four. But thanks to the new five-person alliance of Alison, Christian Hubicki, Gabby Pascuzzi, Kara Kay and Mike White, Carl was sent to the jury house. Watch the latest “Survivor” Ponderosa video above.

“For me I never got too cocky,” Carl swore on his way to meet up with Elizabeth Olson, John Hennigan, Dan Rengering and Alec Merlino. “Every time I came to tribal I made sure I brought everything with me because I knew in this game anything can happen. It happened to me tonight but ultimately I’m okay with everything that took place.”

When he first set foot in Fiji Carl weighed 154 pounds, but after 30 days on the “Survivor” diet he dropped down to 144 pounds. Carl notably didn’t get to partake in any reward challenges until the last one when he, Davie Rickenbacker, Kara and Mike won a trip aboard a speedboat with food and beer.

“For some reason, this morning when I woke up I just felt deep down inside that my wife is here in Fiji,” Carl divulged. “Before I left home she said to do everything I could to get to the loved ones visit, so that’s probably the only letdown that I have. [Being eliminated] is not so bad after all, because I still have a part to play in this game.”

As for Carl’s lasting effect on the reality TV show, he has eternal bragging rights as the first castaway to come into contact with an idol nullifier. He said, “I would hope to be in ‘Survivor’ history, you know what I mean? The first time the nullifier has ever been in the game, I got it, I played it and I played it correctly. So yeah, hopefully I am remembered by a bunch of ‘Survivor’ fans for that move and just for the fact of me being me.”
