Rob says Jenna is “a great player”; Rich says Rob is “best player since me.”
At the Survivor Amazon wrap party, held at Tao, TV Guide talked to Rob Cesternino about his third place finish. He says Matt Von Ertfelda “thought he was the master strategist. He thought he was in a position where he didn’t have to win the final Immunity,” which possibly led to Jenna’s victory. Rob also says Jenna is “a great player,” and also says the two are friends. “I don’t think you got to see on TV how close friends we are.” The magazine also talked to Richard Hatch, winner of the first Survivor. He says that although Rob is “the best player since me,” Jenna’s win “wasn’t dumb luck. It’s the game. I can’t really say she played the best of anybody, but others didn’t play well enough to keep her from winning.” Rich also offers his thoughts on the show’s men, saying he thought rocket scientist Dave was the cutest, except “[h]e looked kinda goofier or something [at the reunion] … because he had his shirt on.”
