Christa “had a sneaking suspicion that [Jon] was lying” about his grandma.
Although she’d be perfectly justified hating on both Jon and Sandra, Survivor Pearl Islands‘ latest castoff isn’t upset at either of them. In fact, she says “it’s a game” and says, “I definitely don’t have hard feelings toward anybody.” Of Sandra, who let Christa take the blame for dumping the tribe’s food, Christa tells TV Guide, “I never would have thrown out the fish in the first place, but if I did, I never would have told anybody, either. It sucked to be me at the time.” She also says that she wasn’t surprised to learn that Jon is a stupid liar: “Having been on the same tribe as Jon from the beginning, I had heard a lot about his grandma. And so, I had a sneaking suspicion that he was lying. Even the day afterward, he was laughing and rolling on the ground. I thought, ‘Nobody is this happy after their grandma dies.'”
