Jon “wanted to be the most hated person”; grandma thought lie was funny.
Jon Dalton’s friend Dan Fields, who participated in last week’s reward challenge on Survivor Pearl Islands and fed Jon the pre-planned lie about his dead grandmother, tells the New York Post that Jon “is a big wrestling fan and has no emotions toward anyone else.” He says Jon “said he was going down there … to cause some trouble, that he wanted to be the most hated person on the show.” What does grandma think of her grandson’s use of her “death”? Fields says she “thought it was great … She thought it was hilarious.”
