Jenna had “a feeling,” “a premonition” that she should go home.
Jenna’s decision to leave Survivor All-Stars to be with her mother seemed to come out of nowhere, and she says it did. “It was just a feeling that I never had before. It was like a premonition. I just felt like I was being pulled out of there. Me and my mom are really close. I knew that I had to go with my gut. It was a very hard decision to make,” she said on Friday’s Early Show. She also says her mother said she should go in the first place: “She said, ‘Go. Don’t worry about me. Everything will be fine.'” When Jenna arrived home, she told her mother she was there, and “She kind of let out this big sigh, like a big, deep breath. She didn’t talk at all or speak or kind of wake up after that.”
