“sexually violated, humiliated, dehumanized and totally spent” Sue quits.
Saying she was “sexually violated, humiliated, dehumanized and totally spent,” Sue Hawk quit Survivor All-Stars, making her the second player to leave the game voluntarily. Contact with a naked Richard Hatch increasingly bothered Sue, and at the reward challenge, she went off on Jeff Probst when he mentioned the incident. She said, “There’s no way I can continue with my emotions pushed to the ground that much.” One third of the players who have left the game have done so voluntarily. Richard and Sue appeared together on The Early Show this morning, and Sue said, “Me and Richard have had a chance to sit down and hash it out and talk about the incident. We both have different perspectives about it, but we have come to terms with it and agreed to move forward and look past it.” She said, “Feeling Richard naked next to you is not a good feeling.” Richard said, “I learned something: She’s a sensitive person. … It was emotional.” He said he was “clueless” about the fact that the encounter bothered Sue.
