Bobby Jon and Jamie “are friends now”

Survivor Guatemala‘s Bobby Jon and Jamie have kissed and made up, metaphorically speaking. Bobby Jon, or BJ for short, tells TV Guide, “We are friends now. We’ve totally patched things up and I could call him right now if I needed to.”

He says that they had a conflict because “your nerves are running strong and the lack of nutrients and sleep and stuff take a toll on you and you get aggravated. It is like having a bad day at work and you just want to go into your coworker’s office and rip his head off and throw it across the room. But then you go back in there and check on him to see if he’s doing OK.”

Things aren’t quite as friendly between BJ and Stephenie; they are “kind of hot and cold with each other,” he says, because they “annoy” each other. But Bobby Jon had a profound revelation about Stephenie and their relationship. He says, “Stephenie is just another person, like me. She puts on one pant leg at a time like I do.”
