Candice and Adam “are just friends,” she says, despite Tribal Council make-out session

As she exited Tribal Council on Thursday’s episode of Survivor Cook Islands, Candice Woodcock stopped to suck face for a few minutes with Adam, the tribemate she’d been making out with for a few weeks now.

Surprise of all surprises, Candice told The Fayetteville Observer that she and Adam are not going to become the next Romber (Cadam? Adice? whatever). She says, “We are just friends. There’s nothing off the island.”

She even says that all of the spit-swapping (yes, I still have cliche phrases for kissing in my word bank) was strictly for the cameras. “I knew I wanted to go out and have it be interesting because I love the show. I kind of wanted to see some shocked faces. It made for some good TV,” she said.

Mostly, Candice, said, it was just nice to have a warm, if stupid body next to her. “In a game for a million dollars, when all people want to do eventually is stab people in the back, it’s nice to have that,” she told the paper.
