Jill: Jane is a “pretty reprehensible” cheater and liar who “abused me”

On Survivor Nicaragua, ER doctor Jill Behm was very quiet, making subtle moves, and never really standing out or speaking up in any signfiicant way. That’s not true now that she’s been voted out, as she’s slamming Jane pretty hard.

“I think Jane’s got a bit of a vindictive streak. I think she’s pretty easily pointing the finger at other people,” Jill told Fancast, noting that even though Jane did catch fish, other people did work like filling canteens and stoking the fire. “We all have our part, so it’s not like she’s the only one working. So she’s cheating, lying, and I think pretty reprehensible. … Honestly, I felt angry at first, but in reflecting and thinking about this person and how she abused me and Marty and how she conducts herself … I guess I feel pity for her that life has made her turn out this way.”

As to Jane’s claims that Jill and Marty treated her badly on their original tribe, Jill said she helped Jane with “minor medical issues” throughout the game, and “It’s not like she came to Marty and I and said, ‘I want to be in an alliance with you,’ and we said, ‘No.’ She was in an alliance with Wendy Jo and Holly, she was loosely aligned with Jimmy T. She was picking bad alliances. But she never came to us. And for her to say we treated her badly, especially after I’d taken care of her was pretty shocking.”

In the interview, Jill also insists there was nothing romantic with Marty, as Jimmy T. suggested (“I don’t know if Jimmy T. understands that you can have relationships with people without romance”) and says she had a secret alliance with Yve. Most interestingly, she reveals why Brenda wanted Kelly B. out of the game, and it wasn’t because Kelly has one leg (which may explain why all of Brenda’s comments about that sounded so fake). Jud/Fabio “voted for Brenda in the first Tribal Council, and Brenda thought it was Kelly B. That’s why Brenda wanted her out so bad. So Fabs has had some luck in this game. And nobody was too bent out of shape about him peeing in the pool,” Jill said.

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
