Peachy points out that Christy was "one of the most memorable" Survivor characters of all time, and that it wasn't entirely because she was deaf. Even though it pretty much was. She had her work cut out for her because "it is tough trying to play a social game when you can't hear." Not to mention when the people you're playing with/against are offensively, confidently, and inconceivably ignorant. He tells us that most of Christy's interactions centered on her differences from everyone else, but her letter from home reminded everyone that "in her world, [hearing people are] the ones who are different." We see the clip in which Christy reads her friend's letter calling her competitors "those hearing people," and advising that there was a "whole other world waiting for" Christy when she came home. Peachy asks how it felt to be in a game with fifteen other people who didn't care whether she could hear. Christy responds that it was "the toughest game she ever played," which isn't saying all that much: for a million dollars, it should be the toughest game she's ever played. Did she expect it to be less difficult than that raucous game of Chutes and Ladders back in 1986? Christy boasts that she improved, learned, and did "awesome." The sign for "awesome," incidentally, kind of looks like "raise the roof." Surprisingly, no one applauds this statement; the audience is probably still in shock and feeling slightly betrayed by her vote for Jenna.
Peachy reveals that there were several Tribal Council conversations which didn't make the episodes when even he was reminding Christy that she was acting like everyone else should help her, and that it wasn't going to happen. He thinks she realized at some point that she'd have to just play the game and stop worrying about "whether [she] hear[s], whether [she's] deaf, whatever." Christy says she accepted early in the game -- after Joanna was voted out -- that if she kept pursuing the game from the perspective of a deaf person trying to work with the hearing people, she'd get voted out. Instead, she decided, "Fine," which is a particularly endearing gesture -- kind of like she's throwing something away and turning her head from it. Instead, she'd just play the game and see how far she could go. She grins cutely while Alex fist-bops her.
Peachy isn't done with her yet, and wants to talk about when she got voted out. He points out that did indeed have the power, although it didn't last as long as she thought it would. He asks why it didn't work out, and she laughs, points at Rob, and responds, "This little man over here." Peachy's not having it and snits, "Well, I don't think so." He adds that Christy did have the power to control the vote, and Christy admits that she did, but claims that she wasn't willing to backstab, sneak, or "try to make sure the plan was really working." Peachy busts out the "You didn't even have a plan!" He points out that HeiDDi and Jenna approached Christy, but that she wouldn't give them an answer. He asks them what the result would have been if she'd accepted their offer, and Jenna responds, "It would have been on -- the girls...against everybody else." HeiDDi reveals that she and Jenna both promised Christy that if they made up the final three together, they'd each take her to the final two with them, and Rob jumps in to say, "All she had to say was, 'Rob, I'm in.'" Christy smiles speechlessly at Peachy's surprise attack. He concludes that her "indecision" knocked her out of the game, and doesn't that seem fair? She agrees that it does seem fair, but what doesn't seem fair is Peachy's assault against her when there are so many other condemnable personalities to pick on.
Peachy has to ask Rob -- because he played the game well and has a "handle" on it -- what he would describe as the key to Survivor. Rob thinks you need to know where you stand, and have a "working relationship" with the other competitors. You don't necessarily need to be friends with them, but you need to know where they stand and where they think they stand. Then, when you figure out that you're not "in the bigger group anymore, you need to flip it." Rob admits that at certain points -- when you realize you're not where you need to be -- you need to "lie, backstab, cheat, steal...whatever you need to do!"
