He had reservations initially but ended up bonding with everyone. The show exceeded his expectations, particularly enjoying the missions and staying true to himself. Winning is less important to him than the experience and learning about himself. He humorously notes his lack of speed in missions and emphasizes how his family has been his driving force.
Evie finds her progress to the final five surreal yet deserving, citing her quiet but effective gameplay. A key moment was identifying Paul as a Traitor, which significantly impacted her game plan. She underestimated the show’s scale and intensity but adapted well.
Evie believed her low-profile strategy might succeed, stating, “My plan has been working… so far!” Winning would make her feel “really smart and accomplished.” She enjoyed the funeral mission for its over-the-top nature and how it helped her solidify suspicions. The show reinforced her belief that she doesn’t need to be the most noticeable person to succeed, valuing genuine connections.
Harry describes his progress as “mind-blown,” attributing it to a mix of strategy and luck. He fondly recalls the shield play in a tunnel mission as a highlight. Initially, Harry had no expectations and was surprised to last in the game.
He didn’t expect to reach the final five, feeling lucky with how others’ gameplay intertwined with his. Winning would be life-changing, especially at his young age. He enjoyed the missions, particularly the physical and mental challenges they presented. Harry learned about his mental strength and resilience in the show, a realization that surprised him.
Jaz feels incredible about her journey, grateful for the hard work he put in. Initially wanting to be a Traitor, he adapted to being a Faithful, focusing on vigilance and strategy. A standout moment was being a team captain in a gold-digging mission.
The show exceeded his expectations, offering a larger and more intense experience. Jaz aimed to win to prove the strength of Faithfuls, valuing the experience over the prize money. He learned to appreciate life’s everyday moments and the importance of facing challenges head-on, saying, “You really have to appreciate a simple thing of being able to wake up every morning.”
Mollie is ecstatic about reaching the final, having never expected to go this far. She highlights both the stress and excitement of the missions and forming close bonds with other contestants. Favorite moments include humorous incidents and successful Traitor catches.
The show surpassed her expectations in terms of friendships and experiences. Mollie didn’t anticipate reaching the final five, feeling that every day in the competition is a surprise.
