Survivor Worlds Apart: Behind-the-scenes at Ponderosa

So whose back do you have in Survivor: Worlds Apart? I have no-one's because they all need a mega smack. I'm finding them so unbelievably annoying I don't want any of them to win.
The only person I've been sort-of rooting for over the past few weeks is Shirin because she's made things interesting and now she's been whacked so that's over.
I've had a weird relationship with her since the start because I couldn't stand her at the beginning. Her copy of Richard Hatch's naked booty made me choke on my wine but then slowly I started warming to her because she always has something to say.

I also felt for her when she shared her domestic violence story while having moments of feeling suspicious of it too, thinking: Is she saying this for sympathy so the rest of them won't vote for her?

Ultimately I've decided that it's a good thing she spoke about it no matter what the motivation - it's the only way to raise awareness of the impact on those who've been through the same horror.
She talks about it a lot at Ponderosa* where she takes over completely after getting voted out. She even starts ordering room service, which the other losers seem to find amusing. Here's a vid. of what happened behind-the-scenes after she got voted out:

*Ponderosa is the name given to the place that the jury stays each season.

Hey! Thanks for the Ponderosa clip Tashi. Yes Shirin is one of the most interesting characters to feature on the show. I didn't mind her all that much and was rooting for her towards the end. Otherwise seriously one of the most unlikeable bunch of people to make it to the end of the show, Rooting for Mike now (and there were times when I didn't like him either).
