‘Survivor’: Jess Chong Says Her Experience On Yanu Was More Like A ‘Middle School Cafeteria’ Than A ‘Meritocracy’

This week on “Survivor,” Jess Chong was voted out of the game by the Yanu tribe after a tense episode. Access Hollywood spoke to Jess about her time on the show, including the reasons she was ready to go home, how hundreds of hours without sleep took a toll on her, and how her experience on Yanu reminded her more of a “middle-school cafeteria” than a “meritocracy.” “I couldn’t squeeze water from stone. There’s only so much agency someone can have, especially around people that have already made their minds up about something, or people who have a very specific idea of how they want to play and are maybe not as flexible as you’d like them to be,” she shared. Jess also shared details on her decision to target Kenzie, Q’s fake idol ploy, her “idol hunt” with Tiffany and Bhanu’s statements at tribal council. “Survivor” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
