'Survivor' interview: Monica not happy with tribal council




I interviewed Monica Culpepper by phone from LA this morning and you can read the full story here. While she was happy with how she played, she was not happy with out that final tribal council that put her through the ringer. It also seemed a bit sexist to her that only the woman is asked to reveal some inner ugliness or expose her heart.

A couple of intriguing takeaways from my interview

--Ex-Buccaneer Brad Culpepper, who was the fifth person eliminated from the game, and ex-teammate Warren Sapp did a “hilarious” tryout video for The Amazing Race and she wouldn’t be surprised if the show came calling. Now that's a video I would love to see.

--Monica Culpepper got a $100,000 second-place prize. That one vote put her as the most winning of Tampa Bay Survivor players. Teacher Jan Gentry came in third in 2002's Survivor Thailand.

--The props, immunity idols and necklaces, torches, banners and more from the season are up for auction here with the proceeds going to Phillipine typhoon relief efforts. (Monica told me she's asking Brad to secure the immunity necklace she won as a Christmas gift)
