Jill was in good shape early in the game despite the Espada tribe losing match after match, until the producers did a complete 180 on their Old vs Young gimmick, as well as the short lived medallion of power. Of course they didn’t change the very weak challenges, but that’s a different story.
When Jill was moved to the LaFlor tribe with Marty and Jane, they were instantly out-numbered by a very tight young tribe, and their days were quickly numbered despite having an immunity idol. Marty tried to be honest and show them the idol, but that only made it easier for the young tribe to pick them off. It was sad how it worked out between two very bright players, but when numbers are against you, there is only so much you can do.
Jill opened up to fancast.com with a pretty interesting interview. Here are some clips
You know, I can’t. I was shocked to see a lot of sides of Jane last night. We didn’t treat her badly at Espada. And Jane had a couple of medical things, minor, not enough to warrant medical treatment from the production staff, but minor medical issues that I helped her out with. And she kind of ran off and did her own thing. It’s not like she came to Marty and I and said, “I want to be in an alliance with you, “ and we said, “No.” She was in an alliance with Wendy Jo and Holly, she was loosely aligned with Jimmy T. She was picking bad alliances. But she never came to us. And for her to say we treated her badly, especially after I’d taken care of her was pretty shocking.
I think Jane’s got a bit of a vindictive streak. I think she’s pretty easily pointing the finger at other people. She sees nothing wrong with what she’s doing by hoarding coconuts and fish. And I’ve seen people online who are like, “They’re her fish, she caught them.” And that might be, but while she’s catching fish I’m filling her canteen with water. She may be up at 5:30, but there’s someone up at 1, 3, and 5 a.m. stoking the fire. We all have our part, so it’s not like she’s the only one working. So she’s cheating, lying, and I think pretty reprehensible.
Honestly, I felt angry at first, but in reflecting and thinking about this person and how she abused me and Marty and how she conducts herself…I guess I feel pity for her that life has made her turn out this way.
Jill has some points, Jane did pick some really horrible alliances and didn’t do anything to save them. When Wendy was up for vote, she didn’t step in, and her alliance with Holly was weak at best. Jill and Marty had a great chance to go all the way (and not in that way, she claims they were just friends), but the producers really screwed them over.
