The Traitors 2 featured Sandra Diaz-Twine as one of two women from Survivor.

While Parvati Shallow was brought on as a Traitor by Dan Gheesling from Big Brother and Phaedra Parks from RHOA, Sandra played hard as a Faithful.

Sandra also did well by playing herself close to people she suspected of being Traitors. It almost got her to the end.

Sandra was one of the key people in getting Dan, Parvati, and Phaedra eliminated from the game. This was done while ending her Survivor feud with Parvati and developing a friendship with Phaedra.

Future players may view Sandra’s strategy as one that could work, but her downfall was that she didn’t continue fostering her relationship with one particular Faithful.

Peacock viewers watched as Sandra got turned on by someone she considered a friend in the castle. And it has had a lasting impact on her.

Sandra reacts to MJ turning on her in Scotland

With the cast down to the last five people, Mercedes “MJ” Javid from Shahs of Sunset wouldn’t believe that Kate Chastain was a Traitor. MJ then voted to Banish Sandra, joining the other people at the Roundtable.

In a new interview, Sandra was asked to share her thoughts about MJ getting spurned by Trishelle Cannatella and Chris “CT” Tamburello on the final vote. They voted to eliminate MJ when it was down to just three people. And MJ was upset despite doing the same thing to Sandra earlier in the day.

“She was upset. But here’s the deal: I get it. Because she’s not a gamer. She doesn’t know what it’s like to be voted out or get sent packing on Big Brother [or Survivor] when they vote you out and you’re evicted. So she doesn’t know what it’s like to get taken out of a game,” Sandra told Entertainment Weekly.

“But I had no sympathy, because she had done that to me in our episode. It was essentially like 20 minutes prior, she had banished me and I had to take it. I had to deal with it knowing that all along from day one — because MJ was under fire once in the castle — I protected her,” Sandra added.

“I was like, ‘Don’t worry about it, MJ, you’re not going home. I know you’re Faithful.’ But she didn’t do that for me, so I was a little bit hurt. I didn’t feel bad that they Banished her at the end,” Sandra elaborated.
