In Survivor Ponderosa, Gabby Pascuzzi talked about her attempt to blindside her closest ally in the game.
During the episode, when Gabby saw Christian embrace his girlfriend Emily and she repeatedly uttered “true love.” Gabby says that it made her realize that she has to separate herself from him and make an impression on the jury.
“I can’t let myself get lured into that sense of security, like ‘Oh, Christian’s looking out for me. Christian’s got my back.’ I need to play for me.”
Many Survivor fans took to Twitter to express their opinion on Gabby’s motive to blindside Christian and it had a lot to do with his girlfriend.

My soap opera take: Gabby sees Christian’s long-time girlfriend and realizes she never had a chance. She disguised her jealousy and disappointment as a desire to make a big move. She loses everything.

In the Ponderosa episode, Gabby stated that she had to get rid of her number one ally in Christian, who is also the biggest threat in the game. She did not mention his girlfriend as a factor in her decision.
Gabby told the Ponderosa castaways that she was behind the blindside and she stated that their reactions convinced her that had she been successful, it would have made a positive impression on the jury.
Davie warned Christain about the impending blindside to further shield himself behind castaways who are perceived as big threats.
In the next episode of Survivor, can Christian continue to find a way to outwit, outplay and outlast?
Survivor airs Wednesday at 8/7c on CBS.
