'Survivor' castaway Kelley Wentworth: I have an unseen dark side and want to make people miserable
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/21/2015
Survivorcastaway Kelley Wentworth apparently wanted to be a quiet storm in Cambodia.
Wentworth, who previously finished Survivor: San Juan del Sur in fourteenth place, planned to keep a low profile during Season 31 but wreak havoc underneath the surface.
"I'm not calling myself 'Chaos Kelley' -- that would be too ridiculous -- but I'm not here to sing camp songs, either," Wentworth toldParade magazine at the beginning of filming, making a reference to Kass McQuillen's famous nickname.
"I want to make these people's lives miserable. [Rob "Boston Rob" Mariano] said once that fear keeps people loyal. I want to make things a little crazy. I think that's all I can do. But I don't want people to know it's me. I don't want them to suspect me."
Wentworth went intoSurvivor Cambodia: Second Chance confident and ready to stir the pot and boil water -- metaphorically speaking.
"I don't give a f-ck who you are: I want to win," she said. "I don't care if everyone hates me if I vote out Kelly Wiglesworth first. I don't care. You're just another player to me."
Wiglesworth heartbreakingly finished as the runner-up of Survivor's inaugural season.
Despite her big plans, Wentworth intended to sail under the radar.
"I feel like [Abi-Maria Gomes], Kass, [Spencer Bledsoe], [Stephen Fishbach] -- these are the people I'm constantly talking about, because they enter my mind right away. I hope that people look at me as the blonde girl who can't even vote out her dad. 'What's she going to do?' That's the ideal situation -- that no one would expect that I'm going to do anything necessarily," Wentworth told Parade.
She also didn't want to be associated with Jeremy Collins even though everyone knew they're very close.
"This is a different game. I am okay with [Keith Nale] because I don't think people look at him and think he's a threat in any way. I don't think they associate us because we didn't really work together. In fact, he kind of voted me out!" Wentworth explained.
"If [Jeremy] ends up being in my alliance, great. But I don't want to go into this as a pair."
Two people Wentworth considered working with right off the bat were Ciera Eastin since she seemed "fairly loyal" in Blood vs. Water -- despite the fact she had voted out her own mother Laura Morett -- and Vytas Baskauskas.
"I would love to work with him," she admitted.
Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance premieres Wednesday, September 23 with a special 90-minute broadcast at 8PM ET/PT. The finale of Big Brother's seventeenth season will follow from 9:30-11PM ET/PT.
