Looking Back: Sarah Lacina's Journey On Survivor
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - For the first time in seven weeks, local Survivor fans are going to have to choose an out-of-state contestant to root for. Cedar Rapids Survivor contestant, Sarah Lacina, was voted out last week, becoming the first member of the jury for Survivor Cagayan.
The merge didn't bode well for Sarah. She was the last to know that she was going home. In the spirit of Survivor, it was a full-fledged blindside.
The self-assurance that had helped Sarah become leader of her Brawn tribe on week one, helped bring her demise at the 7th tribal council.
I will make the decision on who goes home next, I get to decide. I'm the president right now, Sarah said during last weeks episode.
Sitting as the odd man out between two alliances appeared to give Sarah all the power.
I'm at the best spot that you can be at in this game because five and five and guess what, I'm in the middle, it's a Sarah sandwich, it's perfect! Sarah said.
Her confidence rubbed one player, Kassandra Kass McQuilen, a lawyer from California, the wrong way.
In my view, no one in this game should have so much power. Who made her queen? I can't even look at her, I just want to punch her, McQuilen said.
It was that sentiment that others picked up on. Kass was eventually approached to be the middle man in the game, meaning Sarah was headed home.
If she's going to destroy the game, I want to have the preemptive strike, I want to destroy it! McQuilen said.
What Sarah described as her best asset going into the game, had failed her. In an interview at the beginning of the season she told CBS2/FOX28:
I honestly think I can read people pretty well. Right now I'm assigned to the investigative division at the police department, and I do a lot of interviewing and what not, Sarah explained.
However, when Sarah was voted out, it was a total shock to her.
When it said Sarah, I was like huh? We thought we had a solid set of six. I don't know why Kass flipped, they got me good! Sarah said as she left the show.
CBS2/FOX28 has reached out to Sarah for an on camera interview, but the station has so far been unable to connect with Sarah.
