Jenna, a 23-year-old account executive from Detroit, MI -- who was living in California prior to her appearance on the show -- talked to Reality TV World in an exclusive interview on Thursday following her Survivor: Ghost Island elimination.While opening up about her experience on the show and time spent with Sebastian, a 22-year-old fishing guide from Melbourne, FL, Jenna disclosed the couple are officially together and still going strong to this day."I think Michael knew he was in trouble because the target on him was huge," says Probst. I don't think anyone is going to think he's 18. You can fake it like you do, and maybe you're ahead of the game a little, but he is an 18-year-old kid."But an equally interesting story was Kellyn's determination to make her own move and further her own game by using her extra vote. Everything's getting better.' I always think if you have momentum coming into the show from a point of growth, that could be really advantageous — unless you start walking around trying to help everyone else grow, in which case you become a preacher, and nobody wants that." Here's what Probst thinks about Jenna now: "I really liked Jenna pregame and the more she played the more I understood what it was I found appealing. Like any of us, she wants to work on parts of herself, but she has a very quiet calm about her. Even when she is upset, she uses a measured tone to express it. She seemed to appreciate even the driest of humor." Here's what Probst said about Michael before the game: "He lives his life as a 23-year-old. I'm curious how that's going to go." Here's what Probst thinks about Michael now: "Well, even with the pregame praise I underestimated him by at least a decade."The idea came from executive producer Matt Van Wagenen.
This time, both "tribes" were forced to vote someone out at two ensuing Tribal Councils, with one individual in each group immune from the vote.
Those are fun moments because it's a reminder that we are always 'live.' Even though we are technically shooting the show and coming back to Los Angeles to edit, we shoot it in the same way you would shoot a live show. Sturdy allies Domenick Abbate and Wendell Holland started whispering to each other in the middle of the event, causing paranoia among the others in the group: Kellyn Bechtold, Laurel Johnson and Michael Yerger. The only thing that would concern me for Michael is that he really is only 18.
Kellyn wound up using a hidden advantage she found earlier in the game, and Michael's bluff about having an idol he never truly possessed didn't quite pan out; the fan-favorite teenager was ultimately sent home, with no more tricks in his bag. Mostly they'll go, ' I'm actually 32,' and then you look on their Facebook page and they're 70! Michael carries himself, for the most part, not like an 18-year-old. You can't have the maturity of a 23-year-old when you're 18.

It's far from the first time Survivor has delivered a double-elimination episode, but it's certainly the first time such an episode has played out in this fashion — one with eerie similarities to the first Fiji season, albeit with much more time to strategize between the challenge and vote.
