Survivor: Philippines Winner Denise Stapley Predicts Abi-Maria Gomes’ Chances in Survivor Second Chance


Survivor: Philippines Winner Denise Stapley was first aligned with, and the opposed to Abi-Maria Gomes.

Now Gomes returns to Survivor in Survivor Second Chance, and Inside Survivor did an interview with Stapley about Gomes’ chances on the new season.

“How do you think Abi will change her game on Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance?”

Denise Stapley – I have NO idea how she will change her game. But I do believe that going in she has a much better awareness of how her social game needs to change. The question will be, can she maintain that? I firmly believe we are who we are and who Abi was in the first go around is who she will be in the second go round, just a lighter version.

“What is Abi’s secret weapon to win?”

Denise Stapley – I believe her Brazilian charm. If she can engage a group of men to bring her in, initially she will be seen as no threat to them, she can stroke their ego and they can stroke hers. Then she can slide right to the end.

“Who on the Second Chance cast do you see Abi potentially aligning with?”

I can actually see Kass and Abi aligning, more by Kass’s driving that initially than Abi. There are fewer young guys out there which is who I see Abi drawn to. So Joe or even Woo.
