JOIE CHEN, CNN ANCHOR: We want to go back now to one of our stories earlier in the hour. That would be the follow-up to "Survivor II." Our guest this hour has rather a unique perspective on all that. Kelly Wigglesworth outlasted the best of the survivors last season. In the end, she was beaten out only by Richard Hatch.
Well, we're glad to see you today, Kelly. You survived watching, I guess, the first night of the new "Survivor." What did you think?
KELLY WIGGLESWORTH, FRM. "SURVIVOR" CAST MEMBER: I thought it was interesting. It was neat to see a different people going through the same -- same situations we went through. It was...

So, you really had to base it on who you don't get along with, who you don't, you know, blend well with. And I could tell early on that she was kind of rubbing some people the wrong way.
CHEN: So you could tell the vibe was definitely negative?
WIGGLESWORTH: Yes, the vibe was negative, you know, so I could kind of tell she was going.
