Q: We’ve seen you pitch to Frannie, OK I think it’s easier to take out Matt. From our perspective we already, and you saw it, too. They’re flirting. They’re very close. What made you think that that angle was going to work with her?

Claire: To be completely honest, on that day. Once I knew, I was kind of…talked to Danny. I was gung-ho with whatever Frannie wanted. And Frannie really wanted Josh [Wilder]. So, yes, I definitely like in the episode said that, and at some point on island, I definitely said maybe Matt.

Especially early game, like for the first two tribals, Matt was kind of the person that me, Heidi, Danny [Massa], and Josh were agreeing around. So I was trying to bring Frannie in being like because I was going to probably go that way if three people were going to do it. But I wanted Frannie to be clued in and part of it, so I let her know.
