We didn’t get to see too much of Rick Nelson’s time on Survivor: South Pacific, which became a widespread joke for fans, but the 51-year-old rancher from Utah finally showed up on the finale. When he got to the final five, Rick found himself on the bad side of the vote and was cut loose from the Te Tuna tribe — and his elimination sparked an angry reaction. After the live reunion show in Hollywood, I had the chance to interview Rick on the red carpet to talk all about his time on the show. In our discussion, Rick revealed why he voted for Coach to win the game (even though he was angry with him), talked about his lack of visibility on the show, explained his fame status in his small hometown and weighed in on that butt squeeze he gave his wife during the family visit. Read on to watch my exclusive video interview!
