Thats the word from Michael Bortone, who was voted off Survivor: Micronesia Fans vs. Favorites this past Thursday (Feb. 28).
Bortone who fought on the fans side says he wasnt surprised by how hard the game was, but it certainly wasnt a walk in the park either.
He explains, I had fun, but they didnt show the cuts and bumps and bruises I was constantly getting. I had to put wet shoes on just to walk on the beach it was either that or walk barefoot and open up all the blisters on my feet.
But while Bortone wasnt able to beat his competition, he was able to walk away from the show with something special.
Bortone says, Most people havent experienced being physically and mentally drained and away from their family for 40 days. It gives you an appreciation for life.
Survivor: Micronesia airs Thursdays on CBS.
