Taylor Stocker is not the first castaway to toss a verbal grenade in the middle of tribal council only to have it blow up in his own face and cause him to hear Jeff Probst speak those fateful words: “The tribe has spoken.”
When he came clean about stealing food from the tribe and stashing it so he’d have his own private food supply, that pretty much sealed his fate and made his torch-snuffing an inevitability.
Taylor joins Erin Cebula and Parvati Shallow in a brand-new edition of ET Canada’s Post Tribal podcast, and Parvati sums it up pretty much perfectly when she points out: “You were a very strong personality from day one. You had a showmance that you were not trying to hide. You stole food and you didn’t even try to hide that.”
Looking back now, how does Taylor have any regrets about how he played the game?
“Obviously, when you get out you have a lot of regrets, or you wish you would have done things differently,” he admits. “For me, I think the only thing I could have done towards the end that I really wanted to and it just didn’t pan out, was teaming up with Chris. I really, in the game, wanted to work with him, even when our tribes were split. I just knew he was going to be a fierce competitor and I wanted him on my side. And I never got the opportunity to do it and every chance I did he was already locked in and there was no negotiating.”
