Survivor Talk with Castoff J.P. Calderon

He was cute. He was athletic. And if you took in last Thursday’s episode of Survivor, he also thought he was king. But according to J.P. Calderon, that’s not the case. Last Friday, I sat down with the 31-year- old volleyball player, who became the fourth person booted from Survivor. His cockiness was apparent. And he says otherwise, but so was a still lingering hint of hurt from being tossed so shockingly out of the game. Though he messed up which media outlet I’m from, J.P. proved to be charming, likable and had plenty to say.

Shireese: You came across a little bit bossy last night… And I didn’t notice that from you when you were in Aitu, so what happened when you went over?

J.P.: (laughs) In Aitu I would do the same thing, but we never took it as being bossy. I mean if that’s what they thought bossy was then God, I just don’t know how to look at it. Do I look at it as: Well, do I come across that way to people? Should I reexamine myself? Or do I look at it like: Are they that touchy and soft that they’re going to be like—he’s bossy? If they had a problem with me, then why didn’t they say something?

Shireese: They didn’t say it at all.

J.P.: I hate that from people, you know [and] the whole gender thing they did last night …

Shireese: So you didn’t like the editing?
