Here's Part 2 of the RTVW interview link
Text of interest:
Reality TV World: So what was the reaction when you guys first approached the producers and told them you guys wanted to give up tribal immunity -- did they immediately just say okay, or was it something they had to check the rulebook or get some kind of ruling on, or how did that all unfold?
Bill Posley: I just gotta check with . Am I allowed to talk about the producers' thoughts?
EDITOR'S NOTE: The CBS publicist states those are unbroadcast "behind the scenes" details that are not discussed.
Reality TV World: What I was really looking to ask was last night's episode seemed to go out of its way to suggest that the only way you guys could give up tribal immunity is if everybody in your tribe agreed to do so -- so just to clarify, was that one of the conditions that was in the rulebook or part of the ruling you got from the producers? Because that's something that the show did broadcast but didn't explain in detail.
Bill Posley: Right, right. Once the idea of giving up immunity was put out there, it came to our knowledge that it basically had to be all of us or it couldn't happen. I legitimately felt that either Leif was going home or I had a chance to get Colton, and that's why I went -- I legitimately felt those two things. It was a big move. It was a big move.
I wanted to make a big move and had it have worked, (laughs) -- had it have worked and we blindsided Colton, then you're talking to him about the greatest move that's ever been pulled on somebody and we're waiting to see what Bill does next. At the end of the day, I lost and -- not lost -- but I didn't have those guys backing me like I thought I did and they got me.
