I really do respect her more than a lot of the other cast members (especially the more recent ones). I love being able to get straight up answers from the cast, rather than just being able to see the way they're portrayed by the editors.
Thanks for doing this V1! Really enjoyed her thoughtful responses! It's good to know that I'm not just a crazy conspiracy theorist when it comes to Jenn and Mandi "winning" that rafting mission! Anyone who watched the second half of last weeks episode can see the obvious BS!
[QUOTE=v123;273108]Ev has given glowing reviews to Rachel and Kelly Anne as competitors on multiple occasions through several venues. You have to keep in mind that Rachel has not done a challenge since the Duel 2 and KA, the Ruins, both of which took place quite a while ago. Jodi is another one that she has given serious props to before but again, Jodi has been long gone. Most of the competitors she listed with exception of Chanda are a bit more recent. She gives due to Rachel in this video.

Makes sense she left them off as it has been a while since they were on a challenge. I guess Chanda really stuck out to her! I agree with her though, I want to see a Duel 3 with all the top guns!!
It upsets me that she didnt mention KellyAnne. I hope they are still friends :(
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;273244]It upsets me that she didnt mention KellyAnne. I hope they are still friends :([/QUOTE] On a Ustream with Laurel and Cara Maria somebody asked Evelyn if she was still good friends with KellyAnne and she said no. Didn't look like a topic she cared to go much further on.

Great interview and thank you for doing it V1man (and Ev). With this challenge and now interview, she is quickly becoming one of my all time favorites. I remember I didn't like her at first because of her being Danny's partner, complete 180 from FM1.
Guys, stuff happens in the real world completely unrelated to TV. Evelyn elected not to talk about it the video chat with Laurel and Cara Maria, and she didn't answer a question from us. "Pack it up, move on" is my advice.
I'm super shocked she didnt mention Kelly Anne and Tonya's names more. Especially as far as tough women and fantasy cast women. Strange. But I do LOVE Ev.
I note that she didn't mention Wes when it came to 100% trust. Odd, considering Wes is always so nice to her and seems to be one of the few people on the show that genuinely likes and respects her input.
Chanda... Now there is a name I haven't heard in a long, long time... [url=http://vevmo.com/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=11508][img]http://vevmo.com/imagehosting/38264e55e270bf9ed.jpg[/img][/url]

But I do LOVE Ev.[/QUOTE] I think it's evident that she is doing her best to avoid discuss KA on any public level. In regards to Tonya, I do remember reading a post here quoting Evelyn and her placements of all the women on the Ruins in order from strongest to weakest with Tonya falling squarely right above Susie, only behind herself, KA, Diem and Sarah I believe.
I'm so glad she answered the question about her ribs. I believed her because she's one of the few on there that I think is truly honest and genuine but it just seemed off with how she was behaving and moving around. It makes sense though... pain killers can make you feel invincible hahah. I just assumed since people said she didn't see a medic so she wasn't sent home that she wouldn't have had them. Love this interview, love her and love you V1man. <3

Great Interview.. gave a sense of a really honext, complex and real person.. which may not always be everyone's favorite person, but someone that you would give anything to have on your side. =)
I love her so much! Favorite competitor for sure. So, if we have questions about the final, you're willing to take them via private message, [B]V1man[/B], to possibly pass along?

You can always pm me, though, since it looks like I'll be talking to Evelyn and a few other cast members during the live feed from Vegas Bash on Sept 16. (Vision 1 Media Group is one of the event sponsors)
Evelyn seems so intelligent. I've always respected that she was able to have her own mind and she is capable of being interesting on the shows without being fake or starting stupid drama. She's so right about people being so fickle. I remember on Gauntlet 3, people were giving her a lot of hate because they weren't happy about how it ended with Coral on there. Then the next challenge she did The Island, people loved her once she was the outcast. People are so fickle. People loved Wes not hate him. I also don't get why the guys from the mob are calling Evelyn a transvestite like she said. She does not look manly at all. She's very cute. Women can be strong without being manly!

V1, On the Rules board for Sleep or Stand last night, it said the teammates had to switch from sleeping to standing every hour. How was Ev allowed to Stand all night?

Could you ask her?
I'm glad that her and Johnny get along. I think that Johnny just plays the part to get attention on Twitter and such, trying to build his "Johnny Bananas" brand. I like him and I like her, so I wish that he would just stop. I'm also a little surprised she didn't say KellyAnne is in the Top 5 females or her Top 5 desired team members. And I think she's just trying to build Paula up, because although I like Paula, I don't think she's top 5, sorry. Also curious about the steroid use. I think BMP should monitor that better. That's not okay. I can only think of Danny as someone possibly. Some people do train hard for these and it gives the Challenges a bad name.

[QUOTE=GivingTree;273705]Which is ironic because Tonya beat Diem, lol.[/QUOTE] Winning an elimination round that the other person is throwing really doesn't count though.
[QUOTE=g30068g;273698]Could you ask her?[/QUOTE] The final interview questions were submitted to her early this morning. It's possible that she might address the "rock rules" in response to one of the questions. Personally, I'm hoping she mentions the other parts of the final challenge that were not shown.
I was indifferent towards Evelyn until the Island speech but shes become my favorite female from these shows because of her Island interview and blog posts. Extremely intelligent and independent.
Would Evelyn be interested in doing a Ustream chat with us Vevmoers? She seemed to enjoy the one with Cara Maria and Laurel, and it was a lot of fun!
Very good read. This interview reaffirms 2 points I have always had about Evelyn. 1) She's a strong competitor whom I have no problem rooting for in Challenges because she plays to win. 2) She is not the type of person I would get along with at all in reality.
Very nice read. Evelyn, I look forward to your 4th win on the challenges and I love that you can stand on your own 2 feet without compromising your integrity. Don't change.
I really like Ev! I wasn't a fan at all until The Island. Her sticking it to those a holes and taking Johnny's key will forever be a top challenge moment! I'd love to see her take part in a Duel format because I know she'd rock it!
