#IStandWithDrea

 

Has anyone else been keeping up with the Drea/Omar/RHAP stuff?

Yes, I was shocked! I listened to the podcast before it was edited, and I feel like CBS asked them to take it down and remove the Ponderosa parts?

I also feel like maybe this drama is the reason there was no Ponderosa videos this season, to not put this drama on blast...

ikr, like this is so messy. I would not expect this from a show like survivor. And I don't remember where I read this but I read somewhere that the reason there was no ponderosa this season is that shan had a problem with the ponderosa production crew last season so they decided to take a season off from it to re evaluate

Can yall fill me in on what happened?!?!

What could be Shan's issue with Ponderosa production? Sounds dumb.

So basically during Omar's RHAP post season interview he revealed that Drea was rude to him at ponderosa     . She said that he faked his religion/praying, targeted minorities purposely, and was lying about his fathers death. About a week after the podcast came out people realized that the part where Omar talked about ponderosa was now edited out. Nobody knows why it was edited out, however rob said that he did not want it to be edited out. Drea has not said anything.

Yikes, that's....the first person I'm seeing on her side. The things she said were really bad, I loved Drea and for these things to come out to light suck because she was amazing. Sad

A recap I read on another forum.

" according to him, drea was actively trying to turn everyone against him at ponderosa by making up lies that his prayer sessions were fake so that he could have time to sneak away to strategize, and that he used his prayer to exploit production into finding out the time of day so that he could have an edge over other contestants as far as knowing when TC would be so that he could scramble and manage his time more effectively. she apparently also accused him of targeting people of color to protect lindsey/jonathan. omar and hai had bonded on a personal level about omar's father's passing, but drea apparently also attempted to make omar look bad by saying that they had the exact same conversation (omar claims they did not have a conversation about it and that all she knew was that his dad was deceased) and that he was using it as a ploy to manipulate people. she also apparently told everyone that she had opened up to him about her knowledge-is-power advantage the day after the rocks/tori boots because they were bonding over race after the previous night's tc and were discussing serious issues outside of the game. he says she referred to it as a "moment of weakness" and told him about the advantage then, went on to tell other jurors the same thing for months after the game, which was disproven once the show aired and it was revealed that she had actually told him about the advantage days later. he says he thinks she was embarrassed by her elimination, that she seemed very sure she was going to win, and that she wanted to make sure he didn't win once she was on the jury. he is very clearly still hurt about it and had a pretty miserable time at ponderosa."

Yes thank you haus, I was going off I what I remembered and I got some stuff wrong

Can confirm all of this since I listened to the original podcast. Crazy to hear all this and then also see Drea becoming friends with Johnathan... doesn't seem like either are friends with the rest of the group

yes, I am just so confused. And I'm also wondering what happened to make him edit the podcast

I'm assuming it had to do with lawyers... whether it was on Drea's or CBS's end...

That's definitely disappointing to hear especially with how graceful she went out. I'm hoping she was just still focused in game mode and hurt. I hope she hears how he felt and apologizes. I love Drea and hope this isn't her true character and that we see her again in some form. Also, this is why we need reunions.

Drea has said on Twitter that it's "not true" and then immediately deleted her tweets... not sure where she is planning on going with this but I don't think an apology is coming

Yeah forgot where she said it but she said someone on her cast had an issue with production but it wasn't her.
