Debra "Debbie" Beebee thought she was safe after 33 days in Brazil on Survivor: Tocantins. "Everyone told me they were voting for Coach," Debbie tells In Touch. "What you didn't see is that for two days everyone in the tribe kept saying that we had to get rid of Coach." Yet, when the votes were read at tribal council, Debbie's name came up the most. "I was completely blindsided," says Debbie about being voted off the show. But, she doesn't have any hard feelings towards her fellow players. "We truly care about each other," she adds.

Was it nice to spend time with your husband in Brazil?
Debbie: At that point it was amazing to see him. It would have been great to see anyone in my family. You don't even take in to account that we had travel time, so it's been almost 40 days since I'd seen anyone.
What did he think of your living situation?
Debbie: I think he was shocked and appalled. I think he was absolutely shocked that I'd been out there 30 days at that point.
What did you learn from watching the show?
Debbie: I didn't realize that Stephen is quite the little manipulator.
That's what Sierra said to me last week.
Debbie: I really thought that JT was running it, but it was Stephen all along!
Why did you finally think it was time to cut your ties to Coach?
Debbie: I really felt like it was the only way for me to survive out there and to stay in the game. Obviously it didn't work. They assured me that if I switched alliances that I'd be safe with them, but it didn't work out that way.
As a member of the jury what are you paying attention to now?
Debbie: I'm watching for who is playing the game the best. This isn't a game about who's the most honest or who has got the most integrity or who is the strongest. So, I'm going to pick the best play who outwitted everyone.
At this point in the game, who do you think deserves to win at this point?
Debbie: I love what Taj has brought to the game. I think that Stephen is a mastermind; I'm just blown away by what he's done. And I think JT is also a good choice. No one from my original tribe, can you believe that? It should have been me of course!
