The Galu tribe's lucky streak came to an end during a game of botchy ball on last night's episode of Survivor: Samoa. For the first time they were forced to figure out whose torch to extinguish during the next Tribal Council meeting with host Jeff Probst. But there was one teammate that was thrilled at the prospect of heading into the elimination. "I was ready to go," Yasmin Giles tells In Touch. "I had a rather sheltered childhood, which is why I never went camping," she adds. Yasmin's wish came true when the tribe decided to send her packing instead of their other target, Shambo, who annoyed the tribe by accidentally letting a chicken escape from the coop. "Even tough she lost the chicken, I paid the price," laughs Yasmin.

You didn't seem to be a fan of the jungle?
Yasmin:No, I wasn't. I cracked a joke about the hood isn't the woods, but that was just a saying. That was far from the truth. You're talking to a woman who has never tasted alcohol, so I'd like to know what hood don't have alcohol in it. I've steered clear of so many things because I had a rather sheltered childhood, which is why I never went camping. So, yeah, it was different for me, and it was horrible.
You got to spend some time with Foa Foa, so did you like your tribe or would you rather have been on Foa Foa?
Yasmin: I would have liked a mixture. I didn't care so much for their tribe, but I didn't like my tribe at all, either. I only had two or three favorites. I don't know if you've been paying close attention but my tribe was a little bit cliquish. And when you saw the clique you never saw me in it. So that was one of the things that made me think it was some bull.
Why do you think the Galu tribe turned on you?
Yasmin: I just wanted to play the game. I liked the challenges and I did prove that I was strong in that area. I fell short in other places but I was always there with my game face on and ready to compete. Plus, the fact that I'm real and a lot of them were fake didn't help either.
Do you regret not taking the initiative to do more around camp?
Yasmin: I do to a certain extent, but what I regret more is using my body to make sure that we didn't go to Tribal Council so that they could relax and then complain about me not working around camp. I'm part of the reason that we didn't go to Tribal Council but I'm not working around camp, whatever. A lot of other people weren't working around camp. And I guarantee you I'm not the first and I won't be the last that leaves for not working around camp. John did a lot of sleeping, too!
Galu was lucky enough to win every challenge before, so did the vibe of the tribe change when you finally had to go to Tribal Council?
Yasmin: It did but I was completely happy. I was actually ready to go. Sometimes when you've been beat so bad mentally, nothing else matters. When Jeff put my torch out, I was smiling because I couldn't handle all the foolishness that was going on at camp. My only ally was Shambo. Neither one of us really gelled well with the rest of the tribe. And even though she lost the chicken, I paid the price. I obviously am a little bit more protective about my energy and it just didn't mesh well with some of the other people. If I had it to do all over again? Hell, no.
That was my next question, but you answered it! So, what did you think was the hardest part of being on Survivor?
Yasmin: Having to use the restroom in the jungle. I've been in the entertainment business for the past two years. This wasn't my first encounter with reality TV and it probably won't be my last. But I was looking for a port-a-potty. I wanted them to yell 'Cut" and then we'd go to craft service. But Survivor was the real deal. I was like, you've got to be kidding me.
