Seen & Heard
Li, a product manager in San Francisco, and Rafson, a tech investor based in Brooklyn, both competed on Season 44 of Survivor, CBS’s enduring reality television show. After they were voted off the island, each sat down with various news outlets to discuss their experience.
“Everyone feels like they're meant to be the Sole Survivor. It's a huge rude awakening when that's not the case, and, yeah, it sucks,” Li told Entertainment Weekly of being eliminated.
Rafson said, “I did my thing and no regrets—obviously [I have] regrets that I didn't win or make it further, but that's life and it's going to keep going and I'd obviously love to play again and get another shot. But, for now, this is a really great bookend and I feel really happy with the friends I've made and the experiences I've had.”
