“Oh my gosh, I wish there was a better word than love,” says Wendy. “It was the best experience ever, ever, ever. I would do it again in a flash, no matter how difficult being away from home is.”

“The only disappointing thing was I just didn’t experience all the things I could experience, like being hungry,” she continues. “I would’ve like to experience what it was like to be starving. We don’t know what starving is and I never really got to feel starving. And I didn’t get to do the challenges, I didn’t get to shine on them. But I loved it.”

As for the older-younger split in the tribes, Wendy says she had a feeling that was the split right from the beginning.

“I knew it! When we were walking through the jungle and seemed to be two separate tribes, I started to doubt myself, but then when they told us what the tribes were, I was like, ‘I knew it!'” she laughs. And don’t count the older tribe out yet.

“I think that absolutely the older tribe has a chance,” Wendy says.

“Survivor: Nicaragua” airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
