    • Frosti (on why he refused to give eye-contact to any of his former tribe members during one of the challenges on "Survivor"): Well, one thing that nobody really saw was is that there's definitely a lot of pressure from Todd and Amanda. The first thing I did when I got to Fei Long was talk to Todd. I felt like I could connect with somebody like him, he was a small guy like me. He really seemed to be in control of what was going on over there. So, I went and talked to him and was like basically, what did I have to do to get in his good graces because it seemed like he was sort of running the show. And he basically told me what I had to do, which was prove myself to all of them, gain trust, and one of the big things that I got from talking to Todd and Amanda and Jean-Robert ... they all said they basically didn't want to see me trying to throw signals to the other team. Telling them what I was doing or anything like that because, basically, it made sense.

    • Frosti (talking about life on the Zhan Hu tribe): Well, life at the Zhan Hu camp was, well, like after we got rid of people like Dave, it was pretty relaxed. We're all pretty good friends so we spent a lot of time hanging out, talking. Once we didn't have to work on the shelter anymore, we had a roof, we had blankets. There was a lot of hanging out and we'd go swimming. I spent a whole lot of my time in the water diving for like, clams and muscles. It was a really good experience there. We played limbo and stuff like that. It was a lot of fun, as opposed to the Fei Long camp where it seemed to be like, really conflicting personalities. I spent a lot of time just basically bonding with the people over there. Yeah we talked strategy, but a lot of it was just hanging out.

    • Frosti (on if he prepared before joining "Survivor"): Well, I didn't have a lot of notice before I left. Basically my theory training routine is pretty great, physical training for the show. Obviously, I tried to buff up on Survivor facts. More than anything, I didn't want to watch too many seasons before I came because I didn't want to play the game exactly like everyone else had already played it. I basically did like minimal training and I tried to eat more. Everybody wants to gain weight, but it's hard when you're working out all the time. I did about a million push ups a day.

    • Frosti (when asked if he was a fan of "Survivor" before joining and if he always wanted to be on the show): Yeah. I specifically remember hanging out in my living room with my dad watching that show. I started really thinking like: 'Oh, I'd totally be good at that.' I mean you look at someone like Ozzy from Cook Islands and be like: 'Oh, that could be me. I could be that guy getting coconuts out of a tree.' That show was made for me. Obviously, I'm only 20 so I never thought I'd get a chance to be on Survivor. It's the original reality game show. It's the ultimate challenge and being allowed to be on it was just an amazing opportunity and I'm really thankful that they tweaked those rules just a little bit to slide me in.
