When he first started competing on Survivor: Caramoan, Michael Snow settled into the majority alliance and made few waves.

But after a tribal swap, a merge, and decimation of his tribe, Snow found himself outnumbered and voted out on day 25.

As the first member of the jury, the 44-year-old event planner from New York shares his thoughts on the remaining contestants, and claims that the game's oldest woman is also playing the most cutthroat game.

Every season, there's a Survivor contestant who flies under the radar and doesn't get much airtime.

This season, it was Julia Landauer, a 21-year-old race car driver from New York. Despite being well-liked and athletic, Landauer was voted off after her alliance was outnumbered. She tells PEOPLE about her experience – and how fellow castaway Phillip Sheppard drove everyone crazy.

Julia, we didn't see much of you on the show – and John Cochran called you "vanilla."
I know! It's so wrong. I'm totally not vanilla! I'm mint chocolate chip.

Survivor's Artis Silvester: I'm Not an Angry Man

In the background of every episode of Survivor, there was Artis Silvester – growling, frowning, pacing. But the 53-year-old computer engineer tells PEOPLE he was having the time of his life, although he still carries a grudge against one player.

You tried out for Survivor several times. Why did it take so long?
I started trying out at season 2. Then I got cancer. They pulled a big mass out of my neck and I lost about 60 lbs. during chemo and radiation. But I kept trying, and I was thrilled to be cast.

Watching the show, you always looked angry. Didn't you enjoy your Survivor experience?
I wasn't angry. It's hard to watch the show now, knowing how much fun I had, and seeing that it was not being shown. I had a blast out there. [Laughs] I need to work on that. When I'm not smiling, I look like I'm about to take somebody's head off. People were scared of me. But the only person I was angry at was Mike Skupin.

Okay, about that. What happened between the two of you?
