Rupert Boneham is one of Survivor's most iconic characters. When he returned for Survivor: Blood vs. Water, he competed with his wife, Laura.
But it fell apart two minutes into the game. Laura, 44, was immediately voted out of her tribe. Rupert chose to take her place on Redemption Island. After losing the first challenge, he finished the game in last place.
Laura managed to last longer than anyone expected, until she was blindsided by her tribe, sent to Redemption Island on Day 18, and left for good the next day. She talks to PEOPLE about her game – and emerging from her husband's shadow.

Something's rotten on Survivor.
You got a whiff of it when Aras went off by himself to meditate, leaving the rest of the tribe behind to gossip and plot. You could sniff it when Vytas smirked in self-satisfaction at Tribal Council.

ROB & AMBERAt last there were no more backs to stab, no more stale rice to choke down, no more fat naked guys to avoid spooning with at night. There was only a long bus ride to the airport in Panama after the last tribal council for Rob and Amber, the two finalists from Survivor: All-Stars. "They were asleep and they were wasted away; I mean there was nothing left of them," says host Jeff Probst, who rode with them. "But they were in each other's arms and they just looked so content. I was watching them thinking, 'This is a couple in love.' "
