“As a Christian, it is definitely an opportunity to see how well you can go out and play a non-Christian game. That was what I chose: to take an opportunity to play a game and be someone totally different than who I am. Don’t get mewrong: I still had my morals. But because I knew I was playing a game, I could truly put my morals aside and play. It is within the context of a game, so I didn’t feel bad about anything I did or anything I said.”

–Vecepia Towery-Robinson,a professing Christian and winner of CBS’ reality game show Survivor: Amazon in an interview with Christianity Today magazine. Towery-Robinson tells CT the Holy Spirit led her to the Survivor application online as she was reading the OT Book of Habakkuk.
