EW: John, what was your mindset in terms of taking out your wife?
JOHN CODY: Before the game started, and after I joined Candice on Redemption Island, we discussed the idea of “playing our own game.” We promised to each play as hard as possible and trust the other to take care of themselves. Of course, that’s easier said than done. To be honest, I was mostly concerned about not going home myself. Candice is great at individual challenges, she always has been, and at that point I was completely untested in that arena. I assumed going in that Candice was going to finish first and that it would come down to Marissa and me, and I definitely didn’t want to be the guy who’s wife bumps him out of the game!
