"There's a lot of backstabbing; it's sort of backstabbing through utter insecurity and fear," the Traitors host exclusively told Distractify. "Every night they have to turn on each other because there's a banishment every night at the roundtable. And that was my favorite part because you just saw people crumble. My favorite part is when people say, 'I can't believe you lied to me.' It's called The Traitors, b--ch. Sorry."

"I'm more of an observer, I would say," Arie told us. ".... [Just] kind of not trying to make waves, trying to be in the background a little bit. I think that is the best strategy that I tried to employ."

Age: 52

"It was not a benefit coming into the game with a reality TV background; people are automatically suspicious of you, especially when you play the type of games that we play," Cirie noted, adding, "I'm an under the right radar player. So I tried to make myself invisible. ... So they don't remember or think about my gameplay on Survivor."

"[I] immediately had to come in and try to like, downplay previous experience," Cody explained. "You want to be able to last a little bit longer to build relationships, and I feel like players like us [on Big Brother and Survivor] could be immediately targeted right away, just on the basis of [being] a gamer."

"Round tables were so awkward at first. I think people were like, a little bit scared to speak. It's very intimidating. But man, did they get heated. It's an experience like I've never had, and I am usually pretty proud to say, you know, I'll confront people," Kate said. "But this was next level."

"I probably wish I was a little more well-versed in these competition shows," Kyle told us, explaining what he would've changed about his game. "I didn't understand that 90 percent of what makes those shows successful and how you win is social strategy."

"It's really about the strategy and the social experiment and just trying to like, you know, play the game," he added.

Age: 38

"I knew Cody from Big Brother and I had like, gone out with him and hung out with him before, and then I had just spent, you know, 10 days in the jungle with Stephenie and Cirie. So coming into this castle, seeing Stephenie and Cirie and seeing Cody, you think automatically I have this alliance, right?" Rachel noted. "I should be able to have an alliance. So I think it messes with you because you forget like you're playing a game. You don't know what is going through their heads."

"My strategy was keeping my mind off of Shahs being canceled and not like, being depressed and like, 'who am I if I'm not a Shah?' Well, I'm a traitor, I guess," Reza said. "It was just a really great way for me to not be in the loop of my show."
