Ozzy Lusth (Cook Islands 1, Micronesia, South Pacific): It begins on day one, the building of the bridges and finding the common bonds with each and every person and developing those bonds. Group dynamics, you can hypothesize about it and extrapolate different themes and theories, but you’re never going to know until an actual group comes together, when you have that first tribe and you can look and see who I’ve got and I’ll make my game plan from there. I’m really hoping that some time away from the game has allowed Ozzy the insight to come out here and say I’m worthy of playing this game.
While he waits for the game to begin, Ozzy has been keeping a close eye on the field. If you don’t believe it, you can’t convince a jury.

Josh Wigler (Survivor press, Parade): Were you surprised to get the call to come back for a fourth time? But Boston Rob has played four times and Cirie has now played four times. I can’t wait to get out and play and fish and get to know people and go through this game.
Ozzy Lusth (Cook Islands 1, Micronesia, South Pacific): Right when we finished, a bunch of local guys came out and tattooed a bunch of the cast members. As the old saying goes, you can take the man’s foot off of the tree, but you can’t take the tree off of his foot. Whatever, it doesn’t even apply to Ozzy, as he stands on the edge of his fourth time climbing the proverbial (and likely literal) Survivor tree. Ozzy Lusth (Cook Islands 1, Micronesia, South Pacific): I was really surprised to get the call to come back for a fourth time. There are a few other players who have played a bunch. I’m so lucky to be able to come back and play this game again. Ozzy Lusth (Cook Islands 1, Micronesia, South Pacific): The reason why I’m a Game Changer is I’m the best fisherman Survivor has ever seen.
That’s why I want to take the strongest people to the end. These people have egos, and their egos are what I need to rely on for them to think they can beat me. I wonder if he’s not going to want to trust the Sophie in the room, if he’s going to want to redeem himself in that respect. I want somebody who is a team player working with me. Sierra Dawn Thomas (Worlds Apart): We were on together and shared a little green room, and I got to meet him for the first time there. I feel like he will be insanely deceitful and very manipulative and just a sneaky snake. Cirie Fields (Panama, Micronesia, Heroes vs Villains): I just fear that he may hold something against me [from voting him out in Micronesia]. From a game perspective, I’m sure he’ll turn it on at some point. You’re not getting rid of the Dolphin Boy immediately. I think Ozzy is one of those people where America would embrace him as a winner and it would be long overdue.
