The Traitors winner Trishelle Cannatella talks double standards between men and women on reality TV with Stephenie LaGrossa

All season long, Survivor legend and The Traitors season 1 contestant Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick and Jack Vita have been covering the second season of Peacock's hit reality competition show The Traitors, providing in-depth analysis and recaps on the Jack Vita Show after every single episode. This week, Steph and Jack are pleased to be joined by one of the season's winners, Trishelle Cannatella!

Trishelle played a calculated and aggressive game throughout her time on The Traitors, never shying away from calling out the contestants that she perceived as traitors at the roundtable. She correctly voted to banish Dan and Phaedra from the game. She figured out that Parvati was a traitor, but convinced her alliance to attempt to work with Parvati, in hopes of taking control of the numbers. Her plan was unsuccessful, but Peter, John and Kevin were all targeted by the Bravo alliance before she was.

Trishelle teamed up with longtime frenemy Chris "CT" Tamburello. The pair first met in the year 2002, on MTV's The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet. The Real World and Challenge alumni have a bit of a rocky past, so it came as a bit of a surprise to both of them that they ended up working so closely together on The Traitors and ultimately winning, splitting the $208,000 prize!

Stephenie and Jack ask Trishelle about her strategy, her gameplay and her time in Scotland! Trishelle shows off the notes she took in her journal during her time in the castle and provides great detail and insights to her strategy. She also gives us a peak behind the curtain and discusses some things that weren't shown on camera. Trishelle provides clarity to her decision to banish again and why she voted CT and pivoted to MJ. Trishelle has been catching some heat from the fans. Why is that, and what are her thoughts on the matter? Join us as we take a deep dive into Trishelle's path to victory on The Traitors!

Trishelle made her reality television debut in the year 2002, appearing as a cast member on the 12th season of MTV's The Real World, The Real World: Las Vegas. Trishelle competed on four seasons of MTV's The Challenge. After competing on The Challenge: Rivals II in 2013, Trishelle took an eight-year break from reality television, until coming out of retirement to appear on the first season of The Challenge: All-Stars. 23 years into her reality television career, she is finally a champion.
