“We all wear a mask,” Unfaithful star Amanda Lovett has revealed, detailing how she managed to deceive longtime believers.

Tuesday night’s sensational episode saw Amanda dramatically betrayed by fellow traitor Wilfred Webster, who sowed doubts among the faithful before the Round Table, before finally sealing her fate with his vote.

She said: We all wear a mask… We all have bad days.

The TV personality went on to say that she has five children and five grandchildren and is “just a grandmother,” and revealed her day-to-day role as a caring mother-to-be on the show, as believers put their faith in her as a mother figure.

Amanda also told how as the days went by and the group got smaller, it became harder to kill them because by then they had formed close bonds.

“The smaller the group, the closer your relationships will be,” she explained.

Being a traitor, you play believer all day. They really believe in you, they connect with you, and they don’t want you to be that person who betrays and kills them.

At the start of the show, Amanda along with Wilf and Alyssa Chan were chosen as the traitors, as the group secretly plotted to “kill” their fellow contestants.

Speaking about how the mission began, Amanda said: “In the beginning it was much easier because we didn’t form relationships or alliances. It was about bringing out the strongest characters.

It was because we had to control the game, we didn’t have a say in them going into the game, it’s like a herd mentality.

“With the herd mentality, everyone was so scared because they wanted to stay in the game that they went and followed everyone else.”

The show sees the contestants become involved before a small number of guys are secretly chosen by Claudia to be the traitors. The rest of the players are known as “The Faithful” and none of The Faithful knows who the traitors are.

Players are then eliminated when the Traitors meet in secret and decide to “kill” one of the Faithful. The next morning, when the group meets for breakfast, the “killed” player does not appear.

Later in the day, all players have to meet at the “Round Table” and “banish” the player they suspect is a traitor.

Then the person of his choice reveals whether he is a traitor or a believer before being eliminated from the show.

At the end of the game, a few remaining players share the prize pool if they are all loyal, but if there is still a traitor among them, the traitor takes all the prize money.
