“You take away every element of control and you’re constantly faced with the unknown, it really affects you mentally,” she said. “That was the hardest thing for me.”
Speaking further about other challenges on the show, the 59-year-old added: “You literally look at the sun and try to figure out what time it is.
“You’ve lost all sense of time, you’re not sleeping. It’s very confusing and I don’t think you realize it by watching the show. It’s a really hard hit.”
However, she said she “absolutely loved” the “camp life.”
Cleaver concluded, “The only thing the world will see about me is that I don’t have a filter. You completely forget the cameras are there.”
