Zimmerman jury consultant: I had juror B37 as a prosecution strike

With a full acquittal, George Zimmerman's defense team certainly had the jury they wanted at the end of the day.

Monday night, juror B37 spoke out for the first time and told Anderson Cooper she couldn't help but find Zimmerman's story believable.

Juror B37: "I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should've done. I think his heart was in the right place, it just went terribly wrong."

But what did the rest of the jury think and what was the defense team's strategy while picking the jury?

Outfront tonight: Robert Hirschhorn is the jury consultant for Zimmerman's defense.
