When racist, homophobic John Rocker was eliminated on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” this week, many viewers at home celebrated the early demise of the controversial MLB player. But was his role as this season’s villain blown entirely out of proportion?
During our latest “Survivor” slugfest, Gold Derby’s Editors discuss whether Rocker was treated unfairly by his tribemates and by the media and we wonder if Baylor Wilson, one of this season’s favorites, is now in danger of going home. (Watch the entire slugfest below.)
Joining me in our slugfest recap of “Survivor” Episode #29.03 are Senior Editors Rob Licuria and Matt Noble as we make our picks for who we think will win Season 29 and who’ll be voted out next.
We also discuss our favorite and least favorite moments from “Actions vs. Accusations,” including Keith Nale and Josh Canfield‘s hilarious trip to Exile Island, Hunahpu’s three-for-three winning streak with Immunity challenges and Jeremy Collins‘ anger at Rocker after finding out his wife Val Collins was eliminated the previous week.
