Kelley Wentworth (‘Survivor’ 38) exit interview: ‘I’m impressed by the game move,’ but now ‘I’m that dumb player’

“I’m impressed by the game move of the other players,” Kelley Wentworth admitted after being voted out of the 10th episode of “Survivor: Edge of Extinction” by one of her closest allies. “I’m pissed at myself because I had an idol in my pocket. I can’t believe I’m that person. So now I’m that dumb ‘Survivor’ player,” she harrumphed after taking the torch and heading off to Extinction Island. Kelley then shook up the game by telling the Edge of Extinction castaways that Lauren O’Connell has the other immunity idol — might that information come back to haunt Lauren?

Kelley’s entire game was destroyed by one person and one person only: Dan “Wardog” DaSilva. Despite being in a tight three-person alliance with Kelley and Lauren since day one, Wardog knew he’d have no chance of beating her in the end. He started stealthily approaching people on the outs and then created a new five-person voting block that included himself, Victoria Baamonde, Aurora McCreary, Rick Devens and Ron Clark to go after the show’s last returning player.

Earlier in the episode Kelley sensed something was wrong because there was no scrambling going on at camp. “I’ve always had to be the scrappy underdog,” she said in a confessional. “Now that I’m in a majority alliance it is nice because there is just this kind of calm. But all it takes is one person to be like, ‘It’s time to get out Wentworth,’ and they could try and make a move against me. I’m just so glad I have the safety of a hidden immunity idol right now.” Ouch!

Of course, Kelley still has a chance of returning to the game if she wins the Edge of Extinction challenge in the coming weeks. She’ll be facing off against fellow competitors Reem Daly, Chris Underwood, Aubry Bracco, Joe Anglim, Eric Hafemann, Julia Carter and David Wright, who was voted out first during Wednesday’s double tribal council episode.

Kelley previously was the fifth person voted out of “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” when she played against her father, Dale Wentworth. She then returned for “Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance” where she made it all the way to fourth place.
