“I was very bummed,” Gold Derby’s Marcus James Dixon tells Susan Wloszczyna about Rick Devens being voted out in the fourth episode of “Survivor: Edge of Extinction.” He continues, “I liked this guy a lot and I think he could have won this whole thing — he’s so likeable.” Susan puts the blame solely on Dan “Wardog” DaSilva, this week’s swing vote who decided to side with Kelley Wentworth and Lauren O’Connell, thereby betraying Rick and David Wright. Watch our “Survivor” video recap above for Season 38, Episode 4.
“It was up to Wardog, who calls himself Wardog,” Susan notes. “That’s disturbing, but leave that aside for a minute. [Lauren] was sick, but it wasn’t like she was fainting and not being able to move or anything. She could get better. She said she played soccer, so she has some athleticism.”
As for all of the chicken drama, Susan says that “Wendy Diaz has a good luck charm somewhere,” referring to the fact that she’s still in the game despite stealing the flint last week and letting the chickens loose this week. Susan notes, “They kind of take her as this oddball that’s there, and she’s basically harmless. She just had this idea she needed to let the chickens escape, except they don’t really want to, so that was good for her.”
Marcus admits that he does “worry about Wendy,” saying, “I think she would have gone home tonight if her tribe had lost.” He later confesses that he’s rooting for her “to win” among all of the newbies, while David is his pick among the four returnees. Susan states that she’s still banking on Aubry Bracco to win the million dollar check: “I picked her way long ago.”
Also in this week’s video recap, Susan and Marcus discuss Extinction Island inhabitants Reem Daly, Keith Sowell and Chris Underwood, they talk about Julia Carter‘s strange lack of screen time, and they complain about the eye-rolling lovefest at tribal council.
