The edit continues to highlight Wardog’s lack of challenge prowess as the Survivor: Edge of Extinction episode 11 preview shows his stumbles.

This preview for Survivor: Edge of Extinction episode 11 will show the early parts of the Reward Challenge that will appear this week.

With just eight players left in the game, anything can happen and anyone can win. This is actually when winning rewards becomes that much more crucial, as the game is so shaken up that new alliances need to be formed. The stated goal of the Survivor: Edge of Extinction season for the newbies was to get rid of the returnees, and get rid of them they accomplished.

What now? It seems like Wardog is the pilot of his own fate, but you wouldn’t know it from his challenge performance. The Survivor: Edge of Extinction episode 11 preview video for “Fasten Your Seatbelts” shows just how awkward he is taking the lead in a group-based challenge, trying his best to keep up with the oldest male teacher as a former soldier of the military.

Lauren and Wardog are doing the swimming portion of this reward challenge for the blue team, with Julie and Rick presumably doing a ring toss portion unseen in the video. Ron and Aurora are the swimmers for the yellow team as Victoria and Gavin await their turn.

The tension of the faceoff as Jeff Probst readies the survivors fades as Wardog slips out the gate, then proceeds to swim adrift of his intended destination. Thankfully for the blue team, he is quick to recover as he begins the “swim underneath this weird platform” section of the challenge. He then picks up the pace over Ron when untying the first ring and swimming to his platform.

There are a lot of Wardog comparisons to Tony, including our own edgic piece last week. Tony only won one individual challenge, and it was for the pizza reward that he so carelessly scarfed down to Trish’s disgust. The more I see Wardog stumble in challenges but stay determined and strategic at camp, it’s hard not to see the same kind of edit permeate five years and ten Survivor seasons later.
