Joe Dowdle joined an unfortunate group of Survivor
outcasts last night as he left the game with a leg injury. To spend 20 days out in the elements, compete like hell, and sacrifice your body, only to be forced out by medics because of a random leg injury cannot feel good. Joe clearly did not want to leave the newly merged Forza tribe last night, but was given no choice by the Survivor: Tocantins doctor
. We had the great pleasure of speaking with Joe earlier today, and we discussed his time on Survivor, his leg injury, and what really went down at Jalapao.
Below you will find the full mp3 audio of the interview.
Topics of Discussion:
Joe is fully healed now. His leg was worked on by a number by some very good Brazilian doctors and he's fully healed. For the most part, Joe is pleased with how the season has been edited so far. He was glad they left some things out (some stories Joe told around camp), and he seemed to feel that he got a pretty fair shake. He didn't believe, going into the merge, that he was the odd man out or anything. He thought he had a very good chance at moving on, so it's not like, while the injury was being looked at, he thought that he would was going to get voted out anyway. For the future, Survivor made Joe realize that he should pursue what he loves. So, Joe has decided to record and write and perform his own music. You can find it on his MySpace.
