Rick Devens - Bio
  • S38 logo Edge of Extinction bio

    Official CBS Edge of Extinction bio excerpts (February 1, 2019):

     

    "Pet peeves: Not taking ownership of actions, over explainers, waiting in line, and people not using coasters.

     

    What is your personal claim to fame?  My kids, BUT one time there was a cat stuck high (very high) up in a tree for days and may have died but I did a news story and contacted folks and got him rescued, so I have that going for me.

     

    Who or what is your inspiration in life? My father. He's totally focused and dedicated. A West Point grad and Airborne Army Ranger.  He can do anything. Also, shout outs to Stephen Colbert and Stephen King who are brilliant and funny.

     

    If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? 

    The Stand by Stephen King. A great book and long so it'll entertain me for a while.

    A LEGO figure. My son always asks me to keep his LEGO men safe.

    A picture of my family, dogs, and cats included.

     

    Which Survivor contestant are you the most like?  Cochran. He's a strategist. He was also a genuinely nice guy but he was there to PLAY!

     

    Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor I'm an Eagle Scout and have all the basic survival/first aid skills. I'm a hard worker and good at alleviating tension."
