A Sullivan native and past Millikin University student will be a contestant on the upcoming "Survivor" television show series. "Survivor Guatemala, The Mayan Empire," the 11th edition of the popular CBS reality program, finished filming last week.

McDevitt graduated from Sullivan High School in 2002. She participated in a weeklong dance workshop at Disney World in Orlando, Fla., in January 2002.

The news release from CBS about "Survivor" contestants lists the 21-year-old McDevitt's home city as Decatur and her profession as "magician's assistant/waitress." She was a cheerleader at Sullivan High School and at Millikin. She was a sophomore, according to the school's 2003-04 student directory, but was not listed in last year's directory.

The show debuts at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15. According to the news release, "The castaways will begin their adventure with a grueling 11-mile hike through the jungle."

Additionally, the program "takes place amid the ancient Mayan ruins and ceremonial sites (some as many as 2,000 years old) located in the northern area of Guatemala. Amid the excruciating triple-digit heat, crocodile infested waters, relentless mosquitoes and terrifying sounds of the howler monkeys -"

This edition of the game also will include 46-year-old Gary Hogeboom, former NFL quarterback with the Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts and Phoenix Cardinals from 1980 to 1989. His presence gives the show a quarterback and a cheerleader.

How Morgan Lost Her Magic - Second 'Survivor' Castoff

image880335x.jpg

(CBS) On "Survivor: Guatemala" the Yaxha tribe made its first trip to tribal council. And in the end, Morgan McDevitt, a former magician's assistant, disappeared from the tribe.

"For me, it was all about avoiding Tribal Council," McDevitt tells The Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen. "For me, it was all about preparing mentally and physically while we were at camp and getting ready for the challenges. I didn't feel the need to just like run around and just find something to do at camp. And then exhaust myself for the challenges."

Unfortunately, her tribe did not appreciate her strategy. She was just seen as the one having her hair braided seated by the lake. McDevitt, who had been a blonde on the reality show, surprised the anchors by appearing with brown hair.

"We were all getting our hair braided, and we all were drinking water," McDevitt says. "I think maybe in comparison to Lydia I was lazy. But I think I just had a completely different work ethic than everyone else."

Lydia Morales' head also was on the chopping block, but the 42-year-old fishmonger had not only done well at the challenges, she had figured a way to win her tribe's heart: their stomachs. The decision was unanimous, only McDevitt didn't see her "Survivor" death looming.

"I was doing really, really well in challenges," McDevitt say. "Our tribe was just so close to each other and we were so honest with each other about everything. I had promised Brianna that I wouldn't vote for her. I was very honest about that. Lydia knew I was voting for her. It just completely went over my head. Nobody told me 'You're being lazy and you need to step up and do this.'"

The one McDevitt says should have gotten the boot is Brianna Varela.

"I think that Brianna was really weak at challenges," she says. "I think that she might have been the weakest link as far as that goes. Lydia is a workhorse. I'm not going to deny her of that. I mean, she never, never stopped working. But I think that I was still stronger in challenges than her."

Even after the initial 11-mile race, one that did the men of Nakum in, McDevitt says she felt fine.

"I was never physically defeated," she says. "It was more like a 15-mile hike after we got lost. It was grueling. That's where I kind of got a chance to know myself physically. I do have a lot of endurance. I did pretty well on that hike."

Asked how her trade helped her in the game, McDevitt says, "I would say as a magician's assistant, I had to do a lot physical stuff." Unfortunately, she could do very little to win the immunity challenge. Nakum's tribe was able to count on Judd Sergeant's strength.

"There is nothing that a 102-pound girl can do compared to 200-plus. That competition was just sheer body mass," she says.

Survivor Magician Runs Out of Tricks

by Angel Cohn

Morgan McDevitt

On last Thursday's Survivor: Guatemala, Morgan McDevitt was unable to pull a rabbit out of a hat and save herself from a tribal trouncing. The Yaxhas thought that the 21-year-old magician's assistant was more than a tad bit lazy, and decided to keep workhorse Lydia around camp instead. Unfortunately for Morgan, her fellow castaways didn't give her a heads-up on the change of plan, so she was stunned by their betrayal before she disappeared from Guatemala for good.

TVGuide.com: Were you surprised you got voted out so early?

Morgan McDevitt: Oh, my gosh, I was shocked!

TVGuide.com: I saw the look on your face right after you gave that whole speech on unity; it didn't seem happy.

Morgan: I gave this whole speech about honesty and us telling each other what was going on, and that wasn't the case at all.

TVGuide.com: Do you have anything you plan to say to your teammates when you see them at the finale?

Morgan: No. I think that what they did was the nature of the beast. It was all within the game, and I definitely respect them for it. I think it was kind of silly to vote someone off that early for nonphysical reasons. I think they should have kept the tribe's best interest in mind when it came to challenges, and I don't think that was the smartest move to make. But we'll see what happens.

TVGuide.com: It seemed like they picked you because you weren't doing as much around camp.

Morgan: That was Gary's opinion. Brian just wanted to save Lydia, so Brian just heard Gary say that [i was lazy] and he latched onto it and went along with it. I don't think that was the overall consensus, though. I know that Rafe and Amy did not think that I was lazy.

TVGuide.com: So you were pulling your own weight?

Morgan: I definitely was, [but] Lydia was an absolute workhorse. In comparison to her, I did very little, but so did everybody else. The thing that you didn't see was that Brianna and Jamie were very sick around camp, and were doing little to nothing. I was just really shocked to see me, of all people, being accused of being lazy.

TVGuide.com: Speaking of workhorses, were you surprised to see Stephenie on your team?

Morgan: I was shocked. I had a feeling there were going to be two more people added; I just didn't know who it would be or anything like that. She was someone who I had followed and rooted for during [survivor:] Palau. She's a great competitor, and I felt really privileged at first to have her on my team. But as I find out, she wants to be the woman on the team; she doesn't have room for any other strong females, and that's what I was. To her, I was a threat.

TVGuide.com: Did you consider making an alliance with people to try to get her out?

Morgan: No, I didn't. I had a bad feeling about her
