The recruiter probably already spoke with you on the screen call and didn’t think they wanted to move forward. Don’t blame them

Yeah, sometimes it’s not you. I’m interviewing someone for R1 tomorrow, but 2 internal folks want the role and are also doing final rounds tomorrow.

How likely do you think it’ll be that the external person gets it?

Personally, I would ignore the people on here who are making assumptions that you're no longer in consideration. I would either call or email the recruiter and ask if it's a error on their end. Idk why this is such a novel concept on here sometimes.
