It's time again to share our final impressions and thoughts on season 35, Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. The finale got mixed reviews. From one perspective, Ben, a fan favorite and hard worker was rewarded. The other camp feels that Chrissy was robbed by a fickle twist. The overall season got a positive review. All in all though, we once again had fun together and found lots to enjoy and discuss each week. We will be on hiatus until late February when we return for the season 36 JABBIC episodes.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Pete, Johnny, Shea, Eliza, KittyCat, Rashmi, Mike, Sandi, Sophie, JK, Judy, Myra, Marla-n-Sarah, Drew, Ed, Kenny, Chris, Josh, Parker, Ronda, Jack, John, Jody, James, Jeremiah, Jen, Shannon, and Paul.

This week we interviewed Ben Driebergen, winner of Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers! Ben found his footing early and started the game strong. The shuffle put him in jeopardy, but he quickly recovered, and gained the upper hand again after the merge. When his core alliance ambushed him, he was able to scramble, improvise, and adapt, saving himself over and over and over. He will be remembered in Survivor history for his amazing HII play.

Listen to this interview to hear the amazing story behind the help the winner received from coworkers to be able to play, their confidence level before the final vote was read, their proudest moves in the game and lots more!

This week we interviewed Chrissy Hofbeck. She made it to the finale and ended up in second place in Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. Chrissy struggled at the beginning but thanks to Ryan, she got her footing back and started working to improve her position. She will be remembered for her outstanding Immunity Challenge performances and tying the all time female record.

This week we interviewed Ryan Ulrich. He made it to the finale and ended up in third place in Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. Ryan had a strong start, becoming an early front runner to win. He faded into the background after the merge and appeared to take a backseat to the other players that pushed the limits of the game. Fortunately for him, he possessed an excellent social game that kept him in the hunt and his ineffectiveness at challenges made him an easy choice for final three.

Listen to this interview to hear about the injury that plagued them through most of the game, how watching the show each week as the game played out affected them during the season, who they would have voted for if there had been a tie at final three and lots more!

We have now been blessed with seventeen years and thirty five seasons of this wonderful show, and this one was a delight from start to finish. This season contained awesome lessons on the power of secrets, hard work, and perseverance. We delighted in all the triumphs and tribulations and were happy that it kept us guessing all the way to the end when the final votes were read.

What did you think of the final challenges? What did you think about the new Secret Advantage twist at the final four Tribal Council? Did the new format for final tribal questions work this time? How did the final three do with answering the jury's questions? Who in the jury impressed you and who disappointed you the most? How would you rate this reunion show? Where does this season rank for you? What are your thoughts on season 35? Are you excited for another all new cast in Ghost Island? How do you think the past idols will be used?

We have another tie! Congratulations to the JSFL Winners, Energy5 and RobD with 129 points.


The JSFL side challenger's scores are: Drew won with 121. Nina: 116, Rick: 95, Parker: 84, IronDave: 80, KittyCat: 76, Stacy: 75, Jody: 70, BrandonA: 64, Jeremiah: 63, ColdMike: 56, Jonathan: 53, and James and Shannon are this season's losers with 47. Drew will pick a song for James and Shannon to write a parody for based on this season's events and sing for us.

This week we interviewed Ashley Nolan. She left the game in week 12 of Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. Ashley admitted that she only really started playing the game on day twenty eight. She was fortunate to form strong alliances that helped her go deep, but once her primary bond was broken, she made a quick exit.

Listen to this interview to hear about the painful injury she struggled with through most of the game, who she thinks is nicer than we get to see, what Mike whispered to her at Tribal Council and lots more!

When is the right time to select your final three? We can probably all agree that day one is probably too soon given the odds against you making it to the end together at that point. What about day thirty four, while on one of the best rewards in the game with food and an overnight rest with only two other fellow castaways? Yep, that sounds about right. Do you think that alliance can withstand another Ben Bomb?

What are your most and least desired final three combinations? What odds do you give each remaining player to make it to the end? Is there a clear goat to take to the end this season? Who do you think will win it all?

Here is the merged tribe after week 12.
Solewa: Ben, Chrissy, Devon, Mike, and Ryan
