Survivor Fans Podcast
Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

 

Many of us entered into this season with a bit of apprehension given the uncertainty of the cast but hungry for more Survivor. The verdict is in, and on the whole, you seemed happy with the first episode. Past seasons have set a high bar, and while this one did not exceed those standards, we found much to enjoy and were happy to have the episode not center on the built in drama. Now it is time to see how you did with your JABBIC predictions and weigh in on what you think of the cast now that we finally got to see them in action. Jeremy and Val remain majority favorites, but some of you think they might have overplayed their hand.

For each episode, we provide 3 podcasts: an episode recap, an interview with the castoff, and a chance for Survivor fans like yourself to sound off on what you saw and how you think the castaways are fairing in the game. Seventeen fans shared their thoughts on episode 1 and predictions for what we'll see next.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Alice, Becca, Jill, Bill, Carolyn, Nicola, Samantha, Drew, Florida Boy, Aaron, Sandi, Rashmi, BrandonA, Marla, Josh, Jeremiah and Paul.

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-1547. You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com.

This week we interviewed Nadiya Anderson. She left the game in episode 1 of Survivor San Juan Del Sur. She worked hard in camp, performed well in the challenge, and seemed to be generally liked by her tribe. Unfortunately, Nadiya was cast and voted out because of her appearance and performance on The Amazing Race. This is the number one risk of cross-over casting.

Listen to this interview to hear Nadiya's review of her tribemates, how she prepared, the scenes she wishes they had shown and more!

That turned out to be a bit of twist. It is rare when a tribe opts to keep an older member over a much younger one. We managed to avoid controversy this episode which was very nice. There was some excellent gameplay from Jeremy and Josh. We got a really solid immunity challenge too. It is nice to have a new cast and no Redemption Island. Looks like we are off to a good start!

How did your assessments of the new castaways change once you saw them in action? Were there any big revelations or realizations that you had misjudged someone? How much will being at Exile Island impact Val and Keith? Who is your guess for this season's most likely quitter? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 1.
Coyopa:Alec, Baylor, Dale, Jaclyn, JohnR, Josh, Val and Wes
Hunahpu:Drew, Jeremy, Jon, Julie, Keith, Kelley, Missy, Natalie and Reed

We are only a few days out now from the first episode of Survivor San Juan Del Sur, Blood vs. Water. It can be challenging to recognize the new castaways at the beginning of the season, but we've got an answer for that to enhance your Survivor viewing experience. It's called the JABBIC, "Judge A Book By Its Cover", shows. We get started before the first episode airs and record our early thoughts on this new group of castaways. Through this process, we identify a few of them we think will stand out from the beginning, and it greatly improves the odds of recognizing your early favorites.

This is Part 2 of our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show. Thirteen fans, like you, recorded their perspective on the new cast including their choice of favorites, who's most likely to get voted out first, make the merge, have a shot at the final tribal council as well as who has what it takes to win it all.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great JABBIC show. This week we heard from: Samantha, Rashmi, Ronda, Jill, Aaron, Nicola, DrewG, BrandonB, BrandonA, Josh, Jeremiah, Jody and Paul. Jeremiah made good on his JSFL challenge debt! Make sure to check out his rendition of Katy Perry's Roar, complete with Llamas.

JSFL registration is open! If you would like to join in the fun, click on this link: JSFL Registration and get your picks in before the first episode airs. You'll have to decide who you think will win it all, who will be voted out from the first tribal council, and four castaways that will be safe from the tribal council vote. Reminder: you have to listen to the podcast to hear the Listener Reward Bonus questions.

Today we interviewed Tony Vlachos, winner of Survivor Cagayan. He played the game so hard from day one that many of us were convinced that he was going to burn out before the merge. Instead, he seemed to get stronger as the game progressed, inventing his own rules for how to play, improvising on a level that we have never seen before. Tony will be remembered as one of Survivor's great strategists that was rewarded by a jury that was able to overlook their own bitterness and truly respected his mastery and dominance of the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about the early injury that threatened to take him out the game, details on how he destroyed everyone in that mud challenge, the story behind the creation of the spy shack, how he became infected with parasites and much more!

Today we interviewed Woo Hwang. He finished Survivor Cagayan in second place. You could tell he thoroughly appreciated being able to play Survivor. Not even a typhoon could dampen his spirits. His positive attitude set him apart from the other castaways. Unfortunately for him, his strategy to fly under the radar did not sit well with a jury that valued gameplay. In the history of Survivor, he will likely be remembered as another guy who mistakenly chose principles over an easy win.

Listen to this interview to hear how he and Tony stayed powered up throughout the game, how he convinced Tony that Trish had to go, the one thing that stands out most about his experience and more!

Today we interviewed Kass McQuillen. She finished Survivor Cagayan in third place. She too overcame an extremely rocky start as a member of a completely dysfunctional tribe to later become the most reviled castaway of the season. She will be remembered for her unconventional strategies, instigating arguments and for the most impressive, come from behind, final four Immunity challenge win in Survivor history. We likely have not seen the last of "Kaos Kass".

Listen to this interview to hear her story of how she made it on to the show, how the events on day three set the tone for her approach to the game, why winning the final four challenge during the family visit was so significant for her and more!

Today we interviewed Spencer Bledsoe. He finished the game in fourth place in Survivor Cagayan. Spencer survived being in the worst tribe in Survivor history and in spite of that made it to the final four. It was like the Survivor gods were playing a giant game of keep away with Spencer the whole time he was there. In spite of that, he lived a fans dream of lasting to final four and taking down three Individual Immunity idols. He let his temper get away from him a few times, but on the whole he played a great game and we really appreciated his depth of knowledge and respect for the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about what ended up frustrating him the most out there, more details on the impact of his Final Tribal speech, the surprising scene that didn't make it on the show and more!
