Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

 

It's time to wrap up our thoughts on Kaoh Rong. The season on the whole got great reviews, but the finale left a lot of folks confused or disappointed. They were just sure that Aubry was going to win based on her story arc and the lack of detail to support Michele's comeback win. If you believe in a "winner's edit", this was a tough one to swallow, because Michele's positivity and superb social game were hard to convey in contrast to all the big personalities, dramatic events, and that scene stealer Mark the Chicken!

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Pete, Meredith, Samantha, Pam, Jill, JK, Joe, Nicola, Carolyn, JohnnyMac, Thomas, Marla-n-Sarah, Frank, Drew, LC, Parker, BrandonA, MikeK, Kenny, Ed, Rashmi, James, Ronda, Shannon, Jen, PaulS, Michael, JD, Jeremiah, Josh, and Paul.

We'll be back in September with our JABBIC show for season 33, Survivor: Millennials Vs. Gen X.

This week we interviewed Michele Fitzgerald, the winner of Survivor Kaoh Rong. It was easy to overlook Michele in the beginning as just another pretty face. The theme of the season and her tribe reinforced it. She was a key member of a dominant tribe and that kept her out of the spotlight of tribal council for the first 21 days, but she was already working her "win from the middle" strategy even before the merge. From there, it was a long, patient, strategic climb to the end where she built on her physical and mental competitiveness along with her all inclusive social game to turn the eventual tide in her favor.

Listen to this interview to hear how she fought to get on the show, how she felt about her edit, her thoughtful comparison of the her and Aubry's social game and lots more!

This week we interviewed Tai Trang and Aubry Bracco. Tai came in third and Aubry took second place in the finale of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Tai became a fan favorite right out the gate and his connection to all things living brought us another fan favorite in Mark the Chicken, a true life Survivor of this season. Tai's dance on the dark side left some of us conflicted with the hero image we had of him. Aubry's start was the complete opposite which framed her as weak and succumbing to the elements. She slowly started to win us over when she bounced back and began an amazing comeback arc only to get knocked down again and again, but finessed her way to the end with an impressive strategic and social game.

Listen to this interview to hear how they got on the show, how Tai injured himself in training before the game began, the foundation to Aubry's amazing social game and lots more!

Probst described it as the toughest season in Survivor history, and we're happy to declare it one of the most enjoyable too. We started with low expectations. How could anything compare to the amazing gameplay in Second Chances, but this one shocked, surprised and delighted us all the way through. The finale delivered with solid challenges and a twist that actually seemed to work. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

What did you think of the final challenges? What did you think about the new twist to vote out a jury member? How did the final three do with answering the jury's questions? Who in the jury asked the best and worst questions? What did you think of the reunion show? Where does this season rank? How does it compare to the first Brains vs. Beauty vs. Brawn? What are your thoughts on season 33? Are you ready for Millennials vs. Gen X?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-1547 and now toll free at 844-643-8737. 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. Listener Feedback is due by Saturday Noon PST. Please keep it to 3 minutes or less.

A medical evacuation in episode 13 is always going to throw a wrench into things, and everyone was sad to see someone's game end that way. In spite of all the hardship this season, overall sentiment remains positive, and folks are looking forward to a exciting, strong finale where any of the remaining castaways could win!

This week we interviewed Joe Del Campo. He left the game in episode 13 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. So many of us thought Joe would be among the first to go, but he proved us wrong again and again and again. He proved so strong and resilient that we were shocked and saddened to see him leave for medical reasons. He raised the bar for what we should expect from castaways in their 70s.

Listen to this interview to hear why he chose to apply, what all happened after he was pulled from the game, how his Survivor experience has continued to enhance his life and lots more!

This season has been exceptionally brutal. It's heartbreaking to see someone go out at this stage of the game, and those circumstances make it all the more difficult to process. It's finally here. We're down to the final four now and looking forward to an amazing, two hour Finale. Who do you most want to hear from at the Reunion show?

Can Aubry recover yet again from this setback? Who's a threat to win and who do you think has the least chance with this jury? Will Tai survive or will it be an all female finale? How do you think this jury will handle the final tribal council? What's your final four order?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 13.
Dara: Aubry, Cydney, Michele, Tai

Most of us were happy to see Jason join the jury, but this episode left us with some mysteries. Why didn't they take out Michele when Aubry agreed with Tai that she was a bigger threat and they had all the votes they needed without Cydney's help? Or, why didn't Aubry and Joe take out Tai when he told them he wasn't going to play the HII? It's still anyone's game as we head into episode 13. The only one we're all pretty sure will make it to day 39 is Mark-the-Chicken!

This week we interviewed Kyle Jason. He left the game in episode 12 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Jason was a brash, polarizing figure. We're happy that as a fan of the game, he managed to get a full experience that he now treasures even though many of us didn't appreciate how he chose to play the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about the extensive injuries he hid to avoid being pulled, what was required to fix him up, who has his Hidden Immunity Idol and lots more!

Once again we see a castaway in a position of power squander it away and alienate their allies because they lacked the discipline to manage it wisely and not lord it over the others. Thanks to Survivor's ability to shine a light on all aspects of human nature, it often is able to deliver a life lesson over the course of a season and sometimes in a single episode. Be careful what you choose to rail against lest you become the thing you despise.

How do you think this episode's events impacted Aubry's game? Who's a better goat now, Joe or Tai? Who improved their final tribal story the most this week? How do you feel about an all female final tribal? Which would be better this season, a final two or three? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
Dara: Aubry, Joe, Cydney, Michele, Tai
