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

 

Wow, this batch of castaways continues to surprise us. The Hunahpu tribe appears to have adopted a "live only for today" attitude with no eye towards the future at all. We occasionally see tribes that mismanage their resources, but the original incarnation of this tribe has to be one of the worst offenders in the history of the game. The swap could not have come at a better time for Jon, Missy and Keith.

Do you think New Coyopa will win any of the challenges? Who do you think will end up in control of each respective tribe after this swap? What's the most unlikely alliance you can imagine taking control of the game at this point? Who do you think will be the quitter now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 5.
New Coyopa:Baylor, Dale, Jaclyn, Jon, Keith and Missy
New Hunahpu:Alec, Jeremy, Josh, Julie, Natalie, Reed and Wes

Survivor has a history of casting people that believe beyond a shadow of a doubt in the story they have crafted for themselves. Coach and Secret Agent Underpants are two great examples of this castaway archetype. To have someone so in love with their own delusion, which includes just the right amount of intermittent reinforcement to keep it going, is bound to result in drama. They succeeded in casting another one this season, but thankfully he was an early boot and we will not have to listen to him all the way through final tribal council.

With the recent fragmentation of male alliances, do you think we might see a female emerge as a more likely winner now? Is there a circumstance where you might ever choose to single handedly throw a challenge? How would you rate Keith's chances to making it to the end now that he has an HII? Who do you think will be the quitter now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 4.
Coyopa:Alec, Baylor, Dale, Jaclyn, Josh and Wes
Hunahpu:Jeremy, Jon, Julie, Keith, Kelley, Missy, Natalie and Reed

One of the most embarrassing scenarios any castaway can imagine is to get blindsided while holding an immunity idol. It can be a tricky situation to make that judgement call. We have seen some amazingly bold displays in recent seasons where people have held them and got away with it. What do you think about how Rocker's story played out in the game? Have your perceptions changed from before the season began?

Will Coyopa be able to turn it around and get an immunity win now? Is Josh in control of the alliance? Where do you think the story is headed with Drew? Who do you think will be the quitter now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 3.
Coyopa:Alec, Baylor, Dale, Jaclyn, Josh and Wes
Hunahpu:Drew, Jeremy, Jon, Julie, Keith, Kelley, Missy, Natalie and Reed

The "goat herding" started very early this season. By the second episode, two of the seasoned fans of the game are jockeying to control the designated goat, a player they both believe has little to no chance of winning. What they did not account for is this goat actually is playing and has managed to gain a strategic, upper hand for now. We appear to be off to a really good start. This level of early strategic play is a good omen.

Who is your favorite castaway after episode 2? Who is your guess for this season's most likely quitter? Is Coyopa headed for a Pagonging? Where do Baylor and Jaclyn stand in their tribe now? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 2.
Coyopa:Alec, Baylor, Dale, Jaclyn, JohnR, Josh and Wes
Hunahpu:Drew, Jeremy, Jon, Julie, Keith, Kelley, Missy, Natalie and Reed

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

A great season deserves a great finale, and that is exactly what we got! It remained unpredictable to the end. The majority of this cast was superb. We can not think of a season that had so many castaways that came to play to win. It never seemed predictable either. We were blindsided right along with most of the Survivors at each Tribal Council. The season ended with two great challenges that included one of the best come from behind victories in Survivor history. Many on the jury were bitter and opted to take revenge or grand stand at the final Tribal Council, but in the end all but one of them opted to reward dominant game play over adherence to personal principles.

Were you happy with the result? Do you recall anyone on a jury giving as passionate a speech as Spencer offered in support of Tony? How would you score the jury? Who nailed it and who disappointed? Where does this reason rank for you against the other 27? Any thoughts or predictions on season 29, Blood vs. Water 2?

JSFL Update: Congratulations to David from Brooklyn, winner of this season's JSFL!
Note:Jeremiah, your side challenge debt will be decided by BrandonB.

Here we are at episode 12, with only one episode to go, and we are still getting blindsides! This has been one of the most consistent seasons we have had in a long time. It may have taken 36 days, but it seems like Woo finally woke up and decided to play the game instead of settling for being Tony's little buddy. Tony has taken a big gamble. Rather than demonstrate his loyalty to Trish, he has opted to use the TPI for his ultimate bluff. Do you think it will pay off to secure his spot at a final 3? It looks like Tony and Spencer may trade roles with Tony now in the minority, underdog role. Do you think Kass and Woo will want to go to the final 3 with Spencer?

What did you think about Tony's choice to bluff with the TPI? Was there a better option available? How significant was Trish to Tony's end game plan? Will she be a great advocate or his worst nightmare at the Ponderosa? Does Kass or Woo still have a chance to win? What will be the most surprising ending for you? Who is your pick to win it all?

Here are our final four.
Solarrion:Kass, Spencer, Tony and Woo

A significant portion of Kass' chaos exists completely in her head. She went a bit off the deep end this week, imagining that Tony was trash talking about her to the guys. She is so sure of her own convictions that she does not bother to validate them with anyone else. The smart ones like Spencer and Tasha just step back and watch the drama unfold. Kass is convinced Tony is unlikable by a jury and therefore the great goat, but continues to overlook the fact that she may be perceived the same way. It has been really amazing to watch two of the original Luzon members, underdogs from the start, continue to dominate individual immunity challenges.

Who stands the best chance of beating Tony now? Is Kass better off making friends or making everyone paranoid? Does Trish have enough accomplishments in the game to win? Can you see any way that Woo could pull out a win? Who is your most and least likely final three at this point? If Spencer wins immunity again, who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.
Solarrion:Kass, Spencer, Tony, Trish and Woo

There is a backlash building. It is due to the overload of Tony we are getting in each episode now. The lack of suspense about his future in the game combined with how he is managing his new found power has polarized Survivor fans. The biggest question he faces now is, how will the jury react to him if he makes it to the end? Predictions on who is going next were split between Kass, Tasha, Spencer and Woo.

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. Ten fans made the extra effort to share their thoughts on episode 10 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: Jody, Nicola, Jeremiah, Robert, Aaron, Rashmi, Drew, Josh, Ronda and Paul.

The "Previously on Survivor" segment is usually a quick recap of past events, but every once in a while, they sneak in some new content. This was one of those weeks as we got to see more of a heated exchange between Jefra and Tony that occurred after LJ was voted out. This did not bode well for Jefra's future. This episode included the classic Survivor auction. These sometimes offer insights into how people are playing the game. Some castaways give in to temptation and choose the path of least resistance which is to buy food. The ones that are determined to win, save their money in hopes of buying an advantage in the game. For the first time in Survivor history, two people tied the bid for the "advantage" and drew rocks to see who would take it. That advantage really payed off, and resulted in the creation of one of the most powerful players in the game's history.

Who do you think has played the best social game so far? Who still stands a chance of beating Tony? Is bidding on food ever your best choice at the auction? Who is your most and least likely final three at this point ? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Solarrion:Kass, Spencer, Tasha, Tony, Trish and Woo
