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

 

Whew, that was another emotionally charged episode. What is it with this season and bullies? How did we end up with three men that think it is in any way OK to take out their anger on Shirin in these ways? It was hard to watch Will's ugly behavior. Putting that aside for a minute, Mike's worst fears came to fruition and he completely fumbled his attempt to thwart it. How did we end up in a scenario where Rodney is the biggest strategic threat in the game now?

Who would you most like to see gone? Do you think Mike stands a chance now that the odds are so clearly stacked against him? Do you think Dan will be able to use his advantage in a meaningful way? What did you think of the food stash twist? Were you surprised by who focused on the advantage at the auction? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Merica:Carolyn, Dan, Mike, Rodney, Shirin, Sierra, Tyler, and Will

You can look at the outcome of this episode and say it was predictable, but we certainly did not anticipate all the twists and turns that got packed into the end result that made it quite enjoyable. Jenn just achieved Dan and Rodney level goat status. We know that Rodney has a secret final four alliance and now we know that Mike has one too. It looks like they finally are going to go after each other in the next episode.

Who would you most like to see gone? How long do you think they will drag Jenn along? Who is going to win in the face off between Mike and Rodney? Do you think asking to be voted out is any different than quiting outright? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Merica:Carolyn, Dan, Jenn, Mike, Rodney, Shirin, Sierra, Tyler, and Will

Joe has turned out to be every bit the challenge beast that we suspected he might be back before this season began. They have plenty of reason to fear him. It just got immensely harder for him to stay around much longer though. The challenging part for Mike is that Joe gives him great cover while he is still in the game. The minute Joe is gone, everyone will likely start to focus on getting rid of Mike and he knows it. Fortunately for Mike, he just found the best insurance policy in the game. Do you think Rodney will have the patience to wait to get rid of Mike or will he break down and try to pull the trigger too early?

How long do you think Joe can keep winning? Has your perception of any of the remaining players changed significantly since the merge? Who would you most like to see gone? Who is most likely to break ranks with the controlling alliance? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Merica:Carolyn, Dan, Jenn, Joe, Mike, Rodney, Shirin, Sierra, Tyler, and Will

That was by far one of the best demonstrations we have seen of the power of the HII to change the outcome of Tribal Council. Unfortunately, it will not by itself be enough to swing the balance of power in favor of the new underdogs, but it definitely will force some folks to rethink their endgame plans. A dominant alliance emerged with this week's voting results.It will be interesting to see if they can hold it together to impose their will on the game. We have lots to discuss after the merge.

What did you think of the new tribe name? How about the new Individual Immunity necklace? Where you surprised that Will jumped ship so quickly? Do you think anyone from the old No Collar tribe will survive? Were you impressed or disappointed by anyone in the Immunity Challenge? Who do you think is most likely to find the remaining HII? Who is most likely to break ranks with the controlling alliance? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the new merged tribe after episode 7.
Merica:Carolyn, Dan, Hali, Jenn, Joe, Mike, Rodney, Shirin, Sierra, Tyler, and Will

What a treat! We got an extra episode this week with a lot of great action. Now that we know the castaways a little better, we saw the return of the classic reward challenge. Even with the extra time spent on the action of the extra challenges, we still got some great insights into the social aspects of the game too. One of this season's themes continues to be the lack of self awareness. Shirin, Max, Rodney, Lindsey, and Dan seem to find new ways to demonstrate this each week. Kelly, on the other hand, serves as a great contrast to this clueless crew. It was great to see her highlighted this week.

Did your perception of anyone change significantly after the shuffle? Who do you think is in control of each tribe? Will the red tribe get decimated in the upcoming challenges? Who is Sierra better off aligning with? Is there a solid five in control of the red tribe now? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 4 and 5.
Escameca/Blue:Dan, Joaquin, Joe, Mike, Rodney, Sierra, and Tyler
Nagarote/Red:Carolyn, Hali, Jenn, Kelly, Shirin, Will

It is a classic pattern. A castaway gets booted out of a tribe and that tribe's failure at the next challenge appears like it hinged on that choice. Imagine how the No Collar's would have faired if they had kept Vince instead of Nina. The other classic pattern we were treated to this episode is for the dominant tribe to start to self destruct, and the Blue Collars are working hard on that one too. How is it that all the guys are experts at annoying their tribemates? Mike keeps digging his hole, Dan finds new ways to insert his foot in his mouth, and Rodney appears ready to rage at his tribemates in every confrontation. Meanwhile, over at the White Collars, Shirin and Joaquin are making the next choice to be booted from that tribe super easy too. This episode took us through day 8 and it is clear that the elements are really starting to have an impact on this group.

Who would you have chosen: Nina or Will? What's the key to keeping harmony in the dominant tribe? Do you think the Blue Collars will throw a challenge just to get rid of Mike? Is a tribe swap imminent or would your rather see them preserve the tribes until the merge? Who do you think is in control of each tribe? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
Escameca/Blue Collar:Dan, Kelly, Lindsey, Mike, Rodney, Sierra
Nagarote/No Collar:Hali, Jenn, Joe, Will
Masaya/White Collar:Carolyn, Joaquin, Max, Shirin, Tyler

Another episode, another awesome blindside! Yes, season 30 is off to a good start. Max and Shirin continued their tribute to past Survivors. Last week it was Tarzan, this week it was Hatch. Dan, Mike and Nina continued to demonstrate that being a fan does not equal a smart player. Will may have struggled in the challenge, but he certainly took control at Tribal Council and decided who would be voted off. The No Collar tribe will likely sleep easier with Vince gone, but do you think they made the best decision to maintain their numbers?

Do you think Mike and Nina will recover? What did you think of Max and Shirin's choice? Could you ever be that bold? Did your perception of anyone change significantly this week? Who do you think is in control of each tribe? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
Escameca/Blue Collar:Dan, Kelly, Lindsey, Mike, Rodney, Sierra
Nagarote/No Collar:Hali, Jenn, Joe, Nina, Will
Masaya/White Collar:Carolyn, Joaquin, Max, Shirin, Tyler

Survivor season 30, Worlds Apart, is off to a great start! We got to hear from all the castaways. Some are playing smart, a select few, not so much. Super fan Dan was completely oblivious to how he was being perceived by others, and committing a well known Survivor sin: don't start the game by arguing with and alienating your tribe. Vince came out the gate acting nothing like a life coach and managed to give off a creepy, stalker vibe with Jenn. Will promised his tribe sandwiches. Go figure. Carolyn, who many thought might be first out, demonstrated a great awareness of the game and a good judge of character. It was great to get a blindside right out of the gate. It was a nice twist to see a tribe choose to keep an older female so early in the game. This season is already delivering surprises.

How did your assessments of the new castaways change once you saw them in action? What did you think about the twist of having two people choose between Honesty and Deception? Who do you think is in control of each tribe? Who would you have kept: So or Carolyn? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 1.
Escameca/Blue Collar:Dan, Kelly, Lindsey, Mike, Rodney, Sierra
Nagarote/No Collar:Hali, Jenn, Joe, Nina, Vince, Will
Masaya/White Collar:Carolyn, Joaquin, Max, Shirin, Tyler

This season started off slow and it was hard for many of us to find someone to cheer for, but that all changed after the merge. We saw some great battles between actual strategists and one person in particular emerged as a real superstar in the game. We experienced some great blindsides, witnessed the return of the water challenges in Nicaragua, and were pleased with the finale and the felt like the most deserving person was crowned the sole survivor.

What did you think about the final challenges? Were you happy with the result? How did you think the opening statements went versus the answers the final three provided to the jury? What did you think of Reed's wicked stepmother speech? How would you score the jury? Where does this season rank for you against the other 28? Any thoughts or predictions on season 30, Worlds Apart?

Rashmi not only dodged a bullet, she managed to dominate the JSFL side challenge this season! She will be deciding what Nina's punishment will be for coming in dead last. We'll have the update on the overall JSFL winner for the Listener Feedback show on Saturday.

One of the classic Survivor sins is overconfidence. Jon's been guilty of this ever since he got rid of Jeremy back in episode 9. He even convinced Jaclyn to join his "strong, loyal 5" delusion against her better instincts. It will be interesting to see how she fares on her own now. We were really impressed with Missy's willingness to tough it out in spite of her injury, but we were most delighted to see Natalie's plan finally come together.

Is Natalie a hands down favorite to win it all? Will an all female alliance make it to the end? Is Keith a threat to win or a lovable goat? Who is your favorite to win it all now? What's your final 5 order?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 13.
Huyopa:Baylor, Jaclyn, Keith, Missy, Natalie
