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

 

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.

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. Listener Feedback is due by Saturday noon PST.

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

That felt about right. We would be happy with two hours of Survivor every week. You could look back on these two episodes and call the results predictable, but it played out in a way that was entertaining to watch and appeared to provide some legitimate alternative options. In any case, if we have to watch a dominant alliance take out their rivals, it is best have it over in a single sitting. We are still excited to see if Natalie can make good on her plan to get revenge for Jeremy.

What did voting out Alex do for Natalie? Will Natalie still be able to get her revenge on Jon? Has Keith become this season's goat? What do you think of Missy's social game? What will Baylor have to do to make a good case for herself if she makes it to the end? Will an all female alliance between Missy, Baylor and Natalie last to the end? Who is your favorite to win it all now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episodes 11 and 12.
Huyopa:Baylor, Jaclyn, Jon, Keith, Missy, Natalie

Be honest. How many of you remembered that clue that Natalie and Baylor got when Baylor lost to Reed and Natalie volunteered to go with Baylor to Exile Island back in episode 6? They never showed them searching for idols, so we would not be surprised if you had forgotten all about it like we did. What a surprise to see it pop back up again in this episode. We have had so many surprises since the merge and the excitement just kept building in this episode. With her newfound HII, is Natalie now the most powerful person in the game? Why did she choose to alert Jon to play his idol and save him from being voted out?

Is it time for Natalie to take her revenge on Jon? Do you think Reed, Keith and Alec stand a chance now? Will we see an all female alliance at the end? Who will be most surprised at where they stand in the pecking order challenge? Are Jon and Jaclyn still calling the shots? Where does all this leave Missy? Who is your favorite to win it all now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Huyopa:Alec, Baylor, Jaclyn, Jon, Keith, Missy, Natalie, Reed

Wow, our wish came true! This game just kicked it into high gear. This episode contained multiple surprises that culminated in a classic blindside. Let's hope for more of the same in the next episode. With the two most prominent strategists out of the way, Jon appears to be the top dog for now. How long do you think he can hang on to his new found role?

What's Natalie's best play from here? What would Missy have to do from here to win your support at final tribal? Who is your favorite to win it all now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episodes 9.
Huyopa:Alec, Baylor, Jaclyn, Jon, Keith, Missy, Natalie, Reed and Wes

Here's a great lesson for future castaways. If you have a former beauty pageant contestant in your tribe, make sure you pay plenty of attention to her lest she thinks you do not care enough and bails on your alliance just to spite you. Last episode Keith's fortunes were looking fairly bright, and the next he blunders his alliance's plan and turns everything upside down. With the power struggle between Jeremy and Josh resolved, it should be interesting to see what happens next.

Do you think Jon and Jaclyn will maintain allegiance to the new alliance? Where do you think they fall in that alliance? Did they make the best choice for their game? Who is your favorite to win it all now? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episodes 8.

This episode should have been about the merge and the face off between two of the season's most strategic players. Unfortunately, it was tainted by the most persistent and undesirable story line of the season. The quitter is finally gone. As several of you suggested back in the pre-season JABBIC shows, the downside to the BvW theme is you can end up with castaways that are only here to support their loved one and quickly lose interest in the game when their chances diminish or the game gets challenging. Kudos to Keith. Who would have predicted he would be a standout at this stage of the game?

What did you think about Julie's choice to conceal food and her reasons for quitting? What did you think about how Jeff managed the quit? Who will Jon and Jaclyn side with now? Who will emerge in the majority alliance? What did you think of Missy's advice to Baylor? Who do you think is the most unlikely winner at this point in the game? Who do you think will be the next to go? For those playing in JSFL, will you choose a new USB?

Here is the merged tribe after episodes 7.
Huyopa:Alec, Baylor, Jaclyn, Jeremy, Josh, Jon, Keith, Missy, Natalie, Reed and Wes

Chalk this one up as a "building" episode. The controlling alliance at one tribe took care of some remaining housekeeping business before the merge, and the result was largely predictable although we had a lot of fun imagining alternate scenarios. Natalie made a nice, strategic move. Jeremy's good guy image became a little tarnished this round. What did you think about Probst's conditions for getting more rice?

Any guesses or suggestions for what they will choose for the merged tribe name? Will the remaining couples unite to take out the four remaining singles? Where do you see the alliances forming after the merge? Who is in the best possible position for the merge? Who is most likely to fly under the radar now? 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 6.
New Coyopa:Baylor, Jaclyn, Jon, Keith and Missy
New Hunahpu:Alec, Jeremy, Josh, Julie, Natalie, Reed and Wes

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
