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


This week we interviewed Michelle Schubert. She left the game in episode 8 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Michelle took the reigns early in the game and orchestrated an impressive blindside to save an ally. The shuffle put her at a huge disadvantage and landed her squarely in the minority of her new tribe. Her further attempt to silently fade into the background at the merge failed spectacularly when the initially marginalized Millennials allied with the Gen Xers to settle an old score.

Listen to this interview to hear how she was cast, the scoop on the merge tribe name, how she will choose a winner and lots more!

This week we interviewed Michaela Bradshaw. She left the game in episode 7 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Michaela was a beast in challenges and her willingness to say what was on her mind, made her a fan favorite. Unfortunately, it also highlighted just how big of a threat she was in the game, and that fear triggered this season's most surprising blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear about the drastic measures she took to prepare, why she chose not to expose Jay's idol, how she plans to change her social game if she gets to play again and lots more!

This week we interviewed Jessica "Figgy" Figueroa. She left the game in episode 6 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Figgy came very close to being the first person voted off her tribe. She flaunted her showmance with Taylor and somehow couldn't understand why that polarized her tribemates. Fortunately, her alliance stepped in at the last minute to keep her in the game. Her luck changed after the split to three tribes though, and she got the boot because she had not secured Adam's vote when they ended up back at Tribal Council again.

Listen to this interview to hear what she really thought motivated Michaela to help the other tribe, if she would have married Taylor at Tribal Council, where her relationship with him is now and lots more!

This week we interviewed Ciandre "CeCe" Taylor. She left the game in episode 5 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. CeCe was outspoken at the beginning of the game, claiming that Millennials "don't work for anything". It was a bumpy ride to the bottom after that. She struggled mightily in the challenges, landed in the minority alliance of her tribe and seemed likely to be voted out at any moment. She thought she finally ended up in the majority alliance after a twist in the game only to become the next blindside in a season of surprises.

Listen to this interview to hear why she thinks she was chosen to play, a comparison of the two camps, what she wishes they had shown about her and lots more!

This week we interviewed Lucy Huang. She left the game in episode 4 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Lucy was all but invisible in the first 3 episodes and then burst onto the scene with a direct attack on Jessica and the dissolution of the short lived "Mom's alliance". Ken bristled at being told what to do, turned against her and telling David was all it took to set the gears in motion for another blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear more details on what drove her to target Jessica, what she said to Ken just before Tribal Council, how being on Survivor improved her life and relationships plus more!

This week we interviewed Paul Wachter. He left the game in episode 3 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Paul came out of the gate blazing and assumed a leadership role that seemed to be working well for the majority alliance. On day 4, illness knocked him down and forced him to acknowledge that he was in a bit over his head. He bounced back and things were looking better until he misspoke in a casual conversation, which riled the "Mom's alliance" and resulted in him becoming this season's second blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear about how his illness affected his family, new insights on his tribemates, the "Night Chickens" that terrorized David and more!

This week we interviewed Mari Takahashi. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Mari was a huge fan favorite at the start of the season. Her pregame interviews told us she was going to take the emotion out of it, leverage her gaming experience and maybe even take on a villain role. She appeared to get off to a good start, and then shocked us all and herself by becoming the first person voted off of her tribe and this season's first blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear about the extreme measure she took to prepare, how her tribe handled the search for the HII, her assessment of her tribemates and more!

This week we interviewed Rachel Ako. She left the game in episode 1 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. It's the little things that you have to watch out for at the beginning of the game. How you choose to speak to others and whether you take a risk and volunteer for a specific task in the Immunity challenge can make or break you. Unfortunately for Rachel, her social game was not strong enough to compensate for a couple of events that combined to make her this season's first boot.

Listen to this interview to hear her assessment of her tribemates, details on what happened during the evacuation, how her dad responded to her experience and more!

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!
