Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.
Caramoan Episode 3

Let it be noted, the alliance that many fans predicted between Corrine and Malcolm occurred on day 6. The only other person to find an idol with Malcolm won the game. Do you think history will repeat itself? Andrea is hard at work with plans to eliminate all her female competition. Meanwhile on the Fans tribe, Sherri is staying busy trying to manage and manipulate Shamar into not quitting. Luckily for her, she has "lots of experience dealing with snotty teen aged brats". She appeared to wrangle him around without even breaking a sweat.

How do you think the discovery of the OPII, Obviously Placed Immunity Idol, will affect the Malcolm and Corrine alliance? Is Corrine now next on the hit list in the Favs tribe? Who would you choose to keep on the Fans tribe, Reynold or Shamar? When is the right time to dump someone that only helps win challenges? How long could you tolerate someone that makes camp life miserable? What's your guess for when we should expect to see a tribe shuffle?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
Bikal:Andrea, Brandon, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Malcolm and Phillip
Gota:Eddie, Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael, Reynold, Shamar and Sherri

Caramoan Episode 2

They may have skipped the HII quest in episode one, but it was certainly back in for episode 2. The producers appear to have reverted to the simplistic hiding strategy they used in Samoa. If a castaway spends that little time and effort and finds it, was it really hidden to begin with? Both tribes have their burdens to bear, but the fans may actually have it worse than the favs at this point. At least Phillip is not screaming at anyone yet and works hard around camp even if it is just thinking up clever names for everyone in his alliance.

How do you think the discovery and production of the HII will affect the Fans alliance of 6? Will it be enough to sway Michael and Matt back to the cool kids? Who is your next pick to be voted off the Favs tribe? When is the right time to dump someone that only helps win challenges but otherwise makes camp life miserable?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
Bikal:Andrea, Brandon, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Malcolm and Phillip
Gota:Eddie, Hope, Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael, Reynold, Shamar and Sherri

Caramoan Episode 1

Survivor's back for it's 26th season, and we think it's off to a great start. We're big fans of extended episodes and wish every one was two hours long, but we were certainly happy to get 90 minutes to kick things off! We actually heard from all 20 castaways. In another rare turn of events, we did not see anyone out searching for the HII. The Favs did great to dominate the first challenge, but the Fans got fire with a jumbo version of the bamboo fire saw that was almost equally impressive. Francesca made history but not in a way that she will ever be proud of.

What did you think about how the returning players and new castaways did? Who surprised you the most? Did your impressions of anyone change after you got to see them in action in this first episode? Do you think the "popular kids" alliance will take control of the Fans? Will Brenda, Brandon, and Erik be the next ones booted from the Favs tribe?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Bikal:Andrea, Brandon, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Malcolm and Phillip
Gota:Allie, Eddie, Hope, Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael, Reynold, Shamar and Sherri

Philippines Finale

Wow, what a season! This is the first time we can think of where we would have been happy with any of the final four winning. Even the finale held some surprises when it came to the final immunity challenge and the jury questions. We had a great time covering the finale in Hollywood. There were lots of stand out moments and it was a pleasure to meet the cast in person and spend time with fellow fans of the show.

What did you think of the finale and the reunion show? Were you happy with the result? How does Denise compare to other Survivor winners? How did the season as a whole compare with your favorites? Was this a bitter jury? Were you happy with the winner of Player of the Season? How big a role do you think starting with 3 tribes had on our enjoyment of this season? What do you think about Survivor Caramoan: Fans vs. Favorites? Who would be on your list of returning players? Listener Feedback is due by Wednesday, December 19th at 5pm PST.

Congratulations to Chaos from Utah and Enrico from the Philippines who tied for winner of Survivor Philippines JSFL!

Philippines Episode 13

This episode could have easily been titled: Surprise! It started with Abi expressing what sounded like her sincere thanks to her tribemates for keeping her over Carter. The next big one came when Skupin won reward and picked Malcolm to join him. Then Malcolm surprised us by wasting no time in throwing Denise under the bus. They just kept coming. Denise is in terrible pain and might go out on a medical. Abi looked like the perfect goat to take to the end. But the biggest surprise of all was that Lisa was back and playing the game like never before. The "Justice Jumpstart" was still in full effect. She did not let their inability to blindside Malcolm deter her from her mission to make it to the end. Surprise, she didn't even cry once this episode!

We are down to the end now. What happens to Malcolm if he does not win the last Immunity challenges? Do you think anyone can beat Denise if she makes it to the final tribal council? How significant is it that Skupin is the only returning player to make it this far? Has anyone struggled as much as Lisa to make it here? There are four Tandang in jury. Does that automatically give Skupin and Lisa and advantage? What's your final four order?

Philippines Episode 12

This episode continued the trend of having the person that needed to win immunity the most actually making it happen. You have to give Abi credit for trying. The odds are really against her, she appears to have no allies left in the game, but she keeps working every angle she can think of to stay in the game. The family visit often times has the potential to really rescue someone's game plan. Lisa's brother seemed to really help her understand the threat that Penner tried and failed to get her to see. What did you think about this one? What stood out for you as the funny or odd moments of this episode?

Can anyone make a case for beating Malcolm? Does Abi still have value as a final two goat now that we have already heard so much talk about how she can not win? How do you see the final four order playing out? Who's game has improved the most over the course of the season? Did you think Lisa and Skupin really would have blindsided Malcolm? Who do you think will be the next to be voted out?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
DangRayne:Skupin, Abi, Denise , Lisa, and Malcolm

Philippines Episode 10

Now that the evil trio were not calling the shots, it was time for the "good guys" to step in and take charge. Lisa finally dumped Abi, and it was certainly interesting to see how Abi managed that as well as all the information she received at tribal council about how she is perceived by others. We got to see her and Pete scramble like never before, but it was too little too late. Who do you think did the most work to improve their chances to win this week? As Penner explained to Abi, she is not going to win now, but does that fact change her value to her tribemates? .

Does it make the most sense to eliminate Abi next? Do you think Penner missed a big opportunity? What did you think of the new final four alliance? Do you think they will last till the end? Who is most likely to cause it to fall apart? Who wins in a final two scenario between Skupin and Malcolm? How about Skupin and Denise? Who do you think will be the next to be voted out?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
DangRayne:Skupin, Abi, Carter, Denise , Lisa, Malcolm, and Penner

Philippines Episode 9

Paging Dr. Penner! Move over Denise. There is a new therapist on this island. Jonathan specializes in helping 80s TV stars. Lisa's in crisis, so good thing he's here. Time for more tears and some more introspection. Good thing the returning players are here too. Between Skupin and Penner, they ended up winning the challenges and shaking up the game. We were not sure Skupin had it in him, but it was great see the tables turned on the over confident evil trio.

Who is going to last longer: Skupin or Penner? Where does Lisa stand after all this? Who would you go after first, Abi or Pete? Who do you think has the best chance to win now? Who do you think will be the next to be voted out?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
DangRayne:Skupin, Abi, Carter, Denise , Lisa, Malcolm, Pete and Penner

Philippines Episode 8

Penner's back was to the wall. He was betrayed by his alliance and everyone was working to make sure he was eliminated. Then, when he needed it the most, he pulled a rabbit out of his hat. But that was only the prelude to this excellent episode. We also found out that Lisa is here for more than an "experience" and is interested in actually playing the game. She's got a plan that puts her at the end against someone from the evil Tandang trio. But wait, we are not even remotely done yet. Lisa is now ready to out Malcolm's HII and it is time for some major league scrambling before the tribal council starts. Wow, that was the most interesting, complex turn of events we have seen in a long time. It is so great to see all the castaways working hard to keep or take control of the game. Did Lisa just call the play at tribal council that booted Jeff Kent?

The Tandang trio remained at the core of the control again this week deciding who actually got voted off. How long can they hold it together? Do Skupin and Penner stand a chance? The HIIs are out in the open. How do you think that will change the game. Will anyone trust Lisa if she flips on the Tandang alliance? Where do you think Denise stands in all this? Who will Carter turn to now that Jeff is gone. Who do you think will be the next to be voted out?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
DangRayne:Skupin, Abi, Artis, Carter, Denise , Lisa, Malcolm, Pete and Penner

Philippines Episode 7

Tandang made Survivor history and promptly sent one of their strongest members to become the first member of the jury. Coincidentally, the merge brings an end to Denise's losing streak. Perhaps the polarity of her curse has flipped. Penner appears to have really lost his sense of the game and appears doomed to go it alone in a non stop attempt to win all the immunity challenges between now and the finale. Do you think he can stands a chance?

Will the evil Tandang trio remain in control of the game? Penner said Lisa was a potential under the radar threat to win. Do you think she really stands a chance? How did Skupin and Jeff Kent improve their long term prospects in the game by voting out RC? What did you think of the merged tribe name: Dang Rain, get it? Who do you think will be the next to be voted out?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 7.
DangRayne:Skupin, Abi, Artis, Carter, Denise, Jeff, Lisa, Malcolm, Pete and Penner
