One World Episode 9

We did not get a pecking order challenge in this episode, but food temptations can also help shed extra light on where castaways think they stand in the tribe. It was great to see an HII played, unfortunately Jay ensured that we would not get the dramatic payoff we were hoping for all the while ensuring that he would be the next to go.

How much do you credit Alicia and Leif with Chelsea's win? Does Troy have the connections to make a comeback? How do you think Chelsea will surprise us next? Who is your pick for a dark horse winner at this point in the game? Will Troy be able to go on an immunity challenge winning streak? Who is your pick for final five?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Tikiana:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Greg, Kat, Kim, Leif, Sabrina and Troy

We both think that Troy will be next to go unless he manages to win Immunity. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 8

So long sneaky banker. You danced, dodged, bobbed and weaved until Kim got some food in her belly and could think clearly again. Fully powered up, Kim managed to not only nuke Mike, but also manipulate Troy, manage Jay and almost won individual immunity. Can you imagine what she will be able to accomplish if she manages to win a second reward challenge? It sure would be great if we got a pecking order challenge in episode 9 so everyone could see where they stood.

Does Troy have a chance to recover? Should he play his HII now? Will he be forced to reveal that he has an HII to ensure that he can get enough votes to take control of the tribe? Does Kim have it in the bag from here? Who do you think the men could convince to swing their votes away from the all female alliance?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Tikiana:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Greg, Jay, Kat, Kim, Leif, Sabrina and Troy

Jo Ann thinks the annihilation will continue as Jay becomes the next victim of the women's alliance. Stacy thinks that Troy will come to his senses and set a trap for Kim. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 7

Now we know why they merged the tribes at night. The finance guy found a way to save a few bucks on the budget by trimming it down to cheese-n-crackers plus a couple bottles of champagne instead of the big feasts we have seen in past seasons. It was exciting to learn that a second idol is in play. Do you think Troy will keep that to himself, or will he be dying to share it with someone like Jay?

How would you rate this season's merge flag and tribe name? Who do you think is in a better position in the game at this point: Kim or Troyzan? Did Christina and Alicia catch a huge break, or will they simply be the last two to get voted out if new Salani sticks to their plan? It appears that everyone dislikes Greg. Do you think he will be dragged along to the final 3 like his predecessor Secret Agent Underpants? Do you think we might still see a female alliance take control of the game and vote out all the men?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 7.
Tikiana:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Greg, Jay, Kat, Kim, Leif, Michael, Sabrina and Troy

Jo Ann still thinks they will target Michael next. Stacy thinks the sneaky banker will be safe for a little while as they continue to focus on wiping out new Manano and send Leif to the Ponderosa. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 6

The shuffle barely had time to take affect, and now we are on to the merge. As significant as the merge usually is in the game, it was overshadowed by the anti climatic exit of Colton. We never want to see someone have to leave the game for medical reasons. After watching him be so ugly and unnecessarily mean to his tribemates though, a lot of folks were anticipating watching him get voted out, hopefully by a staggering, historic blindside to restore a sense of balance to the game. His exit due to an illness leaves a lot of that unresolved.

What did you think about Colton's exit from the game? How about Jonas' take on the role of karma? Who do you think will emerge as the dominant alliance? Will they fall back to the pre-shuffle tribal lines? Who is most likely to betray their original alliances and cross the line to create the new majority?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 6.
TBD:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Greg, Jay, Jonas Kat, Kim, Leif, Michael, Sabrina and Troy

Jo Ann thinks they may choose to target Michael as a post merge threat. Stacy thinks that Alicia is likely to be reunited with Colton. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 5

Tribal shuffles are an opportunity to reset the game and really test whether a castaway can adapt and improvise. Depending on the outcome, they can spell the death of a solid alliance or protect an existing one and just supply new vote out fodder. The random draw appears to have resulted in some seriously unbalanced tribes this time out. New Salani appears to be stacked with both physical and mental advantages as well as a decent shelter and plentiful food. On top of having two members that do no work around camp, New Manono was burdened with having to start over and build a new camp. It is too soon to say for sure, but given the return of some seriously physical challenges, it seems likely that we might be in for a old school "Pagonging" of New Manono.

Who do you think is in a more powerful position now: Kim or Colton? Do you prefer to see a random reorder or a schoolyard pick-em when it comes to shuffling the tribes? Does New Manono stand a chance in future challenges? Is there anyone on that tribe you are still cheering for? What would you do if you were in Christina's position? Who do you think will leave on a medical evacuation? Could you award a million dollars to someone who could not remember your name? What if the other options to choose from were Alicia and Colton?

Here are the tribes after episode 5.
New Salani:Chelsea, Jay, Kat, Kim, Michael, Sabrina and Troy
New Manono:Alicia, Christina, Colton, Greg, Jonas and Leif

For the medical evacuation, we think it might be Greg/Tarzan. If they opt for a double elimination and still go to Tribal Council, we think Christina will finally get the boot. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 4

That was one for the history books! The teasers for episode 4 said it would be something we have never seen, and it certainly delivered. It started out following the standard formula: reaction after tribal, a reward challenge with a slightly surprising victory by Salani and then it got interesting. The betrayal of confidence that Leif pursued combined with the petulant whims of a man child set a series of events in motion that we will be discussing for the rest of this season and probably as long as the show continues to air. Why do you think the Manono tribe appears to be so willing to go along with Colton's directions? Is Colton's behavior egregious enough to make you stop watching altogether?

Where did this episode fall on the scale "dumbest moves in Survivor history for you? Can you see any upside to Manono's decision? What do you think will be the best strategy for handling someone as nasty and ugly as Colton? Does he have any chance to make it to the end, or is he now the perfect goat who would get no votes except for possibly Greg's? Given what we've seen so far, who stands the best chance of coming out in control if we do get a tribal shuffle? Is there anyone in particular you are cheering for to get a second chance if the balance of power shifts?

Here are the tribes after episode 4.
Salani:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Kat, Kimberly, Monica and Sabrina
Manono:Colton, Greg, Jay, Jonas, Leif, Michael and Troy

It's anybody's guess as to how it will fall out if they shuffle the tribes, but we're both hoping for a Colton blindside courtesy of his creator, Sabrina. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 3

Happy Leap Day! We got another great episode to match this special calendar day. Despite their ongoing trials and tribulations, the Salani tribe finally managed to get their act together and put an end to their losing streak. They exited this episode triumphant at both challenges which forced the Manono tribe to confront their own dysfunctions, albeit somewhat less dramatically. With the exit of their first member we see a confirmation of who is actually in control of the men's tribe. Were you disappointed to see a potential, major villain leave so early in the season?

Who did you side with on the matter of sharing fire and shelter for access to the boat and fishing gear? Do you think the misfit alliance can hold together to control the destiny of Manono? When is the right time to try to flush out the HII? Do you think they made the right decision in targeting Matt?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
Salani:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Kat, Kimberly, Monica and Sabrina
Manono:Bill, Colton, Greg, Jay, Jonas, Leif, Michael and Troy

The women have the momentum now and we both think Colton will get his way and vote of Bill when they lose the next immunity challenge. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 2

That is two in a row now where the women have been their own worst enemy in the immunity challenge, and it marks an overall 3 in a row series for the men. Colton appears to be going out of his way to alienate his tribe. Unfortunately for him, the women do not want him either. Do you think having the HII has given him a false sense of security? Tonight we got our second DIY reward challenge. How do you think it went minus Probst? Jeff is continuing a trend he started back a few seasons ago where he more activley inserts himself into the action with leading commentary and by providing questions to certain castaways which appear to contain a desired answer. How do you feel about this shift in the balance of the game?

What do you think about Sabrina as the leader of the Salani tribe? Nina said they had no communication and no teamwork during the challenge. Will they really be able to follow her? Is Colton slowly losing his grip on the game, or did he actually take control of the Manono tribe this week? Why do you think the power alliance in Salani opted to keep Kat? Will Kat shape up or continue to undermine her tribe's chances? Would you give the other tribe fire if you saw them suffering? Do you think we will see another quitter this season if the conditions get bad enough?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
Salani:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Kat, Kimberly, Monica and Sabrina
Manono:Bill, Colton, Greg, Jay, Jonas, Leif, Matt, Michael and Troy

We both think the women will continue their losing streak. Stacy thinks Christina will be next to go. Jo Ann thinks the women might correct their mistake on day 5 and possibly get rid of Kat. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

One World Episode 1

Welcome back! That seemed like a solid first episode. Did the lack of a complete challenge affect your assessment? It would have been nice to go with the 90 minute version we got last time, but there were certainly some characters that stood out early. Two Chicken Chelsea was impressive. Jay's ability to make make fire with the bamboo saw was also noteworthy. Sabrina surprised us by finding the first HII, and Country Club Colton may have just silently taken control of his tribe by way of Sabrina's gift.

Did the guys hurt their long term chances by not sharing fire or completing the challenge? Did Chelsea hurt her future by renegging on the deal to share the chickens? Would you have opted to complete the challenge when you were already free from tribal council? Is Colton guaranteed to make the merge now? Is Matt living on borrowed time. Do you think the women stand a chance at being able to work together? Who suprised you the most? Did your impressions of anyone change after you got to see them in action in this first episode?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Salani:Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Kat, Kimberly, Monica, Nina and Sabrina
Manono:Bill, Colton, Greg, Jay, Jonas, Leif, Matt, Michael and Troy

Stacy thinks the women are not going to gel anytime soon and that Christina will be next go. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

South Pacific Finale

We had a blast at the finale! It was great to get to spend some extra time with the Survivors and catch up with the Super Fans. It was certainly a jam packed finale too. Were you happy with how this season ended? Where does Sophie stand in relation to other previous winners? How would you rate this jury? Did they reward great gameplay or was it another round of "bitter Bettys"? Do you believe that this is the last time we will see Ozzy and Coach? Who from this season would you most like to see play again? Where does Brandon's move to give up Immunity rank on the "dumbest move in history" scale? Make sure to check out our interviews for some extra insights and let us know what you think. Last but not least, where does the season rank for you in your best to worst scale?

Congratulations to Griffin from Vancouver, winner of Survivor South Pacific JSFL!

Griffin, like Sophie, played a relatively quiet game during the season and then rushed in at the end to claim victory! He picked Sophie to win before the season started and nailed the final 5 order perfectly.

Join us to wrap up the season with the final Listener Feedback show. Your final thoughts are due by 5pm PDT on Thursday, December 22. Make it count by sharing your unique perspectives on the finale and reunion shows as well as your thoughts on the upcoming season 24. Also, let us know where this season ranks for you.
