South Pacific Episode 2

That's two really solid episodes in a row! Well, what did you think? Did Cochran redeem himself? How would you compare Coach and Ozzy's performance so far? We've seen two power alliances evolve now, one on each tribe. Do you think they can survive till the merge? Who are the real standout players for you so far? Can you see any way that Brandon can redeem himself? Last but not least, who's buff gets burned next week: Christine or Semhar?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
Savaii:Cochran, Dawn, Elyse, Jim, Keith, Mark Anthony, Ozzy and Whitney
Upolu:Albert, Brandon, Coach, Edna, Mikayla, Rick, Sophie and Stacey
Redemption Island: Semhar vs Christine

Stacy is convinced that Upolu will lose again and they will remove Brandon the wildcard from their tribe. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

South Pacific Episode 1

Welcome back! We thought that was an excellent first episode. We loved all the extra time we got to observe how the interpersonal relationships were developing. The castaways that are known Survivor fans certainly found themselves in some precarious positions in the first 3 days that included flashbacks to recent seasons. Dawn fell down the "Holly Hole" and experienced a complete meltdown similar to what we witnessed in Nicaragua. Christine managed to double up and mimic the poor choices of both Francesca and Kristina from episode 1 of Redemption Island. Poor Cochran managed to become a target even though Semhar failed miserably at the immunity challenge and then went on to antagonize her tribe.

Can you see any way for Cochran to redeem himself? Who surprised you the most? Did your impressions of anyone change dramatically after getting to see them in this first episode? How would you rate Ozzy and Coach's game so far?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Savaii:Cochran, Dawn, Elyse, Jim, Keith, Mark Anthony, Ozzy and Whitney
Upolu:Albert, Brandon, Coach, Christine, Edna, Mikayla, Rick, Sophie and Stacey
Redemption Island: Semhar

Jo ann thinks Christine will be next go. Stacy thinks it will be Upolu at Tribal Council, but that they will choose to send Brandon to Redemption Island instead. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Finale

We enjoyed the finale. Admittedly, it would have been more exciting to see the Rob Zombies turn on their master and shake things up, but it was also impressive to watch how the Robfather completely controlled all of them to the bitter end. Not even the time wasting RI twist could upset his plans. Regardless of the circumstances, it was impressive to watch him work his magic from beginning to end.

Did you enjoy the finale? Did you think Rob played the perfect game? Are perfect games boring? Who on the jury had the best question? Where you pleased with the result? Where does this season rank for you: top 5, bottom 5, somewhere in the middle? What's your final verdict on the Redemption Island concept? Do you think it could improve the game? Did you see anything at the reunion show that surprised you? Are you excited for season 23?

Congratulations to Debbie from Vancouver, winner of Survivor Redemption Island JSFL!

Debbie is our first repeat winner! She scored a classic blindside, come from behind win to take first place.

Note: We will record the last Listener Feedback show of the season on Wednesday, May 18th. Feedback is due by 5pm PST. We look forward to hearing your perspective on this season.

Redemption Island Episode 13

How about that. Ashley might actually possess some ability to play the game after all. It took 13 episodes, but it was nice to finally see someone besides Rob in the Ometepe tribe actually thinking about the game. Grant, Ashley and even Natalie finally displayed some strategic ability. Of course, none of them are functioning at the same level as the Robfather. Do you think it has been hard for them to watch at home and see just how bad they were outplayed by Rob?

Who do you most want to see return from Redemption Island? Do you think we will get to see Rob play his HII? What's your ideal final five? Can you think of any scenario where Phillip gets any votes if he makes it to the final tribal council? Who do you have picked to win it all?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 13.
Murlonio:Ashley, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Redemption Island Duel:Grant vs. Andrea vs. Matt vs. Mike

Redemption Island Episode 12

Ometepe begins to eat its own, and RI brings the reward dilemma that we were craving. Unfortunately, both events fail to deliver the disruption in the status quo that we were hoping for. The family visit seemed to further cement the disparity between the Robfather's approach to the game and the remaining Ometepes. How is that he gets a new shirt from a loved one? Do you think he's getting special treatment? Did you worry for his safety in the immunity challenge?

What did you make of Mike's choice after winning the duel? Did it help or hurt his chances if he makes it back from RI? Are you buying Phillip's explanation of his grand strategy? Do you think anyone on the jury will? Did you ever think he would make it this far? Who are you hoping will return from RI? Of the remaining Ometepes, who stands the best chance of beating Rob at the final tribal council?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
Murlonio:Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Redemption Island Duel:Andrea vs. Ralph vs. Matt vs. Mike

We both think that Phillip will get the boot next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 11

The total domination of Zapatera is almost complete. With all of the remaining members at Redemption Island, there is only one chance for a Zapatera to return to the game now. Given the divine intervention that Matt receives in the duels, that seems very unlikely. Be honest. Some of you are starting to think that Phillip has tapped into a higher power too, right? How else can you explain the manifestation of feathers and most importantly the vision that enabled him to find his shorts?

Now it gets interesting. Ometepe has to finally turn on each other. Do you think they will take the easy route and vote out Andrea? Will she accept that fate or go down fighting? If Matt makes it back from Redemption Island and into the final 3 against Rob, will he be able to beat him? What is your assessment of this group? Do you think we will have a jury that respects gameplay or will we see another classic bitter vote against the person that beat them? What is your guess for the vote out order of the remaining Ometepes?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Redemption Island Duel:Steve vs. Ralph vs. Matt vs. Mike

Jo Ann thinks Andrea will Rob's first target. Stacy thinks the ladies will demand that Phillip get the boot next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 10

We've seen race come up as in issue in previous seasons, most recently in Samoa, but this episode Phillip took things to a whole different level. As much as we enjoy all his goofy antics, it was really uncomfortable to watch him come unglued and attack Steve. Did you buy his explanation? Do you think he was justified in his outburst?

The Robfather appears to have an iron grip on the fate of the remaining Zapatera members. Is it safe enough for him to start voting out some of the Ometepe tribe now? Do you think Zapatera made the right call with the rice? Phillip appears to be really unstable. Can you think of a scenario where he could win the $1M? Do you think Matt or Mike really has a shot at winning if they return from Redemption Island?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Julie vs. Matt vs. Mike

Jo Ann thinks Rob will continue the Zapatera death march and target Steve next. Stacy thinks they will finally get rid of Phillip now that the numbers advantage is so strong. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 9

Attention all Survivor students. The Robfather is running an advanced placement Survivor strategy clinic during season 22. There will be special sessions on managing sleeping quarters, scheduling feeding times, encouraging a sense of entitlement and outward displays of arrogance as well as tips on how to organize a buddy system to encourage your alliance to spy on each other.

Things look grim for the 2 1/2 remaining Zapatera members. Do you think there's any chance for Julie, Ralph and what's left of Steve to make it to the end? Grant showed a small amount of rebellion this week with the fish. Do you ever see him attempting to wrest control away from Rob? Will the original Ometepe members be able to keep it together until all the Zapateras are gone? Would you be happy with Rob's final 3? Who will you be cheering for at the Redemption Island duel?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Julie, Grant, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Matt vs. David vs.Mike

Jo Ann thinks Rob will want to make Julie pay for those zingers she landed in Tribal Council. Stacy thinks they will get rid of Ralph. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 8

 

Targeting flakey tribe members has a long history on Survivor. There is a classic example of it in episode 11 of Survivor Amazon. One of the great dilemmas of the game is that you can essentially trust no one but you are constantly required to choose between small temporary alliances bound by trust. The one surefire way to fail is to demonstrate that you can't be counted on for either choice. When you are viewed as incapable of committing, you make yourself the number one target. Matt clearly has more to learn about the game. Do you think he will figure out what the true lesson of Survivor is during his 2nd visit to RI?

Did Rob do Matt a favor and give him an easier path to final 5? Do you think Mike was sincere when he and Matt were reading the bible together? How do you think Grant will respond to getting five votes at Tribal Council? Will Andrea be able to recover from once again being associated too closely with Matt? With Matt out of the picture, what should be Mike's next move?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, David, Julie, Grant, Mike, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Matt

With Matt safely out of the way for now, we think Ometepe will shift their focus to the remaining Zapatera members and target Mike next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 7

 

It took them 7 episodes, but the last remnants of Russell's alliance has finally been eliminated from the game. Stephanie's mentor must have been proud to see her exact another round of revenge in her parting comments. Who do you think has demonstrated the greater apptitude for the game: the group on Ometepe that blindly follows Rob or the Zapatera 6 who threw a challenge in an effort to clean up their tribe?

If Matt returns, do you think Rob can welcome him back without risking a betrayal? Who do you think will be the first to flip on their tribe: Phillip, Andrea, David or Ralph? Does Rob have a strong enough alliance to protect him after the merge? Can you see any way for the outnumbered, remaining members of Zapatera to have a shot at winning this season? The merge is finally upon us. If you were playing, who would you want on your jury if you made it to the final tribal council?

Here are the tribes after episode 7.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Mike, Ralph and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Sarita vs. Matt

Jo Ann thinks Mike will be voted out. Stacy thinks Rob will have the majority alliance and will target David as his biggest threat. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?
