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?

Redemption Island Episode 6

 

Stephanie's gameplay may be lacking, but she might just have a future as a weather girl. As she predicted, a storm has settled over Zapatera. The cracks in the Zapatera 6 appeared to widen this week. We were treated to a new view of Sarita as the weakest member of the tribe. Several of her tribemates mentioned that she was annoying and referred to her as a princess, an "uptown girl" and someone who was not really suited to the game. The gap between her and David widened even further as he actively lobbied to vote her out. Who will they turn on next now that they are down to six?

What did David gain from arguing to keep Stephanie? How do you think it affected his standing with his alliance? Do you think Andrea has given up on reuniting with Matt? Will sharing the HII clue with Phillip be Rob's undoing? Will evil Stephanie finally upset good Matt at Redemption Island?

Here are the tribes after episode 6.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Mike, Ralph, Sarita and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Stephanie vs. Matt

Jo Ann's sticking with her prediction that Phillip will be voted out. Stacy thinks David is on the chopping block. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 5

 

The surprises just keep coming. Who would have guessed in the beginning of the season that the "Natalie White clone", who looked like she was hand picked to be in an alliance with Russell, had no social game? Stephanie's storm showed up, but she wasn't immune to it's effects. The bitterness that she and Krista cultivated seems to have ensured that they will not be long for the game. All told, Zapatera took quite the beating this week as almost everyone was shown to be flawed in some manner: Mike was a klutz and doused the fire, Julie dwells on karmic retribution, Sarita made a bad decision at the challenge by picking Stephanie instead of David, Stephanie failed to solve the puzzle, Ralph didn't know his left from his right, David is a hot head, Steve is unhealthy and unathletic. Do you think we might be witnessing the beginning of the end of the Zapatera tribe?

Can you see any way for Stephanie to survive? How long will Rob be able to hide the HII from his alliance? Do you think there is any chance that Matt and Andrea will reunite to get revenge on Ometepe? Does Krista stand a chance to upset Matt at Redemption Island?

Here are the tribes after episode 5.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Mike, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Krista vs. Matt

We are speculating that the Ometepe win was a fluke, and predict that they will finally give Phillip the boot after they lose next week. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 4

 

That was the 1-2 punch, and he is finally down for the count. But just like a poisonous snake that's lethal even after you kill it, Russell found a way to strike one more time before he made his final exit. So much for Ralph keeping secrets. Wouldn't you have loved to see the Ometepe reaction when they found out that Zapatera threw the challenge?

How much damage do you think Ralph's slip up will cause them down the road? Do you think Rob will end up sharing the HII with his alliance? Why do you think we never see anyone else from Ometepe looking for it? We didn't see much from Andrea this week. What do you think is going on with her? Who do you think will win the next RI showdown?

Here are the tribes after episode 4.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Krista, Mike, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Kristina vs. Matt

We both think the decimation of Ometepe will continue. Jo Ann thinks Rob will send Andrea packing next. Stacy thinks it will be Phillip. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 3

 

The surprises just keep coming. Until this episode, Russell had never been voted out. This season he is so disliked by his own tribe that they risked their future in the game to send him packing, if only momentarily. How about that Ralph? How long has it been since we've seen someone keep a secret when it comes to the HII?

Do you think Ometepe's win will help them turn it around and shift the game in their favor? Do you think the Zapatera six knew that Russell would target Julie, or did she come up with the plan to scam him all by herself? Can you see a way for Stephanie to redeem herself? Who do you think will win the next RI showdown?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Kristina, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Krista, Mike, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Russell vs. Matt

Jo Ann thinks Kristina we'll go next. Stacy thinks it will be Andrea. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 1

 

Welcome back! The first episode completely exceeded our expectations and came packed with surprises. We have already witnessed our first "no clue needed" discovery of an HII, an unexpected upset in a puzzle challenge, a complete castaway meltdown and our first Tribal Council blindside. That's a pretty impressive combo for episode 1.

Can you see any way for Kristina to redeem herself? Will she "pull a Marty" and end up giving Rob the HII? Will Francisqua be able to battle her way back from Redemption Island? Who surprised you the most? How would you rate Rob and Russell's game so far?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Ometepe:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Kristina, Matthew, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Zapatera:David, Julie, Krista, Mike, Russell, Ralph, Sarita, Stephanie and Steve
Redemption Island: Francesca

We both think tongue twisting super secret agent Phillip will be the next to join Francesqua at Redemption Island. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Finale

 

We enjoyed the finale. Fabio sure made it interesting. The geography quiz immunity challenge was weak, but his come from behind win added some excitement. Who do you think had the best and worst jury questions? What did you think of the last two immunity challenges? How do you think this jury did? Were they objective, bitter, or carried away by their emotions? Were you surprised by the result? How big a factor was luck for the final 3? Who do you think played the better game from the perspective of the viewer?

What do you think of Redemption Island? Would it have helped this season? Are you excited for season 22?

Congratulations to Dave from Australia, winner of Survivor Nicaragua JSFL!

Dave, like Fabio, scored a classic come from behind win! He picked Fabio 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 Wednesday, December 22. You get 3 minutes. Make it count by sharing your unique perspectives on the finale and reunion shows as well as your thoughts on the upcoming season 22. Also, let us know where this season ranks for you.

Nicaragua Episode 14

 

Surprisingly, Fabio managed to save himself and force the majority alliance to turn on each other earlier than expected. "Coach Probst" showed up again in what appeared to be another effort to rescue Jane, but this time it didn't work. Once again, he comes dangerously close to overstepping the bounds of a host. He seemed compelled to help Fabio, Dan and Jane to think about alternate strategies. Do you think he offers strategic advice to every castaway equally during Tribal Council?

Will Fabio be able to hang on and win his way to final 3? Who besides NaOnka would be willing to vote for Chase to win at this point? Who do you think has the potential to represent themselves the best at the final tribal council? Who would you be most happy to see win? Who would be the biggest surprise?

Here are the final five as we head into the finale on Sunday.
Libertad:Chase, Dan, Holly, Jud and Sash

We both think Fabio will be the next to join the jury. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 13

 

There is nothing like a good blindside to keep the excitement going as the end of a season draws near. Benry's spider sense was tingling but unfortunately he did not appear to have social connections to out manuever Sash and mistakenly thought he was close to Chase the whole game.

Are you surprised to see that the original Espada and La Flor tribes now have an even number of castaways left in the game? Do you think Sash made the best choice? Is there anything that Fabio could do to try to save himself? Do you think Jane's at risk of becoming overconfident? Do you have any guess as to what that NToS clip meant?

Here is the tribe after episode 13.
Libertad:Chase, Dan, Holly, Jane, Jud and Sash

We both think Fabio will be the next to join the jury. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 12

 

That was not what we were expecting from an episode of our favorite show. Watching someone go out of the game for actual medical reasons is sad, and it usually evokes sympathy. Watching two people take the easy way out and bail on the game is down right depressing and disrespectful to the game and the fans.

What do you think should happen to quitters? Do they deserve to be on the jury and continue to participate in the game? Sash and Chase both have HIIs now. Are they guaranteed to get to final 3? Who do you think stands the best chance to win? Who's most likely to get blindsided? What did you think of Holly's choice to give up reward? Was it a game winning move?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
Libertad: Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly, Jane, Jud and Sash

Jo Ann thinks Benry will get the axe next time. Stacy thinks Sash will be the one to go once mama Holly makes the call. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?
