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

The term "Game Changers" applies to production this season too. We shuffled out to three tribes, and that means one tribe will essentially start over from scratch at a new location. Historically, the tribe with the most hardship tends to suffer the most at challenges, but that wasn't the case this week. We were surprised to see an even distribution of capability between all three tribes, and even more surprised to see a few of the lower tier castaways playing really well when the game demanded it. Who gets your vote for most improved this season?

Who do you think will win if Sandra and JT square off? What would you have done with the goats? Who do you think is playing the best, and who is in jeopardy of being voted out before the merge? Who would you have kept? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
New Mana:Brad, Debbie, Hali, SierraT, and Tai
New Nuku:Aubry, Malcolm, Michaela, JT, Sandra and Varner
Tavua:Andrea, Cirie, Ozzy, Sarah, Troyzan and Zeke

Survivor season 34, Game Changers, is off to a fantastic start! As Andrea noted, the stakes are indeed high, especially for the most notorious players. Were you surprised by the results from the first two tribal councils? Do you think they made the best choices?

How did your assessment of the castaways change once you saw them in action? Who do you think is playing the best, and who is in jeopardy of being voted out before the merge? Who impressed you the most? Who would you have kept? How do you think the shuffle will impact the game? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Mana:Aubry, Caleb, Hali, Jeff, Malcolm, Michaela, Sandra, Troyzan
Nuku:Andrea, Brad, Cirie, Debbie, JT, Ozzy, Sarah, SierraT, Tai and Zeke

Probst said this was one of his favorite casts of all time. These first timers played extremely well. We certainly enjoyed this season and we were quite satisfied with the finale even though this is easily the saddest, most emotional ending we have ever experienced. The advantages fell a bit flat, as is historically the case, but they did deliver a certain amount of suspense leading up to when they were played in the finale. We particularly liked seeing such an effective fake idol, and the challenges were exciting and added a lot of drama to the last episode. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

What did you think of the final challenges? How about David's fake idol play? What did you think of the Legacy Advantage? How did the final three do with answering the jury's questions? Who in the jury asked the best and worst questions? What did you think of the reunion show? Where does this season rank for you? What are your thoughts on season 34? Are you ready for Game Changers?

We got another double elimination except this one was squeezed into a single episode, and that meant that things moved really fast and there was a lot to take in. This group of castaways keeps surprising us with their choices, and we are excited to head into the finale with so many of them that could possibly win it all still in the game. This week's Listener Feedback show will be our 1000th episode of the podcast and we really hope you will join us!

What's your guess for the Legacy Advantage? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will make it to the final tribal council? Who's your current pick to win it all?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
Vinaka:Adam, Bret, David, Hannah, Jay, Ken

Having advantages will not mean a thing if your social game is weak. Every day closer to day 39 heightens the tension and impact of the choices the castaways have to make. You can try to buy good will by sharing rewards, but it often does not work to your benefit when you end up disappointing the majority. One thing is for sure. Conducting "authenticity" tests on your fellow castmates is not going to win you votes.

Did Will earn the respect for his gameplay? How did watching the family visit affect you? What did you think of Adam's decisions this week? Did he make the right choices? Who's your current pick to win it all? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.
Vinaka:Adam, Bret, David, Hannah, Jay, Ken, Sunday, Will

We love getting double episodes on Thanksgiving week, and these were superb! The flip side of playing aggressively and moving on perceived threats is that you risk blowing up your own game too early. It might not be as exciting to completely wipe out the minority alliance before turning on each other, but it leaves a lot less opportunity for someone to slide through under the radar and take your spot at the final tribal council.

How will Adam use his Reward Advantage? What are Jay and Will's chances now? Would you draw rocks? How did sharing knowledge of Jay's HII with everyone affect its power in the game? Who's your current pick to win it all? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be the next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Vinaka:Adam, Bret, David, Hannah, Jay, Ken, Sunday, Will and Zeke

Stealing food when folks are starving never ends well. The choice to be selfish is not generational, and thinking something does not make it true. These are all straight forward lessons that you would not think were new concepts, but sometimes casting surprises us. This feels like it was a long time coming, but we were happy to see some balance returned to the game with this boot. Looking forward, we are stoked for next week's double episode!

How can Adam salvage the Reward Advantage? Do you see a path back for Jay and Will? When is the right time for the majority alliance to turn on each other? Who will be the first to play their HII? Who's your new pick to win it all? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be next two to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Vinaka:Adam, Bret, Chris, David, Hannah, Jay, Jessica, Ken, Sunday, Will and Zeke

It does not look like the Millennials stand a chance to rally now. Anyone still grasping at the original tribal boundaries is essentially asking to be blindsided. The other sure path to Ponderosa is to declare that people need to accept you for who you are and refuse to adapt to the changing landscape of the game. That's going to be a big jury. It is going to be tricky to line up enough votes to win the game regardless of your pre-merge affiliations.

How would you respond if you caught a tribemate stealing food? How would you play the Reward Advantage? Do you see a path back for Jay, Taylor and Will? Who do you think will exact their revenge first: Hannah or Taylor? Who will be the first to play their HII? Who's your new pick to win it all? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Vinaka:Adam, Bret, Chris, David, Hannah, Jay, Jessica, Ken, Sunday, Taylor, Will and Zeke

Did you get the number of that bus? It blindsided that castaway so hard it knocked them clean out of their shoes! Wow, that was easily the biggest blindside of the season so far. One of the greatest Survivor sins is dropping your guard and willingly showing others your strategy cards. The minute you start to feel confident or "in control" because you are in the majority alliance and begin to chart out your path to final tribal, alarms should be going off in your head. Given all the shake ups we have seen in majority alliances since the shuffle and split into three tribes, do you think any of the original, tribal alliances have survived and will reunite at the merge?

What did you think of David's choice to buddy up with Zeke? Who do you think is more likely to actually exact their revenge: Hannah or Taylor? Who will be the first to play their HII? Who's your new pick to win it all? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 7.
Vanua:Chris, David, Michelle, and Zeke
Takali:Adam, Jessica, Ken, and Taylor
Ikabula:Hannah, Jay, Bret, Sunday, and Will

It's really starting to get interesting now. First the Gen Xers turn on their own and now the Millennials follow suit. The tribe shuffle and split into three tribes has made for some intriguing developments. How do you think the other Millennials will respond? Will it free up the ones at the bottom of the alliance to seek out new possibilities or simply prompt revenge?

How do you think Taylor will respond? With three HIIs in the game, which one do you think we'll see played first? Who do you think the editors are favoring the most so far? Who's your new pick to win it all? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 6.
