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?

Nicaragua Episode 10

 

Wow! It actually happened. The sheep woke up and realized they were being led to slaughter, and they took action to change the outcome. Kudos to Holly, NaOnka, Benry and Fabio for taking an active role in their own destiny in the game. Survivor Nicaragua just got a lot more interesting.

NaOnka appeared to be instrumental in overthrowing King Brenda. Is that enough to make her a contender for the million again? Could you see yourself voting for Chase to win the million at this point? What would he have to do to become a contender? A lot of people are rooting for Fabio. Do you think he could win it at this point? Who do you think has the power now in the game?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Libertad: Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly, Jane, Jud, Kelly S, NaOnka and Sash

Jo Ann predicted that Sash would be the next to join the jury. Stacy thinks Chase will be on the chopping block. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 9

 

Hey, maybe there are more than 3 people actually playing to win this season. Episode 9 showed us that there are other castaways besides Brenda, Sash, and Marty willing to take some risks and take action to improve their chances to win the million. Chase, Holly and Jane have an alliance as does Dan, Benry and Fabio.

Do you think there's anything that NaOnka could do to the tribe that would get her voted out at this point? How do you think she would react if Brenda or Sash were criticizing her? What will Jane do now that she doesn't have Marty to focus all her energy on? Do you think Chase can survive without Brenda's support? What's your guess for the "big" surprise moment in episode 10?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Libertad: Brenda, Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly, Jane, Jud, Kelly S, NaOnka and Sash

Jo Ann grudgingly predicted that Jane would be voted out next. Stacy thinks Chase will be the next to go. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 8

 

Yay, the merge is here! Now we transition into the second, more complicated phase of the game. The consequence of actions carries greater weight. Each remaining castaway has to be prepared to convince everyone that gets voted out that they deserve a million dollars. It also brings with it the opportunity to overthrow previous alliances. Anyone that isn't in the top tier of an alliance could flip and better their standing in the game. Every tribal council that consists of an odd number of votes opens the door for the "swing vote". Someone on the outside or at the bottom of an alliance can break the tie vote and dramatically change their future.

Do you think Brenda, Sash and NaOnka have a lock on final 3 at this point? Who's their biggest threat and most likely to challenge them in the next episode? Who do you think is most likely to flip the game on its head? How would you have responded to NaOnka and Alina's admission to stealing from the tribe? How do you compare what they did to Jane or Holly's previous actions? Who from the original Espada tribe stands a chance to make it to final 5? Who do you think will get voted out first: NaOnka or Fabio?

Here is the new, merged tribe after episode 8.
Libertad: Brenda, Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly, Jane, Jud, Kelly S, Marty, NaOnka and Sash

Jo Ann and Stacy both think Marty will be the next to go. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 7

 

This season hasn't really followed any of the typical patterns. So, it was kind of nice to get back to a normal 3 day cycle along with a separate reward and immunity challenge. That did not mean it was boring though.

Would you risk a private meal the way Jane did? Do you think it was fair for her to eat a fish by herself? The merge is coming. Do you think we will see a shift in power, or will the old La Flor tribe regroup for a predictable finish? Why do you think Marty gave up the HII? Can you see any scenario where that works to his advantage? Do you think there is any chance that Sash will actually keep his word and give it back? Will Sash's slip in tribal council come back to haunt him? Will NaOnka pay the price for stealing food from the merge feast?

Here are the tribes after episode 7.
New La Flor: Brenda, Jane, Jud, Kelly S, Marty and Sash
New Espada: Alina, Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly and NaOnka

Jo Ann thinks Marty will be the post merge target. Stacy thinks that NaOnka will be looking to finish off Alina. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 6

 

How was that for an intense day? Usually, each episode of Survivor takes place over a three day cycle. This episode was unique in that it all took place on day 15. And in another rare twist, the active person with two good legs, albeit one of them being prosthetic, gets the boot from La Flor while the person with two bad legs that sleeps during the day survives in Espada. This episode also broke the streak for voting out talkative leader types. Both these folks were quiet background players trying to fly under the radar.

Do you think the young ones plus Jane are still in control at La Flor? Who do you think came out better at tribal council: Brenda or Marty? How much influence do you think Marty can exert on Fabio? Do Marty and Jill stand a chance against Brenda and Sash? Holly seems fully gung ho about her new alliance. Do you think she can outlast Dan and Alina if they go to another tribal council? What do you think about Dan's strategy? Could you play the game that way?

Here are the tribes after episode 6.
New La Flor: Brenda, Jane, Jill, Jud, Kelly S, Marty and Sash
New Espada: Alina, Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly and NaOnka

Jo Ann thinks Holly will be next when Espada loses immunity next week. Stacy thinks that we will get to see a great batlle between Brenda and Marty with Brenda making her exit as the balance of power tilts in a new direction for La Flor. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?
