Nicaragua Episode 5

 

Wow, we were blind sided by that result! We thought Tyrone was playing so smart, laying back, observing waiting to see how things played out. Who knew he was right there with Jimmy T, chomping at the bit for his shot to take control of the tribe. He achieved the same result, but unlike the four who proceeded him, managed to do it without a big blow up at tribal council.

No one seemed to have considered the idea of a shuffle, but a few seemed ready and eager to better their position once the opportunity presented itself. Who stands to improve their chances the most? How would you handle that scenario if you were on the show? What did you think of Alina and Chase's attempt to console NaOnka? Would you do that if you were in their position? Did you buy NaOnka's explanation that she wasn't a quitter? Do you think Marty can use the HII to take control of La Flor? Do you think Yve has a chance with her new Espada tribe? Who do you think is in the best position to win after the shuffle?

Here are the tribes after episode 5.
New La Flor: Brenda, Jane, Jill, Jud, Kelly B, Kelly S, Marty and Sash
New Espada: Alina, Benry, Chase, Dan, Holly, NaOnka and Yve

We think we're headed to a double elimination next week. That said, we expect Jill to go for La Flor and Dan to be booted from Espada. Do you think we will get a double in episode 6? Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 4

 

That is four in a row now that appear to have self destructed in Tribal Council. The theme for this season continues to be, "Hey look at me. Watch me talk my way right into being voted out!"

How would you play it if you were in Marty's shoes? Would you choose to keep a physically weaker player that would vote with you over someone that could probably do more to help your tribe win a challenge? What did you think of Brenda's choice to let Chase know that NaOnka has the HII? Would you have kept that to yourself? Did she really gain anything by doing that? Do you think NaOnka was succesful in intimidating Kelly B and Alina? Do you think NaOnka will quit if the odds turn against her? Jill is susposedly a super fan like you. How would you rate her game to date? How do you think the tribe shuffle will affect the game?

Here are the tribes after episode 4.
La Flor:Alina, Benry, Brenda, Chase, Jud, Kelly B, Kelly S, NaOnka, and Sash
Espada:Dan, Holly, Jane, Jill, Marty, Tyrone and Yve

Jo Ann and Stacy both think Dan will not survive the impending tribal shuffle. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 3

 

The personal drama and overall intensity dropped a bit in episode 3, but there was still plenty of action to take in. Following in the shoes of Wendy and Shannon, it was Jimmy T's turn this week to demonstrate that he doesn't know when to stop talking. The big difference was that he was fortunate to have someone else in line in front of him to take the fall at Tribal Council.

How does NaOnka score on your Survivor Villain scale? How would you rate her if she shoves Kelly B down or follows through on her threat to dump her prosthetic leg in the fire? Would you have shared the HII if you were in Marty's position? Do you think he really had a choice? Can you think of any way that Alina could save her self from being voted out next on La Flor? Who do you think will step up next to be the leader of Espada? Has Holly recovered or can we expect another meltdown?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
La Flor:Alina, Benry, Brenda, Chase, Jud, Kelly B, Kelly S, NaOnka, and Sash
Espada:Dan, Holly, Jane, Jill, Jimmy T, Marty, Tyrone and Yve

Jo Ann thinks Dan's bum knee and overall lackluster performance will buy him a ticket to Loser's Lodge. Stacy thinks La Flor will lose their composure and send Alina packing. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 2

 

Tonight's episode was evidently sponsored by "The Dark Side of Human Nature". We've got at least 3 castaways this season that were ready to get ugly with others at the drop of a hat. Do you think that might be due to Russell's influence on the game?

If you were on a tribe with Holly or NaOnka, how would you take advantage of their erratic behavior? Would you include them in your alliance or vote them off as soon as you had a chance? Jill and Marty partnered to discover the first HII. How do you think it will affect their chances in the game? Do you think Jimmy Johnson is really calling the shots on Espada? Will La Flor follow Brenda's advice and use the MOP in the next challenge?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
La Flor:Alina, Benry, Brenda, Chase, Jud, Kelly B, Kelly S, NaOnka, and Sash
Espada:Dan, Holly, Jane, Jill, Jimmy J, Jimmy T, Marty, Tyrone and Yve

We both think that La Flor is in a full on meltdown and that NaOnka will be the next to go. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Nicaragua Episode 1

 

Welcome back! We got a great start with Episode 1 of Survivor Nicaragua tonight. It began with a classic psyche manuever leading the castaways to think the tribes had already been chosen as they made their first entrance on the show. Oddly enough, the only person perceptive enough to guess the truth behind how the tribe membership would actually be determined ended up being voted out. It looks like the challenges may actually be balanced this time. Maybe the older, Espada tribe will actually have an equal opportunity to win.

Do you think Jimmy Johnson really is a fan? Some of the things we heard him say in tonight's episode really left me wondering. Do you think the "men's alliance" started by Chase and Shannon will amount to anything? How long before Jud gets seriously hurt and takes himself out of the game on a medical? It seems very likely that the Espada tribe will use the Medallion of Power, aka the MoP, in the next challenge. Do you think it will be enough to help them win and avoid another tribal council?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
La Flor:Alena, Benry, Brenda, Chase, Jud, Kelly B, Kelly S, NaOnka, Sash and Shannon
Espada:Dan, Holly, Jane, Jill, Jimmy J, Jimmy T, Marty, Tyrone and Yve

Jo Ann is hoping that Espada will vote out Dan next. Stacy thinks that Jimmy Johnson is the next best choice. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Heroes vs. Villains Finale

We really enjoyed the finale. It seemed to fly by, and that was an amazing, close finish on the last immunity challenge. It was exactly what you hope for at that point in the game. Once again, Russell managed to win the last crucial immunity challenge and ensure he would have a shot at the $1M prize. If you are a Russell fan you probably are not very happy with the final result though. Who had the best and worst jury questions? Do you think this jury voted emotionally, or did they truly reward the best player? 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? Do you agree with Russell? Should the audience help choose the winner? Do you agree with Sandra? Is she the best player of all time?

Congratulations to Justin from Rochester, winner of the Survivor Heroes vs. Villains JSFL!

Justin and Brendan were tied for fourth going into the finale. Justin avoided a tie because Brendan didn't have any safe points left for Jerri or Sandra. We want to thank everyone that participated and help make it fun again this season and especially Steve who made it all possible.

Join us to wrap up the season with the final Listener Feedback show. Your final thoughts are due by 5pm PDT on Thursday, May 20th. We prefer to receive audio by Wednesday since it takes longer to prepare. You get 3 minutes. Make it count by sharing your unique perspectives on the finale and reunion shows. Let us know where this season ranks for you.

Heroes vs. Villains Episode 13

Rupert did not seem to hesitate to align with Russell. Do you think he might only play the hero when it is convenient for him? How will Jerri fair in the end game? Can you see any scenario where she or Colby could win? If Russell faced off with Colby for the final and lost, would it be justified? Do you think Parvati's concern about not taking any heroes to the final tribal council is valid?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 13.
Yin Yang Colby, Jerri, Parvati, Russell, and Sandra

Jo Ann thinks Colby will go next. Stacy thinks it will be Parvati. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out? Who do you think will win it all?

Heroes vs. Villains Episode 12

Interesting. Jerri decides that anyone who betray's their original alliance as quickly as Candice doesn't deserve to stay in the game. Do you think she forgot about her own betrayal of Courtney and Sandra so quickly? What did you think about Rupert's ploy to deceive the Villains with a lie about the HII? There's only a few days left in the game. How and when do you think Sandra will choose to use her HII? Do you think Russell was too rough on Danielle at Tribal Council when he made her cry? Will Russell's success in ousting her help him in the long run? Who do you think made the boldest moves this episode: Rupert, Jerri, Sandra, or Russell? How well does Russell score on the Top 10 Secrets of Effective Liars list at Psychology Today?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 12.
Yin Yang Colby, Jerri, Parvati, Rupert, Russell, and Sandra

Stacy thinks they will turn on Russell next. Jo Ann agrees for now. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Heroes vs. Villains Episode 11

Go and figure. Turns out Candice was the one to jump ship. Silly us, we thought it was going to be Sandra. We forgot about Candice's propensity to mutiny. What did you think about Amanda's decision to give the clue back to Danielle without reading it? What about Colby's role in that little exchange? Do you think Russell was successful in buying Candice's trust? Did she make the best choice for her? Is it even possible for a Hero to win at this point? Do Colby and Rupert have a role to play or are they just along for the ride? Who do you think will win the face off between Russell and Parvati?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.

Heroes vs. Villains Episode 10

It had to get a little worse for JT before they put him out of his misery. Were you as surprised as us to see Parvati play both idols? Do you think she bought Sandra's loyalty? Who from the Heroes tribe stands the best chance of saving themselves by winning Immunity and making it to final three? Will Russell stick with the Villains after feeling betrayed by Parvati? Who do you think stands to benefit the most if Sandra flips? Do you think Russell will find another HII?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Yin Yang Amanda, Candice, Colby, Danielle, Jerri, Parvati, Rupert, Russell, and Sandra

We both think Parvati should be the next to go. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?
