Samoa Episode 11

The contrast is so stark for us as we watch the events unfold. John thinks he is having a discussion with an ally and an equal in the game. Russell decides that a new threat has surfaced, partially of his own making, and needs to be eliminated immediately. A line was crossed in the course of what seemed like a friendly conversation and the target is completely unaware of the impending danger. John might as well have been in the cage with the chickens at that point.

Do you think Shambo will feel betrayed by Foa Foa and flip back to Galu? Will she be willing to force a tie at the next tribal council? Would you try to keep her till the end, or would it be better to get rid of her next? It appears now that Galu has become the underdogs. Are you tempted to start rooting for one of them to strike back and win now?

Here is the tribe after the eleventh episode:
Aiga: Brett, Dave, Jaison, Mick, Monica, Natalie, Russell H, Shambo

Jo Ann thinks Mick will not survive questioning Russell's allegiance. Stacy thinks they need to get rid of Shambo because she has served her purpose and can not be trusted. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Samoa Episode 10

Even when they make a point of tracking Russell, he outwits them and finds another Hidden Immunity Idol! He has without a doubt earned a place in Survivor history and we are only at episode 10 for this season.

Why do you think old Danger Dave was so willing to leave his future in the game and making it to the finals to chance? Now that Laura's gone, who should Foa Foa focus on next? Do you think anyone from Galu besides Shambo stands a chance of making it to the final four now?

Here is the tribe after the tenth episode:
Aiga: Brett, Dave, Jaison, John, Mick, Monica, Natalie, Russell H, Shambo

Jo Ann thinks Brett will be the next victim from Galu to join the jury. Stacy thinks they will all wise up and focus on taking out Russell. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Samoa Episode 9

We did not expect they could top the last episode, but this one seems to have succeeded. From a pure gameplay perspective, Russell is heads and shoulders above his Aiga tribemates.

Russell found a way to survive another week and take the Galu tribe down another notch. Do you think he stands a chance against Laura? Are they making it too easy to find the Hidden Immunity Idols? Is it possible that we might have underestimated Shambo when it comes to strategic gameplay? Will Russell be able to throw them off his tracks as he searches for his third HII? Are you impressed with Laura's ability to win two individual immunities in a row? Would you be happy if she won at this point?

Here is the tribe after the ninth episode:
Aiga: Brett, Dave, Jaison, John, Laura, Mick, Monica, Natalie, Russell H, Shambo

We both are betting that Galu's losing streak will continue, and Laura will be the next to leave. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Samoa Episode 8

Wow, that has to be one of the best, most action packed merge episodes we have seen in a long time. We really enjoyed watching all the scheming and scrambling for position with multiple twists and a super blindside vote out thrown in for good measure.

Will Galu proceed to self destruct? Can you see any way for the the Foa Foa underdogs to rally? How do you think Laura and John faired in this episode? Could Jaison go far now that everyone agrees he is no threat? Do you think the reign of Evil Russell is finally over? Who do you think is the biggest threat to win?

Here is the new merged tribe after the eighth episode:
Aiga: Brett, Dave, Jaison, John, Kelly, Laura, Mick, Monica, Natalie, Russell H, Shambo

Jo Ann thinks Laura will be the next to leave. Stacy thinks Russell's time is up. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Samoa Episode 7

What does it mean when the rational mind of a doctor starts grasping at superstitious reasons to explain his tribe's string of losses? Was that somehow another reference to Russell Swan? As in, the chief necklace knocked Russell out of the game, and it's responsible for us always losing too! Yeah, that must be the answer.

Jeff called out Foa Foa as one of the worst tribes in Survivor history. Do you think there is any chance they will survive after the merge? Are there any weaknesses in the plan that the men from Galu put in action this week? Do you think Laura really bonded with evil Russell? With the merge coming, will Shambo choose to flip and join her friends at Foa Foa right away, or will she stick close to her new Galu buddies?

Here are tribes after the seventh episode:
Galu: Brett, Dave, Erik, John, Kelly, Laura, Monica, Shannon
Foa Foa: Jaison, Mick, Natalie, Russell H

Jo Ann thinks Dave will be the next to leave. Stacy thinks Galu will hold it together long enough to take out a couple more from Foa Foa, and that means that Jaison will be next. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Samoa Episode 6

We never like to see someone go out on a medical, but it seemed a bit unbalanced to hear Jeff describe that as the scariest moment in Survivor history. How do you think it compared to Michael Skupin passing out and falling face first into a fire back in season 2 and burning all the skin off his hands?

Do you think Foa Foa can take advantage of this shift in momentum? Who do you think Galu will elect as their new chief? Will Shambo finally find a home in Galu, or will she defect to Foa Foa the first chance she gets?

Here are tribes after the sixth episode:
Galu: Brett, Dave, Erik, John, Kelly, Laura, Monica, Shannon
Foa Foa: Jaison, Liz, Mick, Natalie, Russell H

We both think that the momentum will shift back to Foa Foa and believe that Monica will be next to go from Galu. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Samoa Episode 5

So much for a Foa Foa winning streak. The immunity challenge never even looked like it was close. They have now lost half their tribe. Do you think anyone from Foa Foa could still have a shot at winning this one?

Who do you think will be next to go from Galu if they lose another immunity? Shambo seems to go out of her way to make herself an easy choice. Danger Dave appears to have trouble getting out of his own way too. Do you think good Russell might ever be at risk? Who do you think is in danger of leaving on a medical in episode 6?

Here are tribes after the fifth episode:
Galu: Brett, Dave, Erik, John, Kelly, Laura, Monica, Shannon, Russell S
Foa Foa: Jaison, Liz, Mick, Natalie, Russell H

Jo Ann thinks Shambo will finally be voted out. Stacy thinks that Liz made a fatal error and will be next to go. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Tocantins Finale


For only the 2nd time in Survivor history we had a unanimous vote for the winner. Were you as surprised as we were by that? Did you agree with the decision to get rid of Taj in 4th? Would it really have been a no brainer to take Erinn to the end too?

 

Congratulations to Debbie A, winner of the Survivor Tocantins JSFL!

She jumped from an 8 way tie for 12th to the #1 spot by not only guessing the final four order correctly but also picking JT as her original USB before the first episode ever aired and sticking with him till the end.

 

We'll record the final Listener Feedback show for Survivor Tocantins on Thursday, May 21st at 5pm. We would love to hear your take on the finale, the reunioun show, and the season as a whole. Does Survivor Tocantins make your top 10 list?

Tocantins Episode 13


Ah, the episode many of us have waited for has finally arrived. Was it what you hoped for? Do you think his exit was noble and in keeping with how he said he'd "change the game"? Did you buy the stories about asthma and ruptured discs?

Stephen did not vote with JT. Do you think they really will make final 2 together? Who would JT pick if he wins the final immunity if not Stephen? Does Erinn really have a chance if she doesn't win the next two immunity challenges?

Here is the merged tribe after the thirteenth episode:
Forza: Erinn, JT, Stephen, Taj

We both still think Stephen is in a good position to win. Who do you think will be the sole survivor?

The Coach Song
I know I'm the greatest player I have ever seen.
I'm coach McBoast of Survivor Tocantins

I know my talents may seem so unreal
Even I confuse myself with the man of steel

I'm the most desirable of all the guys
I can even vote off people with just my eyes

My strategies are so dangerous
Cause I'm the only one with death defying life experience

The coach persona is really just a sham
I just pretend to be the renaissance man

If they find out I'm all boast and no bite
They're gonna send me off to Exile tonight

I don't want to prove myself
Oh what a fright
They're gonna send me off to Exile tonight

Tocantins Episode 12


Some may complain that the game has become too predictable at this stage as we watch the Timbira members drop one by one. We feel that the editing has been excellent in contrast though. We are never quite sure how it is going to play out as the focus continues to swing back and forth from one potential vote out candidate to another, keeping us guessing until the final vote is counted.

Do you want to see coach in the final two? What would you tell him to calm his fears after seeing Debbie voted out? Have Stephen and JT become too confident? Would you vote to give a millionaire another million?

Here is the merged tribe after the twelth episode:
Forza: Benjamin, Erinn, JT, Stephen, Taj

We both think Coach will be next to go. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 13?
