Tocantins Episode 10


Turns out Sierra was blindsided at Tribal council after allafterall. Fans of the show recognize extreme overconfidence as a danger sign but those that aren't as familiar with this history seem doomed to suffer through it, again and again and again. Tyson certainly just became our new poster boy for gloating all the way to the jury.

Sierra was spared this time, but she doesn't appear to have endeared herself to anyone left in the game. Will she get to hang around long enough to see Coach and Deb be eliminated or will they decide that it's better for her to leave next? What do think Erinn's chances are to win it all? Has Stephen decided like Brendan that he's there to help JT win?

Here is the new merged tribe after the tenth episode:
Forza: Benjamin, Debra, Erinn, JT, Sierra, Stephen, Taj

We think Coach is up next to get the boot, after we get to see him flounder and fume out at exile for a couple of days. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 11?

Tocantins Episode 9


For all our disappointment in the anticlimatic end to episode 8, this one really made up the difference and then some!

Do you think Sierra even has a chance? Will she give up hope and accept her fate or maybe find a way to outlast Coach? Do you think JT and Stephen are in control or is it really Coach and Tyson?

Here is the new merged tribe after the ninth episode:
Forza: Benjamin, Debra, Erinn, JT, Sierra, Stephen, Taj and Tyson

Assuming he doesn't win immunity again, we still both think that Tyson will be on the chopping block next. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 10?

Tocantins Episode 8


Episode 8 cranked the gameplay up another notch! Did you at any point during the episode find yourself admiring coach's strategy? Of the remaining players, who do you think are the top 3 threats?

Do you think the inter-tribe alliance will rally or will coach be victorious? Who's getting a "winner's edit"?

Here is the new merged tribe after the eighth episode:
Forza: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, JT, Sierra, Stephen, Taj and Tyson

We both think that Tyson will be on the chopping block next. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 9?

Tocantins Episode 7


Episode 7 gave us a look at some serious gameplay over in Jalapao. Were you impressed with Stephen's performance? Who do you think is playing the best game in Jalapao? What did you think of Taj's fake idol?

Do you think JT might be too trusting for this game? Will Taj be able to take advantage of that trust? Do you think the inter-tribe alliance will decide who leaves next?

Here are the tribes after the seventh episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Stephen, and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Sierra and Tyson

The game shifts to individual immunity in the next episode. Jo Ann picked Joe to be the next to go. Stacy thinks Brendan will want to get rid of Tyson. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 8?

Tocantins Episode 5


Episode 5 brings us the solidification of the "awesome foursome inter-tribe alliance" and what may be its downfall all in one fell swoop. What was your take on Stephen's reasoning? Is he committed or will he cause it to unravel?

Who's more at risk: Taj or Brendan? When you hear these two words together "Charmin Cafe", does it conjure up a positive image? Do you think Ben is guaranteed to make the merge now? There is still no talk of a tribe shake up and no one ever mentions the mutiny option. Will the tribes stay the same until the merge? Do you think Jalapao can recover?

Here are the tribes after the fifth episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Sierra and Tyson

We are both thinking that Jalapao will turn it around and win the the next immunity challenge. Jo Ann is standing firm with Erinn as her choice for next to go. Stacy is sure that Ben will decide that Brendan is the new cancer in the tribe. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 6?

Tocantins Episode 4


After episode 4, the tribes are even again. That makes it prime time for a  tribal shuffle.

What did you make of Timbira's "pow-wow" to select a leader? Taj had no problem bringing Stephen and Sierra into the "Secret Alliance". Do you think it stands a chance in the long run of the game? Will Erinn's emotional isolation do her in? Could her weakness end up playing a role in Ben's plan to control Timbira? Do you think Brendan is in danger?

Here are the tribes after the fourth episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Sierra and Tyson

Jo Ann thinks Timbira will vote out Erinn next. Stacy thinks they may choose to get rid of Sierra to send Brendan a message. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 4?

Tocantins Episode 3


With episode 3, we transition from one combo challenge per episode to separate reward and immunity challenges providing two opportunities for each player to convince their tribe that they can't live without them or make the choice for who to vote for at tribal council much easier.

Erinn appeared to catch another break this week, but what did you think of her willingness to criticize her tribe again at Tribal Council? Did we get a glimpse of the final four this week: Taj, Brendan, Stephen and Sierra? Is Tyson playing Ben or is he really ok with being his assistant coach? Do you think Taj found the HII too? Would you hide the HII like Brendan did or keep it on you or with your stuff at all times?

Here are the tribes after the third episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Sierra and Tyson

We both think that Timbira is going to continue their losing streak until they get rid of Ben. Unfortunately, we believe they will wait to do that and choose to vote out Erinn next. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 4?

Tocantins Episode 2

Oh yeah! The challenge in episode 2 was everything we hoped for.

Both tribes provided some fierce gameplay that may result in some lasting resentments. Would you go all out and punish the other tribe in an attempt to win or try to do just enough to get by?

Sandy dodged another bullet, but Sierra seemed at times like she was trying to make it easy to vote her out? Were you surprised and blindsided at Tribal council too? Can you tell who's leading Timbira now based on how the votes played out? How do you think Taj's famous husband will affect her standing in the game?

Here are the tribes after the second episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Jerry, Sierra and Tyson

Stacy thinks the balance will shift back in Timbira's favor next week and expects that Taj may end up paying the price for sharing the details on her famous husband. Jo Ann thinks they'll take the easy route and eliminate Sandy. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Look for several additional interviews to be posted this week. We're also looking forward to hearing what you thought about the finale, the reunion show and the season as a whole.

Gabon Episode 13

We were treated to another excellent episode and a superb Tribal Council!

Back at the beginning of the season, would you have ever imagined that Bob would win four challenges in a row? Were you as surprised as us to see the animosity between the alliance of 5 that so effectively wiped out the Onion alliance? Do you think Sugar is "good people"?

Here is the tribe after the thirteenth episode:
NOBAG: Bob, Ken, Matty, Sugar and Susie

Jo Ann thinks the final order will be: Ken, Susie, Sugar, Matty and Bob for the win. Stacy thinks it will be: Ken, Bob, Sugar, Susie and Matty for the win. How do you think it will play out?

We will not be doing a Listener Feedback show for this episode before the finale, but we would love hear what you thought about it. We've got several ways you can reach us.
