China Episode 5 LF

From this week's Listener Feedback, it appears that the heat has temporarily diminished for Jean Robert and focused instead on PG and Jaime. Some believe it a masterstroke, others maintain that throwing a challenge is a classic Survivor Sin which only results in your impending doom. Either way, we're enjoying the drama.

The LF shows are where you get to co-host the show with us and share your views on the most recent episode. John and Brian take us to task for abandoning James too soon, we're split as to whether this was the first ever justified challenge sabotage, but everyone's upset with Jamie and PG for laughing and giving it away.

This week we hear from: Dan and Katie, Kathy, Doug, Kimberly, Toledo Dave, John, Paul, Randy, Bob, Sandi, MikeK, Brian and Lenore

We love hearing what you thought about each episode, and we've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The songs in this episode are dedicated to the gravedigger. Most of us want to see him fight to stay even though he's facing terrible odds. Here's hoping he gives it his all. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

China Episode 5

This season keeps delivering classic Survivor moments that we all enjoy. Just when both tribes get settled in and comfortable, everything gets turned upside down.

Zhan Hu's interpretation of the "kidnap switch" was priceless. The bond between Denise and James was a bit of a surprise, and it appears that a showmance, another classic Survivor goof, is developing between Jaime and Eric.

What did you think of PG's plan to throw the challenge? Jean Robert is working to save himself, but do you think he stands a chance? Who's really calling the shots in Zhan Hu now? Do you think James might actually quit without being voted out?

Here's the tribes after episode 5.
Fei Long: Amanda, Courtney, Denise, Frosti, Jean-Robert, Sherea, Todd
Zhan Hu: Eric, Jaime, James, and Peih-Gee

James basically quit in this episode, so it seems only natural to expect that he'll be the next to go.

Who's your pick for the next one to get voted out?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The intro song this week is dedicated to the shake up that hit both teams this week. The outro is dedicated to PG, Jaime, and Eric. They made the most of their underdog status and hatched a plan to even things up before the merge. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

China Episode 4 LF

Topics from this week's Listener Feedback include: the horseshoe that Todd evidently sat on at some point in his past, Sherea's work ethic, Jean Robert's mandarin skills, and wait for it.... Denise speaks!

The LF shows are where you get to co-host the show with us and share your views on the most recent episode. Jean Robert miraculously banked more good will with Fei Long this week, but listener Kathy still thinks he's creepy. We're all enjoying the uber aggressive physical challenges and generally seem to be enjoying this season significantly more than last season. There are several theories in the feedback this week, but it's anyone's guess as to what will really happen given the tribal shuffle we're looking at in episode 5.

This week we hear from: Kathy, John, Kimberly, Marina, Randy, Brad, Taz, Mike, Paul, and Brian

We love hearing what you thought, and We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The intro music is dedicated to Jean Robert. It's safe to say that most if not all of us were blown away when he broke out his rusty Mandarin skills to help make the most of the reward. The outro is dedicated to all the changes we're expecting in episode 5. Just when you think you have it figured out, they switch the tribes around. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

China Episode 4

Episode 4 offers up another classic Survivor dilema. Who do you value more: a workhorse in camp or someone that helps you win challenges?

Dave's erratic behavior and caustic leadership style finally led to his downfall. We got to see a new side of Sherea too. Fei Long resumes their winning streak, and Todd is quite possibly the luckiest person to ever play the game.

Why do you think Fei Long chose to kidnap Dave? What do you think of Jean Robert now? Do you think his tribemates are really buying into his come from behind strategy? Who will emerge as the new leader in Zhan Hu and will they be able to to convince Sherea to actually do some work in camp?

Here's the tribes after episode 4.
Fei Long: Aaron, Amanda, Courtney, Denise, James, Jean-Robert, Todd
Zhan Hu: Eric, Frosti, Jaime, Peih-Gee, Sherea

Given that we're looking at a tribe shuffle next week, Jo Ann says she's got no clue who will be voted out next. Stacy's going to go with Courtney since she appears to have the least to offer any tribe.

Who's your pick for the next one to get voted out?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com . Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

Both songs this week are dedicated to Dave. He certainly took an interesting approach to providing leadership. We're hoping it will make for another great interview. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

China Episode 3 LF

From this week's feedback, we all seemed to really enjoy the surprises in episode 3.

The LF shows are where you get to co-host the show with us and share your views on the most recent episode. Once again, Jean Robert's "strategy" is a hot button topic for many listeners. Courtney sparked many comparisons to the infamous flubbed final four fire starting challenge between Becky and Sundra in Survivor Cook Islands as well as Jaime's rope cutting fiasco from episode 5 of Survivor Guatemala. Several folks expressed a strong disappointment in Leslie's choices given our affinity for true fans of the show.

This week we hear from: Jennie, Bill, Belinda, Toledo Dave, Brian, Kathy, Taz, Brad, Paul, Graham, Sandi, MikeK, and JoshuaJ

We love hearing what you thought, and We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277).

Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.

The intro music is dedicated to Jean Robert, AKA SnuggleBunny. The outro is dedicated to this week's challenge where the warriors face off. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

SFP Interview: Leslie Nease from Survivor China

Woohoo!

We got to do a phone interview with Leslie Nease today, and we can't wait to share it with you.

Like a lot of you, we've been really missing the extra "behind the scenes" info we used to get from watching Survivor Live. Each TV episode condenses 3 days down to about 45 minutes minus the commercials. We all know there's lots more that happens that we don't get to see.

So, when we were offered the opportunity to do interviews this season, we were really excited and started thinking about how to ask questions to provide some extra details about Leslie's experience, her fellow Survivors and life at Fei Long's camp.

Let us know if you enjoyed the interview. We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and attach it or just type up a quick text message and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com.

China Episode 3

Wow, episode 3 of Survivor China was packed with even more twists, turns and surprises than last week!

Daffy Dave continued to berate his tribemates with wacky outbursts, developed a new compulsion to clean things in his outdoor surroundings, and decided to compete in the reward challenge by stripping down to his birthday suit. Amazingly, Zhan Hu easily won both challenges. Ok, so no one was surprised to find out that Courtney was worthless in a physical challenge. Leslie, the Christian Radio Host, turns out to be the least trusted person in the game.

Who do you think is really pulling the strings in Fei Long? Could Jean Robert emerge as the "puppet master" of the tribe in spite of his apparent lack of a social game? How do you think the two tribes compare now?

Here's the tribes after episode 3.
Fei Long: Aaron, Amanda, Courtney, Denise, James, Jean-Robert, Todd
Zhan Hu: Dave, Eric, Frosti, Jaime, Peih-Gee, Sherea

We're betting that Zhan Hu's victory will be short lived, and we're going to pick Dave again as next to go.

Who's your pick for the next one to get voted out?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277).

Everyone we heard from this week really enjoyed episode 2, and several of you offered up some great observations on how this season is shaping up.

The LF shows are where you get to co-host the show with us and share your views on the most recent episode. This week's themes focus on praise for Todd's skillful play, condemnation of Jean Robert's "lazy man" strategy, destructive Dave's spiral into oblivion, and the potential impact of the Hidden Immunity Idol along with some parting shots at Ashley.

This week we hear from: Kathy, Ali, Taz, Brad, Randy, Jeannie, Graham, and Paul

We love hearing what you thought, and We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277).
