Exile Island Episode 11

Greetings Survivor Fans,

Let's all be happy for Terry's wife! She just won a new GM Yukon.

According to Stacy, the "car curse" will be broken this season. Terry's now got four votes on the jury and he'll be the Sole Survivor if he can somehow hold on to make final two.

Cirie demonstrated some extremely clever maneuvering to get rid of Courtney. If Courtney holds a grudge though, it will turn out to be her worst strategic move in the game.

Here's the Gitanos tribe as it stands after episode 11: Aras, Cirie, Danielle, Shane, and Terry

Here's the jury: Austin, Sally, Bruce, and Courtney

Here's a quick update on the episode schedule. TV Guide is now indicating that we will get an episode on May 11th after all. If so, Jo Ann thinks it will be a final four episode. Which means the Sunday finale will only be 2 hours long instead of the normal 3.

We both think Danielle will be next to go.

We want to hear what you thought about this episode. Was there anything significant that we missed in tonight's podcast recap and analysis?

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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 this week is dedicated to Courtney. She was voted most annoying and biggest poser in episode 10 and now she get's blindsided and voted out in episode 11. She truly wasn't in touch with her surroundings. The outro music is dedicated to poor Danielle who was forced to have to think really hard in episode 11. Given her results, we think she could benefit from a nice slow tune with a simple melody. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Episode 10 LF

Greetings Survivor Fans,

The consensus from the listeners is in. Don't freakin sing to me if I'm sick! Courtney managed to asail to new heights on the annoying scale when Bruce went down for the count in this episode, and lots of folks wanted to talk about it.

This week we hear from: Fancy, Brad, Amy, Brian, Dave, Jason, Sandi, Bob, and Graham.

We certainly had fun with this show, maybe we were a little punch drunk. Jason gave us a good belly laugh, and it was great to hear Graham's voice. Graham, we understood every word, so we expect more of those in the future. It's great to hear from all of you. We really enjoy all the diverse views.

Whether it's about something you saw on the show that you're dying to talk about with someone, or a suggestion for how we can improve the podcasts, we'd love to hear from you too! :)

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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 for this week is dedicated to Bruce. To make it on to Survivor and then get knocked off by an illness is a tragedy. The outro is dedicated to Shane and Courtney. Think of it as a kind of a love song from Shane. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Episode 10

Greetings Survivor Fans,

Wow, that reward challenge carried quite a sting for one survivor. Can you imagine how you would feel if the folks you had been living with for the last 30 days declared that: you talk too much, you're a poseur, you're spineless, and the most annoying person out here?

According to her tribemates, those statements all describe Courtney Marit.

It will be interesting to see if it has any affect on how she plays the game going forward. Strangely enough, those four qualities may result in netting her $100k. Not bad for the least liked person in the game.

Here's the Gitanos tribe as it stands after episode 10: Aras, Cirie, Courtney, Danielle, Shane, and Terry

Here's the jury: Austin, Sally, ?Bruce?
Names in italics indicate a member of the pre-merge La Mina tribe

Well, right now there still appears to be one too many episodes before the finale on Sunday, May 14th. Jo Ann tried contacting CBS and our local cable provider, but we didn't get anything in the way of a useful response.

If Terry wins immunity, Jo Ann says Danielle will be next to go. Stacy thinks it will be Aras. If Terry does win immunity, we both agree that it will be Danielle.

We want to hear what you thought about this episode. Was there anything significant that we missed in tonight's podcast recap and analysis?

Let us know who you think will get voted off next and if you think Bruce will make it back for the jury.

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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 this week is dedicated to poor Bruce (sorry, can't resist the double entendre there) as well as several of his Casaya tribemates. The "pecking order" challenges are usually pretty good at disrupting tribe unity. This one certainly made an impact. The outro music is dedicated to Courtney and all the baggage she appears to be carrying out there on the island. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Episode 9 LF

Greetings Survivor Fans,

We're glad you stopped by to check out the show. This episode is a great example of our Listener Feedback show where you get to sound off with your views on how the game is shaping up, creative strategies that we all wish the Survivors would apply, and as always general observations on the humorous side of the events that have occurred.

This week we hear from: Carol, Hanna, Denver Dave, Amy, Brad, Sandi, Brian, and Bob. Jo Ann also included a fairly extensive summary of this week's Survivor Live with Sally.

Judging from your feedback, we're facing another episode with lots of new possibilities for us all to ponder and look forward to. Thanks to all the listeners who took the time to share their ideas.

Whether it's about something you saw on the show that you're dying to talk about with someone, or a suggestion for how we can improve the podcasts, we'd love to hear from you too! :)

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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 for this week is dedicated to Courtney's surprise ride on the bungi swing. It's also a message to the PR folks to say, "enough with the misdirections in the promos". The outro is dedicated to the Casaya clan who, we expect, will finally have to start playing the outwit and outlast portions of the game. This should be interesting! Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Episode 9

Welcome Home Survivor Fans,

Well, I guess it wasn't really a surprise how this episode played out (we picked Sally to go this week), but we were really hoping to see a glint of some serious strategy applied. In any case we had fun watching.

Here's the Gitanos tribe as it stands after episode 9: Aras, Bruce, Cirie, Courtney, Danielle, Shane, and Terry

Here's the jury: Austin, Sally
Names in italics indicate a member of the pre-merge La Mina tribe

We're a little confused as to how the next episodes might play out since there appears to be too many before the finale on May 14th. Either they skip a week or perhaps the "medical emergency" ends up delaying a tribal council and we'll end up with 15 instead of the normal 14 episodes per season.

If someone does get voted off next week, Jo Ann says it will be Bruce. Stacy thinks it will be Aras. Also, be on the lookout for Shane to attempt an all male alliance. If you can't beat Terry, why not join him?

We want to hear what you thought about this episode. Was there anything significant that we missed in tonight's podcast recap and analysis?

Let us know who you think will get voted off next and if you think Bruce will be the one evacuated from the island due to a "medical emergency".

The intro music this week is dedicated to poor Sally. There were a lot of folks that thought she was going to be the Sole Survivor this season. The outro music is dedicated to Shane and his remarkable willingness to drop trow and demand Cirie diagnose his jock itch. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Episode 8 LF

Greetings Strategy Buffs (and Survivor Fans),

We're at the point in the game where it really starts to get interesting. A multitude of possibilities opens up after the merge as we head towards the final 4. It's fun to imagine the different paths each Survivor might take, and the hidden immunity idol has definitely added some new twists to consider as all of the listener feedback we received highlights!

So, kick back and get comfy. Put on your thinking cap as we mull over what Bob, Hanna, Toledo Dave, Amy, Brad, Bonnie, Rob, Sharon, Graham, Carol, and a double dose of Denver Dave offer up this week

We're as excited as ever about what might happen in episode 9 this week and we hope you are too! Thanks again to all the listeners this week that took the time to share their ideas.

Whether it's about something you saw on the show that you're dying to talk about with someone, or a suggestion for how we can improve the podcasts, we'd love to hear from you too! :)

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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 and outro music this week are both dedicated to all the Survivor Fans out there. We're all waiting to see some more sophisticated strategy and eager to see how the next episode unfolds. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Exile Island Episode 8

Greetings Survivor Fans,

Wow, we might have gone off the deep end in the strategy department of the podcast this week. :)

Stacy's hung up on using the hidden immunity idol to bluff Casaya and undermine their alliance. Jo Ann has masterminded a three way tie scenario she thinks Casaya overlooked this time that would have nullified Terry's hidden immunity idol and still get Austin voted out.

Listen in and let us know if we're on to something, and especially if you think you've got a better plan in mind.

Here's the Gitanos tribe as it stands after episode 8: Aras, Bruce, Cirie, Courtney, Danielle, Sally, Shane, and Terry

The first member of the jury is: Austin
Names in italics indicate a member of the pre-merge La Mina tribe

We both think Sally will go next.

We want to hear what you thought about this episode. Was there anything significant that we missed in tonight's podcast recap and voting strategy session?

Can you think of a worse reward in previous seasons than the one that Aras, Bruce, and Sally shared in this episode? Maybe Survivor is having budget problems.

Let us know who you think will get voted off next and if you think Terry will try to give the hidden immunity idol to someone else in the next episode.

We've got several ways you can join in and participate. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-JASS(5277). You can record an audio comment and send it to us via email at joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. With either of those options, we can include your audio directly into the special Listener Feedback shows.

You can also send us your input in an email, and we'll read it into the show when we record. 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 the intro and outro music this week is dedicated to the Casaya crew. Somehow, that disfunctional band of misfits is managing to stick together even when faced with significant temptations. It's definitely paying off for them too. They triumphed once again even though they have yet to win an individual immunity. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.
