Micronesia Episode 1

Welcome back Survivor Fans!

Let the twists and blindsides begin. Wow, that was a surprising start. Ozzy gets beat in the first challenge, outplayed by Erik and outwitted by Jonny Fairplay and Yau-Man. Then, Jonny Fairplay wrangles himself into a position of power in a group of All Stars. The Favs end up with not one but two showmances in the making, and then the Fans win the immunity challenge. It wasn't even a competition. A supposed super fan contemplates quitting on the first night, and the most infamous villian ever to play the game quits by asking everyone to vote him out first. This is going to be an incredible season!

Parvati was her usual self. First describing how she's going to bring so much more to the game than just flirting and then offering a demonstration of how she can reel James in by, wait for it, flirting. What did you think about Amanda and Ozzy though? Did that surprise you that she would make such an apparent blunder so early? Is it perhaps a clever plan to attach herself to one of the most physical threats in the game much like Todd's strategy from last season?

Was anyone else surprised by how Parvati and Eliza ended up going after each other? What is your impression of this cast now that you've had a chance to see them in action? Did Alexis, Mary, or Natalie even say anything in that episode? Do you think the Favs are on a course to self destruct?

Here's the tribes after episode 1.
Airai: Alexis, Chet, Erik, Jason, Joel, Kathleen, Mary, Mikey, Natalie, and Tracy
Malakal: Amanda, Ami, Cirie, Eliza, James, Jonathan, Ozzy, Parvati, and Yau-Man

We both think Chet will 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).

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 Jonny Fairplay. Many of us picked him to be the first voted off. I doubt if anyone expected him to quit though. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Micronesia "Judge A Book" Preview Show

Need some Survivor goodness to fill the gap before season 16 begins next week?

We've got just what the Survivor SuperFan ordered. That's right. It's time for our "Judge a Book" show, where fans and listeners send in their impressions of the new castaways before we get to see the first episode. These folks spend time studying the bios, favorites lists, and intro videos to gleen some insight and share their predictions with us.

This one is a whopper of a show too. It's the longest one we've ever recorded at 2+ hours. Did you expect anything less from what promises to be one of the best seasons of Survivor yet? :)

Many thanks to everyone that took the time to send in their thoughts. This week we hear from: Belinda, Holly L, Kathy, Doug, Holly K, Carol, Dawn, Paul, Fancy, MikeK, Sandi, and Brian.

If you're interested in participating in the Jo Ann & Stacy Show Survivor Fantasy League(JSFL), send an email to jsfl.admin@gmail.com with JSFL in the subject line to let us know, and we'll add you to the roster and send you additional instructions. The prize this season will be similar to last season, e.g. a Survivor t-shirt or Survivor DVD Blast game. Not sure what the JSFL is? Check out the links section below for the rules we used last season along with the results.

Robin Sylar warns us not to "Judge" in our intro song, but we can't help ourselvs. We are compelled by tradtion to once again end with Madsumo's "On the Grill", a favorite of JAB connoisseurs and a perfect fit for our preview show. Here's a link in case you want to learn more about him and his music.
