SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 2 Survivor Gabon


Today we interviewed Gillian Larson. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Gabon. She had applied 15 times before being selected this season and was sure that being back in Africa was a sign she was here to win it all. Unfortunately, the Fang tribe she helped create had different plans for her.

Listen to this interview to hear her evaluation of all her tribemates, learn more about the multitude of ways she contributed at camp, what secret knowledge led her to pick Crystal plus answers to questions you submitted and lots more!

Listen to this interview to learn more about her connection to last season's winner, why she thought Randy should have been taken out of the game, how she faired on that first night, who ended up covered in leeches plus answers to questions you submitted and lots more!

Gabon Episode 1 and 2


Woohoo! Survivor's back and finally in HD which was every bit as stunning as we had always imagined.

Surprise, the Parvati clone turns out to not have any social game and the "older" female is singled out for being weak. Well that first one was a surprise for many of us even though Jeff Probst essentianly called it for both women in the pre-season interviews.

What do you think Randy's chances are for having to leave for medical reasons? How much longer will Crystal be able to keep her secret? Who do you think will become the "evil" alliance? What did you think about Jeff's questions at the first tribal council?

Here are tribes after the combo episode:
KOTA: Ace, Bob, Charlie, Corinne, Jacquie, Kelly, Marcus, Paloma, and Sugar
FANG: Crystal, Dan, GC, Ken, Matty, Randy, and Susie

Jo Ann thinks Paloma will be the next to be voted out. Stacy thinks GC will push his tribe over the edge as Fang continues their losing streak. Who do you think will be voted out next?

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-1547. 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.

To celebrate the first episode, our intro music focuses on new beginnings. Our outro tune is dedicated to the setting for season 17. Here are the links if you want to learn more about their music.

Pre-season JSFL Gabon Picks
Curious how the JSFL picks turned out?

We created two charts, Week1a and Week1b, for the first episode since two castaways will be voted out.

How did your choices compare?

JSFL Results Update for Survivor: Gabon

Note: We'll replace the two charts with a single results chart after the episode airs.

Enjoy,

The response for those interested in this season's JSFL has been wonderful.

In fact, it has been so good that we need to close registration early to make sure we keep it at a manageable number of players.

This is going to be the most challenging season to date with two eliminations in the first episode. All you "fence sitters" need to get your picks in pronto! :)

Thanks,
Jo Ann and Stacy

FANG: Crystal, Dan, GC, Gillian, Ken, Matty, Michelle, Randy, and Susie

We're already at 77 players for the JSFL. If you're interested in participating this season, don't hesitate because we may have to close registration early to keep it managable.

Here's 39 Survivor fans gabbing about the finale for 3+ hours to get some closure.

For the last time this season, we hear from: Borneo Bum, Andrew, Debbie, John, Bill, Jeff, Dan, Ted, Carolyn, Terri, Mike, Amy, Ian, Kathy, Jerimiah, Steve, Kimberly, Ste, Meredith, Brad, Carol, Paul, David, Holy, Fancy, Doug, MikeK, Jeannie, Dave, Christy, Belinda, Sandi, Brian, Amit, Chris, Graham, and Shane
