Micronesia Episode 4

There's a new alpha male in the Airai tribe and her name is Tracy. To quote Yogi Berra, "This is like deja vu all over again." Is anyone else struck by the similarities in the episodes week to week as the balance plays back and forth between the tribes?

I want to say this was a blindside again, but after watching the video at CBS where you get to hear what everyone says when they vote, it appears that Mikey B knew it was coming. What's your view on Tracy after seeing her work her magic on Joel? Do you think that was a smart play for Joel? Was it the best play for the Airai tribe?

Can you think of anyone that has ever been as good as Ozzy at figuring out the optimal approach to a challenge? How do you think Alexis' assessment of Ozzy affected her fellow Airai tribemates? Do you think Kathy has quit and is just along for the ride at this point? What did you think of Eeyore, the fake Hidden Immunity Idol?

Here are the tribes after episode 4:
Airai: Alexis, Chet, Erik, Jason, Joel, Kathleen, Natalie, and Tracy
Malakal: Amanda, Ami, Cirie, Eliza, James, Jonathan, Ozzy, and Parvati

Stacy is back to thinking that Chet will be eliminated next. Jo Ann professes to have no clue and just agrees with Stacy to get him to shutup and finish the show. Who's your pick for the next one to get voted out?

Reminder: The Listener Feedback show is moving to Monday starting next week. To be included in the show we need your feedback by 5pm PST.

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 is dedicated to all of us who just lost our USB, and uh, Mikey B too. The outro is dedicated to Tracy. She's got game after all. Here's a link to the artists at the Podcast Music Network in case you want to learn more about them.

Micronesia Episode 3 LF

We've got a record number of people for tonight's Listener Feedback show and it's full of back and forth banter with the listeners too!

The LF shows are where you get to co-host the show with us and share your views on the most recent episode and predictions for what we can expect next. Seems like we were split this week on how to interpret Cirie's actions. Some folks loved how she stood up for herself and others wondered what happened to the previous Cirie they used to cheer for as an underdog. Most of us seemed to agree on Jonathan though. He appears to be doomed although Doug does mention a scenario that might offer him hope. Several folks mentioned that they really enjoyed seeing Erik bang Eliza in the head with the cushion continuing her head trauma trend for this season. Paul's right. They should look into getting that girl some head gear before she ends up with a concussion.

This week we hear from: Mallory, Carol, Bill, Kathy, Doug, Holly, Kimberly, Shelley, Drew, Ian, Tammy, Chris, Amy, Fancy, Brad, Steve, Paul, Jeannie, Brian, MikeK, and Sandi

Here's the uncanny celebrity resemblance that Toledo Dave spotted for Kathy on the fans tribe.

Kimberly included a couple of pics to backup her theory for who finds the Hidden Immunity Idol. What do you think?

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 Jonathan. He's a crafty devil but it looks like Cirie's got his number. It should be fun to watch and see how he plans to climb out of the hole he was shoved into in episode 3. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Micronesia Episode 3

There's a new alpha male in the Malakal tribe and her name is Cirie.

The blindsides continued, but this time it was the audience and not a Survivor on the receiving end. The brutal, extreme, battle ends up being a reward challenge which threw the basis for most of our guesses about who would go home out the window. Kudos to the fans this week though. As Joel said, they got beat twice this week: once by the Favs and then again by mother nature. Then, they somehow find the strength to hang in and win an endurance challenge for immunity.

What do you think about the new female, final 3 alliance in the Favs tribe? Do you think they can keep it together and ride it all the way to the end? Do you think Jonathan and Ami stand a chance now that they've been excluded from the "Pleasure Alliance"? Who do you think will go first from the Fans: Joel or MikeyB?

Here are the tribes after episode 3:
Airai: Alexis, Chet, Erik, Jason, Joel, Kathleen, Mikey, Natalie, and Tracy
Malakal: Amanda, Ami, Cirie, Eliza, James, Jonathan, Ozzy, and Parvati

Jo Ann thinks Joel will be next target. Stacy has given up on thinking that Chet will get voted out anytime soon and instead set his sites on Jonathan. 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 is dedicated to Cirie. She saw the opportunity to take charge and took the reigns in the Favs tribe. The outro is dedicated to Jonanthan and MikeyB. They are both in very precarious situations. Here's a link to the artists at the Podcast Music Network in case you want to learn more about them.

Micronesia Episode 2 LF

It's time for another super duper Listener Feedback show for Survivor Micronesia!

The LF shows are where you get to co-host the show with us and share your views on the most recent episode. Several folks were left puzzled by Joel's vote for Tracy, so we make sure to answer that one. More votes come in to confirm that Eric and Jason win the "I look like someone famous" awards. There's even a new nomination for Kathy. And predictions are all over the place for who goes home next, which means it should be another suspense filled show just the way we all love them.

This week we hear from: Carol, The Jimp, Kimberly, Holly, Doug, TAZ, Mallory, Kathy, Steve, Brad, Fancy, Paul, MikeK, 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).

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 again dedicated to poor Mary and the potential impact a decision like that can have on the Fans tribe. The outro music this week is dedicated to Joel and Cirie. It looks like they'll be calling the shots for their respective tribes this week. Here's a link to the artists in case you want to learn more about them.

Micronesia Episode 2

So long Mary. We hardly knew ya.

Enough with the quitting. This week we're treated to a classic blindside! Joel decided it was time to send a message, and Mary was basically collateral damage. Instead of focusing on how to make the tribe stronger and best equiped for the next challenge, it was time for an alpha male to establish the pecking order. Given everything we saw in episode 2, which tribe do you think will be in the best position to win the next super physical challenge?

In Chet's intro video, he described himself as "...a more edgy Ozzy". He also said, "I can pretty much do what he's done except I'm a little more out there". I think Chet's immunity challenge performance answered any questions we might have had about his physical abilities.
Chet DivingVSOzzy Diving

It's starting to look like the Favs may be safe for a little while as the Fans are on track to becoming as dysfunctional as the wack jobs in the Casaya tribe from Survivor Panama Exile Island. What do you think was really behind Joel's decision to target Mary? Is Joel shaping up to be our villian for this season? How would you rate the performance of the Super Fans to date?

Here are the tribes after episode 2:
Airai: Alexis, Chet, Erik, Jason, Joel, Kathleen, Mikey, Natalie, and Tracy
Malakal: Amanda, Ami, Cirie, Eliza, James, Jonathan, Ozzy, Parvati, and Yau-Man

Jo Ann thinks Kathleen will be the next target. Stacy thinks they'll come to their senses and get rid of Chet because Kathy can actually swim. 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.

The intro song is dedicated to blissfully unaware Mary. The outro is dedicated to the Airai alliance that sent her packing. They certainly made this episode a surprise. Here's a link to the artists at the Podcast Music Network in case you want to learn more about them.

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). 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 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.
