Samoa Finale

Now that was an excellent finale! We got lots of tension, drama and gameplay in the final episode and a bit more in the reunion show. We had a great time attending and covering the events from the Thursday viewing party, Friday interview with Shambo, hanging out with Christy and Mark while getting to talk informally and take pictures with the castaways on Saturday. On Sunday, we attended the finale at the studio and did the red carpet interviews. We closed out the day at the after party and then came back to the hotel to watch all the interviews we recorded earlier. We had great time chatting about our favorite show with fellow fans MikeK, Christy, Mark, Scott, Steve, Big Mike, Betsy, April, Ryan, Dennis, TJ and Larry. As always, we want to say a big thanks to SEG and CBS for providing the show that we enjoy so much and allowing us to join in the fun.

Congratulations to MikeyBear, winner of the Survivor Samoa JSFL!

MikeyBear played a great first half and went into the final picks in the lead. He locked in the win by having picked Natalie as his USB before the season started and selecting the correct final four order. Kathy S gave him a run for the title. The difference between first and second place was just one point.

We will record the final Listener Feedback show for Survivor Samoa on Saturday, December 26th at 5pm PDT. We would love to hear your take on the finale, the reunion show and the season as a whole. Does Samoa make your top five list? What gets your vote for best moment of the season? Do you think there was anything Russell could have done to sway that jury in his favor? Do you think he's the best strategic player in the history of the game?

We have 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.

Samoa Episode 14

Brett's winning streak continues much to the frustration of the Foa Foa Four.Do you think voting out Shambo was really their best choice? Do you think Natalie will really stick with Russell to the end or will she follow her heart and switch alliances to Brett? Put yourself in the shoes of each of the remaining players. What would you say to win over the Galu heavy jury?

Many thanks to Larry and TJ for organizing the Survivor Samoa Viewing party tonight. We had a blast talking with Russell, Monica, Bob Dawg, Bruce, Boo, Coby, Christina, Jennifer and Rob Cesternino as well as April, Scott, Steve, Daniel, Big Mike and many other Survivor Super Fans. Jo Ann and I want to offer a special thanks to Christy and Mike K for staying late with us to record the recap show. That was the cherry on top to a great evening.

Here is the tribe after the fourteenth episode:
Aiga: Brett, Jaison, Mick, Natalie, Russell H
