 SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 1 Survivor Tocantins


This week we interviewed Carolina Eastwood. She left the game in episode 1 of Survivor Tocantins. She might have only spent a short time with the Jalapao tribe, but she had some great stories to share.

Listen to this interview to learn more about her tribe, who emerged as a leader, find out who accused her of stealing, along with what she thought went wrong in the first immunity challenge and lots more!

Tocantins Episode 1

It's great to have Survivor back, and Brazil in HD is magnificent.

We certainly ended up changing our first impressions of several of the new castaways during this first episode.

What do you think Sandy's chances are after getting to see how she handled herself in the first episode? Do you think Sierra made any progress in changing Timbira's minds? What about Ben? How do you think he will fare when his tribe has to go to Tribal Council the first time? How did your first impressions change?

Here are tribes after the first episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Candace, Debra, Erinn, Jerry, Sierra and Tyson

Here's the clip from Next Time on Survivor that made Stacy laugh so much. Check out Sandy's rodeo skills! This challenge in episode 2 is going to be a awesome!
Sandy at the challenge rodeo

We're both guessing that Timbira well get a turn at Tribal Council next. Jo Ann thinks Erinn will be the next to be voted out. Stacy thinks Ben will rapidly follow in Carolina's footsteps. 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.

We're hoping to hear from Russ Landua soon about when the soundtrack for Survivor 18 will be available. Until then, we chose a couple tunes from Survivor Borneo to get things started.

Tocantins JABBIC Part I

The producers of Surivor have orchestrated this season to emphasize first impressions which coincides with a tradition here at the Survivor Fans Podcast.

This is Part I of our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show. We've recorded our perspective on each new castaway including how well we think they'll do in the overall game as well as some extra details revealed in the TV Guide preview.

Now it is your turn. We want to hear what you think about the 16 new contestants for Survivor Tocantins.
Study the pictures at cbs.com, read their bios, watch the videos and let us know how well you think they will do this season. We want to hear about who you had the strongest reaction to. Don't think too long about it, just go with your "first impression".

Here are tribes before the first episode:
Jalapao: Carolina, Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Candace, Debra, Erinn, Jerry, Sierra and Tyson

Who's your pick for the two will that get the boot before the tribes start the four trip to camp and the first one voted out?
Go out on a limb, and tell us who you think will win it all.
Which ones do you think will make the merge and who just doesn't stand a chance?

Send your impressions to us by 5pm PST on Thursday, February 5th, and we'll include them in Part II of the JABBIC show for everyone to hear.

We've got several ways you can share your thoughts about the new castaways with everyone. 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.

Time's running out for JSFL registration. We're going to have to close it early this season. We've already received more requests to join than we had last year. If you're interested in participating in the JSFL, our own, private Survivor fantasy league, send an email to jsfl.admin@gmail.com to let us know, and we'll add you to the roster and send you additional instructions if there's still an available slot open. The prize this season will be similar to last season, e.g. a Survivor t-shirt or buff. Not sure what the JSFL is? Check out the links section below for the rules we will be using and the results from last season.

Russ Landau granted us permission to feature his music on the show. The well loved version of the Ancient Voices tune is from the Survivor Gabon soundtrack which is available on iTunes
