Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.
Tocantins Episode 5


Episode 5 brings us the solidification of the "awesome foursome inter-tribe alliance" and what may be its downfall all in one fell swoop. What was your take on Stephen's reasoning? Is he committed or will he cause it to unravel?

Who's more at risk: Taj or Brendan? When you hear these two words together "Charmin Cafe", does it conjure up a positive image? Do you think Ben is guaranteed to make the merge now? There is still no talk of a tribe shake up and no one ever mentions the mutiny option. Will the tribes stay the same until the merge? Do you think Jalapao can recover?

Here are the tribes after the fifth episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Sierra and Tyson

We are both thinking that Jalapao will turn it around and win the the next immunity challenge. Jo Ann is standing firm with Erinn as her choice for next to go. Stacy is sure that Ben will decide that Brendan is the new cancer in the tribe. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 6?

Tocantins Episode 4 LF


While many of us expressed our disappointment that Sandy won't be there now to make us laugh each week, there was also some great strategic discussion in this week's Listener Feedback. Many of you pondered the potential of the inter-tribe alliance and the possibility of seeing HIIs played in episode 5. There's some great speculation on each of the remaining players, and as usual, great love for ex-coach.

For each episode, we provide 3 podcasts: an episode recap, an interview with the castoff and a chance for Survivor fans like yourself to sound off on what you saw and how you think the castaways are fairing in the game. Twenty five fans who love to talk about Survivor came together this week to share their thoughts on episode 4 and as well as their predictions for what we'll see in the next episode.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to a great LF show. This week we heard from: John, Carolyn, Kathy, Shelley, Paul, Susan, Doug, Fancy, Darwin, David, Sandi, Taz, Mikeybear, Maria, Tammy, Tim, Samantha, Julie, Drew, Holly, Jeremiah, MikeK, Shane, Kimberly and Brian.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 4 Survivor Tocantins


This week we interviewed Sandy Burgin. She left the game in episode 4 of Survivor Tocantins. Sandy made us laugh more than anyone else this season, and we will certainly miss hearing from her each week.

Listen to this interview to find out what this Survivor fan did to her body that helped her land a spot on the show, her view of each of her tribemates, why the Jalapao tribe is always so grimy and much more!

Tocantins Episode 4


After episode 4, the tribes are even again. That makes it prime time for a  tribal shuffle.

What did you make of Timbira's "pow-wow" to select a leader? Taj had no problem bringing Stephen and Sierra into the "Secret Alliance". Do you think it stands a chance in the long run of the game? Will Erinn's emotional isolation do her in? Could her weakness end up playing a role in Ben's plan to control Timbira? Do you think Brendan is in danger?

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

Jo Ann thinks Timbira will vote out Erinn next. Stacy thinks they may choose to get rid of Sierra to send Brendan a message. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 4?

Tocantins Episode 3 LF


Episode 3 continued the blindside trend, but from the feedback, most of us thought we were the intended target instead of Jerry. Ben's antics are a major focus again this week as well as speculation on the potential of the inter-tribe alliance.

For each episode, we provide 3 podcasts: an episode recap, an interview with the castoff and a chance for Survivor fans like yourself to sound off on what you saw and how you think the castaways are fairing in the game. Twenty nine fans who love to talk about Survivor took time out of their busy schedules to share their thoughts on episode 3 and as well as their predictions for what we'll see in the next episode.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to a great LF show. This week we heard from: Windy-TyGuy-Erica, Chris, Shelley, John, Drew T, Becca, Jeff, Tim, Maria, Susan, Julie, Paul, Christy, Marina, Ian, Fancy, Mikeybear, Carolyn, Doug, Damien, Drew G, Holly, Jeannie, Taz, Samantha, Shane, Graham, Mike K and Kimberly.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 3 Survivor Tocantins


This week we interviewed Jerry Simms. He left the game in episode 3 of Survivor Tocantins. A lot of us had high hopes for Jerry, but an unfortunate illness ended his Survivor experience before we ever really got to see him play.

Listen to this interview to hear his thoughts on each of his tribemates, how he was chosen for the show, why Brendan said he chose Taj to join him on Exile and much more!

Tocantins Episode 3


With episode 3, we transition from one combo challenge per episode to separate reward and immunity challenges providing two opportunities for each player to convince their tribe that they can't live without them or make the choice for who to vote for at tribal council much easier.

Erinn appeared to catch another break this week, but what did you think of her willingness to criticize her tribe again at Tribal Council? Did we get a glimpse of the final four this week: Taj, Brendan, Stephen and Sierra? Is Tyson playing Ben or is he really ok with being his assistant coach? Do you think Taj found the HII too? Would you hide the HII like Brendan did or keep it on you or with your stuff at all times?

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

We both think that Timbira is going to continue their losing streak until they get rid of Ben. Unfortunately, we believe they will wait to do that and choose to vote out Erinn next. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 4?

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 2 Survivor Tocantins


This week we interviewed Candace Smith. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Tocantins. She had a lot to say, and the sparks really flew when we asked her to assess her fellow tribemates.

Listen to this interview to hear her sing the praises of two of her Timbira tribemates and dish the dirt on the rest, find out why they arrived so late to camp that first day and the real story behind the shelter that Sierra built.

Note: We apologize for the quality of the audio. There was a problem with static on the line that we were unable to correct.

Tocantins Episode 2

Oh yeah! The challenge in episode 2 was everything we hoped for.

Both tribes provided some fierce gameplay that may result in some lasting resentments. Would you go all out and punish the other tribe in an attempt to win or try to do just enough to get by?

Sandy dodged another bullet, but Sierra seemed at times like she was trying to make it easy to vote her out? Were you surprised and blindsided at Tribal council too? Can you tell who's leading Timbira now based on how the votes played out? How do you think Taj's famous husband will affect her standing in the game?

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

Stacy thinks the balance will shift back in Timbira's favor next week and expects that Taj may end up paying the price for sharing the details on her famous husband. Jo Ann thinks they'll take the easy route and eliminate Sandy. Who do you think will be voted out next?
