SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 1 of Survivor Blood vs. Water


This week we interviewed Rupert Boneham. He left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Blood vs. Water. Rupert fans were surely sad to see him be the first to leave the island. In the past, Redemption Island was viewed as an attempt to keep returning players on the screen as long as possible, but this season's "swap" twist combined with his reputation as a four time player basically ensured that Rupert would be on the chopping block early.

Listen to this interview to hear how he and Laura prepared, his thoughts on returning players, why he cast that first vote for Laura Morett and lots more!

Blood vs. Water Episode 2

Survivor is known for being a game that shines a light on who you really are, deep down at your core. This week, Colton's redemption story appears to have officially come to an end. He made it four days before he fell back into his old ways. The trend so far is for the returning players to score a come from behind win at the Immunity challenge. It may be unlikely for that trend to change unless we get a challenge that is primarily based on brute strength alone.

What did you think about Colton's attempt to take control of Galang? Do you think he will quit? Did the Tadhana five make the best choice to target Rachel? Do you think Tyson will take the bait and step in to rescue her? Did John make the right choice to not share the HII clue? Were you sad to see Rupert go? Who will be the next to leave the game?

Here are the tribes after episode 2.
Galang:Aras, Colton, Gervase, Kat, LauraB, LauraM, Monica, Tina and Tyson
Tadhana:Brad, Caleb, Ciera, Hayden, John, Katie and Vytas
Redemption Island:Candice, Marissa, and Rachel

Blood vs. Water Episode 1 LF

The verdict is still out for some of us on how the season is shaping up, but the majority of feedback this week was positive. Now it is time to see how you did with your JABBIC predictions and weigh in on what you think of the cast now that we finally got to see them in action. The power male alliance led by the math challenged NFL player/lawyer caught everyone's attention. Colton did not make any believers out of this group. Gervase seems to have uniformly disappointed. Few were sad to see Rupert and Candice head to RI, but the addition of Marissa was a disappointment to most of us.

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. Sixteen fans shared their thoughts on episode 1 and predictions for what we'll see next.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Sandi, Trey, Samantha, Nicola, Ronda, Aaron, Nicki, Drew, Michael, Rashmi, BrandonA, Jeremiah, Josh, Jen, Mikeybear, and Paul.

Blood vs. Water Episode 1

Survivor's back for it's 27th season. The whole 0.5 day twist turned out to be a bit of a dud and basically just a vehicle for introducing the cast. We were happy to get 90 minutes to kick things off again though! There was no frantic searching for HIIs, just solid camp life and some extra insight into Ciera, Vytas and Colton's past. The returning players from Galang did great, but their loved ones really seemed to struggle with the basics.

What did you think about how the returning players and new, family members did? Who surprised you the most? Did your impressions of anyone change after you got to see them in action in this first episode? Are you buying Colton's redemption story? Did Tadhana make the best choice at Tribal Council? Who do you think will be the first to exit the game from Redemption Island?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Galang:Aras, Colton, Gervase, Kat, LauraB, LauraM, Monica, Tina and Tyson
Tadhana:Brad, Caleb, Ciera, Hayden, John, Katie, Rachel and Vytas
Redemption Island:Candice, Marissa, and Rupert

Blood vs. Water JABBIC Part 2

It's only five days till the first episode of Survivor Blood vs. Water airs. It can be challenging to recognize the new castaways at the beginning of the season, but we've got an answer for that to enhance your Survivor viewing experience. It's called the JABBIC, "Judge A Book By Its Cover", shows. We get started before the first episode airs and record our early thoughts on this new group of castaways as well as the returning "Favorites, Misfits, and Drama Magnets". Through this process, we find that at least a few of them will stand out from the beginning and it greatly improves the odds of recognizing your early favorites.

This is Part 2 of our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show. Sixteen fans, like you, recorded their perspective on the new cast including their choice of favorites, who's most likely to get voted out first, make the merge, have a shot at the final tribal council as well as who has what it takes to win it all.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great JABBIC show. This week we heard from: Alice, Clifton, Sandi, BrandonB, Samantha, Aaron, Kathy, Drew, Trey, MikeK, BrandonA, Mikeybear, Jeremiah, Rashmi, Jen and Paul.

JSFL registration is open! If you would like to join in the fun, click on this link: JSFL Registration and get your picks in before the first episode airs. You'll have to decide who you think will win it all, who will be voted out from the first tribal council, and four castaways that will be safe from the tribal council vote. Reminder: you have to listen to the podcast to hear the Listener Reward Bonus questions.

It is time to take a final look back at Survivor Caramoan. Most of us were satisfied with the finale. Your thoughts on the reunion show were very clear. It was a colossal flop. We all hope we never see that again. Pretty much everyone is happy for Cochran. The verdict on Dawn remains very split. Her gameplay this season was polarizing in a way we had not seen in a long time. One noble fan came to Sherri's defense. The teaser for season 27 was just plain vague, but we hold out hope that it will be awesome!

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. Thirty two fans shared their thoughts on the finale, the overall season, and guesses for what season 27 might bring.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to the final Listener Feedback show of the season. We heard from: BrandonJ, EMP, Ronda, Nicki, Samantha, BrandonB, Casey, Christy, Mario, Schadenfreude, Steve, Johnny, Kenny, Shelley, James, Sean, Josh, DrewG, Lil' Russ, Aaron, Ed, Michael, Tim, Tim, Mikeybear, Jeremiah, Rashmi, BrandonA, Becca, Krista, Brian, and Paul

Congratulations to our JSFL winners: Trey and Ryan!
