Caramoan Episode 5

It appears that we were not done removing the toxic castaways from season 26. Last week the fans cleaned house. This week it was the Favs turn. The casting process failed us again this season and delivered another contestant that actually wanted to quit. Brandon was on a long downward spiral and to hear him describe it, it sounded like his violent outburst was planned for quite a while. What healthy, well adjusted adult does that? They may have gone through the motions of voting, but Brandon quit well before that happened. We hope he gets the help he needs, and that we never have to see him again on our favorite TV show.

Throwing a challenge has never ended well for the tribe and controlling alliance that takes the risk. What would you have done in their situation? How do you think it will affect the Favs going forward? Reynold found the OPII, again. Do you think he will be able to resist the urge to tell anyone besides Eddie? The Favs still have an overall numerical advantage. Who do you think will be impacted the most if there is a tribal shuffle?

Here are the tribes after episode 5.
Bikal:Andrea, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Malcolm and Phillip
Gota:Eddie, Julia, Matt, Michael, Reynold, and Sherri

Caramoan Episode 4 LF

There was definitely one thing we all agreed on. Regardless of how he left, it was good to see Shamar make his exit which also resulted in many of you voting karma as "Player of the Week". Reviews on Laura's departure were mixed. Many valued her for her strategic play, but the exit interviews left many wondering how much of that was favorable editing. We had some good back-n-forth on the classic strength versus loyalty question, and opinions for the season overall are still generally positive with much credit being given to the return of serious water challenges.

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. Nineteen fans shared their thoughts on episode 4 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: Alice, BostonMark, Trey, Samantha, Lil' Russ, Sandi, Jonathan, Brian, Kenny, Josh, DrewG, Carolyn, Aaron, BrandonB, KathyS, Barry, BrandonA, Mikeybear, and Paul.

SFP Interview: Castoff 2 from Episode 4 of Survivor Caramoan


This week we interviewed Laura Alexander. She left the game in episode 4 of Survivor Caramoan. At 110 pounds she did not appear threatening, but her strategic game kept everyone not in her alliance guessing. Unfortunately, her diminutive size finally caught up with her, and she was voted out for being a weak link.

Listen to this interview to hear extra details on the challenges, how paranoia affected her game, if she knew she was facing a unanimous vote out and lots more!

SFP Interview: Castoff 1 from Episode 4 of Survivor Caramoan


This week we interviewed Shamar Thomas. He left the game in episode 4 of Survivor Caramoan. Shamar will be remembered as one of the physically largest people to ever play the game, and as a great irritant to his tribe. He left the game for medical reasons, and was himself taken out of the game by a tiny irritant, a grain of sand.

Listen to this interview to hear an update on the extent of his injuries, how he felt about the things Reynold said about him, the missing scenes he wished they had shown and lots more!

Caramoan Episode 4

Episode four brought our first double elimination. The toxic tribemate problem in the fans tribe fixed itself, but at what cost? The fans are deep in the hole now. The favs would have to lose the next three Immunity challenges for them to go into the merge with even numbers. The future was looking very bleak for Reynold and Eddie, but now it appears that their fortunes have turned. Can the fans muster the focus to come back against a Favs tribe that appears to be firing on all cylinders in the challenges?

What do you think the future holds for Sherri, Julia, Matt and Michael? Do any of them stand a chance to make final four now? What would you choose: loyalty or physicality? Who do you think needs a tribal shuffle the most? Do you think the fans will have a better chance to win now? Who is your pick for the next one to be eliminated?

Here are the tribes after episode 4.
Bikal:Andrea, Brandon, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Malcolm and Phillip
Gota:Eddie, Julia, Matt, Michael, Reynold, and Sherri

Caramoan Episode 3 LF

Feedback on episode 3 was mixed. Some are enjoying it and for others the disappointing nature of Shamar's influence has cast a negative funk over the show. For those that enjoyed it, the highlights centered on Laura, Sherri, Corrine, Malcolm and Andrea's choices. The finding of the remaining OPII, pre-emptive attack on Corrine, handling of Shamar, and management of the votes provided ample topics for strategic speculation. It is not clear yet if the fans can save themselves from self destruction, but most of you seem to think their utter destruction is imminent.

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 three fans shared their thoughts on episode 3 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: Rhonda, Brian, Trey, Michelle, Sandi, Evil John, Lil' Russ, Carolyn, Clifton, Tyler, Samantha, James, Drew, Michael, Boston Mark, Jeremiah, Aaron, BrandonB, BrandonA, Jen, Josh, Paul, and Jody.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 3 of Survivor Caramoan


This week we interviewed Hope Driskill. She left the game in episode 3 of Survivor Caramoan. Hope chose a day one, minority alliance with smooth talker Eddie and the other "cool kids" with a plan to bring strong players together to win challenges. Unfortunately, she could not overcome her desire to vote out Shamar even when he was the one throwing her a lifeline at the end.

Listen to this interview to hear her thoughts on the other ladies in her tribe, who she thought was the secret weapon in her alliance, how she leveraged one tribemate's paranoia to try to save herself and lots more!

Caramoan Episode 3

Let it be noted, the alliance that many fans predicted between Corrine and Malcolm occurred on day 6. The only other person to find an idol with Malcolm won the game. Do you think history will repeat itself? Andrea is hard at work with plans to eliminate all her female competition. Meanwhile on the Fans tribe, Sherri is staying busy trying to manage and manipulate Shamar into not quitting. Luckily for her, she has "lots of experience dealing with snotty teen aged brats". She appeared to wrangle him around without even breaking a sweat.

How do you think the discovery of the OPII, Obviously Placed Immunity Idol, will affect the Malcolm and Corrine alliance? Is Corrine now next on the hit list in the Favs tribe? Who would you choose to keep on the Fans tribe, Reynold or Shamar? When is the right time to dump someone that only helps win challenges? How long could you tolerate someone that makes camp life miserable? What's your guess for when we should expect to see a tribe shuffle?

Here are the tribes after episode 3.
Bikal:Andrea, Brandon, Brenda, Cochran, Corinne, Dawn, Erik, Malcolm and Phillip
Gota:Eddie, Julia, Laura, Matt, Michael, Reynold, Shamar and Sherri

Caramoan Episode 2 LF

Another good episode bodes well for the season and had many of you weighing in with resounding support. The editors suggested with the music in the first episode that "crazy" was going to be a theme, and this episode continued to deliver on that front. There was lots of irrational bevavior and acting out that caught your attention. The overall consensus was that Dawn really stumbled in trying to engage Brandon, which also ended up in winning him some surprising support from the hardcore, strategic super fans. For the Gota tribe, Shamar was the stand out attention getter. Many of you highlighted Sherri's performance and most have no hope for Hope. No one appeared to lament the loss of Allie.

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 fans shared their thoughts on episode 2 and predictions for what we'll see next.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 2 of Survivor Caramoan


This week we interviewed Alexandra "Allie" Pohevitz. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Caramoan. Unfortunately, being a fan appears to be no insurance against falling prey to fatal, classic mistakes once the game begins. Allie appeared to commit some well known Survivor sins from day 1 which included backing a minority alliance and being party to some serious cuddle groping on the first night which signaled to others that she was already part of a potentially tight, dangerous alliance.

Listen to this interview to hear her description of each of her tribemates, who they thought had joined the alliance of four, why Reynold didn't use his HII to protect her and lots more!
