Somewhat miraculously, ok with a significant assist from Fishbach, Angkor managed to avoid another Tribal Council. The editors continued to enforce the theme of the perils of playing an "old school" game in this "new school" season that rewards those willing to change with, you guessed it, a "Second Chance". New Bayon demonstrated their loyalty by sacking one of their original members given the first opportunity.

How did you feel about the blindside? Did you see enough to make it seem justified? Will it work for or against the remaining new-Bayon members? What do you think about Spencer's redemption story? Will Angkor be able to survive another immunity challenge? How did you interpret Woo's story about his mother? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 5.
New Ta Keo:Ciera, Joe, Kass, Keith, KWent, and Terry
New Bayon:Jeremy, KWig, Kimmi, Spencer, and Stephen
Angkor:Abi, Savage, Woo and Tasha

This week we interviewed Jeff Varner. He left the game in episode 4 of Survivor Cambodia. Varner gave this season an amazing start with tons of laughs, great strategic play, and one of the best narrators of the action that the game has ever had. He was entertaining, fun to cheer for, and we will miss his contribution to this season immensely.

Listen to this interview to hear an update on his injury, who he thinks is being portrayed unrealistically, what he wishes had been shown and more!

We got to see the fable of the Scorpion and the Frog play out again on Survivor. The frog is concerned about being stung, but agrees to carry the scorpion across the river after getting assurances. When the scorpion stings the frog halfway across and they both begin to drown, the frog asks, "why"? The scorpion replies, "it's in my nature". Can you guess who is this season's scorpion and this episode's frog? How many more will she sting before this season is over?

What did you think of the Hero's challenge? Did Savage redeem himself from his Pearl Islands shame? Did Angkor make the right choice? Will a new majority alliance form to take out the original Bayon ten? Can Abi survive another episode? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the new tribes after episodes 4.
New Ta Keo:Ciera, Joe, Kass, Keith, KWent, and Terry
New Bayon:Jeremy, KWig, Kimmi, Monica, Spencer, and Stephen
Angkor:Abi, Savage, Woo and Tasha

Improvise, adapt and overcome is a core mantra for any successful castaway. The split to three tribes really challenged the six members of the new Angkor tribe and it prompted lots of discussion in this week's show. While we all know the show does not play fair, the extent of the imbalance seemed way out of whack for some fans. Most of us agree that it was fun to watch how well Tasha excelled, while some of us were surprised how quickly and completely Varner spun out of control, only to grab a safety line at the last minute. We are all anxious for what episode four will bring.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Charlotte, Pete, FD, Shannon-n-Jessica, Meredith, Jill, Rashmi, Samantha, Nicola, Kevin, Donald, BrandonA, Sophia, Drew, BostonMark, Sarah, Marla, Victoria, Kenny, Josh, Taz, JK, ColdMike, James, Aaron, Shannon, Carolyn, Jeremiah, and Paul.

This week we interviewed Peih-Gee Law. She left the game in episode 3 of Survivor Cambodia. Peih-Gee's luck went from bad to worse. She was unfortunate enough to start on a tribe with Abi-Maria which triggered conflict right out of the gate. She took a turn for the worse when she was shuffled onto a tribe with no resources, her primary alliance fell apart, was still stuck with Abi, and eventually became her second victim.

Listen to this interview to hear behind the scenes details at Angkor beach, more about Varner's meltdown at the challenge, what she wishes had been shown and more!

Drop your buffs and hope for the best because many elements of Survivor come down to the pure luck of the draw. If it goes your way, you might end up on a tribe like new Ta Keo that will likely dominate the challenges and may never go to Tribal Council. If you end up on a tribe like Angkor, at a beach with no resources, about the most you can count on is having a good story to tell if you make it out alive and still in the game before the merge. How do you feel about the new tribes?

Who gained the most from the shuffle? Do you think Jeremy will keep the HII to himself? Will Varner be able to recover? How far do you think Abi will make it in the game now? Will the original alliances survive the shuffle? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the new tribes after episodes 3.
New Ta Keo:Ciera, Joe, Kass, Keith, KWent, and Terry
New Bayon:Jeremy, KWig, Kimmi, Monica, Spencer, and Stephen
Angkor:Abi, Savage, Varner, Woo and Tasha

This week we interviewed Shirin Oskooi. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Cambodia. Life has a way of testing us and sometimes does it by flipping the script. One minute you're celebrating your victory by controlling the first blindside, and then you're following your target right out the door. Abi turned out to be a big test for Shirin, one that she unfortunately was not prepared for.

Listen to this interview to hear how she felt about being selected by the fans, how she felt about Probst comparing her experience to Abi's, an update on the tribe's injuries and more!

They are classic Survivor sins: overconfidence which leads to a false sense of comfort. Anytime a castaway becomes convinced that they are "calling the shots", safe and in control, you can almost guarantee that they are not long for the game. The editors are really emphasizing the "no change equals no chance" theme. Shirin and Spencer both get called out for making the same mistakes as their first season and they are immediately on the chopping block. Likewise with Stephen Fishbach. They have all been portrayed as cold hearted gamebots that haven't adapted and thus are at risk to leave the game early. Will the shuffle help or hurt Fishbach and Spencer?

How did you feel about Shirin's lack of support for Abi? Was Abi right to take some gleeful revenge? Were you surprised by Woo's response to Shirin and Spencer's pleas? How did you view Savage's speech about his wife? What did you think of his description of Fishbach? Who would you have kept: Shirin or Spencer? How do you think the shuffle to 3 tribes will impact the game? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 2.
Ta Keo:Abi-Maria, Jeff, KWent, KWig, Peih-Gee, Spencer, Terry, and Woo
Bayon:Savage, Ciera, Jeremy, Joe, Kass, Keith, Kimmi, Monica, Stephen, and Tasha
