Survivor Fans Podcast
Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

 

The verdict is in. The fans have spoken. The first episode of season 31 was a hit. From the scenery, to the baby monkeys, exciting old-school challenges, new gameplay twists, and an exciting blindside at tribal council, this season is off to a great start. We are excited and can't wait to see what happens next. P.S. CBS, every episode should be 90 minutes.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Barbara, Charlotte, KathyS, Pete, Sophia, Ronda, Emily&Scout, Sarah, Marla, Meredith, Kevin, Nicola, Kenny, Liam&Becca, Rashmi, Samantha, Drew, James, Aaron, Ann, Victoria, Carolyn, Sandi, Josh, Taz, Mikeybear, Boston Mark, ColdMike, Jen, BrandonB, MikeK, and Paul.

This week we interviewed Vytas Baskauskas. He left the game in episode 1 of Survivor Cambodia. Someone had to be first, but we definitley didn't expect it to be Vytas. His attempts to be more social appeared to backfire and drew the attention of the women who saw it as over the top and excessive. Hence, he became this season's first big blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear how he prepared for his second chance, details on a significant injury we didn't get to see, a review of his tribemates and more!

Survivor season 31, Cambodia: Second Chance, is off to an exciting start! They managed to squeeze in a little something from all 20 castaways. It was encouraging to see no one got the classic "Purple Kelly" quiet treatment. Some are playing smart, a select few, not so much having fallen back into old habits. We even got two big surprises: "immediate" Tribal Council and our first blindside.

How did your assessments of the new castaways change once you saw them in action? What did you think about the placement of the HII in the challenge? Who do you think is in control of each tribe? Who would you have kept: Abi or Vytas? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 1.
Ta Keo:Abi-Maria, Jeff, KWent, KWig, Peih-Gee, Shirin, Spencer, Terry, and Woo
Bayon:Savage, Ciera, Jeremy, Joe, Kass, Keith, Kimmi, Monica, Stephen, and Tasha

The "goat rodeo" was cancelled, and the ending brought a satisfying conclusion to a season that seemed at great risk only a couple weeks ago. This season got off to a good start, then there were certainly some rough spots in the middle that tested our resolve. Mike's "back against the wall", "come from behind", "against all odds" win, mixed in with some clever strategy right at the end made for an exciting conclusion that had many of us out of our seats and cheering each time he edged closer to the final tribal council. Thanks to everyone that contributed and made this season more insightful and enjoyable. You are an amazing community!

Congratulations to Craig in Florida for winning JSFL this Season with 122 points! Even though he didn’t get the final 5 order correct, he did choose Mike as his USB24, which gave him the lead... Great job Craig.

Congratulations to ColdMike for winning the high risk side challenge with a total of 103 points. Way to hang in there Mike. Nina finished with 85, Jeremiah with 84, Brandon A with 83, Jody with 77, Stacy with 63, James with 61, Jonathan with 59, Iron Dave with 50, and Aaron R. with 43. ColdMike has requested that Aaron perform a parody version of Sam Smith's "I'm Not the Only One" with lyrics focused on events from this season to pay his debt for coming in last.

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 the finale, reunion show as well as the cast of the next season.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great show. This week we heard from: Barbara, MJ, Sarah and Marla, Emily, Ed, Jim, Samantha, Thomas, Drew, Maria, ColdMike, Rashmi, Ronda, Saundra, Jody, Alar, BrandonB, Jen, Josh, Jeremiah, James, and Paul.

We'll be back in September with our two part, pre-season prognostication for season 31, Survivor Cambodia.

This week we interviewed Mike Holloway, winner of Survivor Worlds Apart. . Mike started off strong on a winning tribe, but his social game was lacking and he eventually found himself on the outside with no one to turn to for help. With his back against the wall, he won immunity after immunity challenge, played hidden idols and forced the majority alliance to tear themselves apart as he plowed his way to the end. It was epic to watch and against all odds he emerged victorious!

Listen to this interview to hear about where he struggled the most during the final tribal council, how his mother showed him another way to think about the game and his competitors during the family visit, why he was sure he had won after the votes were cast and more!

This week we interviewed Carolyn Rivera and Will Sims II. They tied for second place during the finale of Survivor Worlds Apart. Carolyn was lethal. Whenever she sensed a threat to her survival, she disposed of them with surgical accuracy. She also proved that age does not have to be a factor for physical challenges by winning individual immunity multiple times along with several rewards. Will's performance in challenges was underwhelming, but he did possess a knack for securing a spot in the majority alliances. Unfortunately, he will likely be most remembered for an ugly event that took place between him and Shirin.

Listen to this interview to hear about the hardest final tribal council questions they faced, what really made that last immunity challenge super hard to complete, behind the scene details on the tie breaker fire maker challenge and more!

This week we interviewed Sierra Dawn Thomas and Rodney Lavoie Jr. They left the game in fifth and fourth place during the finale of Survivor Worlds Apart. Sierra teased us with the possibility of making big moves to better her position in the game many times, only to take the road most traveled by again and again, eventually fading into the background. Rodney's sense of entitlement and constant demands to be recognized and valued ensured that the spotlight was frequently on him. He indeed made one of the most strategically significant moves of the season, but was undone because he was not a fan and never learned one of the most basic principles of the game.

Listen to this interview to hear extra details about the final tribal council, how they felt about their edit, about being called out for being bitter by Jen and more!

Three cheers for the underdog! What an amazing story, against all odds, from pariah to sole survivor. This season stood out for having so many fans in the game. We learned quickly though that not all fans are created equal, and some of them struggle with basic, self awareness skills. Unfortunately, this season also brought with it some uncomfortable moments courtesy of some really mean, ugly exchanges between the castaways. So, it was really nice to see it end on such a high note with a great redemption angle.

What did you think of the final challenges? How important was the family visit? How did the final three do with answering the questions? Who in the jury asked the best and worst questions? What did you think of the reunion show? Did Shirin get closure? Where does this season rank for you amongst the other 29? Who are you most looking forward to see play from the new cast in season 31?

We're having technical difficulties with the voicemail line. 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. Listener Feedback is due by Saturday Noon PST. Please keep it to 3 minutes or less.
