Calling all Survivor Fans!
The time has arrived to kickoff the 18th season of Survivor. This marks our 9th season of podcasting about Survivor, what we refer to as one of our life's simple pleasures. Basically, we enjoy watching Survivor and talking about it with our friends, and we begin each season with our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show.
We want to hear what you think about the 16 new contestants for Survivor Tocantins.
Study the pictures at cbs.com, read their bios, watch the videos and let us know how well you think they will do this season. We want to hear about who you had the strongest reaction to. Don't think too long about it, just go with your "first impression".
Here are tribes before the first episode:
Jalapao: Carolina, Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Candace, Debra, Erinn, Jerry, Sierra and Tyson
Who's your pick for the first one voted out?
Go out on a limb, and tell us who you think will win it all.
Which ones do you think will make the merge and who just doesn't stand a chance?
Send your impressions to us by 5pm PST on Thursday, February 5th, and we'll include them in the show for everyone to hear.
We've got several ways you can share your thoughts about the new castaways with everyone. You can call and leave a voicemail at: 206-350-1547. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Lastly, there's a link for comments on the web page here. You can click that link and post your thoughts out there for everyone to see.
If you're interested in participating in the JSFL, our own, private Survivor fantasy league, send an email to email@example.com to let us know, and we'll add you to the roster and send you additional instructions. The prize this season will be similar to last season, e.g. a Survivor t-shirt or buff. Not sure what the JSFL is? Check out the links section below for the rules we will be using and the results from last season.
Russ Landau granted us permission to feature his music on the
show. The well loved version of the Ancient Voices tune is from the
Survivor Gabon soundtrack which is available on iTunes
