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

Welcome to Part 1 of our JABBIC show for season 37, Survivor David vs. Goliath. JABBIC stands for Judge A Book By Its Cover, and that is exactly what we do in the preseason. We do not get a lot of information to work with, but that doesn't stop us from trying to guess who will be good at the game and who will flop. We have shared our early thoughts on each of the castaways including how well we think they will do in the overall game as well as some details we gathered from the interviews to kick off another season of watching Survivor together.

Now it is your turn. We want to hear what you think about the 20 new castaways that we look forward to entertaining and surprising us for the next 3 months. Let us know how well you think they will or won't do this season. We want to hear about who you had the strongest reaction to. Who's going to be voted out first? Who's your pick for final four and the sole Survivor?

Send in your predictions, keep it to 3 minutes. Get your responses to us by noon PST on Saturday, September 22nd. Try not to think too long about it, just go with your first impression. Check out Paul's Visual Roster to help you collect your thoughts.

JSFL, our Survivor Fantasy League, 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 first, and four castaways that will be safe from the first tribal council. Reminder: you have to listen to the podcast to hear the Listener Reward Bonus questions.

We have reached the end again. Today, we gather one last time to share our final impressions and thoughts on season 36, Survivor Ghost Island. Much like last season, the finale got mixed reviews. It basically boiled down to who you were cheering for: Dom or Wendell. The overall season got mixed reviews too. Overall though, we once again had a great time together and found lots to enjoy and discuss each week. We will be on hiatus until September when we return for the season 37 JABBIC, Judge A Book By Its Cover, episodes.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Pete, KimJ, Ian, Sophie, Taz, Christiana, Parker, Ann-n-John, Mike, JaWaffles, Marla-n-Sarah, Julie, Drew, Kim-n-Cameron, Josh, David, Ronda, Boston Mark, Samantha, Slappy McGee, Ed, BrandonA, Jill, Scott, Jeremiah, Jen, Snowy, and Paul.

This season really needed something to help redeem the mediocre second half. The finale included another first in Survivor history, and one of the best bluffs we have ever seen at a Tribal Council. The pacing was rapid with back to back to back Immunity Challenges and stole a half hour from the Reunion show to finish out the season. But would it be enough?

What did you think of the challenges? Who's gameplay impressed you the most? Were you happy with the end result? What did you think of the shortened Reunion show? What's your take on the season as a whole? Where does it rank against the other 35? What's your first impression of season 37, David vs. Goliath?

Congratulations to our JSFL Winners, Ian and Nans who tied with 132 points!


The JSFL side challenger's scores are: Jeremiah won with 126 points. JKindred: 114, Jonathan: 113, ColdMike: 95, KittyCat: 93, James-n-Shannon: 90, Stacy: 88, BrandonA: 76, Parker: 61, and Randy 52. Jeremiah will pick a song for Randy to write a parody based on this season's events and sing for us.

Just as the super fans predicted last week, the penultimate episode delivered another "lackluster" performance from Laurel and Donathan who only managed to conjure up more "veiled" threats, squandered any remaining "win equity" they had mustered at the merge, and watched the last of their "social capital" circle the drain. All hope is not lost though. We are looking forward to a few more surprises in the finale!

"Trusting your gut" does not amount to much if you have not laid the foundation with a solid social game. Challenges that result in clear "pecking order" events should be part of every episode after the merge. What did you think of Sebastian's remora speech? Can you see a clear way for Lauren to "split votes and cut throats"? Did Donathan shoot himself in the foot, or is their redemption on the horizon?

Who's going to end up in the fire making challenge at final four? Who impressed you the most this week? Who are you cheering for to win?

Here is the merge tribe as we head into the finale.
Lavita:Angela, Domenick, Donathan, Laurel, Sebastian and Wendell

Based on the majority of the feedback, this will be the point in the game that we look back on as Laurel and Donathan's big, missed opportunity. We remain hopeful going into the penultimate episode, but at this point it looks like at least two out of the final three are a forgone conclusion. We would love to get a big surprise just before the finale though.

Naviti Strong no more? Could it be? In any case, they took out a challenge beast tonight which might give some new players a chance to win Individual Immunity going forward. What would you do if you were in Laurel's shoes? Which alliance would you choose? What did you think of Domenick's vow to Aunt Patty?

Who's your favorite? Who do you think is playing the best overall game? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the current merge tribe.

We just knew it was going to happen eventually. That day his fans had dreaded finally arrived. It's time to "pour one out" for one of this season's hands down favorites, a young man that earned respect as a super fan and a smart Survivor player that some of us initially, grossly underestimated. The end result may have felt predictable, but many of us enjoyed this episode's twist and turns. We are also looking forward to the family visit and seeing how that impacts the game.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Pete, Mike, Slappy, Shea, Christiana, Rashmi, Parker, Jack, Drew, Kim-n-Cameron, Sophie, Rodney, Jill, Josh, Jen, and Paul.

It would be easy to call the result from this week's episode predictable, but the path we took to get there was anything but that. Who knew they could pack so much uncertainty into two tribal councils? Is it a given that Naviti strong will win this season now? Whose family member are you most looking forward to meeting in the next episode?

Who is the most underestimated player still in the game? When is the right time to move on the core Naviti three? Who's your favorite? Who do you think is playing the best overall game? Who impressed you the most this week? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the current merge tribe.

Michael caught another lucky break and the fans are thrilled. Response this week made it clear that we are excited that "Naviti Strong" took its first big steps at unraveling as Laurel's plan came to fruition. We are all curious as to what that means for Kellyn given how adamant she was for Michael to go again. On the whole, feedback on the season remains extremely positive. Now bring on the double immunity, double elimination, double Tribal Council episode. We can't wait!
