Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

 

Survivor season 30, Worlds Apart, is off to a great start! We got to hear from all the castaways. Some are playing smart, a select few, not so much. Super fan Dan was completely oblivious to how he was being perceived by others, and committing a well known Survivor sin: don't start the game by arguing with and alienating your tribe. Vince came out the gate acting nothing like a life coach and managed to give off a creepy, stalker vibe with Jenn. Will promised his tribe sandwiches. Go figure. Carolyn, who many thought might be first out, demonstrated a great awareness of the game and a good judge of character. It was great to get a blindside right out of the gate. It was a nice twist to see a tribe choose to keep an older female so early in the game. This season is already delivering surprises.

How did your assessments of the new castaways change once you saw them in action? What did you think about the twist of having two people choose between Honesty and Deception? Who do you think is in control of each tribe? Who would you have kept: So or Carolyn? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episodes 1.
Escameca/Blue Collar:Dan, Kelly, Lindsey, Mike, Rodney, Sierra
Nagarote/No Collar:Hali, Jenn, Joe, Nina, Vince, Will
Masaya/White Collar:Carolyn, Joaquin, Max, Shirin, Tyler

Please keep it to 3 minutes or less.

We are only a few days away from the premiere of season 30, Survivor Worlds Apart. It can be challenging to recognize the new castaways at the beginning of the season, but we've got a solution for that to enhance your Survivor viewing experience. It's called the JABBIC, "Judge A Book By Its Cover", shows. We get started before the first episode airs and record our early thoughts on this new group of castaways. Through this process, we identify a few of them we think will stand out from the beginning, and it greatly improves the odds of recognizing your early favorites.

This is Part 2 of our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show. Fourteen fans, like you, recorded their perspective on the new cast including their choice of favorites, who's most likely to get voted out first, make the merge, have a shot at the final tribal council as well as who has what it takes to win it all.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great JABBIC show. This week we heard from: Barbara, Jen, BrandonB, Ronda, Samantha, Frank, Drew, BrandonA, Rashmi, Sandi, Jeremiah, Josh, Jody and Paul. Carolyn was so happy for Natalie's win that she created a song to celebrate it. Make sure to check out the outro song she recorded for us all to enjoy!

JSFL 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've got several ways you can reach us. 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 joannandstacyshow@gmail.com.

All About that Rice
Because you know it’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
"It’s all about that rice." "We know, Jeff!"

Loud and shrill and pushy,
Such sexist labels
Guys are just "assertive",
Girls are "unstable".
But we just can’t say no to CBS
Although this Race stays in just this one place, yawn

I hear your mutterings
That I’m annoy-oying,
But, unlike that Missy,
I’m never cloy-oying!
Get in the back seat, let me drive you
To your palace back in Dallas, time to find a husband new!

Soy La Reina de la Playa, the Queen of Hunahpu Beach,
‘Til I found out my sis had been booted, our game impeached
But I dried off my tears, did my Crossfit, and made no fuss
Now they’re toasting my win from Colombo to Pa-ra-mus!

Because you know it’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice-

Subcontinental cool,
Don’t you wish that you were all Sri Lankan too?
Go Brownie power!
Miss America--ya got nothing, Jacklyn,
Take your grand plan back to Michigan,
I’m famouser than you!

I outlasted the Wentworths, the Nale males, and both Christys,
I outwitted that racist John and quitter Boobs McGee
I outplayed Josh and Reed, used my idol despite Baylor’s pleas,
And took out Other Jon in revenge for my Jeremy!

Because you know it’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice, no Twinnie
It’s all about that rice, ‘bout that rice-

Because you know it’s all about that win, ‘bout that win, go Twinnie
It’s all about that win, ‘bout that win, go Twinnie
It’s all about that win, ‘bout that win, go Twinnie
It’s all about that win, ‘bout that win-

Soy La Reina de la Playa, the Queen of Hunahpu Beach,
‘Til I found out my sis had been booted, our game impeached
But I dried off my tears, did my Crossfit, and made no fuss
Now they’re toasting my win from Colombo to Pa-ra-mus!


**********
Colombo is the capitol of Sri Lanka and Paramus is a big mall-infested city in New Jersey that, like so many others there, is a funny name to say. The girls actually live in Edgewater, which is nice but not particularly funny and doesn't rhyme with anything.

Today we interviewed Jaclyn Schultz. She finished Survivor San Juan Del Sur in second place. Jaclyn was mostly invisible for the first part of the game. She came to life when she reunited with her boyfriend Jon at the tribal shuffle and then helped plan their ascent into the controlling alliance. She often demonstrated good instincts for potential threats but seemed to lack the confidence to act on them. She will be most remembered for her surprising performance at the final challenge.

Listen to this interview to hear why at one point she had considered dropping out at final five, an update on the injury from that final challenge, why she took Natalie over Keith and more!

Today we interviewed Natalie Anderson, winner of Survivor San Juan Del Sur. Watching her execute the plan to take revenge on Jon was a thing of beauty. She made smart strategic moves, was a beast in challenges, and had a great social game to boot.

Listen to this interview to hear about the injury that threatened to take her out of the game, how she felt about Baylor's blindside, details on the final tribal council we didn't get to see and more!

Today we interviewed Missy Payne. She finished Survivor San Juan Del Sur in third place. Missy kept her tribe well fed, extremely well fed. She will also be remembered for her intense defense of any perceived slight to her daughter as well as helping run the controlling alliance after the merge. She was perceptive, pragmatic, physically tough, and ran her alliance with an iron fist.

Listen to this interview to hear the diagnosis on her injured foot, the most difficult question she faced, how she felt after Reed said he was referring only to her game persona and more!

Today we interviewed Keith Nale. He finished Survivor San Juan Del Sur in fourth place. Keith provided much of this season's comic relief. He tried hard but most of his attempts at strategy ended with disastrous results. He'll be remembered for his multiple, impressive immunity wins and for getting his son voted out of the game by blurting out "stick to the plan" at a pivotal tribal council.

Listen to this interview to hear what he wishes they had not shown, what the guys at the firehouse had to say about his spa adventure, why he voted for Natalie and more!

Today we interviewed Baylor Wilson. She finished Survivor San Juan Del Sur in fifth place. Baylor was a candidate to be voted out of the game from the very beginning. There were more votes cast against her during the season than any other castaway. She managed to hang on until she could reunite with her mom who promptly tucked her under her wing and carried her all the way to day 37 where Natalie snatched the dream of final three out from under her with the season's final blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear how she was chosen for the show, what she wishes we had seen, her thoughts on Reed's speech and more!

This season started off slow and it was hard for many of us to find someone to cheer for, but that all changed after the merge. We saw some great battles between actual strategists and one person in particular emerged as a real superstar in the game. We experienced some great blindsides, witnessed the return of the water challenges in Nicaragua, and were pleased with the finale and the felt like the most deserving person was crowned the sole survivor.

What did you think about the final challenges? Were you happy with the result? How did you think the opening statements went versus the answers the final three provided to the jury? What did you think of Reed's wicked stepmother speech? How would you score the jury? Where does this season rank for you against the other 28? Any thoughts or predictions on season 30, Worlds Apart?

Rashmi not only dodged a bullet, she managed to dominate the JSFL side challenge this season! She will be deciding what Nina's punishment will be for coming in dead last. We'll have the update on the overall JSFL winner for the Listener Feedback show on Saturday.
