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

 

When a season is this good, the endings are always bitter sweet. It is time to wrap this up, but not before checking in one last time with the fans to get your perspective on the Finale, Reunion show and the season as a whole. Thanks again to everyone that came together to share and helped make this a great season!

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 four fans made the extra effort to share their thoughts on the finale and predictions for what we can expect from season 29, Blood vs. Water 2.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Ronda, Saundra, BrandonB, Samantha, Mikeybear, Johnny, Sandi, Tim, Michelle, Jody, Rashmi, Aaron, James, Drew, Josh, Ed, Nicola, Kenny, MikeK, Jeremiah, Jill, Doug, David and Paul.

Today we interviewed Tony Vlachos, winner of Survivor Cagayan. He played the game so hard from day one that many of us were convinced that he was going to burn out before the merge. Instead, he seemed to get stronger as the game progressed, inventing his own rules for how to play, improvising on a level that we have never seen before. Tony will be remembered as one of Survivor's great strategists that was rewarded by a jury that was able to overlook their own bitterness and truly respected his mastery and dominance of the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about the early injury that threatened to take him out the game, details on how he destroyed everyone in that mud challenge, the story behind the creation of the spy shack, how he became infected with parasites and much more!

Today we interviewed Woo Hwang. He finished Survivor Cagayan in second place. You could tell he thoroughly appreciated being able to play Survivor. Not even a typhoon could dampen his spirits. His positive attitude set him apart from the other castaways. Unfortunately for him, his strategy to fly under the radar did not sit well with a jury that valued gameplay. In the history of Survivor, he will likely be remembered as another guy who mistakenly chose principles over an easy win.

Listen to this interview to hear how he and Tony stayed powered up throughout the game, how he convinced Tony that Trish had to go, the one thing that stands out most about his experience and more!

Today we interviewed Kass McQuillen. She finished Survivor Cagayan in third place. She too overcame an extremely rocky start as a member of a completely dysfunctional tribe to later become the most reviled castaway of the season. She will be remembered for her unconventional strategies, instigating arguments and for the most impressive, come from behind, final four Immunity challenge win in Survivor history. We likely have not seen the last of "Kaos Kass".

Listen to this interview to hear her story of how she made it on to the show, how the events on day three set the tone for her approach to the game, why winning the final four challenge during the family visit was so significant for her and more!

Today we interviewed Spencer Bledsoe. He finished the game in fourth place in Survivor Cagayan. Spencer survived being in the worst tribe in Survivor history and in spite of that made it to the final four. It was like the Survivor gods were playing a giant game of keep away with Spencer the whole time he was there. In spite of that, he lived a fans dream of lasting to final four and taking down three Individual Immunity idols. He let his temper get away from him a few times, but on the whole he played a great game and we really appreciated his depth of knowledge and respect for the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about what ended up frustrating him the most out there, more details on the impact of his Final Tribal speech, the surprising scene that didn't make it on the show and more!

A great season deserves a great finale, and that is exactly what we got! It remained unpredictable to the end. The majority of this cast was superb. We can not think of a season that had so many castaways that came to play to win. It never seemed predictable either. We were blindsided right along with most of the Survivors at each Tribal Council. The season ended with two great challenges that included one of the best come from behind victories in Survivor history. Many on the jury were bitter and opted to take revenge or grand stand at the final Tribal Council, but in the end all but one of them opted to reward dominant game play over adherence to personal principles.

Were you happy with the result? Do you recall anyone on a jury giving as passionate a speech as Spencer offered in support of Tony? How would you score the jury? Who nailed it and who disappointed? Where does this reason rank for you against the other 27? Any thoughts or predictions on season 29, Blood vs. Water 2?

JSFL Update: Congratulations to David from Brooklyn, winner of this season's JSFL!
Note:Jeremiah, your side challenge debt will be decided by BrandonB.

We were surprised so many of you are such big fans of llama-speak. Tony's impression definitely got you talking and even sparked a couple of imitators too. As expected, there are some clear favorites you are cheering for as we head into the finale on Wednesday. On the other end of the spectrum, Kass drew a lot of ire, but there was also one person with an interesting theory on how she might still be able to win now that we know it will be a final two. We are anxious to see how this great season wraps up and hope it will keep the excitement and surprises going to the end!

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. Sixteen fans made the extra effort to share their thoughts on episode 16 and predictions for what we'll see next.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Ronda, Jill, Mikeybear, Jody, Rashmi, Nicola, BrandonA, Nicki, Ken, Drew, BrandonB, Kenny, Josh, Jeremiah, Jan and Paul.

This week we interviewed Trish Hegarty. She left the game in episode 12 of Survivor Cagayan. Trish was tagged as the weakest member of her tribe on day one. She slowly built her alliance and eventually took control of her tribe. She was instrumental in several blindsides and provided much of the social awareness and balance that Tony's game was missing. It worked perfectly right up until he decided to get rid of her.

Listen to this interview to hear who she thinks is most deserving of the win, what surprised her the most while watching from home, how long it took her to physically and mentally recover and more!

Here we are at episode 12, with only one episode to go, and we are still getting blindsides! This has been one of the most consistent seasons we have had in a long time. It may have taken 36 days, but it seems like Woo finally woke up and decided to play the game instead of settling for being Tony's little buddy. Tony has taken a big gamble. Rather than demonstrate his loyalty to Trish, he has opted to use the TPI for his ultimate bluff. Do you think it will pay off to secure his spot at a final 3? It looks like Tony and Spencer may trade roles with Tony now in the minority, underdog role. Do you think Kass and Woo will want to go to the final 3 with Spencer?

What did you think about Tony's choice to bluff with the TPI? Was there a better option available? How significant was Trish to Tony's end game plan? Will she be a great advocate or his worst nightmare at the Ponderosa? Does Kass or Woo still have a chance to win? What will be the most surprising ending for you? Who is your pick to win it all?

Here are our final four.
Solarrion:Kass, Spencer, Tony and Woo

Spencer is the obvious choice for the next one to be voted out, but he has a habit of saving himself when the chips are down. If that were to happen again, the feedback this week says Woo will be the most likely to join the jury next. Based on your responses, it is clear that Kass has more in common with Russell Hantz than Tony, by a long shot. In spite of all that, hope is not lost for Kaos Kass. Some of you still think she can pull out a win if she is sitting beside the right folks at final tribal council.

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. Thirteen fans made the extra effort to share their thoughts on episode 11 and predictions for what we'll see next.
