The producers of Surivor have orchestrated this season to emphasize first impressions which coincides with a tradition here at the Survivor Fans Podcast.

This is Part I of our "Judge a Book by its Cover" show. We've recorded our perspective on each new castaway including how well we think they'll do in the overall game as well as some extra details revealed in the TV Guide preview.

Now it is your turn. We want to hear what you think about the 16 new contestants for Survivor Tocantins.
Study the pictures at, 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 two will that get the boot before the tribes start the four trip to camp and 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 Part II of the JABBIC 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 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.

Time's running out for JSFL registration. We're going to have to close it early this season. We've already received more requests to join than we had last year. If you're interested in participating in the JSFL, our own, private Survivor fantasy league, send an email to to let us know, and we'll add you to the roster and send you additional instructions if there's still an available slot open. 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
