SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 3 Survivor Tocantins


This week we interviewed Jerry Simms. He left the game in episode 3 of Survivor Tocantins. A lot of us had high hopes for Jerry, but an unfortunate illness ended his Survivor experience before we ever really got to see him play.

Listen to this interview to hear his thoughts on each of his tribemates, how he was chosen for the show, why Brendan said he chose Taj to join him on Exile and much more!

Tocantins Episode 3


With episode 3, we transition from one combo challenge per episode to separate reward and immunity challenges providing two opportunities for each player to convince their tribe that they can't live without them or make the choice for who to vote for at tribal council much easier.

Erinn appeared to catch another break this week, but what did you think of her willingness to criticize her tribe again at Tribal Council? Did we get a glimpse of the final four this week: Taj, Brendan, Stephen and Sierra? Is Tyson playing Ben or is he really ok with being his assistant coach? Do you think Taj found the HII too? Would you hide the HII like Brendan did or keep it on you or with your stuff at all times?

Here are the tribes after the third episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Sierra and Tyson

We both think that Timbira is going to continue their losing streak until they get rid of Ben. Unfortunately, we believe they will wait to do that and choose to vote out Erinn next. Who do you think will be voted out in episode 4?

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 2 Survivor Tocantins


This week we interviewed Candace Smith. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Tocantins. She had a lot to say, and the sparks really flew when we asked her to assess her fellow tribemates.

Listen to this interview to hear her sing the praises of two of her Timbira tribemates and dish the dirt on the rest, find out why they arrived so late to camp that first day and the real story behind the shelter that Sierra built.

Note: We apologize for the quality of the audio. There was a problem with static on the line that we were unable to correct.

Tocantins Episode 2

Oh yeah! The challenge in episode 2 was everything we hoped for.

Both tribes provided some fierce gameplay that may result in some lasting resentments. Would you go all out and punish the other tribe in an attempt to win or try to do just enough to get by?

Sandy dodged another bullet, but Sierra seemed at times like she was trying to make it easy to vote her out? Were you surprised and blindsided at Tribal council too? Can you tell who's leading Timbira now based on how the votes played out? How do you think Taj's famous husband will affect her standing in the game?

Here are the tribes after the second episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Debra, Erinn, Jerry, Sierra and Tyson

Stacy thinks the balance will shift back in Timbira's favor next week and expects that Taj may end up paying the price for sharing the details on her famous husband. Jo Ann thinks they'll take the easy route and eliminate Sandy. Who do you think will be voted out next?

This week we interviewed Carolina Eastwood. She left the game in episode 1 of Survivor Tocantins. She might have only spent a short time with the Jalapao tribe, but she had some great stories to share.

Listen to this interview to learn more about her tribe, who emerged as a leader, find out who accused her of stealing, along with what she thought went wrong in the first immunity challenge and lots more!

Tocantins Episode 1

It's great to have Survivor back, and Brazil in HD is magnificent.

We certainly ended up changing our first impressions of several of the new castaways during this first episode.

What do you think Sandy's chances are after getting to see how she handled herself in the first episode? Do you think Sierra made any progress in changing Timbira's minds? What about Ben? How do you think he will fare when his tribe has to go to Tribal Council the first time? How did your first impressions change?

Here are tribes after the first episode:
Jalapao: Joe, JT, Sandy, Spencer, Stephen, Sydney and Taj
Timbira: Benjamin, Brendan, Candace, Debra, Erinn, Jerry, Sierra and Tyson

Here's the clip from Next Time on Survivor that made Stacy laugh so much. Check out Sandy's rodeo skills! This challenge in episode 2 is going to be a awesome!
Sandy at the challenge rodeo

We're both guessing that Timbira well get a turn at Tribal Council next. Jo Ann thinks Erinn will be the next to be voted out. Stacy thinks Ben will rapidly follow in Carolina's footsteps. Who do you think will be voted out next?

Tocantins JABBIC Part I

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 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 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 joannandstacyshow@gmail.com. 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 jsfl.admin@gmail.com 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
