SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 11 of Survivor Redemption Island


This week we interviewed Julie Wolfe. She left the game in episode 11 of Survivor Redemption Island. We were as surprised as she was when she was voted out, and we really wish she had not told Phillip about the rock.

Listen to this audio interview to hear why she thought she was uniquely prepared to play the game, her thoughts on Rob and Russell, the role Redemption Island might play in the finale and lots more!

Redemption Island Episode 11

The total domination of Zapatera is almost complete. With all of the remaining members at Redemption Island, there is only one chance for a Zapatera to return to the game now. Given the divine intervention that Matt receives in the duels, that seems very unlikely. Be honest. Some of you are starting to think that Phillip has tapped into a higher power too, right? How else can you explain the manifestation of feathers and most importantly the vision that enabled him to find his shorts?

Now it gets interesting. Ometepe has to finally turn on each other. Do you think they will take the easy route and vote out Andrea? Will she accept that fate or go down fighting? If Matt makes it back from Redemption Island and into the final 3 against Rob, will he be able to beat him? What is your assessment of this group? Do you think we will have a jury that respects gameplay or will we see another classic bitter vote against the person that beat them? What is your guess for the vote out order of the remaining Ometepes?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip and Rob
Redemption Island Duel:Steve vs. Ralph vs. Matt vs. Mike

Jo Ann thinks Andrea will Rob's first target. Stacy thinks the ladies will demand that Phillip get the boot next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 10 LF

We agree with you. Episode 10 was quite the mixed bag. One person came to Phillip's defense, but the majority think he was way off base but certainly a great person to have sitting next to you in a final Tribal Council. Rob seems to have the perfect foils in Phillip and Natalie. Rob can play as cut throat as he needs to when it comes time for the former Ometepe members to turn on each other, and he could still come away with the votes to win with kooky Phillip and Natalie the parrot with him at 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. Twenty two fans shared their thoughts on episode 10 and predictions for what we'll see next.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 10 of Survivor Redemption Island


This week we interviewed David Murphy. He left the game in episode 10 of Survivor Redemption Island. In the pre-season interviews, we were told that David had the highest IQ of anyone to ever play the game. He said he would have to "dumb himself down" if he had any hope of relating to his tribemates. In the end, he fell into a familiar pattern of overthinking and wasn't able to master the social aspects of the game.

Listen to this audio interview to hear how he was injured, the illness he endured while in the game, his thoughts on Phillip's state of mind and lots more!

Redemption Island Episode 10

We've seen race come up as in issue in previous seasons, most recently in Samoa, but this episode Phillip took things to a whole different level. As much as we enjoy all his goofy antics, it was really uncomfortable to watch him come unglued and attack Steve. Did you buy his explanation? Do you think he was justified in his outburst?

The Robfather appears to have an iron grip on the fate of the remaining Zapatera members. Is it safe enough for him to start voting out some of the Ometepe tribe now? Do you think Zapatera made the right call with the rice? Phillip appears to be really unstable. Can you think of a scenario where he could win the $1M? Do you think Matt or Mike really has a shot at winning if they return from Redemption Island?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Grant, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Julie vs. Matt vs. Mike

Jo Ann thinks Rob will continue the Zapatera death march and target Steve next. Stacy thinks they will finally get rid of Phillip now that the numbers advantage is so strong. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 9 LF

Episode 9 with its two challenges, and two tribal councils left many of you feeling rushed and somewhat unfulfilled as no one actually left the game. A few said it was boring and predictable as the demise of the original Zapatera tribe follows its course. We agreed with the good points several of you made about the tradeoffs of keeping Redemption Island after the merge versus the value of the Reward challenges. We especially enjoyed hearing your ideas for how the Zapatera members might be able to find a weak point to exploit in the cult of Rob.

For each episode, we normally 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 seven fans shared their thoughts on episode 9 and predictions for what we'll see next.

Redemption Island Episode 9

Attention all Survivor students. The Robfather is running an advanced placement Survivor strategy clinic during season 22. There will be special sessions on managing sleeping quarters, scheduling feeding times, encouraging a sense of entitlement and outward displays of arrogance as well as tips on how to organize a buddy system to encourage your alliance to spy on each other.

Things look grim for the 2 1/2 remaining Zapatera members. Do you think there's any chance for Julie, Ralph and what's left of Steve to make it to the end? Grant showed a small amount of rebellion this week with the fish. Do you ever see him attempting to wrest control away from Rob? Will the original Ometepe members be able to keep it together until all the Zapateras are gone? Would you be happy with Rob's final 3? Who will you be cheering for at the Redemption Island duel?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, Julie, Grant, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Matt vs. David vs.Mike

Jo Ann thinks Rob will want to make Julie pay for those zingers she landed in Tribal Council. Stacy thinks they will get rid of Ralph. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Redemption Island Episode 8 LF

 

The merge really fueled your fire this week. Most of you were thrilled with the results. Matt seems to have lost a lot of his Redemption Island luster. Many of you were thrilled with how the Robfather managed his tribe, but a few thought he might have made a strategic error. There were also some great theories on potential, emergent alliances with Andrea, Phillip and David at the center of the action. We really enjoyed hearing Luke's analogy to help explain the lesson that Matt just cannot seem to learn.

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. Forty five fans shared their thoughts on episode 8 and predictions for what we'll see next.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 8 of Survivor Redemption Island


This week we interviewed Sarita White. She left the game in episode 8 of Survivor Redemption Island. Sarita was the first of the Zapatera 6 to fall. They made it their mission to crush Russell's dreams and went so far as to throw a challenge to make it happen. We heard initial reports that Sarita was calling the shots on her tribe, but she experienced a rapid descent once the other threats were removed.

Listen to this audio interview to hear her assessment of her tribemates, why she really targeted Russell, how David cracks under pressure and lots more!

Redemption Island Episode 8

 

Targeting flakey tribe members has a long history on Survivor. There is a classic example of it in episode 11 of Survivor Amazon. One of the great dilemmas of the game is that you can essentially trust no one but you are constantly required to choose between small temporary alliances bound by trust. The one surefire way to fail is to demonstrate that you can't be counted on for either choice. When you are viewed as incapable of committing, you make yourself the number one target. Matt clearly has more to learn about the game. Do you think he will figure out what the true lesson of Survivor is during his 2nd visit to RI?

Did Rob do Matt a favor and give him an easier path to final 5? Do you think Mike was sincere when he and Matt were reading the bible together? How do you think Grant will respond to getting five votes at Tribal Council? Will Andrea be able to recover from once again being associated too closely with Matt? With Matt out of the picture, what should be Mike's next move?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Murlonio:Andrea, Ashley, David, Julie, Grant, Mike, Natalie, Phillip, Ralph, Rob and Steve
Redemption Island Duel:Matt

With Matt safely out of the way for now, we think Ometepe will shift their focus to the remaining Zapatera members and target Mike next. Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?
