Philippines Finale LF

It is time to take one final look back at Survivor Philippines. We are in agreement that we just experienced a great, action packed, surprise filled season. It was just what we had been asking for: a cast packed with smart, clever, entertaining people that love the game and were all playing hard to win. We will be on break until February when season 26, Survivor Caramoan, makes its debut. Until then, happy holidays and have a great break.

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. Eighteen fans shared their thoughts on the finale, season as a whole, and thoughts on Survivor Caramoan.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Christy, Jody, Samantha, Josh, Rashmi, BrandonB, Carolyn, Shelley, Drew, Eric, Lil' Russ, Nicki, Aaron, Alice, Anna, Brian, Jeremiah, and Paul.

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.

SFP Interview: Michael Skupin from Survivor Philippines


Today we interviewed Michael Skupin. He finished the game in a tie for second place of Survivor Philippines. He faced tough odds as a returning player when many of his tribemates targeted the returnees right out of the gate. He flirted with injuries throughout the game, survived frequent consideration as a vote out target, and ultimately managed to win immunity to secure his spot in the final three.

Listen to this interview to hear details on the strategy that got him to the end, the special souvenir he kept, the story behind that rhino shirt, and lots more!

SFP Interview: Malcolm Freberg from Survivor Philippines

Philippines Finale

Wow, what a season! This is the first time we can think of where we would have been happy with any of the final four winning. Even the finale held some surprises when it came to the final immunity challenge and the jury questions. We had a great time covering the finale in Hollywood. There were lots of stand out moments and it was a pleasure to meet the cast in person and spend time with fellow fans of the show.

What did you think of the finale and the reunion show? Were you happy with the result? How does Denise compare to other Survivor winners? How did the season as a whole compare with your favorites? Was this a bitter jury? Were you happy with the winner of Player of the Season? How big a role do you think starting with 3 tribes had on our enjoyment of this season? What do you think about Survivor Caramoan: Fans vs. Favorites? Who would be on your list of returning players? Listener Feedback is due by Wednesday, December 19th at 5pm PST.

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. The final Listener Feedback show will be on Wednesday, December 19th. Feedback will be due by 5pm PST.

Congratulations to Chaos from Utah and Enrico from the Philippines who tied for winner of Survivor Philippines JSFL!

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 13 of Survivor Philippines


This week we interviewed Abi Maria Gomes. In the beginning, she told us she was as charming as Parvati and known for her positive energy, but Abi will be remembered for being a stand out villain in Survivor history. She embraced her dark side and it served her well all the way to final five.

Listen to this interview to hear about the injury that required surgery to repair, how she felt watching herself in the game, her criteria for a sole survivor, and lots more!

Philippines Episode 13

This episode could have easily been titled: Surprise! It started with Abi expressing what sounded like her sincere thanks to her tribemates for keeping her over Carter. The next big one came when Skupin won reward and picked Malcolm to join him. Then Malcolm surprised us by wasting no time in throwing Denise under the bus. They just kept coming. Denise is in terrible pain and might go out on a medical. Abi looked like the perfect goat to take to the end. But the biggest surprise of all was that Lisa was back and playing the game like never before. The "Justice Jumpstart" was still in full effect. She did not let their inability to blindside Malcolm deter her from her mission to make it to the end. Surprise, she didn't even cry once this episode!

We are down to the end now. What happens to Malcolm if he does not win the last Immunity challenges? Do you think anyone can beat Denise if she makes it to the final tribal council? How significant is it that Skupin is the only returning player to make it this far? Has anyone struggled as much as Lisa to make it here? There are four Tandang in jury. Does that automatically give Skupin and Lisa and advantage? What's your final four order?

Philippines Episode 12 LF

The family visit episodes are always charged with emotions and we certainly got a double dose of those this week. You had a lot to say about that aspect of the game, and talk of the impact that Justice made was front and center. The featured religious moments prompted several comments, but certainly lots of us were happy to see it toned down from the over the top productions from seasons past. The predictions you offered up pivot on Abi, and it will be interesting to see her role in all of this play out in episode 13.

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. Nineteen fans shared their thoughts on episode 12 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: Dale, Sue, Jeremiah, Brian, Samantha, Lil' Russ, Anna, Ryan, Rashmi, Drew, Boston Mark, Michael, BrandonB, Christy, Josh, Jen, Carolyn, Paul and Krista.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 12 of Survivor Philippines


This week we interviewed Carter Williams. Carter will be remembered for his awesome performance in the challenges and his "Ozzy like" ability to figure out the best approach to several of the stages. He will also be remembered for his "good guy" approach to the game which unfortunately led to his downfall when the alliance of four chose to keep evil Abi Normal over him when it came to a choice for final five.

Listen to this interview to hear how he felt about his edit, what he knew about the Malcolm blindside plan, what Miles said that worried Malcolm and lots more!
