Blood vs. Water Episode 7

The fate of the Baskauskas brothers continues to be a prominent story line since the tribal shuffle. Aras is now officially on the outside of a final 5 alliance. Vytas continues to scrape by because his weaker tribemates have a knack for self destructing once the pressure is applied. Meanwhile, Tina and Katie somehow manage to float by without ever becoming the topic of conversation. It is time for another twist. Brace yourself, the merge is coming.

Do you think Hayden made the right choice? Who would you most like to see return from RI? Who do you think is actually most likely to return? Who stands the best chance to form the controlling alliance after the merge? Will the person returning from RI be able to really rejoin the game or will they be an easy, post merge vote out pick? Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Here are the tribes after episode 7.
New Galang:Katie, Monica, Tina and Vytas
New Tadhana:Aras, Caleb, Ciera, Gervase, Hayden and Tyson
Redemption Island:John, LauraB and LauraM

Blood vs. Water Episode 6 LF

We all agree that the team in charge of challenges at RI was slacking for episode 6. Several of you had some great recommendations for how to improve it, but we would all just as soon not see the "count to 100" task again. Not everyone was in agreement, but most of us seemed to enjoy this episode. No one was surprised to see Kat shoot herself in the foot, and no one predicted that she would return from RI. It will be interesting to see if she manages to wreck Hayden's game too.

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 shared their thoughts on episode 6 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: Jody, Rashmi, Samantha, Trey, BrandonA, Johnny, DrewG, Nicki, Michael, James, Jen, Anne, and Paul.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 6 of Survivor Blood vs. Water


This week we interviewed Brad Culpepper. He left the game in episode 6 of Survivor Blood vs. Water. Brad's primary strategy going into the game was to be a shield for Monica, but he quickly found himself cast as the villain of his tribe. Aras saw Brad as a threat and sent a ringer to RI to take him out.

Listen to this interview to hear why Tadhana were all willing to vote John out, who orchestrated the vote for Rachel, who was willing to draw rocks at Brad's last Tribal Council and lots more!

Blood vs. Water Episode 6

John was able to exact his revenge this week. We bet Candice was quite happy with the result too. The shuffle resulted in Aras and Vytus exchanging places, but it appears like it might have extended to their fates in the game too. Tyson has launched an active campaign against Aras, and it should be interesting to see how this plays out. The merge must be soon, right?

How big of an impact do you think the tribal shuffle will have on the original alliances? Did the shuffle impact your picks for who would make it to final three? Who do you think benefited the most from randomizing the tribes? Who is your pick to return from RI? Will Tina's matchmaking goals cloud her judgement in the game? Will any of the blood alliances survive?

Here are the tribes after episode 6.
New Galang:Katie, LauraB, Monica, Tina and Vytas
New Tadhana:Aras, Caleb, Ciera, Gervase, Hayden and Tyson
Redemption Island:John, Kat and LauraM

Blood vs. Water Episode 5 LF

Folks were split this week on Candice's exit. She definitely evokes strong, polar responses. "Lady Rupert", thanks again Tim, struck most of us as awkward, and it was tough watching her attempt to sew her seeds of discontent in Galang. We heard support for several shuffle options: Family vs. Solo, classic random, shuffle the solos. In any case, the additional twist is expected to further complicate our ability to guess who might be blindsided next. One last thing we agreed on, Katie Brundle's toes, AKA "Katie no nails" are gross.

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. Eleven fans shared their thoughts on episode 5 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: Michael, Sean, Tim, LisaDanger, Sandi, Drew, Ronda, BrandonB, BrandonA, Jen and Paul.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 5 of Survivor Blood vs. Water


This week we interviewed Candice Cody. She left the game in episode 5 of Survivor Blood vs. Water. After being voted off within the first few minutes after forming the tribes, Candice rallied and fought with great determination, vanquishing three other castaways before finally being defeated on day eleven.

Listen to this interview to hear what she went through after getting the last minute call to play, how she felt watching John's emotional struggle, her feelings about the Culpeppers and lots more!

Blood vs. Water Episode 5

The challenge gods appear to have gone out of their way to ensure that both tribes had an equal chance to win immunity this week. The fact that Tadhana had lost four in a row really was not a factor when the challenge consisted of a water slide and a ring toss game. The loss of Brad from Tadhana appeared to have a positive impact on the tribe, despite the fact that they are all bruised, bitten, scraped and poor Katie had parts of her toes falling off. The controlling alliance at Galang has done a masterful job of keeping their plans under wraps, and this week's vote out choice was a great loyalty test for Monica.

Who would you say are the biggest dark horses to win at this point? Can you envision any scenario where LauraB makes it to final three? Who do you think stands the best chance to return from RI now? Galang has a clear majority, but do you think it can withstand a tribal shuffle? Who is most likely to end up with family members still in the game at the merge?

Here are the tribes after episode 5.
Galang:Aras, Gervase, Kat, LauraB, Monica, Tina and Tyson
Tadhana:Caleb, Ciera, Hayden, Katie, and Vytas
Redemption Island:Brad, John, and LauraM

Blood vs. Water Episode 4 LF

Based on this week's feedback, Tyson's stock has gone up considerably with the fans. Brad's appeal took a big dive again, but he redeemed himself with some of us by proving he could be a gracious loser. We're all looking forward to the showdown at RI, and really hope Monica does not sacrifice herself to save her hubby. Caleb impressed us all, but many of us are left wondering how he will be able to capitalize on his new found power in the tribe.

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. Seventeen fans shared their thoughts on episode 4 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: Ann, Brian, Saundra, Sandi, Jan, Erica, Jody, Rashmi, DrewG, Nicola, Sean, BrandonB, BrandonA, Josh, Paul Nicki and Jeremiah.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 4 of Survivor Blood vs. Water


This week we interviewed Marissa Peterson. She left the game in episode 4 of Survivor Blood vs. Water. Marissa slipped up at the beginning of the game and called Brad out in front of everyone. That small error triggered a sequence of events that eventually sealed her fate.

Listen to this interview to hear details on which shady tribemate was in her alliance, how she viewed the option to swap with Gervase at RI, why she chose to speak her mind at the duels and lots more!

Blood vs. Water Episode 4

In yet another twist for this season, the drama we are treated to pre and post challenge at RI continues to overshadow the challenge itself. Candice has found a way to annoy and alienate both tribes, undermining her chances of a successful re-entry into the game. The dysfunctional crew at Tadhana continued their losing streak, and we were treated to some comic relief courtesy of the coconut bandits. The crown jewel of this episode was the emergence of Caleb. We were just commenting last week on how little we had heard from him. Day 10 at Tribal Council certainly changed all that. He sensed a threat, albeit incorrectly, and acted to flip the power structure of his tribe on its head. Who knows, it might be the best thing to happen to Tadhana so far.

Was there a better strategic choice John could have made with the idol clue? How do you think Brad's choices are reflecting on Monica and her standing with the controlling alliance in Galang? Who will emerge as the controlling alliance at Tadhana now that Brad has gone? Who would you most like to see return from RI? Do you think Galang will make a clean sweep of Tadhana? How would you rate Caleb's chances to make it to the end now?

Here are the tribes after episode 4.
Galang:Aras, Gervase, Kat, LauraB, LauraM, Monica, Tina and Tyson
Tadhana:Caleb, Ciera, Hayden, Katie, and Vytas
Redemption Island:Brad, Candice, and John
