Blood vs. Water Episode 11

They told us Ciera's hardest choice happened last week when she voted her mother out, but this seemed equal if not more significant this week when she opted to fracture the final five alliance. It was great to see significant play from Hayden, Ciera and Tyson. Meanwhile, the imminent threat Katie faced appears to have completely dissipated. She is not on anyone's radar now. Monica continued her reign at the Immunity challenge, and Laura once again demonstrated why she is such a significant threat at RI. These two moms will be a force to be reckoned with going forward.

Is it ever a good choice to give in to temptation and eat instead of compete at the Immunity challenge? Who do you think Tyson and Gervase would be more likely to take as a final 3 at this point: Monica or Ciera? How significant will Laura's choice to help Tina be at RI? Who is your choice for next to go?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 11.
Kasama: Ciera, Gervase, Hayden, Katie, Monica, and Tyson.
Redemption Island:LauraM, Tina, and Caleb

Blood vs. Water Episode 10 LF

Responses to Ciera's "bold" move to vote off her mother were split. Some thought it was a great demonstration of her loyalty to her alliance, while others saw it as a demonstration of how untrustworthy she might be if she can be that cutthroat. Several folks defended the overall game play of Ciera, Monica, and Hayden. In a moment that seemed like someone had declared opposite day, several fans stepped forward to say "Stacy was right", about a few points in the recap for this last episode. Well, except about the snakecakes!

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 10 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: Ronda, Donald, BrandonA, Mikko, Snowy, DrewG, Johnny, Josh, Jeremiah, Nicki, and Paul.

SFP Interview: Castoff from Episode 10 of Survivor Blood vs. Water


This week we interviewed Aras Baukauskas. He left the game in episode 10 of Survivor Blood vs. Water. His "blood" connection and struggles with his brother Vytas plus the "water" connection with his friend Gervase that eventually undid him represented the epitome of the themes that shaped this season.

Listen to this interview to hear details on why he lost that last challenge, the original, banned name of the merge tribe, how he will decide to cast his vote for the winner and lots more!

Blood vs. Water Episode 10

We had a hard time believing that Ciera was the mastermind with her veteran player and mother taking direction from her, regardless of how proud Laura was. Ciera certainly had her brightest moment of the season though when she tricked Katie into acknowledging that she did not actually find the HII. Katie appears to have missed out on a great opportunity to drive a wedge in the controlling alliance when she did not share the fact that the HII appeared to have already been found. Monica was impressive in the challenge, but may have only furthered her case as a goat when she passed on the reward with a bit too much fake sincerity instead of actually endearing herself to her alliance as she intended.

Does it make sense for everyone in the alliance to hold strong and vote out Katie next? What is Katie's best option to stay in the game? What other options could Monica have considered for who to share the reward with? Do the original Tadhana four have a chance to take control of the alliance and flip the script on Tyson? Who now has the best chance to return from RI, and how will that end up affecting the game?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 10.
Kasama: Caleb, Ciera, Gervase, Hayden, Katie, Monica, and Tyson.
Redemption Island:LauraM, Tina, and Vytas

Blood vs. Water Episode 9 LF

Predictions were split between Tina and Aras for who would be first to be eliminated from RI and likely become the first jury member. Most of us believe that the Ciera and Laura story line is a red herring and expect that they'll choose to dump erratic Monica next.

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. Twelve fans shared their thoughts on episode 9 and predictions for what we'll see next.

Blood vs. Water Episode 9

This week's double elimination was all about restocking RI so we can get back to those exciting truel duels. It allowed the controlling alliance to do some necessary house keeping and hopefully accelerates the inevitable eliminations that need to take place before it gets tricky again. Tyson demonstrated great discipline with the HII again. It's exciting to see how well he is playing compared to the others. It took a lot of extra energy to keep up the charade and be that convincing.

Who do you think will be first on the jury? Who currently stands the best chance to return from RI? Are there any real options for Katie? Has Monica killed her chance to make it to the end? Will Ciera really go through with eliminating her mom? Who has the best chance to make it to final three now?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 9.
Kasama: Caleb, Ciera, Gervase, Hayden, Katie, LauraM, Monica, and Tyson.
Redemption Island:Aras, Tina, and Vytas

Blood vs. Water Episode 8 LF

There was little remorse for Aras's loss. Vytas is expected to follow shortly, and many are worried for Tina. Tyson, Hayden and even Cierra were all floated as potential winners now that the merge has occurred. We are headed for a double elimination. Make sure to choose two vote outs this week, and this is the only time you can update your USB. Listen to the wrap section for JSFL details.

SFP Interview: Castoffs from Episode 8 of Survivor Blood vs. Water


This week we interviewed Laura Boneham and John Cody. They left the game in episode 8 of Survivor Blood vs. Water. Their fates were intertwined at the beginning of the game when they and their loved ones became victims of the initial vote out and then ended up hanging on until their paths crossed again when they were eliminated together on day 18.

Listen to this interview to hear behind the scenes details on their last challenge, Laura's explanation of the fish basket fiasco, what they wish had been shown that we didn't get to see and lots more!

Blood vs. Water Episode 8

What a difference a day makes in Survivor. The fall of Aras is now almost complete. There is still a chance he could save himself, but the chances of him winning it all again have begun to dim. His brother Vytas appears likely to suffer a similar fate as king Tyson takes control and begins to devour the competition. LauraM was selected by her tribe to go take out Brad. It was awesome to watch her win her way back to be in the game, and might prove to be pivotal in unseating the controlling alliance.

Do you think Aras has a chance to return from RI? Are Vytas' chances much better? Who is the best goat to take to the final 3 now? Is Tyson a shoe-in for final 3? How long do you think LauraM will be able to hang on? Could she be the key to flipping the script on Tyson? Who is your pick for the next one to be voted out?

Here is the merged tribe after episode 8.
Kasama: Caleb, Ciera, Gervase, Hayden, Katie, LauraM, Monica, Tina, Tyson and Vytas
Redemption Island:Aras

Blood vs. Water Episode 7 LF

Lady Rupert was a focus of the discussion this week. It is easy to see why BrandonA would consider her for worst Survivor ever. The consensus says that LauraM will return from RI. Dan from NY reminded us that she was a fitness instructor, so this prediction has merit even if we haven't seen her do anything physical in the challenges so far. The merge should bring more brain twisting challenges as we try to guess who will be voted out next.

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. Twelve fans shared their thoughts on episode 7 and predictions for what we'll see next.
