Survivor Fans Podcast
Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

 

Based on feedback this week, watching Cirie overcome those obstacles deeply touched a lot of fans, but some felt it was all a bit heavy handed or forced at the same time. While many will surely miss Debbie's entertainment value, most were singing, dancing or fist pumping in delight at the surprise she received at Tribal Council. We're all excited to see what week 9 will bring our way. Hurry up Wednesday!

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Pete, BostonMark, Shea, Shelley, Victoria, Parker, Tim, Seth, Becca-n-Liam, Barbara, Drew, Jack, Kenny, Nicola, Ronda, Rashmi, Josh, Harold, Shannon, Joel, Jean, Jen, and Paul.

We've got several ways you can reach us. You can call and leave a voicemail at 206-350-1547 or toll-free at 844-643-8737. 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.

This week we interviewed Debbie Wanner. She left the game in week 8 of Survivor Game Changers. While she eased up on the litany of past occupations this time, she still managed to bring the fireworks. She will be remembered this season for orchestrating the takedown of Ozzy, and for once again being blindsided after under estimating a member of her alliance.

Listen to this interview to hear why she sought out Brad for an early alliance, how she sees her big blow up at him after watching it on TV, who she would like to see win and much more.

If you are ever lucky enough to play Survivor but find yourself so confident about your control over the game that you use the word "inconceivable" in a sentence regarding your alliance's ability to control the outcomes, warning bells should immediately start going off in your head. You just committed the classic Survivor sin of overconfidence and have become a prime target for a blindside vote at the next Tribal Council. It's really that simple. 

How long do you think the new alliance of six will hold together? How long do you give Brad and Sierra? Who will play their HII first: Tai or Troyzan? Who do you think is playing the best, and in the best position to make it to the end? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the new merged tribe after week 8.
Maku Maku:Andrea, Aubry, Brad, Cirie, Michaela, Sarah, SierraT, Tai, Troyzan, and Zeke

There is always lots to cover in a double episode week, and this was no exception. The themes that arose for the feedback this week include: "Yeah, Cirie is featured", "I sure hope Cirie being featured does not mean that she is next to go", "wait, you mean Brad and Tai really get nothing for their sacrifice?", "Zeke's in trouble", "Sarah and Debbie both appear to be playing well", "That talk between Cirie and Michaela was awesome!". We are already stoked for the next installment. Good luck to those picking a new USB!

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Pete, Rob, Jill, Mikeybear, Samantha, Sarah, Parker, Victoria, Nicola, Harold, James, Drew, Kenny, Jack, Joel, Josh, Jodi, Ronda, Beth, Jen, Shannon and Paul.

This week we interviewed Ozzy. He was the second castaway to leave the game in week 7 of Survivor Game Changers. Ozzy established himself as a legendary player in his first season. No one has ever matched his ability to provide for his tribes or help them excel at the physical components of the challenges. Unfortunately, that has also made him a huge target each time he played. We were happy and surprised he made it this far in what has proven to be a really tough season and will miss watching him work his magic each week.

Listen to this interview to hear his challenge advice for future players, his biggest regret this time, who he would like to see win and much more.

This week we interviewed Hali Ford. She was the first castaway to leave the game in week 7 of Survivor Game Changers. Hali started the game in an underdog position and never seemed to be able to overcome it. She had some memorable moments at Tribal Council, took some big risks, and even made a little Survivor history. But in the end, her departure appeared to be a classic "Pagonging" vote with a little extra nudge from Cirie.

Listen to this interview to hear what she did to get a chance to play again, more details on the Debbie meltdown, how she will determine who gets her vote for the million and much more.

Woohoo! We have reached the merge. This is the point where the game kicks into overdrive and you will get dropped in the wake if you can not keep up and did not work hard to land in a controlling alliance. It looked like we were in for a good old fashioned "Pagonging" of Mana, but it was too tempting to add the blindsiding of a legend for one alliance to resist. Thank you CBS for two hours of Survivor this week! Let's make this the default.

How long do you think Cirie can survive as the only legend left in the game? How much will losing their primary provider impact them with 15 days left to play? How can Zeke save himself? How do you think Debbie and Michaela are playing? Who do you think is playing the best, and in the best position to make it to the end? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here is the new merged tribe after week 7.
Maku Maku:Andrea, Aubry, Brad, Cirie, Debbie, Michaela, Sarah, SierraT, Tai, Troyzan, and Zeke

Survivor is designed to give us a view into the human condition "in a pressure cooker". As with real life, people are sometimes motivated to do extremely hurtful things to each other. Unfortunately, we were witness to another one of these events in the last episode. In this week's feedback, we talk it out and the super fans offer the benefit of a multitude of perspectives. Just as in life, the game moves on. The next episode will bring a double, two hour merge episode.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Pete, Nicola, Jill, Ann, Skippy, Aaron, BrandonA, Sarah, Samantha, Sandi, Bonnie, Ronda, Michal, Myra, Mikeybear, Shea, Jay, Sophie, Beth, Victoria, Stephanie, Marla-n-Sarah, FD, Drew's Crew, Kenny, Tina, Joel, Krista, Jody, Rashmi, Jacqueline, Josh, Harrold, Jack, Kaylee, Pat, Jaywaffles, Courtney, Carolyn, Jeremiah, Jen, Crystal, Ed, and Paul.

This week we interviewed Jeff Varner. He left the game in week 6 of Survivor Game Changers. Jeff's legacy is that he will forever be remembered for doing something horrible and hurtful to a fellow castaway. He is now working to make amends for his gross lapse in judgement. Let's all learn from his mistake and strive to treat each other better.

Listen to this interview to hear him acknowledge and apologize for the wrong he did, recognize the significance of the responses he's received, as well as how he is dealing with it going forward.

Survivor is an amazing, complex game because its foundation is built on the human condition. It brings out the best in some folks, and the absolute worst in others. Most castaways dream of becoming a hero, but their motivations and choices, which are often made under extreme pressure, can also backfire, unravel, highlighting poor judgement and a mean spirit. What is the best way to handle it when someone crosses the line like that? What do you think this will mean for Varner's Survivor legacy?

If there is a power struggle at the merge, who do you hope ends up in control? Which threats would you focus on first: strategic or physical? Who do you think is playing the best, and in the best position going into the merge? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after week 6.
New New Mana:Aubry, Brad, Cirie, Hali, Michaela, SierraT, and Troyzan
New New Nuku:Andrea, Debbie, Ozzy, Sarah, Tai, and Zeke
