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


This week we interviewed Mari Takahashi. She left the game in episode 2 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. Mari was a huge fan favorite at the start of the season. Her pregame interviews told us she was going to take the emotion out of it, leverage her gaming experience and maybe even take on a villain role. She appeared to get off to a good start, and then shocked us all and herself by becoming the first person voted off of her tribe and this season's first blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear about the extreme measure she took to prepare, how her tribe handled the search for the HII, her assessment of her tribemates and more!

This week we interviewed Rachel Ako. She left the game in episode 1 of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X. It's the little things that you have to watch out for at the beginning of the game. How you choose to speak to others and whether you take a risk and volunteer for a specific task in the Immunity challenge can make or break you. Unfortunately for Rachel, her social game was not strong enough to compensate for a couple of events that combined to make her this season's first boot.

Listen to this interview to hear her assessment of her tribemates, details on what happened during the evacuation, how her dad responded to her experience and more!

This week we interviewed Michele Fitzgerald, the winner of Survivor Kaoh Rong. It was easy to overlook Michele in the beginning as just another pretty face. The theme of the season and her tribe reinforced it. She was a key member of a dominant tribe and that kept her out of the spotlight of tribal council for the first 21 days, but she was already working her "win from the middle" strategy even before the merge. From there, it was a long, patient, strategic climb to the end where she built on her physical and mental competitiveness along with her all inclusive social game to turn the eventual tide in her favor.

Listen to this interview to hear how she fought to get on the show, how she felt about her edit, her thoughtful comparison of the her and Aubry's social game and lots more!

This week we interviewed Tai Trang and Aubry Bracco. Tai came in third and Aubry took second place in the finale of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Tai became a fan favorite right out the gate and his connection to all things living brought us another fan favorite in Mark the Chicken, a true life Survivor of this season. Tai's dance on the dark side left some of us conflicted with the hero image we had of him. Aubry's start was the complete opposite which framed her as weak and succumbing to the elements. She slowly started to win us over when she bounced back and began an amazing comeback arc only to get knocked down again and again, but finessed her way to the end with an impressive strategic and social game.

Listen to this interview to hear how they got on the show, how Tai injured himself in training before the game began, the foundation to Aubry's amazing social game and lots more!

This week we interviewed Joe Del Campo. He left the game in episode 13 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. So many of us thought Joe would be among the first to go, but he proved us wrong again and again and again. He proved so strong and resilient that we were shocked and saddened to see him leave for medical reasons. He raised the bar for what we should expect from castaways in their 70s.

Listen to this interview to hear why he chose to apply, what all happened after he was pulled from the game, how his Survivor experience has continued to enhance his life and lots more!

This week we interviewed Kyle Jason. He left the game in episode 12 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Jason was a brash, polarizing figure. We're happy that as a fan of the game, he managed to get a full experience that he now treasures even though many of us didn't appreciate how he chose to play the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about the extensive injuries he hid to avoid being pulled, what was required to fix him up, who has his Hidden Immunity Idol and lots more!

This week we interviewed Julia Sokolowski. She left the game in episode 11 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. It was easy for some of us to overlook Julia in the beginning, and she benefited from an easy start by being on a winning tribe. But a short, solo trip to Brawn beach served as a wake up call, and then we were surprised and happy to see just how savvy she was at such a young age. We've never seen someone this young do so well. She set the bar very high for all future teenage castaways.

Listen to this interview to hear which event devastated her the most, how her experience changed her, what she will be looking for at the final tribal council and lots more!

This week we interviewed Scot Pollard. He left the game in episode 10 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Scot never set out to be a hero or downplay his wealth and all his success in life. His willingness to intimidate and sabotage his fellow castaways when the game didn't go his way, provoked outrage and anger which meant his eventual blindside was a source of great delight for many fans.

Listen to this interview to hear details on the health scare that almost took him out of the game, how he planned to win the Jury's votes, an update on his upcoming movie and lots more!

This week we interviewed Debbie Wanner. She left the game in episode 9 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Debbie set new records for having had the most past occupations and the ability to spot microscopic pathogens in water with the naked eye. Her quirkiness masked a pragmatic understanding of the game that allowed her to remove much younger threats early on. Unfortunately, her sometimes brash approach to the game and stubborn refusal to work with her alliance resulted in another stunning blindside.

Listen to this interview to hear about the other ways the guys sabotaged the camp, how Debbie got revenge, why Mike the Chicken is still alive, and lots more!

This week we interviewed Nick Maiorano. He left the game in episode 8 of Survivor Kaoh Rong. Given Nick's glowing review of his own skills in the pre-season videos, we really enjoyed getting to see him through the eyes of his fellow castaways. We came to realize that he did probably have some aptitude for the game, but it was not enough to overcome his ability to annoy all the women left in the game.

Listen to this interview to hear about which castaway he aligned with before the beginning of the game, why Tai voted for Jason, his advice to the fans and more!
