Jo Ann and Stacy follow the hit reality show Survivor.

 

Based on the feedback, the early game shuffle caused a lot of unintended confusion for the fans this week. The other recurring theme in the feedback is that Ghost Island appears to have started with a bit of whimper. Given that the castaways are required to break the "urns" in a specific order, we are puzzled why production chose to start with an advantage you have to give away and two instances of nothing to do. Perhaps they were worried about introducing too many advantages/idols at once, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to start so weakly either. The blindside really helped redeem the overall assessment of the episode, and we're ready for the next one.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Pete, Sophie, Mike, Susan, MikeK, Victoria, Parker, BrandonA, Michael, Drew, Kenny, Jack, TAZ, Titus, Aaron, JayWaffles, Jen, JoeyMama Eve, Jeremiah and Paul.

Woohoo! Survivor is kicking off the second week of season 36 with a tribal shuffle and another blindside! Add Libby to the list of castaways we initially underestimated. Beware cute blonds indeed! What did you think of the re-shuffled tribes? Would you count that blindside as another victim of the Legacy Advantage curse?

Did your assessment of any of the castaways change this week? Who do you think is playing the best, and who is still in jeopardy of being voted out before the merge? Who impressed you the most? Who would you have kept? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after week 2.
New Malolo:Brendan, Bradley, Chelsea, Desiree, Jenna, Kellyn, Michael, Sebastian, and Stephanie
New Naviti:Angela, Chris, Dominick, Donathan, James, Laurel, Libby, and Wendell

Survivor season 36, Ghost Island, got off to a fantastic start! We got three exciting challenges and some interesting new twists to the game. Brendan, Stephanie and Chris surprised us the most showcasing some very unexpected but impressive gameplay. What did you think of Chris' choice in the first challenge? What's your opinion of the Ghost Island twist?

How did your assessment of the castaways change once you saw them in action? Who do you think is playing the best, and who is still in jeopardy of being voted out before the merge? Who impressed you the most? Who would you have kept? What would you have done if you were first to Ghost Island and had the Legacy Advantage? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after episode 1.
Malolo:Brendan, Donathan, James, Jenna, Laurel, Libby, Michael, Stephanie
Naviti:Angela, Bradley, Chelsea, Chris, Desiree, Dominick, Kellyn, Morgan, Sebastian, Wendell

It's time again to share our final impressions and thoughts on season 35, Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. The finale got mixed reviews. From one perspective, Ben, a fan favorite and hard worker was rewarded. The other camp feels that Chrissy was robbed by a fickle twist. The overall season got a positive review. All in all though, we once again had fun together and found lots to enjoy and discuss each week. We will be on hiatus until late February when we return for the season 36 JABBIC episodes.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great Listener Feedback show. This week we heard from: Pete, Johnny, Shea, Eliza, KittyCat, Rashmi, Mike, Sandi, Sophie, JK, Judy, Myra, Marla-n-Sarah, Drew, Ed, Kenny, Chris, Josh, Parker, Ronda, Jack, John, Jody, James, Jeremiah, Jen, Shannon, and Paul.

This week we interviewed Ben Driebergen, winner of Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers! Ben found his footing early and started the game strong. The shuffle put him in jeopardy, but he quickly recovered, and gained the upper hand again after the merge. When his core alliance ambushed him, he was able to scramble, improvise, and adapt, saving himself over and over and over. He will be remembered in Survivor history for his amazing HII play.

Listen to this interview to hear the amazing story behind the help the winner received from coworkers to be able to play, their confidence level before the final vote was read, their proudest moves in the game and lots more!

She will be remembered for her outstanding Immunity Challenge performances and tying the all time female record.

This week we interviewed Ryan Ulrich. He made it to the finale and ended up in third place in Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. Ryan had a strong start, becoming an early front runner to win. He faded into the background after the merge and appeared to take a backseat to the other players that pushed the limits of the game. Fortunately for him, he possessed an excellent social game that kept him in the hunt and his ineffectiveness at challenges made him an easy choice for final three.

Listen to this interview to hear about the injury that plagued them through most of the game, how watching the show each week as the game played out affected them during the season, who they would have voted for if there had been a tie at final three and lots more!
