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

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

This week we interviewed Sandra Diaz-Twine. She left the game in week 5 of Survivor Game Changers. Never in the game has someone demonstrated such immense bravado, and been able to back it up with results. Sandra played at a level clearly above most of her tribemates. It was entertaining to watch her work her magic, and it genuinely impressed many of her fellow castaways. Alas, not even Sandra could overcome a determined majority set on ousting her.

Listen to this interview to hear her take on what happened at that last Immunity Challenge, an assessment of her tribemates, new details on what we didn't get to see and lots more!

"Pride goeth before destruction", and the level of smack talk we were subjected to this season from a single castaway before this episode reached its conclusion was off the charts. In a game where the "luck of the draw" is such a central factor, it is only a matter of time before the hammer of humility strikes you down when you get too big for your britches. Were you sad or satisfied with the Tribal Council vote this week? Why do you think the Mana tribe is crying in the next episode?

What advantage option would you have chosen? What do you think of Debbie's chances now? Do you think Varner can recover? Who do you think is playing the best, and who is in the most jeopardy of being voted out before the merge? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after week 5.
New New Mana:Aubry, Brad, Cirie, Hali, Michaela, SierraT, and Troyzan
New New Nuku:Andrea, Debbie, Ozzy, Sarah, Tai, Varner, and Zeke

It's another episode with so much to talk about. Here are a few of the big themes this week: Sugergate, the whirling Debbie dervish, many references to fiddle playing, a lost legacy, and the burning question on everyone's mind: how is Sandra still in the game? Plus, we want more! Wednesday can't get here quick enough.

We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who contributed to another great LF show. This week we heard from: Pete, Tina, Shea, Ian, Myra, Bill, Nicola, Jay, Parker, Doreese, Sophia, Titus, Becca-Liam-Caroline, Mikeybear, Marla-n-Sarah, Jody, Drew-n-The-Hooligans, James, Kenny, Joyce, Harold, Shannon, Joel, Jack, Micheal, Samantha, Aaron, BrandonB, Rashmi, Alar, Jacqueline, Jean, Jen, Josh, and Paul.

This week we interviewed JT. He left the game in week 4 of Survivor Game Changers. JT will no doubt remain a fan favorite for all the reasons we loved watching him in his first season, but he will also be remembered for a couple of major blunders in his third attempt. He managed to inadvertently take out his closest ally and then failed to take advantage of the one thing in his possession that could have saved him as he became yet another blindside in this exciting season.

Listen to this interview to hear his assessment of his tribemates, his reaction when he learned how he had been set up, what he did with the HII and lots more!

Welcome to the vengeance zone! Enjoy a slice of the blindside pie with a scoop of revenge on top. There are castaways in the game that deserve the title of "game changer", and we saw a great demonstration of the lengths that a skilled player will go to when they feel they have been betrayed. What did you think of the sugar showdown? Who do you think will go to Exile Island, and which surprise Survivor would you like to see in the next episode?

What would you have done if you were in Varner's position? What did you make of Debbie's outbursts and her explanation? Who do you think is playing the best, and who is in the most jeopardy of being voted out before the merge? Who do you think will be next to go?

Here are the tribes after week 4.
New Mana:Brad, Debbie, Hali, SierraT, and Tai
New Nuku:Aubry, Michaela, Sandra and Varner
Tavua:Andrea, Cirie, Ozzy, Sarah, Troyzan and Zeke
