There's A New Sheriff in Town

Season 34 of Survivor, Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X, is a thing of the past, having ended this past Wednesday night. So where does this past season fit in to my list of most memorable?

When ranking the most memorable seasons of Survivor, “best” can mean a lot of things, so my list takes into consideration not only the “best” season but the most “memorable” seasons of all time, as they may eventually be remembered from our current vantage point. Obviously the most recent season is freshest in our minds, so the list also takes that into account. Determining factors include memorable players, situations, Tribal Councils, the impact the season had – or will have – on future seasons, and just overall where I feel the season ranks. Everyone has their opinion, so be sure to voice whether you agree or disagree with my rankings. Here goes!

The Stakes Have Been Raised

No season of Survivor would be complete if we didn’t compile the all-time list of winners each season. With 34 seasons now in the rear-view, we just witnessed Sarah Lacina becoming the latest person to win Survivor…but where does this heroic cop-turned-criminal sit on the all-time list?

Each season of Survivor is unique, featuring its own set of rules, and players. Sometimes, comparing who is “best” comes down purely to one’s own personal opinion.

All 33 people who won Survivor obviously did something right in their season to have won. So this ranking is based on three things, and it’s quite simple: How the person played the game – their particular winning season – according to Survivor’s moniker of “Outwit,” “Outplay,” “Outlast.” Read on in order to see the Top 10 Survivor Winners of All-Time and where Sarah Lacina ultimately ranks.

Survivor Game Changers

A season of Survivor called “Game Changers” had a lot to live up to, but it delivered on all accounts. Wednesday night saw Season 34 come to a close with four Tribal Councils that whittled down the remaining six contestants to just one…the Sole Survivor and winner of the million dollar prize.

It was a dramatic ending to what has been a crazy season, and I had the chance to speak with all six of the Final Six players in the game heading into the Finale, including the winner. But before we proceed, you know the drill: Make sure only to read on if you have seen this week’s episode, as spoilers are to follow! Turn back now!

Survivor: Game Changers finale

Well that just happened! The 34th Season of Survivor just came to a close, living up to its “Game Changers” title right up until the end. We entered the night with six players remaining in the game and ended with just one…the Sole Survivor…which was announced live in front of a studio audience in Los Angeles. But wow was it an explosive (or implosive, for some) Finale Episode!

I’m here to discuss and process what we just saw, so sit back and get ready to take a deep dive into the Finale and the pretty well-ran (for a change) Live Reunion Show that followed. Spoilers aplenty after the break, so proceed with caution!

Survivor Finale

That’s pretty much the question isn’t it? Tonight, the 34th (!!!) season of Survivor – the world’s greatest Reality Competition TV Show – will come to a close, where one of the six remaining “game changers” will be crowned the Sole Survivor and win a million dollars. Like we have grown accustomed to, tonight we will be treated with a two-hour finale episode, followed by the one-hour live reunion show, where hopefully Sia doesn’t show up this year.

And boy oh boy is there a lot of game still to be played. Not only are we down to six people, but there are still three Immunity Idols and the “Legacy Advantage” still in play heading into tonight. Get strapped in and ready, because we’re about to break down the chances of the remaining players left in the game and get you set for tonight’s big finish.

Survivor Game Changers

We are now down to just six players left in the game on Survivor: Game Changers, as two more unfortunate souls were added to the ever-growing jury this week. You know you’re close to the finale when there are more jurors than there are remaining contestants, and speaking of the finale, it is now just one episode away (it’s next week: May 24th…mark your calendars!).

I had the chance to speak with both of the players voted out this week, but before we proceed, you know the drill: Make sure only to read on if you have seen this week’s episode, as spoilers are to follow! Turn back now! If you want to get caught up, be sure to check out the Episode 13 recap here.

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

Well holy crap, that just happened! It was a rushed, whiz-bang episode of Survivor, featuring not one, but two Tribal Councils. Oh yeah, and it was also the last regular episode of the season before next week’s two-hour finale. The first Tribal of the evening was fairly straight-forward, but if you are like me, that last one left my head spinning. Let’s get to the bottom of what went down.

Be sure to read the fine print, as this week’s recap is non-transferable and can’t be stolen. Please only proceed if you have seen Episode 13 of Survivor: Game Changers. And while we WILL hit on all of the important developments, remember that this is more of a discussion and analysis and not a blow-by-blow account of how the episode played out.

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

We have reached the penultimate episode of Survivor: Game Changers and it looks to be a doozy. Heading into tonight, there are still eight contestants, three hidden Immunity Idols, a Legacy Advantage, and a “Steal-A-Vote” Advantage in play, so all signs point to a strong and dramatic finish.

That will be evident tonight, when not one but TWO players will be sent to the jury during the show’s two Tribal Councils. It is not a two-hour “double” episode, but will instead feature two Tribal Councils in the show’s normal one-hour time-slot. That means that you can expect a fast-pace tonight as we dwindle the numbers down to the final six players that will have made it to next week’s Survivor: Game Changers finale.
