Survivor Game Changers

History was made on Survivor Wednesday night with a Survivor “first,” as we witnessed one of the most chaotic and unpredictable Tribal Councils in the show’s history. It followed a huge twist that sent two competing tribes to Tribal Council – the same tribal council – where one person was voted off in dramatic fashion.

There is always someone on the receiving end of any twist the Survivor producers introduce, and this wasn’t an easy one to swallow given how things went down at Tribal. Caution, as spoilers from this week’s episode are to follow!

The Tables Have Turned

For those who might have thought that Survivor: Game Changers was off to a slow start, well, all of your prayers have been answered. Last night’s unexpected thrill-ride of an episode was just as entertaining as it was shocking. It leaves me completely flabbergasted (always wanted to use that word) that 34 Seasons and over 500 episodes later, the game can still create “Survivor Firsts,” but that is exactly what happened. A seemingly cool “twist” led to more than the Survivor producers could have hoped for.

There is LOTS to get to, so here is your last spoiler warning, as we will be discussing the events of Episode 3 of Survivor. So grab your coffee (#coffeeisforclosers, after all) and get ready for a recap that will hopefully be a little less chaotic than that epic Tribal Council was.

The Tables Have Turned

Last week’s episode of Survivor gave us an early game-changing surprise when it split the remaining 18 contestants into three new tribes, just six days into the game. For tonight’s Episode 3 (or 4 if you consider the two-hour Premiere as two episodes), the producers have another twist up their sleeves: There will be not just one, but TWO Tribal Councils tonight…yes it is double the Survivor fun crammed into just one normal hour.

So what can we expect heading into tonight’s episode? Let’s go over what you may be able to anticipate as we barrel towards tonight’s new crazy episode. And in case you missed last week’s episode, here is the Episode 2 Recap as well as the Exit Interview with the contestant that went home last week.

Survivor Game Changers

Survivor: Game Changers saw the game change in a major way this week when an unexpected tribe swap led to the creation of a brand new third tribe. As usual, when Survivor introduces new twists, it works to the benefit of some players, and to the disadvantage of others.

Sadly, we saw the game’s third victim get their torch snuffed during Episode 2, and we’re about to bring you our full interview with this person. Caution, as spoilers from this week’s episode are to follow! Turn back now! And if you want to get caught up, be sure to check out the Episode 2 Recap here.

Survivor Jackpot

If last week’s double-episode premiere of “Survivor: Game Changers” was any indication, then this group is here to play. But despite how good of a player one may deem him or herself, luck always is a major factor in shaping how a season goes. Not only that, but the game itself will usually contain enough twists and surprises to keep most players humble.

Last night’s episode of Survivor not only gave us the first big “game twist” of the season, but it also included the first hidden Immunity Idol find. Add to that, we learned at Tribal Council that in a season of game-changers, “strength” is in the eye of the beholder. Get ready to grab this goat by the horns – a male goat, not a baby or mama goat please – and let’s get to recappin’!

Survivor Jackpot

Survivor: Game Changers is off to a promising start after last week’s dramatic, explosive, and entertaining two-hour premiere. Survivor – the longest-running Reality Competition Show on television – celebrated its 500th total episode, which happened to be the first episode of its 34th season. We of course were treated to normal “premiere” stuff, like getting caught back up with all of the returning players, watching initial alliances take shape and getting a feel for the new tribes. But do not get too comfortable, because the show is about to switch things up already.

In case you missed the premiere, here is the Episode 1 Recap as well as the Exit Interviews with the two contestants that went home last week.

The Stakes Have Been Raised

Not everybody is a fan of returning player seasons, and I get the reasoning. There are so many people out there just clamoring for an opportunity to play Survivor, why not give new faces a chance? And while that’s a fair argument, there’s a special joy in getting to watch your favorite players play the game again, or to watch legends go head-to-head. These sort of showdowns have produced some of the absolute best moments in the game’s history, and unarguably some of the very best seasons (Fans vs. Favorites and Heroes vs. Villains come to mind). As Survivor kicked off its 34th Season Wednesday night – “Survivor: Game Changers,” featuring 20 returning contestants – we were given another such epic showdown, between the self-proclaimed King and Queen of Survivor, which resulted in a somewhat shocking and satisfying start to what looks to be a promising season.

There’s a lot to get to, so get caught up first by reading my previous article, “Survivor: Game Changers – Everything You Need to Know” and then be warned that if you read any further than this very paragraph, that the events of the Premiere Episode will get spoiled for you. You’ve been warned! Now like a bug caught in Sandra’s hair, let’s let loose this Recap!

Survivor

Season 33 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!
