Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 4 Recap: The Charmpocalypse

It was two for the price of one this week on Survivor, as we witnessed two people leaving the game. One person exited unexpectedly and the second boot was an unexpected person. There was a lot to digest in-between these elimination book-ends, so let’s get to it!

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 3 Recap: His Own Worst Enemy

It took two episodes to finally get to Tribal Council, but it was well worth the wait last week when we were given our first blindside of the season. The shocking vote-out of Jessica last week though, only seemed to ignite a fire in some of the other players, and it led to an emotional aftermath at the David Tribe. But like any good season of Survivor, there’s enough drama to go around, and the Goliaths had their fair share tonight as well. It was another shocking Tribal Council – and a shocking result – proving once again how far along the game has evolved and what exactly a tribe looks for in its early targets.

Exclusive Interview: Survivor: David vs. Goliath’s Jessica Peet:

It definitely was the first “#blindside” of the season, if you’re not counting that wave that blindsided Pat Cusack last week. Two episodes in, and we finally got to Tribal Council, but for Jessica Peet – the youngest contestant this season at age 19 – fire didn’t represent life, it represented a quick exit from the game just six days in.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Episode 2 Recap: Information Is The Advantage

They’ve weathered the storm (quite literally), but for the second straight week, the victim on Survivor: David vs. Goliath never saw it coming.

Exclusive: Survivor: David vs. Goliath’s Pat Cusack:

When it rains, it pours…literally, when speaking of the Premiere Episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath. While going through casting, auditioning and all of the logistical considerations that one must go through in order to finally arrive on the show, it is often a dream come true for many, to FINALLY make it on Survivor. But too often, the show reminds players and viewers that while this is all for entertainment, it is definitely real. One contestant found this out the hard way in one of the most shocking exits the game has ever witnessed.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Premiere Episode Recap: A Bad Break

What’s up my Survivor people? It’s so great to be back covering the show that I love, and what an explosive, promising start to Season 37! The early buzz is that people are loving the potential of this cast, and if nothing else, the “David vs. Goliath” theme of the season has created some early players to root for, and some to root against, simply by how they were categorized out of the gate. So much to get to, so – as seems to be the main slogan on Big Brother 20 this season – LET’S GOOOOO!

I bring up Big Brother not just because its 20th Season Finale followed the Survivor: David vs. Goliath Premiere (and that I’m a huge fan of that show as well), but Survivor managed to steal Big Brother’s motto during the first episode: Expect the unexpected. We’re used to hearing Julie Chen, er, Julie Chen Moonves utter this phrase, but we’re not quite accustomed to hearing Jeff Probst say it. Well he did by the end of the episode, because the way this one ended was one of the most shocking right-turns the game has ever seen, so much so that the biggest event of the night didn’t even occur on camera…and that’s pretty hard to pull off considering the number of cameras this show uses 24/7. But “the unexpected” ending, in the words of contestant Gabby Pascuzzi: “Fits so perfectly, in the worst way,” with the “underdogs vs. favorites” theme of this season. Expect more of the unexpected in the weeks to come.

One thing you CAN expect though is this little disclaimer before we dive in: As I do at the beginning of every Recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Premiere Episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath, so if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add too that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap, and is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Survivor: David vs Goliath Has Arrived! Here Is Everything You Need To Know About Season 37

Survivor is back baby! CBS has finally unveiled the 20 new contestants that will compete on the show’s 37th (!!!) Season, called “Survivor: David vs. Goliath.” The 90-minute premiere episode is just three weeks away, on Wednesday, Sept 26th at 8 pm (EST), and I’m more excited than ever!

It’s true: Whether you are a casual fan of the show or a die-hard fan like me, you must admit that Survivor is still the best thing going when it comes to competition-based Reality TV. A “bad” season of Survivor is still better than almost anything else on TV because the format of the show is simply untouchable. It always feels like Christmas when a new season of Survivor comes closer, and trying to figure out where this season will rank if all part of the pre-season fun. Will the theme of “David vs. Goliath” be a giant-sized bust? Will it rank among the all-time great seasons? Or is it destined to fall somewhere in the middle, another “ho-hum” season of TV’s greatest show?

We’ll soon find out! But as we patiently await its official return on Sept 26th, let’s take a look at everything we know about the upcoming season, including just who will be throwing their names into the hat for their chance to win a million dollars, and the title of Sole Survivor.
