Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Chris Noble:

Each season of Survivor, we expect to see a new batch of “Survivor firsts,” even as we find ourselves over halfway through Season 36. But I think it’s safe to say that nobody – and I mean nobody – could have predicted this Survivor first: That following a merge episode – typically the best and most exciting episode of each season – a rap video starring the first member of the Survivor jury would outshine and overshadow all of the episode’s main events. Well my friends, it has happened. A Survivor first indeed.

Despite pleading with Chris Noble to set down his pen – or at least use his eraser – Wendell tried to do us all a favor when, while casting his vote, called Chris “trash…at rapping,” and urged him to give up his budding career. But if there’s anything we’ve learned about Chris during his time on Survivor, it’s that he’s going to march to the beat-box of his own drum.

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Bradley Kleihege: “There Was A Method To My Madness”

They say that Survivor is a game of numbers, but if it were that simple it would be played on paper. What it is, is the greatest social experiment ever designed, and time and time again we see human behavior – for better or worse – on display. With Bradley Kleihege, the 26-year-old law student originally from Haslett, MI, we were reminded of just how difficult it is to “not let your true self” shine through in a grueling game like this, because some of the ugly, “villainous” behavior that we saw from Bradley was apparently his authentic self.

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s James Lim:

If reversing curses were so easy, I’m sure there would be less curses in the first place, right? This season on Survivor: Ghost Island, the motto has not necessarily been “Outplay, Outwit, Outlast” and his instead been replaced with the catchy but over-used “reverse the curse.” But just as this current crop of players struggles to get out of the shadows cast by mistakes of Survivors’ past, some “curses” are just unavoidable. For example, every time the game has introduced a tribe swap or tribe shake-up – or every time Probst has uttered the famous phrase “drop your buffs” – someone has gotten their torch snuffed. Every. Single. Time.

This time around, that unfortunate “drop your buff” victim was James Lim, the 24-year-old Business Analyst from Los Angeles, who found himself on the minority alliance on the Malolo Tribe, following the most recent tribe shake-up. And the Malolo Tribe is not a place you want to find yourself in general, having now appeared at five of the season’s six Tribal Councils.

Exclusive – Survivor’s Stephanie Johnson: ‘I Feel Like Ghost Island Let Me Down’

Stephanie Johnson was doomed from the moment that I picked her to win the game after the premiere episode of Survivor: Ghost Island. She may have come across as more than just a bit eccentric in her pre-season interviews, but once on the beach, she looked to be one of the most dangerous players this season. Of course, it takes more than a good strategy and social skills in the game of Survivor. Stephanie didn’t have much luck out there, and on this week’s episode her luck finally ran out.

Exclusive – Survivor: Ghost Island’s Brendan Shapiro:

To win Survivor, there is always an element of luck and chance, but for 41-year-old phys-ed teacher Brendan Shapiro, the odds stacked against him were just too much. His fate was determined ultimately by Michael, who chose incorrectly as to whom he should use his Immunity Idol on.

Survivor: Ghost Island: Morgan Ricke

The tribe swap is one of those exciting moments each season in Survivor, where the course of the game completely shifts. For some, it’s a lifeline that saves them from having been in a terrible position on their old tribe. For others, it’s a not-so-subtle reminder of how much luck is needed to get far into the game, as by the luck-of-the-draw, some players are knocked from their position of power and are left trying to figure out their next move on the bottom of their new tribe.

One thing is for sure though: Somebody gets voted-out after every tribe swap, meaning that the tribe swap always claims a victim. This season, that victim was 29-year-old marine animal trainer, Morgan Ricke, who pretty much nobody thought was in any danger this week.

Jacob and Gonzalez discuss what went wrong on Survivor: Ghost Island

It was a “two-fer” on the first night of Survivor: Ghost Island, as in we got two eliminated contestants for the price of one. Season 36 started off with a lot of confusion and complication, but by the end of the two hours one thing was clear: This season looks to be a good one.

But when the dust settled, two Orange Tribe members – Stephanie Gonzalez and Jacob Derwin – became the first victims of the Ghost Island spirits. If you missed any of the action, you can catch up with our Episode 1 and 2 Recap, as well as checking out the Podcast below.
