Exclusive Exit Interviews with the Final Three from Survivor: Winners At War

There can only be one winner, even on a season full of them. “Survivor: Winners at War” came to an explosive close on Wednesday, and a winner was indeed crowned. The chaotic, overly aggressive, super-strategist, known for building Spy Shacks, Bunkers and Nests on the island, Tony Vlachos became the Sole Survivor of Season 40 and the show’s second-ever two-time winner (behind Queen Sandra). He outwitted, outplayed and outlasted 19 other winners to grab the record 2 million dollar prize and sole bragging rights as the best of the best. Tony earned it, that’s for sure.

But on his heels were two other former winners, who took totally different paths to the end. First there’s Michele Fitzgerald, the only winner to come out of “Winners at War” having never had her torch snuffed…ever. She was an underdog most of the game, and fought an uphill battle to try to earn respect from the other contestants, and from the fan-base, many of whom called her first season win “undeserving.”  Natalie Anderson on the other hand, was the first person voted out this season on Day 2, and she endured 33 days at The Edge of Extinction, winning her way back into the game at Final Six and then protecting herself to the end with Immunity Idols found and bought.

It was epic, it was exciting, and it’s all over…other than we still need to get answers to many of the nagging questions that still remain! Tony, Michele and Natalie were all on The FilmSurvivor Podcast following Wednesday’s Three-Hour Finale, the link to which is beyond the following “Continue Reading” link below.

Exclusive Survivor: Edge of Extinction Interviews With the Final 3 and Reem

When asked by CBS as to who I wanted to interview at season’s end, the real answer was: Everyone. In a “normal” season of Survivor, I would interview each and every contestant, week-by-week, as they were voted out of the game. But when CBS introduced the theme and twist of Survivor: Edge of Extinction, the format did not lend itself to those traditional weekly exit interviews. So needless to say, there is a lot to discuss now that we’ve reached the end.

Just in case you missed it or are not caught up, please take a read through my passionate (and sometimes angry) response to last night’s Season 38 Finale Recap.

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.

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.

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.

It’s never a good thing to get voted out of Survivor, but it’s an absolute nightmare to be known as the dreaded “first boot.” As Survivor: HHH (Season 35) got underway Wednesday night, one of the eighteen newbies had to go, but adding insult to injury, we barely even got to see the person during the jam-packed, over-stuffed 60-minute Premiere.
