Alec Christy seemed to have one major goal in mind when he signed up to compete on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur: Doing better than his brother, Drew.  That goal he definitely achieved having made it deep into the game and earning a spot on the jury.  Now that his time in the game is done, Alec said in our interview that he would have done a few things differently post-merge if he could do it over again.  He also explained if he was truly flirting with Jaclyn and explained why he could have won the game if his end-game strategy would have worked out.

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Interview — Wes Nale Gains 12 Pounds Within Day Of Elimination

December 2, 2014 02:35:10 by Ryan Haidet

It has to be a Survivor record.  When Wes Nale was voted off Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, he gained 12 pounds in 24 hours by eating everything in sight at post-elimination Ponderosa.  It’s a hard number to fathom, but when you’re hungry, who the hell cares, right?  I must say, it was a big bummer for me to see Wes get voted off.  He was my pick to win, but he was blindsided amid Idol insanity at Tribal Council.  During my interview with Wes (delayed due to the Thanksgiving holiday), the firefighter explained how their plan to eliminate Jon fell apart, revealed which two players he says don’t stand a chance at winning and explained how he and his father, Keith, landed a spot on the show together.  Enjoy!

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Interview — Josh Canfield Wouldn’t Have Taken His Boyfriend To The Final Tribal Council

It’s nice talking to a Survivor superfan that actually saw their dream come true with a spot on the show.  Josh Canfield is one of those fans.  In my interview with Josh, who is the first member of the jury on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, this savvy strategist revealed he didn’t actually want his boyfriend (and fellow castaway), Reed Kelly, to go to the end of the game with him.  Instead, Josh says the two were prepared to vote each other off to better their odds of winning the $1 million prize.  We didn’t just talk strategy, though.  Josh couldn’t contain his excitement when I asked him to explain how he and Reed were picked for the show.  Plus, Josh gushed about the former castaways he can’t wait to meet and reveals who he geeked out the most over seeing in person for the first time.  By far, this is my favorite interview from this entire season.  Enjoy!

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Interview — Jury Possibility Was Factor In Julie McGee Quit

November 6, 2014 02:37:30 by Ryan Haidet

Julie McGee’s decision to quit Survivor: San Juan Del Sur is something that didn’t set well with many frustrated fans.  Forums and social media were ignited with angry commentary about her opting to walk out of the game when they would do anything for a spot on the show.  I have been a loyal Survivor fan since the show’s inception, and I’ve covered 16 live finales (read one of my behind-the-scenes reports HERE).  I know way too much about this show.  That being said, every time somebody quits Survivor, it drives me insane.  I can’t stand it at all.  But after interviewing Julie, she revealed a bit more about the timing of her quit and how it was connected to production’s timing of the jury forming.  This is a very interesting interview.  Check it all out inside!

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Recap — The Merge Brings Stupid Tribe Name

November 5, 2014 07:03:36 by Ryan Haidet

huyopa-merge-tribe-survivor-san-juan-del-sur-cbs

I realize there is so much more to Survivor than the tribe names.  But I always look forward to the creativity of the castaways when it comes to creating their new moniker.   I loved Rob Mariano’s lies behind “Murlonio” and Erik Reichenbach’s nonsensical deceit with the meaning of “Dabu.”  Those were fun.  Unfortunately, this season may have the worst merge name in the show’s 29-season history: #Huyopa.  Yes, I think this is probably dumber than “Dangrayne” from Survivor: Philippines. #Huyopa, which is the unoriginal combination of the two original tribe names — Hunahpu and Coyopa — actually incorporates the hashtag.  Ugh.  Even worse?  The merge color is tough to discern from the original Hunahpu blue.  At least it’s not another black buff.  Yes, I know, I’m a childish nerd.  No need to send the hate mail.  The episode didn’t improve much, either, as one castaway made an extremely selfish move that all hardcore fans hate.  Find out who went home — and see the horrendous merge tribe flag the castaways painted.  And yes, #Huyopa is in all caps.  Ugh.  The entire episode left me feeling like I only have crumbs in a cookie jar when I’ve got a full glass of milk.
