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!
Finally! Survivor: San Juan Del Sur has found its groove. After last week’s strong episode where Jeremy was blindsided, this Thanksgiving Eve treat was filling enough to satisfy a hungry appetite more than any turkey and stuffing. From a fantastically fun Immunity challenge to a chaotic Tribal Council, I’m thankful for this great episode! Check out my complete recap to find out who got voted off!
His elimination was the most jaw-dropping moment on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur so far. Fans hit forums moments after the show wrapped Wednesday night to chat about what the hell went down as Jeremy Collins was booted out of Nicaragua. In our exit interview with Jeremy, he admitted that he had no idea his torch was about to be snuffed. He also revealed why Jon’s move to target him was a bad decision. Enjoy!
Wow! Finally! A blindside on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur that rocked Nicaragua. It was a brilliant moment that left tons of jaws on the dusty Tribal Council floor — and I’m sure millions were scraping their jaws up throughout America. Who was the victim of this beautiful blindside? You will have to dive into this article to find out all the details.
Survivor: San Juan Del Sur Interview — Josh Canfield Wouldn’t Have Taken His Boyfriend To The Final Tribal CouncilNovember 13, 2014 02:29:37 by Ryan Haidet
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!
After last week’s disappointing episode with a quitter and stupid merge name, Survivor: San Juan Del Sur picked up steam this week. Thankfully. From an amazingly exhaustive Reward challenge to a close Immunity battle, everything (well, most things) was a big improvement. Find out how everything played out and who fell victim at a big blindside at Tribal Council inside this recap…
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!
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.
He started out the game aggressively outspoken, which quickly made him a target. But Dale Wentworth survived numerous Tribal Councils on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur and proved he was quite the strategist. Shortly before he was voted out of the game, Dale made a brilliant move to convince Jon he found a hidden Immunity Idol. Although his pitch to give the Idol away should he survive the next vote was fantastic, Dale ultimately fell victim to the vote right after his daughter. In our interview with Dale, he dished his unfiltered thoughts on Missy and Baylor, reacted to Nadiya calling him a “loser” in her exit interviews and explained why he considered quitting the game for Kelley.
Something happened on tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur that hasn’t taken place since season two. Just like in Australia, the Hunahpu tribe was forced to sacrifice their camp — including some of their tools, tarp and pillows — in exchange for extra food. It was a stiff penalty as a result of their poor rationing, but Hunahpu didn’t hesitate at all. ”There has never been a tribe in the history of Survivor that has needed as much help as you guys have and only 14 days in,” Jeff Probst told the tribe before they tore camp down. That moment was just a morsel of the gooey goodness dished out. See what else went down and who was voted off inside this recap…
