Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons return to preview a brand new group of castaways for “Survivor: Edge of Extinction.” They discuss the season’s mysterious theme, profile each of the 18 players, and make their official Final Three and winner picks.
Taylor Gaines is joined by Reality Blurred‘s fearless leader, Andy Dehnart, to take stock of the television show ‘Survivor’ prior to its upcoming season. They talk about the surprising success of ‘David vs. Goliath,’ their fears surrounding ‘Edge of Extinction,’ and just how long they think the show can go.
Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons are joined by Season 37’s Carl Boudreaux for their first postseason interview of the winter. Carl talks frankly about his season versus previous ones, why he thinks he was cast on the show, how easy it is to get drunk on “Survivor,” and how he feels about his edit. They also address Jeff’s comments about his downfall, the real-life Angelina, his rivalry with Elizabeth, how his signature move came together, representation on “Survivor,” and life lessons you can learn from “The Bachelor.”
