They talk about the poetic justice served to the producers, the most undeserving winner in “Survivor” history, the terrible Edge twist in its finality, why Devens’ success may have ruined the castaways and the show, the gigantic drop-off from one season to the next, and who exactly is to blame. They also talk about burning clothes and barfing in their pants, so no, nothing went off the rails at all what are you talking about.
It’s the last episode of the season! Stay tuned until the end for an awesome announcement from Michelle.
They discuss whether Devens deserves credit for his attention-grabbing performances, what the quiet players must do right now, why this week was a breaking point for Edge, who Aurora even was, and whether the returner from Edge has any chance of winning. They also unveil full power rankings of “all” five remaining players.
Taylor Gaines is joined by his very own mother, Donna Gaines, for the family visit episode!
They debate whether Devens is annoying or charming, dissect why this season has been so chaotic, and study Jeff’s awkwardness around the concept of familial love. They also talk about Ron’s backfiring Reward win, the continued streak of terrible Reward food, who actually has a chance to win the game, whether the jury needs to chill the hell out, and more.
Then, Ty hops on to say some stuff about someone named Garrett before Taylor and his mom unveil their Power Rankings, preview Season 39’s theme, and remember old castaways currently on “The Amazing Race.”
They get Sunday’s thoughts on the season as a whole before talking way too much about Reem, debating whether “Survivor” is just a ladder of chaos now, discussing how small moves can be more important than big ones, determining the truth behind food squabbles, and sorting out whether things became way too lopsided all of a sudden.
Then, everything is settled during the week’s Power Rankings.
Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons eliminate every potential returning guest for this week’s podcast. They cover David’s futile efforts to stay alive, the rise of the newbies, Jeff talking about balls, Kelley’s immunity idol, THE WARDOG, “Survivor” Season 40, and, of course, basketball analogies.
