Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons convene to build big fires — and to discuss the Season 42 finale of “Survivor.” They do some classic bits, including questioning whether viewers can trust the jury, debating why the show feels worse than it used to be even when it’s pretty good, comparing the show to sports a bunch, and much, much more.
Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons return to break down the rise of a new Season 42 contender in this finale preview episode! They discuss how two players (unintentionally) orchestrated a classic “Survivor” moment, the formation of a stacked jury, what’s going on in Ty’s life (and with his fantasy “Survivor” team), and the entire season to date.
“On the Island” returns next week to talk about the Season 42 finale!
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.”

Another fun episode to revisit in the midst of the “Survivor” mini-offseason — our first interview with castaway Libby Vincek!
On this episode, Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons cover everything from Wendell’s seasons with the Queen of Ponderosa, from his power relationship with Dom to Laurel holding steady to Wild Card Donathan. Interesting insights to revisit in view of how the final vote turned out. They also talked with Libby about living at Ponderosa, being on TV, mentally breaking down on the island, and (*2018 ALERT*) determined once and for all whether it was Yanny or Laurel.
