This week I’m supplying a special treat in advance of tonight’s second episode of “Survivor: Kaoh Rong”: A podcast interview with XfinityTV.com’s, Gordon Holmes. You can listen to the podcast by playing the video at the BOTTOM of this page or at this link here.
Gordon is one of the most popular and important Survivor writers out there. He is the co-founder and curator of the Survivor Hall of Fame and has covered the show for several seasons as one of the top press members. His weekly “Survivor Power Rankings” pits him against recent Survivor players as they rank current players each week, and they have become a must-follow activity for Survivor fans as they progress through the season.
It’s become tradition for me to chat with Gordon towards the beginning of each season, so following last week’s Premiere Episode of Season 32, Gordon and I talked about all things Survivor: From the three, most recent Survivor Hall of Fame Inductees (not sure who they are? Listen to the Podcast!), to our thoughts on the Second Chance season that just finished (what were our thoughts? Listen to the Podcast!), to Gordon’s now-famous “predictions,” or more accurately, his curse that he bestows upon a contestant each year. We discuss each current contestant of Survivor: Kaoh Rong in detail, our initial impressions based on the Premiere Episode, and how the hyped-up medical evacuations will affect this season. That, and we discuss the “super idol” that will come into play this season as well. Not sure what the “super idol” is? You guessed it: Listen to the Podcast!
Here too, is the official synopsis of tonight’s all-new episode, straight from CBS:
Episode 2 – “Kindergarten Camp” – One castaway goes to great heights to retrieve an idol, and on the beauty tribe, two castaways become quick friends. Also, immunity and rewards are on the line at a taxing physical challenge, on SURVIVOR, Wednesday, Feb. 24 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Analysis. Listen to the Podcast! (Here is the link one more time for you).
