First I want to say, the Reunion Show was better than usual. Yes, I agree, Devens did outplay everyone else and was the most deserving to win but I’m glad Chris won instead of any of the others left (Victoria, Gavin, Julie or Lauren). Chris certainly went about it in a way that gave Devens a fair chance to beat him with the fire challenge. I felt Chris had earned the win when he beat Devens at that point. Obviously the majority of the jury felt so too. Sad there are so many complaints on social media saying Chris didn’t deserve to win. He played a good smart game. And I hope they don’t do the Extinction Island concept ever again.

The coming season looks like it will be great. They have finished filming it. Love the idea of Boston Rob and Sandra coming back just to teach and advise the players. I read the two of them had to live on a separate island during the whole game and build their own shelter, as if they were actually playing, but they didn’t get any votes for who will win. Players were sent to their island and spent a short time with them and then went back into the game. I doubt their being part of the Island of Idols stayed secret for long with the players. We will see. No matter what Survivor does, I will continue to watch. As always....I wish Survivor was on all year long.

I loved the final tribal and am happy with Chris winning. I thought he and Deven both deserved to win.

Look forward to seeing Boston Rob again next season.

Joe was soooo close to getting back in!

Deven deserved the win so I was glad he got the $100,000 "trophy".

Of the 3 left at the end...Chris definitely deserved it. Like Deven's he pulled out all the stops when he got back.

The only "interesting" thing to come from Extinction was the difference in how the jury functioned as they knew so much about strategies clear to the end so their questions were much more targeted.

So next time we have another "new idea" with having Sandra & Rob there as teachers. Hmmmmm

I watched the first hour and then went to sleep. Today, knowing how disappointed I would be if Devens lost, I googled who won. With that information and the bulk of my disappointment behind me, I will watch the rest of the finale and the after show.

I have to admit Chris pulled out ALL the stops once he came back, and he was amazing.
I still think that Devens should have won it since he did so much more physical and social work. I hope they don't do Edge of Extinction again, but I guess that it was an exciting finish. I hope they have Devens play again.

I watched the first 2 hours of finale night but skipped the reunion hour. I looked up online who won today. I was so disappointed for Devens BUT it was an excellent strategy that Chris chose and I think he did deserve it in the end. I am so thankful for Devens being on the show this season...he made me laugh so many times with his antics...two fake idols, ha ha!! He was very entertaining. And yes, I hope they realize how awful an idea the edge of extinction was...terribly boring!

well we are at the end now and whoever comes back will make six players so my guess was half right. I rooting for Rick also just because he getting all the air time but that could be just to fool us. I just hope whoever comes back is on of the returning players.

Yes, it doesn’t seem fair for someone to get back in and win at this point. (Unless it’s Joe). And he—-or whoever it is —-will have to win all the Immunities to stay in again. A chance to have another player back in should have been at least in the middle of the numbers of jury members. That would have been better. Hope Extinction Island is extinct. Watching them all sit has been so bad.
What a Boring concept.

Unless they have a twist for how things will play out in the end. At this point I don't think it is right to allow an exiled player to win a challenge and come back. At least Deven got back in long enough ago that he's earned his second chance.

I think the thing we've missed by this Exile is having a Ponderosa for the jury. What's the point? It sounded like a fun twist in the beginning and it would have been if they had a challenge each episode so there was a revolving door OR had brought them all back as a team. I think they missed out on this piece of the game big time.

Using your logic, which is very sound, you're right, it's going to be a rush job with the finale next week......

I'm for Devens all the way!!! After this week's tribal...his gift of gab, finding the idol, winning immunity and getting the others to vote off Aurora, thinking he'd play his idol for Julie...ha ha ha ha ha!!!!! I loved it! So what if he got voted off...he got back in the game and has managed to stay, even though he's been the underdog.

What is the point of the edge of extinction group? If the finale is next week, that means Survivor is going to rush through the elimination of the remaining players...and the final tribal where the jury gets to question the final three. I hate that!!

Maybe it's just me but I now officially am disgusted with this Edge of Extinction twist.

I am a big reality show fan. On Top Chef, if you are voted off, then behind the scenes you do weekly challenges against other ousted players and the chef who wins every single week is the one who comes back to compete for that second chance. I just don't understand why a castmate on Survivor should be just hanging out on an island, not competing at ALL, and then one of them gets to come back.

I will be very upset if any of them ultimately win. Do you all feel the same?

Survivor fans, mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 15, 2019 as thats when host Jeff Probst will officially announce the winner of Survivor: Edge of Extinction. After a hard-fought Season 38 that featured the reality TV shows first-ever Extinction Island twist, in which every voted-out castaway was given the chance to return, one person will soon join the Survivor winners list. The two-hour finale will begin at 7:00 p.m. MT on May 15, followed immediately by the live reunion show which concludes promptly at 10:00 p.m.

So who will win this on-your-seat season of Survivor? As of this writing there are still seven players at the Vata camp: Victoria Baamonde, Ron Clark, Rick Devens, Aurora McCreary, Lauren OConnell, Julie Rosenberg and Gavin Whitson.

However, keep in mind that at least one of the shows voted-out castaways will return to the game from Extinction Island: Reem Daly, Chris Underwood, Aubry Bracco, Joe Anglim, Eric Hafemann, Julia Carter, David Wright, Kelley Wentworth and Dan Wardog DaSilva.

The only players with no shot at victory are the two who voluntarily left rather than putting up with the elements at the Edge of Extinction. Keith Sowell and Wendy Diaz rose the white mast together after Rick won the chance to return at the merge, which signaled a boat to come pick them up and take them home.

Survivor Season 38 began on a familiar note as four players from the past returned for another shot at the million dollar prize. Unfortunately, Aubry, Joe, David and Kelley were all soon voted out by the 14 brand new castaways who felt that theyd already had their shot. Might one of these returnees have the last laugh and win the upcoming Extinction Island challenge, which will put them back in the game? Or will a newbie end up prevailing?

Interesting thoughts regarding Victoria and I do think you are right on about her game play.

Looks like they have a fun challenge tomorrow for them. Now they just need to plan something for our other castaways.

I've love to see Victoria win. She's gotten an invisible edit, but I can still see she's doing a lot of under-the-radar and behind-the-scenes strategizing. She's doing a great job at being "in the know", as she's voted correctly every single time (except this last vote, but she knew that they were splitting votes/knew who would go home had Rick played his idol), and she's kept her name off the chopping block. That's some incredible good defense right there.

I actually don't want Rick to win -- he's already been voted out.....and although he's had a few idols/advantages, most of them were given to him from production/another player in the game, not ones he actually had to go out and find himself. And he's been wrong 5 of the 7 votes since the merge, and he was even wrong this past episode! Played his idol and voted for Aurora, thought Aurora would go home...when really Victoria, Gavin, Aurora, and Lauren were spearheading a vote-split to get either Rick or Ron out, depending on if Rick played his idol.

Rick is entertaining to watch, but he's a horrible strategist and he has no idea what's going on in the game around him.

Survivor was almost ruined for me... the East Coast had the first 15 minutes (loved ones) as well as the entire tribal, without any audio. Just background music, no dialogue. I am hoping to find the episode somewhere online just to watch those important parts. I still cried seeing the loved ones, lol, but I didn't get to hear their stories.

I was THRILLED to see how tribal ended for Ron, that was AWESOME!!!

I enjoyed that even he knew it was the smart move to make, but was hoping they would choose the stupid one. LOL

Are there more people on Extinction than in the game now? I sure hope they do something with those guys soon so I imagine when they were going through it they wondered how people would get a chance to get back in as the days just keep going by.

I agree....it would have offered more "trouble at home" with more players returning or even having challenges that could offer no winners to make the trip back to the game. Hopefully we will have a challenge on Wednesday.

Extinction Island has certainly been a disappointing concept. I was hoping for more challenges (at least every 3 players voted off) to get players back in the game. I hope those poor players all at least get to stay on the jury after all they’ve been through.

Can't believe Kelley did not play her idol since she had a suspicion she was begin targeted.

I am enjoying the special gifts from the Exile bunch when they find the advantages. Really worked for Devins that time!

I have a feeling we will see an Exile challenge next week. Too many of them to just keep adding more. And....how many people are going to end up on the jury this way?

I was disappointed there wasn’t a Challenge to get an Extinction Isle player back in the game. I do like their sending advantages from there to the others. Too much chatting on the show. Kelly was dumb to trust Wardog. Not a fan of his either.

Sue~I agree that David will be Rick's undoing if he doesn't disengage soon.

Barb~The fun of "new" twists does help the players try different things too. I think the "islanders" reward is not being completely out of the game.

Crazy Tribal! The players are making big changes in the way the game is played too.

Wish they’d give them some sort of reward perk
for being stuck on Extinction Isle. Boring!

And now there are four on the dreaded Edge of Extinction.

How will it play out now that this twist has been revealed? Will they challenge each week for a spot? Will they randomly have a challenge just to keep everyone on "Edge"?

I loved the attitude of the three left and they will definitely be fighters to regain a place! I think it would be fun if at some point one of them got to swap places through an advantage or the ability to choose a player "in the game" to be booted to Extinction. Options....

I've been watching this season, but haven't been posting here.
I'm enjoying edge of extinction......
I haven't picked a FAV, but it really seems cut throat this season.

Found this synopsis of last night’s show on line

“”Rick discovered something new in his bag. He whisked away into the woods and found an Idol broken in half, with a note stating that it cannot be used at the coming Tribal Council. He also had to give half the Idol to someone else. After that point, the Idol gains full power and becomes a regular Hidden Immunity Idol. “

When they’ve given these 2 piece idols out before ....only one person can use the 2 parts for Immunity. So it means whoever uses it—-one of the 2 who have the half’s or anyone else —each person with a half has to agree with the other or it’s no good.

There also was a Super Idol pair a few seasons ago that could be paired up and used After the votes were read.

Anyone else been having problems with pop up ads kicking them off SPARK today?

I agree that the 1/2 idol should have just been a whole idol immediately. Thankfully it worked out the first time through though. What was it's power as a whole? I'm not remembering.

I thought the others would remain on Extinction as the wording I'd been seeing was "one will say buh bye..." I am not sad to see Keith and Wendy quit the game. Now there is a very tough three-some to fight it all out and who will join them next......

That balancing challenge looked difficult for the length of time and the wind gusts sure didn't help. I was glad Lauren didn't win.

I know Sue, I’m trying to watch patiently because I love the show but I’m not surprised 2 of them quit.
I can understand why. They were probably figuring there was no way they’d get back in the game and why prolong the suffering. (And now the others are up against Joe). They are starving on Exile. The challenge to get back in the game was disappointing, as it was not a new one. Rick should have had an obvious Immunity to use for at least the first Tribal or what’s the point? I liked that the losers have another chance to get back in the game. Hated they made them cry first. I was surprised and liked it when they let the Exile players be part of the jury——that is new. No matter what I guess I’ll keep watching and hoping to be surprised in a good way.

I was not all that surprised that two of them quit. I was happy with who got back in the game, too.

Tomorrow should be a fun episode. A total merge. The castaways of Extinction will be brought back to challenge in front of the others and only ONE will be back in the game.

I'm enjoying the season overall--just wishing they would do more with Extinction. Maybe we'll be surprised with the plan...one can hope!

I agree that only one should be able to earn a way back. Anyone know what the package was they were told to practice with?

Yes, I am hoping next week has something good happening because so far I’m very disappointed with Extinction Island. I hoped they were doing more things to change up the game. Maybe all the “voted out players” could each choose and compete against a “not voted out player” to see who stays and who goes?

I hope it's just one. It seems highly unfair that they all come back...how will the game ever end?
Maybe all of them will come back to compete in one last challenge, like a fire challenge or something, and the winner of that gets to return. I'm finding this season to be so convoluted, and am not enjoying it much at all.

Wouldn't it be wild if they let the tribes themselves vote one person back in? That would be so random and of course they would choose the weakest player of them all.....

Beginning to find some favorites now that we are getting to know them better.

Reem -- she's doing just what the tribe didn't like about her...that mouth!

So....now that we have awareness that they are merging the tribes, do you think the Island Misfits will come back as a new tribe to play against them or will only one get the opportunity?

I was pretty surprised and disappointed in Reem, too. Now I don't want her to do well in the game anymore, LOL.

I grinned from ear to ear when the young dude went racing away once the maps were deciphered... Mommy Reem, thinking that all of the ducklings have to go "as a team" and then her baby flew the coop, LOL! He's the only one playing the game on that island!

I'm sick of this extinction twist. Once you're gone... just stay gone. Or do challenges on extinction island and bring back the ONE Survivor who conquered all of the other players, like they do when they bring someone back on Top Chef.

Wow, Reem that attitude of hers has to get heavy after awhile, I thought she might chill out a bit after having the opportunity to come back to the game. She flips out on Chris!!! She did give that advantage away...she knew they were looking for it and yet she says out loud "WHAT IS THAT?" instead of just going to get it herself. Duh.

Aubry, oh Aubry...so gullible. Hook, line, sinker.

I can't stand Wardog. Pathetic and stubborn and annoying...great to keep to the end lol since he's not doing anything.

I loved Wendy's reaction at the end...the best so far when reading about her new options.

Everything we do in life is a choice...I can't blame others for my thoughts or actions.

I agree..... the initial "this is an exciting twist" has turned into "ummm...just raise the flag already and go home." LOL It better be good whatever the plan is and it better gain some momentum soon. I still think it would be fun to send them back in as a 4th team now that they did not go with my idea of putting 3 with the new tribes they made.

That was so crazy that all the tribes remained the same with only Wendy not being with original members. That was lucky for her, but they aren't going to keep her because of the chickens. She was good for gaining intel easily though.

That looked difficult getting over that obstacle in the rain. So slick!

So good to hear your son is now enjoying Survivor. So glad there is someone on there this season he can relate to. I bet he has some great suggestions for the game. I have loved discussing the shows with my kids all the years we’ve been watching.
Yes, Sue. Extinction Island is Super boring. Looks to me like there’s not a lot happening there and so not a lot to show.

My son is in a class at high school for learning social skills due to having autism, etc. They are watching Survivor to have discussions of interactions, social cues.... They just started the first episode and he was so excited that a player had Tourettes. His good friend does as well so he knows some about it and was able to share more with some of the others when they were discussing Wendy in class. Of course, he doesn't know she wants to let the chickens go, but I can see him totally understanding it from an entirely different viewpoint.

I was also thinking they should get a handful of people on the isle, have them compete, and winner returns to play. They do that on Top Chef and I think it works for that show.
I think it's human nature not to want someone to have a second chance (or third or forth) in a game awarding such high stakes. I also had neutral feelings about Kelly and now don’t like her much. All of that eye rolling is not strategy lol.
I am not a fan of Wendy and I almost feel she is self sabotaging and wants to go home. I am happy to be wrong about that. Not good for game play when teammates are hungry and you are releasing their fuel!

So I'm just now caught up...I am curious what they're doing with the voted off "extinction island" players? Have a challenge among them to see who gets to stay????

I don't really remember any feelings towards Kelly on her season...very indifferent. Now, she is just rubbing me the wrong way and I can't put my finger on why!!! I like Joe, Aubry and David. But I've never been a fan of returning former players...they had their chance.

I also like the news guy, Rick? He's funny! And Wendy...you go girl, do your own thing!

And why did they vote out Chris???? Like voting out a strong guy is gonna help ya win...ugh. I guess it doesn't matter because it looks like there's a merge next week, yay!

Everything we do in life is a choice...I can't blame others for my thoughts or actions.

Interesting, Janet... that could work!

I had thought that each member who went to extinction isle would be kept alone to experience it like Reem had to. I bet it's far easier when you have other people to at least talk to.

Or..... there are 15 players left. Divide them by 3 evenly to 5 and then each new tribe gets one of the 3 on extinction isle.

As I said I’d hoped they’d come in as a group to make up another tribe but now I guess they will all come in at the merge.
Another good twist would be to have them vote or do a challenge to determine which would go back in one at a time.

Extremely STUPID vote! They got lucky with the upcoming swap though as they wouldn 't have had a chance to win a challenge with Chris gone.

Wendy....I can't believe she set the chickens free too! I fear these actions will come back to haunt her at some point. I am glad she was able to stay in the game even though that ankle looks painful.

So....any guesses on how the Edge of Extinction "team" will come back?

I would love to see the voted out players form a new 3rd Tribe they would keep together until the merge ..........and “Surprise” the others by coming back into the game when they scramble the remaining 2 Tribes.

Also would have been great to see the players on Edge of Extinction get perks instead of suffering over there.

I’m tired of watching players suffer and cry.

Yes, Beth. They’ve done this voting players out and giving them the chance to get back in the game several seasons before by doing challenges between 2 voted out players. Redemption Island is what it was called. The winner got to stay in the game and the losers went out of the game. The other players knew they had this opportunity and all the rest would watch these challenges.

I hope this season they will change it up.

Quote from Wikipedia
“Redemption Island, a twist formerly seen in Survivor: Redemption Island and Survivor: South Pacific, was utilized after a three-season hiatus.[1] In conjunction with the "Blood vs. Water" twist, remaining contestants were given the option to switch places with their loved one if their loved one was on Redemption Island. “

I think Wentworth is definitely in trouble. It would have been a great blindside, but they made the right choice for the team as a whole with challenges. I couldn't believe Keith needed help with that decision of whether to stay or be done. If you are there to play...play! Having said that....what a place to end up with choosing to remain in the game. Do you suppose they will have challenges between those who show up or do you think it truly is a point of "if you want off, raise the flag" and see if anyone lasts?

Very good first episode! Loved the "menu advantage", the team fight at the first tribal (seems early so she had to be abrasive) and now we wait to see how the Island of Extinction plays out!

Wentworth sure took a hard hit on the head in the challenge. For a bit I thought she might pass out.

Do you like how the split of return Survivor's went? Any newbies standing out as front runner possibilities?

I am just SO impressed by production.... how, after all of these seasons, they can still find new and exciting ways to change up the game... kudos to them!

I sort of liked the first one out. Let's see how they do with their second chance. They do not seem happy, LOL.

Joe- lose that mustache!
I am not in love with return players (unless they got hurt or otherwise had to leave the game early in their own season) but I have to admit I'm glad Aubrey is there. I like her.

Survivor: Edge of Extinction features 18 castawaysfour of whom are returneesdivided into two equal tribes, the Manu Tribe and the Kama Tribe. (Feb. 20)

This season presents a new layer to the game with the introduction of the island known as Edge of Extinction, which is where a person's will is severely tested to see what one is able to endure in order to become Sole Survivor.

Those who can withstand the emotionally and physically difficult challenge will be afforded a shot for one of them to get back in the game and continue their quest for the grand prize.

"Survivor continues to reinvent itself with new energy, and this season we've added a new secret game-changing twist," said Executive Producer and host Jeff Probst. "After being voted out, players will be faced with a decision to either go home or go to the Edge of Extinction where they will be pushed further than ever before for a chance to get back in the game."

So who are the new and returning castaways?

Ooooh I'm so excited! My husband and I recently got into the show and have been picking old seasons to watch in between the new seasons. Right now we are almost finished with Season 28: Cagayan. I think we'll have time to fit another one in before Extinction starts!

Survivor is about to reinvent how the game is played, with an assist from four returning players.

Fresh from closing out its most celebrated season in years, David vs. Goliath, the CBS reality franchise is gearing up for season 38 with a deadly new name and twist: Survivor: Edge of Extinction, set to launch on February 20. The season will break away from tradition with a fundamental format twist, the details of which are not being revealed by CBS at this time.

"For our 38th season, a new group of players will take on the greatest social experiment ever," Survivor executive producer and host Jeff Probst says in an official teaser for the season, "and a new layer to the game will push them further than ever before."

While the Survivor powers-that-be are staying tight-lipped about the specific game mechanics involved with Extinction, they are pulling the curtain back on the identities of some of the competitors four of whom are very familiar quantities to the fandom. The lineup includes:

Kelley Wentworth, the fifth person voted out of the family-fueled Survivor: San Juan del Sur, only to come roaring back to life as the fourth-place finisher of Survivor: Cambodia. Alternately known by the nickname "Underdog Wentworth," Kelley's signature move in Cambodia was knocking out Pearl Islands returnee Andrew Savage with nothing more than three votes and a masterfully played hidden immunity idol.

Joe Anglim, also known as "Joey Amazing." The long-haired challenge beast made his Survivor debut during the 30th season, Worlds Apart, and returned one season later alongside Wentworth on Survivor: Cambodia. (Indeed, Joe and Kelley competed as a team on CBS' Candy Crush, where they won a combined $100,000 prize.) Across his two previous seasons, Joe won a total of 10 individual challenges, and was immune for a record-breaking 29 days during Survivor: Cambodia.

Aubry Bracco, yet another two-time Survivor veteran, previously appearing on Survivor: Kaoh Rong and Survivor: Game Changers , where she landed in second and fifth place, respectively. Ahead of Edge of Extinction, Aubry has played a combined total of 76 days across her two seasons, surviving until the final episode on both occasions. While the fire surrounding her polarizing defeat in season 32 has died down in the intervening years, Aubry nevertheless heads into Edge of Extinction with her eye on changing the narrative.

David Wright, the fourth-place finisher from Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, and the third player from that season to return for another shot at the Sole Survivor title. (His former competitors Zeke Smith and Michaela Bradshaw both competed on Survivor: Game Changers.) A prolific idol hunter as well as the architect of the most convincing fake idol in Survivor history, David wants to set the bar for some new Survivor firsts including one incredibly entertaining idea that cannot be revealed at this time, but will be utterly ridiculous if he lasts long enough to pull it off.

The four veterans will compete against 14 brand new Survivors, including two players identified in the official Edge of Extinction trailer: Rick Devens, a morning news anchor for WGXA in Georgia, and blue-haired Wendy Diaz, aka "Big Wendy," a nickname she wears proudly and literally. (Not a joke Wendy has a necklace that says "Big Wendy" on it.)

Will Rick, Wendy and the other rookie Survivors hold a candle against the combined veteran powers of Kelley, Joe, Aubry and David? And what's up with the Extinction twist, anyway? The answers will manifest in the weeks ahead!
