The Know-It-Alls Recap Survivor: Millennials vs Gen X Episode 3
Rob Cesternino (@RobCesternino) and Stephen Fishbach (@stephenfishbach) aka the Survivor KnowItAlls are back to recap the episode and answer your questions LIVE! Join us after every episode of Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X for our weekly recap on Survivor Know-It-Alls.
Did Gen X Jessica Lewis Make the Wrong Move Voting out Paul?
In this week’s episode of Know-It-Alls, both Rob and Stephen started off agreeing with one another. Rob and Stephen both thought that the Gen-X team made a bad move and both were shocked over Paul Wachter’s early departure. Stephen believed that Gen X Jessica Lewis, Sunday Burquest and Lucy Huang undeniably made the worst decision of the episode. Stephen also mentioned how Ciandre “CeCe” Taylor was a good decision for the tribe. Rob agreed Stephen and raised concerns about the six-man alliance crumbling over what seemed to be a misunderstanding.
Stephen believed that Paul Wachter shot himself in the foot when he not only decided to destroy any possibility to have a male only alliance, but he also failed to keep his promise to Jessica and give her an advanced warning. Rob agreed that Paul Wachter needed to clarify what was going on to Jessica, but admitted that it would be tough and possibly cause Paul Wachter to be targeted regardless. To further illustrate his point, Rob recalled a similar situation he was in, during his glory days in Survivor Amazon. Both believed that Paul Wachter wouldn’t last long in Survivor, due to the fact that he made himself out to be a huge target. Rob and Stephen also mentioned how untrustworthy David Wright is, telling Taylor Lee Stocker that he would vote out people from his own tribe. Stephen issued a cautionary tale, stating that breaking trust isn’t something a Survivor cast member can comeback from.
Millennials Have Drama of Their Own
Later on in the show, Rob rejected the notion that Millennials go over the balance beams a certain way and again recalled his glory days on Survivor, this time on All-Stars. The argument was made over whether or not it was truly because Millennials crossed the balance beams a certain way or because they were younger and quicker. Disappointment set in for both Rob and Stephen, who were expecting a greater twist in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X. Both were in agreement that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches shouldn’t be called a twist in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X.
Zeke Smith and Hannah Shapiro’s beach scene was a favorite moment for both of the hosts. Rob expressed how he has experienced that scene personally and Stephen sympathized with Zeke Smith’s inability to get in a word. Adam Klein’s attempt to sway Michaela Bradshaw wasn’t a popular decision for Rob, who thought he pushed too hard. The difference between a logical and an emotional argument was discussed, with both hosts agreeing that they believe more cast members will respond more to the emotional argument than the logical argument.
The Emergence of Ken McNickle and the new Gen X Alliance
Lastly, both discussed their favorite cast members on Survivors: Millennials vs. Gen-X. Stephen and Rob both agreed to have Ken McNickle, Chris Hammons, Bret LaBelle and David Wright as their favorites to win. The two Know-It-Alls then answered your questions, believing it was Jessica’s fear that decided the vote, confirming that they use “you” in text, and answering whether or not they believe Adam Klein got his MeUndies with the RHAP code.
Finally, the Survivor KnowItAlls answer your questions and Stephen debates who to give the Fishy too.
