May 17, 2014 - RHAP contributor Michel Trudeau recaps this week's episode of Survivor Cagayan, The Straw That Broke The Camel's Back, and tells the story behind the edit.
May 11, 2014 - Hearing Jeff say that Spencer was once more outside the group, but that it wasn’t such a bad thing should delight me since it goes directly to the themes that we have followed since the first episode, but it actually worried me. What if that whole storyline had been used as the distraction, as the lure that will keep the audience riveted to what could actually turn out to be a very predictable result?
May 3, 2014 - After hearing Spencer’s confessional, there’s not much to add about the story at this stage. It’s a mind game between Tony and Spencer and now that “the inexperienced kid” figured out he had to work on Tony instead of against him, he won a key battle.
April 26, 2014 - The spy shack had only been a subject of derision in an early episode and had since been forgotten, but we finally saw its usefulness. Tony didn’t exactly hear the biggest secret though and Jefra had already expressed her concerns during the discussion they had the previous night. So, was this scene shown to feature Tony’s ingenuity or to further mock him?
April 20, 2014 - We can assume that Tony’s action in this episode will have ripple effects for the rest of the season. Will all five of his alliance fall because of him? RHAP contributor Michel Trudeau explains.
April 12, 2014 - The care Kass received from the editors tells me that she will strike once more, but I also think that she is overly optimistic about players getting over it and we know that the two present jurors won’t be voting for her. It seems certain however that the jury will have the final say on her move.
April 5, 2014 - When we get such an unexpected event, we have to take time to reassess the whole story, see if the hints we have gathered point us in a new directions or if there are hints that we missed.

March 29, 2014 - There is a trend that sticks out this season I think more so than in any of the previous ones. We have had many players realizing they were on the bottom of the pecking order at one point or another.
March 22, 2014 - At this time of year, everyone is trying to find the Cinderella that will fit in their brackets. Likewise, we are witnessing Survivor's version of the Cinderella story once more.
The Recap Jeff said that this season has been anything but predictable. On the Brawn tribe, Tony went from playing alone to building several different alliances… (We saw him talking to Trish and Sarah) … Even lying to a fellow cop to get his way. (We heard Tony explaining that he was lying to get […]
Jeff said: “At the beauty Tribe, LJ was suspicious of Morgan… …while Morgan suspected she and Brice were up against an alliance of 4: LJ and Jeremiah and Alexis and Jefra. They went to work on recruiting Jeremiah (we hear Brice saying that country folks have to stick together) Meanwhile, at the Brawn tribe, […]
During Jeff’s introduction to the new direction taken this season, Spencer had the 1st confessional: “In 2010, I entered the world open chess tournament and I tied for first. I certainly don’t look diabolical or like a genius, both of which I am.” David was next: “I’m president of the Miami Marlins…” Kass followed: “I’m an attorney and my […]
The story has been reduced to Tyson’s adventure. If you aren’t convinced, I’d suggest you read the recap again. It was only about Tyson. So, the question is simple: Is the story showing us why Tyson loses or was it a panegyric to his skills?
With Gervase repeatedly putting his foot in his mouth, Monica being practically irrelevant and Ciera having no shot at beating either big guy even with that bold move, it’s come down to only two possibilities: Either Tyson or Hayden wins. Which one will it be?
In a season where one episode was titled “One-Armed Dude and Three Moms”, it was very interesting to see that all the moms left in the game had huge roles to play…as did the “One-Armed Coconut Bandit”!
