One unexpected and fascinating moment from this week’s tribal council was when Kellee challenged Jamal’s theory of a women’s alliance. “I find this idea of a woman’s alliance so… sexist—Sorry, I know that you didn’t mean it that way—It’s really offensive to be like, ‘Oh, the women outnumber the men. They can just take over.’ […]
Take it away, Reem…
Survivor’s latest twist has been met with a lot of apprehension. It’s Redemption Island without the population limit. You leave the game of Survivor, and you begin a whole other endurance challenge… can you wait out a much harder set of conditions indefinitely, for an undetermined shot to get back in the game? In theory, […]
In the final installment of this blogging series looking at the gender disparity in finding idols on Survivor, I take a look at the psychology of how men and women approach the game, give my personal theory on the issue and suggest how both future female players and production might be able to redress the […]
Over 2018, the hottest Survivor statistic was the gender disparity between women and men finding idols. This year alone, thirteen idols were found, twelve of them by men. The lone female finder, Angelina Keeley, brought up the stat herself and the fact that it was included in the show suggests that production are also taking […]
Sarah Channon writes special feature blogs for RHAP focusing on the social dynamics at play in Survivor. Here, she breaks down the finale of David vs. Goliath which continues a trend: Was Nick’s win a foregone conclusion? Did Mike have a chance? Would Angelina’s chances be better if she were a man?

Every season, Survivor’s finest writing websites come together in a competition to predict how each juror will vote. And every season, Austin Smith at Inside Survivor destroys us all. But this is the season of David vs. Goliath. A season which some might say is the best season ever. (Don’t @ them.) So A Tribe […]
The season is called David vs. Goliath. That’s the theme, the narrative, how the players have been groomed to see it. Usually, this is the point where I say that, in Survivor, perception is reality… but that’s not the case for this merge. Right now, any David vs. Goliath perception is overlooking the very real […]
Somehow we have arrived at the twelfth Know-It-Alls live event, and the sixth of my blogs covering what happened on location. By this point, you might be taking it for granted that I’ll be bringing you all the behind the scenes gossip to read at your leisure, but don’t get complacent. As it happens, Rob […]
The premiere of David vs. Goliath is just days away, and we’ve all had a few weeks now to mull over what Jeff Probst has told us about this season. I don’t doubt that you have your own thoughts and feelings about this, but let me assure you: my opinions are more important. The Theme […]
Do you want to play a game? Follow the words… Survivor writers across the internet come together once more in the season’s most sacred ritual: predicting how the jurors will vote. Last season, Austin Smith at Inside Survivor won by predicting five out of eight votes correctly. Now he’s defending his title against True Dork […]
This season, Rob and Stephen decided to reverse the curse (of Wigler’s Wombats?) by moving the Know It Alls live show to Boston instead of New York. While this didn’t stop most of the usual crew from attending, many New Yorkers decided that while we can come to them, they don’t come to us. Yes, […]
