Our 25th Ozcap i s here, as Ben and his little gang of Ozlets discuss everything to do with the 25th season of Philippines in true Survivor Oz style!
A season which brought new life into the Survivor landscape after several lacklustre seasons had turned numerous viewers away from the show, Philippines brought back three returning contestants which had previously been medically evacuated in Michael Skupin, Jonathan Penner and Russell Swan. Together with two ‘celebrity’ contestants in Lisa Whelchel and Jeff Kent, there were numerous blindsides, power shifts and one of the best underdog winners in the history of the show in Denise Stapley. Denise defeated Michael and Lisa in the final tribal council in a 6-1-1 vote. During the Ozcap, we talk about which Ozlets would kiss Jeff Probst, Russell Swan and his lord Probst-isms, why the water challenges were such a welcome return, talking up the first boot confessional ratios, which contestant looked like a ‘shrimp’ according to Ben (even though he claims to have never said it), cuddle time with Penner, why we want to get Ozlet Rileigh drunk, how great Abi’s mum was on the show as well as the swagger of Malcolm, the use of hashtags and Snakes on a Plane. With all that put aside, we then bring it home with the now infamous Ozcap final questions!
