Nobody can deny the entertainment factor Tony Vlachos brought to the 28th season of Cagayan. Through his distinctive accent, his over the top playing and his insightful strategy, Tony bucked the trend by showing that a big over the top character can still dominate airtime and walk away a winner of Survivor. In one of our longest interviews in the history of Survivor Oz, Tony goes over his game in detail and brings out a few surprising revelations along the way. It even seemed that outside of the game he still wasn’t done playing, just ask Spencer…
When you think of the 2nd season of the Australian Outback it’s hard not to remember every single contestant as bringing something unique and new to what still is to this day the most watched season in the history of Survivor. For Maralyn ‘Mad Dog’ Hershey she brought the word ‘unique’ to a new level with her humour, personality and everything else in between. And in one of our most entertaining and somewhat revealing interviews of all time, Mad Dog goes through everything from her spur of the moment decision to even apply for the show, right through to her love of hip hop music and referring to another contestant as a ‘greedy bitch’.
The 6th season of the Amazon is often remembered for the strong strategic gameplay of Rob Cesternino and doesn’t often give a lot of the other male contestants a decent legacy. However the runner-up of that season Matt Von Ertfelda certainly is a contestant who perhaps deserves more credit and love from that season. Through an interesting journey of discovery and some would say ‘crazy’ moments, Matt never seems to get the credit he deserves for making it all the way to the end and for his time on the show. Today we bring you a chat that just might change your opinion of him, and in our second ever written interview for this site, Matt goes over everything from his amazing life as an adventurer right through to why it was Rob following him and not the other way around.
A very special episode coming your way today as we bring you a World Cup special episode featuring three soccer crazy Survivor contestants in Benjamin ‘Coach’ Wade from Tocantins, Heroes vs Villains & South Pacific, Abi-Maria Gomes from Philippines and for the very first time on Survivor Oz the winner of Africa and All-Stars contestant Ethan Zohn!
There was just something about Reynold Toepfer’s game that always saw him at the bottom on Caramoan. As soon as things looked likely to turn in his favour, something was pulled out from under him and he was always on the back foot. However he managed to survive deep, form a memorable alliance and be part of some of the big moments on the 26th season. But how did Australia play a part in him getting on the show? And just why is he not a fan of Sherri?
David Samson went into the 28th season of Cagayan with a lot to play for. As the President of the MLB team the Miami Marlins he had a reputation as a leader and a business man but he decide to play with an ‘under the radar’ strategy that ultimately wouldn’t work. With the Brains tribe not doing well, David might not have lasted as long as he wanted but still came out of the game with a memorable experience that he wouldn’t trade for the world. But just what did his teams players think? And why did he think his tribe was so stupid?
Jim Rice went into South Pacific with a plan but that plan was thrown out the window within the first few moments, as often is the case in Survivor. As someone who was quick to have an opinion and had some strong strategic thoughts, it was never to be for Jim as his game was derailed by a certain contestant with glasses who ultimately would turn out to be a winner of a future season. For Jim it’s all in the past, but there is still plenty to say about Mr.Cochran as well as just which contestants tried to buy weed off him and why he still dislikes one of his cast members to this day.
