    Talking with T-Bird: Caryn Groedel

    The time has come for the return of “Talking with T-Bird.” Each episode, Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino) and Survivor: Africa‘s Teresa “T-Bird” Cooper (@tbirdcooper) will catch up with a former Survivor player and talk about anything and take listener questions. In the fifty-third episode of “Talking with T-Bird,” Rob and T-Bird’s guest is 5th place finisher on Survivor: Palau, Caryn Groedel.

    Caryn’s journey on Survivor began on the dominant Koror tribe, where she was selected in a schoolyard pick. Although she was outside the majority alliance on Koror and was not vital to challenge success, Caryn was safe as her tribe went on to win every tribal immunity challenge that season. In lieu of a traditional merge, Stephanie, the final remaining member of the Ulong tribe was absorbed into Koror, and the individual phase of the game began. She found herself in a much better position and found trust in eventual season winner Tom Westman. After being involved in the blindside of Ian, Caryn found herself in the crosshairs and was voted out of the game on Day 36. In her personal life, Caryn is a lawyer and lives in Ohio with her husband and three daughters.

    Talking with T-Bird: Jan Gentry

    Talking with T-Bird: Jan Gentry

    The time has come for the return of “Talking with T-Bird.” Each episode, Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino) and Survivor: Africa‘s Teresa “T-Bird” Cooper (@tbirdcooper) will catch up with a former Survivor player and talk about anything and take listener questions. In the fifty-second episode of “Talking with T-Bird,” Rob and T-Bird’s guest is 3rd place finisher on Survivor: Thailand, Jan Gentry.

    Jan’s Survivor career began with a big responsibility: as eldest female, she was charged with choosing the members of the Chuay Ghan tribe. Although she was criticized for choosing the older and perceived weaker castaways, it may have been that early game decision that resulted in her lasting in the game until day 38. A kooky, offbeat character, Jan both mystified and entertained her tribe. Perhaps most memorable was the pet cemetery she established on Chuay Ghan beach, best retold in Mario Lanza’s Funny 115 article. Jan’s non-threatening air had her protected until the Final Immunity Challenge, where season winner Brian Heidik decided to send her to jury as he felt she was very well-liked and he had a better chance against Clay Jordan. T-Bird and Rob are thrilled to catch up with Jan 20 years after her Survivor debut.

    Talking with T-Bird: Colton Cumbie 

    The time has come for the return of “Talking with T-Bird.” Each episode, Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino) and Survivor: Africa‘s Teresa “T-Bird” Cooper (@tbirdcooper) will catch up with a former Survivor player and talk about anything and take listener questions. In the fifty-first episode of “Talking with T-Bird,” Rob and T-Bird’s guest is 13th place finisher on Survivor: One World, and 19th place finisher on Survivor: Blood vs Water, Colton Cumbie.

    Colton’s Survivor journey began on the all-male Manono tribe has a result of the men vs women twist on Surivor: One World. Although he found it difficult to relate to the men, he rejoiced in the twist that had both men and women tribes living on one beach, and quickly bonded with the women. He was gifted an immunity idol on Day 4 from Sabrina Thompson, and he soon formed the Misfit Alliance with Troyzan, Leif, Jonas and Tarzan in order to compete with the stronger men of the tribe. Colton’s ego and attitude caused problems within both tribes, but he survived through a tribe swap and a few tribal councils before fateful Day 16. Colton began by complaining of a headache, eventually collapsing and choosing to leave the game due to acute appendicitis. His decision to take his idol out of the game as a souvenir rather than pass it along to an ally was met with controversy.

    Colton was asked to return for Survivor: Blood vs Water with his boyfriend Caleb Bankston. When the casting twist placed them on opposite tribes, Colton was once again an outcast on his tribe and was deeply disappointed to be separated from his loved one. On Day 7, when his tribe, Galang, went to Redemption Island to view the duel, Colton announced he was quitting the game as he felt it was unwinnable for him, he had no positive relationships with his team, and being apart from his boyfriend Caleb was too much.

    Colton is one of the most controversial and memorable contestants in Survivor history. Despite his contentious seasons of Survivor, Colton has experienced a life time in his short 31 years on Earth. In addition to being the recipient of much online bullying due to his Survivor career, in 2014, his partner in Survivor and life, Caleb Bankston was tragically killed in a work accident. In this podcast, Colton bravely shares his life and Survivor experiences.

    Talking with T-Bird: Jaison Robinson

    The time has come for the return of “Talking with T-Bird.” Each episode, Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino) and Survivor: Africa‘s Teresa “T-Bird” Cooper (@tbirdcooper) will catch up with a former Survivor player and talk about anything and take listener questions. In the fiftieth episode of “Talking with T-Bird,” Rob and T-Bird’s guest is 5th place finisher from Survivor: Samoa, Jaison Robinson.

    Jaison started his Survivor: Samoa journey on the Foa Foa Tribe. Nearly voted tribe leader, losing by just one vote to future ally Mick, Jaison was well-liked by his tribe early on. Despite being on the wrong end of Russel Hantz’ infamous sock-burning sabotage, the two agreed to work together in the game. The Foa Foa tribe struggled in the pre-merge portion of the game, and entered the merge with only four players to Galu’s eight. Those remaining four became the Foa Foa Four, consisting of Jaison, Russel Hantz, Mick Trimming and Natalie White, and were able to stick out the rest of the game, until on day 37 the final remaining member of the Galu tribe won immunity and forced the Foa Foa Four to turn against each other. Due to his strength, Jaison blindsided at the final five and became the eight member of the jury.

The EdgyMili Tribe has Spoken!

Rob: “ Don’t you worry Jenny Autumn isn’t going anywhere…she’s back”!

The Tribe: Thank goodness you heard us! Jenny’s insightful analysis with incredible extemporaneous humor is the best! Just the right amount of respectful edginess 😀with value added perspective. And the chemistry between the two of you is unmatched. More please!

Evvie

I very much enjoy her interviews but she could keep the fawning over the interviewees to a minimum. I want her to do well and improve. The interviews themselves are excellent but the fan girling is unnecessary.

ibsenmark ,

So much content!

I need more hours in the day to listen to all of the wonderful coverage of Survivor, I discovered RHAP through BB and I started watching Survivor because of RHAP, my absolute favorites are “The Know It Alls” and the “B&B” with Mike Bloom (formerly known as DigiBloom) and Liana. Keep up the great work!
