Celebrate 30 Seasons of Survivor with "The Evolution of Strategy"

For going on 30 seasons, Survivor has captured the imagination of a generation of TV watchers and ushered in a new genre of TV.

Two-Time Survivor player, Rob Cesternino, and entertainment journalist, Josh Wigler, are going back through every season to discuss the strategic breakthroughs, game innovations and play Monday morning quarterback through every tribal council ever.

Chapter 7: Pearl Islands

In chapter 7, we break down one of the most beloved seasons of Survivor, The Pearl Islands. It's a season featuring strategic lessons from 3 iconic Survivors: Sandra, Fairplay and Rupert. We'll follow Sandra's first victory to discuss the "as long as it ain't me" strategy. In addition, we will analyze each step in the battle between Jonny Fairplay and Rupert. Plus, we talk through all of the implications of The Shipwreck, the outcast twist and, of course, the Grandma Lie in Chapter 7.
