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 5: Thailand

In chapter 5 of The Evolution of Strategy we discuss a season of Survivor that was dominated by the strategy of the season's winner, Brian Heidik. We will discuss whether Brian is over-rated or under-rated in Survivor lore for his game on this season. Plus we'll discuss how twists like the first tribe draft and the fake merge really altered some of the plans that the players had been making based on how the first four seasons played out.
