Survivor: Blood vs. Water is 27th season of the CBS reality show Survivor and the eighth season of coverage from RHAP. The season featured ten pairs of returning contestants and their loved ones. It aired from September 18 to December 15, 2013 and was won by RHAP frequenter Tyson Apostol.

DescriptionEdit

The pre-season for Blood vs. Water started with a first impressions podcast on August 22, 2013.[1] Like Surivor: Caramoan, Rob made a special podcast to show previous appearances for a few of the returnees, including Monica Culpepper, Kat Edorsson, Hayden Moss, Colton Cumbie, Aras Baskauskas, and Tyson Apostol.[2] The podcast then repeated another tradition from the previous season and brought in a few bloggers to discuss their predictions for the upcoming season.[3]

This season also saw the return of Survivor Know-it-Alls with Stephen Fishbach and the exit interviews for eliminated players. However, with the Redemption Island twist, some were interviews several episodes after being voted off. The final set of exit interviews covered the final seven players in the game. For the first time (and due to the infrequency of Nicole's appearances following the birth of their first son), Rob brought on a guest every week to listen to viewer voicemails during the episode recap podcast. They ranged from Survivor bloggers to Internet personalities to other reality show contestants.

List of Podcasts and GuestsEdit

Note: Unless noted, Rob Cesternino has appeared on every podcast of the season. Stephen Fishbach appeared on every episode of Survivor-Know-It-Alls this season except for Ep 12.

^1  Rob took a brief hiatus that week to get adjusted to the birth of his new son. As a result, Malcolm Freburg stepped in as a "Know-it-All" that week and no recap podcast was recorded.
^2  Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, Vytas' exit interview had to be conducted on the following Monday. However, Rob had a conflict with his day job, so Josh Wigler gave the interview.
