Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chance, also known as Survivor: Second Chance, was the 31st season of Survivor and the twelfth season of coverage for RHAP. Unlike previous seasons, which were completely cast by producers, this season featured 20 contestants chosen by an online public vote from a producer-picked pool of 32 past players, all of whom had played only once before and not yet won.

DescriptionEdit

The coverage for Cambodia began all the way back in May 2015, when the players in the pool to be elected to the cast first dropped. Rob put out the call for any candidates to come onto his podcast to promote themselves. He was met with an overwhelming response; 25 out of the 32 candidates did interviews with him. Before the votes were revealed, Rob did a podcast with RHAP Tabulator Curt Clark to make his predictions for who would make the cast based on votes from the RHAP community. Additionally, Mike Bloom, Jessica Liese, and Akiva Wienerkur released two podcasts giving their own takes on the interviews/campaigns and their predictions as to who would get on.[1] [2] As the season premiere date got closer, the usual pre-season coverage came out, including the "7 Things to Know" podcast with Josh Wigler, a cast preview with Nicole Cesternino, and predictions with Angie Caunce based on her casting types system.

The Cambodia coverage also saw several changes and additions to the weekly podcasts. Due to usual Survivor Know-it-Alls cohost Stephen Fishbach being on the season and therefore unavailable to podcast, Josh Wigler, Survivor journalist and partner on The Evolution of Strategy, filled in. Additionally, Rob instituted a new weekly podcast in Episode 2 called "Why ____ Lost." With cohost David Bloomberg, formerly of Reality News Online, the two went through David's rules of playing the game in order to see where the most recently voted out contestant went wrong.

List of Podcasts and Guests Edit

NOTES: Rob Cesternino appeared on every podcast of the season with the exception of Episode 8's exit interview and recap podcast, due to the birth of his second child. Josh Wigler appeared on every episode of Know-it-Alls. David Bloomberg appeared on every episode of "Why ____ Lost." Jordan Kalish appeared on every exit interview podcast with the exception of Episode 8 and the finale.
