S35

Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers is the 35th season of Survivor, and the sixteenth season of coverage for RHAP. This season features 18 new players divided into three tribes based on dominant perceived trait: "Heroes" (courage), "Healers" (helping others), and "Hustlers" (tenacity).

DescriptionEdit

Coverage of Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers began with the cast release in August 2017. For the 35th season of Survivor, Rob chose to retool the way he did preseason coverage. He still had his requisite podcasts: a kickoff (this time with new part of the Survivor press Mike Bloom) and cast assessments with Nicole Cesternino, Corinne Kaplan, and Angie Caunce (though the latter was saved for after the first two episodes of the season had aired). Additionally, Josh Wigler, who was out on set for the preseason, did a series of interviews exclusively for RHAP, and he and Rob got together in a series of podcasts to discuss their takes on the interviews. Wigler also came out with his own podcast series in the preseason; "First One Out," done in the narrative style of an NPR podcast, outlines his search to find the first player out of the season, including interviews with the cast, crew, and first boots from previous seasons.

Rob and Stephen did a slew of live Survivor Know-it-Alls shows over the course of the season in a variety of locations, including October 18 at the "Run it Up Reno" poker tourney in Reno, November 8 at the AMC Loews Theater in New York City, and December 6 at the Austin Westin in Austin.

Rob retooled his Survivor podcast release schedule, as well as the repertoire of shows for this season. The changes include:

  • "This Week in Survivor History" stuck with the quiz format from the previous season, but now Rob competes on the quiz with a different competitor every week
  • The voicemails show was pushed back to be released on Sunday/Monday
  • "The Wiggle Room" was pushed back to be released on Tuesday, and featured more guests. Additionally, the podcast now featured a "Wand-Off," where listeners would submit their own parody songs in an homage to favorite of the podcast Wanda Shirk
  • Rob left "Why ____ Lost" and the podcast moved to Reality TV RHAP-Ups, with David Bloomberg taking over as host and Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X contestant Jessica Lewis serving as co-host
  • A new weekly podcast also started on RHAP-Ups called "RHAP B&B". Hosted by Mike Bloom and Liana Boraas, the show had a different member of the RHAP or podcasting community on to play a series of games and segments about the most recent episode
  • The Big Brother Live Feed Correspondents (Taran Armstrong, Melissa Deni, and Brent Wolgamott) did occasional check-ins on Reality TV RHAP-Ups
