Survivor: Why The Original Reunion Should Replace The Fiji After-Show

This was especially evident in Survivor 42 when losing finalist Mike Turner, usually a cheery and upbeat personality, was visibly sullen after losing but managed a graceful response to Jeff’s questions. Despite Mike’s magnanimous reaction to Jeff’s prodding, the entire affair seemed cruel, just as it had in Survivor 41 when Xander Hastings and Deshawn Radden both appeared shaken and glum after losing the game to Erika. Further, because the season hasn’t been edited by the time the after-show is filmed, Jeff and the producers don’t yet fully know the standout stories and players of the season, so much of the after-show conversation is vague and banal.

Perhaps the on-location idea can be tweaked in order to lessen its detrimental impact on the show. The elimination of the awkwardness of having the contestants scarf down pizza while trying to answer Jeff’s questions would be a great start. It could also be filmed a day or two after Final Tribal, rather than immediately afterward. This would at least give the finalists some time to decompress. However, these changes would have minimal effect compared to reverting back to the original Survivor reunion format, which was decidedly less cruel to the finalists and a more engaging viewing experience for Survivor fans overall.
