Published: December 18, 2021
With Survivor 41 now in the rear-view mirror, Brent looks back at his past predictions from the season and highlights five stories and scenes that really did have long-term impact (and one that didn't).
Episode 12: Looking to the endgame
Published: December 13, 2021
This week, the "Top Five, Baby!" is literal, as Brent examines the paths each of the five remaining contestants are likely to follow in the season finale (already!?) of Survivor 41.

Published: December 6, 2021
A new majority has emerged, but can it last? A new twist has entered the game, but did it work? Brent asks these questions and dives into the big, emotional discussions of Episode 11 of Survivor 41.
Episode 10: The many moving parts of a big move
Published: November 29, 2021

Brent looks at the continuing conflicts within the main alliance in power, the shifting profiles of people within that core, and whether anyone outside that group can stay in the game.

It's only Day 16, but two of the three original tribes are in tatters, people are eating slivers of fruit without getting approval, and there's someone named Heather at Tribal Council! Brent looks at these and other shocking developments in Episode 8 of Survivor 41.
Episode 7: A big move, and a big tribe finally merges
Published: November 8, 2021
Brent looks at a bold move that shook up Tribal Council, a small tribe that now appears united, and a big bond that formed surprisingly quickly as Survivor 41 officially enters the post-merge phase.

While the merge is only halfway complete (maybe?), Brent looks at the traditional long-term meat of the merge episode: The feast talk, the new alliances, some old ones falling apart, and, of course, an exile.

Brent takes a mid-season peek at the three still-standing original tribes and their dynamics, greets three freshly powered-up immunity idols, and nods grimly at an overpowered new advantage.

Brent ponders the road ahead for an Ua tribe that keeps going to Tribal, and the dynamics of a Luvu tribe that can't seem to get there even when they're trying. Will either of these groups hold together through a swap or a merge?

With so many advantages and votes in limbo in Episode 3, it's hard to track what's of long-term importance in Survivor 41. Brent is here to highlight more significant moments, even ones that don't even involve broccoli or butterflies.
