Survivor: Merge Discussion with Albert Destrade



We waited patiently as CBS fed us episode after episode of Survivor: Who Cares Island and at long last it appears we've hit the tipping point.  Gone are the days of rice dumpings, lopsided tribes, "which one was she?" and carnival games (well, we hope).  At long last shake-ups, betrayals, scrambling, and blindsides are upon us, and today we're back to get first-hand insight on life at the merge from our old friend Albert Destrade (in addition to our regular show this week).

Drawing from his time spent studying and playing the game, Albert talks us through the fundamentals of optimally approaching a merge, addressing both the tribally-divided situations he faced himself as well as more unpredictable merge dynamics like we're seeing play now, focusing  on the very different but equally interesting positions facing Cochran and Malcolm.

Plus, what was Albert's take on seeing three of his former tribemates return to the game?  What advice did he have for Cochran before the season began filming? What was the catalyst for Corinne's game-ending error?  And how might the game progress from here? All this, and more, on this week's show, available below, here, or find us on iTunes here.
