Survivor Edge of Extinction logo

Survivor: Edge of Extinction is the 38th season of Survivor, and the nineteenth season of coverage for RHAP. The season features 14 new contestants with four returning players.

This season introduced Extinction Island, a desolate, abandoned beach with less amenities than the main island, where voted out players resided for a chance to return to the game. Upon being voted out, players were given the opportunity to exit the game permanently or to take a boat to Extinction Island, and were given the opportunity to leave the Extinction Island at any point by raising a white flag.

DescriptionEdit

Coverage of Edge of Extinction began in January 2019, before the actual cast announcement. Similar to his coverage of Survivor: Game Changers, Rob did individual podcasts leading up to the cast reveal that had him and a guest breaking down the previous games and RHAP appearances of the returning players. In addition to his cast breakdowns with Nicole Cesternino and Angie Caunce, Brice Izyah also came on to do his first impressions based solely on the cast photos.

The major change in weekly programming came in the eradication of exit interviews this season, due to the unconventional elimination process on the season. As a result, the "This Week in Survivor History" quiz was moved to its own podcast later in the week. Now dubbed "This Week in Survivor", it featured the quiz as well as discussion of Survivor social media, which was usually used in the feedback show. The Survivor Know-it-Alls also had their first live show in Philadelphia, featuring appearances from Wendell Holland, Chrissy Hofbeck, Rodney Lavoie Jr., Davie Rickenbacker, Gabby Pascuzzi, and Kevin Schlehuber.

List of Podcasts and GuestsEdit
