‘Survivor’ Slugfest #29.02: John Rocker is sexist; Jeff Probst oversteps his bounds

Once a bigot, always a bigot. We have a feeling that’s the motto “Survivor” villain John Rocker lives by, as it only took two episodes of Season 29 for the former MLB pitcher to make an offensive comment to his fellow tribemates in San Juan del Sur.

During our latest “Survivor” slugfest, Gold Derby’s Editors discuss Rocker’s “beat by a girl” moment and also wonder if perennial host Jeff Probst may have overstepped his bounds after the reward challenge. (Watch the entire slugfest below.)

‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur’ recap: Blood, tears and fake Immunity idols in Episode 2

Joining me in our slugfest recap of “Survivor” Episode #29.02 is Senior Editor (and birthday boy) Matt Noble as we make our picks for who we think will win Season 29 and who’ll be voted out next. We also wonder if San Juan del Sur might be the next Palau in terms of one tribe dominating and completely eliminating the other.

Matt and I discuss our favorite and least favorite moments from “Method to This Madness,” including Val Collins‘ two invisible Immunity idols, that tie vote between Val and Baylor Wilson at Tribal Council and the sleepover at Exile Island between racist John Rocker and African-American Jeremy Collins… talk about awkward.
