Survivor


On last night’s Survivor, Colton continued to play puppet master. The tribes divided, and one was a lot more stacked than the other…I’m just sayin’. Colton has his new tribe eating out of the palm of his uncalloused, manicured hand, and I want to reach through my screen and pluck one of his eyebrows more than the other so they’d look uneven. That’s true retaliation, let me tell you.

The Salani awake after not having to attend tribal council. They can’t believe that the men of Manono are such a mess. The women hope that the merge is impending, as they are now seven strong against the men’s crumbling brood. Jeff Probst invites the teams to the reward challenge and calls for a tribe switch. Colton looks like someone just yanked his favorite silver spoon right out of his mouth! The new teams will be chosen at random. Each player will receive an egg. Jeff will count down to when everyone can smash their egg against their chest. The color of the yolk will determine the new tribes. The blues are Salani while the orange is Manono. I will say, it seems the blue team got the best of both. It will be fun watching Colton and Alicia vie for attention on the new orange team.

Last night’s Survivor started off simple enough…the women have gained momentum, the once unified Manono are beginning to crumble. However, I never thought I would see or hear what I did. Boo to you, Colton. Boo. To. You. And to think, last week I thought we’d be biffles if I ever met you on the street. Shame on me.

The men head back to camp after sending Hairless Matt packing. The remaining Muscles can’t believe the outcasts have aligned. Tarzan and Troyzan decide Bill needs to be next, not because they don’t like him – quite the opposite! Bill is so charming he’s dangerous, potentially eroding the core alliance of five.

Oh ladies of Survivor, did any of you ever watch an episode before coming on this show? Perhaps you did, as you finally made some headway on last night’s episode.

A storm’s a brewin’ on the beach, and Colton invites the women to the men’s camp, which has more shelter to survive the elements. The women politely decline, because… They. Are. Tough. The women are freezing and wind-blown, when the downpour begins. They are huddled together under a flimsy palm-frond tent. Good times! Thankfully, the Salani make it through the night. They are cold, hungry, and tired, and with their fire gone, they don’t know what they’ll be eating. Troyzan and Colton allow the women to come dry off by their roaring fire. Of course the men have fire…they are a cohesive team. Some of the women are proud they didn’t cave in to sleep at the guy’s camp, but they have no shame in using their fire. Hairless Matt is not amused to find boobs in his camp.

Do you like the recap title? I got it from one of my former first grade students after his dad’s alma mater beat my alma mater in basketball. If only I’d known in 2005 that Roy’s words would be so helpful to me now. On last night’s Survivor, the tribes proved once again that girls are passive-aggressive, while men like to pound their (sometimes waxed) chests when they succeed. It’s a study in middle school behavior to say the least.

The women head back to the Salani camp, which is basically the Manano camp. The guys brag that they were nice enough to keep their fire burning. It’s annoying to Michael that none of the women had to be voted off since Kourtney broke her wrist. Christina approaches Alicia to rehash the differences the girls had at tribal council. Alicia apologizes for any bad blood, but in her interview she twirls her imaginary evil-doer mustache and proclaims that if she saw Christina drowning in the ocean, she’d look the other way. It’s that kind of empathy I would hope that most special education teachers portray.

Last night’s season premiere of Survivor: One World definitely brought the twists. This go-round, the castaways are back in the South Pacific. However, it’s boys versus girls with both tribes sharing the same beach. It should be very interesting! (After watching and blogging, I have to say I am super excited about this season. They are mixing up the game, and I love it. Mee. Yow.)

The group meets Jeff Probst, and he immediately asks Kourtney, a woman wearing a jaunty Shamu-inspired knitted skull cap, where she fits in with her fellow Survivors. Her answer? Nowhere. Looks like someone isn’t forming alliances right off the bat! A guy wearing a sweater that Brad Goreski has seemingly tossed casually around his fashionable shoulders–he later calls himself the girl in the guys’ tribe–finds the group to be good looking, although not as handsome as himself. Another man named Greg who has dubbed himself Tarzan is ready to throw down island style.

Tonight marks the season premiere of Survivor: One World, the show’s twenty-fourth exciting season of ultimate endurance. This season takes the castaways back to the South Pacific for an extreme battle of the sexes as the two teams–the all-male Manono and the all female Salani–fight to remain on the island and win the $1 million dollar prize!

In another all-new twist, for the first time both tribes will share the same beach from the very beginning, allowing for alliances with the opposite teams to be forged from the start – meaning even bigger drama once the two tribes merge!

In a third exciting twist, the castaways will be confronted with hidden immunity idols for each tribe. If a castaway finds one of the hidden idols for their own tribe, they can keep it for themselves or give it to another castaway on their team. HOWEVER, if they find one of the other team’s immunity idols, it must be given to a person on the opposing team!

Host Jeff Probst also warned that the castaways will be randomly subjected to “Do It Yourself” challenges, or challenges without his supervision. Things are going to be very interesting this season! See a clip of tonight’s premiere below!

It seems like only yesterday that a new Survivor winner was crowned and awarded the coveted $1 million dollar prize. Next month CBS returns to the islands for its 24th season of the ultimate competition show in Survivor: One World.

As always the castaways will be divided into two tribes; except this time it will be a battle of the sexes! The two tribes, the Salani women’s tribe and the Manono men’s tribe, are named after islands in Samoa. Meet the 18 new castaways (below) including the wife of a former NFL player and a little person!

The network recently released a sneak peak of the upcoming season, which features plenty drama on the island as the teams battle it out to be the last man or woman standing!

Survivor: One World premieres Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

CBS loves a reality crossover! Unfortunately for viewers, Survivors turned Survivors turned Amazing Race contestants turned Survivor (you get my drift) Rob and Amber Mariano have been replaced with a new over-exposed celebreality power couple.

Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas were the Big Brother couple many people loved to hate. We watched the pair fall in love on Season 12 of the hit show (who thought that would last?) and get engaged before returning for Round Two on the following season. Season 13 brought more of the same for the hot-and-cold, drama-loving pair when they returned with other former BB twosomes to switch up the show’s dynamic (sound familiar, Survivor?) with Rachel going on to win the $500,000 grand prize after her honey got the boot (yet again).

Well, now it seems the couple will have another chance to win over our hearts as they compete in the twentieth season of Amazing Race. Thanksgiving weekend, there were several reports that the new season was filming at Los Angeles International Airport, and among the traveling partners were Rachel and Brendon. Someone has to fill Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca’s shoes though, right?

Perhaps the pair will be the first CBS power couple to actually win Amazing Race. There have been several past crossover pairs, but only Rob and Amber have come close to taking home the title when they finished second on Season 7… not to be confused with when they traveled the world on the “all-star” edition of the series. If these airport sightings are accurate, maybe the couple will find the popularity needed to have CBS foot the bill for a televised wedding!

The new season of Amazing Race is set to premiere early next year.

DID YOU WATCH RACHEL AND BRENDON ON BIG BROTHER? HOW DO YOU THINK THE PAIR WILL DO IN THE AMAZING RACE? THOUGHTS ON CBS RECYCLING REALITY STARS?
