Big Brother Season 16, Episodes #1 & 2: Welcome to the Jungle!

Hiya Readers!

They’re in! All 16 of this year’s BB16 Houseguests are in the House battling it out to walk away with the $ 500 000 prize.  All of them were so excited about starting the game, not knowing what laid in store for them this season.  How did they enjoy the new twists Julie Chen and the producers threw at them this season? Read on and you shall see!

NIGHT 1
The producers decided to make the season premiere a two-night event.  They split up the Houseguests so that one group of 8 would enter the House on Night 1 (June 25th) while the others entered Night 2 ( June 26th). As usual, Julie Chen was dressed to the nines in this amazing long red dress while exacting doom on welcoming the first group of Houseguests into the House. These players were: Paoula, Devin, Donnie, Frankie, Cody, Nicole, Amber and Joey.

Once all 8 were in the House and chose their beds, the players got acquainted with each other before the battling began.  Of course, some of the Houseguests were checking each other out for potential “future amusement” possibilities (Paoula and Cody), while others were sizing up their competition or figuring out how they were going to fake out their opponents (Donnie).

Once the Houseguests toasted their arrival in the BB House, Julie Chen popped up on the living room’s monitor to speak with them.  She announced to the Houseguests that one of them would become the first HoH of the season.  They all were excited by this news. She also dropped the bomb on the group that the HoH this season would not be safe as they had been in the past.  Most of the smiles left the faces of the players,wondering whether it was worth it to try to win this once coveted position.

After Julie Chen left the Houseguests to themselves for a bit, the ladies of the House got together and decided to form an all-girl alliance. Devin and Donnie also formed a secret alliance in the Storage Room.

HoH Competition #1: GO FLY A KITE
Julie then then reassemble the group to tell them to get ready for the first HoH competition of the summer. Once in the BB backyard, Julie Chen explained how the first comp of the season was going to work.

Each player was on a rolling log while hanging on to a tether.  The tether was attached to a kite that stayed up so long as they were pulling back on the tether.  It was an endurance challenge where the last person standing and their kite was still in the air became HoH.

While the rolling log and random sprays of “sunscreen”did its best to knock the players off balance, one Houseguest did manage to come out on top!  This is the order that the players dropped out of the comp:
Paoula, Joey, Nicole, Donnie, Devin, Cody, Amber (threw it), making Frankie the first HoH of BB 16!

After the Comp is over, the Houseguests are corralled into living room by Julie Chen.  She had Frankie sit in one of the specific orange chairs, then informs them that a second group of Houseguests will be joining them soon, and that a second HoH will be crowned from this group this week. Julie Chen also told them that there will also be only one of the HoH standing by the end of the week.  This, of course brought shock and awe to the Houseguests as they pondered what this season’s twist will affect them.

Julie Chen then ended the show by announcing another twist to the viewers. It’s Team America. The (American) viewers get to vote in the Houseguests that they would want to form an alliance with. These people would the be in a secret alliance, fulfilling missions chosen, again by the American viewers, in order to win $5 000 each per mission! The first member of Team America would be revealed during Night 2 of the season premiere.

NIGHT 2
Julie Chen wore a cute short hot pink dress to kick off Night 2 of the season premiere of BB 16. The final 8 contestants were ready to join the fun and festivities inside the House. These players are:
Caleb, Brittany, Christine, Derrick, Zach, Jocasta, Hayden and Victoria.

Once all inside the House, the first 8 told the second 8 of the first twist of the season (their separate HoH Comp and 2 HoHs this season). Once the news was out, more of the sizing up(some of the guys on each other), checking out (Caleb on Amber, Cody on Brittany) and strategy-making took place around the House.

Julie Chen then gathered the Houseguests back into the liv8ng room so she could tell them the second group of 8 about the two HoH Competition, and what it means for the game.

HoH Competition #2: OVER THE COALS
It was another endurance comp where the players had to hold on for dear life as they were being spun over the BB BBQ pit. The Houseguest who held on the longest would become the second HoH of the summer alongside Frankie. Here is the order in which the Houseguests literally fell out of this comp: Victoria, Brittany, Jacosta, Christine, Zach, Derrick, Hayden, leaving Caleb,who looked liked he was having the time of his life, as the winner.

Julie Chen then asks the Houseguests to return to the BB Living Room. She told the Houseguests that the HoH will each choose two nominees for Eviction. She also let them in on the second new twist of the game: Battle of the Block. Each week, the two pairs of nominees will battle head-to-head in a comp. The winning pair get to come off the Block. As well, he HoH that nominated the loosing pair of nominees gets stripped of their HoH powers, leaving only one soul HoH to rule the nest (almost quite literally since one of their beds jn the HoH Room is a nest-themed bed).

Julie Chen then let the Houseguests chew on this bit of info and then turned to the audience. She introduced the first member of Team America to all of us. This lucky individual is my Jody! She was pleased to have been chosen and can’t wait to get to work. She then instructed the audience to vote for the second member of this covert alliance in the House.

Well, Readers! That about wraps things up for the premiere episode of BB 16! It had a bit of everything, plus new twists to throw off the players’ strategy a bit. As you can see, the Houeeguests this season were thoroughly introduced to the game that could be like finding your way through a jungle in order to win it! Will actual showmances begin to blossom? How will Frankie and Caleb, who are polar opposites, fair as HoHs? Which HoH will be left standing after the Battle of the Block Comp? Pop back to my blog to find out about all of the action!

Until my next post, Readers!

Survivor 27, Episode #1: Someone Else’s Actions Could Hurt You

Hey Readers!

It’s back!  It’s back!  It’s back!  Survivor 27 has finally started, and this season already has some interesting twists.  Most people knew about the Blood vs Water variation on the show, but how the producers did it was kind of neat.  Then there were the other curve balls they threw at the Castaways at the beginning of the game that got me more intrigued about how this season was going to play out.  Oh, they brought back Redemption Island, where voted out Castaways have the chance to compete to win their way back into the game.  Another hard part about this season is that you have to be careful of your actions, as they can then be reflected onto your loved one.  Two Returning Players, one for strategic reasons, one for payback, had their loved ones affected because of their actions, past and present.  What do I mean by this, you ask?  Read on and you’ll see!

Survivor took the Castaways and the viewers back to the Philippines for their 27th season of the show.  Viewers were introduced to each of the 10 Returning Players vying to win the million-dollar prize, along with their Loved One, and how they were related.  They separately spent their first night alone with each other in various locations on an island to get acquainted with the surroundings.  Some of the Loved Ones were a bit disappointed with the lack of survival skills their Returning Player partner had when first out there, but they all seemed to make it through the night,

They then met each other on the beach the next morning.  Jeff Probst welcomed the group to the Philippines, as well as to the game.  It was here that a twist o a twist was revealed to the players.  They found out that the Returning Players would be on a different tribe from their Loved One for a part of the show.  This shocked some of the Castaways, while it made other pairs even more ready to play the game.  Once separated, they were told their tribe names and given their buffs.  The Returning Players were called Galang, while the Loved Ones were called Tadhana.

Now that the tribes had been formed, Jeff Probst hit the Castaways with another bombshell.  Each tribe would be voting one of its members out of the game right then and there.  Whoa!  My jaw dropped at this bit of news!  I had a prediction about Rupert’s wife, Laura ( I will call her Laura B , as there is another Laura, who I will call Laura M) being voted out first because Rupert is Survivor royalty, and he plays a very emotional game.  You know, Readers, to mess with his head.  Well, it happened!  Tadhana voted her off because of Rupert’s past actions and to weaken his game-play. Galang voted Candice off of their tribe.

After the two votes were taken, Jeff Probst informed the Castaways that these players were not necessary out of the game yet, as they were resurrecting Redemption Island.  The twist on this twist was that, at this point in the game, was that the loved one of the Castaways who were just voted out could take their place, possibly giving up their chance to play the game so their loved one could experience more of the game.  Without batting an eye, Rupert said he would take his wife’s place on Redemption Island.  He did this for two reasons:  he said he would protect his wife however he could this season; and Rupert wanted his wife, Laura B, to have a true Survivor experience.  Let me tell you, Readers, this is why viewers and players have fallen in love with Rupert!  Despite the rough exterior, he’s truly an awesome person.  This moment made me an even bigger Rupert fan!  Candice and her husband, John, discussed the situation, he decided to let Candice go to Redemption Island because he felt she could beat Rupert and return to the game.

At Galang, the Returning Players got down to business.  They had their fire going, their shelter almost built, water boiling, and rice cooking away.  Laura B, felt out of place because she was the only one who didn’t know what to do.  Se also felt as tough the rest of her new tribe mates thought she would be like Rupert because they were married.

Monica was becoming weary of Colton.  She didn’t want to be burned by him like she was during their last meeting on Survivor: One World, where a power-tripped Colton back-stabbed Monica, sending her out of the game.  She said that he was mean and vindictive.  She was going to keep a close eye on this wily character!

Colton shared with Galang his intentions this time around in the game.  He said that he had turned over a new leaf since meeting his partner, Caleb.  Colton went on to say he has matured, and will be less insecure about himself, you know, be more like the true Colton he really was.  He wanted people to understand him.  He then started crying.  Monica started to soften her stance on Colton due to this display of waterworks.  She said the tribe shouldn’t be too quick to judge him unless they’ve walked in his shoes.  Hopefully, she keeps an eye out for Colton.  He seems as though he could be a wily one.

For the Loved Ones at Tadhana, things aren’t as optimistic as they are at Galang.  They were having trouble building their shelter and making fire.  They were all expecting to have their other halves with them to show them what to do.  Readers, this is one of my pet peeves about this show.  You know you are going to be on Survivor, and the first thing you should do at home, in the woods, somewhere, is to learn how to build a fire!  This ability may save your butt in this game!  Come on!  Especially when all of the Loved Ones have a personal connection to a former player of Survivor.  This really annoys me!

Brad started doing what smart players of this game do once they arrive at their tribe: form an alliance.  Since there are 5 men and 4 women, Brad thought it was only natural for the men to band together and pick off the women if they had to go to Tribal Council.  He went and did a hard sell on all of the guys in his tribe.  Some were on board, while others were sitting back on the idea.

At Redemption Island, Rupert and Candice had different ideas about how to get things done around their camp.  While Candice toiled around camp, pretty much doing everything to make sure they would get through their night, Rupert lounged and watched Candice wear herself out, living off of the spoils of Candice’s work.  Wow!  That doesn’t sound like the Rupert we all know and love!  Well, Readers, here’s the thing.  This was all a part of Rupert’s plan to beat Candice and return to the game.  He figured that by Candice tuckering herself out around camp, she wouldn’t have enough energy to beat Rupert in a head-on challenge.  He admitted this may have been why he lost so many challenges whenever he went out and played the game.  Oh, Rupert, you mastermind!  Candice, not catching on to what Rupert was doing was complaining about Rupert’s laziness, as well as the Returning Players who voted her out.

At the Immunity Challenge, the tribes had to send 6 of its members through a obstacle course in the water, untie a boat once all it their members reached their designated platform, and then row their boat back to shore which contained pieces to a ship’s stirring wheel.  Once they reached the beach, the remaining 3 members had to work together to put the wheel together, then put it on a crank to let their tribe flag down, signifying they were finished.  First tribe to accomplish this would win Immunity, and gain flint to have fire at their tribe.

When Jeff Probst asked the tribes if they had fire yet, Tadhana lied, saying they had fire.  Galang just scoffed at them, not believing a word they said.  Tadhana didn’t want to seem weak in front of their new enemies.  Well, their bluff was blown when Galang came from behind (no thanks to Gervase’s stellar performance in the water, or the poor puzzle-solving work of Ciera, Katie and Rachel), to win the first Immunity Challenge of the season!  Gervase, who should have kept his mouth shut because he almost lost the challenge for Galang, was the loudest of the Returning Players to trash-talk their Loved Ones!  Really, Gervase, I don’t think that was the smartest thing you should have been doing at that moment.  I was surprised he had the nerve to say anything after his lack luster performance!

Back at Tadhana, the tribe was consoling each other over their loss to Galang.  Katie was becoming nervous because she barely touched the puzzle when she had earlier boasted she was better at putting puzzles together than her mother, Tina, was, and that she could help them win the challenge.  Marissa was also getting worried, as it was her uncle, Gervase who was the loudest trash-talker of Galang.  Could his actions affect her safety in the game?  That was something that was going through her mind a mile a minute.

Brad and John were talking about Katie and Marissa’s worst fears at that same moment.  They said it really didn’t matter which of the ladies on their tribe left, so long as it wasn’t one of the guys.  Vytas, wanting to be the nice guy to keep ties with the ladies on the tribe, told them it would be one of them leaving.  I’m not sure this gave any of them that much comfort.

At Tribal Council, Jeff Probst and Tadhana spoke about the following topics:

  • The first Immunity Challenge – what their actions, or those of Galang, could sway people’s ideas of who to vote for.  Marissa and Katie both voiced their concerns.  Marissa believed she shouldn’t be judged by Gervase’s actions, while Katie believed she shouldn’t be judged by her poor performance at a challenge when it was their first one.  John haughtily said the vote wasn’t based purely on a person’s poor performance.
  • Redemption Island – John felt guilty about not taking his wife, Candice’s place out there.
  • Where the game was going from this point on – how voting someone off will effect the game of the Returning Players.

After their talk, Jeff Probst asked Tadhana to cast their votes.  After the votes were counted, Jeff Probst revealed the votes were 8-1 in favour of Marissa to leave the tribe.  Marissa was supposedly shocked by this, and gave her tribe an wordless, ugly glare as her torch was snuffed out.  So Marissa was also effect by Gervase’s actions in this game.  He’s not going to find out it until the next time the tribes meet again.  She then surprised Rupert and Candice on Redemption Island, awaiting their challenge to see who would return to the game, and who would go home.

It was an interesting season premiere, Readers!  You see how easy it is for a player’s game to be effected by another person’s  actions?  I think both votes for Laura B and Marissa were unfair.  They were both attacks against players in the game, not against anything they did themselves.  I’m not sure just how Gervase will take the news of his niece being voted out because of his actions.  In the promos for this season’s game, he said he would write her name down if it meant it would get him closer to the ed of the game, but I’m not sure if he even thought she would have been voted out because of him.  I want to see his reaction to her leaving in the next episode.  Which Castaway will win their way back into the game, who will go home?  Has Colton really changed his spots, or will he revert back to the Colton we all…well, know?  What other challenges will the islands of the Philippines have in store for these Castaways?  Come back to my blog and see what happens next on Survivor: Blood vs Water!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #1 – Let the Scheming and Backstabbing Begin!

Hey Readers!

It’s the premiere for BB15!  I have been patiently waiting for this since last year.  It’s been revealed that not two, but three House Guests are to be on the chosen for Eviction each week.  This certainly raises a player’s chances at being put in the chopping block.  Let’s go and find out how the first episode played out.

This season there are 16 House Guests competing for the $500 000 prize.  Julie Chen welcomed the viewers and the audience present wearing a fabulous pink dress, and introduced us to footage of the House Guests finding out they were chosen to compete on BB15.  Julie then has the House Guests come out in front of the set, and lets them into the House in groups of four.

Group #1         Group #2         Group #3         Group #4
Candice            Elissa                Helen                  Aaryn
GinaMaria      Jeremy            Jessie                 Amanda
Judd                  Kaitlin              Nick                    David
Andy                 McCrae            Howard              Spencer

Alliances were also beginning to form for some of the House Guests while they were exploring the House.  Elissa, who is past BB winner Rachel Reilly’s older sister, proposed to a bunch of the ladies in a room that they should create an all-girl alliance because it has never been done before. Most of them agreed with her idea, except for Jessie, who found Jeremy and David to forge their own alliance.  Then there was Howard, Jeremy and Spencer, who also agreed to try and work together as a group.

After some time went by, Julie Chen called the House Guests to the Living Room to inform them of the first major twist of the season.  Julie told them that three House Guests would be eligible for Eviction each week instead of two.  This, of course, shocked the House Guests.  She then turned off her connection to the House Guests and told the viewers and the live studio audience that the HoH would still be nominating two people, but a third party would be selecting the third nominee.  She left us in suspense, wondering who it could be. Based off of what was going on at CBS.com, I guessed it was going to be America (the home viewers) getting this honour. Judd then proposed a toast, saying, “May all of our backs be padded when we get stabbed in them!” All of the House Guests laughed and clinked their champagne glasses. That was one the best BB toasts I’ve ever heard! It was funny and hopeful.

At the first HoH Competition called Popsicle Factory, the House Guests had to hang on for dear life for this endurance challenge as they were swung around, sprayed at with jets of water and other manners of goo, and beat with a large pair of lips and a tongue.  This was the order the House Guests dropped out of the Competition: Judd, Howard, Amanda, Spencer, Helen, Candice, Jessie, Elissa, GinaMarie, Andy, Kaitlin, Aaryn.

At this point, since no one else was willing to drop, Julie presented the remaining House Guests with a prize.  The next two House Guests would be able to have the chance to find a “No Have Not” Pass in one of two lunch pails sitting before them for their entire time in the House.  They would be exempt from any Have Not punishments.  This enticed David to let go, only for him to have chosen the empty one.  Jeremy then jumped at the chance for this opportunity, winning the Pass by process of elimination.

This left Nick and McCrae to battle it out for HoH.  Nick proposed a deal to McCrae where Nick would be safe from nominations this week. I’m not sure if McCrae agreed with him to get him to drop first or if he’ll go through with the deal, but McCrae agreed and Nick fell first, making McCrae, the pizza delivery boy, this season’s first HoH. After this win, just about everyone in the House has become suspicious of who McCrae really is.

Backtracking a bit, Judd became suspicious of Elissa. During the HoH competition, he and other House Guests found some of her facial features familiar, as if they’d seen them on a former player. Then it hit Judd that she looked like Rachel and they were sister!  He didn’t let anyone else in on his revelation because information like this in the House is like having a $500 000 ticket handed to you. Elissa wouldn’t want this secret revealed!  It would create a HUGE target on her back.

Julie Chen then had the House Guests gather back into the living room to announce how the third nominee would be chosen.  Each week, America will be voting on who it thinks is the best player of the week, the BB MVP. This person will then secretly get to decide who the third nominee will be without their status being revealed. This is a huge advantage to anyone in the game, as it allows for that person to not to get blood on their hands while he or she is picking off an enemy or an ally. The first BB MVP will be chosen based on the strategies each of the House Guests revealed to America before they entered the House. The first BB MVP will be informed of their status after Tuesday’s Veto Competition.

Woohoo! Was that a great premiere episode or what! I think this is one of BB’s better twists they’ve come up with for the game. How will McCrae improve his social game after his reign of HoH is over? Who will become BB’s first MVP, and who will be this season’s first nominees? Hopefully, these questions will be answered in the next episode of Big Brother.

Until my next post, Readers!

Survivor: Philippines, Season 25 Premiere – Don’t Try So Hard So Soon!

Hey Readers!

I’m back covering a different reality show!  Since BB 14 has come and gone, it’s time to different reality show.   This time, it’s going to be Survivor: Philippines.  This series is on it’s 25th season this year, and I’m still surprised people are willing to go on this experience.  Some Castaways like to get their bearings in the game, while others like to go all out.  I would advise to hang back a bit, and see what kind of players are in your tribe.

For this season, the show cast two celebrities, Lisa Whelchel (Blair from the show The Facts of Life) and former MLB player, Jeff Kent.  As well, three former Castaways that got injured and had to leave the game early were back for another try at Survivor.  The other members of this cast had no idea these five people would be joining them, and the celebs were mixed in with the new members.  Let’s get to this season’s premiere and see how they approach their situations.

When the cast reach their destination, Survivor host, Jeff Probst, introduced the three returning players that would be joining them this season.  Some Castaways were happy they were there, while others were already plotting against them.  They also learned they would be placed into three tribes this season: Matsing (in blue), Kalabaw (in red), and Tandang (in yellow).  Each one the returning Castaways were put into one of the tribes to even things out.  These Castaways were Russell Swan (Matsing), Jonathan Penner (Kalabaw) and Michael Skupin (Tandang).  Jeff Probst also informed them of the three Immunity Idols hidden at each of the camps.

The Castaways were then instructed to pick a raft and grab as many supplies as they could within sixty seconds and head towards their new homes.  Kalabaw experienced some early set-backs when their raft tipped over, spilling anything they had collected into the ocean.  As well, Jeff Kent’s knee popped while collecting the Kalabaw’s supplies.  Hopefully, this won’t hinder him and his tribe later on down the road.

When the Tribes reached their destinations, some interesting things happened.  On Matsing, returning Castaway, Russell Swan, declared to his tribe mates that there should be no formal leader for their tribe, and that they should work together to make decisions.  Isn’t what he just did something that a leader would do?  Maybe a passive-aggressive one.  The other tribe members caught on to this when they started to put their camp together.  Russell was telling them what to do, and was showing Malcolm how to start a fire.  Russell’s actions were ticking a few people off, putting a target on his back.

Zane took a different approach to getting to know his tribe mates.  He found a topic he could start a conversation with, and tried getting on their good side.  He then proposed that they should form an alliance with each and every person.  Why would you do that?  He even went so far as to tell Russell and Malcolm that he had done so.  They just shook their heads and commented on him trying too hard too early in the game.

Russell wasn’t looking for an Immunity Idol clue, but he found one in their bag of rice.  He tried to carefully conceal it in his pockets until he was away from his tribe mates to read it.  What Russell didn’t know was that Zane saw what Russell did with the clue, destroying any trust he had built with Russell.

On Kalabaw, Jeff’s knee was just the beginning of his troubles.  Dawson recognized who Jeff was, yet she didn’t let anyone else know of this powerful bit of information.  She will let him know what she knew when the time was right for her.

Jonathan was not doing himself any favours by going all out trying to find the Immunity Idol on his own.  The rest of his tribe noticed what he was doing, and were not impressed with his tactics.  They believed they should work more as a unit and less as individuals.  I can relate with both sides in this situation.  Sure, Jonathan had played the game twice before, putting a huge target on his back, and having the security on an an Immunity Idol in his pocket makes sense to me.  I also get that it may not have been the best play for Jonathan to be so brazen about going after the Idol in front of his tribe.  You’re not helping your social game this way, Jonathan!

On Tandang, an alliance was formed quickly between Abi-Maria and RC.  They then pulled in Pete and Michael to have an alliance of four.

Celeb Lisa was trying to fit in with her fellow tribe mates, but was not succeeding as well as she thought she would.  Michael had recognized her, and let her know he knew who she was.  After finding out why she didn’t want the others to know who she was, was he on her side and would not reveal who she was to the rest of the tribe.  She didn’t want her fame to cloud their opinion of who she was today, or for them to think that she was rich.

Michael was also trying to shed his mistakes from his first time on the show.  It wasn’t working at all.  He cut himself a few times while trying too hard to work around camp and be an asset to his tribe.  He even has a huge gash in his foot.  I don’t know, Michael, your stock may be going down in the eyes of your tribe mates!

At the first Immunity/Reward Challenge, Jeff Probst explained what the Castaways had to do.  Each tribe had its members split into three pairs.  One pair had to race and get the oars for a raft that a second pair had to use to row their raft out to a point and retrieve a chest containing puzzle pieces.  The last pair then had to then put the puzzle together in order to win Immunity from Tribal Council and Reward.  The Reward for the wining tribe was a full fishing kit.  The tribe that came in second would also have immunity, as well as flint to start fires easier.  The tribe that came in last would have to go to Tribal Council, loosing one of its members.

Kalabaw came from behind to win the Challenge.  Tandang  was second, leaving Matsing to have to go to Tribal Council.  Russell took a some of the blame for their loss because he took on the leadership role on Matsing, dictating what role each person took on for the Challenge.

Once back at Matsing’s camp, Russell started lecturing the rest of the tribe about the importance of going all out at challenges.  Zane put in his two cents, putting some of the blame for their loss on himself because he knew he didn’t give it his all.  This was part of Zane’s plan to try to gain sympathy with the rest of the tribe so that they wouldn’t send him home.  I’m not sure how this would work in his favour.  When your tribe looses at challenges, people are looking for scapegoats to vote out.  I don’t think it’s a good idea, Zane.  Zane was also telling the rest of the tribe about Russell potentially having an Idol, setting up a blindside if he didn’t.

Russell continued his “non leadership” role by telling people that Zane was the one to go and that they were safe.  That act upset a lot of the tribe members because Russell wanted to steer the ship, yet he didn’t want to be on the ship as it went down.  The rest of the tribe was conflicted over who to sent home at Tribal.

At Tribal Council, Zane made himself look very cocky and like and idiot in front of everyone.  Russell admitted he blew it for his tribe at the Challenge, and that he realized he resorted back to his dictating ways.  Yet after all of these admissions, he said he would be shocked if he was the one going home.  The rest if the tribe let their feelings about Russell’s actions be known, and they were not favorable.

Matsing voted, and they decided that the first person voted out of their tribe, as well as Survivor: Philippines would be Zane.  As much as Russell became a dictator, Zane did too many things to make his tribe mates want to get rid of him.  I’m not sad he’s gone.  He made too many moves too soon in the game, and it caught up with him pretty quickly.  That is what happens when you try too hard too fast in the game of Survivor!

I’m not sure if I’m rooting any tribe or Castaway in particular at this point.  I haven’t really connected with any of them yet.  As for the celebs, my big question is why do they want to be on these shows and think they will not be recognized? They have to realize that someone will figure out who they are, and it could hurt their game for trying to conceal it.  If you want to learn about any of the this season’s Castaways, check out the link I’ve provided for you under Cast Info found lower on this post .   I wonder what will happen in the next episode.  Will those Castaways on the brink of being let go on their tribes gain some stock in the eyes of their tribe mates?  Will other Castaways step their game?  Well, come back to my blog and check out what happens in the next episode!

Until my next post, Readers!
