Survivor Samoa: Taking Candy From a Baby

The immunity challenge gets rough on Survivor Samoa
(S19E02) Controversy is good for a show, don't you think? When you think about it, we're on the 19th season of Survivor. There are only so many fresh new challenges and twists you can do with a bunch of folks stuck in the jungle. What to do? We saw it last season -- come up with outrageous cast members. The same tactic is in practice this season, perhaps two for the price of one. Evil has a name and we know it's Russell. Stupid Jerk Bully has a name ... and, believe it or not, that name isn't Russell.

Survivor: They Both Went Bananas

The tribal council snake on Survivor

(S18E11) Yes, it's the Tribal Council snake from Survivor. You see, Sue Hawk (season one) called it. Remember her epic speech to Richard Hatch and Kelly Wiglesworth? "There are two things on this island, snakes and rats." I'm looking at the group we have left this season. I'm thinking there are more fuzzy mice than snakes and rats. I think there's a vulture or two in there, too. But this is one season I'm not rooting for the snake to eat the rat.

Survivor Micronesia: I'm Gonna Fix Her!

Survivor Micronesia - The Curse of the Idol
(S16E12) Okay, I officially declare Survivor Micronesia to be one of the best, if not the best, season ever in the series. You see, the show really isn't all about surviving the elements of nature. The survival skills needed don't necessarily have to do with who might forage best in the woods or who can build a sturdy shelter. Nope, it's "Outwit, Outplay, Outlast." And, chances are ... if you outwit and outplay, you're going to outlast. Tonight's backsided blindside will make for Survivor history.

Read on past the jump for my full review of tonight's episode.

Survivor China: Ready to Bite the Apple

James from Survivor China(S15E10) Now, you can tell this episode of Survivor China is yet another one named for a James saying. He seems to have an Adam and Eve obsession, as well as a fixation on the apple.

I realize he's hungry and I'm not all that sure apples are indigenous to China. He could nibble on some bamboo. After all, that keeps those cool panda bears looking all that fat and healthy.

Maybe I'd call this episode, "We Don't Need No Steenkin' Apples, Give Us Bamboo!" Yeah, that's it.

Survivor China: High School Friends Contest

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Nov 8th 2007 11:58PM
James from Survivor China(S15E08) Last week the tribes (Zhan Hu and Fei Long) merged on Survivor China. Jaime was voted off and became the first member of the jury. That would lead us to this week with fewer members of the weaker Zhan Hu tribe, especially since Frosti has all but become a Fei Long since he was kidnapped. Fei Long has the numbers and the strength to survive challenges.

So, that would leave us with the real question at hand going into tonight's episode ...

Will the ex-Fei Long members pick off the ex-Zhan Hu members one by one, leaving Frosti for last out of a sense of loyalty? Or, will they turn on their own numbers to eliminated a threat?

Survivor China: I'm Not as Dumb as I Look

Survivor China's skinny gal Courtney(S15E07) Oh, I so love it when karma comes around and bites someone in the butt, don't you? Tonight's Survivor China had such a moment that it's destined to go in the show's archives as a classic, yet hilarious, blunder.

It was Yau-Man Chan's original plan during his season gone into motion through sneaky actions and dumb mistakes. And, after watching tonight's show, it couldn't have happened to a more deserving person.

We all saw the promos. Instead of being as smart as she thinks, it turns out that Jaime might be more dumb than anyone ever thought possible. After all, I didn't think she was dumb. Well, not until ...

Survivor China: That's Love, Baby! It Makes You Strong!

Todd Herzog from Survivor China(S15E06) Now that I've been reviewing Survivor: China using the actual episode titles, I have to worry that the world might run out of exclamation points. Everything is always so ... so ... emphatic in these titles. Perhaps the castaways, Courtney in particular, should save energy and not exclaim so much. I mean, after all, there has to be wasted calories, right? Todd doesn't have much meat on his bones, either.

At least it won't be a reenactment of the Donner Party, I guess. Although that might be better than the seasonal gross foods challenge which took place in tonight's episode.

Survivor China: Ride the Workhorse 'til the Tail Falls Off

Great chopsticks of fire - Survivor China reward challenge
(S15E04) "Flavor has never tasted so good. This is the delicatist thing I've ever put in my mouth." - Denise

Hmm ... I believe she was going for a variation of delicacy, but who knows? Unlike some of the castaways, I find this season of Survivor China is stepping up more each week. That is, despite the slaughter of the English language at times, it is.
