Everyone Loves the 'Survivor' Guys

by Stephanie Earp, posted May 18th 2010 2:45PM
On the 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' reunion show on Sunday, Jeff Probst showed a composite photo of what a 'Survivor' winner looks like, meant to show that the show's winners are a diverse bunch -- old, young, male, female, white, black, Latino, mean, nice, crazy and sane.

The winners, maybe. But the fan favorites are a different story. What Russell Hantz said on the reunion show is true: if America chose the winners, that composite photo would likely be wearing a fedora and a tie-dyed tank top.

When it comes to the most popular players on 'Survivor', there is definitely a type. They are straight-talkers who like to tell the other players exactly what they plan to do. They have a strict code, whether it's all-about-me or do-unto-others. They are usually very talkative and end up functioning as narrators of the show through their interviews.

And oh yeah, they are men.

In fact, other than a tendency to run their mouths, it's about the only thing they have in common.

Last 'Survivor' Standing on 'Heroes vs Villains' Finale (VIDEO)

Who Won 'Survivor: Heroes vs Villains'? Unlike contestants on 'The Amazing Race' or 'The Celebrity Apprentice,' finalists of 'Survivor' hear the winner announced weeks after competition has ended. And the finale of 'Survivor: Heroes vs Villains' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) was no different.

[Spoiler alert.]


It had been a while since Parvati, Russell and Sandra had suffered through the final challenge and last tribal council, when they appealed to ex-contestants to give them a million bucks.

So which Villain would it be: manipulative social climber Parvati, the ever devious Russell or coattail-riding Sandra? Did the jury make the right decision?

'Survivor' Exit Interview: Another Two Bite the Dust

by Audrey Fine, posted May 7th 2010 4:30PM

This 20th season of 'Survivor' has been unpredictable in every sense of the word -- blindsides at every turn, mega-bold moves, hidden immunity idols galore -- and last night's episode of 'Heroes vs. Villains' was no exception.

The stress of playing back-to-back games is clearly taking its toll on Russell Hantz who laid in to Rupert Boneham with an expletive-laden diatribe that surely gave the CBS censors fits. "Get your tie-dye ready, 'cause you're going home," he warned with in the only phrase we can't print here.

'Survivor' Exit Interview: Big Girls Do Cry

by Audrey Fine, posted Apr 30th 2010 4:02PM
You can't teach an old dog new tricks -- especially when they're playing 'Survivor.' Last night's episode of 'Heroes vs. Villains' proved that old axiom beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Candice Woodcock, taking a page from her 'Cook Islands' playbook, flipped on her Heroes tribe. Meanwhile, Russell Hantz, spurred on by Parvati Shallow's secretiveness, summoned another immunity idol into his meaty little paws and Amanda Kimmel did what Amanda Kimmel always does -- played nice.

Guess what doesn't get you a million bucks? Playing nice.

A Girl Fight on 'Survivor'There was a brawl over a clue on 'Survivor' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS). Pretty awesomely, the fight involved two young women in skimpy outfits. Amanda, Danielle and Colby got to go on a reward trip to author Robert Louis Stevenson's house. While there, they ate popcorn and watched the movie 'Treasure Island.' Danielle then found a clue hidden in the popcorn, and tried to conceal it on the floor. Which is when rival Amanda got mad.

Coach's 'Survivor' Exit Interview

by Audrey Fine, posted Apr 9th 2010 4:50PM
Benjamin "Coach" Wade became the latest victim to succumb to the chaos in his tribe on Thursday night's episode of 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,' as the once formidable Villains lost even more ground to the reinvigorated Heroes.

The Villains had a tough time re-grouping after last week's ouster of 'Boston' Rob Mariano and, after a "bowling for carbs" reward saw the heroes win their third straight challenge -- and chow down on pizza galore -- morale dipped even lower.

Back at Villain central, as per usual, people began jockeying for position. Scheming Sandra Diaz-Twine hatched a plan to save her -- and fellow weak link, Courtney Yates -- "I'll be like, 'Hey Russell, Coach wants you gone.' And I'll bet that Russell [Hanz] will believe me and get rid of Coach," Sandra plotted.

What to Watch: April 5 - 11

by Stephanie Earp, posted Apr 5th 2010 12:40PM


Bones
- Wednesday April 7, 8 pm, Global/Fox

For the 100th episode of 'Bones', David Boreanaz directs a backward-looking episode that recalls the early days of the Booth-Brennan relationship and how romance almost got in the way of the work. I too remember the early days of 'Bones' - the expensive 3-D technology they used to reconstruct a body, seeing Angel in a suit, the awkward dialogue of the overly-techy techies. I admit, I didn't think the show would make it this far. But there's no doubt Emily Deschanel and Boreanaz have great chemistry and that the show has grown and improved since those early days. Is it the new 'Moonlighting'? Not exactly, but it still deserves kudos.

Boston Rob Mariano's 'Survivor' Exit Interview

by Audrey Fine, posted Apr 2nd 2010 3:10PM
"I'm after him. He's after me. May the best man win," a matter-of-fact Russell Hantz said of the power struggle between him and Rob Mariano on Thursday night's episode of 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.'

Whether or not the "best" man won is up for debate, but unfortunately for Boston Rob, the revitalized Heroes tribe easily bagged both the "yay, we get to eat" reward and the puzzle challenge for immunity and his Villains were sent to Tribal Council.

With four votes against him, Rob saw his hopes for a first win dashed when Jerri Manthey's new alliance with Russell had her flip on Rob and just like that, the fan favorite was sent packing while the "hobbit on crack" (his pet name for Russell) had somehow maneuvered himself into the power position.

How does all this sit with Boston Rob who, after three times at bat, has to be a little jaded? Here's what he had to say about the season, the ouster and the Russell.

James Clement's 'Survivor' Exit Interview

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 26th 2010 3:00PM
Thanks to March Madness,'Survivor' fans got their fill a day early when a double elimination episode of 'Heroes vs. Villains' aired Wednesday and sent two players packing. Hobbled "Hero" James Clement was the fifth in his tribe to have his torch snuffed and cocky Tyson Apostol became the second Villain ousted from the game.

And this wasn't the first time an injury caused James' downfall -- which he couldn't quite believe. "I went 32 years without ever being in a hospital," he told AOL TV in his exit interview. (Click here to read what Tyson, who, despite all evidence to the contrary, maintains that he's "still pretty awesome," had to say for himself after his ouster.)

Tyson Apostol's 'Survivor' Exit Interview

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 25th 2010 3:30PM
Thanks to March Madness, 'Survivor' fans got their fill a day early when a double elimination episode of 'Heroes vs. Villains' aired Wednesday and sent two players packing; Tyson Apostol became the second ousted "Villain" of the season and the hobbled "Hero," James Clement, limped in the footsteps of four before him.

In a carabiner-through-ropes challenge that had players from both tribes vying for individual immunity, Candice eked out a victory over her fellow heroes -- effectively keeping her neck off the chopping block -- and Boston Rob prevailed, yet again, for the villains.

When the two winners were pitted against each other in the same challenge for a sudden death "hot dogs and all the fixins" reward, Rob triumphed and his band of dastardly bad guys were licking their lips in anticipation of chowing on franks while watching the Heroes throw down at their Tribal Council.

Tom Westman's 'Survivor' Exit Interview

by Audrey Fine, posted Mar 12th 2010 4:30PM
Last week, Tom Westman managed to escape elimination on 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' by playing the hidden immunity idol he'd found, but last night, the FDNY lieutenant (and real-life hero) had his fire extinguished once and for all.

Not that the ouster came as any great shock. He'd even predicted as much when Jeff Probst asked who was going home. "It's me tonight unless a couple of good people vote for the team," he said, "and for our strength and for our unity and not for the numbers."

Bingo.
