Last week marked a non-elimination episode on The Amazing Race, which means, of course, that somebody is going home tonight. Jonathan and Harley had a terrible time catching up, but hopefully, Team New Kid will be able to turn things around and remain in the competition.
Nina Poersch had a rough ride on Survivor: Worlds Apart. The No Collar tribe member found herself at odds with the younger people on her team because of the fact she’s deaf. During our one-on-one interview with Nina, she discussed how Joe questioned her ability in the game because of her deafness, revealed why she was so emotional and explained how she became deaf. Plus, she dished details on how her hairstylist’s connections got her a spot on the show.
After two strong episodes to start the season, something was off in this one. The storytelling was definitely disjointed from showcasing a moment of monkey sex to a yo’ mama insult. It was frustrating because the only truly enjoyable element here was the stunning cinematography. Even the elimination at Tribal Council felt uneventful.
They’ve had a blast exploring Japan, but now, the couples on The Amazing Race are headed for Thailand. Will the blind date couples continue to dominate? Or will their seemingly solid relationships begin to dissolve?
Vince Sly will go down in Survivor history as the coconut salesman with feathers in his hair who gave that one girl an awkwardly long hug. Trust me. In a few weeks, that’s all mainstream viewers will remember. But as we all know with reality television, editors hold a lot of power. They craft characters any way they want to. They highlight specific personality traits to create their “perfect” story. That’s exactly what Vince says happened during his brief time on Survivor: Worlds Apart. In our one-on-one interview with Vince, he explains why he was embarrassed by the premiere episode, how he thinks he was inaccurately portrayed and weighs in on all the social media haters who have been beating him up online with labels like “creepy,” “weird” and “jealous.” Plus, he reveals the crazy coconut story that ultimately landed him a spot on the show. Enjoy!
Survivor: Worlds Apart became Survivor: Skin Island (possible future season?!?!) as a couple of castaways stripped down and strutted around their beaches in the buff. But the nudity was a distraction from the big drama already unfolding just a few days into the game that brought a big blindside at Tribal Council. Find out who got naked and which castaway had their torch snuffed inside!
The contestants on The Amazing Race have been forced to deal with crazy dance numbers, annoying blind dates and a whole lot of mud. They’re just getting started, and, as their journeys continue, they’re bound to run into drama with their partners.
So Kim, the White Collar contestant who was the first person voted off Survivor: Worlds Apart, was never actually supposed to be on this season. Initially, So was on the cast of last season — Survivor: San Juan Del Sur — with her sister for the second Blood Vs. Water. But moments before that game began, So and her sis were cut from the competition because of a health concern. So was crushed, but only for a short time because CBS wanted her for season 30. And they wanted her badly. In our one-on-one chat with So, she discussed how quickly she was asked to be on season 30, talked about her silly lie about the phony neutral beans decision and explained why she knew her torch was going to be snuffed first. Plus, she revealed why she didn’t necessarily feel like she belonged on the White Collar tribe.
This year, The Amazing Race meets Love In The Wild. Ten singles will have the opportunity to go on the most exciting — and terrifying — blind dates imaginable. They’ll be forced to compete against six existing couples, some of whom have been honing their partnership skills for several years. Who will win out: the hot new lovers or the smug, established couples?
30 seasons. 15 years. Can you believe it?!?! Survivor: Worlds Apart kicked off the reality show’s milestone season with 18 all-new castaways split up by profession and approach to life: White Collar, Blue Collar and No Collar. Host Jeff Probst has been boasting on all sorts of interviews that this cast is possibly the best in the show’s history. Will this season live up to his big statement? If the 90-minute premiere is any indication, Probst may be right. These contestants are very compelling based on this first episode alone. And Tribal Council… Wow! What a great way to start the season! Best premiere ever? Eh, probably not. But it was fun nonetheless.
