Are you rooting for Russell Hantz nephew, Brandon Hantz, to take the title of Sole Survivor or will you be cheering for the returning all-stars: Ozzy & Coach?
Ozzy all the way, but I doubt he’d actually make it to the final 3 since his too big of a target.
It seems as though this season of Big Brother is shaping up to be some sort of Fan V. Favorites (I use that term loosely) scenario. I can already see why so many people would have a problem with this: pitting a bunch of newbies with people who have played the game before is sure fire way for the new people to get the boot quite easily. Also, it seems as though many would just prefer an All-Star season for next summer. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of mixing up previous cast members with new ones (I’m looking at you,Survivor!), but since I’ve only seen last summer’s installment I’m willing to give it a shot.
At last, after almost a decade on one of the most iconic competitive reality TV shows, Boston Rob has finally won Survivor. The final vote was no new ground for the veteran, Boston Rob came in second with a 4-3 vote on Survivor: All-Stars (the show he should’ve won) to his future wife, Amber Brkich. It came as no surprise to those who have kept up with the show throughout this past season. As fellow contestant David Murphy said during the final jury in which he did not question any of the final survivors, but pleaded to the rest of the jury to vote for Boston Rob, there wasn’t anyone else to vote for. Boston Rob was the clear winner between Phillip and Ashley—two contestants he carried to the final because of their weakness in challenges and the fact that they weren’t all too popular with the jury.
Not only did Boston Rob gain the title of sole survivor and the million dollar prize, but he pulled double duty this past Sunday night by winning America’s vote and an extra $100,000 cash prize. Next up for Rob, he’s set to co-host Around the World in 80 Days a new reality on different, eccentric modes of transportation that’s poised to air on History Channel later this year.
As the final days of Survivor: Redemption Island approach, the unique and ever entertaining alliance aptly titled ‘Stealth R Us’ that consists of Boston Rob, Grant and the amazing Phillip a.k.a. The Mentalist, The Assassin and the Specialist come to a screeching halt. Like any true Survivor alliance, Stealth R Us is not a democracy it’s a dictatorship. Boston Rob has been able to pull the strings on every single execution since the first day at camp, but this was the first time he was truly caught between a rock and the proverbial hard place. He had to choose between saving fellow Stealth R Us member Grant or choose the sweet and innocent Natalie, whose back he’s had from the beginning. Boston Rob doing what Boston Rob does chose the young girl to bring one step closer to the finals and sent Grant packing to Redemption Island. Boston Rob has given himself nice room to possibly win immunity in the next challenge with still having the hidden immunity idol at his disposal. Hopefully, the Redemption Island ‘survivor’ won’t throw a wrench in his perfectly manicured plan to finally win the game he’s so desperately yearns for.
All hail the smartest contestant on Survivor: Redemption Island, Boston Rob. Though it is his fourth time on the show, it’s no surprise why he’s the smartest and best player this season (oh, and the fact that he’s surrounded by idiots doesn’t hurt either!). Rob was able to convince a group of people to name the newly merged tribe, Merlonio which he says means from the sea in Spanish. One problem: the word Merlonio isn’t even a word in the Spanish language. Rob fooled everyone into naming the tribe after his wife’s stuffed animal. Now if that’s not a power move for the million dollars, then I don’t know what is.
Hmmmm… starting this new blog on a whim. My name is Liz and I’m a 22 year old senior in college. I’m currently stuck at an internship doing things that I don’t like doing, researching a topic that I thought was perfect for me and dreading every single day. With graduation looming over me like a level 5 tropical storm, I decided to forgo any “real” studying and hard work and concentrate on what makes me happy—TV.
I could rattle on and on the countless Reality shows that I’ve subjected my poor little retinas into watching, but that would just be ludicrous. But, since you asked so nicely, here’s a short list of shows that I just can’t stop watching:
- The Real World: 25 seasons. I’m 22 years old. I’ve seen every episode. It’s sad isn’t it.
- Road Rules: 14 seasons. Let’s keep it in the BMP (Bunim Murray Productions, for all you newbies out ther) family. They’ve also made me a prisoner to my remote with the always entertaining spin-off of The Real World & Road Rules, The Challenge.
- Survivor: 22 seasons. I watched a few when I was younger, but I failed to appreciate the sheer brilliance of what some like to call ‘the granddaddy of all reality shows’. After taking a break, I caught up with the first all-star season and the rest as they say is pure history.
- Real Housewives of… the world?: Unfortunately that damn Bravo Network just keeps tempting me! First it was Orange County & NYC, but they just couldn’t stop there. Oh no! Atlanta (my personal fave!), New Jersey, Washington D.C., Beverly Hills and Miami! Andy Cohen, you’re an evil, evil man!
- Top Chef: 8 seasons deep in chorizo. Sadly I’ve only seen from season 3 on. But, nonetheless I like to think that I’ve done a good job watching every single episode since then!
Honestly, the list is endless and quite embarrassing. Any real reality TV connoisseur has also dutifully kept Jersey Shore, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Teen Mom 1 & 2, 16 & Pregnant and Basketball Wives on their current rotation. Let’s face it, we all love a little bad TV. Well, in my case, a little is an understatement.
