Who will be on "Survivor Heroes Vs Villains"?

With the announcement that next season's "Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains" will be another all-star cast, rumors are starting to swirl as to which memorable castaways will return. While nothing is confirmed as of yet, a rumored list of the twenty contestants has been leaked. The list seems to make a lot of sense, but again it is not fact and shouldn't be taken as such. Here's the possible lineup of returning castaways...

The Heroes:
-Colby (Australia)
-Rupert (Pearl Islands)
-Tom (Palau)
-Stephanie (Palau & Guatemala)
-Cirie (Exile Island)
-Candice (Cook Islands)
-James (China)
-Amanda (China)
-Sugar (Gabon)
-JT (Tocantins)

The Villains:
-Jerri (Australia)
-Boston Rob (Marquesas)
-Sandra (Pearl Islands)
-Danielle (Exile Island)
-Parvati (Cook Islands)
-Courtney (China)
-Randy (Gabon)
-Coach (Tocantins)
-Tyson (Tocantins)
-Russell (Samoa)

The list seems pretty accurate, although I am a little surprised by the omissions of Ozzy, Yul, and Yao Man from the Heroes & Sue, Brian & Johnny Fairplay from the Villains. Richard Hatch couldn't do the show because of his home confinement, Ethan couldn't because he's battling cancer and Amber probably didn't because she just had a baby. What do you think of the list? Who would you add or subtract? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

Natalie White Wins "Survivor 19: Samoa"

On tonight's season finale of "Survivor Samoa" Natalie White was crowned the winner and took home the $1 million prize. The finale began with Brett winning his third consecutive immunity challenge, which forced Foa Foa to turn on each other. At tribal council everyone voted out Jaison making him the eighth jury member. The next day the castaways took part in the last immunity challenge, a balance and coordination game. At long last Brett lost the challenge when Russell beat him in a nail biting face-off. Unsurprisingly, the Foa Foa members took this final opportunity to get rid of Brett and made him the last jury member. That left Russell, Natalie & Mick to make their final pleas to the jury of nine. Once everyone said their peace the jury cast their votes for the winner. Back in L.A. Jeff revealed that by a vote of 7 to 2 Natalie beat Russell making her the sole Survivor.

At the end of the reunion Jeff announced what we already suspected. That Survivor 20 would be "Heroes Vs. Villains" where twenty all stars would return to compete once again. The new season premieres February 11th and when the identities of the castaways are revealed I'll post them right here!

Shambo Waters Voted Off "Survivor Samoa"

On yesterday's penultimate "Survivor Samoa" Shannon "Shambo" Waters became the fifteenth castaway voted out of the game. It was originally supposed to be Brett that went home, but that plan was nixed when Brett won his second straight immunity challenge, a memorization game. With Brett having safety Russell, Jaison and Natalie had to decide between Mick or Shambo to go home. At tribal council the former Foa Foa members stuck together and voted out Shambo. Now four Foa Foa and Brett make up the final five. Which three will make it to the end to have a shot at winning the $1 million? Tune in Sunday for the 3 hour season finale and find out!

Joe McElderry Wins U.K's "The X Factor"

On this weekend's "X Factor" finale in the U.K. 18 year old Joe McElderry beat Olly Murs to be crowned the competition's new champ. The final started with the three remaining contestants performing three songs each. Stacey sang a duet with Michael Buble, Olly sang with Robbie Williams and Joe performed with George Michael. In the end Stacey received the fewest amount of votes and was eliminated. That left Olly and Joe to battle it out. After 24 hours of voting Joe emerged victorious and was declared winner of "The X Factor" 2009. If you live outside the U.K. you can still watch all this season's performances online here!

Dave and Monica Voted Off "Survivor Samoa"

Yesterday's "Survivor: Samoa" saw Dave Ball and Monica Padilla both voted out in a double elimination. At the first immunity challenge Jaison won his second individual immunity in a bowling event. At tribal council everyone unanimously voted out Dave, making him the fifth jury member. The next day at the second immunity challenge Brett came out of nowhere and won his first individual immunity. Back at camp Russell found out that Jaison let slip that he was a millionaire, which didn't sit well with Russell. However, at tribal council everyone banded together and voted out Monica. Now six castaways and two episodes remain. Who will be voted out next?

Meghan & Cheyne Win The Amazing Race 15

On last night's "Amazing Race 15" finale dating couple Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney crossed the finish line first and won the million dollar prize. The last three teams left Prague and flew to their final destination - Las Vegas! Once there they had to rappel face first down the side of the Mandalay Bay casino and take part in a Cirque du Soleil show at the Mirage. Brian and Ericka had an early lead, but lost it when Ericka couldn't reach the flowers at the Roadblock task. The final challenge was to count out $1 million in poker chips. Sam and Dan arrived at the task first, but were overtaken by Meghan and Cheyne who had the right amount on their first try. After a quick visit with Wayne Newton the pairs raced to the finish line where Meghan & Cheyne arrived first, followed by Sam & Dan and then Brian & Ericka. "The Amazing Race" will return in the spring, with "Big Brother"s Jeff & Jordan along for the ride!

Danyl Johnson Voted Off U.K's "X Factor"

On this weekend's "The X Factor" in the U.K. 27 year old teacher Danyl Johnson was voted off one week shy of the final. The remaining four semifinalists sang two songs each, one of which was a Michael Jackson song. When the British public voted it was Danyl who garnered the least amount of support and was sent home. That leaves three contestants to battle it out in next weekend's big finale - Olly, Stacey and Joe! One of them may be the next big international star! If you live outside the U.K. you can still watch all the performances online here!

"Bachelor" Couple Byron and Mary Split

Another "Bachelor" couple bites the dust. Sixth season star Byron Velvick and the woman he chose, Mary Delgado have ended their five year relationship. In November 2007 Mary was arrested for assaulting Byron after a dispute became physical at a friend's condominium in Florida. Then in November 2008 Mary was arrested again for public intoxication and resisting arrest when she refused to leave a bar. The couple were engaged, but had never set a date.

John Fincher Voted Off "Survivor: Samoa"

On yesterday's "Survivor: Samoa" 25 year old rocket scientist (really!) John Fincher was voted off and became the fourth member of the jury. The episode began with the Survivor auction where the castaways bid money on various food items. Jaison spent his entire $500 on an advantage at the next immunity challenge. It was money well spent because at the challenge, which was endurance, Jaison won his first individual immunity. Back at camp Shambo wanted to get rid of Dave, but the former Galu members wanted to use the opportunity to boot John. In the end, everyone blindsided John which left Shambo shocked. Next week there are two tribal councils and two more castaways going home. Who will leave and who will make it to the final six? Tune in Thursday at 8 to find out!
