Ralph Kiser and Steve Wright Both Voted Off "Survivor 22: Redemption Island"

On tonight's "Survivor: Redemption Island" Ralph Kiser and Steve Wright were both voted out and sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with Phillip searching for and eventually finding, his swim trunks that Julie had buried before she was voted out. Later, the tribe made their way to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Matt, Mike and Julie. Matt and Mike easily beat Julie in a game of shuffleboard, sending her home for good and making her the second member of the jury. Back at camp, Rob and Grant decided that Andrea should be the first Ometepe member voted out when the time came, since she expressed regret about voting out Matt. The next day, the tribe competed in the Reward/ Immunity challenge, which was a logrolling competition. After three rounds Grant emerged the winner and was awarded immunity and a giant chocolate cake. Jeff also gave the tribe a mystery package that they couldn't open until tribal council. At camp, Steve made a final plea to the girls to turn on Rob, but they declined the offer and ran right to Rob to tell him what happened. At tribal council, the Ometepe members unsurprisingly voted out Ralph, who was sent to Redemption Island. Jeff then instructed the tribe to open the mystery package, which informed them that they were immediately taking part in their next Immunity challenge. The castaways had to memorize a series of symbols shown by Jeff. Rob remembered the most symbols and was awarded immunity. The Ometepe six then took the opportunity to boot the last remaining Zapatera member and voted out Steve.
Next week Matt, Mike, Ralph and Steve compete in a duel for the right to stay in the game!

"Cowboys" Jet and Cord McCoy Eliminated from "Amazing Race 18: Unfinished Business"

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" cowboys/brothers Jet and Cord McCoy became the sixth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the six remaining teams traveling via train from Salzburg, Austria to the tiny country of Liechtenstein. When they arrived the teams were faced with a Roadblock. One team member had to ride the entire length of the country on a motorized bike and measure the distance with an odometer. Before they could begin the task, Gary and Mallory had to complete their Speed Bump, which required them to measure the correct amount of oil and gasoline needed to power their bike. Multiple teams helped one another during the challenge, with the exception of Kent & Vyxsin and Jet & Cord, who were both left to fend for themselves. When the task was completed, the teams took another train and a bus to Zermatt, Switzerland where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between eating an entire pot of cheese fondue or delivering twenty pieces of luggage to five different nearby hotels. At the end of the Detour the teams found a Double U-Turn, which could be used to force two teams to do both Detour tasks. Zev and Justin were the first team to complete all the tasks and make it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Curacao. The Globetrotters reached the U-Turn in fifth place and unsurprisingly took the opportunity to put the final nail in the cowboys' coffin. Even without the U-Turn the cowboys were far enough behind that they were going to arrive last regardless. When they did, Phil informed them that they were eliminated from the race.

The Final 3 teams have already been leaked! To find out which teams make it to the end check out my secret boot list post here!

In the boardroom, trump revealed that the execs didn't like either team's work, but felt the women did a little bit worse. He then awarded John $20,000 for his charity. Star and Nene singled out LaToya as the weakest member of the women's team and Trump agreed, booting her from the show.

"Father/Daughter" Gary and Mallory Ervin Avoid Elimination on "Amazing Race 18"

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" father/ daughter duo Gary and Mallory Ervin avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the six remaining teams flying from Varanasi, India to Vienna, Austria. Jet and Cord again didn't book the flight that landed in Vienna earliest, but instead got one that arrived 25 minutes later. When the teams landed they went to a parking garage where they found a Ford Focus which had a video clue from Phil. The clue instructed the teams to put the car in reverse and use the rear view camera to find their next destination, Schloss Schallaburg. Once there, they were given a book that directed them to the Austrian National Library where they found this leg's Detour. The choice of tasks was between transporting a couch one mile from the Freud Museum to the University of Vienna or eating two servings of traditional Austrian food within a 12 minute revolution of a Ferris wheel. Many teams chose the food task but couldn't finish the meal within the time limit, allowing Jet and Cord to catch up. When the task was completed, teams drove to Salzburg where a Roadblock awaited them. One team member had to clean three chimneys using a weight tied to a rope. Zev and Justin were the first team to complete all the tasks and made it to the Pit Stop first, earning them both a new 2012 Ford Focus. Gary and Mallory arrived last, but were only given a Speed Bump since it was a non-elimination.

Gary Busey Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4" Donald Trump finally fired actor/walking disaster Gary Busey. The episode began with the teams learning that their next task was to produce a live 20 minute cooking demonstration promoting Omaha Steaks. Gary Busey was picked as project manager for the men, while Hope Dworaczyk stepped up on the women's side. Gary's lack of leadership on the men's team aggravated the guys, who decided to let Gary dig his own grave. The women, on the other hand, worked well together as a team. When the time came for the live demonstrations, the executives and an audience were brought in to watch both teams. In the boardroom, Trump revealed that the execs liked both teams but decided the women were better. He then awarded Hope $20,000 for her charity. Again, the men pushed hard for Gary to be fired and this time Donald finally obliged and sent him packing.

On tonight's "Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" father/ daughter duo Ron & Christina Hsu became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the seven remaining teams flying from Kolkata to Varanasi, India. Jet & Cord overlooked the earliest flight departing Kolkata and instead booked one that arrived in Varanasi an hour after the other teams. When the teams landed they made their way to a Tonga stand, where a Roadblock awaited. One team member had to search the streets for six sadhus, or holy men, that matched the photos they were given. Each sadhu would give them a piece of paper with a word on it, that when put together made up a phrase. When the task was completed, teams made their way to Tulsi Ghat where they found a Detour. The choice of tasks was between making fifty patties out of manure, sticking them to a wall and using dried patties to start a fire or transporting two hay bales from an island in the Ganges to an address written on the bales. Jet & Cord were able to catch up to the other teams and completed the tasks quickly. The Globetrotters were the first team to arrive at this leg's Pit Stop, earning them a trip for two to Hawaii. Ron & Christina weren't so lucky, as they arrived last & were eliminated from the race.

Mark McGrath Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4" Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath became the sixth star fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their next task was to create an interactive experience promoting Australian Gold sunscreen. Mark McGrath was chosen as project manager of the men's team, while LaToya Jackson stepped up on the women's side. Mark chose a pirate theme for the men's team, while LaToya played it safe and went with a generic beach theme. Gary Busey continued to be a nuisance for the men, requiring Lil John to watch him so he wouldn't mess things up. On the women's team, LaToya chose not to use Hope as a model even though she's Playmate of the Year. When both teams finished work on their projects, the Australian Gold executives looked at each setup and picked a winner. In the boardroom, Trump revealed that it was a close call but in the end the women had edged out a win. He then awarded LaToya $40,000 for her charity. The guys again pushed for Gary to be fired, but Trump placed the blame on project manager Mark for coming up with a bad theme and fired him. Gary Busey lives to see another day!

Matt Elrod Re-Enters "Survivor: Redemption Island" and Immediately Gets Voted Off Again

On tonight's "Survivor: Redemption Island" Matt Elrod won his last duel, re-entered the game and was then immediately voted out again. The episode began with all the castaways heading to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Matt and Sarita. Jeff informed everyone that the winner of this duel would get to re-enter the game. The duel challenge consisted of balancing between two walls with only two small foot pegs for support. Despite an injured foot Matt was able to outlast Sarita, sending her home for good. Jeff then announced that the two tribes had merged and that voted out castaways would continue to go to Redemption Island. The merged tribe made their way to a new beach where a huge feast awaited them. During the feast Rob proposed the new tribe name Murlonio, which he said was Spanish for "from the sea, united" but was really just the name of one of Amber's stuffed animals. Later, Mike approached Matt about joining the Zapatera five and voting out Rob. Matt was torn between taking Mike's offer or staying with his old tribe. The next day, the castaways competed in their first individual Immunity challenge which consisted of balancing three balls on a wooden disk. The challenge came down to Mike and Natalie, with Natalie ultimately pulling out the win. Back at camp, Matt decided to stick with his old tribe and told Rob about the deal Mike offered to jump over to the other side. Rob didn't like that Matt even contemplated switching sides and decided he needed to be voted out again. He gathered all his tribemates and told them to vote out Matt. At tribal council, Ralph wasted his hidden immunity idol by playing it on Mike. The former Ometepe members had just enough votes to get rid of Matt, who was voted out for the second time and sent back to Redemption Island where he'll wait for his next competitor.

Jose Canseco Leaves and Richard Hatch Fired on Tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 4" former baseball player Jose Canseco left the show voluntarily, while "Survivor" winner Richard Hatch was fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with Trump calling the teams back into the boardroom to announce this week's task. The teams were told they would have to create their own works of art and then sell them to the highest bidder. They would also have to design their own unique baseball cap. John Rich was chosen as project manager for the men, while Marlee Matlin stepped up on the women's team. Before the task began, though, Jose got some bad news about his dad and chose to leave the show to be with him. Donald gave him $25,000 for his charity before he left. After the teams bought art supplies for their projects, they began painting. When Meat Loaf thought Gary Busey had taken his art supplies he went crazy, screaming at him uncontrollably. Mark McGrath and John Rich had to break up the fight and eventually Meat Loaf found his supplies in a corner. On the women's team, LaToya Jackson donated a rare shirt featuring her brother, Michael. The women also got stuck in traffic when they waited too long to head to the gallery. At the galleries, both teams had huge donations including a $470,000 check from one of John's friends. In the boardroom, Trump revealed that this task alone raised more money than any entire Apprentice season! In the end, the women crushed the men by earning $360,000 more than them. Trump then made a shocking move and asked the women whether or not he should fire one of the men. Unsurprisingly, they said yes. Even though all the men thought Gary should go, Trump blamed Richard for raising the least amount of money and fired him. The Trump has spoken.
