Cochran Voted Off "Survivor 23: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" John Cochran became the thirteenth castaway voted out and was sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with Cochran pleading to the core group of five Upolus to keep him in the game and vote out Edna at the next tribal council instead. Albert and Coach seemed to like the idea, but the other three weren't buying what Cochran was selling. The next day, the tribe traveled to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Ozzy, Dawn and Whitney. The challenge consisted of balancing various sized dishes on the end of an arm-like device. Dawn's dishes were the first to fall, followed soon after by Whitney's. That meant that both women were eliminated from the game for good and became the third and fourth members of the jury. With Ozzy's win he was able to stay on Redemption Island another three days until a new challenger arrived. Back at camp, Albert's lazy behavior caused his tribemates to wonder if he had earned his spot in the game. The next day, the tribe competed in a Reward/Immunity challenge, which was a replay of the sandbag toss/coconut slingshot game from earlier this season. Albert, Rick and Sophie were the three castaways who moved on to the second round, with Albert ultimately winning the challenge and earning himself immunity. He was also awarded a spa treatment with a shower and a massage. He was allowed to choose one other person to take part in the reward and he chose Coach. He then asked Jeff if he could give away his own reward and give it to another person. Jeff said yes and Albert gave the reward to Cochran. After their massages, Cochran approached Coach with the idea of teaming up with Albert and Edna and voting out Rick. Coach was torn between staying true to the original alliance of five or flipping to Edna and Cochran, knowing they would never vote him out. At tribal council, Coach decided to stick with his original alliance and booted Cochran. Next week, he'll duel challenge king Ozzy for the right to stay in the game.

"Grandparents" Bill & Cathi Alden the Seventh Team Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" grandparents Bill and Cathi Alden became the seventh team eliminated from the race. The episode began with Andy & Tommy and Bill & Cathi completing the bodybuilding task and arriving at the Pit Stop. Even though Bill & Cathi were the last team to check in, they weren't eliminated since the leg continued on. The five teams were given clues that instructed them to drive to the Ford Proving Grounds in Lommel, Belgium where they found a Roadblock. One team member had to test drive a Ford Mustang in three different challenges. First, they had to accelerate to 100 mph and brake in a designated spot. Next, they had to navigate a slalom course within 16 seconds and then finish the task by performing two victory doughnuts. Not surprisingly, all the men decided to do this challenge. When the task was completed, teams were instructed to the town of Ghent, where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between building a raft using provided materials and searching the Lieve canal for two halves of their next clue or building a waffle stand and baking & decorating 18 Belgian waffles to a chef's satisfaction. Finally, teams traveled to Muur van Geraardsbergen where they released 100 homing pigeons and were given an address to where the pigeons flew to. Once there, they retrieved their last clue from one of the pigeons. It revealed that this leg's Pit Stop was the Atomium in Brussels. Andy & Tommy were the first team to complete all the tasks and arrived at the Pit Stop first, earning them both a new 2012 Ford Mustang. Bill & Cathi never got out of last place and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Now, only four teams and two legs of the race remain!

LeRoy Bell and Lakoda Rayne Both Voted Off on "The X Factor USA" Double Elimination

On tonight's "X Factor USA" results show, Lakoda Rayne and LeRoy Bell were both voted off in a double elimination. Yesterday, the Top 9 acts performed inspirational songs and dedicated them to people they were thankful for. The judges thought that Josh Krajcik & Melanie Amaro were the standouts of the night. Tonight, Steve revealed that the act with the least amount of viewer votes was Paula's last group Lakoda Rayne. Since it was a double elimination, they were automatically booted from the competition with no chance to save themselves. Steve then revealed that the next two acts with the least amount of votes was LeRoy Bell & Marcus Canty. Those two contestants were able to sing one more time before the judges voted on who should go home. L.A. and Simon voted to send home LeRoy, while Nicole and Paula voted to send home Marcus, creating the first Deadlock of the season. Since the judges were split on who to eliminate, the decision shifted back to America. Steve revealed that the person with the fewer amount of votes was LeRoy and he was eliminated from the competition. Did the right two acts go home? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

"Bachelorette" Couple Ali & Roberto Break Up

"Bachelorette" couple Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have announced that they have split up. "Ali and Roberto have ended their relationship" a representative for the former "Bachelorette" couple told People magazine today. "As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple's privacy." They got engaged and moved to San Diego together last year and had set a wedding date for this past spring. The wedding was postponed, however, when Ali broke her femur in a kickboxing session. Last month, Us Weekly reported that the pair were "miserable" in their relationship due to frequent big fights and the challenge of juggling their busy work schedules. "Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one" a mutual friend told Us. "They're either extremely happy or they can't stand each other. They bring out the worst in each other". That leaves only two "Bachelorette" couples left: Trista and Ryan & Ashley and JP.

"Grandparents" Bill and Cathi Alden Lag Behind on Continuing Leg of "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" grandparents Bill and Cathi Alden stumbled on the final challenge and seemed to fall behind the other teams, however what they don't know is that the leg isn't over and the teams are still racing. The episode began with the five remaining teams being instructed to find the statue of Hans Christian Anderson somewhere in Copenhagen. When they found it, they also found a Roadblock, which required one team member to memorize a poem on the base of the statue and then use a map on a bicycle's wheel to ride themselves to a nearby theater where they would have to recite the poem verbatim in a dramatic reading. When the task was completed, teams were told to drive to Legoland Billund where they had to put together a Lego puzzle while sitting in a spinning teacup type ride. The completed puzzle revealed their next destination: Hamburg train station, where they were instructed to take a train to Brussels, Belgium. All teams got on the same train to Brussels, which made a stop halfway through in Cologne. Ernie and Cindy, however, mistakenly lost their tickets from Cologne to Brussels which made them worried that they would fall way behind the other teams. In the end, though, the train conductor never asked for their tickets and they arrived in Brussels with the rest of the teams. Their first stop in Brussels was the European Parliament building, where teams were given a clue that instructed them to go the Concert Noble and take part in a bodybuilding competition. Once there, teams had to put on bikinis, cover themselves in tanning oil, and learn a bodybuilding pose routine. They then had to perform the routine for a set of judges and receive a score of 12 or better in order to complete the task. Marcus and Amani were the first team to earn 12 points and made it to the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to Panama. Phil then told them that the leg wasn't over and gave them their next clue. The episode ended with Bill and Cathi & Andy and Tommy battling it out for last place.

Stacey Francis Voted Off "The X Factor USA"

On tonight's "X Factor USA" results show, Stacey Francis from Nicole's Over 30 category became the third act voted off the show. Yesterday, the Top 10 acts performed rock songs in the hopes of winning America's votes. All four mentors agreed that Josh Krajcik was the standout of the night. On the other hand, there was some harsh words for LeRoy Bell, Lakoda Rayne and Stacey Francis. Tonight, Steve revealed that the two acts with the least amount of viewer votes were Stacey Francis and Astro. Those two contestants then sang one more time before the judges voted on who should go home. However, Astro almost decided not to perform because he was upset about being in the bottom two. Even with Astro's temper tantrum, all the judges except for Stacey's mentor Nicole decided to vote out Stacey instead, eliminating her from the competition. Did the right person go home? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

Dawn Meehan and Whitney Duncan Both Voted Off "Survivor 23: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" Dawn Meehan and Whitney Duncan were both voted out and sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with the whole tribe traveling to Redemption Island to watch the duel between Ozzy, Jim and Keith. The challenge consisted of balancing two poles between the tops of castaway's hands and a board above their heads. Jim was the first person to drop his poles, followed soon after by Keith. That meant that both guys were eliminated from the game for good and became the first and second jury members. With Ozzy's win, he was able to stay on Redemption Island until a new challenger arrived. Back at camp, Cochran debated whether to stay with the Upolu members or rejoin his old tribemates, Dawn and Whitney. The next day, the tribe competed in an Immunity challenge, which consisted of balancing a bowl of rice on their heads and walking across two teeter-totters to fill a basket on the other side. Sophie ended up winning the challenge and was awarded immunity. Jeff also told the tribe that there would be a twist at tribal council. Back at camp, Dawn and Whitney approached Cochran and Albert about forming an alliance and getting rid of Edna. Albert thought it was a good idea, but knew they needed one more person to make it work. He decided to approach Sophie with the plan, but she was hesitant to rock the boat. At tribal council, the Upolu members decided to stick together and voted out Dawn. Jeff then announced that the twist was that another Immunity challenge would take place immediately and one more castaway would be voted out. The challenge consisted of answering a series of survival related questions. Sophie narrowly edged out Whitney for the win, earning her second straight immunity necklace. It was a no-brainer for Upolu as they unanimously voted out Whitney. Now, Ozzy must duel Dawn & Whitney and only one castaway will stay in the game!

"Father/Son" Laurence and Zac Sunderland Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" father/son adventurers Laurence and Zac Sunderland became the sixth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the six remaining teams flying from Malawi, Africa to Copenhagen, Denmark. The teams were given a spot on a flight that landed in Copenhagen the next morning at 8:20am, however all the teams except Amani and Marcus got flights that arrived that evening. It didn't really matter though, since the first destination - Vor Frelsers Kirke tower - didn't open til 7:30 in the morning. When it did open, teams climbed to the top of the tower and searched for two clues that when combined revealed the name of their next destination - Frederiksborg Slot. Jeremy and Sandy read the wrong clue, causing them to fall behind the other teams and giving Marcus and Amani a chance to catch up. When teams arrived, they found a Roadblock, which required one team member to dress in a period costume and learn a complex three-part dance from an instructor. When the task was completed, teams were instructed to Frilandsmuseet where a Detour awaited. The choice of tasks was between laying out a proper rabbit show jumping course and then having a rabbit run through the course twice or making six sticks of butter using a traditional butter churn and then stamping out the sticks using a special mold. After that, the teams traveled to Karlstrup Windmill where they found another Double U-Turn. Ernie and Cindy were the first team to reach the Double U-Turn and decided to use it on Bill and Cathi, forcing them to go back and complete the other Detour task. When Bill and Cathi arrived and saw they were U-Turned, they decided to also penalize a team and they picked Laurence and Zac. Unsurprisingly, Ernie and Cindy arrived at the Pit Stop first and won a trip for two to Fiji. Bill and Cathi not only completed both Detour tasks, but ended up coming in second as well. Laurence and Zac, however, couldn't overcome their U-Turn and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Who will be the next to go?

In the end, he booted Stereo Hogzz, eliminating them from the competition. Did the right act go home? Comment and share your thoughts!

Jim & Ozzy Voted Off "Survivor: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" Ozzy Lusth and Jim Rice were both voted out and sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with the aftermath of last week's tribal council where Cochran flipped on his former tribe. Needless to say, they weren't too happy with him and they let him know it. The next day, the tribe competed in an Immunity challenge, which consisted of first tossing a coconut into a hole in the ground. The first four castaways to make a shot moved on to the second round, which consisted of navigating an obstacle course with coconut water in their mouths til they reached a tube which they had to fill by spitting out the water. Jim was the first person to fill his tube and was awarded immunity. Back at camp, Jim contemplated giving his immunity necklace to Ozzy in the hopes of rattling the Upolu members. However, at tribal council, Jim didn't go through with the plan which sealed Ozzy's fate and sent him to Redemption Island for the second time. The next day, the tribe competed in another Immunity challenge or should I say three members of the tribe. Jeff offered the castaways pastries and iced coffee in exchange for sitting out the challenge. The entire Upolu alliance, including Cochran opted to take the feast, leaving the immunity to be decided between Dawn, Jim, and Whitney. Those three had to stand on a narrow beam while balancing a ball on a wooden bow. Whitney outlasted the other two and won immunity. Back at camp, Jim scrambled to save himself from being voted out by approaching Albert and Sophie about teaming up. However they didn't take the bait & Jim was booted 7-3 at tribal council. Now Keith, Ozzy and Jim will duel for the right to stay in the game!

"Siblings" Justin and Jennifer Young the Fifth Team Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 19"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 19" siblings Justin and Jennifer Young became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with all seven remaining teams traveling via bus from Lilongwe to Salima, Malawi. When they arrived they immediately found a Roadblock, which required one team member to use a bicycle taxi known as a kibaza to take a customer holding fish to one of three different destinations in the village of Salima. Before Amani and Marcus could start the Roadblock, they had to complete their Speed Bump task which consisted of solving a slide puzzle that depicted the Malawian flag. Jennifer mistakenly left the clue with her brother when she went to do the Roadblock, causing her to have a hard time figuring out how to complete the task. By the time she traveled back to retrieve the clue, all the other teams had moved on. Next up, the teams made their way to Lake Malawi where a Detour awaited them. The choice of tasks was between paddling out to a series of drummers on the lake and then paddling back to the finish line or unloading a ferry on the lake by carrying two boxes of cabbage, two bundles of sugar cane, two brooms, one chair, one fan, and eight passengers to the shore. Every team except for Amani and Marcus chose the paddling task. Ernie and Cindy had a difficult time paddling and decided to use their Express Pass, allowing them to skip the task altogether. When the task was completed, teams traveled to the Jamaica Shop and found a Double U-Turn, which let two teams make two other teams go back and complete the other Detour task. Laurence and Zac where the only team to use the U-Turn, and they mistakenly used it on a team that was ahead of them - Amani and Marcus. In a race to the Pit Stop, Andy and Tommy narrowly edged out Ernie and Cindy for first place, earning them $7,500 each. Justin and Jennifer couldn't overcome their earlier mistake and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. Six teams remain, who will be eliminated next?

All four mentors had positive comments for most of the acts, although Simon didn't love LeRoy Bell or Lakoda Rayne. Tonight, however, Steve revealed that the two acts with the least amount of viewer votes were Paula's groups inTENsity & Stereo Hogzz. Those two groups then sang for their lives one last time before the judges voted on who should go home. Simon voted to send home Stereo Hogzz, but the other three judges picked inTENsity, making them the first act eliminated from the competition. Did the right act go home?

Keith Voted Off "Survivor 23: South Pacific"

On tonight's "Survivor: South Pacific" 26 year old water treatment tech Keith Tollefson became the eighth castaway voted out and was sent to Redemption Island. The episode began with Ozzy arriving at Redemption Island and telling Christine that the reason he was voted out was because Cochran played the hidden immunity idol. The next day, both tribes traveled to Redemption Island to watch Ozzy and Christine's duel. Before the challenge began, Ozzy put on a show and pretended to be angry with Cochran for voting him out. However, the Upolu members didn't buy it due to Ozzy's bad acting. Jeff then announced that the winner of this duel would get to re-enter the game. The challenge consisted of using rope and sticks to make a pole in order to retrieve three keys. Ozzy crushed Christine in the duel, earning himself the right to re-enter the game and sending Christine home for good. Jeff then announced that the two tribes were now merged, meaning Ozzy's plan ended up working just as he wanted. After the traditional merge feast, Cochran started playing his role of double agent for Savaii, but soon began to contemplate flipping over to Upolu for real. However, he did decide to give Ozzy back his hidden immunity idol. Later, the tribe competed in the first individual Immunity Challenge, which consisted of balancing on a small perch while holding a coconut between two ropes. The last man and last woman balancing their coconuts would each win immunity. In the end, Dawn won immunity for the women and Ozzy took the prize for the men. Back at camp, the former Savaii members decided they would use the hidden idol on Whitney, meaning three of their group would now be safe at tribal council. Cochran, however, still didn't like the possibility of the vote being a tie and everyone without immunity pulling rocks to decide who would go. At tribal council, the vote did indeed end up as a tie between Keith and Rick, forcing a re-vote before the inevitable pulling of the rocks. Not wanting to put his fate in the game to chance, Cochran decided to switch his vote to Keith, sending him to Redemption Island. With Cochran now aligned with Upolu, do the former Savaii have any hope left?
