Jonas Otsuji Voted Off "Survivor: One World"

On tonight's "Survivor 24: One World" 37 year old sushi chef Jonas Otsuji became the seventh castaway voted off the show. The episode began with the newly merged tribe returning from tribal council and enjoying the merge feast. The next day, Tarzan approached the guys in the hopes of reforming the men's alliance, but Troyzan, Jay and Michael wanted none of it. The castaways then competed in the Reward Challenge, where they were randomly split into two teams and took part in an obstacle course. Four members of each team had to dig themselves underneath a log in the sand and then crawl under a wooden rack. They then had to dig up a bag of puzzle pieces and race back through the obstacle course, where two other team members used those pieces to assemble a puzzle. The teams went back and forth with the lead until the puzzle portion, when Christina and Troyzan pulled out the win for their team. The six winners were awarded pizza, beer and a secret note to be read later. After the team enjoyed their reward Alicia read the note, which revealed that there was a new immunity idol hidden on their beach. The six castaways agreed to keep the news between themselves. Back at camp, Jonas and Tarzan got into a heated argument over Tarzan approaching Michael about reforming the men's alliance. Early the next day, Troyzan went searching for the hidden immunity idol and ended up finding it in a tree. Later, the castaways competed in the first individual Immunity Challenge, which consisted of standing on a small platform while balancing three balls on a wooden disc. One by one the castaways dropped their balls until only Kat and Troyzan remained. In the end, Troyzan took the win and was awarded the immunity necklace. At camp, the post-switch Salani tribe debated whether to vote out Tarzan or Jonas. At tribal council, Jonas and Tarzan got into another spat, causing Tarzan to state that he was voting out Jonas. The former Salani members did the same thing and voted out Jonas, sending him home 10-2 and making him the first member of the jury. Now, eleven castaways remain!

Tennis Great Martina Navratilova the First Celebrity Voted Off "Dancing with the Stars 14"

On tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" results show tennis legend Martina Navratilova became the first celebrity voted off the show.

Actress Melissa Gilbert and tennis player Martina Navratilova landed at the bottom with 40 and 37 points out of 60, respectively. Tonight, when the viewer votes were added, it was Martina who garnered the least support and was eliminated from the competition.

"Jersey Friends" Joey Fitness and Danny Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 20"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" New Jersey friends Joey "Fitness" Lasalla and Danny Horal became the fifth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the seven remaining teams flying from Bavaria, Germany to Baku, Azerbaijan. When they landed, the teams were instructed to drive to the Temple Ateshgah where a Fast Forward awaited them. Rachel & Dave and Joey & Danny were the first two teams to grab a clue and they both decided to attempt the Fast Forward. That task required them to travel to a nearby market where they would have to unload 150 bales of hay and then stack them ten long, three wide and five high. The two teams were neck and neck until the very end, when Rachel & Dave took the lead and ended up winning the Fast Forward. That allowed them to skip all the other tasks & head straight to the Pit Stop. Unsurprisingly, they checked in first and were both awarded a brand new 2013 Ford Taurus SHO. The other teams faced the Roadblock, which required one team member to participate in a helicopter crash training exercise. They had to enter a helicopter simulator that would submerge in a pool and flip over. They would then have to knock out a window and swim to a nearby lifeboat. When the task was completed, teams traveled to the Toghrul Karabakh Carpet Shop where a Detour awaited. The choice of tasks was between traveling to a fruit market and searching through an old car filled with a ton of apples for one apple marked with a race flag or traveling to a health spa and cleaning crude oil off of a client using a shoehorn. The oil task proved to be much easier than the apple one, as the teams who chose that task arrived at the Pit Stop first. Joey and Danny couldn't make up the time they lost attempting the Fast Forward and arrived at the Pit Stop last, eliminating them from the race. The show returns in 2 weeks with the six remaining teams continuing the race in Tanzania.

Patricia Velásquez Fired on "Celeb Apprentice"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 5" actress/model Patricia Velásquez became the seventh star fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create a launch party for a new flavor of Crystal Light MockTails. Clay Aiken was picked as project manager for the men, while Aubrey O'Day was chosen on the women's team. The men chose the Peach Bellini flavor and decided on a beach theme for their party with the slogan "Life's a Peach". The women picked the Pomtini flavor and came up with a Garden of Eden theme and the slogan "Stir Your Healthy Desires". On the men's team, everyone rallied behind project manager Clay, including Penn Jillette who had butted heads with Clay on the last task. Over on the women's team, Patricia messed up the branding by not putting Crystal Light on every poster they hung on the walls. After the Crystal Light execs checked out both parties, they met up with Donald to tell him who won. In the boardroom, Trump informed the teams that the executives liked both the parties, but preferred the men's a little bit more. Aubrey was crushed by the loss and became very emotional for the rest of the boardroom. Trump felt so sorry for her, he personally donated $10,000 to her charity. Aubrey picked Dayana and Patricia as the overall weakest members of her team and pushed hard for Dayana to go home. In the end, though, Donald felt that Patricia's gaff essentially lost the task for the women and had no choice but to fire her. Next week, there are two tasks in a special 3 hour episode, during which one star walks off the show. Tune in & see!

Colton Cumbie Eliminated Due to Illness and the Tribes Merge on "Survivor 24: One World"

On tonight's "Survivor 24: One World" 21 year old college student Colton Cumbie was forced to leave the show due to medical reasons. The episode began with Alicia and Colton taunting Christina and telling her she may as well leave, since she's going to be voted out next anyway. Later, the tribes met up for the Reward challenge, which consisted of bouncing coconuts off of trampolines in order to hit five targets. Unsurprisingly, Salani won the challenge and were awarded ice cream sundaes. While the Salani tribe was enjoying their reward, Colton was starting to not feel well over on Manono. His stomach issues got worse and worse, until a medic had to be brought in to take a look at him. After some quick tests, the medic thought he might have appendicitis and decided to pull him from the game. The other Manono members said emotional goodbyes to Colton, but Alicia was upset that he didn't give her his hidden immunity idol before he left. The next day, the tribes were told there would be no Immunity challenge, but they would still go to tribal council. When the two tribes met up later that evening, Jeff informed them that no one else was going home. He also told them to drop their buffs, as the two tribes were now one. The game is now even again with six guys and six girls competing as individuals. Which alliances will survive and which ones will crumble. Tune in and see!

"Cousins" Kerri Paul and Stacy Bowers Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 20"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" cousins Kerri Paul and Stacy Bowers became the fourth team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the eight remaining teams taking a train from Turin, Italy to Bavaria, Germany. When the teams arrived in Germany, they were instructed to drive to a local restaurant where a Travelocity gnome held their next clue. That clue was a Detour, where the choice of tasks was between styling a German man's beard to correctly match a provided picture or collecting pieces of gingerbread on a trail and then using those pieces to correctly assemble a gingerbread house. When Bopper and Mark got to the restaurant, they were first faced with a Speed Bump, a task only they had to complete since they came in last on the prior leg. They had to learn how to yodel a specific tune before they could attempt the Detour. When one of the Detour tasks was completed, teams were instructed to find the castle that was the inspiration for the castle in Sleeping Beauty. Many teams made the mistake of going to a different, nearby castle and had to backtrack to the correct one. When the teams reached the castle, they had to search for Ludwig the Second's bedroom to find their next clue. That clue was the Roadblock, where one team member had to use their Travelocity gnome in a game of curling. When their gnome landed on the center ring they would be given their next clue. Art and J.J. were once again the first team to reach the Pit Stop & were awarded a trip for two to Thailand. Kerri & Stacy and Jamie & Nary got stuck at the curling and ended up battling it out for last place. In the end, even though they finished the task first, Kerri & Stacy arrived at the Pit Stop last and were eliminated from the race.

Tia Carrere Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice 5"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 5" actress Tia Carrere became the sixth star fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create a viral video promoting O-Cedar's new Pro-Mist mop. Lou Ferrigno stepped up as project manager for the men, while Tia Carrere was chosen on the women's team. The men came up with the catchphrase "I'm going to mop the floor with you" and filmed a video featuring Lou dancing with the mop. The women decided on the risque catchphrase "What's your number?" which was a double entendre meaning both the number of people you've slept with and the number of mops you've owned in your lifetime. On the men's team, Clay got fed up with Penn's condescending attitude and gave him a piece of his mind. On the women's team, the trio of Debbie, Lisa and Aubrey felt they were the only ones coming up with creative ideas and that Tia, Dayana and the others were far weaker contestants. After the O-Cedar execs watched both videos, the teams met up in the boardroom to see who had won. Trump revealed that there were pros and cons about both videos, but in the end the execs preferred the men's team more. On the women's team, Aubrey attacked PM Tia calling her weak, jealous of her and even old. In the end, Tia took sole responsibility for her team's loss and essentially asked Trump to fire her. Trump obliged and now the teams are even again, six guys versus six girls. Who will be the next to go?

Monica Culpepper Voted Off "Survivor 24"

On tonight's "Survivor 24: One World" 41 year old NFL player's wife Monica Culpepper became the fifth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with Jeff announcing to the castaways that it was time for a tribe swap. All the castaways randomly chose an egg from a bowl that was filled with either blue or orange paint. The new tribes ended up being Mike, Jay, Troyzan, Sabrina, Kat, Chelsea, and Kim on the new Salani, while Tarzan, Jonas, Colton, Leif, Alicia, Christina, and Monica made up the new Manono. The new tribes then took part in the Reward challenge, which consisted of filling a bucket that had lots of holes in it with water and transporting it to a container to raise a flag. It was a close game, but in the end Salani beat Manono and they were awarded peanut butter sandwiches, coffee and the right to stay at the old camp.The new Manono tribe had to start from scratch on a brand new beach. Over on Salani, Kim went searching from the hidden immunity idol and sure enough she found it in a tree. She decided to share the news with her closest ally, Chelsea. Over on Manono, Colton told the girls he would flip to their side and vote off the guys, even though he had no real intention of doing that. The next day, the tribes competed in the Immunity challenge, which was basically full contact basketball in the water. Salani once again defeated Manono 3-1. Back at camp, Colton convinced the guys and Alicia to vote out Monica, viewing her as the biggest threat. At tribal council, that's exactly what happened, as only Christina voted to keep Monica. Will the new Salani keep dominating the challenges? Tune in and see!

"Best Friends" Bopper and Mark Avoid Elimination on "The Amazing Race 20"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" best friends William "Bopper" Minton and Mark Jackson avoided elimination despite arriving last on this leg's Pit Stop. The episode began with the eight remaining teams flying from Asunción, Paraguay to Turin, Italy. Mark and Bopper made the mistake of going straight to the airport to get tickets instead of stopping at a travel agent first. That forced the guys to book a flight that arrived an hour and fifteen minutes later than the other seven teams. They tried to get onto the first flight when they arrived back at the airport, but the plane was full. When the teams landed, they drove to the Lingotto Fiere where a Roadblock and a Fast Forward awaited them. Art and J.J. were the first team to arrive and decided to attempt the Fast Forward, which required one of them to land a remote controlled helicopter onto a helipad on their teammate's head. The other teams faced the Roadblock, which forced one team member to rappel down the ramps of the Lingotto building and grab a clue in under two minutes. If they ran out of time, they would have to start all over. When the task was completed, teams were instructed to drive to the Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile and search for the Tin Lizzie. Once they found the car, they were given a 2 cent Euro coin and had to figure out their next destination was the building depicted on the coin: the Mole Antonelliana. Rachel and Brendan couldn't figure out what the coin meant, resulting in one of Rachel's infamous meltdowns. Since Art and J.J. successfully completed the Fast Forward, they were able to go straight to the Pit Stop. Unsurprisingly, they checked in first and were awarded $5,000 each. When the teams reached the Mole Antonelliana, they were faced with their final challenge: the Detour. The choice of tasks was between properly cleaning a marble statue or tasting 14 different kinds of salami, traveling to a nearby piazza and then identifying all 14 kinds. Most of the teams chose the statue task, which proved to be much easier than the salami. Bopper and Mark could never overcome their one hour deficit and arrived at the Pit Stop last. To brighten their spirits, Art and J.J gave them the money they had won from coming in first. Phil then gave them even more good news by telling them that it was a non elimination leg and they were still in the race. Can the Kentucky boys make a comeback? Tune in next week to find out!

Michael Andretti and Adam Carolla Both Fired on Tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 5"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 5" comedian Adam Carolla and IndyCar driver Michael Andretti were both fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to produce a 10-minute presentation and 10-minute Q&A session promoting the Buick Verano. Debbie Gibson was picked as project manager for the women, while the men surprisingly chose Adam Carolla as PM over racing legend Michael Andretti. The women listened to what the Buick executives said and created a presentation that was heartfelt and family friendly. The men, on the other hand, went with a more humorous presentation that featured members of the team pretending to heckle Adam. They also made sure to incorporate Michael in the presentation, even though he didn't have much stage presence. On the women's side, Aubrey screwed up the name of the car when it was her time to speak, calling it the Buick Verono. After both team's presentations, the celebs made their way to the boardroom to find out who had won. Trump revealed that the execs liked both presentations but preferred the women's more, giving them their second straight win. On the men's team, Adam refused to bring anyone back to the boardroom, which didn't sit well with Trump. He decided that everyone was up for elimination and that two people would be fired. First up, Donald fired project manager Adam for taking most of the blame for his team's loss. Next up, Trump said goodbye to Michael for not stepping up as project manager on a task that he felt was tailor-made for him. Next week, team outcasts Lou Ferrigno and Tia Carrere take the reins as project managers. Which team will emerge triumphant? Tune in & see!

Bill Posley Voted Off "Survivor 24: One World"

On tonight's "Survivor 24: One World" 28 year old stand-up comedian Bill Posley became the fourth castaway voted off the show. The episode began with the men asking to borrow the women's fishing net and in return they would give them half of everything they caught. The women decided not to take the men up on their offer, thinking they had enough food as it is. Later, the castaways competed in the Reward challenge, which consisted of knocking out five tiles in a row on a large board using a slingshot and coconuts. The women won the challenge and chose a tarp as their reward. Back at camp, Leif mistakenly told Bill that he was on the chopping block last week and when word got back to Colton about what Leif did, he wasn't happy. Colton confronted Leif about his actions and Leif admitted he made a mistake. The rest of the misfit alliance also viewed Leif's blunder as a betrayal and outright told him he would be the next to go. The next day, the tribes competed in the Immunity challenge, which was three different puzzles that had to be solved by three different pairs of castaways tied together. The men crushed the women, thanks in part to Alicia to Chelsea taking forever to get past the first puzzle. Back at camp, Bill tried to make amends with Colton, but Colton was having none of it. He was so upset with Bill that he even brought up the idea of giving the women their immunity and going to tribal council that night just to get rid of Bill. At first, the other guys dismissed the idea, but Colton kept pushing for it and eventually they all agreed. Tarzan, however, wanted to vote out Leif instead of Bill because he felt they could no longer trust him. At tribal council, a shocked Jeff couldn't believe that the men had given up their immunity and said this could end up being the stupidest move in Survivor history. In the end, Colton got his way and Bill was unanimously voted out. Next week, a tribal shake-up could alter the game yet again.

"Twin Brothers" Elliot and Andrew Weber Eliminated from "The Amazing Race 20"

On tonight's "Amazing Race 20" twin brothers Elliot and Andrew Weber became the third team eliminated from the race. The episode began with the nine remaining teams flying from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Asunción, Paraguay. The first four teams booked a flight that departed at 8:45am, while the other five teams had to take a later flight that left at 10:40am. When the teams landed, they made their way to the Metalúrgica Punta de Rieles, where they had to search amongst the metal equipment for a clue. Once they found one, they were faced with a Detour. The choice of tasks was between traveling to a nearby fruit market and building a 10 by 10 pyramid of watermelons or going to a local university and correctly stringing a harp. Many of the teams had trouble with the watermelon task and switched to the harp one. Rachel and Dave got nervous that the teams from the second flight were catching up, so they used their Express Pass. That allowed them to skip the Detour and move on to the next task. That task was the Roadblock, where one team member had to perform a choreographed routine while balancing an empty bottle on their heads. If they broke all of their provided bottles they would be given a 2-hour penalty. Art and J.J. smoked all the other teams and arrived at the Pit Stop first, earning them a trip for two to the Bahamas. On the other hand, Dave dropped all his bottles during the Roadblock and he and Rachel incurred the 2 hour penalty. In the end, that dropped them from second to sixth place. Vanessa and Ralph struggled with the watermelon task, while Elliot and Andrew had trouble with the harp task. The two teams happened to meet up at the Roadblock, where Ralph edged past Andrew, giving him and Vanessa a glimmer of hope. The brothers ended up arriving at the Pit Stop last and were eliminated from the race. Now only eight teams remain!

George Takei Fired on "Celebrity Apprentice 5"

On tonight's "Celebrity Apprentice 5" actor George Takei became the third star fired by Donald Trump. The episode began with the teams learning that their new task was to create two themed living window displays for Ivanka Trump's clothing collection. George Takei was picked as project manager for the men, while the women chose Dayana Mendoza. The men decided to hire three sets of twin models who would showcase Ivanka's clothes in two ways: at the office during the day and at a red carpet event at night. The women came up with a convoluted idea about "timeless" fashion that featured a clock and sketches & photos of Ivanka's clothes. Right away, Dee Snider had to leave his team and see a doctor about his broken finger. He ended up needing immediate surgery, which prevented him from participating in the task. When it came time to build the set for their displays, Adam Carolla took the reins on the men's team since he had a carpentry background. Although the men worked well together, they weren't sure George was up to par when it came to making decisions. On the women's team, a curveball was thrown when the photos they had ordered for their display didn't arrive. Thinking on the spot, Aubrey came up with a new theme for the windows: a fashion designer's clothes going from sketches to the runway. After the teams presented their windows to Ivanka and the CEO of Lord & Taylor, they traveled to the boardroom to find out who had won. Trump revealed that Ivanka much preferred the women's display to the men's, giving the women their very first win. On the men's team, project manager George decided to bring Arsenio & Lou with him to the final boardroom. In the end, Trump fired George because he took most of the blame for their loss. Next week, two stars are sent packing!
