Survivor: Fiji – Why Dreamz Lost, by David Bloomberg: Many people are saying Dreamz blew any chance he had of winning the moment he broke the deal with Yau-Man.

Survivor: Fiji – Why Boo Lost , by David Bloomberg: Boo stuck it out on Survivor: Fiji longer than most people expected. He played through pain and made it to fifth place.

“I Have Gotten Over It” – An Interview with Survivor: Fiji’s Yau-Man, by David Bloomberg: It’s a wonder to me that Yau-Man didn’t strangle Dreamz on the spot during the reunion, especially when we found out the majority of jurors would have given him the win.

How does she see her performance on the show. Also, as probably the person who knew Dreamz best, what does she think of his story that he planned to double-cross Yau-Man all along? And what does she have to say about the way she was treated by the jury, especially Alex and Lisi? Cassandra answers these questions and more in this RealityNewsOnline interview.
Surviving the Fiji Reunion: It All Comes Back to Dreamz, by David Bloomberg: The finale is over, the winner has been chosen. Now it’s time to answer some questions.

And what about Yau-Man, Earl, and everybody else?
Surviving Fiji, the Finale: Deal or No Deal?, by David Bloomberg: It all comes down to this! Survivor: Fiji has been getting more interesting, the close we get to the end.

Click inside for the answers!
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 13 MVP – Yau-Mania, by Betsy Wasser: Is there really any doubt in anyone’s mind about who deserves this week’s Most Valuable Player award? From start to finish, Yau-Man played a fantastic game. Read on to find out what makes him so deserving.
Surviving the Early Show: Stacy’s Interview, by David Bloomberg: There is a reason this column is called, “Surviving the Early Show.” Contestants don’t just get interviewed – they have to survive a discussion with somebody who hasn’t even bothered to watch the show and is just bluffing their way through it. This becomes even more obvious than usual when Harry Smith interviews Stacy and is completely clueless and just plain wrong along the way.
“I Always Try to Better Myself” – An Interview with Survivor: Fiji’s Stacy, by David Bloomberg: Stacy didn’t get as much air time as some of the remaining contestants, but when she was on our TV screens, she was often controversial. Why didn’t she get along early with Cassandra and Dreamz? In particular, what surprising statement did Dreamz make to her? What happened with the whole coffee press situation?

Survivor: Fiji – Why Stacy Lost, by David Bloomberg: It would be all too easy to say that Stacy was voted out simply because Yau-Man used his hidden immunity idol. It would also be wrong. There were many factors that led to the voting results ending up the way they were. So why did Stacy lose?
Survivor: Fiji – Down to the Fiji Final Five’s Flakiness, Foolishness, and Friggin’ Brilliance, by Ken Kellam III: Now that the game is down to five, it’s time to ask a few questions about what we might see on Sunday, and the myriad of events that transpired on the last Thursday episode of the season. Join along as Ken sorts it all out.
Strategic Overview of Survivor, Episode 13: Driving a Hard Bargain, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: SOS! Yau-Man demonstrated that he had great instincts in tonight’s installment of Survivor.

Surviving Fiji, Episode 13: It’s Better to Give than Receive, by David Bloomberg: There are many cases on Survivor when it’s better to give than receive. For example, it’s better to give somebody a vote than to receive one. It’s better to give somebody a trip to Exile Island than to receive one. It’s better to give somebody a knife in the back than to receive one. How does Dreamz feel about giving and receiving? More specifically, when we finally get to what Jeff Probst told us last season would be “one of the most controversial decisions ever made by a Survivor,” and it involves both giving and receiving, how does everybody react?
Survivor: Fiji – Advice for the Remaining Six, by Jeffrey Clinard: The Syndicate is out of Horsemen to send home, so it’s time for the alliance to turn on itself. It is imperative for players to consider who they’d like to sit next to in front of a jury. What’s a smart player to do? Jeffrey Clinard has advice for all of them.
Survivor: Fiji – Why Alex Lost, by David Bloomberg: Alex seemed to know what he had to do, but he just couldn’t pull it all together. Why did he find himself on the losing end of the alliance battle? And then why couldn’t he get people to go along with his last-ditch plan? Why did Alex lose?
Survivor: Fiji – Who Will Go in Episode 13?, by Kari Kennedy: With the last of the loyal Horsemen gone, now the Syndicate of six will have to start turning on each other. Will the bottom three find a way to get rid of one of the heads, or will one of them take the fall? This article contains no spoilers.
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 12 MVP – Who Dat Ninja?, by Betsy Wasser: Alex tried to go into “ninja mode” in his final days on Survivor. Judging by the results, he must have been a ninja in a neon colored outfit with squeaky shoes, since he got voted out. Who played better than he did this week?
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 12 Missing Intelligence Award - Apocalypse Averted, by Heathyr Fields Ford: Three of the Four Horsemen have been voted out, thanks to the Earlliance. But even though the Earlliance has been playing smart, that doesn’t mean one of them doesn’t deserve this week’s MIA. Will it be silent threat/annoying gnat Stacy?
Survivor: Fiji – Survivor Live, Episode 12, by Brian Towers: Alex played a good game on the island, fighting to stick around until it was just too much for him to handle on his own. Here he talks to Dalton and Jenna about Yau-Man’s popularity, playing the hidden immunity idol, and which Survivor is a “chaos blender.”
Survivior: Fiji – Is This Getting Good or What?, by Ken Kellam III: As the countdown to the end of the game nears, things are about to get awfully interesting now that the last of the amigos is officially in the jury. Join Ken as he asks a few things about what we just saw.
An “Insider” Look at Survivor: Fiji Episode 12 – “People's Paranoia and Emotions Got the Better of Them”, by Teeuwynn Woodruff: This past week, attorney Alex was finally sent home, despite his valiant efforts to turn the vote against Yau-Man. What is it about Boo besides his chatter that makes his fellow tribemates get so irritated with him? And why does Alex say that he went into this experience thinking it was like a big poker game, but came out with an entirely different opinion of the game of Survivor?
Surviving the Early Show: Alex’s Interview, by David Bloomberg: Alex never had trouble getting his thoughts put on the table at Tribal Council, which makes him a good candidate to do likewise on The Early Show. Can he get around Hannah Storm’s questions and say what he wants to say? What new information is revealed, and is it perhaps a bit much for people eating breakfast? Read on!
“Their Best Chance Was to Stay With Me” – An Interview with Survivor: Fiji’s Alex, by David Bloomberg: David picked Alex to win – why does Alex think it didn’t happen? What did he think about his own game play? Who should have stayed with him for their own benefit? More importantly, how did Survivor change Alex, and what are his plans for the future? Read on to find out all this and more!
Strategic Overview of Survivor, Episode 12: Spreading Disinformation, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: SOS!

Where did he go wrong, and what consequences will his actions have? Professor Sadow has all the details!
Surviving Fiji, Episode 12: “Ninja Mode”, by David Bloomberg: Alex knows he’s in danger, and it’s time to go into “ninja mode.” What does that mean, exactly? Is he going to hide and then jump out at people swinging a sword? Well, that’s not too far from the plan, actually. Will anybody be cut down by him, or is he doomed to follow his previous allies? Read on to find out!
Survivor: Fiji – Why Mookie Lost, by David Bloomberg: Mookie did a lot of things right – such as recognizing when it was time to drop his ally, Rocky, and move on. But he also did some things wrong, like trusting Dreamz. Which wrong moves ended up overpowering the right ones? Why did Mookie lose?
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 11 MVP – I’m Rubber, You’re Glue, by Betsy Wasser: Alex and Mookie tried to take control of the game, or to at least go out swinging. Everything they did backfired on them… and worked to the benefit of this week’s MVP.
Survivor: Fiji - Who Will Go in Episode 12?, by Kari Kennedy: This week Alex will either be the swing vote or dead duck, depending on how well he plays. Can he manage to infiltrate the group to pull back three of his original tribe mates? Or will the remaining six see through his wily ways and vote him out? What will this "cornered lion" do? And who is thinking ahead with the end so near?
Survivor: Fiji – Advice for the Remaining Seven, by Jeffrey Clinard: At the end of tribal council, Jeff Probst pointed out that Alex could become a dangerous player. The Syndicate can’t stick together forever, after all. Will other Survivors decide that now is the time to play dirty?
Survivor: Fiji - Survivor Live, Episode 11, by Brian Towers: After attending Tribal Councils in 10 out of 11 episodes, it was only a matter of time before Mookie was due to show up on Survivor: Live. Read on for memories of his sad and woeful tale. Kiddies, this could happen to you!

An "Insider" Look at Survivor: Fiji, Episode 11 - “If I Was [in] the Last Two, I'm Sure Everyone Would Vote for Me”, by Teeuwynn Woodruff: This week another Horseman goes down to his own stupidity. Mookie finally reaps the reward for blabbing to Dreamz about his team's immunity idol. What does Alex say about his strategy now that the Horsemen are on the run? And does Mookie realize the errors in his own game? Or does he show off an ego larger than a mastodon?
“We May Have Gotten Outwitted, But We’re Not Stupid” – An Interview with Survivor: Fiji’s Mookie, by David Bloomberg: Mookie’s time on Survivor brought up a number of questions. Why did he tell Dreamz about the hidden immunity idol? Did he believe Dreamz at all when he said he’d been backstabbed too? (Hint, look at the title of this interview.) Can he justify going through Yau-Man’s bag? Mookie answers all of this and more, including pointing out that Yau-Man himself had done earlier that made his complaints of bag-searching sound a bit hollow. Read on to find out!
Strategic Overview of Survivor, Episode 11: Strategic Ciphers, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: SOS! Alex and Mookie had the right idea to take control of the game, but it didn't work out quite as well as they'd hoped. But there is still a chance for Alex to benefit from his buddy's unfortunate ouster. But why won't it work? Professor Sadow has the answers!
Surviving Fiji, Episode 11: “As Snaky-Ratty As It Gets”, by David Bloomberg: Alex and Mookie are on Survivor life support. Can they save themselves? What are they willing to do to continue in the game? How low can they go? And even if they go that low, will it help or hurt them in the end?
Survivor: Fiji – Advice for the Remaining 8, by Jeffrey Clinard: The Syndicate made a power move, forcing the Four Horsemen to squander the immunity idol – and to go down to Three Horsemen. Who is on the right track, and who needs to make changes? And who is the most dangerous player out there?
Survivor: Fiji – Why Edgardo Lost, by David Bloomberg: Edgardo used to be one of the controllers of his tribe. Just a few minutes before Tribal Council, it seemed that he was safe, at least for now. So what went wrong? How did he end up having his torch snuffed? Why did Edgardo lose?
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 10 Missing Intelligence Award - To Betray, Perchance to Dreamz, by Heathyr Fields Ford: This week’s episode of Survivor had Heathyr almost speechless. But now her speech is back, and it’s time to let some Survivors know that they’ve misplaced their intelligence. Is one of the lucky winners Dreamz?
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 10 MVPs – Beating a Dead Horse(Men), by Betsy Wasser: There was a lot of smart strategy going on in the most recent episode of Survivor. The “four horsemen” thought they had the upper hand after they voted out Michelle, but they not only lost their power, but squandered their immunity idol. Who did the best job of playing them? Read on.

An "Insider" Look at Survivor: Fiji, Episode 10 - “If You Don't Feel Paranoid Playing Survivor, You're Not Sane”, by Teeuwynn Woodruff: This week the tribemates scrambled to deal with both immunity idols and shifting alliances. Dreamz spilled the beans on the Horsemen's idol and committed – at least for now – to the other side. And Edgardo was sideswiped right out of the game. How does Edgardo feel about his sudden ouster? Who tells Cassandra he's a “hell of a lot of fun” when he's drunk to get her to take him on the yacht? And just how much weight did Edgardo lose in his 27 days on the island? Find out inside!
“Dreamz Has a Big Mouth” – An Interview with Survivor: Fiji’s Edgardo, by David Bloomberg: Edgardo and Alex seemed to be controlling the game for quite some time. What happened to cause them to lose control? What was Edgardo’s strategy? Did he know all of what was going on that final chaotic day?

Survivor: Fiji – Why Michelle Lost, by David Bloomberg: Michelle was screwed by the twist. So that’s why she lost, right? No, it’s not that simple. The host on The Early Show said she lost because Alex didn’t really know her. Certainly he got it correct, right? No, it’s not that simple. And he’s just plain wrong. So we have two non-answers, but what is the correct answer to the question of why Michelle lost?
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 9 MVP – Do Not Pass Go, by Betsy Wasser: Ravu and Moto are now one tribe, living a luxury free existence as Bula Bula. The tribes faced an unexpected twist when half of them had to go to tribal council without strategizing first. The player who handled it best is this week’s Most Valuable Player.
Survivor: Fiji – Why Dreamz Might Have Voted for Michelle, by Belle Book: Belle was surprised to see that Dreamz was the deciding factor in getting rid of Michelle.

Survivor: Fiji, Episode 9 Missing Intelligence Award – Close Your Eyes and Point, by Heathyr Fields Ford: So much was going on in last week’s Survivor, with several possibilities coming out of the results of the vote, that it might be difficult for Heathyr to pick the winner of the MIA. At least we can be pretty sure it’s not Yau-Man, right?
Survivor: Fiji – Survivor Live, Episode 9, by Brian Towers: Few thought Michelle was in a position of risk before special teams were formed to compete in the challenge. But this is Survivor! Can responding to an hour of largely supportive phone calls on Survivor: Live reveal any hidden facts?
Survivor: Fiji - Can You Emerge From the Merge Without Getting Purged?, by Ken Kellam III: Well, the remaining players have lasted long enough to make the merge, but one of them obviously wasn’t going to last much beyond that. Join along as Ken examines the merge, the latest Tribal Council twist, and the ever-changing tribal dynamics.

An "Insider" Look at Survivor: Fiji, Episode 9 - “I’d Say I Hit a Stroke of Bad Luck”, by Teeuwynn Woodruff: This week the tribe’s merged and an additional twist put Michelle in a suddenly bad position, thus setting up her ouster.

Surviving Fiji, Episode 9: A Tribe Within a Tribe, by David Bloomberg: We know something big is coming this week, but what is it? A merge? Another tribal switch-up? Something we’ve never seen before? What surprise does Jeff Probst have in store for the contestants? And how does it affect the game?
An "Insider" Look at Survivor: Fiji, Episode 8 - “I Just Got That Much More Special”, by Teeuwynn Woodruff: To no one’s surprise, including her own, Lisi was voted out of the ragged Ravu tribe.

Survivor: Fiji, Episode 8 MVPs – Waking Up Pretty Early, by Betsy Wasser: If you’ve been looking at the Survivor articles on RNO this week, you’ll see that the vast majority of them are accompanied by pictures of Lisi.

Survivor: Fiji – Survivor Live, Episode 6, by Brian Towers: So much about Lisi’s experiences on Survivor: Fiji made little sense to many viewers. Can an hour of grilling on Survivor: Live shed any light on matters?
Survivor: Fiji – “I Loathe Lisi” Finally Gets Cancelled, by Ken Kellam III: At times, Lisi’s behavior seemed as goofy as that of famed sitcom character Lucy Ricardo; the difference was, Lisi wasn’t fictional, and certainly not nearly as lovable. Join along as Ken examines her behavior in the game, subsequent interviews, and tells us why Lisi has still got some splainin’ to do.
Survivor: Fiji – Why Lisi Lost, by David Bloomberg: It might seem to be a waste of time to wonder why Lisi lost, given that she asked to be booted. But she did take it back, and we have seen occasions when allies refused such requests on Survivor before. So what did Lisi do to put herself in such a bad position? Why did Lisi lose?
Survivor: Fiji, Episode 8 Missing Intelligence Award – My World Turned Upside Down, by Heathyr Fields Ford: Is it obvious who will receive this week’s Survivor Missing Intelligence Award? Maybe you think so, but then what about the runners-up? And what does Heathyr have to say about Dreamz?

Surviving the Early Show: Lisi’s Interview, by David Bloomberg: After being booted from Survivor: Fiji Thursday night, Lisi visited The Early Show Friday morning. What did she have to say for herself? Did she want to go? Why did the secret scene involve clucking? Read on to find out!
Strategic Overview of Survivor, Episode 8: The Lisi Has Left the Building, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: SOS! In voting out Lisi, it seems as if the Two Amigos have inherited some of her "strategic prowess."

And do Rocky's tribemates have any words of wisdom for him as they vote his Boston butt out of their tribe?
Surviving the Early Show: Rocky’s Interview , by David Bloomberg: So far this season, none of the Survivor cast-offs have made it to The Early Show. But they begin again with Rocky.

Read on to find out!
“I Know I Came Across as Arrogant and Maybe a Little Hateable” – An Interview with Survivor: Fiji’s Rocky, by David Bloomberg: Rocky was certainly a stand-out personality in this season of Survivor.
