  1. The 'Survivor: Cagayan' Finale: It's Not How You P...

    Tess Lynch

    Survivor: Cagayan - Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty was like a morality play that taught you all of the wrong lessons. When Jeff Probst, live in the studio, gathered a group of Survivor-fan children around him to encourage them to compete as so...

    Tess Lynch

    On the topic of this season of Survivor, subtitled Blood vs. Water, I have a two-point prologue after watching last night's premiere. The first point is that Greg Buis, whom you may remember from Season 1 as the charming gentleman who was later robbe...

    Tess Lynch

    Now that Elisabeth Hasselbeck, very good Survivor player and gluten-free conservative, has vacated her seat at The View, Jenny McCarthy is moving in. Despite the rumors that Hasselbeck was ousted because her right-wing coffee talk alienated viewers, ...

  5. Siberia and the Evolution of Unreality TV

    Tess Lynch

    Siberia has a great pitch: Survivor meets Lost, a scripted reality show in which contestants willingly strand themselves in the wilderness for a chance at $500,000, battling supernatural forces and each other. It's an exciting idea for many reasons. ...

  6. Survivor: Caramoan Finale: Toothless Justice

    Tess Lynch

    I will try not to be smug in this recap, but I have the feeling I won't be able to help it. I've been pulling for my man John Cochran for quite some time. To some degree, all of Caramoan's favorites had scores to settle or reputations to redeem from ...

  7. Survivor: Caramoan, Episode 13: Killed by Kindness

    Tess Lynch

    If you watch Survivor, and I'm assuming you do, you undoubtedly find yourself discussing it with other fans over the course of the season. Survivor people have little homing devices; we find one another, and then we stand around in offices or on tele...

  8. Survivor: Caramoan, Episode 11: Of Men and Mustaches

    Tess Lynch

    One of the many benefits to the structure of Survivor is that as soon as things start to look predictable — when one alliance outnumbers the other, when someone loafs around excessively or goes out of his way to act obnoxiously — the whol...

  9. Survivor: Caramoan, Episode 11: Bow Down Before Lord Cochran!

    Tess Lynch

    After last week's crazy tribal council, there was a Grantland e-mail chain during which all of the office Survivor fans discussed Malcolm's strategy of letting Stealth know that the Three Amigos (if I'm embarrassed to type that, why are they not emba...

  10. Survivor: Caramoan, Episode 10: 'Wow'

    Tess Lynch

    Yesterday afternoon, John Cochran tweeted that "as a Survivor expert, I feel comfortable saying that tonight's episode is going to be one of the most insane in the history of the show." Cochran won the Harvard Dean's Scholar prize for comparing the j...

  11. Survivor: Caramoan, Episode 9: Malcolm As You Are

    Tess Lynch

    Hey, guys. Nice tribal last night. We really saw some great text (use of the word "operatives" more than once, a "payback's a bitch" bomb,) subtext (ominous warnings to play any idols floating around,) and a lightning-fast yoink right before the buzz...

  12. Survivor: Caramoan, Episode 7: Blindside Time!

    Tess Lynch

    After writing about the Koh-Lanta deaths and then talking about the assorted perils of reality shows on the Girls in Hoodies podcast, I was feeling kind of mixed on the whole Survivor thing this week. It isn't that I don't still love Survivor, but I ...

  13. Survivor Guilt: Processing the Koh-Lanta Suicide

    Tess Lynch

    Koh-Lanta, the French version of Survivor, looks almost identical to our own, right down to the Geoffroy Preauxbt, but I'd never paid much attention to it (or Denmark's Robinson Ekspeditionen, or Brazil's No Limite, or even the show that started the ...

    Tess Lynch

    My dad was dying to spoil this episode of Survivor for me from his sofa in Eastern Daylight Time, but I wouldn't let him. Though I could intuit this was not going to be a curveball episode, I was still worried about my strange buddy Phillip Sheppard,...

  15. Survivor: Caramoan  Fans vs. Favorites, 'Operation Thunder Dome'...

    Tess Lynch

    Last week's Survivor was a little bit too crazy, so this week's episode was all about getting everyone's minds back in the game and off the Loco Hantz meltdown and sand-sullied rice. Life with Brandon was so hard that the favorites didn't have time t...

    Tess Lynch

    Survivor has always been fascinating for its character studies: The social nature of the game, which doesn't necessarily encourage but definitely allows for lying and manipulation, is one of the most gripping parts of the show. There are always two s...
