Reality TV Features & Interviews - January 2008
Survivor: Micronesia's creative hook was supposed to be its Fans vs. Favorites format -- but with two love affairs, a record number of blind-side vote-offs, multiple hidden Immunity Idols, conned returning castaways, a new biggest all-time Survivor blunder, and some of the most brutal weather ever, the Fans vs. Favorites angle may have to take a backseat to all the other action.
Ada Maynor and her daughter Christan Henderson knew the speech portions of the competition was a "problem area" right from the start.

Donald Jerousek and Nicolas Fulks were unable to take home the $1 million prize, but they sure do have some good stories to tell from their The Amazing Race journey.
Although viewers saw it play out in only eleven weeks, Ronald and Christina Hsu's The Amazing Race journey was four years in the making.
Rachel Rosales and TK Erwin remained cool and calm when presented with a challenge, a strategy that paid-off to the tune of $1 million as the dating couple from Huntington Beach, CA was revealed to be The Amazing Race's twelfth-season winners during last night's finale broadcast of the CBS reality series.
Jennifer Parker and Nathan Hagstrom are the first to admit they argued a lot throughout The Amazing Race, but credit the competition for keeping them together as a couple.
Brenda and Heather Bailey made sure their comedic, fun personalities were on display -- maybe a little bit too much, as the Parkersburg, WV mother/daughter duo was revealed to be the fifth team eliminated from Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants during Wednesday night's broadcast of The CW reality series.
Simon Cowell thinks American Idol's seventh-season is up for grabs.
Except for the winners, every team who competes on The Amazing Race has a moment that in some way leads to their downfall.
