Reality TV Show Update News - November 2004
Overconfidence and arrogance have led to the downfall of many a Survivor contestant during the program's nine seasons, and Thursday's Thanksgiving evening Survivor: Vanuatu broadcast was no different. With smug would-be queen Ami Cusack safe from elimination, Survivor's oppressed and persecuted commoners rose up and instead voted out Leann Slaby, Ami's right-hand henchwoman, seemingly destroying Ami's power base and throwing the competition wide open.
'Bachelor' fisherman Byron Velvick reels in Mary Delgado, throws back Tanya Michel in sixth edition finaleNovember 25, 2004
It looks like The National Enquirer's spoiler was right after all. As first reported by the tabloid several weeks ago, The Bachelor's Byron Velvick selected Mary Delgado over Tanya Michel during last evening's finale of the sixth installment of the ABC reality dating show.
The pagonging continues. Sticking together for another week despite Scout Lee Cloud's attempt at some endgame planning, the six women of Survivor: Vanuatu's Alinta tribe continued the systematic ousting of their male colleagues, booting Chad Crittenden, the 35-year-old teacher from Oakland, California, during last evening's Survivor broadcast.
The pagonging is on. Despite increasing signs of cracks in their alliance, Survivor: Vanuatu's six women alliance held strong for another week. As a result, Lea "Sarge" Masters, the 40-year-old drill sergeant from Columbia, South Carolina that the women perceived to be their biggest remaining threat was voted out of the competition during last evening's Survivor broadcast.
Showing that despite appearances, old alliances die hard, the former women of Survivor: Vanuatu's Yasur tribe realigned immediately upon the competition's tribal merger, and as a result Rory Freeman, the 35-year-old housing case manager from Des Moines, IA, was voted out of the game during last evening's Survivor broadcast.
