Dale from 'Survivor' on the 'vultures' that ate all the rice and voted him out

It was bad enough that Missy, John, and Keith ate all the rice at their previous tribe. But then they came over to Coyopa and started also helping themselves to that supply, well, Dale Wentworth was none too happy about that, so what did they do? They voted both him and his daughter out of the game!

Dale called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss where it all went wrong, whether he thought his fake idol play would work, and how he feels about daughter Kelley last week saying she wishes she hadn’t played alongside him. Not only that, but Dale has some strong feelings about Jeff Probst bailing out Hunahpu last night with a trade for more rice. Find out why he thinks even his former Coyopa tribemates should have had to deal with the consequences of the over-consumption.

Don't show this 'Party Down South 2' trailer to your parents

Last week, EW told you that Party Down South was about to go through a form of reality show mitosis, in that the CMT series that chronicles the exploits of a bunch of loud-n-proud-n-drunk twentysomething Southerners would launch a second edition next month. (The original cast, by the way, resurfaces for a third season of Party Down South in February.) READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries' star Chris Wood: Kai is the show's Ted Bundy

When season six of The Vampire Diaries began, it seemed bad enough for Bonnie and Damon to be stuck in some sort of alternate world far away from those they love. But as they soon discovered, things could get worse: They could be stuck in an alternate world far away from those they love, with a murderous psychopath.

By now, fans know that Bonnie and Damon are trapped with Kai, a former member of the Gemini coven who specializes in stealing magic from others and more generally, killing his siblings. But considering he’s the only one with any idea of how to escape their Groundhog Day-type situation, ditching him isn’t really an option.

We caught up with Chris Wood, who plays Kai, to talk about what comes next and why Kai is the most unpredictable character the show’s ever seen:

'Game of Thrones' cast signs on for 7th season, for a reportedly 'huge' raise

HBO’s Game of Thrones cast is sticking around for awhile. The network has signed the bulk of the current main cast through a presumed seventh season.

The premium network has locked down the acclaimed fantasy hit’s cast for another two years, sources say. But according to THR, which first broke the story, the seventh (and presumed final) season came at a high cost. In exchange for agreeing to a seventh season option, the cast received “huge raises” for the currently shooting fifth season, along with the sixth and seventh. The raises “will make the cast members among the highest paid on cable TV.” HBO had no comment on the report. READ FULL STORY

Here, Milano tells EW what it was like to tape the series (in heels no less), who her favorite guest judge was, and what to expect from this season… the best to date, according to Milano.

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst on that controversial rice trade

Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This is kind of a new one for you guys in terms of a tribe recklessly devouring all of their food supply. Tell us about how you came up with the decision to take all the comfort items back from Hunahpu for more rice. Are there any other options you and the producers discussed before settling on that?
JEFF PROBST: Having a tribe eat through or lose their entire staple of rice is one of the greatest gifts the reality gods can bestow upon a show like Survivor because it creates story. Big story. Once I heard they were low on rice and we were still very early in the game there really wasn’t any other consideration than to take every single thing at camp — other than the most bare essentials. In this case, it was easily justified because there were no mitigating circumstances — they simply ate it all. There has to be a big check for that kind of indulgence. But the big idea I am still circling is this: If you make the assumption that you can always trade for more rice (even if it’s your entire shelter) is eating all your rice so you can stay strong for challenges actually a decent strategy? I would not be surprised to see another tribe take the risk and employ this strategy in future seasons. So in my subconscious I am already thinking of how we might handle this same situation if a tribe didn’t have enough supplies to make a fair trade. Say for instance a tribe that had won no rewards, had only the barest of shelter, but like Hunahpu, also ate all their rice. What is the appropriate invoice at that point?  READ FULL STORY

The American Horror Story installments of Asylum and Freak Show just became even more connected: EW has exclusively learned that Lily Rabe will be appearing on Freak Show and reprising her Asylum role as nun Sister Mary Eunice.
