'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst weighs in on the latest blindside

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: One of the things that has amazed me most about this season is how some people seem to be playing with little to no regard for how their actions may hurt them later with a possible jury vote. Tony was so worried about LJ that he blew up his alliance to get rid of him, but when this went down — not knowing then how it would play out later — did you think at the time this was a bad move because he (like Kass before him) now may have a jury filled with people angry at his betrayal should he make it that far?
JEFF PROBST: I think Tony is similar to Russell in many ways, one of which is I don’t really think he thinks too long about any of his moves. Not taking away from his game play, so far it’s working very well. He appears to be going off gut instinct, probably the same thing that he follows as a cop. I also think he has a pretty good read of people. But if he took a bit more time to evaluate some of his moves he might not make them. Is that a good thing? Hard to know at this point. The other factor is you have to get to the end in order to have a shot at winning. So playing “polite” and worrying about the jury too much can be a real hazard to your game. Before you know it you are on the jury. The goal is to 1) Get to the end 2) Get to the end with people you believe you can beat. So offending the jury is only relevant in regards to where you stack alongside the other finalist/s. But I think we can all agree that several of these players are playing to win.

InsideTV Podcast: Morgan from 'Survivor' says 'I really am not that horrible a person'

Last night’s episode of Survivor was filled with some very candid comments from Morgan McLeod. Among the gems was this: “I am used to things being easier for me and not having to work that hard to get things.” And this: “She is a bitter, ugly, old lady. And I think she hates me because I’m cuter than her and have always been cuter than her.” And this: “If any person in the world can decide to be ugly or cute, most would pick cute.” And — after she was voted out — this: “They can say whatever they want at Tribal, that I was spiteful or that I was lazy, but I could care less what they said. I mean, Kass is a child and if she was upset with me — whatever. Grow up. You’re 40. Get over it.” READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst explains how they hide those immunity idol clues

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start off with this hidden immunity idol clue that caused all the ruckus. The clue was hidden in Spencer’s napkin at the reward feast. Do you guys just place it in a napkin and whoever happens to sit there gets it so it is just a random luck of the draw situation? And seeing as how Spencer almost did not even open and use the napkin, have you ever had an instance where you hid a clue and nobody ever found it?
JEFF PROBST: Yes and Yes. In this case, we set up the reward and then they walk in and sit where they want. In fact, I think the woman serving them says “sit wherever you want” or something similar. It’s completely random. And yes, there are times they don’t find the clue. It’s rare but it happens. We don’t worry too much about it because the idols almost always end up being found and even when they aren’t found, players are so good at pretending they have one or making a fake one that they are always an element in the game.

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst breaks down that 'exhilarating' Tribal Council

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, Jeff. I am not going to waste any time asking you about the merge. I am not going to ask you about the immunity challenge. I am not going to ask you about anything except for what went down at Tribal Council because that was INSANE! Let’s take this point-by-point and try to get your real time reaction to some of these crazy moves. Starting with CRAZY MOVE #1: Tony reveals he has a hidden immunity idol. So basically, instead of stealthily using his idol to block already cast votes against him, Tony reveals it early and allows the competition to come up with a plan B. Why do that? And are you sitting there at Tribal Council at this point thinking to yourself, wow, this guy just blew it?
JEFF PROBST: Hmmm did I think Tony was blowing it? It’s a good question but honestly it’s so hard to evaluate anything Tony does because you never know where it’s going to lead. My Monday morning quarterback assessment is that Tony sometimes reacts faster than he realizes and he gets himself into a situation that he might regret… And then he makes another decision to fix the one he just made. Yes, I was surprised that he would reveal an idol, but…Tony is clearly a guy who is playing to win this game. So he is going to make big moves. If Tony is going to go down he is going to go down in a giant ball of fire.  So I guess my answer is no, I don’t think he blew it. I think he had a strategy to try and scare people off of voting for him, never anticipating he’d then give his idol to someone else… L.J.  t’s a big time move and it worked. He read the situation correctly and you know how much I love that kind of game play.

'Survivor: Cagayan': Exclusive merge photos and Tony interview!

He has been the sneakiest sneak of the Survivor season so far. Some of his moves — like putting a target on Cliff with a phantom lie to Sarah and putting a target on Jeremiah with a phantom hidden immunity idol clue — have been ingenious. Others — like yelling out “Top five, baby!” at the top of his lungs after winning a challenge — maybe not so much. And now Jersey City cop Tony Vlachos will have to come face to face with those people not part of his top five when the Survivor: Cagayan tribes merge on Wednesday night’s episode. We have two exclusive merge images (one above and one below) of the big gathering as well as an exclusive midseason Q&A with the guy Survivor fans either love…or love to hate. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst breaks down what happened on the big quit

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Take us inside how the Lindsey quit went down. How soon after Tribal Council did you get the call? And what does your gut tell you in terms of what made her quit, because we have heard her from time to time during the season talk about feeling miserable out there and regretting signing up for this adventure. Do you believe it was because of Trish blasting her? Because she couldn’t take it out in the elements? Or a combination of the two?
JEFF PROBST: I got the call around an hour after tribal council ended. I had gone back to base camp when the producer on the beach radioed to say there was a pretty intense argument going on between Lindsey and Trish and Lindsey had removed herself from the situation. It’s not unusual for people to be upset after a tribal but for one person to remove themselves from the situation was unusual.  I hopped in a boat and headed out to the beach. Lindsey was sitting alone in the sand just like you saw in the episode. I sat down to talk to her and it was clear she was pulling herself from the game.

As difficult as it is to lose someone from the game in this manner, I was really impressed with the way Lindsey handled it. She was so upset with Trish that she was genuinely concerned she might get physical with her if she stayed in the game.  She wanted to show her daughter a good example of how to handle a situation like that — remove yourself from the situation. As for whether there were other contributing factors such as fatigue and regret, only Lindsey knows for sure.

New Fox series 'I Wanna Marry 'Harry": Real Americans compete for fake prince's heart

Joe Millionaire lives!

Well, sort of. EW has confirmed that Fox will soon debut a new reality series called I Wanna Marry “Harry,” in which a dozen American ladies will compete for the heart of a man they’ve been led to believe is Prince William’s ginger-haired younger brother. In actuality, though, they’re courting Matthew Hicks, “an average English bloke” who’s been given “the royal treatment and an upper crust makeover.”

The series shares more than a little DNA with Fox’s seminal 2003 reality competition Joe Millionaire – which makes sense, since both shows were initially developed by former Fox executive Mike Darnell. (According to Deadline, Darnell brought “Harry” to the network before leaving Fox last spring.)

“Harry” is set to premiere Tuesday, May 27 at 8 p.m. ET, likely with a pilot that features Lorde’s “Royals” at least once. Here’s hoping the show won’t be too (faux) refined to engage in a little bit of subtitled smooching as well:
