'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Brothers Aras and Vytas discuss the game so far -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Before this season of Survivor: Blood vs. Water began, I tweeted out that my pre-game interview with Aras and Vytas Baskuaskas was the most impressive I had ever done. So in that sense, it is not surprising they both made it to the merge, which happens on tonight’s episode. But when you consider all they have been through to this point — Aras being targeted by former alliance partner Tyson; Vytas being the sole male on the Galang tribe — it was by no means a given they would make it this far. But they did. And now, in an EW.com exclusive, the brothers talk about their journey so far in the game and how they made it to this point. Plus, to spice things up, we have some exclusive photos of the first post-merge challenge for you — photos that appear to be strategically cropped so we do not see who made it back into the game from Redemption Island. (Click through all 4 pages to read the entire Q&A and see all the exclusive photos.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Vytas, your strategy at Galang seemed to be to let the weak links emerge and do themselves in. Was there ever a consideration towards targeting Tina and Katie as the tribe’s single “loved ones” pair? 

VYTAS: No. Even though she was not a part of the guy alliance at the original Tadhana, I had made sure to form a good relationship with Katie. I knew that she was my link into the new Galang because her mom would support her. Once Tina embraced me as a confidant of her daughter, that’s when I was safe. It was the mother-daughter pair that kept me alive on Galang so it would’ve been foolish to target them, especially since I knew the merge was coming and Aras and I would need as many other pairs to align with as possible.

InsideTV Podcast: Kat from 'Survivor' says she was 'pissed' Hayden did not take her place at Redemption Island

There was a super awkward scene in last night’s episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water where Kat Edorrson — who had been voted out of her tribe and was set to compete in a duel to stay alive at Redemption Island — flat out told her boyfriend Hayden that she wanted him to swap spots with her. Only one problem: Hayden didn’t want to. Therefore, he didn’t. So how did Kat feel about that after she was eliminated? “After the game, I was PISSED!” she told Jessica Shaw and me when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning.

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst weighs in on puzzle copying

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I have asked you this before, but in light of Laura blatantly copying off of John’s puzzle at the duel, and Kat not wanting to do it because she viewed it as “cheating,” it seems worth asking again: Why not put blinders up so contestants can not copy off of each other during puzzles, especially since it can give the person closer to the completed one (in this case, Laura) an advantage?
JEFF PROBST: Complicated question and answer. Historically we have used them more times than not. But then there are certain puzzles where cheating just doesn’t help because the puzzle is so complicated that by the time you realize what your opponent is doing, it’s too late. There are a lot of factors that go into deciding whether we use one or not. As to the fairness issue — that comes down to the luck of the draw (we always draw for spots) or in the case of Redemption Island — it’s the order in which you arrive at Redemption. We always fall back on the idea that this is their world. We strive to let them make up as many rules as we can. In the end, how you play the game will determine your outcome as you still have to get people to vote for you in order to win.  READ FULL STORY

A&E developing reality show with Channing Tatum

The next step after exposing the world of male strip clubs? Descending into a bordello-themed New Orleans nightclub, naturally.

EW has confirmed that Channing Tatum is developing an hourlong reality pilot for A&E that revolves around Saints & Sinners, a Bourbon Street bar/restaurant that Tatum opened with friend and business partner Keith Kurtz last fall. Tatum and Kurtz will executive produce, as will Original Media’s Charlie Corwin.

Saints & Sinners offers “food, spirits, music, and a sinfully good time,” according to its website. “Styled after the famous red-light district bordellos and burlesque halls of New Orleans’ Storyville era, Saints & Sinners is Tatum’s tribute to the city’s ribald, good-time reputation.”

Expect lots of wrought iron, red accents, and brightly-colored drinks in martini glasses. Just don’t count on seeing Tatum’s famous abs; it’s currently unclear whether the actor will appear in the prospective series.

Oscar-, Emmy-, Grammy-, and Golden Globe-winning superstar (so she’s an EGOG winner) Cher will guest judge next Monday’s performances on Dancing With the Stars. She’ll also perform as a musical guest, announced host Tom Bergeron during tonight’s Week 7 telecast.

Cher will fill in for Len Goodman, who’s taking the week off to judge the show in Britain. Julianne Hough stepped in as guest judge the other time Goodman was away this season, on October 7.

The DWTS cast shared their reactions — some via song! — to Cher’s upcoming glittery star-swoop following tonight’s show. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Brad Culpepper defends 'Survivor' strategy

He formed a power alliance right out of the gate, but then broke up that power alliance and subsequently got powered right out of the game. However, Survivor Blood vs. Water’s Brad Culpepper insists there is another level to his strategy that people are not seeing, and that all of his actions were not to benefit him, but rather his wife Monica’s game. The ousted contestant called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss his controversial run on the reality program — a run that saw one person curse him out, another flip him off, and another stage a Tribal Council coup to remove him from the tribe.

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst addresses the big challenge whoopsie

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So you switched up the tribes this week. Tell me your initial impressions of the new tribes as soon as each were formed. Were you hoping for more couples — like Tina and Katie — to end up on the same tribe to see how that dynamic played out?
JEFF PROBST:
Honestly… and I know you sometimes doubt my authenticity, I stopped “hoping” for results years ago. I truly don’t give it a thought. We put the buffs out, we let them pick which one we want and we play it out. This dates back to the All-Star season when we did a switch and Amber was the only person who had to switch tribes and by all accounts she was dead in the water. We felt so bad for her, it seemed so unfair…. Amber won the season. So, having said that — my initial response was “once again the reality gods are looking out for us.” The division of tribes was so lopsided in so many ways that it completely shook up the game and that is all you could ask for of a switch.

'Queer Eye' 10 years later: The Fab Five's 'Make-better' legacy

When Queer Eye for the Straight Guy premiered in 2003, it was an instant hit. With the premise of five openly gay style experts hijacking a schlubby straight dude to give his lifestyle a reboot, the show was as entertaining as it was helpful. What wasn’t there to like about Ted, Carson, Thom, Kyan, and Jai? They were funny, they had chemistry, and they gave straight women everywhere the hope that their cavemen could be transformed using a few “hip tips.”

But Queer Eye was more than just a fun show — it was also ground-breaking. So, when the Fab Five sit down with Bravo’s Andy Cohen for the show’s 10-year reunion tonight, in addition to celebrating the fabulousness of Queer Eye, it’s also a chance to examine how this little makeover show ended up making over the mainstream media’s representation of gay men.

For the Fab Five, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (the titled was shortened to Queer Eye after season 3), was just another gig, not a vehicle for social change. “That was sort of the least, the last thing on my mind,” said grooming guru Kyan Douglas. “I think I was nervous about being on TV because I had never done that before. I think I was nervous about how this show would be received because we had five openly gay cast members that were not playing characters — that were being themselves. We were just real-life dudes that were on TV.”

“I don’t think any of us involved in the show realized the impact it would have when we were doing it,” said fashion savant Carson Kressley. “All I wanted to do was get rid of mullets and pleated khakis.” He added, “We never had a political agenda.”

EW interviewed a number of media experts and LBGT educators to find out whether they think the Bravo series had a social impact beyond the sartorial advice and fun catchphrases.  READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Candice says 'I basically lost my mind' on 'Survivor'

The third time was definitely not the charm for Candice Cody (formerly Woodcock). She returned to play again alongside her husband John for Survivor: Blood vs. Water, yet found herself voted out of her tribe mere minutes into the game. Yet the threepeat offender managed to last all the way to day 11 due to her dominance at Redemption Island. However, her skill/luck finally ran out, losing to hubby John and arch-nemesis Brad Culpepper in a duel. Candice called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to talk all about it. And there was a lot to talk about. READ FULL STORY
