'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst weighs in on the latest blindside

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

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: A few weeks back we saw Tyson offer to take his girlfriend Rachel’s place at Redemption Island if she wanted, and she told him to stay put. This week, Monica asked to take husband Brad’s spot and he declined. Do you think these offers to switch are genuine, or are they simply for show, counting on the fact that their spouse would never ask them to sacrifice themselves like that?
JEFF PROBST: I think it’s a good question. My hunch is that nobody really wants to give up their spot. For instance, I don’t think Rupert really wanted his wife to accept his offer to switch, but he gets so caught up in being Rupert that he sometimes makes decisions that don’t always make the most sense. As for everybody else that has offered to switch thus far, they are probably desperately hoping their loved one declines the offer. It just takes so much to get on the show, I gotta believe they all want to play. That’s why that twist is so fun because it really does force you to “put up or shut up.” READ FULL STORY

'DWTS' cast reacts to 'Saved by the Bell' homage -- VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-10-15 at 1.18.40 AM

On Week 5′s “Most Memorable Year of My Life” episode of Dancing With the Stars, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Val “Zack Attack” Chmerkovskiy paid homage to Jessie Spano’s “I’m so excited! I’m so… scared!” caffeine pill breakdown from Saved by the Bell in a spirited jive straight out of 1990. (Compare the ballroom version to the original over on PopWatch.)

After the show, the pair provided EW with an audio rendition of the scene — once more, with feeling! — and explained that endless requests from nostalgic Saved by the Bell fans drove them to do it.

Watch the rest of the cast attempt “the Jessie Spano” and share their own Saved by the Bell memories below. (Spoiler alert: The Pretty Little Liars star nails it the hardest.) READ FULL STORY

MTV is searching for the next big... 'Copycat'?

MTV might be a little behind the singing show curve, but at least they’re honest about it in their new series, Copycat. Next Entertainment, in association with Warner Horizon Television, will produce a new half-hour show where wannabe singers battle it out on stage for a cash prize. The catch? The competitors are trying to sound like their favorite recording artists to earn the title of Ultimate Copycat.

The series, from The Bachelor producer, Mike Fleiss, is set to air in the afternoon, perhaps in hopes of connecting with the same audience that delivered solid ratings in those glorious TRL years. No word on the premiere date yet, so tell that karaoke DJ to power up the Beyoncé, because you’ve got some practicing to do.

What do you think — better to suspect that someone is secretly trying to sound like Adele, or have them actually fess up to it and battle Mariah and Whitney sound-alikes while they’re at it?

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst breaks down the big Tribal Council shocker

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

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You and I have talked about how the majority of the time everyone pretty much has their mind made up exactly what they are going to do by the time they enter Tribal Council. Well, Caleb just blew that to smithereens by telling the rest of his tribe moments before voting that he was writing down Brad’s name, engineering a huge last second shift. Take us through what that moment was like being there in person. READ FULL STORY

Is this week's 'Catfish' really rapper Bow Wow? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Catfish: The TV Show has built its reputation on twisted tales of love, friendship, and the Internet, some crazier than others. Hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph travel the country to connect two people who have a relationship — but have never met in person. This week’s episode features Keyonnah, a young woman, who believes she has been in contact with 106 & Park host and rapper Bow Wow. (Yup, that Bow Wow.) They met when the 19-year-old single mom messaged a Bow Wow fan page on Facebook. Now, they text and talk on the phone, even discussing starting a life together with their children. “Bow Wow” has even sent her over $10,000 throughout the months of their correspondence.  A love story this bizarre must be true…right?

Check out exclusive sneak peeks from this celebrity special episode of Catfish: READ FULL STORY

'DWTS': Julianne Hough slams Mark Ballas

Julianne Hough, former Dancing With the Stars pro and two-time winner, guest-judged Monday’s performances, and had some choice words for her former competitive partner Mark Ballas following his foxtrot with Christina Milian.

Still traumatized by Ballas’ self-spotlighting tendencies, Hough wasn’t a fan of the pair’s side-by-side choreography. “I really wanted to see you shine,” she told Mliian, then paused. “I danced with Mark. You have to stand in front to make sure you’re seen.”

Ballas reacted to Hough’s comments after the show Monday. Watch his interview with EW below: READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Jeff Probst says 'we couldn't blame Colton without also blaming ourselves'

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

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Like a lot of viewers, I know you had your doubts about Colton returning, and sure enough he quits just a few days into the game. He talked a lot about rehabbing his image this time around. What do you think the public perception of Colton Cumbie is after this outing?
JEFF PROBST: Probably pretty close to what I said to him at Redemption Island Arena. Go away and don’t come back. I very much felt as though I was saying what most viewers would say if given the chance. There was no image rehab happening during Blood vs. Water. I don’t know Colton outside of this game so maybe he leads a very happy, loving, balanced life back home. I hope he does. I have formed my opinion only from the handful of days he has played Survivor and based on that — my opinion is that he’s led a pretty sheltered and soft life.  When things go south, he just quits and goes home. I wasn’t surprised at all that he quit. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': The newbies reveal what other Survivors they'd like to play with

On Survivor: Blood vs. Water, returning contestants from the show have come back to play with/against their loved ones. As a result, we have spouses (Rupert & Laura, Monica & Brad, Candice & John), other couples (Colton & Caleb, Tyson & Rachel, Kat & Hayden), mothers and daughters (Tina & Katie, Laura & Ciera), siblings (Aras & Vytas), and an uncle and niece (Gervase and Marissa).

But what if those newbies could come play with someone else that was not their loved one? Whom then would they pick? I asked them that very question while out on location before the game began. (Well, I asked most of them that question. Candice and her husband John showed up late at the very end of the day due to being a last minute medical replacement for RC and her dad, so my time with them was short and I wasn’t able to squeeze the question in. Either that or I simply forgot. But I’m going to go ahead and blame it on the time constraints.)

So what former Survivor player would Hayden like to play with? What about Brad — or, as Probst calls him, “Culpepper”? And Vytas? Find out by watching the video below. You may be surprised by some of the answers. Or maybe not. I guess it all depends on how surprised you generally get in life. In any event, enjoy… READ FULL STORY

Simon Cowell on low 'X Factor' ratings: 'If it's good, the ratings will go up'

For Simon Cowell, the ratings game is simple. “If it’s good, the ratings will go up. If it’s terrible they’ll go down,” the reality mogul told EW.

The X Factor’s third season got off to a rocky start, hitting a new ratings low with its season premiere and continuing to disappoint. Cowell isn’t worried, though, and sees the dip as part of the cycle that all shows must endure. “You’ve just got to do what we’ve always done over the year for these shows,” he said. “You have your high moments, you have your dips, and you roll your sleeves up and do something better than everyone else is doing.” That high moment, he hopes, could be the new Four Chair Challenge, airing Wednesday on Fox.

'Dancing With the Stars' cast reacts to injured Bill Nye's robot dance -- VIDEO

Bill Nye, TV’s Science Guy, ignored the Dance Doc’s orders to stay off his torn quadricep on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars (read our full recap), opting instead to dance a modified “jazz” routine to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” It was awkward, hilarious, brave, and stupid all at once — and it’s embedded below.

The remaining Dancing With the Stars couples spoke to EW after Week 3′s “Hollywood Night” about Nye’s decision to dance despite his injury. Would they do the same, in his shoes?

“I would,” said Christina Milian as her partner Mark Ballas, ever the sad clown, looked on disapprovingly. “I’d be like, ‘Okay, let’s do this in a wheelchair!” Watch below: READ FULL STORY
