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. You can now listen to the whole thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast by clicking on the audio player below. (The ‘Survivor’ interview with Dale begins 19 minutes in.) READ FULL STORY

'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

'Survivor': Did Jeff Probst demand too much or not enough for more rice?

Someone got voted out on tonight’s Survivor, but most of the debate and discussion will center around the trade Jeff Probst offered to the Hunahpu tribe for more rice (since they had gorged themselves on their entire supply already). My full recap will be up later [UPDATE: Dalton's recap is now live], but read on to find out or sound off on what happened. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.] READ FULL STORY

Kelley from 'Survivor' reveals who cooked all the rice

No wonder Hunahpu has won every single Survivor immunity challenge they have tried to win this season (Drew intentionally lost one because he is a moron) — it’s because they were eating twice as much rice as the other tribe. As a result, the folks stuck on Hunahpu will have to strike some sort of bargain with Jeff Probst next week to replenish their practically non-existent food supply. What will it cost them? We’ll find out next Wednesday. But whose fault is it? Who kept insisting on cooking all of that rice? We asked the latest person voted out (and a former Hunahpuian), Kelley Wentworth, to reveal who exactly was responsible when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning, and she was more than willing to give up the goods. We also asked her whether her dad helped or hurt her in the game, why Drew was so obsessed with getting her out, and to tell us all about her reunion with Drew at Ponderosa after being voted out. You can now hear the entire interview right here by clicking on the audio player below for the latest InsideTV Podcast. (The Kelley interview starts at 39:30.)

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst explains how Keith got his immunity idol back

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: As viewers, we all make immediate judgments after a tribe swap in terms of which tribe got the upper hand. What was your immediate impression once we had our new Hunahpu and Coyopa tribes? And who individually was helped and hurt the most by the switch?
JEFF PROBST: Well, the great thing about a switch is it almost always guarantees some level of chaos because all you need is for one person to switch tribes and you have a new dynamic within that group. The big story this switch was the division of loved ones and singles. My immediate reaction was “this is going to force the game into a new direction” because now you have to make a big decision. Do you hold on and hope a merge is coming and try to wait it out to get back with your old alliances, or do you jump ship right now and play the hand in front of you? Jeremy is clearly in a bit of trouble because of the Josh and Reed partnership. But… anything can happen in this game. It’s amazing to me how many times the writing is on the wall and then gets erased and replaced with something new. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor': And the eliminated contestant is...

There was both a tribe swap and an attempted food swap in tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur. But when all was said and done, another contestant’s million-dollar-dream came to end. What happened and who went home as a result? My full recap will be up later [UPDATE: Dalton's recap is now live], but to find out and sound off on what happened, read on for more.

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst on that weird Tribal Council voting

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: What, you didn’t want to take back that flint and give them some fishing gear? I can’t for the life of me figure out why, Jeff! Your thoughts on the proposed re-swap of fishing gear for flint?
JEFF PROBST: Well, first of all, I loved it! I was so happy that Drew felt comfortable enough to go for it because it was a fun moment. I really think he thought I might be swayed, but let’s be clear: There was zero chance of that trade happening. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor': Well, that sure was stupid

Someone made the ultimate Survivor blunder tonight, and then paid the price for that blunder. What happened and who went home?

John Rocker talks about that big 'Survivor' blowup

Even the smallest thing on Survivor can completely set you on the path towards elimination. John Rocker learned that the hard way after making a deal with Jeremy at Exile Island to help protect his wife. Once she was voted out by the tribe, Jeremy sought his revenge by revealing Rocker’s controversial past to his tribe. Then Natalie — whose twin sister Nadiya was also voted out by Rocker — let fly at the former pitcher after the immunity contest for both his performance in the challenges and his past comments in a 1999 Sports Illustrated article. And that was pretty much it for John Rocker. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst on that 'ugly' confrontation

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: Well, Jeff, this seems pretty clearly to be a case of John Rocker’s past coming back to haunt him. Once Jeremy decided to use that as a weapon against him and Natalie seized upon it, was that pretty much it for him?
JEFF PROBST: I think the incident at the challenge was probably a big impetus for voting out Rocker. I remember that challenge pretty clearly and I remember feeling “this is ugly.” All of it. Those are not the kind of moments I want for Survivor but when you take a group of strangers and let them build their own society you can’t control how they will behave or the decisions they will make. I think Rocker’s actions speak pretty clearly.  He was baited by Natalie and he took the bait. Hard to recover from some of the things he said. From Natalie’s point of view, who knows if she meant it or was just playing the game, but either way, it was effective. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: San Juan del Sur': And the eliminated contestant is...

There was a huge blow-up after the immunity challenge in tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur. What happened and who went home as a result?

Val from 'Survivor' talks about her 'outlandish, ridiculous lie'

She made one of the most inexplicable lies in Survivor history — claiming she had two hidden immunity idols after only 6 days, and thereby immediately and nonsensically paining a huge target right on her own back. And it cost her. Val Collins was the second person voted off of Survivor: San Juan del Sur last night — a victim of her own self-sabotage. But as if being booted from the game wasn’t bad enough, she also had to call into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to explain her actions, and now you can hear the entire conversation right here on the InsideTV Podcast.

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst weighs in on Val's 'completely unbelievable lie'

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: Okay, Monty Hall, let’s talk about the Let’s Make a Deal crossover episode we just witnessed. Looks like Reed and Hunahpu tried to get you to play the part of sucker in their proposed trade of half a bag of rice for another flint. Two part question: Part 1: Even if they had come in at the top of the challenge and pleaded their case, was there any chance you would have settled for less than the entirety of the fishing gear? Part 2: Did you consider checking with the other tribe to see if they objected to the switch?
JEFF PROBST: Part 1:  Had they offered up the beans off the top I’m not sure what I would have done but most likely I would have started a conversation about the value of fire vs. beans and see where it took us, but it’s unlikely that half a bag of anything would get you a new flint.

Part 2:  No. It’s not their call. It’s a bit weird to have it play out in front of the other tribe, but it did so that’s how it went down. What’s really fun is that storyline is not over, it has a punch line still to come! READ FULL STORY
