'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.

TV Land rebooting 'Candid Camera'

Screw America’s Funniest Home Videos. Screw Punk’d. Screw the Jamie Kennedy Experiment (not really, JKX was amazing). Candid Camera is the OG when it comes to watching people make fools of themselves on national television. And it’s been off the air since 2004. Creator Allen Funt started pranking folks on a radio show called Candid Microphone (doesn’t have the same ring to it, huh?) back in 1947. A year later it moved over to TV, where it was renamed and picked up the most-useful-show-slogan ever: “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera!” Be honest, how many times have you sarcastically said that to someone? Mr. Funt himself hosted the program until 1992. His son, Peter Funt succeed him as the show’s host until it was canceled in 2004. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany reveals her favorite clone

We all have our favorite clone on Orphan Black. For many, it is funky bisexual scientist Cosima. For others — like myself — stressed out soccer mom Alison gets top billing. And still others gravitate toward punk protagonist Sarah. But if you ask the woman who plays them all, Tatiana Maslany, who her favorite clone is lately, you’ll get a surprising answer: Rachel.
