Jenna, youngest Survivor ever, wins Survivor Amazon, beating Matt 6 to 1.
The youngest Survivor contestant ever and the apparent long shot won Survivor Amazon with all but one vote last night. Jenna Morasca, a swimsuit model from Pittsburgh, beat Matthew Von Ertfelda with the largest margin in the show’s history, earning six of the seven jury votes. Game mastermind Rob lost after Jenna won the final immunity, following her victory in the second-to-last immunity challenge. During the reunion, which aired from David Letterman’s Ed Sullivan Theatre because of weather in Central Park, Jeff Probst announced the location for the seventh season: the Pearl Islands off the coast of Panama, where each tribe will have their own island. It’s the same location as the second season of the UK’s Survivor. That season airs this fall.
+ also: bid on Survivor Amazon items, including final votes; proceeds go to charity.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
