Survivor All-Stars concludes Sunday; final four are Rob, Amber, Jenna, Rupert.
The final four Survivor All-Stars tribe members are Amber, Rob, Jenna, and Rupert. They’ll get ugly and competitive, or not, as the series concludes with a two-hour finale (and one-hour surprise-filled reunion) on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. If you’re keeping track, this makes fifty percent of The ChillOne’s final four/final two spoiler correct. In last night’s episode, Rob won the car-and-drive-in-movie reward challenge, winning a Chevrolet truck; he selected Amber to go with him to see the film (Lord of the Flies). Surprisingly, she received a Chevrolet car, making for lots of Chevy porn during the episode. Later, after Rob engineered a fight between Big Tom and Rupert that left both lunkheads refusing to join together and boot Rob or Amber, Rob and Amber lied to Big Tom. They voted him out instead of Jenna, making the jury chock-full of people who’d like to stick Rob and Amber’s heads on a stake.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

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.
