Survivor Vanuatu concludes Sunday with the final four, Scout, Twila, Eliza, Chris.
Survivor Vanuatu‘s final Thursday episode narrowed the pool from five to four, as the new alliance sent original alliance member Julie to the jury. Eliza tried to align with Chris, however, and vote Twila’s banana-hording butt out of the tribe. Chris stuck with Scout and Twila, though, which should make for an interesting dynamic when the series concludes on Sunday, starting at 8 p.m. ET. So who will win? Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and I offer our predictions at MSNBC, but I do not pretend to have any idea, really. The finale will air opposite Desperate Housewives, and set up an epic battle of reality TV versus drama. Or not. Media Life suggests “we can expect some scratching and clawing for viewers, with ‘Survivor’ likely getting the worst of it.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
