Ulong is a tribe of one on Survivor Palau.
With every week that passes, Survivor Palau sets another Survivor record. Last night, Ulong became the first one-person tribe in the show’s 10 seasons, after Koror became the only tribe to win every single immunity challenge. Koror gained its undefeated status and sent Stephenie and Bobby Jon to Tribal Council, where Jeff Probst said that instead of voting, one would go home after an individual immunity challenge. (Although, if it weren’t for the rule prohibiting voting against yourself, Stephenie surely could have convinced Bobby Jon to evict himself, as his muscled torch burned quite a bit dimmer than his tribemate’s.) Stephenie was able to start a fire faster than Bobby Jon, and thus she won immunity, sending BJ home, and sending Stephenie back to camp, alone. Will Stephenie compete as a tribe of one next week? Will there be a merge or an equalizing of the tribes? Will Koror go nuts because they’re unable to stab each other in the back? We’ll find out next week.

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.
