The “Survivor: Tocantins” Power Rankings Challenge: Round 8

April 30, 2009

The Rules: Each week, “Survivor: Gabon” alumni and former Onion Alliance kingpin Charlie Herschel and your beloved “Survivor” recapper Gordon Holmes will create separate power rankings. The ranking of the person who is voted out of that Thursday’s episode will determine the amount of points the two combatants will earn. For example, if Sierra is voted out this week, Charlie will receive 7 points and Gordon will receive 5 points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Survivor: Tocantins” Power Rankings Challenge Champion.

Betting on the “Survivor: Tocantins” Power Rankings Challenge is strictly prohibited and somewhat foolish as Charlie is clearly cheating.

Last Week: Tyson was booted in a shocker, earning Charlie 8 points and earning Gordon 6 points. The current score is now Herschel 67 – Holmes 62.

April 24, 2009


A quick tip for any future “Survivor” contestants: If you’re going to talk titanic amounts of trash (or smack, whichever you prefer) make sure you’re going to be safe at Tribal Council. Recently ousted castaway Tyson Apostol learned that lesson the hard way.

‘Survivor’ Castaway Interview – Brendan Synnott

April 20, 2009

It’s been the hottest topic of this season’s “Survivor.” Will Ben “Coach” Wade, the self-professed “Dragon Slayer,” get the best of the man he dubbed his “Dragon,” Brendan Synnott? Well, when the lance finally fell, Coach found himself victorious.

We had a chance to talk to Brendan after he was voted out of the game to get his thoughts on Coach’s nicknames, tall tales, and sexist attitude. As well as his thoughts on the other players. (Wait, there are other players?)
