Debuting June 4 on, Reality Gamemasters (which was funded through Kickstarter) pits three Survivor finalists (winners John Cochran from Caramoan and Sophie Clarke from South Pacific, as well as Tocantins runner-up Stephen Fishbach) against three Big Brother schemers (last season’s winner Ian Terry as well as former “America’s Player” Eric Stein and “Brigade” member Matt Hoffman).

Survivor: One World Ep. 24.04, “Bum-Puzzled”: Let’s all get stupid!

Survivor: One World Review, Season 24, Episode 4, “Bum Puzzled”

Airs Thursdays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

During every Survivor season, there are a few moves that defy logic, but the latest episode presents a new low point of epic futility. By voluntarily choosing to head to Tribal Council after winning immunity, the men’s tribe stretches the boundaries of stupidity. This baffling act could make sense in the right situation, but here it only serves the whims of an arrogant bully. The stunning Tribal Council reveals the depths of Colton’s hatred for Bill and why he ranks among the most despicable players in Survivor history. While the conflict makes for great television, it also reveals horrible game play from the entire tribe. The beneficiaries are the women, who struggle in the immunity challenge but come out unscathed.

The men’s decision functions similar to throwing an immunity challenge. Giving up

Nycc '09: The Day Two Blog

The second day of the New York Comic Con has ended, and I have had an exciting and busy day. I began by touring the con with Fangoria TV, including video producer Ian David and Managing Editor Mike Gingold. We ran into Michael Graves, former lead singer of The Misfts, and now star of the new After Dark horror film Perkins 14. We also got a moment to speak with 30 Days Of Night writer and comic book legend, Steve Niles.

I the met up with fashion writer Jess from Fangoria’s Cult Couture. We roamed the con looking for hot new fashion items. We found some great gear and made some new friends in the process.

Back at the Fango booth, Chris and Fangoria intern Sam spread the word of Fango and told everyone all about our three upcoming conventions in Chicago, La, and New York.

Ian David bought us all $5 soft pretzels and $4 sodas.
