'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' Interview with Amanda Kimmel

On Thursday Amanda Kimmel became the fourth member of the jury, and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains officially entered the home stretch. The Final Five is already thinking about how to spend their treasure, while some once dominant players now seem lost at sea. Amanda was surprised that Candice switched sides because, according to her, "Candice wasn't on the bottom." It had appeared to me that Candice was in exactly that predicament, so I pushed Amanda to tell me who was the odd man out. She said it was "probably Colby." To Read More Click Here .

Survivor's Amanda: I'll Never Play the Game Again

In addition to helping Survivor celebrate 10 years and 20 seasons on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, China and Micronesia finalist Amanda Kimmel celebrated an important personal feat during her time on Samoa: She became the first player to reach 100 days of the game. Unfortunately, the third time was not the charm for Amanda, who fell short of making it to her third tribal council. Looking back at her reality TV career, Amanda says she's proud of what she's accomplished, but has zero plans to return for round four. "My Survivor career is over," she says. The 25-year-old Kimmel spoke with about her biggest mistakes, why she felt the game "got too crazy" and why she won't put herself through another season. To Read More Click Here .

Survivor's JT Talks About His Unbelievable Move

Oh, JT, JT. In Survivor: Tocantins, JT played a great game, making it with his ally Stephen to the very end and ultimately winning the million dollars. But in Heroes vs. Villains, things went very differently. JT made one of the biggest, boldest and many would say dumbest moves in the show's history, when he gave away an immunity idol to Russell - a member of the Villains tribe, and someone JT knew almost nothing about, because his initial season, Samoa, had not aired when Heroes vs. Villains was filmed. That move came back to bite JT big time, as he was voted out this past week, on the heels of an incredible power play by Parvati, that had her use the two different hidden idols she was in possession of (one of which was originally JT's!) to protect both Jerri and Sandra from any votes cast against them. I spoke to JT to get his perspective on what went down and what he thinks of Russell, Parvati and others he played with this time around. To Read More Click Here .

Tonight's TV Hot List: Thursday, April 29, 2010

* Bones (8/7c Fox) Remember when Brennan and Booth belted out Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" in Season 1? Well, they get another crack at it tonight - don't go near the refrigerator, Booth! - as the show serves as the opening act for a "Fox Rocks" week of musically themed episodes. The current rendition is part of a murder investigation at a rock-and-roll fantasy camp, the last place a rich daredevil, whose body is found in a hotel washing machine, was seen alive. Buckcherry singer Josh Todd guest stars as a suspect. * The Mentalist (10/9c CBS) Malcolm McDowell, who once portrayed an evil media mogul on an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, is famous for playing bad guys (let's not forget A Clockwork Orange), but this time he is a cult leader suspected of a media boss's murder. It seems that the victim's publication wasn't too kind in its take on McDowell's character, who may have wanted revenge. * CSI : Crime Scene Investigation (9/8c CBS) Tim Conway can knock 'em dead with his comedic chops, but is he capable of murder? The veteran funnyman guest stars as one half of a legendary comedy duo set to reunite for one night only at a Las Vegas casino. But the reunion never happens, because Conway's partner is found dead before the show can go on. Jennifer Tilly also guest stars as Conway's not-exactly-faithful wife, Terpsie. * Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains (8/7c CBS) "You have some explaining to do," Russell told Parvati at the last tribal council after she produced two immunity idols to make sure that JT, and not a Villain, was ousted. Russell had no idea Parvati had her own idol in addition to the one he gave her. For the first time, he was clueless as to what was going down at tribal. Now, Parvati seems to have the upper hand over her notorious alliance partner. But Russell's biggest threat might be Sandra, who is willing to work with the heroes to get the sleazy Texas oilman sent to the jury ASAP. * The Office (9/8c NBC) Jim and Pam, famed for being such a fine team away from Dunder Mifflin-turned-Sabre, become a professional pair as well. Tonight they combine forces to work on their very first joint sales pitch. They present it to Donna (Amy Pietz), manager and barmaid at the local hot spot, who once shared a bizarre chemistry with Michael after almost booting him out of her bar. Of course, there will be mix-ups with Michael in the mix, as he has trouble understanding body language. Meanwhile, Dwight presses Mindy to take part in the minority training program. * Grey's Anatomy (9/8c ABC) In the last new episode, nearly a month ago, the hot docs couldn't stop talking about having babies (or not having them), but now the theoretical becomes the in-your-face. You can thank Sloan (Leven Rambin) for that. She was last seen interrupting an intimate moment her dad was having with Teddy with the news that he was about to become a granddad. We'll see how Mark deals with it. And as for Teddy, her career might also be interrupted: Derek is doing some cardiothoracic-surgeon shopping. * PGA Tour Golf (3/2c Golf Channel) Four of the Top 5 golfers in the world tee off in Charlotte as Jim Furyk joins 2010 Masters movers and shakers Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood and Tiger Woods at the Quail Hollow Championship. Furyk was jettisoned from Augusta by missing the cut by eight strokes. This is Woods' second tournament back from self-imposed exile, after he tied for fourth at the Masters. Westwood ended up three strokes behind Mickelson's title-winning 16-under in the Tour's first major of the year. Source Here

Survivor's JT: I Wouldn't Give Russell the Idol Again

James "JT" Thomas may have won Survivor: Tocantins, but after Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, he will now forever be known for his strategic, but ultimately disastrous move of giving an immunity idol to a member of the other tribe. Not only did JT give an immunity idol to someone he didn't know, on the other team, but he gave the idol to Russell Hantz, a player infamous for his ability to find immunity idols without clues, and arguably one of the most powerful members of the Villains tribe. The 25-year-old Thomas spoke with us about his widely ridiculed game play, the lack of trust on the Heroes tribe altogether and what you didn't see on TV when it came to finding that fateful idol.
