Stephenie LaGrossa has competed on Survivor three times now. She's lost 80% of the tribal immunity challenges that she's ever competed in. Her record in Reward Challenges is pretty awful too. Simply put, Stephenie LaGrossa seems to lose no matter who else is on her tribe. Last Thursday night James started a witch hunt against Stephenie. It was crass, unfair and hard to watch. But it did raise an interesting question. No matter how likable she may be, do wins bounce off of Stephenie like bullets off Superman's chest? I asked Stephenie how she explained the stats, and she answered. I'm not sure that I buy the airtight logic of her defense, but hey, Stephenie, we love you anyway, even if you are a 'loser.'

After two brutal immunity challenges loses and two dramatic tribal councils, the heroes of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains are beginning to look less, well, heroic. Despite her alliance with Tom and Colby, Stephenie LaGrossa couldn't save herself from the wrath of Rupert and James. "It's a game, and you want to win, but you want to enjoy your experience out there, because it's miserable as it is," she told TVGuide.com. "And being around people like James and Rupert really did make it unbearable." Following last night's heated tribal council and her early exit, the 29-year-old also discussed what went wrong during the immunity challenge, the deep divisions within the heroes tribe, and her and Tom's now-defunct plan to take the game.

The debut of Survivor Heroes vs. Villains attracted 14.2 million viewers on Thursday, the largest audience for the show since 2007. These fans saw Jessica "Sugar" Kiper become the first castaway to have her torch extinguished on season 20. Below, she talks about the experience... On getting voted off: "I kind of felt like I was DOA since I arrived. I'm weaker when it comes to challenges. And unless you have a really strong alpha male to keep you through the first half...you're going to go." TO Read More Click Here .
Back in 2002 my good friend Mario Lanza wrote a speculative novel for the web called All-Star Survivor: Hawaii. The thing was massive. When printed out it was longer than almost any Stephen King novel. But it was just as addictive as the real show because his characters jumped off the page. Mario went on to write three more, including one exploring of the Second Chance concept fans are still waiting for. Survivor: All Stars was supposed to be the ultimate season, but it was nothing like Mario's seemingly-realistic novel. It turns out that in real life heroes develop massive egos, great players get targeted from Day One, and intense competitors play like they're just there to collect a check. Last night I felt like I was watching Mario's novel come to life. From the opening moments of the show - the iconic shots of Colby's hat and Coach's tattoo, Cirie's line that she's a gangsta in an Oprah suit - you knew that the characters we love were back. The first challenge featured a shattered toe, a topless wrestler, Russell putting Tom in the Scorpion Death Lock, and a shoulder that had to be snapped back into place. Men, Tivo that challenge and watch it again. Sandra will teach you everything you need to know about unhooking a bra strap. To Read More Click Here .
Two years ago on Survivor: Gabon, Jessica "Sugar" Kiper made it to the final three, thanks in part to the large amount of time she spent on Exile Island. Not only did she find an important hidden immunity idol on the island, but she was able to peacefully remove herself from the competition and make it to the finals without any aggressive strategy. On Survivor: Heroes and Villains, she wasn't so lucky, becoming the first castoff of the new season after getting too close for comfort with some of her fellow Heroes (namely a very irritated Colby). Sugar talked with TVGuide.com about her supposed flirtation with Colby, her emotion after losing the immunity challenge and her failed alliances. To Read More Click Here .
