The Amazing Race season 22 returned last night after a week long hiatus due to the Country Music Awards. This week the contestants were racing through the frigid temperatures of Switzerland after the heat of Africa. The episode kicked off with 6 teams, but after an exciting night there are just five groups vying for prize.
This week the teams traveled by train before following the sounds of a horn for their next clue. Once they grabbed the clue by making their way across a wall rock to grab a clue from a Travelocity gnome, the final 6 had to use a sled to transport 200 pounds of cheese to a barn that is located down a snowy hill.

Survivor Caramoan brought some unexpected turns in this latest episode. After the elimination of Corrine in last week’s airing, this season seems to have found new life. Some exciting highlights included Eddie, Cochran, Michael, Reynold and Erik winning the Reward challenge.
The five appeared to be bonding, but looks can be deceiving since Cochran wasn’t actually on board with Michael’s talk of an all-male alliance. This could have worked in Malcolm’s favor had he won the challenge since Sherri, Dawn and Andrea spent most of the show plotting to vote him off. Luckily, Malcolm was smart enough to spot an enemy in Andrea, but fell for Dawn’s manipulations which led to Reynold revealing his Idol to her. Continue reading
Dancing With The Stars Season 16 rolled on through the competition, as we saw Lisa Vanderpump eliminated from the competition. Vanderpump’s elimination means that there are just nine contestants remaining moving forward.

It continues to be an unlucky year for the men of American Idol. Down to the final six singers, Burnell Taylor was voted off during last night’s results show. During Wednesday nights episode Taylor did little to extend his stay when he stiffly sang Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love a Bad Name” in lieu of rock n’ roll week.
The singer was obviously out of his comfort zone and it showed. Judge Keith Urban called it by telling Burnell that rock ‘n roll was not his thing. Randy was also right on with his comments about Taylor “being behind the beat.” Jimmy Lovine’s comments were hilarious. “He was so behind the music. The band was on east coast time and he was on west time. He should be in the bottom two,” Lovine said. Continue reading
Survivor contestants entered into their twentieth day on the Caramoan Island this week. The Wednesday night episode picked up from where last week left off after the dismissal of Julia with the exciting new merge of the two tribes.
After the Gota tribe was transported to the Bikal tribe by boat, the group decided to take on a new identity following the union. Malcolm suggested that they name themselves after his mother Madeline, but backwards. Now known as Enil Edam, the drama began quickly for the competitors who started to make alliances after a somewhat calm sit down to eat sandwiches. Tensions were high most of the day with plenty of whispering and plotting. Continue reading
The Voice’s fourth season continued with blind auditions this week. The two-hour Monday night episode consisted of the coaches trying to build a talented team, adding to their arsenal of singers.

The country singer also talked Holly Tucker, an alto saxophone player, into joining his team. Continue reading
