Last week there was no shortage in drama on the show. With Brandon Mychal Smith pulling out of the competition and Bethenny Frankel showing the judges she won’t go quietly. After the performances, Jonny Moseley still remained top dog with Rebecca Budig nipping at his heels. The competition is coming to a close and tonight, the stakes are high as the stars compete for the final two spots in tomorrow’s finale. Honestly, if you are one of the ten people who actually watch this show, its should be a no brainer that Bethenny is going home tonight. But, you never how America votes, so we may be in for the shock of the century.
Tonight, the pairs have had to learn not one, but two dances in the short week they have had to prepare. First, the three couples will the take the ice in a group routine. The extra points they earn in this round could really make a difference. Then, there is the flashy free-skate where anything can happen. The scores from last week will be to the scores from this week. That, paired with your votes will determine who will be the final two couples.
We get to sneak a look at the rehearsal for the group routine with the show choreographers. They will be dancing together as a big group but each pair will get thirty seconds to shine on their own. Jonny knows he’s the only male celeb left so he has to step it up to match up to the male pros. Fred and Rebecca take a moment to size up the competition giving them confidence in their partnership. For a quick break, the couples head out to volunteer and skate with some local kids. It was really great to see them all work together but now, its competition time.
Battle Of The Blades and Skating With The Stars may be new to North America, but Dancing On Ice had been running in the UK for five years and is about to embark on its sixth series in the New Year. So, why am I so excited about a show that I can’t even watch on my home soil? Because a good friend of mine is going to be one of the new pro skaters added to this year’s series.
His name is Colin Ratushniak. Originally from Brandon, MB, Canada, this male skater got his first big break when he started skating for Disney on Ice. He has appeared in many of their shows including the popular High School Musical. His career has continued to grow being asked to skate for different events and companies and has now, landed one of his biggest gigs of all time. I used to dance with his sister Kayla back when I first started out. I’m so excited for him and can’t wait to see how he does on the show. Did you know that Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) is one of the judges? There are some surprise cast members (aka Vanilla Ice?) joining this year’s series and some first time pros. The list has been revealed and Homorazzi has it here.
Another season of television’s first reality show is wrapping up. It’s day 37 as this final episode starts. Dan and Fabio are talking and are thinking Holly should go out…No! I love Holly! Well, that’s only if Fabio wins immunity. It appears that Holly, Sash, and Chase are still three strong and Fabio’s not going to take any chances at the immunity challenge.
Immunity Challenge: In this challenge, the survivors have to race out to their station where they find a question about Nicaragua. They choose an answer and grab the corresponding bag containing puzzle pieces. f they get the wrong answer, their bag will contain black pieces. Once they have three bags, they use the pieces to solve a puzzle. First person to figure out puzzle wins immunity.
With only five remaining Survivors in the Outwit, Outlast, Outplay battle for a million dollars, it’s anybody’s game – sort of. The two hour finale is tonight where one of the final five will be crowned the sole Survivor of the 21st Season. The final five include Chase, Holly, Sash, Fabio and Dan.
At the last tribal council, it was brought out in the open that Chase, Holly, and Sash had a three way alliance and that Fabio and Dan were next on the chopping block. Essentially, the two outsiders need to win immunity or they are toast. I have a hunch that Fabio can pull it off, but Dan has no chance. Even if Dan were to make it to the finals, I don’t think he could win considering he never helped win any challenges and I don’t think he needs the money if he wore $1500 shoes to play Survivor in.

If you’re like me and love reading spoilers, boy have I got some juicy morsels for you today. As you can tell from the title, the upcoming season will be titled “Survivor: Redemption Island“. Before I go into more detail, I’m going to give you one final warning.

Tonight is the night that really matters. Which groups will give it all the got when it counts, and which groups will crack under the pressure? Tonight, the competitors will not only have to suffer one, but two heartbreaking eliminations. Tonight, the groups have two challenges. The first, singing a medley of songs from most influential artists of all time. If they survive this round, they are on to round two. The judges have heard these groups for a while, and its there turn to pick which songs they’d like to hear.
We begin the night with a captivating group performance. All together, they sing With A Little From My Friends by The Beatles. I absolutely loved the arrangement of this piece. They picked the right people to take on lead vocals and the harmonies of the ensemble was absolutely inspired. I’m also a sucker for a good Beatles tune so that didn’t hurt either. What did you think of the group performance? Once Nick describes the challenges of the night, we are on the first performance.
With Benry getting voted last week, Fabio is just happy to be alive in the game. Sash, on the other hand, feels more in control of the game right now than ever and wants Fabio to be the next to go. As you can tell by what I titled the episode, it’s an intense one. Emotional and extremely tense…but we’ll get to that later in the post.
First off, the six remaining tribe members get their tree mail to find a sprint 4G cell phone. They watch video messages from their loved ones, which brings everyone is brought to tears (including me – LOL). The tree mail gets them mentally prepared for the reward challenge ahead. Fabio and Chase discuss taking each other and Sash if either of them win reward. Oh man – we’ve heard that before…
The winner of this week’s reward challenge gets to sail down coast where they’ll enjoy a meal… with one of their loved ones! One by one, Jeff introduces each of their loved ones, starting with the mothers of Chase, Fabio, and Sash. Next comes Dan’s son, Jane’s daughter, and Holly’s husband, who she’s been married to for 25 years. The loves ones are participating in the challenge.
