Around the World in 80 Ways: Rob Mariano Returns to Reality TV -- Where's the Finish Line?

He's competed on four seasons of Survivor. He's traveled the world at least twice for The Amazing Race. And last year, he did the impossible and finally took home the $1 million grand prize in front of millions of TV viewers on Survivor: Redemption Island. So what in the world is "Boston Rob" Mariano doing back on TV less than a year after his triumphant win?  

"I love adventure and I always have," Mariano tells TVGuide.com of his latest reality TV venture, Around the World in 80 Ways. "I never got into Survivor or The Amazing Race or any of these shows to be on TV. I got on originally because I wanted to make some money for my family, and because I love the adventure of it."

Around the World in 80 Ways is heavy on adventure, but unlike so many of Mariano's other TV appearances, there's no finish line or final Tribal Council to name a winner. On the series, which premieres Sunday, Oct. 2 at 10/9c on History, Mariano partners with monster truck driver Dennis Anderson to travel thousands of miles in 10 weeks using every possible mode of transportation: from mules to steamboats to...read more

Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan: We Have the Most Competitive Cast Yet

It's been 10 years since Phil Keoghan first set off on The Amazing Race — but don't show him pictures from back then. "I was talking to [executive producer] Jonathan Littman and he said, 'Man, Phil, I found some photographs of us from 10 years ago where we were at the finishing line in New York City — we were children!' I was like, 'Do I want to see those?'" Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "But I really can't believe it's been that long. It's quite extraordinary to think about."

Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains: A Battle 10 Years in the Making

Survivor often has boiled down to power struggles between perceived good and evil. So it made sense to host/executive producer Jeff Probst to celebrate the show's 10-year anniversary and 20th season with the Heroes vs. Villains edition.

"Heroes vs. Villains was a great idea from the get-go and I think we all knew it," Probst says. "It captures what Survivor really has become about, the good versus the bad."

The Amazing "Romber" Q&A You Just Have to Read!

The southernmost tip of Argentina — aka the end of the world — marked the end of the road for professional reality stars Rob and Amber Mariano. The couple — who met on Survivor: All-Stars, were engaged on the Amazing Race 7 and married on yet another reality show — seemed to be the team to beat on CBS' The Amazing Race: All-Stars, winning each of the first three legs. But following a fluke series of unfortunate events (one of which involved the spelling of "Philippines"), they lost their lead and came in last. TV Guide spoke to the pair the day after their eliminat read more

Am I the only one sick of ...

Question: Am I the only one sick of seeing Survivor's Rob and Amber? I thought it was unfair of them to appear on The Amazing Race. Then Rob was on another show, and now they are doing a show about moving to Vegas where Rob will become a professional poker player. Give us a break. They've had their 15 minutes of fame, now give it to someone else.
Answer: Fifteen? We're talking at least 25 by now, way past their expiration date. I would like to think that all it would take for them to finally go away is for us all to stop paying attention. Count on me to put that plan into effect starting immediately.read more
