Matthew Lenahan's nickname on Survivor: Nicaragua was "Sash," but he might as well have been called The Comeback Kid. He started out with a strong social game and an equally manipulative ally in Brenda Lowe. But after Brenda was blindsided, and after allies NaOnka Mixon and Kelly Shinn quit the game, Sash seemed destined to fail. Thanks to several key strategic moves, however, Sash made it to the final three. The only problem? The jurors favored emotional connections over smart plays and he received a stunning zero votes for the million dollars. The 30-year-old real estate broker from New York, N.Y. spoke with TVGuide.com about why he thought he could win, how Fabio Birza changed the game and his thoughts on Jane Bright's tribal council remarks...
Blue Bloods, Defenders
Two of CBS' freshman series, Blue Bloods and The Defenders, are trading prime-time real estate next month.
CBS announced Tuesday that Blue Bloods will air Wednesdays at 10/9c for one month beginning Jan. 19. To make room, The Defenders will then permanently move to Fridays at 8/7c starting Feb. 4, two weeks after the...
With his Southern charm and strapping body, Chase Rice was one of Survivor: Nicaragua's players to watch. The only thing standing in his way? Himself. Although he surrounded himself with manipulative allies like Brenda Lowe and Sash Lenahan, Chase was far from skilled when it came to strategizing and became known for his constant wavering and indecisiveness. One minute he was with Brenda, the next he was voting her out. One minute he picked ...

'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give us more (yes, more) Will Schuester's rapping on Glee. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Lux stop kissing her teacher long enough for the CW to see that Life Unexpected deserves a third season. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Fringe survive its move to Fridays. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, is it too much to ask that to see Meredith Grey in a wedding gown before we depart this mortal coil?
From the outside, this season of Survivor may have seemed just like any other. There were backstabbings, blindsidings, a tearjerker of a family day, and lots of ridiculously skinny people walking around in as little clothing as possible. But for those paying closer attention, Survivor: Nicaragua has been chock-full of big firsts (Jimmy Johnson's strategy) and surprising turns. (Who would have thought the Medallion of Power would actually end up meaning absolutely nothing?) As host Jeff Probst prepares to name the 20th winner in Survivor history on Sunday, we thought it would be a good time to look back at the good, bad, and...
Thanks to her candid nature, surprisingly tough physical presence and resourcefulness (she started a fire with reading glasses), Jane Bright gave Survivor: Nicaragua's older tribe a fighting chance. Those attributes combined with personal tragedy (she lost her husband to cancer in 2009) made her a huge threat to her competition as someone the jury would surely vote for to win the million dollars. However, Jane learned she was a big threat a little too late and was booted from the game in the penultimate episode. The 56-year-old dog trainer spoke with TVGuide.com about why she was so disappointed in Chase Rice, what kept her from aligning with Fabio Birza and why she thinks she wouldn't have the $1,000,000 prize. (Hint: It's a...
