"Survivor Sal" Needs a New Nickname

Sally Schumann, Survivor: Panama — Exile Island

Sally Schumann tried out for four prior editions of Survivor before earning a spot on CBS' Survivor: Panama — Exile Island (Thursdays at 8pm/ET). Sure enough, her study of the series worked to her advantage. Having outlasted all of the La Mina women and leaving Terry to fend for himself against the six remaining Casayas, Schumann now serves as the second member of the jury that will crown the ultimate champ. TVGuide.com sat down with "Survivor Sal" the day after her elimination to get her take on her 24-day stay. TVGuide.com: What's the reaction been like from your family since your elimination aired?Sally Schumann: Everyone has called or texted to say I did an awesome job and they're all proud of me. I went out of it OK with how I played it. It was really great to watch the show, because I came home with my int read more

Austin Powerless to Elude Survivor Exit

Austin Carty, Survivor: Panama---Exile Island

He played the game with true honesty and integrity, but North Carolinian author Austin Carty found his Survivor: Panama — Exile Island (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET on CBS) tribe mates eager to turn the page after his island stay reached the three week mark. TVGuide.com chatted with Austin — who earned the first seat on this season's jury — the day after his snuffing to find out how he managed to survive Exile Island, his voting strategy for the finale and his reality-star crush. TVGuide.com: What has been the reaction at home to your elimination?Austin Carty: Everyone's incredibly disappointed. The way things started out, people thought I had a chance to win. I thought so, too. TVGuide.com: You recently admitted to throwing a challenge by not performing to your true ability, in order read more

Survivor: Panama — Exile Island...

Shane West, ER

Survivor: Panama — Exile Island Merge time finally arrived, with some mad scrambling, extremely arrogant behavior and highly cheesy lines delivered by Austin. "Marvin Gaye said it best: Let's get it on" and "Bobbing and weaving like Sugar Ray Leonard" were the gems that aired, but I have a feeling he uttered, "It's on like Donkey Kong" at some point, too. Terry unsuccessfully managed the futile task of building numbers but unsurprisingly now holds both tokens of immunity. Bruce painted a pretty impressive flag for the new Gitanos trib read more

Astronaut Blasted Off Survivor

Dan Barry, Survivor: Panama

Retired rocket man Dan Barry spends his days building robots but found himself struggling to put together a much simpler puzzle on last week's Survivor: Panama—Exile Island. As a result, the 52-year-old father of two found himself packing his bags after copping to his poor performance on the immunity challenge, thus diluting La Mina down to three members going into the tribal merge. TVGuide.com spoke with the space man about how his NASA excursions affected his island outlook, who he's rooting for to win Survivor and more. TVGuide.com: How has the reaction been since your elimination aired?Dan Barry: It's been pretty positive. It's a disappointment to go home, but I feel like the things I did in the game were well represented. I'm read more

Survivor: Panama — Exile Island...

Kristin Bell and Kristin Cavallari, Veronica Mars  

Survivor: Panama — Exile IslandAs we head into March Madness and lose Survivor for two weeks, it's time for a little "unseen footage" or what some might call "filler." Since it wasn't even a real episode, I figured we'd see the real show open with all of the contestants, but no such luck. The repeated viewing of Tina crying over her son was just as sad as the first time, and the clips from different episodes truly show how crazy Shane has been. But the new footage was the real reason to tune in. It was hardly surprising that most of the unaired material came out of the fractured and loony Casaya tribe. In fact, once the show got to the point where two tribes were formed, there was only one scene from La Mina — all the rest w read more

Survivor: Panama — Exile Island...

Survivor: Panama — Exile IslandHarmony truly has no place on Survivor. While the La Mina men's club plus Sally were enjoying their mutual-admiration society, Casaya's members were bickering through the night. Of course, the happy tribe was thrown a curve while the crazy tribe enjoyed a feast. Shane was thrilled to finally get a cigarette, and I was just glad that he didn't have to trade all his clothing to get it. A lunatic in shorts is bad enough — a naked one is unacceptable: no more Richard Hatch wannabes, please. I loved Cirie, egging on the girls against Shane and grinning as the bull's-eye moved farther and farther from her back. Who would have thought the woman afraid of leaves could be such a great read more

Survivor's "Bob Dog" Gets Neutered

Bobby Mason, Survivor: Panama

Bobby Mason flew under Casaya's radar for the majority of his five-episode run on CBS' Survivor: Panama—Exile Island (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET), but the Los Angeles native claims that his limited camera time was a purely strategic ploy. When TVGuide.com caught up with the mighty "Bob Dog" after his elimination, he barked about his on-screen portrayal and about what — OK, namely who — really irked him during his island stay. TVGuide.com: What has the reaction been like since your elimination episode aired? Bobby Mason: People were really angry about the way I was treated. No one really saw a lot of the good stuff that I was doing early on in terms of strategizing. All of a sudden, producers break me out as [being] l read more

Survivor: Panama — Exile Island...

Survivor: Panama — Exile IslandOK CBS, what is going on with the opening credits? One week we see all 16 contestants, the next week all we get is some rushed nature footage and no intros. I guess with a tribe like Casaya trying out every kind of crazy known to man, there's just less time for credits. Bobby fell victim to the old Survivor trap of too much booze. Don't feel too bad Bob-dawg, even mighty Tom Westman got trashed in Palau. Overall, it really was a stupid move to down the last of the group reward between just two people. Casaya might have run out of wine, but that crew will never, ever have a shortage of whine. I have to say, Tribe Crazy is making this season one of the best. Over at La Mina we have Tom version 2.0 acting like Supe read more

Survivor: Panama — Exile Island...

Survivor: Panama — Exile IslandFirst of all, I'm not shocked that Terry, of all people, managed to find the immunity idol. The question now is will he have to use it, and if so, when? That man is following the Tom Westman playbook perfectly so far, with both Austin and Dan playing the part of Ian, the loyal-till-the-end pal. It must've hurt La Mina to lose both challenges while tribe "Casargue" won, even though the immunity challenge was thisclose. Ah, Casaya, I have to say I'm enjoying their bickering, and it seems to me that Aras is riding the old "align with the most annoying person in the tribe" strategy, just like Thailand's Brian did with Clay and the aforementioned Tom did with Katie. Even though Danielle loved getting the towels and three "b read more

Premise: The 12th edition of the reality series strands 16 people on various Panamanian islands to vie for the $1-million grand prize. At least one castaway per episode is banished to a separate island to live alone. While that isn't desirable, it does offer one advantage: on `Exile Island' there is a hidden immunity idol that, if found, can save a person from being voted out at tribal council. Players include a retired astronaut (Dan Barry), an author (Austin Carty) and a singer (Melinda Hyder).
