"You've just gotta hope that those true alliances that you thought you had, and that you tried to build at the beginning, help you at the end. But sometimes it just doesn't work out that way." –Russell Hantz, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains

Mike Holloway is a superb Survivor player. He's a challenge beast who will grip a pole until his palms are bloody. He's a strategic wizard who will blow up your tribal council with grandiose idol flourishes that would make Russell Hantz blush. He's a natural charmer, who has built alliances from the ground up.

But, while Mike is great at making friends, he's not so great at keeping them. One by one his allies have abandoned him. When Rodney flipped, it seemed like a hot-headed disagreement over Joaquin. Now Mike has lost everybody.

"You've gotta be careful about being an over-the-top leader, because typically that puts a target on your back right away. I think there's different ways to lead." –Marty Piombo, Survivor: Nicaragua

It's been a rough week for Survivor: Worlds Apart's leading man, Mike Holloway.

Last week, he managed to knock out his biggest threat, Gorgeous Joe. This week, with Joe gone, he found himself to be the new Biggest Threat.

In just a few short days, he fell from leading the majority alliance to being ostracized with the tribe's two other outcasts, Shirin and Jenn.

Blame it on the Rod.

"My whole goal coming into this game was to play the underdog, be underestimated and just kind of slide through, which is what I've done, and it's gotten me this far." –Natalie White, winner of Survivor: Samoa

What do you do on Survivor when nobody seems to like you?

What kind of moves can you make when you're an outcast from your tribe?

Every season it seems to happen to somebody. For whatever reason, the groupthink that sets in with any tribe dynamic leads one person to be unfairly pilloried and excluded.

Eliza on Vanuatu. Erinn in Tocantins. Cochran in South Pacific.

All outcasts. All excluded. All ended up completely flipping the game on its head.

Suzanne Somers's Dancing with the Stars Exit Interview: 'I Had a Very Strong Feeling I Would Be Leaving'

Originally posted 04/15/2015 12:45AM

Actor and best-selling author Suzanne Somers, best known for her role as Chrissy Snow on Three's Company, was paired with pro Tony Dovolani for season 20 of Dancing with the Stars. She blogged for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.

Going into to Disney Night, I did not try to anticipate anything. Every single minute on that show was the best I could possibly do, and, in doing so, I feel very good about my participation. My experience had nothing to do with whether I won or not; it had to do with me breaking out of my comfort zone and being challenged in an arena that is totally alien to me. I am an entertainer who dances rather than a professional dancer, and I love how much I took on and accomplished.

I'm really my own person when it comes to being competitive. I compete with only myself. When they announced I was in jeopardy, it just surprised me since I have been improving every single week that I've been on the show. However, it did not change how I would approach my performance – that was really locked in big-time.

"I'm paying attention to everything that's going around me. I'm like on surveillance. I'm just sitting there, and I'm listening. Because then I know what moves to make." –Pete Yurkowski, Survivor: Philippines

Gorgeous Joe is just too perfect for Survivor.

He out-charmed Vince for Jenn's affections. He wins every challenge, whether it's holding on to a pole, finishing a puzzle or determining who has the most luxurious hair. And he's managed to build a solid alliance with Jenn and Hali that is so devoted to him, they don't even blink when he leaves them for the reward.

Joe can't seem to lose. That's exactly why Joe can't win.

The show asked what was my most memorable year. Relative to my career, it had to be the year I was cast as Chrissy Snow in Three's Company. There's no getting around people (only remembering her for) the character. She's iconic. I realized that last year when I turned on Saturday Night Live and I saw Lady Gaga playing me as Chrissy Snow and Justin Timberlake as Jack Tripper. Very few actors get the opportunity to play such a complete and full character that it is remembered for decades. It was a wonderful moment in my career.

In order to make sense of Chrissy Snow dancing, we almost had to do the skit at the beginning to establish the character and the times. It was a lot of fun.

Wearing the ponytails put me back in that space and time. I found it interesting that the moment the ponytails went in, I morphed back into that character. My body language changed and allowed me to enter a fantasy that Chrissy Snow must've taken dancing lessons and she thought she was Cyd Charisse!
