"I really believe that when you identify a threat, you take them out as soon as possible. You don't wait." –Tom Westman, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains

A Humble Appeal

Before I start this week's blog, I want to take a moment for a personal note.

I've been blogging about Survivor strategy since 2009. I've written more than 150 blogs analyzing every boot and blindside from the past 11 seasons. I have been truly touched and humbled that so many of you come back every week to see what I have to say and to share your thoughts in the comments.

CBS is offering me a chance to take what I've learned from writing this blog and apply it to actually playing Survivor. They've launched a Second Chance season. The cast will be determined entirely by fan votes.

If you could take a brief moment to head over to CBS and vote for me, I would be honored and grateful. I'd like to try to win some Fishies, not just award them.

And I will do my best to do my readers proud.

Now let the analysis begin!

"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.
