Stephen Fishbach's Survivor Blog: Drew Escalates His Bad Gameplay

Stephen Fishbach was the runner-up on Survivor: Tocantins and has been blogging about Survivor strategy for PEOPLE since 2009. Follow him on Twitter @stephenfishbach. Erik Reichenbach is a Survivor fan-turned-favorite, a comic book author and artist. He placed fifth on both Survivor: Micronesia and Survivor: Caramoan. Follow him on Twitter @BloodyAmer1can.

"How about you go talk to someone and you form a bond and you establish some trust. That's strategy."
– Mike Chiesl, Survivor: Redemption Island

Drew exhibits all the classic symptoms of the Egotisticus Malus, a common species of Survivor best known for delusional proclamations of grandeur and falling flat on one's face.

Does he dictate strategy to his tribe without listening? Check. Does he think he's awesome, but is actually really lazy? Check. Is he paranoid that the women are out to get him? Check, check and check.

Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.

Last week was definitely an emotional one. Val is amazing because the second the package started playing, I started to get emotional because we don't see our video packages before the show. I knew what I said and I knew what was filmed, but seeing it and hearing it was another thing.

Nashville Blog: Chaley Rose on Zoey's Soon-to-Be Broken Heart

Originally posted 10/09/2014 03:00PM

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode of the ABC hit. This week, Chaley Rose (Zoey Dalton) writes about the third episode and how Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio) is bound to break her character's heart.

Zoey is madly in love with Gunnar (Sam Palladio). She wants to be that girl for him. She doesn't want to replace Scarlett (Clare Bowen), but she wants to have what they had. She also wants what she wants and and that's the dream of singing and making music and making money doing it. She's not willing to let anything stand in her way.

The next episode is definitely looking up for Zoey, which is great, but after that it's definitely going to stop going her way. She just sees the bond Scarlett and Gunnar will always have and senses it will always be a thing between them. It's that songwriting chemistry they have, which kicked off their romance in the first place.

"One of my main objectives in this game was to create interpersonal relationships as soon as possible."
– Shambo, Survivor: Samoa

Is it a good thing that John Rocker was voted off Survivor?

Oh sure, we were all rooting against him. The hotheaded pitcher was a larger-than-life villain, with his history of bigotry and his neolithic machismo. He told Natalie she looked like a man and threatened to punch her. When his girlfriend, Julie, beat him in a duel, he griped that he lost to a girl.

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in Season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show, and will be blogging for PEOPLE about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for Season 19.

We're sad we got eliminated because we were really looking forward to this week's contemporary dance. We were going to dance to a Garth Brooks song. We'd already started choreography and ideas. We were really excited about this dance.

Nashville Blog: Oliver Hudson on Jeff Fordham's Problem with Women

Originally posted 10/02/2014 05:30PM

Every week, a member of the Nashville cast will blog about the latest episode on ABC. This week, Oliver Hudson (Jeff Fordham) weighs in on the second episode and how his character got a dressing down from the head of the label for "hating" female artists and driving down profits.

Jeff seems to be unraveling slowly – it feels like he's verging on a mental breakdown and spiraling out of control. He's alone and shivering in the corner of an apartment by himself!

To be candid, it's fun playing the villain. But once you establish the villain, you want to understand why he is the way he is. Even villains have souls. Why did he become this way? We will explore that a little bit. A few things have been written already to plant a seed on why Jeff may be the way he is. Technically, the show is dealing with 16 characters and there are a crazy number of storylines.
