Twenty-four million Americans tuned
in last week to watch the premiere episode
of "Survivor: Africa." As executive pro-
ducer Mark Burnett predicted, "Survivor"
bucked the recent trend of the reality tele-

vision downfall by
for CBS. While it

producing big ratings
:. 77

came second
behind the
"Friends" gang,
analysts believe
the ratings would
have been higher
had it not been for
the Presidential
address that started
at 8 p.m. when
"Survivor" was
slated to debut. Jeff
Even after. just
one episode, Dickerson
alliances and con-
flicts have arisen inr
both tribes. The insider
lone Michigander
Clarence managed to piss off everyone in
his tribe with his can of beans story. The
later two seemed to have formed a bond of

sorts, from collecting polluted water to
verbally attacking the Boran strongman.
Tom, goat farmer extraordinaire, was the
most vocal of the group and openly criti-
cal of how his tribe was performing.
Unless he lays low a bit, he may find him-
self voted off in a few weeks.
Over at Samburu, Brandon has gained
the trust of the young ladies, and the evil
eye of Frank. Linda and young Kim found
out MacGyver-style that the lens of the
telescope could be used to start a fire.
Tribe members are surely likely to remem-
ber that when it comes tribal council time
so look for them to stay for a while.
After a fastidious overlook of the entire
cast, one fundamental component seems
to be missing from the cast ... the token
cute girl. The first time around it was that
delectable pixie Colleen Haskell who
swooned America, then the stunning
Elisabeth Filarski graced the small screen
in "Survivor: Australia" to provide specta-
cle for the young male viewers. Sadly, the
designated "cute girl" seems to have been
omitted from the latest group of survivors.
CBS may see the ratings of the male 18-34
demographic decline as a result.
Immunity this week will be decided at
the Damu Bar (aka Blood Bar). Survivors
will be lining up to take a shot of the sweet
nectar of Kenya, fresh cow blood. Similar
challenges occurred in the first two rendi-
tions of "Survivor" so contestants knew
coming into the show to expect this type
of challenge. Rumor has it the blood is
drawn from a live cow; although produc-
ers urge viewers this Kenyan tradition
does not hurt the animal (here comes
Knowing an "eat disgusting shit" chal-
lenge was due, look for survivors to chug
down the red syrup for their respective
teams. Ethan looks to be the one who will
have the most difficulty drinking the
blood, as he is a self-declared vegen.
Brandon will have no problem drinking
the blood; he swallows anything that
comes into his mouth.
Most of the preview concentrates on
the apparent division in the Samburu
tribe, suggesting they will be the tribe to
drop a member this week. Silas is shown
in a clip recruiting two different alliances,
and one tribe member catches him in the
act. Speculation is the two factions of
Samburu tribe are based on age, with the
young women (including Brandon) form-
ing a pack against Frank, Linda, Carl and
Teresa. The crafty Silas seems to be play-
ing both sides, guaranteeing once the
word of his double team gets out he'll be
in some hot Shaba water.
Last week Diane was voted off as pre-
dicted, making your beloved "Survivor"
columnist one for one. This week every-
thing indicates a Boran victory in the
immunity challenge, forcing Samburu to
drop from eight to seven. Frank seems
like a logical choice as he got a lot of
screen time in the first episode, a good
deal of which was negative. If the
alliances hold up he might be in safe ter-
ritory. The weakest link seems to be
Brandon, as he has yet to prove himself
physically and mentally. The older mem-
bers of Samburu will vote for him at trib-
al council, reverting the gay bartender
population of Kenya back to zero.
