He may have aligned with the wrong people in Abi and Pete, but Artis Silvester was all class in his final words after being voted off of Survivor: Philippines. However, as we found on on the InsideTV Podcast, that does not mean he doesn’t hold a grudge. And that grudge is aimed squarely at Michael Skupin. Artis is not upset about Skupin flipping at last night’s Tribal Council. He just doesn’t like the dude — at all. “He’s not a nice person,” Artis said when he called in to talk to Jessica Shaw and me about his experience on the island. “I despised Mike.” Ouch!
Artis is also not happy with the way he’s been portrayed as a villain on the “evil” alliance with Abi and Pete. Click on the audio player icon below to hear what he has to say about that as well as his reveal on whom he wanted to go to the finals with (you might be surprised), and his not so sunny reunion with fellow juror RC at Ponderosa. (The Survivor discussion and interview starts at 20:40.)
But first, we welcome James Hibberd to the show as he, Jessica, and I reveal our picks for the best returning show of the fall. What dramas and comedies do we feel have not only continued to be strong, but have actually gotten stronger this year. Listen in and see if you agree, and nominate your own picks as well.
