It was double trouble for the Fans tribe on Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs Favorites last night as they lost two members. Shamar Thomas — who had threatened to quit earlier in the game — was pulled by doctors after scratching his cornea, while Laura Alexander was voted out after the Fans lost their fourth challenge in a row. Jessica Shaw and I spoke to both of them on the newest edition of the InsideTV Podcast to get the inside scoop on what really went down.
Shamar tells us about Jeff Probst’s visit to the beach that we did not see, reveals the other injury that sent him into emergency surgery, while also sharing his feelings on the players —including Sherri — who blasted him on camera. Then, Laura speaks about not being invited to the cool kids table, while identifying her biggest ally on the island, and sharing her background…on the swim team? You will have to hear it to believe it. And to hear it, all you have to do is click on the audio player icon below. (The Survivor chat and interviews start at 24:00.)
But first, we preview the big Bachelor finale. And to do that we bring in the world’s two foremost Bachelor experts: EW’s own Kristen Baldwin, and 83-year-old Nanny from Oklahoma, who is the grandmother of EW’s Breia Brissey. Nanny likes what she sees and sees what she likes when it comes to Sean, but she remains upset about the woman he did not pick to be his soul mate. Listen in as she and Kristen debate the merits of the two remaining “ladies” and, as an extra bonus, hear Nanny go on and on about her Chippendales calendar! It is a must-listen discussion for any Bachelor fan.
