– In this week’s column, Guest Blogger Andy Baker crosses a lot of questions off of his Survivor grocery list: How did Jeff Kent backstab himself? Why should everyone left in the game fear the power of Penner? Who is the merge going to hurt, and who is it going to help? What new alliances should the eleven remaining castaways consider creating? And what the heck is going on with AB’s pre-season pick to win it all, Mike Skupin?! All this and more in the latest Baker’s Dozen!
A small-scale bargain between tribes resulted in all kinds of craziness among tribal dynamics this week.

Even Hurricane Sandy can't stop Eric Curto from telling you what's going on from the latest episode of The Amazing Race.

Eric Curto provides a video blog recapping everything that went down during Episode 4 of The Amazing Race.
This week, Matsing meets its final fate, Kalabaw finds itself jinxed, and fortune smiles upon Tandang. Guest Blogger Sarah Freeman looks at how the individual players handle their good and bad luck this week and puts in her two cents on Pete bromancing Malcolm, the strategy of the Kalabaw women and whether Dana quit or was med-evaced.
– We just had a double elimination, and all Guest Blogger Andy Baker wants to talk about is the merge and the jury. If you want to know what he has to say about pre-merge jurors… if you want to know just how many Survivor commandments were violated this week… and if you want to see him admit just how wrong he was in his pre-season cast assessment, then you can’t miss this Baker’s Dozen!
Jessica Liese takes a long, strong, and hard look at this week's episode, including why this Fast Forward is the best (or worst) in years and how third-world countries tend to show teams' true colors.
Time to stop beating a dead horse. Survivor Philippines has done away with the Blue Tribe. Absorbed into Kalabaw and Tandang, the Matsing Two are separated and stranded behind enemy lines. Guest blogger Glenn Holford tells us how they were able to turn their games around.
Amazing Race blogger Eric Curto is back with a video recap from Episode 3 of the Amazing Race featuring some very inappropriate comments from James and Jaymes aka The Chippendale.
While Matsing are united in adversity, Kalabaw and Tandang are starting to fracture as they wait for their chance to actually play the game. The question of the week is can an individual player profit from sowing chaos so early, or is it better for the tribe as a whole to stay strong until the merge.
Amazing Race blogger Jessica Liese gives us a brief history lesson on the U-turn and evaluates the remaining teams in one of the Race's strongest packs ever.
