On the 19th day of exile, the Fang tribe is seen starving with the little left of their food supplies. Some members of the tribe felt hopelessness because of their continuing defeat on the challenges. Yet, Crystal had spilled the little amount of rice that the tribe has when she tripped. Ace even said that she might be the next Lamb to the Slaughter.
The next day featured the Reward Challenge where the tribe must break their opponents ball in a ring to gain points. Kota scored the initial score and quickly had the lead. But the Fang tribe keep up till the third point where Dan made the lead to bring the Kota tribe to winning the challenge. The winning tribe went off in a helicopter to get their reward and the they sent Sugar again to Exile Island. Amongst their rewards was another round of delicious foods and letters from their families at home. While, angst is surrounding the Fang tribe like they have already lose the Immunity Challenge. Matty persuades Ace to vote out Sugar on the next Tribal Council. But it is yet to be seen.
Len is on vacation and Dancing With The Stars had a guest judge last night in the person of Michael Flatley. The contestants performs their best to gain the praise of this guest judge and the remaining resident judges Bruno and Carrie Ann.
The heat started with Maurice and Cheryl dancing the Viennese Waltz to the tune of Gravity. Mr. Flatley commented that they could have done better but overall the dance was beautiful. Carrie Ann told them that they don’t have chemistry and they must work on it. Bruno said that the dance lack fluidity. The judges gave them a score of 21 for the night.
Lance and Lacey came next. The pair practiced in Florida in the same studio where Lance’s band N’Sync practiced when they are still a band.

The Feng tribe once again suffered another night at the Tribal Council. What circumstance had lead them into another loss? Who was eliminated last night? This questions are going to be answered here on our recap of Survivor: Gabon.
On Day 16 of the tribes’ stay on the island of Gabon, the Feng tribe struggled to survive. Ace and Matty decided to have a mini alliance on their midst due to the degradation of their tribe. The Feng tribe is also arguing on the amount of rice that need to be consume by each member because their supply is fast depleting. Ace told Sugar that the other members have gone through her bag and saw the immunity idol and impulsively she gave the idol to Ace, which I think is a huge mistake on her part. At Kota, the tribe’s unity is beginning to crumble cause some of the members commented that Dan is eating too much. Well, let see what will be the consequences of this in days that will follow.
At the Reward Challenge, giving them pastries and coffee to go after the Kota tribe won once against snatching another victory from the helpless Feng tribe. Sugar was sent to exile again by Kota while the Feng tribe go back on the place again empty handed. After the challenge, the members of Kota tribe seem to be arguing again on the allocation of food to each member. Randy decided to distance himself to Dan, because of the latter impression to the others, eating too much.

Carrie Ann told the pair that their are over dancing the routine. They made a score of 22 for their dance last night.
Susan and Tony came out next dancing the Hustle with the song “Upside Down Your Turning Me.” Even though Susan had a fractured bone in her ankle that doesn’t stop her to impress the judges.

They get a 22 score for their effort.

Gossip Girl author Cecily von Ziegesar says producer Josh Schwartz and his crew have been spot-on even though adaptations from page to screen can be quite difficult.
She tells MTV.com, “I’m a very faithful watcher… Generally I’m entertained and I think it’s great.” However, Von Ziegesar does see something unusual for the Gossip Girl TV series, its their depiction of the TV version of Vanessa, played by Jessica Szohr.
“I think Vanessa is one character they ruined,” she says. “In the book, she’s kick-ass and has a shaved head and wears lots of black. I think a lot of the readers who don’t usually read teen fiction identify with Vanessa,” In the show, Vanessa has more of a bohemian hipster look.
The author clarifies that it has nothing to do with Szohr, adding: “I just wish Vanessa was like she is in the books a bit more.”
