Last week on Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), Utahn Dawn Meehan sort of annoyed me. Through no fault of her own.
When Malcolm Freberg talked to Dawn about strategy, Dawn went and blabbed to Phillip Sheppard, who was the target of that strategy. Dawn is in an alliance with Phillip, so she did the best thing for herself. And "Survivor" is, after all, a game.
But it annoyed me because I've reached the point where I can't stand to see Phillip anymore. He's such a lying, pompous blowhard he's unbearable. This has been a good season of "Survivor," but if he's not gone pretty soon I'm going to have a tough time watching.
I guess if Dawn had to put up with him 24 hours a day for weeks on end, I can deal with him an hour a week.
According to CBS, this is what we can expect in this week's episode: "One castaway learns a secret that will potentially change the game, and chaos ensues when confused castaways are undecided on whether to vote out an easy target or blindside a big threat,"
