Wednesday on TV: Utahn Tyson Apostol still navigating troubled 'Survivor' waters

Tyson Apostol is probably the only guy I know who could get injured and make me laugh about it. Laugh with him, that is.

Two episodes ago on Survivor: Blood vs. Water (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), the Utah man injured his shoulder during a challenge. He hasn't had to drop out - he even competed in last week's challenge and helped his tribe win - but it has hampered him.

But he also admitted that he's milking the injury a bit so that he doesn't have to help around camp. He laughed when he admitted that.

It's such a Tyson thing to do. I loved it.

According to CBS, here's what we have to look forward to this week:

One castaway sacrifices their own life in the game for a loved one. Meanwhile, this season of blindsides continues at a wild, unpredictable tribal council.

I'm still rooting for Tyson.
