Utahn Tyson Apostol has played a great game on Survivor: Blood vs. Water (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2). He's been pretty much in control of the game for some time.
But he's not perfect. And he made a major mistake in last week's episode - he played his hidden immunity idol when he had absolutely no reason to use it.
A grand total of nobody voted to oust him, so his ace in the hole went to waste.
This week, the remaining contestants participate in a tug of war. And there's a tie in the voting at the tribal council, leaving the question of who's being ousted from the tribe entirely up to chance.
I have no inside information, but I'm worried about Tyson.
