Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out
After a couple of dazzling weeks of "Survivor' finishes (the idol-that-wasn't, the two-idols-but-play-none gamble), this one was just routine. We've seen the food-or-challenge temptation before, and this time so many took advantage that it seemed less a matter of hunger than meanness and arrogance.

"Survivor" encouraged that with a promo for next week in which not all the players were visible. But that seems too obvious.
