Ep.14: "Seems Like a No-Brainer"
Published: May 20, 2011
Our season-long awards finally go out to recognize... Redemption Island, Boston Rob, and... other things.
Ep.13: "Too Close for Comfort"
Published: May 14, 2011
In which a pitched battle erupts, as two challenges fight for the title of "Lamest Puzzle Ever." Who will win?
Ep.12: "You Mangled My Nets"
Published: May 7, 2011
This week it's all Probst and Boston Rob. Probst and Boston Rob. Maybe a little something for Grant? Whatever.
Ep.11: "A Mystery Package"
Published: April 29, 2011
As the RI backlog builds up and the active players dwindle... sure, we can give an award to Natalie. Why not?
Ep.10: "Rice Wars"
Published: April 23, 2011
Obviously Phillip receives a lot of attention here, but don't count out that wily Jeff Probst.
Ep.9: "The Buddy System"
Published: April 18, 2011
As we speed through some Zapatera departures, Phillip takes an award, but we have to at least acknowledge David's effort.
Ep.8: "The Game Respects Big Moves"
Published: April 8, 2011
The game may. The host certainly does. But the guy running the game won't... not if they're against him, anyway.
Ep.7: "It Don't Take a Smart One"
Published: April 1, 2011
Apparently all it takes for Boston Rob to leap back into screen hogging is to keep mentioning Phillip. Duly noted.
Ep.6: "Their Red-Headed Stepchild"
Published: March 25, 2011
Not even halfway into the season, and one contestant has pretty much run away with the Trolly award already. Guess who?
Ep.5: "We Hate Our Tribe"
Published: March 18, 2011
Not to worry, Redemption Island-ers. By the end of this, everyone will hate both of your tribes.
Ep.4: "Don't You Work for Me?"
Published: March 11, 2011
As one returnee burns his buff (hooray!), another concocts an elaborate idol-hunt camouflaging scheme. Also hooray.
Ep.3: "Keep Hope Alive" (Snuffed is ok, too)
Published: March 4, 2011
If this season is now in danger of peaking too early with this momentous occasion... we're okay with that.
Ep.2: "You Own My Vote"
Published: February 25, 2011
It turns out finding idols without clues is so easy, two people not even named Russell could do it. So much for his dreams.
Ep.1: "You're Looking at the New Leader of Your Tribe"
Published: February 16, 2011
In the season premiere, a new contestant out-Trolls Russell Hantz, and a returnee makes some big moves.
