Our season-long awards finally go out to recognize... Redemption Island, Boston Rob, and... other things.

Episode 13

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?

Episode 12

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.

Episode 11

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?

Episode 10

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.

Episode 9

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.

Episode 8

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.

Episode 7

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.

Episode 6

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?

Episode 5

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.
Episode 4

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.

Episode 3

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.

Episode 2

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.

Episode 1

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.
