Reality check: Keeping up with our 'Survivor'



By John Kiesewetter
The Cincinnati Enquirer

Here's our recap of last week's Survivor: Pearl Islands, and a preview of tonight's show (8 p.m., Channels 12, 7). Lillian Morris, 51, of Deerfield Township remains in the $1-million contest.

Body count: One down, 14 to go, after the Morgan tribe voted out Nicole Delma, 26, for lying to Morris. Drake has eight members; Morgan has seven.

Wisdom of Lillian: Morris on her experience leading Boy Scout Troop 617 in Loveland: "It has given me patience. You can't work with a bunch of children without being patient."

Campfire gossip: "With Lilly, she works hard with the fire and water - but we all can do fire and water," says Morgan teammate Tijuana Bradley.

Scouting report: Morris, the oldest castaway, knows she might not last long: "I don't fit in here with the girls. I don't fit in with the boys."

Odds: Keep your eye on Sandra Diaz-Twine, 29, from Fort Lewis, Wash. BetWWTS.com shut down its Survivor 7 book last week after receiving too many bets from Vancouver, British Columbia, for the same contestant. The CBS.com poll says Rupert Boneham is likely to go next (24 percent), or Morris (18 percent).

Tonight: Continuing the pirate theme, reward challenge winners get to loot the opponent's camp; Boneham goes off on Shawn Cohen for losing fishing gear; and a member of Morris' Morgan tribe wants to go home.
