A musical note
A reminder if you’re downtown today: WNKU-FM DJ Mr. Rhythm Man (Elder HS art teacher Bob Beemon) plays hits from Cincinnati’s King Records label at the “1000 Tears Too Late” exhibit about Cincinnati’s R&B scene in the ’60s and ’70s at the Contemporary Arts Center 5-9 p.m. today.

With Cindy Hall from Maysville voted out of "Survivor: Guatemala" on Thursday, I was happy to see Danni win the $1 million over Stephenie Sunday night. Yeah, she ditched good pal Rafe at the last second, but Danni's best bet to win it all was going to the finals with Stephenie. It was a very entertaining season, and still the best reality show on TV (No. 7 for the year, despite the loss of about 2 million viewers since May). What did you think?

Survivor best reality show? I beg to differ, I think that goes to Amazing Race. Surivior is cool, but it's more of a popularity contest. The Amazing Race is well a race and you win or lose on you racing skills not by being the most popular.

I watch Survivor because I feel like I'm supposed to... you know I don't want to miss anything and be left out. Speaking of Dani - Wow did she clean up nice!

Back to Amazing Race - I started out not really liking the Linz family (I felt like I was supposed to) but they really grew on me after awhile. They cracked me up the way the guys kept flirting with all the other teams (execpt Florida of course). I'm sure there were times Meg was wondering how/why she got into it...

Survivor is about the only reality show I watch anymore. I was happy to see Danni win (and yes, she and Steph BOTH cleaned up nicely) because strategy is strategy...lying low and only backstabbing Rafe at the end was as much a strategy and playing hard and building up a huge list of angry jurors!

Sounds like the next installment with Exile Island could be interesting.

Will Jeff Probst be back for that one? I read that he was leaving the show but I don't remember exactly when.

Jeff Probst changed his mind and re-upped for another few years of hosting Survivor. Sounds like Guatemala about did him in, but he said if he did quit, he'd want to travel the world and meet interesting why not stay and get paid for doing just that?

After Judd got voted out, I knew Danni had a shot at winning. She could have said anything to the jury and won over Stephenie's "I'm smarter than you and screwed you all at the right time" defense!
