"I'm not sure what possessed the eel to beach itself like that, but maybe it's a member of the 'Fans' tribe on Eelvivor..."

"... and is therefore prone to such stupid and ultimately self-defeating moves." Hahaha. Sara M — who actually worked on "Survivor" — is guest-recapping the show this week at Television Without Pity. She's got a great recapping style and inside info on the show. (Jeff Probst is not "a smarmy talking airhead.... He, like, runs that show." The show is "surprisingly un-manufactured" and "What you see is pretty much what happened," so that eel was not thrown on the beach by the producers.)

It's the eel that makes a banana peel slippery.

Slippery as an eel.

That is its contribution to comedy.

I like eel. Smoked in my favorite sushi joint. I also remember my father preparing it in various ways. It has to be an Italian/Japanese thing.

As to Survivor; no thanks.
