Last night on Survivor Season 29 Episode 9, two reward winners decided to trade what they had won in return for loyalty. Who are we talking about?

More importantly, did that gambit pay off for the players involved?

Outwitting, outplaying and outlasting are the name of the game, and all were paramount on Survivor Season 29 Episode 9 as the home stretch awaits.

Fortunately for Jeremy Collins, he failed to outwit or outlast.

After he and Natalie kindly relinquished their reward feast to Jon and Jaclyn, he was rewarded with this nice gesture by ... being sent to Exile Island. 

After which he was voted out of the game. It's been real!

If you watch Survivor online with any regularity, you know this is not the first time a noble move was repaid in brutal fashion. And it won't be the last.

As genres of entertainment go, reality TV caters to douchebags like no other, which makes the 23 individuals below all the more impressive and loathsome.

Jon Gosselin
Jon Gosselin is one of the most frequent results if you run a Google image search on "reality TV douchebag." True story.

According to the venerable Urban Dictionary, the term "douchebag" is defined as:

  1. An individual who has an over-inflated sense of self worth, compounded by a low level of intelligence, behaving ridiculously with no sense of how moronic he appears.
  2. An individual with a certain combination of obnoxious characteristics related to their attitude, social ineptitude, public behavior, or outward presentation.
  3. A person with a s--tty personality, [usually] a hair-gelling pretty-boy but who can also be a pompous, overzealous or vexatious asshole most people wish were killed in a Mortal Kombat fatality.
  4. Someone who has surpassed the levels of jerk and a--hole, yet not f--ker or motherf--ker.
  5. Justin Bieber.

Yeah. Any or all of the above (sans #5) apply to the individuals we've profiled.

Wednesday on Survivor Season 29 Episode 8, the claws came out when two parents defend their children, which obviously meant things got personal.

Very personal. Meanwhile, the castaways enjoyed a taco bar after exiling one of their own. How did that play out? And what players are still left in the game?

When Survivor Season 29 Episode 8 began, Jon and Jaclyn found themselves trying to pull the strings once again, this time between Jeremy and Josh.

At first, the duo sided with one and then the other, but after Jon was sent away to Exile Island, things changed for this season's surprising king makers.

With Jon gone, and the other men ignoring Jaclyn's influence, she persuaded Jon to switch allegiances yet another time and vote Josh out of the game.

They did exactly that.

On Survivor Season 29 Episode 7, the stage was set for the first individual immunity challenge of the fall, as well as a decision with potentially huge implications.

So how did all of these intertwining events play out on Survivor Season 29 Episode 7, and who got voted out at the end of the night on the hit CBS show?

Well, nobody was technically voted out of Survivor: San Juan del Sur Wednesday. Instead, somebody up and quit just hours before Tribal Council took place.

Did not see that coming? You aren't alone.

Julie was already missing boyfriend John Rocker, who got the boot earlier this fall, and had just been caught by her new tribe hiding trail mix in her bag.

That double whammy told her it was time.

She told Jeff Probst she was done, end of story. If you watch Survivor online, you know this is the third straight season someone has left of their own volition.

Last night on Survivor Season 29 Episode 6, one of the teams made a desperate attempt to procure a bag of rice while a fake immunity idol was "played."

Would it help the player stay in the game?

If you watch Survivor online, you know last week's elimination must have hurt Dale, who had to see his daughter go home. But he vowed not to be next.

Showing Jon a fake immunity idol, he made a bold bluff in hopes of outwitting his way through another week. Would it work? That remained to be seen.

At Hunahpu, Jeff gave the tribe more rice, but in exchange for a lot. Tarp, bedroll, pot, pillows, and all the reward items was his offer. Otherwise no deal.

So desperately, they start from scratch.

When the San Juan Del Sur tribes were realigned on Survivor Season 29 Episode 5, one team member found themselves on the outs in a big way.

Meanwhile, the other team had to negotiate for food.

How did those events play out Wednesday night?

When Jeff Probst ordered the contestants to “drop your buffs” you knew that a tribe switch was a-comin' and where things stood in its wake was this:

  1. Hunahpu Tribe: All singles plus Josh and Reed
  2. Coyopa Tribe: All couples plus Keith

When you first watch Survivor online, you'll see that this appeared to be a strong turn of events for Jon, who was now elevated to a position of power.

Jeremy, meanwhile, experienced the reverse.

On Survivor Season 29 Episode 4, one of the players considers throwing an immunity challenge in the hopes of voting off one of their weakest players.

Did that risky gambit pay off, or did it backfire hardcore?

When Survivor Season 29 Episode 4 began, it didn't shape up like an installment that would prove particularly noteworthy, but things have a way of changing.

In a hurry on this show. But the one old adage rings true:

Don't overthink things, and don't throw the challenge.

The idea is tempting because this is a game in which you must outwit and outlast as well as merely outplay, and gaining the upper hand is hard to do.

One can understand the temptation to go there, but to actually pull the trigger on it is a dangerous maneuver that is almost never worth the risk potential.

On Wednesday night's Survivor Season 29 Episode 3, the first shocker of the young season came in the form of an elimination no one saw coming.

If you haven't seen the events unfold yet, turn back now ...

Still smarting over their loved ones being the first two players voted out this fall, Jeremy and Natalie sought revenge on Survivor Season 29 Episode 3.

The target of their vengeance: John Rocker.

Rocker is a former Major League Baseball star known as much - probably more - for his comments on race and homosexuality than for his athletic abilities.

As such, the angle was clear: Expose him.

After Hunahpu captured its third consecutive immunity challenge, Rocker's infamous identity and history were revealed and all hell broke loose.

With Nadiya voted off the island in last week's premiere, Survivor Season 29 Episode 2 promised plenty of fallout, along with alliances, twists and turns.

First off, Josh explained why he put Baylor’s name down, in an attempt to hide their alliance and knowing she would be safe. She isn't certain she buys it.

Meanwhile, Jon lost the flint, and pleas for forgiveness fell upon deaf ears early in Survivor Season 29 Episode 2. Soon, though, it was challenge time.

Fishing equipment was at stake, and the tribes again had to select someone to compete against their loves in a puzzle course slash balancing act.

John Rocker was selected for Coyopa to compete against girlfriend Julie, who won going away and sent Jeremy off to Exile Island along with her boyfriend.

The tribe tried to engineer a deal with Jeff Probst to trade their beans for another flint, but the best he would offer was a flint instead of the fishing gear.

Suck It Up and Survive.

The title of Survivor Season 29 Episode 1 could basically apply to any installment in this or 28 prior seasons, but darned if we aren't excited all over again.

The setting is San Juan del Sur, with loved ones pitted against each other - Blood vs. Water style - and a solid cast of characters. Chief among them?

John Rocker.

The former, possibly racist Major League Baseball player had a hard time staying anonymous, even though it's been years since he pitched.

Wes Nale, a big Braves fan from Louisiana, figured him out pretty quickly, as did his father Keith, on the other team and later on Exile Island.

Amusingly, Rocker is going by the name of John Wetteland, another relief pitcher from his time in the MLB, and a name even less recognizable.
