Tonight on MasterChef: The last person you’d think gets squeezed out of the top 10 like a spare macaron (look, I finally spelled it correctly, if we’re being all French about it) atop an overstuffed cookie box. Plus: Eva Longoria, the judges in wetsuits, a home cook who has NEVER PREPARED CHICKEN, and a bully ready to rumble. Spoilers ahead! READ FULL STORY

If you’re wondering how last night‘s guest judge Paula Abdul knew 18-year-old animator Fik-Shun, it’s not because she saw him executing the Usher Slide while tiptoeing along a rainbow made out of poems in one of her better dreams (though she probably did). It’s because he tried out for her short-lived CBS reality show Live to Dance!
Check out the clips below of DuShaunt Stegall (his real name) getting three brutal “NO” buzzes at age 16 before landing a spot in So You Think You Can Dance‘s season 10 top 20.

On tonight’s second installment of NBC’s “scripted reality” experiment Siberia, demon-shroom victim Victoria warns solo cave explorer Daniel that all of the fake contestants are about to lose their lives. Ooh, please? When?
This week, military man Jonathan and surfer/”adventure model”/experienced tent dweller Alison are thrust upon the Maldive Islands — specifically, “the worst island on the planet,” where, due to high temps and deadly sea life, “no living species could survive more than a week.”
Lovely! Perfect locale for a reality show about nude Americans. I’m in. READ FULL STORY
Thank God for HD, right? (I don’t care what any of the judges say. These still look amazing.)
It’s all about the final Pressure Test on MasterChef. Last week’s lemon meringue pie did Bimi in, and this week two home chefs had to enter a sweat-streaked macaroon WAR ZONE to fight for their places in summer’s hottest competition of who can
stir up the most sh*t cook random stuff the best. Who would ultimately fall apart easier than his own confection? READ FULL STORY
That is certainly a bold claim, but the opening number from Tuesday’s Top 20 performance show (full recap here) was such a treat. I still can’t type the moniker “Nappytabs” (or walk by Tabitha and Napoleon’s urban dancewear store in North Hollywood) without feeling weird about it, but anyway, the duo choreographed a superbly shot (in seemingly one take! …but not) behind-the-scenes routine, set to the perfect snazzy song — “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Herb Alpert feat. Lani Hall. The judges, SYTYCD All-Stars, and some choreographers make cameos.
It has a very Xanadu/”All Over the World”-esque vibe, which I know is like the opposite of a ringing endorsement, for sane people. But I promise, it’s so good: READ FULL STORY
High wire artist Nik Wallenda successfully traversed the Grand Canyon Sunday night without any type of harness or net, walking roughly 1,400 feet across — while 1,500 feet above — the Little Colorado River. While Discovery’s walk-up was more drawn out than an American Idol results show (the highlight was weather expert Jim Cantore’s straw cowboy hat), the actual walk took 22 minutes and 54 seconds — all of which was excruciating to watch. The wind was stronger than Wallenda expected, but as his father kept reminding him, he’d trained for worse. Nik repeatedly asked the Lord to keep the cable he was walking calm and admitted he was “very tense.” Watch the walk below. READ FULL STORY
In the craziest MasterChef of the season (or two, I guess — Fox is very fond of the double-episode bonanza), two people headed home, Jessie lost a fingertip in a mandolin slicer, and Krissi emerged as a loathsome reality TV super villain for the ages. But first: a hilarious just-shy-of-insulting Sue Sylvester role call! READ FULL STORY
At least one of Mad Men‘s mysteries is finally solved — officially: A press release, touting the new agency name of Sterling, Cooper and Partners, has been released on the Internet, via Facebook. What would Don Draper say?
Dated Oct. 27, 1968 and written by Peggy Olson, the release contains quotes from several of the partners (although none from Pete Campbell! Short end of the stick once again!) “A name can mean a new beginning, a chance to see yourself as you would dream to be, and leave the baggage you’ve accumulated over the years behind,” Don Draper declares, presumably with words Bob Benson will take directly to heart.
