'Kentucky Joe' stays on 'Survivor'

        Another victory for the Kucha tribe on CBS's Survivor: The Australian Outback meant that Rodger Bingham of Crittenden, Ky., (nicknamed Kentucky Joe by tribe mates) will continue on the adventure game show another week.

        Mr. Bingham's Kucha tribe won a trivia contest, forcing the rival Ogakor tribe to vote a member out of the game for the third consecutive episode.

        Sent home was 7-foot Mitchell Olson, 23, a songwriter from Vermillion, S.D. He lost a tiebreaker to chef Keith Famie, 40, of West Bloomfield, Mich., after two deadlocked votes.

        Kucha holds a definite advantage with seven members to five for Ogakor. Kucha also has been the only tribe to catch and eat fish and a pig. The $1 million Survivor winner will be revealed in the final episode on April 26.
