Hell hath no fury like five women scorned.

At “Survivor: Vanuatu’s” final tribal council Sunday night, Chris was looking a bit like that guy who had to face his ex-girlfriends on NBC’s former reality special, “The One That Got Away.” As the last man standing on an island inhabited by a bevy of women — only on “reality” TV would this not be considered a good thing — Chris lied, manipulated and played the women one by one. Isn’t that just like a man?

Still, the five-woman, two-man jury awarded the 34-year-old highway construction worker $1 million as sole survivor over “Slingblade” Twila, whose son may or may not have forgiven her for swearing on his life and then going back on her word. That million bucks probably would’ve helped to sweeten his disposition. Who says money can’t buy love?

Party-girl sisters Tara (“The Vixen”) and Torie (“The Hottie”) are really doing nothing for the reputation of Catholic school girls. They make the Hilton sisters look tame. (9 p.m. Tuesdays, KTWB)

“America’s Next Top Model”

The girls are asked to put together outfits depicting Tokyo “street style,” and wind up looking like castoffs from a Hole music video, circa mid-1990s. Weepy Ann, who has yet to take a good photo, is finally put out of her misery. And then there were three. (8 p.m. Wednesdays, KSTW)

“Project Runway”

Why am I shopping for clothes at the mall when I could just whip up a couture gown using corn husks and plastic lawn chairs? Oh, because I can’t sew. But the 12 aspiring designers on Heidi Klum‘s new reality show sure can work wonders with $50 at the grocery store. (10 p.m. Wednesdays, Bravo)

“The Apprentice 2”

I don’t think I can stomach three hours of Jen. I mean, do we really need to pre-empt “Joey” for a three-hour “Apprentice” finale? Kelly said it best: “Jen sucks.” ‘Nuff said. You’re hired. (8 p.m. Thursday, KING)

“The Amazing Race 6”

It’s not true that teaching your significant other to drive a stick shift will break up a couple. However, appearing on “The Amazing Race” together will. Fortunately, Rebecca and Adam are already exes, so they can bounce back from typical exchanges like this: Adam: “Do you want me to jump out of the boat?” Rebecca: “That would be awesome.” They’re the new Alison and Donny!

The Abbotts don’t wear shoes as a matter of principle. They’re also against furniture. Dad is prone to spouting cryptic-isms like, “If you think something is something, then it’s very hard to see that something is nothing.” But what’s really disturbing is that the Abbott kids are home-schooled. Dad seems confused that paper clips are not in fact magnetic. So much for the science lesson. (8 p.m. Mondays, KCPQ)

“Big Man on Campus”

It’s like “The Bachelor: College Edition.” From “Bachelor” producer Mike Fleiss comes a new dating series, only instead of roses, the “Big Man on Campus” hands out fraternity-type pins. And instead of hot tubs and romantic dinners, there are toga parties and bikini car washes. Sigh. I miss college. (9 p.m. Wednesdays, KTWB)
