This is a reality TV puzzle using the full names of participants on CBS-TV's reality shows: Survivor, Big Brother, and The Amazing Race. This is clued by the flavortext "reality" and "eye" (for CBS). The trivia questions all concern sports, politics and entertainment--the essential elements of reality TV.
The first set of trivia questions clues first names. You take the first name of your answer. The first set will also give you the order (i.e., don't reorder them).
The second set clues the last names. You take the last name of these answers and match them up with the first names, retaining the order from the first set. (Several answers, given in bold, are left over when you do this).

"Eliminate" and "ultimate fate" tell you what to do with the names you get: take the nth letter of each name where n is the position each was eliminated. Matching them up and taking letters gives:
or, "USE REMAINING PLAYERS' COMFORT ITEMS". Matching the remaining players and their "comfort items" (what they brought with them or what they said they'd miss most, taken from their CBS bios), you then take letters in the exact same way:
|arMy camouflage paints
|lOcket of Arabian's tail
|naVy wings from grandfather
|totAl bathroom facility
and the answer is REMOVE ALPHA.
