It All Boils Down to This / Reunion Special - (Season Finale) Winners battle it out, but only one will be crowned Sole Survivor and take home the $2 million prize. Also, after living on the Edge of Extinction for a long time, castaways dig deep for a shot to get back in the game. Then, Jeff Probst virtually connects with all 20 players to discuss the highlights of the season.
Wow, Natalie really struggled for that win, despite having three advantages! When she broke down and cried, even I teared up. She worked so hard for it! Hearing the others talk about their seasons and why they came back was emotional, too. Tyson's speech was so sweet.
Jeff's "set" in his garage looks okay, but the sound is terrible. It sounds so tinny/echo-ey.
Wow!! Just wow, Michele was sooooo far behind, and killed that puzzle. Most of them hadn't even done the first section, couldn't even get one ring on, and she did all three. I'm happy for her, coming on strong at the end like this.
That was awesome! No votes counted at all, since Ben and Tony played their idols too! ha! They had to revote, and they voted for Denise. I don't know why they didn't take Sarah out (or force a tie, making them make fire against each other), since she and Tony are so tight.
Natalie found the hidden immunity idol! Tony searched in the dark for it, building a fire out in the woods so he'd have light, and then the sun came up, everyone else was out searching too then. And she found it! I have to say, I can't help but root for her!
All three of these players have good arguments to win, which is what I like. No one rode on coat tails to get there, or played under the radar. They each worked hard. Michele won immunities when she had to, Tony won a bunch and had an alliance that was strong, and Nat powered through EofE and then did what she had to once she was back in. I'm impressed with all of them, and won't be disappointed in who wins, no matter what. I think it will be Tony, but those girls deserve it too!
I know I am in a minority but I just do not like Natalie. Tony I am very meh on too.. I really wanted Sarah to win the fire challenge.. so in this I may be the only one but I want Michelle to win. I am sure Tony will win this, but again I am just meh.
I loved what the jury said. That's got to mean a lot to the final three, to have the respect from all the other winners, and getting a standing ovation. They said all three deserve to be there, and I agree. This is one of my favorite final three, and favorite seasons, ever!
Great 3 hour Finale! I couldn't have been more happy with the whole thing if I had written it myself. Everyone left (& came back) at the order I would have liked, and usually in the way I would have liked. Very suspenseful & interesting. Perfect Final 3. I liked them all & felt each one earned their way there. Couldn't have been a more deserving trio.
Tony was a great winner too. He outwitted, outplayed, and outlasted in every way. I loved his Spy Nest. I think the jury was impressed with it too. I didn't like Ben the whole season & was looking forward to his leaving, but toward the end of this episode, I began to change my opinion of him. He seems to have grown as a person from this in a positive way. He left like a real gentleman. I really like Rob & Amber's relationship. Between each other & their daughters, they are the real winners from the Survivor franchise.
I would have liked to see Sandra again, but I can understand why not. When she left the EOE she left the show & really shouldn't have been there, except as a spectator. The show & Jeff did the best they could with this Finale considering the whole virus thing. It turned out well & was still suspenseful & fun.
There's always another option. You just have to find it.
