  • Episode Description
  • The alliance of Scout, Eliza, Chris and Twila appear to hold strong as they are the final four. The first Immunity Challenge, consisted of Survivor's first every vertical maze. Twila had the lead at first, but Chris won it. When it came time to vote someone out of the group, Eliza was completely shocked to find herself voted out. She had put her complete trust in Chris in thinking they would be the final two, but Chris's stronger alliance between Scout and Twila prevailed. Once the final three were in their last Immunity Challenge, Chris began to wonder if Twila had a secret alliance with Scout. At camp, Chris finds out she did not, and so after winning the second challenge, Chris brought Twila with him to the final two. Once the jury was able to give their questions and comments and vote, Jeff announces the winner live.moreless

    Notes (5)

    • In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Host Jeff Probst rated this season as No. 6 out of the first nine seasons. He said that it was “a great example of how I can never predict how a season will be viewed,” because although he liked the cast of characters, the public didn’t – “we didn’t have the huge characters, so there were no big events from Vanuatu.

    • Chris is the third contestant to win the final immunity challenge and then win the game (Brian from season 5 was the first).

    • Chris becomes the first male to win Survivor since Brian won season 5 (Survivor: Thailand) in 2002.

    • Chris won the first and second immunity. Eliza was voted out of the Final Four, followed by Scout.

    • Chris and Twila were left in the final two and Chris won in front of a live audience in Hollywood with a 5-2 vote.

    Trivia (3)

    • After the season aired, Chris married his fiance on February 13, 2005. Also, Jeff Probst began dating "Vauatu" contestant Julie Berry in 2005 until 2008.

    • Counting John K.'s individual win in episode 3, a record six contestants won individual immunity challenges in this season. Chris won 3, Ami, 2, and Twila, Eliza, Sarge, and John K. each won one. The previous record was five, shared by "Borneo", "Africa", "Marquesas", and "All-Stars".

    • With Scout's ouster, this is the first time that five consecutive females (Leann, Ami, Julie, Eliza, and Scout) have been eliminated during the course of a "Survivor" season.
