A Survivor Community
Wednesday 8:00 PM on CBS (Returning March 8, 2017)

In the ultimate Survivor battle to prove who's superior—Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty—the answer was quite surprising! So, was it the aggressive Tony, the ruthless Kass, the underdog Spencer, or the spiritual dark horse Woo who became the sole survivor of Cagayan

After a surprise visit from their family members, the quartet faced another immunity challenge, which Kass shockingly won despite falling far behind. With her spot in the final three assured, Kass set her sights on eliminating Spencer, which she achieved much to her own detriment after Woo won the second immunity challenge and voted her off.

With Woo and Tony comprising the final two, Brawn proved to be the ultimate winner. It seemed like self-professed villain Tony would be unable to sway the jury after alienating most of its members, but after Spencer delivered an impassioned plea praising Tony as a true player of the game while calling Woo a dog that follows orders, the 39-year-old New Jersey cop came out on top with the required five votes.

"It was a game," Tony told Survivor host Jeff Probst at the reunion, where it was revealed that Tony does, in fact, have a wife and child even though some competitors and viewers believed that he was lying in order to win. "I've been getting a lot of hate tweets on social media... I did a lot of dirty stuff on TV. I did a lot of lying, manipulating and backstabbing."

For its upcoming 29th season, Survivor will head to San Juan Del Sur for Blood vs. Water 2


Were you surprised by who won Survivor: Cagayan?

I wasn't surprised by who won per se quite so much as how he won, i.e. Woo's decision. Still, thoroughly deserved. Spy Shack 4ever!

Also, Sarah continuing to be bitter at the reunion was just embarrassing. Move on!

Also also, I was annoyed to see Lindsey there, much like with Colton the time before. There should be a no quitters allowed at the reunion policy from now on.

One of the most entertaining season in terms of the outcasts who played and the exchange in tribal council.

I don't know if I have a soft spot for underdogs that is why i kinda hope a different final 2 or at least a Kass vs Tony Final 2 for a much entertaining jury discussion.

It was one of the BEST season of survivor ever. There were a lot of strategy play and very exciting tribal council. I had no problem with many idols, I just wish more players were looking for it. It again proved this reality show is worthy of being on air for so long.

I did not liked the finale because I feel the winner is not worthy but it does not make the season worse.

Though I would not want my children to watch it until a certain age maybe 13 years old.

A Tony win just proved again that you need to lie, cheat, spy and swear on your dad's grave (and break it) in order to win a million dollars. Not very good values for young children.

Read carefully - That is what I was saying.

For this season, Tony's win just prove you need too especially for the children who are watching the first time.

Through out the season I always thought Woo was playing the best game out of all the castaways. He kept quiet and stayed out of all the nasty rants and arguments between other players. It was a very clever strategy. One that helped Vacepia Towry win Survivor. However I was stunned to see Woo make such a stupid mistake. I was floored that he took Tony to the end. I just don't see how a person as intelligent as Woo would actually think he had a better chance of winning against Tony than Kass (Who everybody in the game despised.). See you at "Blood vs. Water 2". Congratulations to Tony.

Vecepia is NOT a good winner.

If you watched the reunion, Woo did explained why he did it.

I think it is his upbringing being engaged in Tak Kwan do all his life. Some would called him naive but if one has that mindset, old habits die hard.

I was surprised there was no 50 000$ fan favorite prize like there has been in recent seasons, Spencer or Woo would definitely have gotten the votes for that.

I was rooting for Woo because, personally, I see a lot of strategy in playing the quiet follower, especially if it's a conscious decision, which it seems like Woo's game was. He worked to align himself with the leader and he followed along like a good little follower and then, at the very end, made his move. It was brave to take someone who played so well to the finals, and I think he definitely deserves respect for that. I wish he'd won. But I liked Tony throughout this season, so I'm not too disappointed.

It doesn't make sense to align yourself with a leader and then, as your final move, make sure you are up against that same leader. Perhaps a good move for the leader, but not for you. It was too bad he didn't take Kass to the end. At least then the jury would have had to consider a little as to whether he did something useful. But, even then, he would have won just because the jury hated Kass.

What gets me is that the concept of the "best" player is that the person who must first be a liar, must backstab, must be disloyal, must lack integrity and must 24/7 hunt for hidden tree idols. If you don't have those qualities and rely only on social skill, likeability, loyalty and actually winning challenges, you're perceived as the "inferior" player of this game. So, no matter how clean you play the game, if you're sitting by a Tony or a Russell, you will lose, because there will always be one study of the game "Spencer", pimping you out and lecturing to others about being the most hated requires you win. Woo played a decent game and won when he was required too. If not for Woo, Tony wouldn't have been at the final two, but if it was reverse Tony couldn't say the same. I guess what I will say is, if Russell had of been in this finale, he too would've probably won through Spencer's preaching. And to think, I actually was rooting for Spencer. Tony won the million, but I will say at the reunion show he did not look like a happy man. He looked liked a beaten man.

I totally agree with you. I think Spencer changed at least one vote in Jeremiah/Jeremy.

I do not understand how Jaffa, Trish ,Sara and Jeremiah could have voted for Tony. It is not about being bitter. They clearly did not agree with Tony's values.

By voting for Tony, they are all telling the whole world they think it is okay to swear on your dead dad's grave in order to win a million dollars.

I liked Spencer but I really do not think he had the "authority" on what consitute Best Player. I think he feel Woo is not worth of beating him. Because of that pride, he rather Tony win.

Only problem with your ranting is,that Russell didn't win...2x. So there goes that...

I thought it was crap they let Spencer give his little "Vote Tony" sermon, the forum is for the remaining players to plead their case not the jury.

The jury is allowed to say whatever they want. We've had other seasons where a jury member gives a speech or a statement and doesn't ask a question.

Going back to Season 1 Sue Hawk gave a speech that addressed the jury - so it's not a new development or anything. They've always had the option of doing that. Sue made an analogy that Richard Hatch was like a snake, Kelly was like a rat and that the snake should eat the rat (meaning that Richard should win).

Its part of the game. Spencer can say whatever he wants when its his turn to speak. If you have a problem with the sermon, it should be that it was able to sway a jury that up to that point looked like it was was ready to give Woo the million, not that Spencer said it.

I'd have a problem with it if it swayed the jury or not, it's the contestants job to pull in the jury votes not the jury itself. if Tony didn't have the social skills (Which was plainly obvious when he dropped the bombshell that made the jury gasp about his fathers memory being for sale) then he has a soft spot Woo could benefit from which goes out the window when members of the jury start doing the finalists speeches.

I respected Woo for not wanting to take an easy win but while honoring his martial arts codes he completely ignored the code of the game he was currently playing. for someone that didn't make a lot of visible power moves he banked too hard on respect for bringing along the better player and it cost him. shame too cause I really wanted it to be ANYONE but Tony. He played a good game but was just too shady for me to ever root for.

I also have respect for Woo for that move and also,that he abided by life code over game code. Sure in Survivor world he'll be looked at as idiot,chump,etc. ,but that is just one chapter of his life.

I wish Spencer won but if not him then Tony was my next choice.
Excellent season!

I was good with Tony winning. Tony pretty much seemed to be running the game and orchestrating all the big moves so I thought he deserved to win. Tony played a good game and I do think it really was all strategy on his part and wasn't malicious.

I do wonder if they're going to bring back Tasha, Spencer or Kass in a future season.

Nobody. I think Sprint stopped sponsoring it - they didn't do it last season either.

Oh that sucks! I went to bed early and assumed Spencer had won the Sprint money. Dammit Sprint.

I'm amazed they haven't continued it in one form or another, such an easy social media tie-in for the network. My vote would have been for Spencer, too.

I was rooting for Spencer the whole game because he was in the worst tribe possible and he was the underdog the whole game, I do praise him for reaching the final episode, when he was voted out I instantly wanted Tony to win not because he was a good person ,without a doubt he is one of the most evil players to play survivor but at the same time he knew how to play the game he was ruthless but very smart I am so happy that he won and not that "dog" who really was just taking orders the whole time. Woo is the worst he doesn't have any backbone, he was this thing that didn't think for himself and didn't have initiative ( I don't know what he was doing playing survivor in the first place)
