Episode Summary

EDIT
Spirits and the Final Four
AIRED:
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

  • Very good albeit predictable finale.

    10
    The finale was interesting - I was expecting Chris to stick tight to Eliza and force a tie because he would be skating on thin ice if Scout or ETwila won final Immunity but that one didn't go the way I expected.



    The rest of the finale was kinda predictable though, with Chris beating the two ladies for Immunity. I didn't think he would take Scout to FTC and that was true. Twila surely had people who didn't like her on the jury and that played to Chris's favour.



    Am I happy with the outcome of this season? Yes I am, although I'd be happier with one of the younger ladies like Ami, Eliza or Julie winning, that's for sure. Nonetheless, Twila was a great character and Chris a great player. Congrats!moreless
  • Only the emotional final tribal council was the saving grace!

    7.6
    In probably my least favorite season next to Thailand, the

    Only saving grace in this season was the emotional tribal

    Council in which it was full of bitter and just very

    Bitter people that really thought Chris would keep and then

    Break his promise. He did look apologetic and remorseful. Though they did find him the lesser of the two evils with Twila!
