Episode Summary

EDIT
The Final Four: No Regrets
AIRED:
With three days left in Africa, Kim, Ethan, Tom and Lex are all battling it out to win the title of Ultimate Survivor. As tensions boil and animosity grows, Lex begins to plot against his longtime ally Tom, and Ethan looks back on his time in the game. When Kim wins the first Immunity Challenge (trivia about departed contestants), Tom Buchanan is voted off of the island. On the penultimate day, the final three Survivors meet local tribes and then compete in an endurance marathon of a final Immunity Challenge, which ends with Kim winning once again. Placing the only vote at Tribal Council, she expels Lex Van Den Berghe from the competition. Kim and Ethan are the final two, and after reflecting on their time in the competition and dismantling camp, they head to the final Tribal Council, where the Jury of Kelly, Brandon, Frank, Kim P, Teresa, Tom and Lex return to pass judgement. The final two make speeches trying to convince the jury to make them the winner, and each member of the Jury asks questions, before placing their final vote. Jeff Probst then reveals the votes to the nine former members of Moto Maji. With a 5-2 majority of the votes, Ethan Zohn, the professional soccer player, walks away with the $1,000,000 and the worthy title of the winner of SURVIVOR: AFRICA!moreless

    I am glad that Kim choosed Ethan over that jerk

    Lex because even though she would lose to either man

    Ethan was more likable and treated people as fair and nice

    Couldn't stand Kelly at all because she had a stuck-up attiude IMO

    Didn't liked Tom & Lex in Africa but I liked them a bit more in All-Stars that would be coming two years from now at the time!

    • After a 5-2 vote in front of a live audience, Ethan won in the final two against Kim J..

    • Tom was voted off first, then Kim J. voted Lex off as she won immunity twice.

    • This episode was filmed on August 9, 2001.

    • In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Host Jeff Probst rated this season as #7, one of the worst, out of the first nine seasons. Probst said that, "we had some great characters, we had the most epic locale ever, but…it wasn't a fun season." He said that the final two were boring and not good for television, and the fact that there was a very limited amount of water just made it more miserable to watch the season.

    • After the finale was aired, producers discovered that Lex had answered a question correctly in an immunity challenge in which Kim Johnson won immunity. The question asked which of the female survivors did not have any piercings. At the time, Kim was awarded immunity for selecting the right answer, but Lex's answer (different from Kim's) was also valid. As a result, producer, Mark Burnett, compensated Lex and fourth runner-up, Tom Buchanan, with $100,000, figuring that if Lex had been declared the winner of that immunity challenge, the outcome of the game might have been different.
