Episode Summary

The final five are Adam, Ozzy, Yul, Becky and Sundra. At the first Immunity Challenge, Ozzy wins which results in Adam being the first to be voted out. The final four then remember and reflect on the past castaways of the game before going to their second Immunity Challenge. Jeff announces that there will be no final two, instead the jury will vote for a winner out of the final three. Ozzy wins the second Immunity Challenge and at the second Tribal Council, it ends up in a tie between Sundra and Becky. After a long fire making tie-breaker, Becky wins and joins Yul and Ozzy in the final three. The 9 members of the jury then address Becky, Ozzy and Yul and vote for a winner.moreless

  • Ep 14: "The most boring final Tribal Council ever," and Yul takes home the prize

    Yul Kwon 100% deserved the win. There are a few seasons where I 100% can get behind the winner: Tom Westman, Chris Daughtery, and now, Yul Kwon. While I'll admit Ozzy was a worthy competitor and would've won against anybody else, Yul was the strongest player in a strategic sense, and played in a way that made him very few enemies.

    I'll try to keep the summary brief: Basically, Adam is voted off, as we would expect him to be, and Ozzy continues winning challenges, all the way up until the point where he wins Immunity in the final four, and the group is forced to figure out a way to fairly vote someone out.

    As a result, we get a fire-making tie-breaking challenge between Becky and Sundra, which results in one of the most embarrasing showings ever. Sundra and Becky can't make a fire in an hour and a half, and the look on Ozzy and Jeff's face speaks volumes. Becky finally wins, but only after Jeff gives them matches.

    When it comes down to the final three, we're left with Yul, Ozzy and Becky, and during the final Tribal Council, the jury seems to focus solely on Yul and Ozzy. Ozzy dominated physically, but Yul orchestrated the entire game. He wins 5-4, and it easily could've gone the other way.

    The person in the review below me mentioned the comment, but I'll mention it again: when Adam said that "this is the most boring final group to make the final Tribal Council," he wasn't lying. The show is always interesting when you have tension, and when the Aitu 4 made it, even though they fully earned their way to the end, it doesn't always make for entertaining television. A pretty darn good season though. Not sure I like it more than Survivor: Panama, but the cast was solid.moreless
  • A meh finale but a good winner.

    Best part of the finale was the two women completely failing at starting a fire. That was so embarrassing and basically something like summing up their uselessness. I wish Sundra won - she at least surely deserved it. Becky's been a complete tag-along.

    Great to see the narcissistic Ozzy lose. Yul so deserved to win.

    However, Adam summed it up best when he said how boring the Aitu 4 had been. So true.

    The best of the Aitu 4 won, but the season would have been a mile better with Raro dominating.moreless
  • Oh THANK YOU! Finally, we have another GREAT cast! This made me happy.

    Yul dominated strategically and Ozzy dominated physically.

    You have to learn that good ones should win, foolish winners MUST learn that friends are more important than a million dollars. NEVER watch Survivor Thailand and Survivor The Amazon, watch Survivor Cook Islands and Survivor The Australian Outback. Listen to me, castaways set to appear in Survivor China! I want a great cast, no fools. I want fools to be voted out first. And I hope the most popular wins!

    Survivor Cook Islands is an ultimate season since All-Stars.

    Unlike most seasons, the stronger links are winning.

    I spit on every terrible winners.moreless
  • Fantastic Finale!

    Wow! So, Yul won! Congratulations to him. I'm very happy that Ozzy did not win. Ozzy was a great physical player, but I don't think that he had much of a strategic game other than to just do his best to win the challenges.

    Yul deserved to win because he really was the puppet master of the season. He may not have dominated the challenges as many expected him to, but he was able to read his tribemates very well and, with that, he was able to pull everyone's strings.moreless
  • A great ending to the best season I can think of in a long time.

    I thought this season was by far one of the best and had some great switches and swings unlike other seasons where one group marches to the final four or so. The finale was great, though I wasn't that big a fan of having becky be the third potential winner because I thought it was as weak and pointless as it turned out to be. Yule's control of the game and Ozzie's bulldozing of challenges was always entertaining and even the usually dull final council had some decent sparks. All in all I think this is great end to the season, and I hope next season's wave of new additions keeps the drive going.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • This is the third season (joining Outback and Palau), and last to date, where a female contestant has failed to win an individual immunity challenge.

    • Not counting the "food auction" reward (in which every contestant won something), this season featured only two individual Reward Challenges, the fewest ever in a "Survivor" season.

    • This is the second season in which only two contestants (Ozzy and Adam) had individual immunity challenge wins. "Palau" had only two (Tom and Ian) as well.

    • With five wins out of six individual immunity challenges, Ozzy is the most dominant contestant ever in terms of individual immunity challenges. Previously, Tom Westman and Terry Dietz won five of seven in their seasons and Colby Donaldson won five of eight.

    • Yul is the first male "Survivor" winner to win the game without ever winning an individual immunity challenge. He is the third winner overall to do so, joining Tina Wesson ("Australian Outback") and Sandra Diaz-Twine ("Pearl Islands").

    • Ozzy is the first contestant since Kim Johnson (season 3, "Africa") to win both of the last two Immunity Challenges and not win the game.

    • Ozzy joins Kelly Wiglesworth, Colby Donaldson, and Terry Deitz as the only contestants with at least four consecutive individual immunity challenge wins in their season. Colby and Terry are the only ones to win five in a row.

    • For the first time, a contestant (Becky), did not receive a single vote at the final Tribal Council.
