It’s time for the season finale of Survivor.
It comes to no surprise how the end of this season played. By this statement, I mean that there was no doubt about who would make it into the final three.
Denise never had a chance. Because of her sob story, she set herself up for a fall. She marked herself for eviction. Denise had only won one reward challenge. She had never won immunity. In the end, she said that she stayed with her alliance and tried to go for immunity. If she would have gone with PG, she would have made it into the final three. Most probably, she would have lost against PG.
I thought that this season of Survivor was good. Once again, it wasn’t as good as the all-star edition, but it was still good. I’m suprised that no one took out Todd before. Maybe they thought that he wouldn’t do well with the jury.
In the past, juries have acknowledged that lying and backstabbing is part of the game. I just got annoyed by Amanda stupid looking stares, trying to influence people with them. In the end, it didn’t really help. Of the three, I think that the most deserving player got the money. However, I would have liked other people to be in it. It doesn’t matter since the next season of Survivor will start in February 2008 and will pit Survivor fans against Survivor favorites. I think that James will be playing.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
