Managed to watch the show this morning without any spoilers beforehand.
Well....it is what it is.
Going into the start of the 3-hour finale, I sort of figured Woody Allen would
win this season, however having to pick the best of the worst left, Erik seemed
to be the only choice. Imagine how disappointed I was that 5 minutes into the
game he was gone.
Tribal council was highly entertaining for the brutal honesty that was shown
by the judges. It's true -- Sherri had no right even being in the final three and
somehow was just carried there. Not to say that Dawn or Cochran belonged
Dawn came off as a total phony during tribal, smiling through the whole process
while her teammates essentially called her a backstabber.
Seemed to me that, reading the results at the reunion show, Cochran probably
was the unanimous vote from everyone. Jeff didn't bring anyone else's name
into play, so I am assuming everyone voted for him. Really, there was no other
way to go. Out of the final three, like him or not, he deserved to win. After all,
he won several immunity challenges towards the end of the game.
Agree with Dave that the reunion show really didn't concentrate on talking with
everyone. Was the entire cast even there? I didn't notice Francesca, Laura, Matt,
and Shamar. Though nobody wanted to hear from Brandon, I am surprised they
didn't bring him on stage just for entertainment value. Is this the first time that the
entire cast wasn't brought on stage?
Wild to hear that the show actually wrapped a year ago. That's wild to find how
much time is put between filming and reunion.
Looking forward to another season of Survivor as long as they concentrate on
bringing interesting people aboard that aren't there to make stars of themselves
(such as Philip, Brandon, Russell). I also hope that no-one is considering bringing
