    This week's episode was maybe my favorite in 39 seasons. I am full on #TeamDevins now.

    Yeah, he was quite entertaining. He's the only one left that deserves to win. Especially considering how stupid the other survivors were at tribal falling for his proclamation he was going to play the idol for Julie. That was never going to happen.

    If they all voted for Julie, it would not have been any worse.

    Even if he played it!

    Two thoughts on the finale (Spoiler alert)

    1. The moment Devens left the game, who won no longer mattered.

    2. With apologies to Parvati Shallow and Amanda Kimmel, Lauren is hands-down the single most drop-dead gorgeous woman to ever play Survivor.

    I’ve watched and mostly loved every season of Survivor since day one and yesterday’s finale by far was the worst ever.

    Worst concept and worst payoff with an underserving winner within the weakest final three ever.

    Ugh.

    At least Devins won the Sia Prize ($100,000):)

    Ridiculous. A player who was away in extinction from the tribe for 32 days comes back for the last three days and wins? And the jury is almost entirely populated with exiles! Look at the vote. Of course they vote for him (But without Devens, there really was no other choice). Totally ridiculous. They need to bury that format forever.

    As said, thank goodness Sia rewarded Devens and saw things correctly (if she can see anything through that wig).

    Hate the exile concept. Wish Devins won. He'll be back.

    Interesting tribal where everyone thought they had an idol. You;d have to be stupid to not realize there were too many idols available.

    We were all Team Devins. He managed to wiggle and worm his way all the way to the end and that's commendable since everyone was so desperate to have him gone.

    I don't know what to think about Chris's win. Having him come back with THAT idol so close to the end almost guaranteed he'd be in the final. But to be fair to him he did pit himself directly against Devin's in fire making and he could have easily gone back. It was a fair and risky move so he has to get props for that.

    I was surprised at how many on they jury didn't talk (or at least who's comments were edited out). I fully expected Rheem (was that her name? The first one out) to be highy vocal and vitriolic because she was so vocal on Redemption, but she just sat there. I've not seen the reunion show yet so perhaps she was different there.

    I LOVED the finale. The tribal where everyone played an idol was excellent. No, Chris didn’t deserve to win but Devins blew it. Chris should’ve been voted off at the first chance, but Devins kept him in the game. I know why he did it, but it was a mistake to let a player stay in the game who had spent a month building relationships with the jury. The game won, and I’m fine with that. If they bring the edge of extinction concept back, nobody will “do a Devins” again. And besides, Devins owed his second chance in the game to edge of extinction anyway. He got beaten by the same concept that gave him a chance to win. He just blew it. The fans should be mad at him, not the game.

    Chalk me up as one who thinks letting castaways who have been voted off back into the game as going against the whole concept of Survivor. And then for that castaway to have been voted off at the beginning of the game, sit around and not have to play the social game or the challenges for weeks, then come back in at the end with an Immunity Idol and win the whole thing—ridiculous. It's a novelty stunt the game doesn't need. When the tribe has spoken and you get voted off you should be gone permanently.
