Historic ending crowns controversial victor — Survivor’ finale

Most Survivor fans think Chris had no reason even getting to the finale, much less the most votes to win. Do I agree? Well, I'm torn. This didn't become an issue until the plan to blindside Kelley Wentworth came into play, as Rick Devens approached him (and him alone) with the plan, telling Chris not to tell Wardog.

However, he faced criticism from others for being voted out on Day 8, even if he did play within the rules. And I hate to say it, but I do think there are stereotypes in Survivor, and when a woman plays a very aggressive game...it's not looked upon highly.

Underwood - who said his wife was in tears in the audience when host Jeff Probst named him the victor - is already working with a financial advisor. He spent the rest of the time on the Edge of Extinction. They only time they got to find anything was for someone still in the game. Lauren is then voted out and becomes a member of the jury.

Chris wanted to play an honest game, keeping faithful to his allies in Rick Devens and Wardog. The victor of the Edge of Extinction competition was always going to have that advantage. But after biding his time on Extinction Island (and befriending his future jury members), Chris won a challenge to get back in the game on day 35.

Arriving at the Final Three with Gavin and Julie as his competitors, it seemed as though Chris' underdog story could not be thwarted. But then Gavin never had a single vote cast against him. We won two immunity challenges and had a great social game. At this point, I'm just erasing Julie from the equation.

She admitted that she played an unconventional game.

Of course, this resulted in Wardog keeping faithful to Kelley, telling her Chris' plan as they both chose to flip the vote against Chris.

I thought I would actually gain some clarity as I wrote this, but I'm even more confused now. But there's another part of me that isn't upset that Chris won. They are furious. But these are also the same people were furious that Rick Devens won his way back into the game and was poised to win the entire season had Chris not stepped in. Of course not. He may not have been playing the modern Survivor game, being someone who was voted out, but he was a provider for others and found himself closely aligned with the power players as they arrived on the Edge. So maybe they should accept Chris as the better victor for that reason alone? I had to take really, really big swings, and the swings that I was taking, I knew I had to either hit a home run, or I was going to strike out. This outcome just gives them a better excuse for being disappointed. I do think that being a mom does put it on another level when you're out there...so I was very emotional, but at the same time, I think I saw nearly every other person out there cry. So bask in it. Rick and David managed to slink away from the blame, voting out Chris and essentially getting away with treason in a powerful Manu alliance.
