First off, if you have not seen the finale of Survivor, don’t read this because I will be revealing the final three and the winner!
Okay, if you’re still here, then you’re probably still processing the finale of the 31st season of Survivor. I can’t say that I’m surprised by who won Survivor. Around the time of the merge, I started to get the feeling that Jeremy would ultimately be the winner. Just the way the was being edited seemed to indicate that Jeremy was going to, at the very least. be in the final three. I also figured that Spencer would be there, just because of all the screen time that was devoted to him talking about how this was his second chance. I was a little less sure about whether or not Tasha would be there but I had a feeling she would, just because she wasn’t a big enough threat for anyone to have any reason to go after her.
(Don’t get me wrong, I think that Tasha played a good game and I wouldn’t have minded if she had won. But she was definitely more low key than either Jeremy, Spencer, or Wentworth.)
Once the jury questions started, I got the feeling that Jeremy would not only win but probably win big as well. The fact that nobody asked Tasha was a pretty good indication that nobody was planning on voting for her. As for Spencer, I think he would have been stronger if he hadn’t attempted to threaten Jeremy during the last tribal council. Not only was it unnecessary and (as Savage put it) “arrogant,” but it also revealed that Spencer felt that he could easily sway the jury to vote however he wanted them to. I imagine some members of the jury took that personally.
I was a little surprised that Kimmi voted for Jeremy. I really like Jeremy and I’m glad he won but I thought he went overboard with his anger towards Kimmi. I can understand why he was upset and I imagine a lot of his behavior had to do with being stuck on that beach for 30+ days but, at the same time, the skipping and the taunting was … well, it wasn’t Jeremy at his best. It felt almost as annoying as Ciera and Wentworth’s constant eye rolling.
But, in the end, Kimmi did vote for Jeremy. The entire jury voted for Jeremy and I don’t blame them. It was a good season and I think Jeremy was a good winner.
Before I wrap this up, I do have to take a moment to say how much I loved the night’s first tribal council. Wentworth played her idol. Jeremy played her idol. Not a single vote counted. The revote was a tie. And, in the end, Keith nearly gave up his game for Kimmi. It was Survivor at its best!
I hope everyone enjoyed this season. I certainly did enjoy writing about it and I look forward to writing about the next season of Survivor.
