In a Survivor first, a single player got all the votes at the final tribal council. Earl Cole won Survivor Fiji, being out Cassandra and Dreamz when all the votes were counted.
Kinda begs the question: Who gets the $100,000 second place? Do they split it? IS there a second place this time around?
I have to say that I’m pretty disappointed that Yao-man didn’t win, and the Dreamz went back on his word. I’m sure that in his own mind, Dreamz justified to himself why he did what he did, but I have to say that was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen on Survivor.
The only way that Dreamz could have made a decision like that was to be completely unaware of how the other people that got voted off felt about what he was doing while he was playing. Had he realized that he wouldn’t have won against either Earl or Yao-man, he probably wouldn’t have gone back at his word. If he had given it away, people might have said he was stupid for doing it, but he would have looked great to everyone else. But he doesn’t have that chance now, no matter what he says. Yao-man, on the other hand, will always been the good guy. He ranks right up there with Rupert when it comes to the fans.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I think Earl played a great game, and he deserved to win between Cassandra and Dreamz. He played it very well.
Next time around, we have Survivor China!
