Anyone watching the finale of ‘Survivor‘ Philippines, after 12 years and 25 seasons, is clearly a die-hard fan. This season had its twists and turns as well as hero’s and villains, which is what keeps it thrilling. Well, most fans may have felt my disappointment when Malcolm Freberg lost the last challenge; crushing his dreams of making it to the final three. He was quickly booted out in a surprise move by his early alliance.
After 39 miserable days, the last three to duke it out were “Facts of Life” television star Lisa Welchel, 41-year-old sex therapist, Denise Stapley, and returning player Michael Skupin. Although Skupin, won the final challenge it was not enough to win the jury votes.
In the end, the toughest female and most deserving of the title “Soul Survivor“, Denise Stapley, ran away with the $1 million dollars. Despite breaking a “Survivor” record by going to every tribal council throughout the show, she found support from the jury. Most votes went her way and she earned every one of them. She was a hard competitor and it was clear it was a slam dunk against Lisa and Michael...what were they thinking?
While I loved the hit show “Facts of Life” growing up, it was a bit of a downer that Lisa beat out Malcolm for fan favorite prize. She walked away with the $100,000, by a close margin of less than 1% of the votes. It looks like Malcolm may need to go back to his bartending gig, but we should see him again in an upcoming show…it’s obvious that his journey is far from over.
As Denise said, she can do a lot with all that cash in Iowa…so good for her!
On another note; was it just me or did the kiss contestant Sarah Dawson planted on Jeff Probst lips seem creepy. When she was voted off she kissed his cheek but tonight she went in for some tongue. At least he covered his tracks by saying his wife kisses better!
Do you have what it takes to be on Survivor?
