Did the Right Castaway Win Survivor?
After 39 days in the Nicaraguan jungle, Survivor's Judson "Fabio" Birza took home the show's $1 million prize on Sunday's finale.
Beating out Matthew "Sash" Lenahan and Chase Rice for top honors, Birza won the first final immunity challenge after Dan Lembo was voted out. Then, after Birza swept the second immunity challenge -- his third straight victory -- and Holly Hoffman's torch was snuffed, victory was his.
With the jury votes shaking out at five for Birza and four for Rice (Sorry, Sash!), the trio's fellow castaways were clearly torn on who to award the million to. Jane Bright took home the Sprint "Player of the Season" award, with a landslide 60 percent of viewer votes.
Host Jeff Probst says Birza was a clear choice to be named sole survivor.
"He doesn't filter much and though at times he is a bit scattered, there is an undeniable charm and it's nice to have him on the list of Survivor winners," Probst told EW.com.
Survivor's next installment, dubbed Redemption Island, premieres February 16 on CBS.
