The big battle on Survivor: Nicaragua started several weeks ago with 20 contestants divided into two tribes based on age — those 40 and older against those 30 and younger.Â Now, with only nine castaways left in the competition, it won’t be long until we learn who wins the $1 million grand prize.Â CBS has announced the two-hour finale will be held in Hollywood on Sunday, December 19.Â Read on to find out more about the finale!
As always, the jury has already made their votes since filming of the final Tribal Council happened in Nicaragua earlier this summer.Â Those votes for a winner, which have been kept secret from the cast, will be revealed live in front of a studio audience by host Jeff Probst.Â Immediately following the crowning of the Survivor: Nicaragua champion, Probst will host the always-dramatic, live one-hour reunion show.
