Survivor: South Pacific was back last night on CBS, with the much awaited season finale. Despite what you may have thought was going to happen, after after the final five crumbled last week, it was actually Sophie Clarke who won over the jury, while Ozzy Lusth was crowned America’s winner. Read on for more…
Survivor South Pacific came to and end last night as Sophie was able to win over the jury, giving her the one million dollar prize, and title of sole survivor. Sophie ended up in the final three after defeating Ozzy for one last Redemption Island duel, and although Coach and Albert joined her, the jury wasn’t buying anything from Coach or Albert. Both Coach and Sophie played the jury well, but some think it was Sophie’s genuine sorrow and tears that earned the votes, while Coach apparently had more foes than friends on the jury. Despite the fact that Sophie Clarke is not a religious person, Sophie told E! after the show that: “God was on my side this season.”
And then there was Ozzy Lusth, who defeated almost everyone that came to Redemption Island this season, with the exception of Sophie. So it was no wonder that Ozzy won over America, and became America’s winner on the season finale last night. After the show, Ozzy Lusth spoke to E! and told them: “It was fun. I played my heart out. I’m really happy America saw that.” Ozzy went on to reveal that he feels that maybe he lost that last challenge for a reason, as he believes he has “work to do in this world,” and that one million dollars “would have made that difficult.” Ozzy Lusth plans to continue to inspire others – including founding a nonprofit to build skate parks in Mexico.
