Survivor: San Juan Del Sur had “Twinnie” bookends. Although Nadiya Anderson was booted first from the competition, her twin sister, Natalie Anderson, went on to claim the $1 million prize and title of sole Survivor. Responsible for a series of risky, big moves, Natalie went into finale night prepared to win. During our one-on-one red carpet interview at the Survivor finale, Natalie said the rest of the castaways can “suck it” before labeling host Jeff Probst as a “dick.” What’s that all about? Plus, she explains why she thinks competing on Survivor is tougher than the Amazing Race. Watch our full interview inside this article!
This season of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur came to a close tonight after crowing a winner. But, what happened when all the contestants were reunited one last time? Love, drama, and blackouts, that’s what!
It’s been such a fun season of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, that it is hard to believe it all ends tonight. Last week, we watched as Jon Misch said goodbye, leaving Natalie, Jaclyn, Missy, Baylor and Keith to battle it out tonight. But, who made it to the final 3 and was crowned the sole survivor? We’ve got the details inside…
According to Jon Misch, it was God that knocked him out of the balancing Immunity challenge in which a gust of wind sealed his fate. His faith is something Jon held true to throughout the competition — but he says a $1 million victory wasn’t in God’s plan for him as he became the latest castaway blindsided on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. During our interview, Jon also revealed how nasty some fans have been and discussed how easy it actually was for him to find his hidden Immunity Idols. Plus, find out when he and Jaclyn plan on getting married inside this interview!
Yes, that headline is 100 percent accurate. Mother Nature hates Jon Misch. In fact, she despises him. Her windy mood knocked him out of the Immunity challenge, which ultimately led to his epic blindside at Tribal Council on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. The Jon and Jaclyn show is finally over! But before his torch was snuffed, Missy Payne lived up to her last name from an ankle injury, which brought in the medical team. Was she able to stay in the game?
Reed Kelly was a gamer. This self-admitted Survivor superfan put up a strong strategic fight for weeks as he worked to dodge the bad side of Tribal Council. Despite his best efforts, Reed couldn’t avoid elimination any longer as his smart strategies were dumbed down by the dominant alliance on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. What a disappointment, too. In our exit interview with Reed, he revealed why he snapped at Baylor after his last Reward challenge, explained how it felt to play the game after his boyfriend was voted off and dished his thoughts on who is the biggest target left in the game.
Alec Christy seemed to have one major goal in mind when he signed up to compete on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur: Doing better than his brother, Drew. That goal he definitely achieved having made it deep into the game and earning a spot on the jury. Now that his time in the game is done, Alec said in our interview that he would have done a few things differently post-merge if he could do it over again. He also explained if he was truly flirting with Jaclyn and explained why he could have won the game if his end-game strategy would have worked out.
We’re down from eight to six castaways after a double dose of drama on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur as back-to-back episodes filled two hours of great reality television. From oozy blood-like effects at the Reward challenge to an awesome second Tribal Council that sent several jaws dropping, this season’s improvement continued. Who was voted off? All the details are inside this full recap!
It has to be a Survivor record. When Wes Nale was voted off Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, he gained 12 pounds in 24 hours by eating everything in sight at post-elimination Ponderosa. It’s a hard number to fathom, but when you’re hungry, who the hell cares, right? I must say, it was a big bummer for me to see Wes get voted off. He was my pick to win, but he was blindsided amid Idol insanity at Tribal Council. During my interview with Wes (delayed due to the Thanksgiving holiday), the firefighter explained how their plan to eliminate Jon fell apart, revealed which two players he says don’t stand a chance at winning and explained how he and his father, Keith, landed a spot on the show together. Enjoy!
Finally! Survivor: San Juan Del Sur has found its groove. After last week’s strong episode where Jeremy was blindsided, this Thanksgiving Eve treat was filling enough to satisfy a hungry appetite more than any turkey and stuffing. From a fantastically fun Immunity challenge to a chaotic Tribal Council, I’m thankful for this great episode! Check out my complete recap to find out who got voted off!
