Amanda's my favorite -- I think she's a very skillful player. So of course I'm rooting for her to win, but the odds are that one of the others, whom I don't like very much, will win it.

While I like Denise marginally better than Todd, I definitely think Todd is more deserving of the win. I could live with him winning it, even though I don't like him.

If I were a juror, I couldn't vote Denise for the win, because she simply hasn't done enough in the game. Courtney really hasn't done enough either, and I wouldn't vote for her because she's the most obnoxious of the bunch.

Overall, the season has been pretty weak. I hope the contestants are better next time around.

This season peaked when Jamie tried to play the fake idol at TC...its been very lackluster since, at the time of the game where it normally gets more interesting, this one has gone the other way.

Me too. It's boring this season but I'll take a boring Survivor over anything else. I hate having that feeling that it will be cancelled one day.

Here's my prediction for tonight,

Winner - Amanda

2nd - Todd
3rd - Courtney
4th - Denise

I hope Amanda can win immunity tonight. If Denise somehow gets lucky and wins it, then Amanda will probably get the boot.

I'm happy with the outcome. It was pretty obvious as soon as the jury started with their questions how it was gonna go. I think Amanda made a fatal mistake by taking Todd instead of Denise. She was basically a mini-Todd, so she never stood a chance. I think it's funny that Courtney got 2 votes. Freakin' hilarious! Sure, Todd still seems like a little weasel, but he did play the game from the beginning and was always thinking ahead. He deserved it.

About Denise... What else did she expect? She was so bitter at the last tribal, but seriously, the only person she had to blame was herself. She thought she could ride coattails to the finals and that the jury would have pity on her because she only makes $7/ hour and she has kids. Oh, Boo Fricken Hoo Denise! Boo Fricken Hoo! She was there for sympathy and had no strategy and she got what she deserved.. 4th place. Her "poor me" act just really irks me. But i guess it worked for her a little bit, since Mark Burnett took pity on her at the end.

I love James even more now. I'm so glad he got the $100,000.

Meh...that's how I think this finale went.

I agree that Amanda should have got rid of Todd instead (assuming that Courtney was ok with it, otherwise it would have been a tie between Todd and Denise, and who knows how that would have turned out). But even when she didn't, I still considered her the favorite to win the game. But she just didn't do well in front of the jury. She wasn't concise with her answers, she rambled, she repeated things - she was very nervous it seemed. And then Todd was very confident and straightfoward with his answers, and seemed to win over some of the jury members who hadn't made up their minds at the time. So that really did Amanda in more than anything else.

Courtney receiving two votes was ridiculous, though. Stupid votes.

Next season looks different. Hopefully it will be better than this one.

I have to agree. And his answers were pretty good at tribal.

And also Jeff asked Erik if he's still a virgin. Bad Jeff! But I guess Erik opened himself up for it for announcing to national TV a few shows back that he is a virgin.

I'm disappointed that Amanda didn't win. I thought she'd built the social capital during the game to win her favor on the jury. But her performance before the jury was weak and uncertain.

It was a mistake on both her and Courtney's part to vote off Denise -- I'm convinced that one of them would have won had they kept her and gotten rid of Todd. And it might have been Courtney -- she was more comfortable and confident before the journey than Amanda.

I'll look forward to the next season -- superfans vs. past favorites, that'll be fun to speculate about!

I found out who the returning favourites are for Survivor Micronesia!

I won't spoil it for anyone, but some of the "favourites" for Survivor Micronesia aren't really favourites. Some of them are disliked by fans, but most are well liked. Personally I'm chuffed that there is a few on there that I really like...I'm excited!
