    I have a strange feeling Denise is going to win. She should have been voted off by now. She's not really on anyone's radar save for Tony.

    I'd like to see Tony win, but that's probably a longshot. Of those on EoE, I hope Jeremy (my pick from the beginning) or Nathalie (she deserves it). But I don't want an EoE winning.

    That was a great final three. I would have been happy with any of them winning. Tony always plays a good game. I was shocked to realize that he never got any votes against him through the entire season. That, along with four immunity wins, makes him the right choice in my mind, even though I didn't go into last night thinking that way.

    Having said that, kudos to Natalie for shaking the game up the way she did. Before Natalie made it back into the game, it looked like the final three of Tony, Sarah and Ben was a lock. In the end only Tony made it to final three thanks to Natalie coming in and basically taking over the game in such a short period of time. Sadly for her, it wasn't enough to change the outcome in her favour. With either final three, I think Tony takes the prize.

    Natalie's only chance was for Sarah to beat out Tony in fire. That might have given Natalie a fighting chance.

    I have to say that for what I thought was just an okay season, it was a great finale. Those three hours just flew by! I didn't even miss the reunion show.

    I hated her and "twinnie" in The Amazing Race, but she was excellent in this game, and we were pulling for her to do well.

    I was glad there was no reunion show - those are usually a big time waste. Almost 3 hours of hard game play was far better viewing, IMHO.

    So glad Tony won. He deserved it most out of the three. All had winning qualifications, but Tony played the best game out of everyone this season. He orchestrated vote-offs, won challenges, made smart alliance with Sarah and Ben, had is spy tree and was more personable than in the past. A perfect season!

    While Nathalie played an extraordinary game on EoE and got herself to the final three, I really don't want an EoE player winning. Those on EoE do not have to do Immunity Challenges and do not have to go through all the everyday game play that comes with the game.

    Ben really screwed himself. Had he listened to Tony and just voted off Denise in the first place, both Ben and Tony would have had idols to play in the next tribal. Michelle would have been voted off and the final four would have been the alliance of Ben, Tony and Sarah plus Nathalie. At least Ben would have had a fighting chance to get to the final three.

    I'd actually already forgotten about that, but you're absolutely right. Neither Ben nor Sarah thought that Natalie had an idol. Tony was the only one who didn't want to take that risk. One more reason why Tony deserved to win. His intuition was bang on.

    Glad Tony won, although Nat definitely made a very good argument. I wouldn't have been upset if she won either. Feels weird not to have a teaser for next season, but here we are I guess.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    I was really hoping they would have targeted Sarah at that moment, so she could have gone home after being super confident Natalie didn't have an idol. It would have been hilarious.

    Agreed with you on the Twinnies. I forgot that she won her first season though (and thus have no idea how she played there) but she played great this time around for sure. I think if Sarah had made it to the final three, Nat would have won.

    And the main problem for me with the reunion show is they cut into the time too much for any substance. Back in the day it was definitely better.

    Agreed. She played well. Still, I do not want a returning player coming in at the end of the game. I would be better with it mid-season, but not so close to the end. I would feel the same if it were an island of my all-time fave Survivor contestants.

    I just had the chance to watch the finale last night. I have no problem with Tony winning, he played a great game and deserved it. I thought the finale was a bit padded and kind of dragged. I know the reunion shows have their flaws, but I still kind of like them. The 3-hour finale just seemed to go on and on until it got towards the end. My other gripe was Natalie finding an immunity idol when she did. Maybe it was all legit, but it just seems convenient that she found one, which is the only way anyone from exile island was going to stay in the game. This whole season has appeared to have way too much producer manipulation. Again, maybe it is all legit and I am just reading into things, but there have been quite a few moments during this season where advantages and idols seem to show up just at the right time for some of these players.

    All that being said, I still enjoyed the season for the most part and will continue watching.
