Survivor season finale recap episode 14: Who really deserved to win?

Survivor: Second Chance season finale recap “Lie, Cheat and Steal,” Season 31, Episode 14 (original airdate Dec. 16): It was the most unpredictable finale in Survivor history, one where you’d be Ok with a couple of the finalists walking away with the million (as long as it wasn’t Abi). The episode starts with Tasha, Jeremy, Keith, Spencer, Wentworth and Kimmi vying for a spot in the final three. It’s been an amazing season filled with the best mix of talent, class and unusual drama (Terry’s emergency exit, Joe collapsing and Abi just being Abi). Here’s how things went down (note: … Continue reading →

Survivor's Abi-Maria Gomes: I 'Absolutely' Could Have Won the Game

Survivor's Abi-Maria Gomes: I 'Absolutely' Could Have Won the Game
When Survivor airs its finale on Wednesday night, Brazilian spitfire Abi-Maria Gomes won't still be in the game. Voted out on day 35, she barely missed being in the show's final episode. It's a familiar spot for Gomes, who placed fifth on Survivor: Philippines - barely missing the finale of that season. On paper, Gomes seems like a perfect "goat" - a contestant who rubs people the wrong way and is easy to beat at the final tribal council. But for some reason, her tribes get rid of her before the finale. Gomes, 36, tells People why she was voted off -

Survivor recap episode 13: What survivor nearly drowns?

Survivor: Second Chance recap “Villains Have More Fun,” Season 31, Episode 13 (original airdate Dec. 9): It’s day 33 and only seven are left. Jeremy and Spencer voted with the gals last Tribal Council and took out Joe. While Joe warned them of a potentially all-girl alliance (Tasha, Abi, Kelley and Kimmi), they opted to get rid of the person who they thought was their biggest threat, Joe. Now, Spencer and Jeremy are second guessing that move. Abi sees Joe’s departure as “good riddance.” Kelley thinks it evens the playing field, believing they now all have an equal shot at … Continue reading →

Joe Anglim: 'My Blood Was Hot' After Being Voted Off Survivor

Don't feel bad for Joe Anglim.

When Survivor returns on Wednesday night, he'll be noticeably absent during the challenges. The rest of the tribe correctly determined that he was a threat to win the whole game and voted him out on day 31.

But Anglim, 27, will be just fine.

"Joe is athletic," host Jeff Probst told People earlier this season. "Joe is good-looking. Women want to date Joe; men wish they were Joe. He's got a lot of skills that make him good at life, but a threat at Survivor"

Case in point: Anglim competed so hard in an immunity challenge that he passed out.

Stephen Fishbach on His Survivor Elimination: 'I Was Too Sentimental'

Stephen Fishbach on His Survivor Elimination: 'I Was Too Sentimental'
Disclaimer: Stephen Fishbach has been People's resident Survivor blogger for years. He's quite popular around here.

We were excited when he was named as a possible contestant. We were thrilled when he made the final cast of the show. We were ecstatic – and a little bit surprised, if we're being perfectly honest – when he made it through the first tribal council without getting voted off.

As it turned out, Fishbach did better than anyone expected, forming solid alliances and lasting 29 days before being voted out.

Survivor is unpredictable, and Fishbach was eliminated after playing his "steal the vote" advantage? Why?

Survivor's Ciera Eastin: I Was an Underdog

The last time Ciera Eastin played Survivor, she infamously voted off her own mother.

So when Eastin decided to play the game again, she knew she would be targeted early as a threat. After all, if she'll vote for her mom, she'll do just about anything.

But something funny happened on this season – everybody was a threat in some way. As a result, Eastin made it for 26 days despite being on the wrong side of the numbers after the merge.

As she scrambled to stay alive, she begged the other contestants to "just play the game." And they did: Eastin

Who Wins 'Survivor: Second Chance'? Jeremy, Joe, Spencer, Kelley?

"Survivor" Season 31 (yes, can you believe it?) is now airing, and "Survivor: Second Chance" is one of the best competitions CBS has ever aired. Maybe it's the returning players, all "losers" hungry for a win, or the many twists that have only improved the gameplay and have yet to feel like desperate gimmicks. It's rare to have so many players pushing to win, with very different strategies, and we can't wait to see who ends up the sole survivor of "Survivor: Cambodia."

Who will it be?

Well, the edits certainly give us some hints. For example, we could've told you it wouldn't be Kelly Wiglesworth even before she was eliminated in Episode 9, since she had almost no screen time, including confessionals. Spencer Bledsoe is still the confessional king. The producers have him narrating the season, like this is his story and everyone else is a supporting player. Then again,

It's double, double toil and trouble.
