Anyone watching?

I think Des is actually bay56 and the Aladdin thing was a big cover story...

I wish they'd flicked Rohan last night. Would've been a classic survivor bluff.

No matter who wins from here, it's a pretty boring winner for me.

That final immunity challenge does look epic though.

But do you vote off someone who can't be trusted or someone who straight out says that they and the other person will deadset vote you off next and are much more better at the challenges? Probably a moo point as Flick and Elle would've likely gone against Kristy anyway plus Flick is a **** Trollop.

I think it comes down to this:

If you're Kirsty, you know you're banged either way, so you get to decide who you'd rather win- El/Lee or Flick

That's a slam dunk call. **** Flick. She's the worst

I would've been voting 'FLICK' at every opportunity throughout the game for no other reason than being able to write the word **** and having it broadcast it to the entire nation. Lee knows what's up

It was good to finally see Matt and Flick go in the last two nights.

Matt because I just can't stand him. He just got played by the girls the entire way, one would assume he's a virgin.

Flick because she's a and$@!
I did enjoy people referring to her as Flip. Her decision to turn on Brooke all those weeks ago was downright stupid.

I think Kristy did the right thing, gee I hope she wins the last challenge just to make it interesting.

I found it hard to like Flick for most of the season but she actually played the game and made things interesting. Voting Brooke out was savage and is what Survivor is all about.

Lee and El are boring as ****. El firing up at Flick was the best thing she's done all season but too little too late for me.

Kristy is who I want to win out of the remaining but she's been carried most of the way. Credit to her, she's still around, and has definitely created some of her own luck.

Flicks move on Brooke did spark some interest in the game itself, but it was down right stupid for Flick.

Her and Brooke were tight, Sam and Brooke seemed to have something going on but they had the numbers and a good run to final 3, if challenges went her way.

I just feel Flick tried too hard to play the game to the detriment of herself. But she made final 4, so she did well regardless

Either Kirsty is much better at Survivor then we all ever imagined or really really lucky.

I also think she's a little insane!

But well done!!

That was seriously epic.

Great finale to a surprisingly good season. Past Australian Survivors have sucked.

Kristy did deserve that. Somehow.

Great final challenge. Great final tribal.

Great finish! Good job Kristy! Inspiring finish and one of the best final councils ever. I doubt many people went in thinking they were going to write her name.

I am a massive survivor fan.

As a whole Australian survivor sucked great big balls. Honestly the only non numpties on there were nick / flick / brooke. Also Phoebe was pretty good too.

The last episode was good, but still kristy didnt deserve to win, the producers saved her having a non elimination tribal with brooke picking sue to switch teams when kristy was about to be voted off. She was the biggest numpty I have ever seen win survivor, including richard hatch and the numpty old lady who won the american s2 i think in australia and the mexican lady who won off russell handtz' brilliance.

If they do another season they need to pick less numpty / story line people and pick more actually clever people.

Classic papabear.

Sandra (Mexican lady) actually won twice.

Why wouldn't you nominate someone like Ethan who was the biggest non entity to ever win in 33 US seasons?

I agree with your assessment about the Aussie survivors largely being numptys!

And Russell Hantz was deadset robbed!

TBH I vaguely remember his name. But I guess that goes to show how much of a non entity it was.

This season of US survivor has been absolutely magical though, I have switched who I am barracking for so many times, the power has moved so much and there has been so many small mistakes which in this season have been fatal.

Yeah the US season has been brilliant. There's only really one goat (Sunday) and the rest of the top 13 are all playing hard.

The game has changed again. To win now you need to fly under the Radar and make your big move with 5 players to go to flip into final 3.

At this stage I'm thinking Hannah will win.

to be honest your winner pick might be on the money.

For whatever reason, the cop and hannah imo are playing a very similar style of game, despite controlling the last vote, for the most part she has just flowed with numbers... her ability to build relationships has been helped massively by her panic attacks and everyone percieving her to be weak. Which imo, is a bit of luck.

I just cant see Hannah having the "resume" to win.

Who are the best players/biggest threats left? Jay, Dave, Ken and Adam. Agree?

They can't all be voted out before final tribal. One of them wins.

I don't think Ken is a threat. Actually, I don't think he SHOULD be a threat. But I guess he could Bradbury through by being less disliked.

I think Hannah has a chance of beating Dave and Adam, neither are beloved of the jury.

I'd say Hannah has played a better game than all players you've listed also. She's been instrumental in a number of people going without painting a large target on her back.

Being a goat and voting with the numbers, being saved by others multiple times. Can't see how she possibly has played a better can than any of them except for Ken.

I named Ken cus he's the second biggest challenge threat after Jay.

I don't think she's been a goat at all. She flipped on Zeke which led to the David v Zeke team war and ultimately the removal of Zeke. She wanted Sunday gone last week and voila.

That's off the top of my head, I'm sure there are others. I think she was a fairly significant partner in most of Zeke's earlier moves also, but she was getting no credit, hence the flip.

Bit of a stretch to say Zeke's exit had anything to do with Hannah. Will flipping was why he went home.

But whatever, we'll see what the jury thinks soon.

Zeke appeared to have hannah until she jumped off ship.

Tho it is arguable she wouldnt have kept him.
