Colby Donaldson

survivor-allstar-finale

In what some are calling the best season ever of Survivor, 34-year-old bank teller Sandra Diaz-Twine became the first castoff ever to win the show twice when she was awarded the $1 million prize on “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.”

And it wasn’t an easy task. Sandra had to beat out Parvati Shallow and Russell Hantz, who lost his second season in a row. Russell, 37, ended up receiving zero votes, as the jurors determined he played the game too dirty. Russell was however awarded the $100,000 consolation prize yet again. The prize is for being the fan favorite and the winner is determined by viewer votes.

When asked if winning the show twice made her the best player in Survivor history, “It makes me the queen,” replied Sandra. One person who wasn’t too happy with Sandra’s win was disgruntled Russell who believes there’s a flaw in the game, “If [Sandra] can win the game twice.”

Parvati, 27, who placed second, was however a more gracious loser than Russell. Host Jeff Probst also revealed that after 114 days of playing the game over three seasons, she has played it more than anyone else. It was also revealed she’s tied for second for most individual challenge wins. Surprisingly Colby Donaldson still has the record, despite his bad game play this season.

The dumbest move ever award was also awarded last night and the unfortunate winner of that was JT, who was seen earlier this seen handing over his immunity idol to villain Russell.

Going into yesterday’s finale, I was rooting for Sandra and thought she played the best game, but after watching last night, I had a change of heart. I found myself rooting for Parvati, who I now believe played the best game this season and in my opinion is the best player in Survivor history. I believe Sandra had a lot of luck go her way, while Parvati had to win and scheme.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK SANDRA PLAYED THE BEST GAME? IF NOT, WHO DO YOU THINK DID?

Tonight is the long awaited finale of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, and with four villains left standing, it is all but certain a villain will be crowned the $1 million winner during the 2 hour finale.

The favorites to win it all seem to be Parvati Shallow, Sandra Diaz-Twine, and Russell Hantz, as Parvati and Sandra are both past winners. The lone standing Hero Colby Donaldson has a good shot if he makes it to the finale two, however with Colby’s almost non existence game play this season, that seems unlikely.

Russell, who also has a good shot of making the final two, will likely not the $1 million prize. He has simply played too dirty, and will have a hard time getting votes in the end. The finale airs tonight on CBS at 8pm Eastern, followed by the reunion show at 10pm.

Heroes tribe member Rupert Boneham found himself the latest castoff to be eliminated as he chose to align with Russell during the last episode.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Rupert, 46, discusses his choice to align with Russell, why he turned on Sandra and why the Heroes could have won it all.

Excerpts from his interview below –

You couldn’t possibly have been surprised by that vote.
I knew my number was up at the last few tribal councils. The rock in my pocket trick gave me one more day and the villain infighting that resulted in them getting rid of Danielle bought me another. I tried to do it a third time by going to Russell and saying the girls were trying to get him and going to the girls and saying that Russell was at camp planning to vote them [off]. It just didn’t work that time.

Did anyone have a clue that Sandra had an idol?
None. It had been hours since I put that rock in my pocket and no one called me on it, so I figured it was still out there and the clue was too hard. Up until she stood up and played it, I thought I still had a chance at a tie.

Sandra and you were allies in Pearl Islands for awhile. She narced on Russell at the merge and seemed happy to flip yet you guys didn’t utilize that. Then you sold her out again last night? Why?
I was trying to play them against each other that last day. They didn’t show me asking her why she wrote my name down when she said she wanted to get rid of Parvati or Russell. Her answer was always the same — “I have to stick with my villains.” I never knew when to believe or trust her. I knew she was trying to be honest because Sandra’s my buddy but the other heroes wouldn’t listen. Then we tried to get Russell by explaining that the girls would gang up on him given the chance just like they had for the immunity challenge but he wouldn’t listen either.

Did you ever in a million years think the last Hero standing would be Colby?
Oh my gosh, no, because he’s been a wet noodle in this one. If James hadn’t gotten hurt, Colby would have never made it this far. I really like Colby, but he’s the last standing because no one sees him as a threat. He used to be a big threat.

Do villains play Survivor better?
A villain type has an advantage because they’re more willing to compromise their values and do whatever it takes to win. I’m not willing to do that. I have guidelines and boundaries and I like showing that it matters how you play the game. I still say that if the heroes had stood together, it would have been all heroes in the final five. We had the chance to show the game as positive and we each chose on our own not to. Amanda chose to tell Parvati everything, which is why she gave both those idols away. JT chose to go to the evil side and give Russell our idol. Candace chose to flip. A hero could win this game but it takes more than one. You need a team.

James Clement

James Clement saw his luck run out last week, when he was voted off his ‘Heroes’ tribe on Survivor All Stars.  Jame’s alliance turned against him and saved Colby, likely out of concern for his injured knee.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, James talks about being eliminated, how his leg’s doing (he actually tore his ACL), and discusses being called a villain.

Excerpts from the interview below -

You survived your first tribal after hurting your knee, but were sent home despite beating Colby in the challenge and holding your own in the Hero Olympics.
I think they were trying to save me from myself because they knew I wasn’t going to quit and I would have really messed stuff up. They were concerned about my knee so I think they did it for me even though they didn’t want to.

How’s the leg?
I’m going through surgeries now. I tore my ACL meniscus and then I got some sort of infection from bad water and it messed up the knee more. We will find out more when they go in again in five weeks. My kneecap rubs against the bone and scatters cartilage around the area. It doesn’t really hurt but it gets hot. If I put ice on it, I can watch it melt. It’s more annoying. I want to scratch it from the inside.

You’ve played three times. In China, were voted out with two idols in your pocket. In Micronesia and Samoa, you left due to injury. Which elimination burns most?
Definitely the idols. Me not paying attention and getting voted out is the most upsetting. The other two times I was doing my best, but I got hurt and plans didn’t come to fruition. That was out of my control. It’s strange because I’ve gone 32 years without going to the hospital. I work in a graveyard. I build houses. I played football. And I go and get hurt on the beach. Way to go James! You’re supposed to relax on the beach. [The blindside] made me pay attention more and I swore that if I ever came across an idol, I would play it immediately. I wouldn’t hold on to them.

More than once, players asserted that you should have been a villain. Were you on the wrong tribe?
There’s a fine line between heroes and villains. It’s cute that everyone thinks I’m being super-aggressive and obnoxious because I wanted everyone to focus, win and play as a team. Anarchy obviously doesn’t work and I just wanted everyone to make a plan and stick to it. If you think teamwork is the work of the devil, then send me to the villain side. Trying to organize is just crazy talk. That’s absurd.

Who do you want to win?
Amanda deserves it. She plays hard. She’s sweet. She’s been to the end twice. It’d be nice if she makes it this time and actually completes the mission. Poor thing, she’s always a bridesmaid.

Survivor All Star Cast 20

CBS has officially unveiled the 20 former castaways who will be competing on the 20th season of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.

The latest season of Survivor will premier with a special two-hour episode on Thursday, February 11 at 8PM ET on CBS. The castaways will be divided up into two tribes of 10. It will be a Heroes vs Villians theme, with the “Heroes” being “defined by their decisions of integrity,” courage and honor, and the “Villains” having “mastered their skills of deception, manipulation and duplicity,” according to CBS.

The show’s host Jeff Probst also discussed the upcoming season, “This season we’re bringing back some of your favorite past competitors — 10 heroes going up against 10 villains in a knock-down, drag-out brawl.” This season was also filmed in Samoa, the same location as Survivor 19.

Back in the mix is Russell Hantz — a favorite from the Survivor:Samoa. According to reports, season 1 winner Richard Hatch was asked to return for this season. However, he had to apply to leave the country since he is under house arrest. His request was denied by a federal judge in Rhode Island.

The two separate teams are listed below -

Heroes: Amanda, James, Cirie, Tom (Palau), Stephanie, Rupert, Candice, JT, Colby and Sugar.

Villains: Boston Rob, Jerri, Russell, Parvati, Sandra, Coach, Tyson, Danielle, Randy and Courtney.
