Congratulations are in order to the Final 3 of this past season of Survivor Caramoan Fans vs Favorites!! It was not a shock to me to see these 3 sitting at the end as it was a predictable yet smart move.
Though I love Dawn, John Cochran's unanimous vote also wasn't a shock as I felt Dawn would get a bitter jury. Dawn played a more assertive game this season than the one she played during Survivor South Pacific. Plus she had a lot of really tough trying moments and we got to see a lot of emotion from her. But in the end she was able to bounce back and she definitely owned her game this season. In the end, Dawn showed that she was definitely one to be reckoned with and I am proud of her!
Of the 3, Sherri didn't show me much as I watched this season and I feel that she alienated the jury members in her response to Erik Reichenbach. I tend to think if she had played a more aggressive game then her moves would have been shown. I don't feel like I really got to know her and would loved to have seen more from her. I am thrilled for her though that she made the Final 3 and wish her continuing success!
I am definitely ecstatic over the win of John Cochran!!! He played a flawless game this season in all aspects. He didn't make enemies, he was able to take home 3 personal immunities plus he kept control in his favor when it mattered the most. Definitely a big turnaround from his former season as he showed a sense of confidence and maturity that he seemed to lack his first go round. I was not surprised to see him win it and hope this leads to bigger and better things for him!
Congrats also are in order to another favorite of mine, Malcolm Freberg on winning the Sprint Vote. Again I wasn't surprised as besides Cochran, Malcolm was the buzz this season. I wish him continued success!
Congrats are also in order to new mama, Brenda Lowe!! I am, of course, ecstatic for her and for her family!! I pulled for her this season also, as I loved her on her previous season of Survivor Nicaragua. She showed a lot of heart this season and I completely respect what she brought to the table. I also am happy that she and Dawn will be able to move forward and put things behind them. Survivor is definitely a game where sometimes you have to make the tough and what feels like incredibly brutal decisions in order to move forward. I was sad to see how it hurt Brenda, but at the same time I could see Dawn's (and Cochran's) reasoning. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, and remove the personal part of it out if you want to go forward. I could see both sides though and hope that the friendship continues to heal and thrive.
On a personal note, my favorite moment this season came when Malcolm played the HII at Tribal. It was a pretty fun moment and made for a wild Tribal. I enjoyed watching Philip Sheppard this season. Say what you want about The Specialist, but I definitely find him a lot of fun to watch!
On that note, I hope everyone has enjoyed this past season. I hope everyone has a wonderful summer and wish you all the best of blessings. Thanks for stopping by!
