It is time to say goodbye to Gabon. It has been a lovely season and it has finally come to a close.
The final five are Susie, Sugar, Kenny, Matty and Bob. Bob has been the one that they want to vote out but every time they want to, Bob goes and wins the immunity challenge. He won 5 straight challenges. So once Bob has won immunity, the vote changes towards Susie. Sugar thinking that Kenny is a bigger threat goes and votes for Kenny and gets the others to as well. So Kenny is voted out. This decision of Sugar’s is going to come back and bite her.
The next morning, Susie knows she is definitely gone unless she wins immunity. Matty goes to get tree mail and after that the final four – Matty, Bob, Susie and Sugar embark upon their Rites of Passage honoring all the previous tribe mates voted out.
They then embark upon their immunity challenge which is making a house of cards as high as possible within 30 minutes. Susie wins this out of nowhere. She won the first individually immunity and she won the last individual immunity.
Matty & sugar decide to vote out Bob now. Sugar though changes her mind later. She can’t decide who to vote out between Matty & Bob. Eventually she forces a tie between them by voting for Matty. The tie-breaker challenge is a fire making challenge. Who can make the largest fire enough to burn a piece of thread.Bob wins this challenge and Matty is voted out.
On the final day, the final three go to check their Tree Mail but their is none. Instead their is a huge breakfast feast for them.
After this they go and set their shelter and watch it burn.
Later that night, the final three go to Tribal Council to meet the seven member jury who is going to decide their fate.
Corrinne lets loose against Susie. Kenny is pretty upset at Bob. Randy is upset at them all.
After all the Jury members speak to the final three it is time to vote.
They then cut to the live viewing of the CBS Hollywood Studio where all the members are sitting. It is for the Survivor Reunion episode. The votes are then read and Susie gets three and Bob gets three votes. Sugar gets none. It all comes down to Randy’s votes. He votes Bob and Bob is the official winner of Survivor Gabon Season 17.
At age 58, Bob becomes the oldest Survivor winner. Tom from Palau, 41 years old when he won, is now the second oldest. Bob is the tenth male to win, while seven females have won the title of sole survivor
Do you think Bob deserved to win Survivor Gabon?
Don’t you think Sugar deserved at least one vote from the Jury members?
Do you think Susie played a perfect game but her not winning many challenges hampered her chances of winning?
