J.T. Thomas, Tocantins
Heroism: The Survivor sweetheart won the game unanimously by being a challenge superstar, having an adorable accent and not pissing anyone off (except maybe petulant Stephen).
Outwitticism: Since J.T.’s so quiet and humble, we’ll leave it to Taj to explain why no one ever voted against J.T.: “[His name] just never came up because he was too sweet,” she said. “You just can’t find anything wrong with him.”
