The Survivor Blood Vs Water season wrapped up on Sunday with the unsurprising reveal that Tyson received the winning number of votes. Since then CBS released a batch of photos from behind the scenes of the Survivor finale party.
Looks like the castaways gathered together to watch the last episode backstage as they prepared for the live portion of the event.
Check out their photos below and then see the full set of pics here at CBS.com.
Congratulations to Tyson Apolstol on his Survivor win last night on the Blood Vs Water season finale. His steady hold on the reins of this season kept us expecting his win as inevitable and he proved it right when he took home seven votes to Monica’s one and secured the title of Sole Survivor. Oh, and he got a million dollars for his efforts. Not bad for 39 days on the beach!
This victory marks Tyson’s first win in the series but his third attempt after apperances on Survivor Tocantins and Heroes Vs Villains. It seems if you’re given enough chances and plenty of practice you can win Survivor! I guess that’s part of why I’m so excited for an all new-cast next season on Survivor Cagayan.
The only vote Tyson didn’t earn was Vytas so admitted he was keeping his word on refusing to vote for Tyson if he voted him out in the game. That seemed like a bitter move and I’d bet Vytas knows it. Gervase just never had a shot, but still played well. No surprises though when the game went to Tyson last night. It was a well deserved victory.
During tonight’s season finale event Jeff Probst revealed the Survivor 2014 Cagayan theme to be… Brawn versus Brains versus Beauty. There will be three tribes with players fitting those specific categories. If this theme sounds familiar that’s because Big Brother did a very similar approach back in BB11 where the “Popular” player pulled off the win.
Perhaps the best part of the upcoming season is that there will be no returning players. It’s all new castaways! According to Jeff they’re doing it because they know the fans want new players. No kidding!
Probst says producers try to give viewers “what they want.” Case in point: Next season is a “direct response to the fans,” he teases.
Are you excited for these changes with a fresh season of Survivor heading our way this spring?
Who will win Survivor 2013 Blood Vs Water? We’re set to discover who will be the season’s Sole Survivor when the remaining castaways are whittled down to a final three and sit before the Jury in a battle for their votes. We’ve got a long night before that reveal though.
Tonight’s Survivor will kick off a three-hour event with a two-hour episode followed by a one-hour reunion event. We’ll be here live blogging the whole thing so get that discussion going in the comments section!
The last members of Kasama will watch as either Hayden, Tina, or Laura M wins their way out of Redemption Island and rejoin them in the center ring. We’ve already taken a look at the last Redemption Island challenge and this one will be a definite endurance challenge. From there those five players will face a puzzle-based Immunity Challenge and then on to one heck of a final Immunity Challenge.
Stick with us as we update this post with the latest news, updates, and results throughout tonight’s big finale as we find out who won Survivor!
Tyson, Monica, Gervase, and Ciera arrive back at Kasama’s camp and all is calm. Tyson decides to reveal his Hidden Immunity Idol to Monica and Gervase to gain more trust and confidence. He says he won’t be using it and offers it to Monica as a memento to take with her.
Redemption Island’s Hayden, Tina, and Laura receive notice that they’re heading to the very last RI duel where one of them will get back in the game. Let’s see who can win it!
Each of the three players will balance a ceramic vase on the opposite side of a long board. Last player with their vase in the air will win the competition.
Laura is already wobbling while Tina and Hayden keep their boards calm and steady. After 15 minutes it gets very, very wobbly for Laura but she manages to recover. Then out of nowhere Hayden drops his! He is out. Hayden was just eliminated.
Laura continues to struggle while Tina looks rock steady. Laura begs for Tina to let her have this (are you serious, Laura??) but Tina says no way.
Once Kasama is again whittled down to just four members on tonight’s Survivor season finale they’ll face off for one last Immunity Challenge. In grand finale fashion this looks like a wild Immunity Challenge with a massive set of slides and stations set up throughout the playing field.
It’s hard to tell for sure what the last four castaways will have to do here, but they’ll be up and down those stairs and slides while working to raise their flag first and claim safety at the last round of votes. There are sets of bags at each of the stations throughout the obstacle course so I’d expect them to be collecting puzzle pieces. We’ll just have to see how this all works together.
Check out the pictures below and see if you can figure out what the players will be doing. This should be awesome fun to watch in action!
