I loved the show last night. I knew that when it came down to it Dreamz wouldn't give Yauman the immunity idol. Why should he? It was a game and he played it very well. I know that Yaw was a favorite of everyone, and he was a great player~ but let's face it, he was outsmarted by Dreamz. It was Dreamz who made it possible for Earl to win! Why not vote off Cassandra....that was a no brainer, no one would win against Yauman.

I agree with you. I knew Dreamz would not give it to Yauman. And because of Dreamz, Earl won Survivor. Wasn't it neat that Earl had never been voted for to go home? Also this was the first time someone had all the votes at the end. Earl had all the juries votes. I had a feeling that was how it was going to turn out. Boy did Earl look different from the show.

I thought it was great that Earl won and got all the votes. I think it was obvious that Cassandra wouldn't get any votes as she couldn't even do any of the challenges. Alot of the contestants looked different from the show, but I think Earl was the biggest difference.

I agree with you about Cassandra.. for the most part she did stink at the challenges but I do give her credit for getting to know people on a more personal level. Don't forget, she did win that one challenge when they were asking questions about the different tribe members.

Dreamz is a low life scum bag. I think Boo hit the nail right on the head. I liked Boo and finding out at the end about his heart just made me like him more. Earl was very smart he played an awesome game. He never really did anything nasty or back stabbed anyone. I think this is the first time ever that someone got ALL the votes. I'm happy for Earl. It was a really good season. Cant wait for the next one!

Have you ever watched Survivor before? Dreamz was playing the game. And he outplayed Yauman, plain and simple. I don't think that you can even say that he is a scum bag for not honoring the deal he made. Yauman only made the deal to keep himself safe, so Dreamz took it. We have to remember, this is a game of starategy. I was very happy that Earl won. He did a great job of staying in the game and not getting any votes.

Sorry, I agree with Rickrock. Dreamz is a low life dirty rat. Come on, he even back stabbed his own 4 horse men by revealing they had the idol. And yes it's a game. A game of cheating and deception. But there is a line and Dreamzz crossed it. And like Boo said, hopefully one day Dreamz can look the devil in the eye and say, no matter how much money you dangle in front of me, my soul is not for sale. But perhaps it's too late.

Congratulations to Earl. I think this is the first time in Survivor history that 3 african americans make it to the final. Although I have to admit, not all three were model citizens for thier race. And good for Earl that for the first time he gets all the votes. Although I have to admit, I'm not surprised by the way tribal council went down. Wow, what a final council. With Rocky, Alex, Boo, Mookie and Lisi all ripping the shreads out of the final three. And Jeff just sitting there watching. It was like going to a fight and waiting for a hockey game to break out! All I have to say about Dreamz, he has to live with himself. Nothing is worse than guilt and the punishment one gives to oneself. Yau man has become of the most respectable men in my eyes. A true, honest man who overcame the odds of the 'old' player. Not to mention he's just pure entertainment at times. A great season of survivor. Can't wait for China.

That tribal counsil was brutal! The jury certainly told the 3 finalists what they felt and some of what they deserved. Yauman is the most respectable player ever on Survivor in my opinion. It was priceless when he made that fake idol! This season started a bit slow and boring, but by the last few episodes it was awesome.

I think Earl is a shining example for his race, he was the only one with any dignity. Earl did the right thing voting yau man out, if he had not he would of handed yau man the million. Earl never betrayed or backstabbed yau man, he let him know it is every man for himself now.

I agree that Earl was did very well. He was not who I was referring to when I mentioned not being model citizens. Earl played a great game. He was honest to his alliance, except for when the chips were down at the end. He stayed true to his words.

Yauman was a good player but come crunch time, Earl outwitted him by hinting to Dreamz about the alternative of having a shot at the million dollars. When Dreamz didn't give up the immunity idol, Earl clearly didn't give Yauman any chance to stay in the game by not voting for Cassandra. Voting for Cassandra would have resulted to a fire making tie breaker and Yauman was a favorite to win even that. Voting out Yauman did damage his integrity but it increased his chances at winning the title and prize. The beauty of the game lies in twists like these.

I don't think voting out Yau decreased Earl integrity. He was put into a situation that he couldn't control. And he knew he would not win if he went up agains Yau and I think Yau realized that too. He did what he had to.

I agree with Nicolec that Earl didn't damage his integrity by voting out Yauman. Earl knew he wouldn't win against Yauman. If Dreamz had given Yauman immunity there would be no way that Earl would have won against Yau.

I don't think you can blame Earl for voting for Yau. Even Yau obviously didn't hold a grudge.. he still gave Earl a vote to win.

I was really disappointed that Dreamz decided not to give Yau Man the necklace... But I wasn't as mad as I thought I would be when I saw Dreamz shed a tear over it. I don't think he was faking either, I think he really felt guilty about lying to Yau like that. Also, later when Lisi tried to make Dreamz seem like an idiot with that 'How many zeroes' question, I got so angry. Maybe Dreamz isn't a well educated person, but that doesn't mean he's a bad guy or some kind of moron. I thought Lisi was a terrible person, not just in the game but just a mean, awful person all around. And I guess I don't blame Earl for voting out Yau, since he was right about nobody being able to win against him.

I think Dreamz was shedding that tear because he felt sorry for himself. He probably realized how tough the jury was going to be on him since he didn't hold up his end of his deal wih Yau. Don't you think if he felt guilty he would of apologized to Yau? I kept waiting for him to apologize to Yau on the live aftershow. Instead, he kept saying he had "no regrets" and "it was only a game". I am in total agreement with you about Lisi. I can't imagine that she is very well educated herself.. or she certainly didn't act like she was. I think everyone saw her true personality on the show and I have to admit.. her personality is quite ugly.

Dreamz did apologize to Yau when he said that he was keeping the idol. He then looked at Yau and said, "I'm sorry." As for Lisi's question regarding how many zeros are in a million, it looked like Lisi thought he answered wrong and he didn't. This to me made Lisi look stupid.

Of the ones left I was glad to have seen Earl win it. I knew when Dreamz won imunity that he would keep it. Otherwise he would have just dropped and let Yauman have it when it was down to the two of them. I think that Yau played an excellent game he just put too much trust in a few of the wrong people, which turned out to be a $1,060,000 mistake. At least he would have had a nice truck out of the whole thing. However, it stands true that the winner of the car is never the sole survivor. As for Cassandra, I couldn't stand her. To just watch her quit and watch so many challenges just made me angry. She did what she had to do to float under the radar and that was hide under the coats of Earl and Yau. I guess do what you have to do...lol. Earl did a great job of playing the game, especially for someone that has never even watched the show...lol. Maybe that was what was wrong with everyone else, they were just over analyzing everyone and everything that their mind got the better of them. Who knows, cant wait until next season.

Yauman did put too much trust in others. It is a shame that Dreamz didn't give the truck back~ it was wrong for him to keep it. It is true that so far in Survivor history whoever has won the car hasn't won the game. I was reminded that Cassandra did win one of the challenges. I think that she just hooked up with the right people for an alliance and made it to the final 3. It would have been smart of Yauman to make a deal with Dreamz to vote off Cassandra and keep him if he gave up the idol. This would have put the 3 men in the final 3 and Yauman would have won.

Cassandra did win the one immunity challenge, of course it required no physical effort to win it. Everything that requried physical work she gave up. That was proof enough to me that she couldn't outlast. I don't believe that she could have made it out there by herself, but of course I could be wrong. Oh well I think the most deserving of the three won and that is what matters. Thanks for marking me best response!

I was disappointed that Yau Man didn't get in the final three. Earl was right, though, he wouldn't have been able to compete with Yau Man and voted for him to leave. I think giving Dreamz the truck was a mistake in a way, unless he really couldn't have used it himself. Then, I would have thought it a nice gift. If Yau Man couldn't win, then I was glad it was Earl.

I was glad that Earl won too, since it wasn't Yauman. Yauman gave the truck as a strategy and Dreamz took it and admitted it was a stradegy on his part too. It was very nice of Yau to give Dreamz the truck.

In a way, Dreamz accepting the truck sealed his fate. If he didn't keep up with the bargain, he would definitely not win the million dollars. If he did keep his bargain, he would have been been voted out. So, in a way, Yau Man was vindicated.

I had a feeling that Dreamz wasn't going to give the idol away. The guy is a total jerk.. I never liked him. It makes me even madder that he tried playing up the whole "I was homeless" card... in an attempt to garner sympathy for himself. I think you give Dreamz too much credit by saying he "outsmarted" Yau-man. I don't believe he had any strategy during the game at all. I think he fully intended to give Yau the immunity when he made the deal with him... and then only later greed set in and he changed his mind. I think what bothered me the most was Dreamz wants everyone to think it was his plan all along to screw Yau over. Dreamz just isn't that smart to come up with a plan like that. I think Dreamz was living in his own dream world if he thought he had any chance in hell of winning that million. I was so happy to see Earl get the money. Did you see when he went up to cast his vote at the final tribal council he was actually laughing? He totally knew Dreamz had handed him the million dollar prize.

I didn't like that Dreamz was playing the homeless card either. Dreamz never had a chance of winning since he kept the idol, but yes, Earl knew that he just handed him the million dollars. I am glad that Earl won.

Earl was a favorite of mine from the start! He was just so laid back, but in control at the same time. After Yau-man was voted out, I thought that Earl would win. During the tribal council, it became apparent that there wasn't a single member of the jury that was going to write down Dreamz or Cassandra's name.

i'm glad that earl's the survivor winner because between them three, earl's probably the most deserving. i'm a big yau-man fan and it's hard to see him go especially because of dreamz. but well oh well, it's now among cassandra, earl and dreamz. back then, i was betting that if it isn't yau-man who would be the survivor winner, then i would turn to my next bet which is dreamz. but some things made me realize that dreamz isn't a good person after all. first is when he told alex that he'd save him and persuade the alliance that they should vote somebody else. then i saw him vote off alex too. then i remember how he outsmarted yau-man. i think that dreamz is the kind of person who would definitely stab you in the back, no offense to all dreamz fans here. anyway, i'm happy with the result. i think that earl was a real person there.

Earl was the true honest person that was left in the final three. I felt bad that Dreamz didn't give Yauman the idol, but I knew he wasn't going to~ if he did, he would be sending himself home. It was a great ending to a slow starting show.
