It's finally over...

I doubt anyone is still reading this blog (since there's not much to read), but just for the sake of completeness, here are my finale picks.

Final five boot: Boo

Final four boot: Yau Man (Dreamz wins immunity and breaks his word)

Final three who face the jury: Cassanda, Dreamz, Earl

Rocky votes: Earl
Lisi votes: Earl
Michelle votes: Earl
Edgardo votes: Earl
Mookie votes: Earl
Alex votes: Earl
Stacy votes: Earl
Boo votes: Earl
Yau Man votes: Earl

Earl wins in a unanimous vote.

The editing pointed to an Earl win as far back as episode one when he was shown standing on top of the mountain and calling himself King of Fiji. There have been many other shots of him high above everyone else. If anyone else wins, it'll be shocking.

Edited to add:

This is what I wrote after the first episode in my confessional analysis:

Now let's talk about Earl. You didn't think I was going to forget him, didya? Earl got two amazing confessionals in this episode, either one of which would have me pointing to him as someone who was going to last a long time. Put together and I have to wonder if he wins this thing. His first confessional came near the beginning of the episode. He talked about how the island was their home and you want to check all of it out. It was interspersed with a scene of him on top of the island, smiling, and at one point he says "I'm the King of Fiji... of an unnamed island." Sounds like someone who could win this thing, right? Except it was followed by Dreamz saying "I'm standing the highest" and a shot of the kid standing a rock above Earl (and Rita and Anthony). So is this our endgame? Dreamz vs. Earl?

hey man, thanks for not abandoning this blog. It's pretty evident Earl will win like you said, but 9-0? Well, it'll definitely be a first.

stacy being the wild card of course.

I wonder what his thoughts would be concerning the character of this trio.

what I would like to know if there is a second place winner since no one but earl got the votes?

Matt said...

I'd guess they tied for second place. First time in Survivor history that has happened.

And a 9-0 vote was a first too.

The season ended well - very engaging endgame.

good ending...

but spoilers are LAME

Dan said...

i still think your CAs are quite valuable, and I agree with the above poster that this season was completely spoiled by week 2. You should still do china. Believe it or not you do have a fanbase.

Matt said...

A fanbase? I appreciate you saying so, but I doubt that! :-)

I'll see what I'm feeling like in the fall. Have nice summer!

Matt,
I didn't even realize you had this thing going this season. I'm waning in my survivor love as well. Although I'm still anti-spoiler, and this has been a decent season all around.

In any case here's how I know I'm losing my devotion:

1) I fall asleep while watching the Survivor episode I taped while at school.
2) People are allowed to talk to me during the show.
3) If I miss something someone says, I don't rewind to hear it.
4) I don't watch Survivor Live with Dalton and Jenna.
5) I don't care if someone tells me what happened before I see the episode.
6) I don't have a favorite player.
7) During the finale I actually washed dishes, cleaned the kitchen, put my kids to bed, and taped the last 30 minutes plus the finale to watch later.
8) At the end of every season, I say it's my last.

However, I have to say this new casual viewing experience is quite freeing, and so I might be able to convince myself to watch China.

(This seems it should be its own blog entry.)

I have NEVER watched any type of "reality" TV nor do I watch anything like them, such as these dance shows or The Apprentice. I use my free time more wisely to maintain my status as a productive citizen of the United States, am paid very well for what I do and and a husband and a father of three. I'm in the 95th percentile of net worth NOT including my home for my age group (under 40) and have NEVER received any financial gifts nor any inheritance.

I do NOT have a college degree and do not own any businesses. I just live well below my means and invest for my future. Where will any of you be at retirement? I'll bet money that you'll know all the sports scores, all the multi-millionare players on a first name basis but you'll be broke and begging the government for help. I'll be a multi-millionare and laughing at all the time all of you wasted watching Brittany Spears meltdowns, sports playoff games that seem to take half the season and reality TV shows.

God help our youth - they are being led by really crappy excuses for parents these days. Have you see what they are allowed to get away with these days? The television and MP3 player is the new babysitter. With any luck, they'll figure our how to live their lives with respect sometime before they die or end up on some government subsidy program.

Now back to being a productive member of society! Good luck everyone and God bless all of you...
