Ultimate Survivor Tribal Council Bracket Winner

64 Tribal Councils, six rounds, one Ultimate Tribal Council! I hope we all had fun coming together to anoint the greatest Tribal Council of all-time. The winner may have been semi-obvious, but it was also deserving.

Winner: Parvati’s Double Idol Play

Heroes vs. Villains, episode 10 “Going Down in Flames”

I’ve wanted to pay homage to one of the greatest moments in the history of the show to cap off this tournament. The problem? Between all the previous rounds, and our 30 from 30 series, we’ve kind of already said everything there is to say about this tribal council. You know how awesome it is; we know how awesome it is; everybody knows how awesome it is. So instead of writing about it, I thought I’d show you how awesome it is. Through the dynamic world of screenshots. Click through the slideshow to take a trip down memory lane.

    I think Amanda was probably the smartest hero to make the merge, but I could probably listen to an argument with J.T. (And honestly, I don’t think Candice is a dummy either)

  • Mike Hirsch

    Yas kween.

  • Purple Rock Emma

    I will not fight you on Courtney being better at Eliza than anything. I think she’s probably even nicer!

    • sharculese

      “I think she’s probably even nicer!”

      Advantage: Eliza

  • Kemper Boyd

    I think the voters made a bad call here. The double idol play is in my opinion the best move in Survivor history and one of the best tv moments but the Erik is a massive dummy tribal council is epic from start to finish!

    • I have to disagree, but you know my reasons why. If not, go back to the final vote to see my reasons.

      • Kemper Boyd

        I mean let’s be honest here, these are 2 of my top 5 so I can’t really complain (although I try). There was no bad winner.

  • sharculese

    Unreported story – this is like a month into the game, how does Jerri’s hair still look that good?

    • I think the curly texture of her hair helps. That’s a big reason why Joe’s hair looks good in his season (unless you are Abi-Maria).

      • sharculese

        I have hair like Jerri’s, only slightly shorter, and after 26 days of humidity and salt water I’m not sure it would have that much body.

        • Then I don’t know. I just know that the top of my hair would be greased down while the bottom of my hair would be wild with crazy curls. Jerri looks like she has a hairbrush or something out there (lucky girl).

  • SpicyMayoJaySimpson

    because no second should be left out

  • Mike Hirsch

    I still cannot fully get past the almost nonsensically arbitrary decisions over who is a “hero” and who is a “villain” for about 80% of the cast.

    • andythesaint

      The brilliance of it is how people immediately started playing into it

      • Mike Hirsch

        Yes, although was that possibility ever in doubt for Rupert?

        Also, Coach a Villain? For shame, producers! Coach is obviously the most heroic Survivor contestant ever, as I’m sure he will regale you.

  • These subtitles killed me, and yes I agree that Courtney is better than Eliza, and here’s an even bigger controversial opinion- I think James Clement and Alec Christy are better jurors than Eliza, too.
