All in all, a nice wrap-up for a roller coaster season .. not the best in Survivor history, but I'd say up there in the top 3 ..
Dawn removing her teeth and Brenda coming up with that idea was priceless ..
It was a solid ride ...
Top 3 of all time, out of 22(?) seasons? That is high praise! It was a pretty good season all in all,but too much rift raft made it too the end. Cochran had a good game and was able to run roughshot but in calling the shots and in many challenges, because it was a rag tag crew down the stretch. Dawn, Eric, Eddie, and Sherri as the other 4. Any one of them would've been one of the weakest winners all of time.
Sherri came across a fool, she got nervous because even she didn't believe what she was starting to say about why she deserved to win. Hard to convince others when deep down you don't believe it either.
Dawn is generally unlikeable (a few posters earlier said she was so likeable and a real threat to win votes, ha) but came across ok in the finale since she was the victim to Brenda's bullying which was unnecessary and uncomfortable, even to the jury. It made for good enough TV and we need a screen capture of Dawn, not just missing her bottom grill but also the scary looking face she was making. Brenda did come across as little for not letting it drop. And yes, her blindside of Andrea was great but when it happens to her....
How many unanimous winners have their been? I remember Earl Cole over Dreamz and some gal, who else.
I haven't watched the reunion show but they really should've had Ozzy in the crowd, to comment about Cochran's game/improvement and if he was a worthy player.
