Boston Rob Wins Survivor Redemption Island
Boston Rob after four attempts has finally won Survivor. It was his Everest. In a sense it was like taking candy from a baby aka his other tribe mates, as he went into the game knowing the physical and emotional stresses that would unfold, and how the game is played.
Having said that how stupid were his tribe not to put a target on his back, like the other team did to Russell. Once Rob got a foothold into the game he just gave a masterclass on how it should be played.
He made sure his tribe did not talk to the other tribe, and it was cult like how he controlled it, as was the Alpha male.
It was interesting that they showed Rob playing his hidden immunity idol but the editing it to insinuate he had told no one about it. However at the reunion show Natalie and Ashleigh said they knew he had it as he had told them.
During the last episode it did look like he was losing the plot a bit, very tired and rambling, but he pulled it together to ensure he did a strong last tribal council. Natalie floundered, and Special Agent Phillip was far to aggressive when criticised.
Boston Rob won all but one vote, and also the fan favourite, pipping out Matt who spent most of his time on Redemption Island.
One of the surprises of the Rob v Russell series was special agent Phillip. He was a lunatic, or was he just pretending to be for strategic purposes? I don’t think so he was cracker jack. But the most disturbing thing was he has bred. He has a 16 year old son!
Unfortunately Jeff Probst has not updated his blog posts to include the last episode.

Oh and by the way how embarrassing was David’s marriage proposal to that other Survivor Tocantins girl. She was cringing and I bet she really wanted to say no.
