A woman! But you knew that already if you’ve been watching Survivor: One World this season where the women have dominated the game. In fact the entire final five can all sing Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman.” I’m about to reveal who took home the $1 million smackeroonies, so if you don’t want to know, then hit the back button now.
As if you didn’t see it coming, Kim Sprandlin, a bridal shop owner from Texas, is the latest to enter the Richard Hatch fraternity of people who made a million bucks by sitting on a desert island with a bunch of bugs, eating a bunch of coconuts, and screwing a bunch of people over. Kim, who I lovingly called Candice Bergen in my recaps, was a dominating force both physically and socially in the game winning a good number of challenges while orchestrating the ouster of nearly every player after the merge. She beat out Sabrina, a well-liked teacher, and some blonde ghost who didn’t do much for anything.
Kim’s biggest move in the game was convincing the other guys to vote out other men so that she and her alliance of women could run roughshod over everyone with a Y chromosome. Congratulations, Candice, you are the victor of a boring season of Survivor where we saw the ending coming a few months ago. That doesn’t make you any less of a winner.
Stay tuned for a full recap of the last episode here on Monday morning.
