Survivor fans have been watching Boston Rob (Rob Mariano) attempt to secure the title of Sole Survivor for 4 seasons now. He came close to winning in the All-Stars season but ended up placing second to his then-girlfriend and now-wife, Amber Brkich. Now, almost a decade since he began his journey on the show and 127 days playing the game, Boston Rob has finally made his way to the end and secured the title of Survivor Winner 2011!
Rob pled his case to the jury alongside Natalie and Phillip but it seemed unlikely that anyone but Rob would win. While he may have been the best player to grace the game in the last 22 seasons, many felt as though Rob had too many chances to win already and shouldn’t have been given the money when he and Amber already have over a million dollars thanks to CBS.
Regardless of how some of the bitter jury members felt (and many fans at home) it was unarguable that Rob played the best game this season and, thus, was rewarded the title and the money. But, that’s not all.
In addition to the million dollars that Rob won last night – and the million dollars that Amber won on her season – the couple also took home an extra $100,000. Rob was voted as fan favorite this season with 40 percent of the votes. Matt was close behind in second with 36 percent but couldn’t secure enough votes to take home the cash prize.
Now that you know who won Survivor last night, tell me, do you think it’s fair that Rob won the million dollars AND the hundred thousand fan favorite prize?
