Survivor 31 Second Chance Finale Live Blog

Tonight is the season finale of Survivor: Second Chance! Tonight the jury will vote for a winner before the live reunion show. Read a live recap and post your thoughts on the three hour event here!

Jeremy, Keith, Kimmi, Spencer, Tasha, and Wentworth are the Final 6. Three of them will make it to the Final Tribal Council to plead their case to the jury. Who will the jury vote the winner of the season? Let’s find out!

After Jeff introduces the episode from the live studio, we see a quick recap of the season. A Jeff voice-over then discusses the Final 6. He says Jeremy has it all, Tasha has had up and downs, and Keith has won multiple challenges while being on the outside. He says Wentworth has been playing with a “go big or go home” attitude, Kimmi has been a part of several blindsides and in the majority. Lastly, he says Spencer has been on the bottom early on, but is now winning immunity challenges and working on his social game. Will he continue to evolve or will he go back to the jury? Jeff says it has been an unpredictable season, and that it’s anyone’s game.

The night after tribal council, Keith says Abi should be who everyone should be wanting to be sitting with at the end of the game. He doesn’t agree with her being voted out. Spencer says Keith saying that is why Abi is gone. He didn’t say he wanted Spencer with him – he wanted Abi. Kimmi says in her confessional that she’s in a perfect spot to make things happen for herself. She wants to create a fake plan to split votes on the people who didn’t vote out Abi, but she really wants to vote out Jeremy or Spencer. Kimmi doesn’t want to go to the end with Spencer, Jeremy, and Tasha.

It’s time for the immunity challenge. They must race to collect puzzle steps to put on a staircase. They can only carry one step at a time while building this giant staircase. Afterwards, they must race up the staircase and solve a slide puzzle. The first person to solve the slide puzzle will win immunity. Spencer is in the lead, with Wentworth and Jeremy behind. However, Spencer keeps his lead and is the first to start on the puzzle. Wentworth and Jeremy are the next two to start on the puzzle, followed by Keith. Tasha is the fifth to start working on the puzzle, and Kimmi finally joins them later. Everyone is working on the puzzle at the same time, and it’s apparently close between Spencer and Wentworth. Nonetheless, Spencer is the first to solve the puzzle. Spencer wins immunity! This is his third individual immunity win of the season.

After the challenge and they return to camp, everyone congratulates Spencer on winning. Tasha wants Keith or Wentworth gone, so she’s glad her ally Spencer won immunity. However, Kimmi is putting her plan to blindside Jeremy into action. She tells Keith the two of them and Wentworth will vote out Jeremy while telling Jeremy, Spencer, and Tasha to split the votes against Keith and Wentworth. However, Spencer and Tasha figure out what she’s doing. Spencer noticed Wentworth joining that conversation too. Spencer and Tasha tell Jeremy what is happening. Spencer says they cannot split the votes. However, Jeremy doesn’t believe Kimmi is planning anything against him. Spencer wants to make the right call so they decide who makes it to the Final 3. He wants to be in the majority alliance at Final 5.

It’s time for tribal council. Jeremy says there are no more voting blocs; now it’s alliances. Wentworth says she and Keith are on the outs. Tasha doesn’t believe it is that way. Kimmi says she believes it is either Keith or Wentworth tonight. Spencer says they will not be splitting votes, and Kimmi was excluded from this plan. Kimmi is threatened to vote a certain way or draw rocks. Spencer say they are going to rocks if need be. Kimmi says she’s not in the Final 3 if she goes along with Spencer’s plan, but then Spencer, Jeremy, and Tasha say Kimmi will be fine if she votes with them.

It’s time to vote. Wentworth plays her hidden immunity idol! Afterwards, Jeremy plays his hidden immunity idol too!

Jeff reads the votes. The first vote is for…

No votes are valid. They are allowed to have a discussion before voting again. “Who voted for me?” Jeremy asks angrily. Spencer says it was obviously Wentworth, Kimmi, and Keith. “So disappointed in you!” Jeremy says to Kimmi as she goes to cast her vote again. They vote again.

Tied votes again. They are allowed to revote again, but no one does. They are deadlocked. If they cannot come up with a unanimous decision, then Tasha and Kimmi suddenly become safe. And since Spencer, Wentworth, and Jeremy already have immunity, that means Keith will go home by default. Keith volunteers to quit, but Wentworth stops him from quitting. She changes her vote, so Kimmi is voted out and the eighth member of the jury.

After tribal council, they are all reeling from how crazy tribal was. Keith and Wentworth know they are on the outs.

It’s time for the next immunity challenge. They all must race through an obstacle course with six stations to retrieve bags of puzzle pieces. They will then use the pieces to solve a puzzle. The first person to solve the puzzle will win immunity. The challenge begins and Jeremy takes the lead after retrieving his fourth bag, but everyone else is close behind. Keith and Wentworth are right behind him, Tasha is not too far, but Spencer is in last. However, Wentworth soon takes the lead and is the first to work on the puzzle. Jeremy and Keith are the next to start on the puzzle. Spencer passes Tasha and is the fourth to start the puzzle. Tasha joins them afterwards and everyone is working on the puzzle at the same time. Wentworth stays in the lead while solving the puzzle, and Keith is right behind her. It’s a showdown between Wentworth and Keith, but Wentworth solves it first. Wentworth wins immunity!

After the immunity challenge, Spencer is disappointed Wentworth won. He says he, Tasha, and Jeremy must stay strong and vote out Keith. Wentworth begins work on making a fake hidden immunity idol to save Keith and vote out either Jeremy or Spencer. She gives the fake hidden immunity idol to Keith and she hopes it will cause someone to flip due to paranoia. Jeremy is worried, so he quietly tells Keith to vote out Spencer. Keith tells this to Wentworth, and he is on board. However, he believes Jeremy could be lying to him, but he’s glad he at least seems to have options.

It’s time for tribal council. Jeff asks if Keith and Wentworth are on the outs, and they say they are. There is talk of hidden immunity idols, and Spencer says Keith and Wentworth will decide who leaves if they do have a hidden immunity idol. Keith feigns having a hidden immunity idol by looking down at his bag a lot and saying there may be tricks coming. Jeremy notices this and looks worried. Will he flip?

Keith is voted out and the ninth member of the jury.

It’s time for the final immunity challenge. With one hand tied behind their backs, they must catch a ball and put it back into the contraption that spirals the ball around. As the challenge continues, they will have to add another ball. If they drop the ball, they will be eliminated from the competition. The last one standing will win immunity. The challenge begins, and everyone is still in the challenge by the time they have three balls in the contraptions. Wentworth is the first to be eliminated from the challenge with four balls in the contraption. She’s followed by Tasha. It’s now a showdown between Spencer and Jeremy. They now have five balls in, and Spencer drops one. Jeremy wins immunity! Jeremy breaks down in tears. He’s elated that he has made it to the Final 3. Wentworth has broken down in tears too, but it’s for the complete opposite reason. She believes she needed this immunity the most since Jeremy, Spencer, and Tasha are a tight trio. She’s disappointed in herself. After Jeremy gets the necklace, we hear him say in a confessional that he wants to make the right decision. He doesn’t want second place – he wants to win.

After the immunity challenge, Jeremy is contemplating what to do. He knows he made a Final 3 deal with Spencer and Tasha, but he says all bets are off now that he has won immunity. Spencer and Tasha realize this too and that Jeremy could side with Wentworth. Spencer hopes the relationship he has built with Jeremy will take him to the Final 3. Spencer talks to Wentworth and tells her he believes he has a good chance to win, but not with Wentworth at Final 3. Wentworth now wants to take this information and try to persuade Jeremy to vote out Spencer. Jeremy asks Wentworth if she is willing to go to a fire making challenge if it’s a tie vote. She says she is willing to do so. Jeremy is torn between Spencer and Wentworth; he believes both are strong competitors, so he is considering letting them battle it out in a tie-breaker challenge.

It’s time for tribal council. There’s talk of the immunity challenge, and how it was an emotional moment for all of them. It was euphoria for Jeremy, but devastation for Wentworth, Spencer, and Tasha. There is talk of the vote, and Wentworth says Spencer will win. Spencer says it’s the pot calling the kettle black. He says Wentworth has played the best game (underdog who played hidden immunity idols) and will win. He also says that if he is voted out, he will put all his energy to make sure Wentworth wins. He continually reiterates that Wentworth will win and Jeremy will make a terrible game move if he votes him out and keeps Wentworth.

Wentworth is voted out and the final member of the jury.

The next morning, the Final 3 are presented with a mirror and a scale to see how different they look and how much weight they have lost. All three of them reflect on making it to the end, and Tasha is crying as she’s proud of herself for reaching the Final 3. In his confessional, Spencer says that he has made personal connections with people, which he was unable to do the first time. He says he was on the bottom, but his connections with others have gotten him to the top. He says tonight is the most important night of his life. Jeremy is also emotional in his confessional while he talks about making it to the end. He feels confident that he can win the million dollars.

It’s time for Final Tribal Council.

Savage asks the first question. He says his vote is open and he wants the Final 3 to be heartfelt in their answers. He calls Spencer arrogant in the way he threatened Jeremy to take him to the Final 3 instead of Wentworth. Spencer doesn’t regret the move, but how it was presented. Savage then asks Jeremy about his arrogance about how he reacted when Kimmi was voted out. Jeremy said his feelings were hurt.

Stephen asks Tasha why she listened to Jeremy all the time, but she feels like she made her own decisions. Stephen asks Spencer why he betrayed people, and he said he betrayed because he had to.

Ciera says flippers never win. Why should flipping be rewarded this time? Jeremy says it was the best season and it wasn’t flipping –  it was voting blocs. Tasha said it was due to the multiple swaps why there was so much flipping. She just made sure she survived. Spencer says there were too many types of relationships and the voting blocs were fluid. He needed to make sure he took advantage of the voting blocs and put himself in a position to climb to the top.

Keith asks Jeremy why Spencer is a winner. He says Spencer was on the bottom, but he fought his way to the top. Keith asks Spencer why Jeremy is the winner, and he says Jeremy put himself in a position of power early on with his relationships.

Abi asks them to talk about their subtle moves. Tasha said it was reconnecting with Spencer. She was tighter with Spencer than Jeremy, even though everyone believed she was tighter with Jeremy. Spencer says his subtle move was with Joe and how he shifted distrust onto him instead of having people doubt him. Jeremy’s subtle move was finding hidden idols and playing one for Stephen.

Kimmi says Spencer was a bully last night. Kimmi says Jeremy allowed Spencer to replace them and feels betrayed. Jeremy is indignant and says Kimmi was the one who betrayed him, so he didn’t replace her. She replaced herself.

Joe says his vote is open. He says Tasha wasn’t aware and that she listened to Jeremy. Tasha says Joe getting voted out was her choice. Jeremy and Spencer were worried about a possible female alliance, but she made sure Joe left that night.

Wiglesworth tells them to pick a number between one and ten. Jeremy picks 2, Tasha picks 3, and Spencer picks 4.

Kass reminds Spencer how he told her she had zero chance at winning for flipping back at Cagayan. Why should he be rewarded for flipping now? Spencer believed that he has changed and he is not the same Spencer who would have made that remark, and Kass appreciates that he tried to change.

Wentworth asks about their second chance story. Tasha says hers was to build and maintain relationships to make sure people stayed loyal to her. Spencer says he had no people skills, but worked to improve. He believes he made relationships he couldn’t make his first time. Jeremy says everything is for his family. He is missing out on his wife’s pregnancy. His second chance was just about his family, and he tearfully reveals Val’s pregnancy.

The jury cast their votes before we see Jeff carry them away. We return to the live studio with an audience full of cheering Survivor fans. Jeff says it has been an electrifying season and that everyone has played hard. It’s time to find out who won.

The first vote is for…

JEREMY COLLINS WINS SURVIVOR: SECOND CHANCE!! 

It’s time for the live reunion show. Jeff asks Jeremy why he hid the fact he had a baby on the way. He says he was a threat last time for being a family man, so he didn’t want to add onto that. Next Jeff says that everyone played hard due to be voting in by fans. Tasha said thinking of the fans got her through her tought times at Angkor. Ciera says she was pressured to make big moves due to being voted in by fans. It wasn’t just family on her side – it was thousands of fans believing in her.

The talk turns to big moves, especially with hidden immunity idols. Wentworth says it was very stressful having to find idols in front of everyone. We next see a quick montage of Wentworth’s impressive game play, and Jeff asks her about her idol play that took Savage out of the game. She says if she never voted for Kass, then they would not have told her she was going to be voted out next. She believes her social game got her that information to allow her to play the hidden immunity idol effectively. Jeff then asks about splitting the votes. Not splitting the votes hurt Savage and splitting the votes hurt Stephen. Savage said no one believed Wentworth would have had an idol, and Stephen said he believed Joe could have had multiple idols. There is also talk of Stephen trying so hard to take out Joe. Stephen said he lost to the golden boy JT last time, and Joe was the golden boy this time.

Jeff talks to Keith next. He asks why he didn’t show off the fake hidden immunity idol to try to stay, and he says that he didn’t want to go out like that. Jeff also asks why he considered volunteering to quit to allow Kimmi to stay. He gets choked up and says that he just felt that it was the right thing to do. Jeff talks to Kimmi about that. Kimmi says that it was unfortunate she ended up leaving anyway, but she owns up to the game she played.

Jeff talks to Spencer next. He says Spencer grew emotionally in the game after being arrogant and treating people like chess pieces in his first season. Spencer says he appreciates having grown emotionally, but admits he stopped watching the season. He really regrets not voting out Jeremy instead of Stephen and Joe, and he didn’t want to watch him make the mistake of allowing himself to go to the end with Jeremy.

Jeff talks to Joe next, and there is a lot of talk about him being very popular with the viewers. He says he always dreamed of being on Survivor and he is thankful for how liked he is by the fans. There is also talk about him making it to the loved ones’ visit with his dad, and how special that moment was. While Joe was popular, Jeff talks to Abi next. He says she got a lot of hate, but Abi tells him she has received a lot of love too. She gets hate, but people appreciated that she voted out Joe.

The talk turns to how harsh the elements were. First he talks to Tasha and how she almost drowned. Tasha says her mind was in it, but her body gave out. She was legitimately drowning in the water. Joe talks about passing out in the middle of the challenge, and how dazed he was after waking up. Keith admits he was struggling during that challenge too.

Next Jeff discusses Terry having to leave the game due to a family emergency. After returning home, the doctor luckily managed to find a heart quickly for Terry’s son to have a transplant within two months. Jeff goes into the audience to talk to Terry’s son Danny. Danny is much better and doing well today.

We see a preview of next season, which includes Caleb Reynolds from Big Brother 16. They are redoing the Brains versus Brawn versus Beauty theme. There are also several medical evacuations in the upcoming season too, and we see clips of some serious injuries.

The live reunion show ends with Jeff telling people to apply for the show if they are interested to be on Survivor. He also says people can donate to help causes similar to what Terry’s son had to endure, and then he thanks the audience for their loyalty before bidding us goodnight.

And that wraps up this season of Survivor: Second Chance! Thanks for reading, post your thoughts in the comments section below, and come back in February for an all new season of Survivor!
