While I enjoyed the final two challenges as they were pretty close, I really could not stand Tony and was disappointed that he made it to the final tribal and that he won. I love "bitter" jurys as they provide a check and balance versus dickheads like Tony (not this time though unfortunately). I would have much rather preferred a kass/woo showdown as there actually might have been some drama in the final vote.
Definitely agree with all of this. Trish had one of the best bitter jury speeches in a long long time. Too bad it looks like she still voted for Tony. It seems like as time passed, the trend was that bitter or not, the jury rewards the more dominant player. As much as Kass bugged me, her comeback immunity win was amazing and I thought she deserved a place in the final 2 for that. I still wish the three of them would have challenged Tony's bluff and taken him out instead of Spencer but that was never going to happen.
The irony is that in spite of this being one of the most unpredictable moment to moment seasons, the end result ended up being one of the most predictable. By mid-game it looked like nothing could stop Tony except perhaps a Final 2 scenario, but somehow he even managed to overcome that. I love Woo's comment that he'd have to be the stupidest Survivor in history to bring Tony with him, and then he does it anyway. What a tool. I do respect his explanation but given the context, was it worth $900,000 (I think that's the differential)? This wasn't quite the Colby situation where the game was still pretty new and he had made a committed pact with Tina. Tony had already tried to backstab him multiple times, and had already proven to be a massive liar, so no one would have blamed Woo much for taking Kass. I don't think Tae Kwan Do tenets mean you should also do completely stupid things lol. I could almost feel the seething from his Asian parents, "you cost us $1 MILLION dollars you stupid stoner!!!"
All in all a great season for me, but with a disappointing final outcome.
