This is the Season Finale of Survivor: Argentina

Previously on Survivor...

20 castaways arrived in Campos del Tuyú National Park for the chance at one million dollars. Divided into teams by gender both sides had there faults. At the first immunity challenge a growing feud between Emilio and Travis lost the challenge for Necochea as a result sending Emilio home. Necochea able to rebound from it to win the next immunity challenge where La Plata would go on to send Jessica B home. During the third immunity challenge the men went back to fighting as Travis lead the team to another big loss. The challenge plus The Four A$$hoes being in the minority resulted in Travis being sent home. Over at La Plata Zaya, Sara, Kayla, Jessica H, and Nikki were apart of the main five people of the La Plata alliance with what would look like nothing could stand in their way. When Kayla didn't come back to camp before the reward challenge a search began for Kayla. When found Kayla had an unknown snake bite on her leg taking her out of the game. This event at first seemed a small dent in the La Plata alliance but turned bigger when Jessica H would take it the hardest. After La Plata lost the following immunity challenge, Jessica H would be willing to go and the tribe honored her request. The next morning Scott was needing a way out of his alliance being picked off one by one so he went to T.P. to see if they could work together to take out a swing vote. In the closest immunity challenge so far, La Plata was able to pull out a win and at tribal T.P.'s alliance Undivided gave Scott his chance and sent home Joe. A double tribal would soon follow with Tree and Zaya able to pull out the win with Tree getting the reward. Necochea's tribal appeared Jay was a goner but was caught off guard when Scott joined Undivided and sent home Chris while La Plata would go easy sending Marissa home. At the following immunity, Necochea were looking to win but their boat would start to crack losing the challenge. At tribal James would try to sway Scott and Jay to his side and tie the votes but it didn't happen sending James home. With five members left, Necochea couldn't lose the next challenge and would go on to easily beating La Plata in the next immunity challenge. La Plata would have another calm tribal sending home Heather. The tribes would then merge with both tribes trying to get the upper hand. Scott was worried that Jay would flip but at the next tribal it was Tree who would flip sending Totolax home. Tree would then be made the next target but Zaya and Audi would decide Tree needed to stay flipping over to Undivided as a result sending Nikki and then Kristie to the jury. With her back against the wall Sara would have to find a way out of getting voted out and would enjoy success at in winning the following immunity sending home T.P. and having Scott tie the votes sending Jay home. Her luck however would come to an end when Scott got word she wanted him and Tree gone. Zaya and Audi would also not want to work with her sending her home 4-1. Four are left. The leader Zaya, The a$$hole Scott, The underdog Tree, and the always cheerful Audi. Who will be crowned The Sole survivor and claim the million dollar prize?


Day 37 Immunity Challenge: Fallen Comrades
The remaining contestants will answer questions about the eliminated contestants.
Winner: Zaya
Day 38 Immunity Challenge: Hand On A Hard Idol
Each tribe member held on to the Tribal Immunity Idol while standing on a small log. Participants may not move their arms while touching the idol. Only one hand may touch the idol, and they may not lift their foot. The person who lasts the longest wins immunity.


Night 36

The tribe arrives back at camp following tribal. Scott heads done to the beach.

Now that Sara is gone it will be easier to have the others turn on each other by simply winning immunity.

Quote1Scott, You have been on the hot seat for the past couple tribals. Are you worried you could go home?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1I am very worried. I have never done that bad in a challenge. I live my life making enemies. I always think, why should I care Totolax is a firefighter.Quote2- Scott
Quote1Scott.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1What?Quote2- Scott
Quote1T.P. is a firefighter. Totolax was a chef.Quote2- Tree
Quote1I thought T.P. was like some inspirational speaker of whatever.Quote2- Scott

Final Words

Well I figured as much. I've never been at remembering stuff about people. Should have known stuff like Jay was from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Live and learn.


Night 37

Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive back at camp following tribal.

Quote1Not much longer in the game.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1It is even quieter with out him.Quote2- Tree
Quote1That is for sure.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Tree, how does it feel to be the last guy standing?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1It feels like everything else.Quote2- Tree

Quote1So now what happens? We made it to the final three like we planned.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Now somebody has to go.Quote2- Tree
Quote1It's game on.Quote2- Zaya

Quote1Yeah. Whatever happens. We made it to the final three.Quote2- Tree
Quote1I guess you're right.Quote2- Audi

Day 38

Buenos Iris

Zaya, and Tree are up and out of the shelter.

Quote1Tree?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1What's up?Quote2- Tree
Quote1It still makes me wonder why you guys kept didn't get rid of him sooner.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Mainly because of strength.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Makes a bit of sense.Quote2- Zaya

Audi comes out of the woods.

Quote1Can you guys come with me?Quote2- Audi
Quote1Sure.Quote2- Tree

Zaya and Tree head into the woods following Audi until they come up on the challenge mail post where a basket of food and a note is there.

Rites Of Passage

Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Emilio's torch.

Quote1Emilio. He was a shy kind of guy.Quote2- Tree
Quote1What happened with him?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1He came out to prove to his local bullies he could do something and ran into another bully.Quote2- Tree
My three days started out good but turned to worse because of Travis. I'm disappointed I could go any farther and that the guys back home were right.


Jessica B
Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Jessica B's torch.

Quote1So glad you went home so early.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I'm guessing you two didn't get along.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Jessica B targeted Zaya second one after we got to camp. Started accusing her of being an untrustworthy leader when she hadn't spoken to her.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Okay.Quote2- Tree
Quote1She made enemies too fast.Quote2- Zaya
Looking back I seriously regret how I acted. I had a wonderful time. I should have tried making friends over trying to turn people on each other.

–Jessica B

Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Travis' torch.

Quote1So tell us about Travis.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Emilio's bully. He might have been able to slip past again but that immunity challenge sealed it for him.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Why not take him out first?Quote2- Audi
Quote1Jay and Joe figured the other three would pick up after him.Quote2- Tree
In my seven days I didn't do much talking or strategizing with others only relying on the ones I had talked to. I was completely unaware of the negative vibe I was giving off because of my feuds with people.


Zaya, Audi and Tree arrive at Kayla's torch.

Quote1Kayla.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I felt so bad for her.Quote2- Audi
Quote1I don't know much about ya'll's tribe but just based on the reactions I could tell you were all hurt by her evacuation.Quote2- Tree
Quote1She was one of the heart and souls of the tribe.Quote2- Zaya
I was taken out by something out of my control but I learned that I should always have somebody with me in the wilderness like this. I felt like I disappointed my tribe.


Jessica H
Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Jessica H's torch.

Quote1One of the most loyal ally anyone could ask for.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I could see she took the evacuation the hardest.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Those two became the best of friends out here.Quote2- Audi
Quote1As much as we didn't want to she checked out quickly after.Quote2- Zaya
I was only out here for nine days but in those nine days I made a true friend and I didn't at the time think I could go on with out her. I look back now and think I should have continued on for her.

–Jessica H

Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Joe's torch.

Quote1Our tribe's first actual blindside.Quote2- Tree
Quote1What happened with him?Quote2- Zaya
Quote1We chose strength over taking out the other a$$holes.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Wow.Quote2- Audi
Quote1It was because of this tribal Jay started feeling on the outs.Quote2- Tree
Looking back on my time out here I believe I should have been more solid with the people I was with instead of flip flopping between alliances.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Chris' torch.

Quote1The start of Scott being with us started with the blindside of Chris.Quote2- Tree
Quote1After seeing Joe gone we all thought Jay might have been next.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Especially after he was so disappointed in losing the challenge.Quote2- Audi
Quote1It was thought to be him but it was decided again with strength.Quote2- Tree
I enjoyed every minute of my time out there. This game is harder then it looks. I didn't see Scott turning on us like that.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Marissa's torch.

Quote1Poor Marissa.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1She quickly fell out of place.Quote2- Audi
Quote1I'm guessing her vote was no surprise.Quote2- Tree
Quote1She would have gone sooner had Kayla not left the way she did.Quote2- Zaya
I have never in my life felt more out of place than I did the fourteen days I was out here. I tried to late to turn the game in my favor.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at James' torch.

Quote1James was the lesser of the four. He tried to save himself up until the last minute.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Your tribe always had the most interesting results to see.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Was this another strength tribal?Quote2- Audi
Quote1I think it was more of he was on the outs after Chris left.Quote2- Tree
I tried too late to show my tribe another side of me. Up until day sixteen I wasn't the nicest of people and even some of my late game jokes even sounded mean. I couldn't get people back on my side.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Heather's torch.

Quote1Heather.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1She was done as soon as she jumped on the idea of turning us against each other.Quote2- Audi
Quote1I guess we all had those that wanted to make trouble.Quote2- Tree
Quote1We sure did.Quote2- Zaya
My biggest mistake was trying to take advantage of an opportunity given to me. I should have stayed quiet and hoped they were telling the truth.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Totolax's torch.

Quote1Totolax.Quote2- Tree
Quote1He was so lovably horrible at his final challenge.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Audi, gravity was his downfall in that one. He could cook really well.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1If I'm ever in his area, I will make sure I stop at his place.Quote2- Tree
I'm happy with how I did. It hurt me that an ally of mine turn on me but that's the game and he did it to improve his spot. All I did was try to cook my through and be friendly.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Nikki's torch.

Quote1Oh Nikki. If you hadn't been so focused on your own goal.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1She wouldn't have gone if she knew not to target Tree.Quote2- Audi
Quote1It was me or her that night. I'm glad you two picked me to stay. I always think there was somebody else in this blindside.Quote2- Tree
During my time I made many great friends. I failed at a critical point to ask for my allies input and instead only cared for what I wanted. twenty four days ins't bad though.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at T.P.'s torch.

Quote1T.P. was one of the best allies I could have asked for in this game.Quote2- Tree
Quote1He would always look out for people and was thinking every aspect of a vote even what the future could look like.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Looking back we could have kept him and gotten away with getting rid of our main target later.Quote2- Audi
Quote1That we could have.Quote2- Tree
In this game you must be strong mentally, physically and socially. I failed to be a strong person to keep for challenges and was booted after thirty days in order to beat the person that needed to go. I should have tried harder.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Jay's torch.

Quote1Jay.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Our powerhouse competitor.Quote2- Tree
Quote1He was great before merge and then the first challenge but started to decline.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1He almost won the one challenge.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Yeah. He was taken out by rock.Quote2- Tree
Quote1That was my least favorite night.Quote2- Zaya
I had the best time out here during my 33 days. I will always look back on when I lost my footing in the one challenge and it cost me.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Sara's torch.

Quote1Sara was great until when we turned on her.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1She started to check out of the game.Quote2- Tree
Quote1She ended up making a deal with the devil and then tried to turn on him.Quote2- Audi
Quote1At that point it was too late.Quote2- Tree
After being out here for 36 days I can't complain. I didn't handle situations how I should have and was unable to recover.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at Scott's torch.

Quote1And here is the cause of pretty much anything going wrong.Quote2- Tree
Quote1I think he had his hand in all of the blindside except the first merge one.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1He was always there to mess things up.Quote2- Audi
Quote1I'm so happy he left.Quote2- Tree
For 37 day, I had this game perfect for me to win. I was apart of every big move. I could argue I deserved the win. I just could not remember stuff about those that came before me.


Zaya, Audi, and Tree take Scott's torch with the other up to a pile, place them on, and light then on fire before heading to the final immunity challenge.

Quote1I know.Quote2- Audi

Over at the beach Tree is just sitting on the sand looking out into the water.

A lot is going through my head right now. Do I stay true to Zaya when she has many friends on the jury or do I take Audi because she hasn't really done anything. This is a very difficult choice.


Tribal Council

Zaya, Audi, and Tree arrive at tribal placing their torches behind them before taking their seat.

We will now bring in the members of our jury. Nikki, Kristie, T.P, Jay, Sara and Scott voted out at the last tribal council.

–Jeff Probst

Nikki, Kristie, T.P., Jay, Sara, and Scott arrive at tribal and take a seat on the other side.

Quote1Tree, you won immunity. How does it feel to have these two's fate in your hands.Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1I'm nervous about if I'm making the right decision or not.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Zaya, why should Tree take you?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1A few reasons. One, our deal at the challenge. Two, I don't think he would be here had it not been for me turning on Nikki.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Audi, what about you?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1Well, I feel I have less friends on the jury than Zaya does.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Tree, you have two good arguments here. Zaya is saying you should stay true to your deal while Audi says you could win easily against her. What are you thinking about?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1I'm thinking about everything. Scott was always thinking one step ahead. I need to get into that state of mind. I need to look at those six over there and think would they vote me over Zaya. Would they vote me over Audi.Quote2- Tree
Quote1So what you are saying is you have to figure out what the jury is thinking in comparing you to both of them.Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1Yes. Who do I think they will vote me over. I have been thinking about it all day. There are so many things to think about.Quote2- Tree
Quote1What are some of those things?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1Well how did their relationship end? Have they gotten over any arguments? Are they still mad about their blindside if it was a blindside or will they put that aside to vote on strategy.Quote2- Tree
Quote1It sounds lie you have a lot to think about.Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1I do.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Audi, would you want to be in Tree's spot?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1After hearing that. I respect anything Tree decides. I would not be able to do all that.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Zaya, how about you?Quote2- Jeff Probst
Quote1It is a lot of work. This vote isn't the most important for nothing.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I just hope I make the right call.Quote2- Tree
With that it is time to vote. Tree, you have immunity. You can not be voted out. Zaya can only vote for Audi. Audi can only vote for Zaya. Their votes cancel each other out so only you will vote.

–Jeff Probst

Tree walks off towards the urn, places his vote and walks back.

I'll go tally the vote.

–Jeff Probst

Jeff walks off, grabs the urn, and walks back.

Once the vote has been read the decision is final. Person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. I'll read the vote.

–Jeff Probst

Sixteenth person vote out of Survivor: Argentina and the seventh member of out jury...Audi. You need to bring me your torch.

–Jeff Probst

Audi gets up, grabs her torch and walks to Jeff.
Jeff, "Audi, the tribe has spoken. It's time for you to go
Audi walks out of tribal and into the night.

You have gone as far as you can go in this game. The power now shift to the jury. Seven people you had a hand in voting out. Grab your stuff. I will see you tomorrow night.

Final Words

I came close to making it to the end. 38 days is not bad. Tree stayed true to his deal with Zaya and we will see if it pays off for him.


Night 38

Zaya and Tree arrive back at camp following tribal.

Quote1It's even more quiet now.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Nothing really left to do.Quote2- Tree
Quote1I know.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Good luck tomorrow.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Thanks. You too.Quote2- Zaya
I chose to stay loyal. It might hurt me but I did what I said I would do.


Day 39

Buenos Iris

Zaya and Tree are up and out of the shelter.

It's day 39 and I'm excited for tonight as well as nervous.


Zaya heads down to the beach.

Today because there isn't a need to talk strategy. Zaya and I decided we would just separately reflect on our game and our time here.


Tree sits on the shelter for awhile just thinking. Zaya comes back up from the beach.

Quote1It's hard to believe 38 days ago there was 20 of us.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1I know.Quote2- Tree

Zaya and Tree talk on about various things like the city they left behind and family. After they are done, Tree grabs a stick from the fire a throws it on the shelter as the two leave for tribal council.

Final Tribal Council

Zaya and Tree arrive at tribal and take there seats.

We will now bring in the members of our jury. Nikki, Kristie, T.P., Jay, Sara, Scott, and Audi voted out at the last tribal council.

–Jeff Probst

Nikki, Kristie, T.P., Jay, Sara, Scott, and Audi arrive at tribal and take there seats on the other side.

So here is what is going to happen. In a moment I will allow you to make your opening statements to the jury on why you deserve to win the title of sole survivor. After that, each juror will address you and make their statement or questions and get as much info to make their decision. The jury will then decide which on of you two will win the title of sole survivor and the million dollar prize. Zaya, you will start.

–Jeff Probst

Well first I would like to say it was great playing with all of you. In this game during the first part I was put into the role of the leader. I lead my alliance through to the merge and then made a final 3 deal with Tree and Audi. I then worked around being with Undivided until there was no other way we couldn't make it unless Scott was able to stop us. I played my heart out making sure I got to know everyone possible while staying loyal to people.


Jeff, "Tree, you're up."

I would also like to say that I had a great time playing with all of you. Unlike Zaya I wasn't in a leader role. T.P. was in that role. I stayed loyal to T.P. and learned from him and Scott of figuring out a situation before it happens. I made it to the merge staying true to my alliance. When I made the deal with Zaya and Audi, I got the feeling it might hold but might now but I made the decision to turn on Totolax on the case that it did. When it did I made sure that I would always stay true to them no matter what came my way and managed to win the final challenge as well as many others.


Okay. In just a moment the jury will make there statements in order to help them decide who they will vote for to win this game. Scott, you are up first.

–Jeff Probst


Quote1First of all congrats to you to on making it. Zaya, to say you were completely loyal to your alliance would not be a fair statement because you did turn on Nikki and from my knowledge you had a deal with her longer than you did with Tree who was just a way to get yourself further. Tree, one thing that you did that confused me was you admitted to us that you had voted Totolax but you were as much loyal to us. Why did you do that? Why not just let me go off on Jay or Jay go off on me?Quote2- Scott
Quote1It was not in me to let the alliance crumble just because I had chosen to go with Zaya and Audi because I knew if they were being truthful on the deal they wouldn't vote me out but vote with me if it was me on the chopping block.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Thank you.Quote2- Scott

Scott goes and sits down.
Jeff "Nikki, you're up."


Quote1Zaya, You were one of my closest allies in the game. So to know it was you that turned on me hurt. Why did you betray me and the rest of us like that for a deal you had just made a few days before that might not have meant anything.Quote2- Nikki
Quote1To be honest it started out as just a moment of frustration at you. I was frustrated that you wouldn't listen to us but were so quick to jump on Tree.I was trying the whole time to say Tree voted with us and to vote someone else. It was one of my least favorite moments of the game.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Thank you. Tree, you are a great guy I'm sure and I never got to know you. On the immunity side of things Scott seemed to dominate you on that. I can't really judge you on the reward side because I never saw it.Quote2- Nikki

Nikki goes and sits down.
Jeff, "T.P."


I don't have anything really say. Tree, you were my buddy and you did what you needed to do in order to survive. Zaya, a lot of times it came off on me that you were forced into your late game moves. You came to me after betraying Nikki and Sara went off on you. While Tree was able to get past it and stick with us. You never made the attempt to reconcile with them. My vote is decided already so good luck to you two.


T.P. goes and sits down.
Jeff, "Kristie."


Quote1Zaya, T.P. brings up a good point. Why didn't you try to work with us again? You are saying you were loyal yet we were your alliance first and you just pushed us aside.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1I didn't try to work with you and Sara again because I got the vibe that you didn't trust me any more. I felt that if I went to work with you again that I would be blindsided by you and end up where you are so I stuck it out with Tree and them.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Thanks you. Tree, I wish you good luck and I'm curious about the nickname.Quote2- Kristie
Quote1One of my friends thought it was funny that the way I stood in high school plus my height compared to them kind of resembled a tree.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Interesting.Quote2- Kristie

Kristie goes and sits down.
Jeff, "Jay you're up."


Quote1Tree, my elimination plays in my head so many times. I want to know, had it been Audi eliminated by the rock what would have been your next course of action?Quote2- Jay
Quote1I would have gone to you about how sticking with Scott nearly got you eliminated and then hoped we vote out Sara or Scott next. I wouldn't have taken you with me here because you also dominated challenges and probably would have beat me.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Zaya, I think you took everything one step at a time which is good but with Scott making things happens a step ahead of everyone and like T.P. said you got forced into things. Scott won the second immunity because he knew that if Tree wasn't safe that you would vote to keep him and it worked. That is all I have to say.Quote2- Jay

Jay goes and sits down.
Jeff, "Sara."


I don't have a question for you two but I will say this. I know I did some wrong things in this game. Zaya, I should not have gone off on you like that and I respect that you didn't want to keep me because I had checked out and started to rely on Scott to carry me through. Tree, you did well in this game. I am proud of both of you. I am going to stick with my girl because I thought she handled things well.


Sara goes and sits down.
Jeff, "Audi you're up."


Quote1Last one out and last one to speak. Tree, you are a great guy to be around and it was great to play with you. I have no questions here. Zaya, everyone is saying you didn't stay loyal but you were always loyal to me.Quote2- Audi
Quote1Can I say something on that?Quote2- Tree
Quote1Sure. Go ahead.Quote2- Audi
Quote1During our rite of passage, Zaya said that Kayla was one of the heart and souls of the tribe. Now I might be over thinking but Zaya has always shown that moment as her least favorite one of the game. I think Kayla and Jessica H were originally part of the final 5 deal that Zaya went away from in favor of our final 3 deal.Quote2- Tree
Quote1Zaya, is that true? Was Kristie and I a back up for the La Plata final 5?Quote2- Audi
Quote1Yes. After Jessica H was voted out we knew we needed two people in the alliance that would be loyal.Quote2- Zaya
Quote1Thank you.Quote2- Audi

Audi goes and sits down.

Okay. Take your time to think about what each person said. You are voting for who you want to win. For the last time it is time to vote. T.P., you're up first.

–Jeff Probst

T.P. walks to the urn, places his vote and walks back. He is followed by the rest of the jury ending with Kristie.

I'll go get the votes.

–Jeff Probst

Jeff walks over to the urn, grans it and walks back.

As much as you would like for me to read it now, you will have to wait. I'll see you all back in the states.

–Jeff Probst

Jeff picks up the urn and walks out of the tribal area.

Voting confessionals

As I said I will be voting for you.


I'm over the betrayal and to show it I am voting this way.
