It all comes down to this. One of the remaining four castaways on CBS’ “Survivor: Kaoh Rong” will be named the winner on Wednesday’s finale and walk away with the $1 million grand prize. But before fans can celebrate the 2016 winner, they’ll have to watch the two-hour installment.
Ahead of the premiere of Season 32, episode 14, let’s take a look at who has the best chance of being named the sole survivor in “Not Going Down Without a Fight.”
Photos of Tai from the finale make it appear he’s starting to feel the effects of “Survivor,” and it’s no wonder — he hasn’t exactly had an easy season. While he managed to get several leg-ups in the game, including a super immunity idol, he also betrayed his fellow castaways along the way. It’s no secret Tai is a fan favorite, but CBS’ synopsis for episode 14 reveals the jury, which is made up of eliminated contestants, will “vote for a winner,” and Tai has a few enemies on the panel. Tai made an alliance with Michelle in last week’s installment, and he made up with Aubry, but will that be enough to save him? His decisions to backstab allies throughout the show may hurt him in the end.
The last remaining Brawn competitor has proved she’s the one to beat this season, but does she have what it takes to win out over her fellow castaways? Cydney has had a long alliance with Aubry, but in episode 13, the former Brain admitted she didn’t want the strong competitor around in the end. Could Aubry betray her and cause her downfall?
Michelle has had no issues playing the social side of the game, but now that the season is coming to an end her plans may fall through. Tai tried to send her home in episode 12, and it’s clear she isn’t that close with Aubry. If immunity is on the table this episode, she’ll definitely want to try to win it. Based on her past performances and her killer focus during the challenge in an episode 14 promo picture, she may stand a chance.
It’s no secret Aubry, an original Brain tribe member, is smart, but that doesn’t mean her game play has been easy. Aubry lost two key alliance members this season, most recently Joe, and that may put her at a disadvantage going into the finale. Sure, she has Cydney on her side, and Tai, but is that enough to win? A promo photo from the new episode teases Aubry may have a tough time in the finale. One image shows her seemingly upset during a talk with Tai, and two others feature her appearing to struggle in a challenge.
All of the remaining castaways have a chance at winning, but if this season of “Survivor” has proved anything, it’s that anything can happen. Who do you think will win “Survivor: Kaoh Rong”? Pick your winner in the poll below, and don’t forget to tune in to the finale Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS.
