Have to give a pat on the back to Mark Burnett and his crew/company for probably the best season to-date – Survivor. Then many can’t believe she did it again: Sandra Diaz-Twine became the first two-time Survivor winner.
Many felt and saw villain Russell receiving no votes, while flirt Parvati managed to grab three. Now the suspense is over and next season there will be new faces. And to many it will be a relief not to see Russell hogging all the airtime. For all who followed the suspense are is the final tally in the ratings and ‘Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains’ was a history making dominator.
