From the beginning of ‘Survivor: Cagayan,’ one player stood out — he knew how to strategize, how to manipulate, and basically, how to survive. So I was beyond thrilled that on the season 28 finale, the right player won the $1 million.

So, how did he make it to the final two, and how did it all play out? Well, I’d say — the way it was supposed to. [Spoiler Alert: don't read on if you don't want to know who won!]

After 40 days in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines, Survivor came to a grueling end, and one of the final four became the $1 million winner. Spencer Bledsoe, Yung “Woo” Hwang, Kassandra “Kass” McQuillen and Tony Vlachos all made it to the final episode — but who took home the title of Survivor on the May 21 finale?

Since I feel like it’s season 200 of ‘Survivor,’ my expectations aren’t especially high  for entertaining, amazing, drama — but the season premiere of ‘Survivor: Cagayan’ proved me wrong.

Survivor: Cagayan has taken the three qualities that have been valuable in past seasons and made them into tribes — Beauty V. Brains V. Brawn. However, the Feb. 26 premiere proved that not only does being “book smart” not matter in the jungle, but having looks and being buff actually do help. Psst — don’t read on if you haven’t watched yet!
