Albert tried, but no one was biting his sweet talking BS.
All the former Upolu and Ozzy gave Coach a wake up call that he may not have this game in the bag after all. On the final Tribal, what a blindside.

Wow, what a finale. Up until this last episode, I thought Coach had it in the bag. Then of course all the promises you make will catch up to you when you can't keep your word to everyone. I was gutted when Ozzy lost the final challenge. But at least he won player of the season, good for him. I'm okay with Sophie winning I guess, but I totally was not expecting that. I felt bad for Brandon. His worst mistake was giving the immunity necklace up, but other than that, he made it far. He tried to be a good person in such a hard game, and it's ashame his own family won't support him.
Ozzie was the REAL winner... He Survived two tribes trying to get rid of him and always manage to come back... Coach is nothing more than a more polished Russel... Words like "honor" and "Christian Man" don't mean any more to him then they would Russel... He will cheat and screw anyone to get to the end... Sophie... give me a break...
Sophie is a deserving winner.
Can they please just forget about the Hantz family. I'm getting really sick of it. If Russel comes back I don't think I can watch anymore. They don't seem to be good people at all and need to be let go.
Does anyone know if next season brings a whole 'NEW' cast?
Coach should have won but he did make a mistake-he should have brought Edna to the Final three-not Sophie. On another note Evil Russell and his family are a bunch of jerks for trashing a family member on nat'l TV.
I was hoping it'd be a 2-2 tie so Ozzy and Albert would do a fire challenge. Just something a little more dramatic. ;D
It kind of sickened me that Albert made it all the way to top three as he certainly didn't deserve to be there. Don't they pay more money to the top three? I mean, .. besides the two top prizes of a million bucks and the hundred grand? Do you happen to know Rickey?
Editing made Coach look like a good strategist, but apparently he played a poor game. Not as bad as Albert, but not a winning strategy at all with all his "playing the game with dignity" mumbo jumbo -- and not following up at the most crucial time the Final Tribal.
Of the last 4 tribals, Edna, Rick and Ozzy voted against Coach.
The only ones who voted for Coach were the two easily "brainwashed" ones: Brandon and Cochran, plus Jim who maybe thought being the perceived "leader" is a winning strategy. Brandon most likely voted because he couldn't stand Sophie and Albert caused him to be voted off.
The fact that Coach didn't even win Player of the Season shows that his strategy didn't sit well with viewers either.
The final Tribal really did Coach and Albert in -- and the reason they lost is because they had no reasonable comeback to the jury.
I like Sophie and Coach so I didn't care which one won. Coach sort of got screwed since he did play the game well. I wish that either Cochran or Coach would have won the $100,000 instead of Ozzy. He was just too full of himself for my liking. It's rather sad that Brandon's family is so down on him. The same family members shunning him now would have been first in line with their hand out asking him to share the money no doubt. I feel bad for him.
I wanted Coach to win, but he blew it toward the end when he couldn't give anybody a straight answer. And of course the bitterness bug got him since people perceived him as the leader.
Anyway, all that said, Sophie did deserve it too. I'm so glad she beat Ozzy at the end.
That's a really good question, Jobe. I hope so because I get tired of them bringing back old cast members as well. It doesn't even seem fair. Give new people a chance to shine and win. I don't believe in the preview for next season that they announced the location, though again it appears tropical. Does anyone know where they will be? It also sounds like they are setting it up for more conflict & fighting amongst tribe members next time. It's like a study in social behavior .... Hmmm ...
Probably. On CBS' Big Brother they get paid for how long they stay in the house, so if you are a finalist you get the most amount of "salary" among the non-winners.
I don't think Coach got $100,000 though. Probably a lot less, but I'm sure he got something as well as all the other players.
Years ago, when there was a "car challenge" -- the Survivor winning the car always got voted off.
This comment is in ERROR.
Rick, Edna and Cochran voted for Coach to win.
The rest of the Savaii tribe and Brandon voted for Sophie to win.
Edna and Rick said they voted for Coach because he played the best game of "manipulation". So apparently, they had no hard feelings.
I originally got my vote tally from Wikipedia, which has now been corrected.
