survivor'Survivor: Gabon'
(Sun., 8PM, CBS) 17th season finale
We've come quite a way since that naughty season opener where Marcus' junk fell out of his trunks.

Hard feelings over chocolate chip cookies, a marriage proposal and a girl named Sugar who's proved to be anything but sweet have marked this season, another filled with grungy, food-deprived existences and backstabbing.

Tonight, the winner is announced and the reunion after-show begins (10PM) immediately after. Will Matty go home with a fiancée and one meeeellion dollars? Could be. Meanwhile, though season 17 will be a memory after tonight, don't get too nostalgic; season 18 is already on the schedule for a Feb. 12 premiere.
