'Survivor: Nicaragua' Winner: 'My Immediate Plan Is to Push Limits'

by Audrey Fine, posted Dec 20th 2010 7:00PM
Survivor Nicaragua Fabio JudAfter months of jockeying for position, backstabbing and other such endearing maneuvers that make 'Survivor' such a joy to watch, we have a new winner.

At 21, Judson "Fabio" Birza is the youngest ever 'Survivor' millionaire and he managed to achieve that honor without an alliance. No small feat.

With his "goofy" charm and laid-back surfer dude mannerisms (not too shabby for a boy from Missouri), Fabio truly did stay under the 'Survivor: Nicaragua' radar until it was time to shift in to high gear and win three Immunity Challenges in a row. Talk about clutch. No choking for this model, musician, student, heartthrob.

How is the newly minted millionaire processing his win? We spoke to him this morning from rain-soaked Los Angeles where, on 25 minutes of sleep, he was as delightfully whimsical as always.

'Survivor' Changes Up the Game -- Finally

by Stephanie Earp, posted Dec 20th 2010 5:00PM


Another season of 'Survivor' has come and gone -- and I guess I can even say the person I was rooting for won. The thing is, I only starting rooting for Fabio two weeks ago, when I realized that the time to pick a favorite had long since passed. Sure, like a lot of people, I was rooting for the male model formerly known as Judson, but only from a dearth of options. What was I supposed to do? Root for 'villainous' Sash, whose claim to fame was getting Marty to give up an idol? Sash called himself a backstabber, but his mild-mannered play looked more like a back massage to me. Come on, guy! Villains are supposed to be evil!

Then there was Chase, who floated to the final four like a pretty princess, never really making any calls at all. And even Fabio, who pulled off that triple immunity win right when he needed it, seemed fairly clueless most of the time. I would like to point out that it takes a very fine actor to play dumb. I'm not sure Fabio is the next Tom Hanks, you know what I mean? Sigh. This was pretty sorry batch of castaways, let's be honest.

And the 'Survivor: Nicaragua' Winner Is ... (VIDEO)

Who Is the Winner of 'Survivor:  Nicaragua'?After 39 days in the wilderness, after living through fire and rain, after the players survived stolen food and even survived NaOnka -- it was time to declare a winner on 'Survivor: Nicaragua' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS).

Five contestants entered the finale, but Dan was voted out after the first immunity challenge, and Holly -- the last female contestant -- was voted out following the second challenge. This left us with the all-male group of Chase, Fabio and Sash. And the winner of 'Survivor: Nicaragua' is ...

Cirie's 'Survivor' Blog: Family Matters

It's time for the family visit!

Can I just tell you guys I'm a true 'Survivor' fan, I've watched from season 1, and before I played this game I used to watch and think, "Wow, they have only been gone for 36 days, why are they crying?"

But when you spend 36 days hungry, wet, cold, tired and sometimes in pain -- not to mention living with strangers you've just met who are all trying to take your spot by any means necessary -- and then out of the bushes comes a familiar trusted face, it's so overwhelming. I don't care how tough or hard you think you are, you would cry too ... I cried just watching!

'Survivor: Nicaragua' Season 21, Episode 14 Recap

'Survivor: Nicaragua'['Survivor: Nicaragua' - 'This is Going to Hurt']

Outwit. Outplay. Outlast. Nice slogan, but if Chase wins this 21st season of 'Survivor,' they may just have to change it to "DIMWIT Outplayed and Outlasted." That boy has made more egregious errors in judgment than anyone in recent memory yet somehow continues to stumble upwards. In fact, he's such a bumbler that I was impressed he could figure out how to find the videos on the INSERT BRAND NAME HERE phone they got last night.

Watching each contestant view the taped messages from home is always a teary event and this time was no exception. It's oddly moving to see each Survivor's reactions to his or her loved ones' words of encouragement. (Though I have to admit that I was prejudiced against Sash's mom before she opened her mouth. She raised him after all.) It was sweet though; Fabio cried like a little boy at the site of his mother, Jane's daughter said she was "skinnier than sh*t" and Holly's jovial hubby seemed genuinely happy to see her. Sniff.

What to Watch: December 13 - 19

by Stephanie Earp, posted Dec 13th 2010 2:30AM
Survivor - Sunday December 19, 8PM ET/PT, Global/CBS

The two-hour finale and one-hour live reunion show for 'Survivor: Nicaragua' finally roll around after what has felt like a very long season. I'm still a fan of 'Survivor' but this latest batch of castaways certainly tested my patience. It's like they purposefully self-selected down to the most boring players. Maybe that's what watching 20 seasons of 'Survivor' does to people: convinces them to vote off strong personalities early. Note to Mark Burnett: fix this.

Cirie's 'Survivor' Blog: Chasing Sash

by Cirie Fields, posted Dec 10th 2010 6:00PM
Question: Do you think quitters should have a say at who should win in the game of 'Survivor'?

Anyways, now that the quitters are gone -- let's get to the nitty-gritty. Poor Sash is scrambling for cover. He's stuttering more than a little bit. His strategy seems to have paid off for now, though.

But what was Chase thinking taking the two women who he already had in his pocket to the reward dinner? He set himself and his alliance up to get picked off. But the sun shined on Chase once more. How he got Sash to believe in him again, I'll never know.

Ousted 'Survivor' Contestant: 'Sash Is a Little Punk'

Ah, the 'Survivor' blindside. There's nothing quite like it, especially at this late stage of the game when you really have to love it.

Unless, of course, you're the one whose butt was ousted.

Find out who was on the receiving end last night and what they have to say about it after the jump.

Sash, Survivor['Survivor: Nicaragua' - 'Not Sure Where I Stand']

I'll get to the recap in a minute, but first, I need to vent. I can't stand that Sash. The guy is (with apologies to the late, great John Hughes) an oily bohunk. He's a shifty, slimy snake oil salesman and even in a game where those kinds of traits serve you well, he makes my skin crawl.

There. I feel much better. Now back to our regularly scheduled recap.

So, yeah, wah-wah, poor bohunk, his two partners in crime -- NaOnka and Purple Kelly -- threw in the towel last week and now he's left to fend for himself against the big bad redneck and the rocket scientist club promoter

Hi guys hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Now that we got the niceties out of the way, let's get to it ...

WTF??? Two people quitting on day 28? Is this 'Survivor' or the twilight zone?! Can anybody explain to me why Jeff had to try to be a rescue hero?

I've said it before and will say it again: IF THEY WANT TO QUIT, LET THEM QUIT!!!!!!!!

Cirie's 'Survivor' Blog: The Gloves Are Off

by Cirie Fields, posted Nov 19th 2010 5:19PM
Well guys, the gloves are off and now it gets interesting. Who would have thunk Holly, the lady who wanted to quit, is now the master mind!!! She has an extremely valid argument-- anyone with as much power as it appears that Brenda and Sash have should be public enemy number one and marked for elimination!

Who knew that you could surf a volcano? Not for nothing, but after 25 days in the game of 'Survivor,' the reward could have been bum piggyback rides and Skittles-- just the break in the monotony of camp life would be enough to make a grown man cry!

Can someone pry Chase's head from Brenda's ass? I mean damn, they don't even have a showmance and she has him on lock?

'Survivor: Nicaragua' Season 21, Episode 10 Recap

Survivor: Nicaragua['Survivor: Nicaragua' - 'Stuck in the Middle']

"Something has to change" forewarned Holly (in her South Dakotan twang) at the outset of last night's 'Survivor: Nicaragua,' "and, it has to change soon." And, change it did. Big time. Huge, even.

Here's how it went down...

Following Marty's ouster at last week's Tribal, Brenda and Sash grew even cockier (if that was possible).

"Benry, Fabio and Dan now see that Sash and I aren't on their side," purred Brenda in the dark. "I think Sash and I being in control does look like a king and queen situation, but Sash is more of a queen and I'm more of a king." Wait, didn't Shannon nail that way back in the third episode? Eerie.
