'Survivor: Tocantins' 2009: JT Is the Winner

JT SurvivorAfter 39 days filled with fire-starting, alliances, backstabbing and blindsides, James "JT" Thomas, Jr. outwitted, outplayed and outlasted the other competitors to win 'Survivor: Tocantins' and a $1 million grand prize.

The 24-year-old cattle rancher from Alabama not only received the unanimous vote from the jury over fellow finalist (and new "best friend for life") Stephen Fishbach, he won the fan-favorite award of $100,000.

After the live reunion show, JT, Stephen and the third- and fourth-place finishers, Erin Lobdell and Taj George, chatted with reporters on the red carpet. Here's the scoop on that contentious final tribal council, JT and Stephen's excellent future adventures and whether anybody will be friends with Coach ...

JT and Taj talk on Survivor Tocantins

(S18E14) Well, tonight was it for Survivor Tocantins. It's hard to believe that the 18th season of the show is a wrap. Why, wasn't it just a few years ago that Richard Hatch was the evil fat naked gay guy and all the talk around the watercooler? We've progressed a lot during those nine years. This season we stepped up the game to include a naked skinny Mormon crude dude and a delusional coach. So, how did things go down tonight? Read on.

Jeff Probst hosts the auction on Survivor Tocantins

(S18E12) Would you prefer what's in the covered dish or what's behind Door Number Two? Okay, I lied. There is no door, just the dish. But, just think a minute ... if there was a door, perhaps Coach would be behind it pledging his never-ending Dragon Slayer hot love and devotion to you! That would make it all worthwhile, wouldn't it? This was the Survivor auction week, always a world of gastronomical goodies. What I'd like to see is Coach on a platter at Tribal Council. Is that asking too much?

Can Taj win Survivor?

Former pop star Taj George on Survivor: TocantinsBack in January, I read articles mentioning that a member of 90's pop group SWV was going to be on Survivor: Tocantins. Taj George, former pop star, author, and wife of famous NFL footballer Eddie George was cast without any bells or whistles. I was nervous seeing how ... well Olympian Crystal Cox did in Survivor: Gabon, but decided to give Taj a shot since she was involved in one of my favorite songs: "Weak."

I was happy to see that she didn't degrade herself to Celebreality shows or I'm A Celebrity, Get me Out of Here! Fast forward several weeks, and Taj is part of the final six and still has a shot at winning the money.

At the moment, Taj's best bets of making it to the final four is to keep with her alliance of J.T., Stephen, and Erinn. If Taj was smart, after getting rid of Coach, she should form a women's alliance with Erinn and Debbie and get rid of J.T. and Stephen. I thought of a few other strategic moves that Taj should make to win Survivor: Tocantins.

Steve Thomas and Kate go GreenOne of the best things about reality shows for me is watching people succeed or crash in a fiery abyss. While watching Grey's Anatomy, I caught the commercial for all the summer shows and was excited to see the return of I Survived a Japanese Game Show. Last year was heavily underrated. All the contestants were likable, everyone learned about Japanese culture, and the biggest thing everyone came off learning something.

While I wait for summer and hope for a new season, this week started off MTV's The Phone. I was nervous about Justin Timberlake being the executive producer, but the show surprised me. Any fan of The Mole, The Amazing Race, Cha$e, or Treasure Hunters should probably consider. Now on to the weekly awards.

Paula and Ryan on the Duel 2As the numbers continue to dwindle on the competitive reality shows, tension is starting to rise and I want a front seat. The one thing I appreciate about network reality programs compared to scripted shows is that there are new episodes every week (I'm looking at you, Grey's Anatomy).

I'm going to make a prediction that next week Coach will say something stupid, Frenchie will say something that needs subtitles, the cast of The Biggest Loser will sweat, and Adam will regret singing "Play That Funky Music" a few weeks too early. This week's awards after the jump.

Survivor Tocantins

They do this to us every season on Survivor -- the roughly mid-season clips show. Now, I'm not sure of the wisdom behind the whole thing. Perhaps it's to secure the jobs of the show's graphic artists so they can make new flashing "unseen before" logos. After all, in these tough economic times, those graphic artists need all the work they can get since their other main contribution is the seasonal logo. But that's actually not the reason they had the clips show this season. It was obviously to reinforce my opinion that Coach is a loon.

Scott from the Real World: Brooklyn channels his inner ZoolanderThis week finally heated up for reality television. Tyra's hamsters took part in their second photoshoot on America's Next Top Model, the American Idol hopefuls started to compete on the big stage, the Dancing with the Stars cast finally started to ... well dance, and Chekhov got a shoutout on The Amazing Race.

There weren't any shocking eliminations or anything horrendously groundbreaking, but there were some definite moments. Here are some highlights, and lowlights, after the jump.

Sydney on Survivor Tocantins

(S18E04) For eye candy this season on Survivor, we have Sydney representing the gals. But she's quick to say that she's not only pretty, she's sneaky. Can she be sneaky enough? Of course, if Timbira continues its losing streak, it won't really matter. Well, not yet anyway. Unfortunately for me, the male eye candy this season seems to be more along the lines of outdated cheap chocolates. I'm talking a skinny Tyson prancing about in a loincloth and whatever's going on with Coach's high ponytail-mullet mix. Sure, there are more attractive men there. But do they get the air time these two do? Nope! Spoilers ahead.
