With three days left in Africa, Kim, Ethan, Tom and Lex are all battling it out to win the title of Ultimate Survivor. As tensions boiled and animosity grew, Lex began to plot against his longtime ally Tom, and Ethan looked back on his time in the game. When Kim won the first Immunity Challenge (trivia about departed contestants), Tom Buchanan was voted off of the island. On the penultimate day, the final three Survivors met local tribes and then competed in an endurance marathon of a final Immunity Challenge, which ended with Kim winning once again. Placing the only vote at Tribal Council, she expelled Lex Van Den Berghe from the competition. Kim and Ethan were the final two, and after reflecting on their time in the competition and dismantling camp, they headed to the final Tribal Council, where the Jury of Kelly, Brandon, Frank, Kim P, Teresa, Tom and Lex returned to pass judgement. The final two made speeches trying to convince them to make them the winner, and each member of the Jury asked questions, before placing their final vote. Jeff Probst then revealed the votes to the nine former members of Moto Maji. With a 5-2 majority of the votes, Ethan Zohn, the professional soccer player, walked away with the $1million and the worthy title of the winner of SURVIVOR: AFRICA!.
