Final Words

I've been watching Survivor for fifteen years. I still love it just as much as I did day one. I didn't quit, didn't give up. Even being sent out, on my own, I still tried to get in there and fight the good fight. I'm proud of the way I played. I'm proud of the game I played, and I think my family will be, too. Love you, girls. (blows kiss)

Life at Ponderosa

Jason gets his post-game weigh-in, and it is revealed that he had lost 23 lbs. during his time on the game. While on the truck ride to Ponderosa, Jason discusses talking about his family on the game, stating that he has never opened up about them to such a wide audience before. He is then greeted by the other jurors, and gets a surprise from Scot who is only wearing underwear and a wrestler mask, making everybody laugh. Jason heads to brush his teeth, where he reels from the devastation of being voted out just 7 days from the finals. The jurors express their opinions of Scot and Jason's co-existence, believing that they will bring more noise and entertainment to the bungalows. Jason heads off for reflection time, and recounts spending his junior years enjoying Survivor with his father, who had been an alcoholic. He mulls over his life experiences.[2]

Secret Scene

  • Fire Squabble - Jason and Joe got into an argument about the campfire. Jason is eager to prove that Joe is not the only person capable of starting a fire, and does so by hauling a separate log into camp for ignition. Joe believes that Jason is merely trying to stir up trouble at camp, and Jason confirms this in a confessional.[3]

Unaired Confessionals

  • Now I'm The Bride - Cydney discusses her performance at the Immunity Challenge and her satisfaction of finally winning immunity after consistently coming close in the past and losing.[4]
