Hello, good people, and welcome to Part Two of the Survivor: South Pacific finale recap. When last we spoke (about five minutes or so ago, right?), Moustache has been sent to the jury box, Ozzy was riding high on another challenge win, Coach made himself look like an ass...again, and Sophie had a total breakdown (at the most opportune time...just sayin'.)
So let's get right back to the action. The next morning has Ozzy thinking about how important this last challenge is. He scales a tree and brings down some coconuts. He has no plans on sharing what he's eating as he has the entire game against him. The other three are talking about how Ozzy has to go. Coach pulls Ozzy aside and wants to talk. He says that they made the deal at Redemption and he specifically said not to tell people about it, and then he threw it out at Tribal in front of everyone. He feels that Ozzy broke this deal and that he is no longer bound to his word. Ozzy tells him that he's been burned before by trusting people (Hi Amanda!) and he wasn't going to let it happen again. Coach tells us that he didn't realize how bad the game had hurt Ozzy. Coach still seems on board with taking Ozzy to the end. He asks Ozzy who he wants gone. Ozzy says he wants Albert and Sophie to have to make a fire. Coach appreciates that idea and seems to be good with it. As they head to the challenge, Ozzy tells us that he's not taking anyone's word for anything. He knows it is winning or go home. This is his final challenge in the game of Survivor, ever and he's ready to go.
Probst sighting! Today's challenge is a big Survivor obstacle course. They'll go through five different obstacles and will grand a bag of puzzle pieces at the other side. Once they have all five bags, they'll be able to start the puzzle. First one to complete the puzzle wins immunity and a guaranteed spot at the final Tribal Council. As the challenge begins, Ozzy is a man possessed. He's rolling through this challenge with little issue. Albert and Sophie seem to keep trying to do the same obstacles at the same time, which is slowing them both down. For crying out loud, there are five obstacles and only four of you...how do you keep going to the same place?
As Ozzy comes back with his fourth bag, Sophie brings back her second bag. At the same time, Coach brings back his third bag as does Albert. When Ozzy gets back with his fifth bag, everyone else has three. Ozzy is working on the puzzle as everyone heads back with their fourth bag of pieces. Ozzy is STILL working on the puzzle as everyone heads back with their fifth bag. Coach and Sophie are now working on the puzzle as well. Albert finally gets there with his fifth bag and we're all at the end. Sophie fits the first piece and the second piece and the third piece. Ozzy now fits in the first to pieces of the puzzle. Coach and Albert are out of it. This comes down to Sophie vs. Ozzy. Ozzy puts in the third piece and they are now neck and neck. And just like that, Sophie flips a switch and quickly puts the rest of her pieces in and wins the final immunity. Ozzy is totally dejected and knows that his Survivor experience has likely come to an end.
