REALITY CHECK

December 19, 2006|By SARAH KICKLER KELBER

At long last, Survivor: Cook Islands is over, and it's unclear whether the latest twist - that the final three would stand before the jury rather than the final two - made much of a difference. Even though Becky was in the final three, she received exactly zero votes to win. But her presence in the final three meant it really was a head-to-head competition between strategist Yul and challenge-dominator Ozzy - neither was tempted to take a weaker player to the final two for an easy win, as we've seen happen in numerous seasons before. So whether you were satisfied with Yul's win or upset that Ozzy lost, at least none of us had to sit through a Yul vs. Becky or Ozzy vs. Becky final tribal council. That counts for something.
