What a disappointing ending to what was one of the best seasons of Survivor I've ever seen. Since I began watching Survivor - in season 17 - only twice has the person I thought deserved it most come away with the victory. My first time watching, I thought Bob Crawley deserved the crown, and three seasons ago, Boston Rob most definitely deserved to win. Denise? Kill me. I would have definitely given that championship to Skupin, even if he did hurt himself every five seconds.
And although it was clear that I was coming away victorious of this season of the Champions League for a few weeks now, there was still some drama in the final weeks. If Denise had been eliminated instead of Malcolm in that final vote, Mags would have moved passed Jack, and remained in the Champions League. Instead, he will be relegated to the Developmental League for the first time. Marsh, after winning the D League, joins the big boys up here in the Champs League for the first time.
With my victory, I became just the second person to win the Champions League multiple times. I join Jaydon the Don, who has won this thing five out of nine times. Mags and Lar each have one title, but are now both stuck in the D League, trying to make their way back up.

Note: Some of these made the list because they were God awful and I couldn't watch, others made it because they failed to live up to their potential, and some are just extremely overrated. It's a very varied list.
