Montfort said, “I believe, too, that this time around no one knows who’s won yet. I think the voting from the last Tribal Gathering hasn’t been tabulated yet, and will be on the final episode, which will done live, sometime in March or April.”
This has been a rumor that has been going around quite a bit lately. CBS constantly denies this, claiming that the votes were counted in the normal fashion in order to capture the people in their passions.
It was indeed $5 million dollars that would be paid to CBS, plus everyone on the island loses all their money, including the winner.
Mark Burnett(Rob Burnett was Letterman’s producer and prodcues Ed) spend a good deal of time before the show airs making up fake photos and stuff to throw off all the people who try to figure out the winner. That is how the whole “Gervace is the Winner” rumor got started last time. Already, there are fake photos of the final seven contestants, fake copies of the show schedule, and more.
Very early on, the show does let out who will be kicked. They don’t do it directly, but subtly. For example, this week there will be a reward challenge requiring the tribes to have poles on their backs holding water and whoever can hold the most wins. I and many other had seen the clip and had noticed the abcence of Kel and Debb.
Everyone else was there. And it is known that Michales pole breaks, but that is all.
TV guide wrote that Kimmi said she would “go in her birthday suit on her birthday” and it is known that her birthday was day 20 of the competition, but vague things like that don’t reveal too much.
Ony about 20 people know who the winner was, and they are all sworn to secrecy. Even those early kick-off’s don’t know who wins.
