Survivor San Juan del Sur Finale: Who Won?!

at .  Updated at . Comments

Survivor: San Juan del Sur has come to a close, and a winner has prevailed.

Last night, Survivor Season 29 Episode 13 saw a champion crowned, complete with the ultimate bragging rights and a cool $1 million for her efforts.

So who was able to outwit, outlast and outplay the competition in the end?

Natalie Anderson!

The final three in this Blood vs. Water season were CrossFit coach Natalie, Texas cheerleader Missy Payne, and former Miss Michigan USA Jaclyn Schulz.

Natalie triumphed despite her sister Nadiya being the first person voted out of the game, but the tough 28-year-old New Jersey native never wavered.

She earned five jury votes to Schulz's two and Payne's one to clinch it.

If you watch Survivor online, you know Natalie Anderson was a strong competitor in every facet of the game, from the physical to the mental and social.

Still, who would have guessed this outcome even a few weeks ago?

Looking ahead to next season, three tribes - Blue Collar, White Collar and No Collar - will arrive in Nicaragua to compete in CBS' Survivor: Worlds Apart.

Jeff Probst says this 30th season is already a personal favorite.

What did you think of how the 29th iteration of the hit show came to a close? Did Natalie deserve to win, and were you at all surprised at the outcome?
