End of Year Awards 2020 – The Winners

And the winners are…

Last week, we opened the polls for the Inside Survivor End of Year Awards to determine the best, funniest, and most shocking moments of Survivor in 2020. The Inside Survivor Patrons separately nominated four choices in each category (six for Best Character and Best International Character). We then tallied those votes to determine the final nominations for each of those categories. The Inside Survivor readers could then vote on their winners.

The voting is now closed and we can officially reveal the winners. If you missed it, you can catch up on all the nominees here.
