End of Year Awards 2021 – 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 2021. The Inside Survivor Patrons and contributors separately nominated four choices in each category (eight 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.

One response to “End of Year Awards 2021 – The Winners”

  1. These polls are obviously biased towards the US version of Survivor, followed secondly by the Australian version and then only South Africa, as most people on this website have only seen the US version.
