Survivor in 2018

End of Year Award Winners

And the winners are…

Over the past week we have been posting end-of-year lists to highlight the best, funniest, and most shocking moments of Survivor in 2018. The Inside Survivor team separately nominated four choices in each category (six in the Best Character categories). We then tallied those votes to determine the final four nominations for each of those categories. 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 and write-ups here.

  1. The only result that surprised me is Best Episode. But it did have Mike flipping on Goliaths and the birth of JacketGate. I would love for Angelina to play again because I love to hate her and for the memes.
