"Boston Rob" Mariano Wins SURVIVOR -Redemption Island

"Boston Rob" Mariano Wins SURVIVOR -Redemption Island

Going into this three-hour finale extravaganza for 'Survivor: Redemption Island' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), one man has been running this game since Day One. "Boston Rob" Mariano single-handedly orchestrated the elimination of the opposing tribe and managed to keep his own alliance of six strong until the end.

At every turn, he had total control of the game, but toward the end it became more and more difficult to keep control. Ashley and Natalie have been considering their chances without the Rob-father, and there's still that element of Redemption Island, which has four people on the cusp of returning to the game.

In other words, more than a month of dominance may not amount to much. Tables can turn almost immediately. Eight people went into the finale. One person emerged the million dollar winner. Could "Boston Rob" be stopped?

For the second time, the person who returned from Redemption Island was the next person eliminated, making the whole experiment basically a wash. Once they got Andrea, who earned her way back into the game, re-eliminated, Rob stuck to his original plan and got the scheming Ashley eliminated.

It was down to Rob, former federal agent Phillip and 19-year old Natalie. Would the jury reward the brilliant game Rob played from Day One, or would sour grapes see someone less deserving take home the million-dollar prize?

Not only did the jury get it right and give Rob the top prize, he even won an extra $100,000 from viewers in the Sprint-sponsored fan favorite award. Do you think Rob deserved the win in his fourth time out there?
