The 27th season of Survivor has crowned Tyson Apostol as their winner. Check out the 5 Fast Facts on the new champion who’s $1 million richer.
1. Tyson Had a Shrewd Strategy to Win
— John Doherty (@JGDoherty) December 16, 2013
Apparently, Tyson’s strategy was right on the money as he competed for the big win. NJ.com writes:
Tyson was one of three returning players to head into the finale without having been voted off and banished to Redemption Island. He emerged as a ring leader early in the game and persuaded his alliance to break up each remaining pair of loved ones competing in the game.
Tyson also managed to keep alliances with two other players – Gervase Peterson and Monica Culpepper.

2. The Jury Needed Some Persuasion to Vote for Tyson
Through all of Tyson’s killer strategies, the only thing that could have been the nail in the coffin for him was that he had alienated too many people when he served on the Survivor jury. As he faces the jury, he explains:
Everything I did was strategic. Nothing was out of malice.
Clearly, the jury believed him.

He is also a dropout of Brigham Young University and he spent two years in the Philippines as a Mormon missionary.
