Season 41 Finale
We got to see a complicated season of Survivor with a lot of backstabbing and confusion among the contestants. The contestants were stranded on a deserted island for a span of 26 days. In the seasons before, the number of days was 39, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, the time span has been reduced. The 26 days includes 2 weeks of quarantine for all the contestants and crew members.
Out of the five finalists of season 41, Heather, Richard, Erika, Xander and Deshawn, it was up to the contestants to vote for the winner who will be taking the huge sum of money home.
