Final Tribal Council
Survivor Fan Characters gameplay
Description The Final Two (or Three) plead their case to the jury to win the game
Appearances Every season

The Final Tribal Council is the final event of the game before the reunion. This is where the finalists face the jury, who will have a very important decision to make in voting for a winner. The person who gets the most votes from the Jury will win the title of Sole Survivor and the one million dollar prize.

On Day 39, the final two or three generally either clean up, tear down, or burn down their camp as a tribute to surviving until the end of the game. They then trek to Tribal Council one final time.

While remaining present to watch over the proceedings, the host does not ask either the finalists nor the jury any questions, as opposed to an ordinary Tribal Council.

Another change is that in the Final Tribal Council votes are cast not by the remaining contestants, but by the jury, and that they are voting for and not against somebody.


After the finalists deliver their opening speeches, the jury will given a brief time to think about their speech or question before addressing them. Each jury member has the option to:

  • Ask each of the final players a question (either for one specific finalist, or all of them), which that player must answer.
  • Make a short speech which requires no answer but is meant to throw the finalists off guard, possibly venting all of the juror's frustrations after being eliminated from the game, or telling the jury why they should vote for a certain player.

When all Jury members are finished, each final player will make a closing statement, allowing them to respond generally to the jury's questions and again explain why they would be the most deserving winner. After this, the host will ask the Jury to vote for who they think deserves to win the title of Sole Survivor and the million dollar cash prize. Unlike previous Tribal Council sessions, where players write the name of the tribemate they want to go home, this time, the Jury votes for a winner.
