Four finalists remained going into tonight's (Dec. 16) finale of "Survivor: Philippines": (Lisa Whelchel, returning player Michael Skupin, Malcolm Freberg and Denise Stapley.

And after 39 days and sitting in every single Tribal Council, Denise won the million-dollar prize and the title of Sole Survivor.

Before announcing the vote, however, Jeff Probst called for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Newton tragedy -- offering a sober perspective on what it really means to "survive."

So "Survivor" is just a game, but Denise outwitted, outplayed and outlasted her way from the bottom to win.

Here's how she got there ...

Hmm.... I really thought Lisa or Skupin would win, but I guess the fact that Denise survived through all the different tribes & tribal counsels made her the one to vote for?   Don't get me wrong, I'm not unhappy about the decision to give her the win, but will we even remember her name in 4 years?   Hmm.

I also wanted Malcolm to win the fan voted money, not Lisa.

I'm trying to decide if Penner "outing Lisa" during the last TC was her undoing? 

I enjoyed this season.

I thought Lisa or Skupin would win too...I was actually surprised it was Denise. I'm with you are we even going to remember her name in four year....I highly doubt it. I didn't know who won the fan money because I didn't want to stay up any later. I'm not surprised that Lisa won. But you are not the only person I know that is wishing it was Malcolm. Everyone I talked too said they wanted Malcolm to win the fan money.

I feel like I'm playing a game of ring around the rosie until it lets me post.  Just go round and round and round until you finally get the comment box.    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Umm okay, so moving on.....

Sorry that my subject line was confusing.    I also wanted to say that somehow I was able to avoid finding out who won even with being on Facebook.   Maybe some people have wised up to posting spoilers?    Whatever the reason, I was grateful to be able to watch it this morning and be surprised as to who won.  I *did* however, have to tape two shows past Survivor to ensure I saw the whole thing.   I knew there'd be a problem when the football game went into OT and then Obama did a speech.   No way was I staying up til midnight so I just set the DVR with extra time.
