'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 Finale: Michele aces immunity challenge puzzle, fans say she's 'perfect'
While everyone was stressed and trying to figure out the puzzle, Michele breezed through it with ease and won immunity
Despite struggling to complete the course at the start, Michele Fitzgerald managed to complete the immunity challenge this week.
'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 returned on Wednesday night, May 13, for the three-hour finale. Though it seems like the season just started, it all comes to an end tonight and one castaway will walk away with the $2M jackpot, the title of the greatest 'Survivor' player of all time and of course, bragging rights.
Last week, we witnessed both Nick and Jeremy get voted out and sent to the Edge of Extinction. Picking up right where it left off last Wednesday night, the castaways from the Edge of Extinction, returned to the main island, for the last returnee challenge. Only one contestant could make it through and it was none other than Natalie Anderson.
Despite having three advantages and a head start, Natalie still struggled during the challenge, but somehow made it through and won the challenge. Her strategy was to throw Tony Vlachos under the bus and it seems to be working.
Arriving at this week's immunity challenge, the final six had to complete an obstacle course, run up a staircase and slide down. They had to run up the stairs and slide down collecting three bags before completing a puzzle. While everyone seemed to be ahead, Michele found herself struggling at first.
But when everyone else reached the puzzle that's when they started to suffer. This helped Michele catch up eventually. While everyone was stressed and trying to figure out the puzzle, Michele breezed through it with ease. This puzzle was easy for her since she had already done it once when she was on a previous season and won.
Though she was lagging behind everyone, this puzzle helped her win and gain immunity. Taking to Twitter fans couldn't be more excited for the castaway. "SHE DID IT AGAIN!!!!!! LOVE YOU MICHELE! YOU ARE PERFECT!!! @meeshfitz #Survivor #SurvivorFinale," a fan shared.
"Michele Fitzgerald and Natalie Anderson stay WINNING on WINNERS at war #Survivor40 #SurvivorFinale #survivor #SurvivorWinnersAtWar," a fan said. While another added, "Michele is the queen of three-level puzzles! #survivorfinale."
"Michele motherf*ckin Immunity-winning FITZGERALD THATS MY WINNER #survivor #SurvivorFinale," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "Michele proving that slow and steady wins the race when there’s a puzzle at the end. #Survivor40 #SurvivorFinale #SurvivorWinnersAtWar."
