Natalie Anderson is back and ready for payback on 'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40. After around 30 days in the Edge of Extinction, Natalie made her way back into the game by winning the returnee challenge, and fans are excited about her return and say she totally deserves it. 

'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 returned on Wednesday night for the three-hour finale. It seems like the season just started, but it all comes to an end tonight as the series will reveal the winners of the $2M jackpot and the title of the greatest 'Survivor' player of all time.

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 week, the castaways from the Edge of Extinction, return to the main island, for the last returnee challenge. Only one contestant could make it through and gain their spot back in the game. 

For their challenge, the contestants had to complete an obstacle course while they were tethered to a rope and then complete a ball puzzle. Natalie had the most number of tokens and was able to buy three advantages. Apart from her, Wendell, Parvati and Yul bought one advantage each. 

Buying three advantages, Natalie got to miss the first two obstacles and one-third of the obstacle was completed. Despite having an advantage, she was behind as she caught stuck in the rope. While most of the castaways were ahead of her, she manages to get a chance to come back and compete with the rest. She reached the final obstacle, which was the maze ball. 

Going head to heal with Wendell and Tyson, Natalie managed to put the two balls into the maze. She won the challenge and got her spot back in the game. Natalie was the first contestant to get voted out and sent to the Edge of Extinction, and now she made it back into the game with the last returnee challenge. 

Fans on Twitter cannot contain their excitement and are affirming that she deserved the win and her spot back in the game. "I'm so proud of Natalie, she deserves everything and to win. #SurvivorFinale #SurvivorWinnersAtWar #Survivor40," a fan said. 

"Natalie is winning, literally about to pull the same move her and her twin did the first time #Survivor40 #SurvivorFinale #SurvivorWinnersAtWar," a fan shared. While another added, "Natalie Anderson is such a deserving winner. I'm so glad she's back in. #SurvivorFinale #survivor40." 

"Natalie seriously deserved to get back. Happy for her #SurvivorFinale," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "#SurvivorFinale Natalie bought that victory. 3 advantages. But after all that, I hope she wins."
