Why the Curse of the Final Reward Was Turned Into the Curse of the Car For No Apparent Reason

Borneo) Richard Hatch wins a car for winning, thus making the car curse moot. Kelly Wiglesworth wins Final Reward and loses.

Australia) Tina wins a Harley. Colby wins the final reward and a Pontiac Aztek. For some reason, Tina’s vehicle win is forgotten for Colby’s vehicle win and loss.

Africa) Lex wins an avalanche/an awesome source of power in the final reward and loses the game. Start of the perceived car curse?

Marquesas) Sean wins the final reward and car and loses the game. Vecepia wins a car and wins the game.

Thailand) Ted wins the final reward and car and loses the game.

Amazon) Matt wins the final reward and car and loses the game.

PI) Burton wins the final reward and car and loses the game.

All-Stars) Boston Rob wins the final reward and car and loses the game. Amber wins (but somehow this turns into a differential being made between ‘winning’ and ‘given’ despite its synonymous use) a car and wins the game. Amber is given another car to give away to someone else.

Final reward curse has held up for eight seasons but car curse has been broken three times, or four if you count a Harley as a car.

Vanuatu) Eliza wins the final reward and car and loses the game.

Palau) Ian wins the final reward and car and loses the game.

Guatemala) Cindy wins the final reward and car and loses the game.

EI) Terry wins the car on day 28, wins the final reward on day 37, and loses the game. Cirie is awarded a car as fan favourite because of a subjective edit.

CI) Ozzy wins the final reward and loses the game. Ozzy is then awarded a car as fan favourite because of a subjective editing job.

Fiji) Yau-Man wins the final reward, car and loses the game. Dreamz could be viewed as winning the final reward and car and loses the game.

China) Amanda wins the final reward and loses the game.

Micronesia) Erik wins the final reward and loses the game.

Final reward curse where players win a reward with 3-6 people left and never win. The car curse has been broken numerous times already.

Gabon) Bob wins the final reward and wins the game.

Tocantins) JT wins the final reward and wins the game.

Samoa) Russell, Shambo, and Jaison wins the final reward and ALL lose the game.

HvV) Jerri wins the final reward and lose the game.

Nicaragua) Chase wins the final reward and loses the game.

RI) A reward never happens. Although Ashley wins a pizza on day 35 in the last reward item handed out with immunity? She loses the game.

SP) A reward never happens. Although Brandon wins a pizza on day 35 in the last reward item handed out with immunity? He loses the game.

So one year-cycle in the 12 year history of Survivor has the final reward curse broken, and it takes year 9 to break it. For the car curse, you have to be ridiculously picky with the criteria to figure out what you think is the car curse. My goodness, just accept the car curse doesn’t exist and that paying attention to the final reward is much more worthwhile.

    The car curse refers to people who win a car as part of a challenge in the game, not the car the Sole Survivor is sometimes also given as part of his prize package.
