Survivor 44 seemed like the Carlyn Wiger Show for a while.

In nearly every episode, a segment focused on how Carolyn played the game and interacted with other castaways.

And on social media, Carolyn continuously interacted with fans as the season played out.

It seemed like Carolyn might be getting a winners-edit, but she didn’t leave Fiji with the $1 million prize.

Instead, during a shocking season finale, Yam Yam Arocho was named the Sole Survivor.

The vote wasn’t close either, as Carolyn received no votes from the Survivor jury.

Carolyn reveals she was shocked by Survivor 44 jury vote

“I was shocked as hell! I was like… Carson?” Carolyn told Dalton Ross when asked if she was surprised about receiving no votes.

In addition to stating that “it hurt” to get no votes, Carolyn said that she thought Carson and Frannie might vote for her.

And having to deal with the Survivor After Show immediately after hearing the vote was very hard on Carolyn.

“It’s horrible. It felt like crap. I hated it. Mentally, I was just like, get me out of here. It’s horrible,” Carolyn said about the After Show.

“Horrible. Like, Jeff, stop doing that!” Carolyn elaborated.

Shortly before the season ended, host Jeff Probst stated that he “loves” the After Show that has replaced the Reunion Show during Survivor finales.

“And I get why he does it. Like yeah, it’s real. I ran out. I have not watched that part of it yet. It was horrible!” Carolyn added about the finale night.
