CBS viewers just learned who won Survivor: Island of the Idols and finale night was about as unpredictable as the rest of the season has been. It was certainly an interesting way for the season to wrap up.

After Elaine Stott and Dan Spilo’s elimination during the last episode, only Lauren Beck, Janet Carbin, Dean Kowalski, Noura Salman, and Tommy Sheehan were left to compete for the money.

Who won Survivor: Island of the Idols?

First, Janet Carbin was eliminated. Then, Lauren Beck was sent to the Island of the Idols jury. That left Dean Kowalski, Noura Salman, and Tommy Sheehan as the final three.

It was a shocking result, as Noura won the final Immunity Challenge and picked Tommy to go with her. Dean then won a Fire Challenge over Lauren.

Hurry up and wait. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ That's what the Survivor 42 cast is now doing. We recently got word that Season 41 is in the process of being filmed in Fiji, but now, we find out that the Season 42 cast has reportedly been unable to travel there for filming, which has caused delays in the production of a new season.โ 
โ 
Survivor 42 was intended to be the spring 2022 season on CBS, with the network working hard to film back-to-back seasons in Fiji. ๐ŸŒด Currently, it looks like Survivor 41 is still on schedule to debut in the fall of 2021, but after that, it is unclear when the next season of the show can even be filmed.โ 
โ 
So why the hold-up? According to a report from fan site Inside Survivor, โ€œa second outbreak of the highly infectious Indian COVID-19 variant over the past two weeks has seen the government impose new restrictions, including a ban on air travel in and out of the country.โ€โ

The final three got to sell themselves to the jury, with Dean, Tommy, and Naura all trying to convince them to send a vote their way. It was a long jury segment this year, bleeding way into the third hour of the show.

Host Jeff Probst started revealing the votes, and it immediately became clear who was about to win the fall 2019 season.

Tommy Sheehan is your Survivor Season 39 winner.ย It looks like the rumors leading into the final night of the show were indeed correct about Tommy easily winning the show.

That’s it for the fall 2019 season of the show. Next up, Season 40 gets started in February, with CBS already dropping the return date. It’s going to be an interesting season, as the cast only includes former winners.

We have a list of the Season 40 cast members for any readers who want to dive into it early. With 20 former winners returning, including Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine, it has the feeling of an All-Stars season.

Survivor returns with new episodes on CBS in February 2020.
