The winner of Survivor: Tocantins edition has been determined and he spared sometime to comment on the final tribal council. JT aka James Thomas Jr. received unanimous votes, the second in the show's history after Earl Cole in "Survivor: Fiji". He also brought home an additional $100,000 for being a fan favorite.
Sitting down with the runner up Stephen Fishbach, he made commentaries regarding his feeling when the votes from Coach, Brendan, Taj, Erinn, Debbie, Sierra and Tyson were cast. JT thought that the voting would go as follow: Stephen at least got votes from Taj, Erinn as well as Tyson and he from Coach, Debbie and Brendan. Then Sierra's vote will be the determining factor. Stephen agreed to this.
Also, Stephen said that he heard of people's reaction of the final tribal council from the back stage of the New York reunion. "Whenever JT said something they would applaud and whenever I said something they went blurgh," he joked.
JT has done one of his post-winning interviews with TV Guide. He said that he has made up with Stephen after the show and they are even considering to put the won money into investment together. "We've talked about a lot of things, but it's still early," JT said. "...very soon, people will know."
Regarding what his plan after being a million dollar richer, JT revealed "I'm going back to Mobile to continue managing the cattle company, and stash this money in a hole somewhere. And hopefully when I get it out, it'll be twice the size it is now."
