Week 12 "Survivor" Recap - On to the Finale!


After 36 days and nights on a deserted island in a foreign country (well, deserted except for the camera crews, audio workers, and the management booths), the Final Four have been chosen to scratch and claw their way to winning the $1 million jackpot in the CBS reality TV series, Survivor: Chinaand Suffolk's own Courtney Yates '03 has a chance to take home the dough on the December 16 two-hour finale that begins at 8 p.m.

It's been a long and winding road for the CAS graduate, who originally hails from Melrose but currently live in New York City. She had overcome a variety of hazardsboth man-made and environmentaland the standard skullduggery that personifies this show, staving off an attempt by nemesis Jean-Robert Bellande (who, upon being voted out during Week 8, accurately predicted Courtney would slide into the finale) and then handling the others during the remaining episodes to end up as a favorite among some of the blog sites to become the winner.

Either way, all of us here at Suffolk wish her a hearty congratulations for her efforts, and we will be glued to the tube this Sunday to see if she becomes America's newest millionaire.
