Chris Underwood Survivor
Chris joined 13 new contestants competing with four returning players in the 38th season of the competitive reality television series Survivor. The season premiered on February 20, 2019 and the season finale aired on May 15, 2019. Underwood managed to craft an extra-ordinary Survivor story, accomplishing more in three days than many players do in 39.
Though he was the third person to be voted out of the game, Underwood fought his way back from extinction. He beat out Joe and dominated the strategic Conversation at camp. Underwood joined Devens, Gavin, Victoria, Lauren, and Julie. As Devens and Chris acquired one idol after another, Victoria and Lauren went home in the first and second tribal councils of the finale, respectively.
After he won the final immunity challenge, Underwood made a shocking decision at tribal council: He gave his necklace to Julie and also volunteered to go up against massive threat Devens in a fire-making challenge. Even though he had a guaranteed spot in the final three, he wanted one last chance to build up his Survivor resume.
And it worked. In a triumphant or gut-wrenching turn of events, depending on how you feel about Devens, Underwood won the fire-making challenge, sending Devens home. And after their breakfast feast, the three headed out to the final Tribal Council, where they pled their cases to the jury. Underwood won the title of Sole Survivor in a 9-4-0 vote.
