LOS ANGELES (AP) — History was made on the CBS reality series “Survivor.”
For the first time in 36 seasons, the season finale ended in a deadlock, and a tiebreaker was needed to crown a champ.
Host Jeff Probst on Wednesday night revealed jurors on “Survivor: Ghost Island” in Fiji were deadlocked at five votes apiece for Wendell Holland and construction supervisor Domenick Abbate of Nesconset, New York.
It was up to the third member of the final three, Laurel Johnson, to break the tie.
