And then there were three.
The three hour finale of Survivor: Second Chance, the 31st season of the popular CBS reality series Survivor, aired Wednesday night from 7-10 p.m. central time with Alton native Latasha “Tasha” Fox making it to the end.
Fox advanced to the final three contestants, leading to a vote from a jury of her peers for a chance at a $1 million prize. Unfortunately she came up a little short. Jeremy Collins, a married firefighter and father of two from Cambridge, Mass. with a third child on the way, won the prize unanimously.
Collins announced that his wife was pregnant with his third child, a son, during the speeches before the final vote. He ultimately received all 10 votes from the jury to win.
Spencer Bledsoe joined Fox and Collins in the final three. The night began with six contestants remaining in the game and saw some crazy twists and turns to get to the final trio.
Season 31 began with 20 contestants who had previously competed on Survivor and were voted in by fans. It was the first time in the reality show's history that a fan vote was utilized to pick the field.
Collins, Fox and Bledsoe spent 39 days in Cambodia through lots of rain and tumultuous conditions to reach the final three. The vote was announced at the cast reunion show, which aired from 9-10 p.m.
Fox, a 1995 graduate of Alton High School, previously competed in Survivor: Cagayan, Season 28 of the popular reality TV series that began in 2000.
A former St. Louis Rams cheerleader, Fox now resides in St. Louis and works as an accountant.
