1) With his current reputation, Chris can inspire more younger adults of today’s generation. His experience in Edge of Extinction serves as a story of hope of survival. His story fuels the younger and future generations to become the best versions of who they are.
If Chris releases his Survivor autobiography today, I will buy it asap in hardcover. Mark my words.
2) Given. Chris was eliminated early but as a new rule, he was given a choice either to stay or to quit. He stayed but in exchange, he needed to survive the psychological turmoil of a desolate island. Then, they were given a chance to return, he lost to Rick Devens. The second time they played a challenge, he won fair and square against the most competitive returning player, Joe.
Moral lesson here is: Chris continues to aspire to redeem himself even after days of psychological turmoil in EoE.
As Chris said in an interview conducted by SheKnows, “That is the game. It’s not Survivor: Season 5 anymore. It’s developed, changed and that part of keeping players on their toes to keep fans excited. You’ve got to be able to leverage the theme.”
3) When Chris returned in the game proper, his story stayed uncertain. He failed to win a necklace around his neck. His communication skill saved him, however. He outwitted Lauren and relied on her hidden idol to secure a spot in the Final 5. It worked!
4) Road to Final 3. Chris won the final immunity but gave it to Julie, which was an all-or-nothing strategy to prove himself he can win “not just because.” He understood the calculated risk and made it happen. With the right strategy, he outplayed Devens in fire making challenge.
5) Chris received 9 of the 13 votes to win. This is an enough evidence to hail him as one of the best sole survivors in history – in the Top 5 even. If there is anyone who can accurately evaluate Chris’ overall game, his strengths and weaknesses, it’s the jury. No one else.
