The final three had come down to Natalie, Jaclyn, and Missy, but it was Natalie who took home the $1 million prize with five votes versus Jaclyn's two. Natalie is a 28 year-old Crossfit coach and physical therapy student who competed with her twin sister, Nadiya.
Host Jeff Probst told EW, "I was happy with how it ended. Natalie deserved to win and once again I was pleased with the decision of the jury to reward the best player. I don’t think this is one of our very best seasons. I do think next season will be better, in fact I guarantee it. But I was proud of how this group played to the best of their abilities."
This morning Natalie tweeted:
Still drunk. Still surreal. Still can't believe I won a million fucking bucks! ahhhhh
