After 39 days and approximately 5,274 references to God, a champion was crowned on Survivor: South Pacific. My full recap will be up soon [UPDATE: Dalton’s recap is now live!], but if you can’t wait to sound off about the finale and who won, then read along for more. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you’re already watched the finale of Survivor: South Pacific.]

After winning three individual immunity challenges — including the most important one at the end — Sophie Clarke endured some hard questions and even harder feelings from the jury, but still emerged the victor, beating fellow finalists Coach and Albert. Ozzy — who won his sixth straight duel to re-enter the game as well as the first immunity challenge to make it all the way to the final four — finally fell to Sophie in the last challenge. Had Ozzy won that contest, he was a shoo-in to take home the million dollars. Instead, jurors were forced to choose between what they perceived as the least of all evils, ripping into the finalists before casting their votes. In the end, the choice was Sophie, whose strength in challenges outweighed her less-than-stellar social game.
