Survivor Africa concludes tonight; only one tribal council vote remains.

Survivor Africa concludes tonight; only one tribal council vote remains.
Survivor Africa ends its 13 episode run tonight with a two-hour finale and a one-hour live reunion. At the end of the two-hour ep, either Lex van den Berghe, Tom Buchanan, Kim Johnson, or Ethan Zohn–the final four–will be revealed as the winner. CBS’ EyeMail e.mail newsletter explains how the rest of tonight’s episode will work: “An immunity challenge will eliminate one of the survivors. Then a second immunity challenge will reduce the tribe to the final two members, before the jury of seven castaways, including the two just eliminated, cast the final vote.” Then, just like last year, “the winner will be announced live.” Bryant Gumbel hosts the reunion at 10 p.m. ET.
