CBS finally reveals jury’s votes

CBS.com has updated the voting history page of its Survivor Cook Islands for the second time this week, this time to add the jury’s votes.

Ozzy received votes from Parvati, Nate, Jenny, and Rebecca. Yul received votes from Sundra, Adam, Jonathan, Candice, and Brad. That was the vote distribution that Yul assumed, with Sundra voting for him.

Meanwhile, Yul tells TV Guide that he “thought [the final vote] would be a toss-up, which it ultimately ended up being. I don’t think I could say I deserved it more than [Ozzy] did. I think that with any other season or any other group of jurors, he very well could have won and would have very much deserved it. I think it came down to people’s preferences: Do people appreciate the strategic game play and the social side of it, or the physical-challenge side of it? In my case, just barely a majority ended up favoring the strategic side.”
