Survivor Cook Islands concludes Sunday

Survivor‘s 13th season ends Sunday with the show’s typical three-hour finale, which includes a one-hour reunion.

For the first time in the show’s history, the finale will begin with a final five: Yul, Ozzy, Becky, Sundra, and Adam. Parvati was voted off last night, saving Jeff Probst the trouble of trying to pronounce her name by saying something other than “poverty.”

The race war seems to officially be over, but that depends upon who ends up at the end, and how the major twist affects each person’s endgame.

The final five has a member from each original tribe except Puka, which has two people remaining. Here’s the final breakdown, indicating the number of people who’ve been voted off by original tribe:

  • Aitu (Latino): 4
  • Hiki (black): 4
  • Puka (Asian): 3
  • Raro (white): 4
