Tom wins Survivor Palau; Ian gives up the final immunity challenge.

Tom wins Survivor Palau; Ian gives up the final immunity challenge.
New York firefighter Tom Westman won Survivor Palau with an apparently decisive victory over Katie Gallagher, who only received one vote (that we saw; Jeff didn’t read them all off). Jenn was, predictably, the first to go, although it was because she lost a tie-breaker at Tribal Council. Then Ian, the skinny idiot, gave up immunity (after hanging from a pole for nearly 12 hours) and made Tom promise to take Katie with him to the final two. Why? To regain their friendship and respect after a tense confrontation over their alliance and friendship the day before. Also surprising: During the reunion we learned that Coby adopted a baby and named it Janu (!).
