The 14th episode aired online, and concluded with Ben Fagan defeating Christa DeAngelo, for which he won the $500,000 prize. Adding that to the other money he won, Ben walked away with $587,624. CBS has posted a written recap of the final episode, and, of course, all 14 episodes.
Christa won $70,416, but she just wanted the whole thing to end. “I’m just happy to be done with ‘Pirate Master.’ This whole week I haven’t eaten or slept because I couldn’t wait for it to be over,” she told The Morning Call. “I hated feeling judged by so many people. It’s not like you’re acting. You are yourself — in a game — on a pirate ship. I had a lot of local support, but online some people were really mean. I just had to stop [reading] the comments because I was getting too upset.”
