Second Round: Top 3 Interviews and DebateEdit
The Abi-Maria ControversyEdit
After the first round of voting was over and the finalists had been announced, Abi-Maria stepped forward to complain that she had been out of the country during the voting and had been unable to campaign. She requested that the finals be extended to include four people so that she could participate in the debate. Her campaign created a fake finalist interview video by splicing together footage of Rob's interview with RC and footage of Abi-Maria. The controversy grew to the point that Rob had to fold an emergency podcast. Russell Hantz and original Miss Survivor Parvati Shallow weighed in on the controversy and Rob read a statement from the Abi-Maria camp. Ultimately, Rob left the decision up to the finalists, if all three agreed then Abi would be allowed to run and participate. RC took the stance that it would be unfair for Abi to be included and thus Abi was barred from continuing in the competition.
Kim was the first Miss Survivor finalist to give an interview. Kim was humbled by the nomination and talked about her upcoming wedding. For her talent, she went back to her old bag of tricks, telling Rob what animals her opponents resembled. She then answered questions from the RHAP community. Kim stated that she would not shave her head if she won the competition.
RC started off by thanking Rob and her campaign manager Tim Lamaster. She claimed that winning Miss Survivor was more important to her than winning Survivor. For her talent, she played the Survivor theme song on a whistle. Finally, she answered questions from the RHAP community.
In a departure from her final tribal council speech, Chelsea chose to remain seated for her opening statements. She talked about the charity she was involved in and stated that winning Miss Survivor would help her get rid of the "no votes" stigma. For her talents, she played spoons on her knee, made a noise by hitting herself in the head, and shot-gunned a beer in 9.5 seconds. She then took questions from the RHAP community.
The three finalists came together for a live debate, moderated by Rob. RC wore her bikini in the debate to fulfill a campaign promise because those were really important to her. The women answered numerous questions from the listeners, agreeing on most.
Final Vote Reveal and CrowningEdit
The final round of voting opened on February 7 and ran until February 10. After 6600 votes were cast, the final results were announced on February 12. Reigning Miss Survivor Parvati Shallow was with Rob and Nicole in the studio for the result.
