Never winning a single challenge and known for being a coat-tail rider, the 34-year-old beats the most aggressive player Russell Hantz in the final three.
In the battle of "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains", a villain came out victorious. Sandra Diaz-Twine originally from "Survivor Pearl Islands" was declared the winner of the show's 20th season which brought back fallen contestants as well as previous winners to compete once again based on how they are known as.
Sandra, a 34-year-old bank teller from Fayetteville, N.C., beats strong contender Russell Hantz of "Samoa" and Parvati Shallow of "Cook Islands" and "Micronesia" in the final three although never once did she win a challenge. She subsequently is the first contestant to win "Survivor" twice. "It makes me the queen," Sandra said of the double victory.
The finale night began with Colby, the only remaining Heroes tribe member left standing, being voted off. The final challenge was to go through a dark maze collecting necklace while blindfolded. Russell won this immunity challenge and secured himself in the final three position. However the jury at the live finale preferred to give the win to Sandra.
Russell, who is named the second runner up after taking none of the nine votes, was not happy with the result. "If she can win the game twice, there is a flaw in the game," a disgruntled Russell said.
