One of the first Reddit AMAs of the offseason, Survivor season 35’s Dr. Mike Zahalsky answers questions about his season, including an alternate winner.

Whenever a season of Survivor finally ends its run, one of the easiest offseason conversations fans can have is who would win in an alternate scenario where they didn’t make it to the Final Tribal Council. While we’ve offered our input into the conversation, a more reliable answer would come from the players themselves.

Thankfully, Dr. Mike Zahalsky from Survivor season 35 can better answer this question himself, fielding that and a bunch of other questions in the first big Survivor subreddit AMA of the offseason, offering up a simple answer to the question of who wins if Devon beats Ben at making fire and faces Chrissy and Ryan in the Final Tribal Council. Not only does Devon win, but in Mike’s eyes, he believes it would have been a lock. Even though I had it 5-3 for Devon, looks like it could have been an even wider gap!

Dr. Mike Zahalsky had a wide array of answers about Survivor season 35, Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers, including who he felt closest to during the adventure (Devon), how castaways received his sex stories from his urology work, who keeps in contact after the game (everyone) and how JP was actually like on the island (awesome, apparently).

Funnily enough, even though the season is over, fellow Coco-Nut, Joe “CocoBodegaTony” Mena, invaded Mike’s AMA with questions of his own. Mike explained to Joe why he didn’t tell him he had an idol and who would win if the two went into the Final Tribal Council, offering up an excellent tease of what’s to come from Joe should he hold an AMA of his own.

It’s rare that you have a Survivor player make it to the finale in one season and offer themselves to a tell-all forum just two weeks after it airs, so a big thanks are due for Dr. Mike and his series of colorful answers!
