    Gunny really saved himself during Elimination. I didn't think he was going to get the perfect score necessary to win, given how poorly he did during the Proving Ground.

    The smoke from the main challenge was annoying. I know the explosions look great for the sake of TV, but as we could see from the POV-cam it made it really hard to see the targets near the top of the circle.

    Gunny was amazing. The zip line looked very stable so his planning and focus could come into play

    BTW after he threw that shot at Proving Ground, what did Chris ask him that caused Gunny to say "At Colby's feet"? I've tried replaying the scene several times but Chris' voice was too low and muffled for the microphones to pick up clearly.

    (I'm guessing Chris asked "So where did the shot go?" and Gunny's response was that his aim was so far off it might as well have hit Colby's feet. But that's just a guess.)

    In essence, you guessed correctly.

    I have to say that I was disappointed in both the stability and the speed of that zipline. There was about zero movement and it was way too slow. I was expecting more "drama" from the zip line.

    Yeah I wanted the zip to go faster, they could line up and aim pretty easily in this one.

    They should be hanging upside down from the zip line while spinning in a circle! :eek:

    I've got to agree, I actually thought the challenge seemed a bit easy. There seemed to be plenty of time to line up on the targets as the zipline moved. Maybe if it'd been at least 50% faster there'd have been some, but I'm actually surprised the one guy missed a target.

    how about starting from the bottom and going up, they'd have choose whether to stay with a target they missed or try and hit the one closest to them.

    I would have preferred they gone down a regular zipline. The ones where your butt is just basically in a sling and your feet are dangling. That "slide" they had them in just gave way too much stability, especially with their feet and legs being supported.

    Awesome season finale. Phil was not one of my predictions to even make it to the final episode, much less win the season. He finished #6 in his season, and yet he pulled ahead of two #2's (Chris and Gunny) and a #3 (Gary). Technically, he also beat another #2 (Greg) as well, though that happened on the first episode. He absolutely smoked the first two competitions, and while he almost lost his initial lead on Chris after initially smoking the third compeition, took advantage of Chris' difficulties with the crossbow to win it.

    I do hope that not only does the series continue, but that they continue to adopt the "proving ground" method of going to elimination, rather than being "nominated." Colby, when he sat down with the final contestants at the house, was really impressed with the level of sportsmanship, as was I. Hopefully he can convince the producers at Pilgrim TV to continue with the revised format.

    Fantastic finale. I had been rooting for Chris and Gary since the beginning but I have to admit by the end I found myself rooting for Phil. That was easily the best season yet and I hope we get more in a similar format. The sportsmanship among these guys truly made it a pleasure to watch.

    Phil won a couple of those final contests with his feet. That guy can sprint.

    I hope they keep the method of elimination (no voting each other out, all based on performance) in the next season. It works so much better than the tribal votes.

    Yup. Chris even acknowledged this when he said Phil made him "feel old" for the first time.

    Season was fantastic and every contestant seemed honored to be there, ergo, no manufactured drama. I agree that the Proving Ground has to stay.
