At the final fhree immunity challenge, older tribe member Johnson outlasted the two young, fit men to win immunity in an endurance challenge.With Johnson holding the power to choose who she would sit next to in the Final Two, she chose Zohn, believing that she could not win against either man, while thinking that Zohn deserved the money more than Van den Berghe did.
But a twist in episode five saw both of Zohn's alliance members switch from Boran to the Samburu tribe, leaving Ethan alone with fellow Boran members Kim Johnson, Kelly Goldsmith, and Clarence Black.
Two of the new Boran members from the Samburu tribe, Teresa Cooper and Frank Garrison, had an old misunderstanding with another former Samburu member, Silas Gaither.
So, by consensus, Zohn's tribe agreed to throw the immunity challenge in order to vote out the unpopular Gaither.
In the end, Zohn beat out Johnson in a 5-2 vote to become the Sole Survivor, gaining the votes of Goldsmith, Garrison, Cooper, Buchanan, and Van den Berghe.
Zohn was invited to participate in Survivor: All-Stars, which he gladly accepted.
They immediately targeted Black due to his physical strength and he was voted out.
