The show’s 21st winner is just 21 years old.

Survivor: Nicaragua pitted younger contestants against older ones, and youth prevailed. The winner was Jud “Fabio” Birza, a student/model who beat Chase Rice, 24, after a 5-4 vote. Matthew “Sash” Lenahan, at the ripe old age of 30, placed third. Birza played the game by pretending to be a ditz — up until the end — and winning three immunity challenges in a row.

But the older contestants didn’t leave empty-handed. Jane Bright, 56, won the Sprint Fan Favorite award, giving her $100,000.
