As the tribes gathered for the immunity challenge, Amber, Jenna L. Jeff then announced that the tribes were merging, and that they would live at the old Saboga camp.
They were given new blue buffs, as well as two Hawaiian slings and a tarp. The castaways chose the name "Chaboga Mogo" for the merged tribe by combining the names of the three original tribes.
Lex approached Boston Rob about his deal. Boston Rob promised to keep him safe, however later revealed that he never had any intention of keeping his deal with Lex and that it was all a game so that Amber could stay.
Boston Rob then approached Amber to tell her that Lex was going next. Amber was hesitant, as she had promised Lex and Kathy that Boston Rob and her would be the final four. Amber didn't want to break her word just yet and tried to convince Rob that they should play it safe by eliminating Jenna or Rupert but Boston Rob felt that Lex was too big a threat to keep around. The men and the women competed separately for immunity.
The first round is a competition to determine who can hold their breath underwater the longest. Two men and two women would move on the final round, where they must swim underwater to release ten buoys.

The first man and the first woman to release ten buoys win immunity. This challenge was based on the first individual immunity challenge of Borneo. Hantz was seen as a threat by his tribe Zapaterawhich intentionally lost an immunity challenge in order to vote him out. There was also intense distrust of Hantz due to his Heroes vs. Mariano, on the other hand perhaps even benefitting from his early boot on Heroes vs. Villains, and the large gap in time since All-Starsmade various strong alliances with most members of his tribe Ometepe and managed to convince his tribe that his experience was valuable and that he could be loyal.

His two closest allies throughout the game, Grant Mattos and Natalie Tenerelli, were particularly strong in their extreme loyalty and at times blind trust towards him.
As the game progressed, Mariano managed to increasingly draw in the otherwise unpredictable and disagreeable Phillip Sheppardbecoming by far his closest and most trusted ally, with Mariano showing great care and social awareness in his handling of him.
Ashley Underwood, Andrea Boehlkeand Matthew Elrod also were firmly on Mariano's side through their entire time in the game, right up until Mariano orchestrated their vote-offs two different times for Boehlke and Elrod. Ultimately, his six-person alliance from his original tribe remained loyal to one another and they became the final six players remaining on the main island although others remained on Redemption Island throughout the game until Day Mariano managed to remain in the game for the full 39 days, winning the final immunity challenge.
Mariano carefully orchestrated the blindsides of those he felt could beat him in a jury vote or a final four immunity challenge, first voting off Boehlke, the sixth member of the alliance from almost the start. Mariano was tipped off about Boehlke and Elrod reconnecting in the game, which became impossible when both were sent to Redemption Island.
The surprise immunity win of the next intended target, Ashley Underwood, forced Mariano to scramble last minute into his first difficult choice, ultimately blindsiding Mattos, likely the biggest jury and immunity threat of the entire Ometepe tribe. He had convinced Mattos that Tenerelli would be voted out that night instead, and even shook hands with Mattos on the plan to vote Tenerelli out, but became the swing vote sending Mattos to Redemption Island.
It was a debate as to whether an all-girls alliance of Tenerelli and Underwood could possibly oppose Mariano, or whether Mattos was a significantly larger jury or final immunity threat to Mariano's potential victory, a decision which in hindsight was clearly the correct one.
Upon Boehlke's return from Redemption Island, Mariano eliminated her with the use of his immunity idol and convinced his alliance to again stick with him.
Lastly, he removed Underwood, his only remaining possible threat for jury votes, by successfully convincing Tenerelli to vote her out rather than force a fire-making challenge against Sheppard. This was not only to ensure Underwood's elimination, but would likely lose Tenerelli Underwood's vote due to her betrayal Underwood did indeed lash out at Tenerelli at final tribal and vote for Mariano to win the game.
He thus went to the finals with the strongly disliked Sheppard and the little-respected, perceived coattail rider Tenerelli, accomplishing the plan he had set in place even before the merge. While the jury consisted of a combination of former Ometepe members whom Mariano had blindsided and former Zapatera members whom Rob had virtually ignored and who had been picked off one-by-one by Mariano's cult-like alliance, the somewhat hostile and bitter jury believed that they had no real options given that the other finalists were seen as undeserving players who had been dragged along by Mariano also known as "goats"and in which Mariano finally won the title of Sole Survivor in an vote, securing him the winner.

Sheppard only received a vote from Ralph Kiser. His game is often cited as one of the best examples of complete control when playing with 18 other recruits and being a three-time player ever seen on the show, as well as perhaps the best-ever execution of the increasingly popular "goat herding" strategy of modern Survivor, pinpointing and taking the weakest and most easily beatable opponents to the end. To this day Tenerelli and Sheppard are regarded as two of the most obvious goats ever seen on Survivor, let alone to make the finals, and Mariano's ability to bring such weak and disliked individuals to the end is highly praised.
His ability to correctly identify the biggest goats of a game is also widely admired, particularly when contrasted to archrival Russell Hantz's inability to not only keep the respect of a jury as Mariano can, but to accurately judge the weakest opponents to bring to the end as Mariano does. However, many fans criticized Mariano for his huge advantage in being a four-time player and having no real competition the entire season, giving him perhaps the easiest win in Survivor history.
His tribemates were criticized for being too starstruck to act against Mariano. Some fans also criticize him for probably having been unable to beat anyone other than his two ultimate goats based upon cast interviews, amongst other indicators. The jury has even indicated Sheppard could have beaten him had he followed through with his plan to "own his game" and reveal that he had purposely played the villain role to get taken to the end by Mariano, and in doing so had duped Mariano and his entire alliance.
Instead Sheppard was rude, lashed out at Julie Wolfe after she had asked him if his son would be proud of the way he played the game, and gave all the credit to Mariano, thus receiving only one vote from Ralph Kiser, the one jury member Sheppard showed respect towards at Final Tribal and throughout the game and giving Mariano the easy finish glove side.
On Day 22 of Redemption Island, Mariano became the fourth person to play Survivor for days, following three contestants in "Heroes vs. Blood vs Watermaking a total ofand ultimately surpassed Shallow for most days survived, with a total of His record however has recently been surpassed by two four-time contestants in Survivor: Game ChangersOzzy Lusth who played days in four seasons and Cirie Fields who has played days.
His performance in Redemption Island at the time was described by longtime show host Jeff Probst as the "most perfect game of Survivor ever. As of Septemberthe two have still had no contact since the season airing. Lex and Rob have since reconciled and are back on civil terms, although still not friends.
He cites those as the four ex-Survivors he talks with the most, although there are numerous others both from Redemption Island like Phillip Sheppard and Andrea Boehlkeand others within the Survivor community such as Sandra Diaz-Twine and Courtney Yates he keeps in contact with.
During a Roadblock challenge in Mendoza, Argentinain the third leg of the race, contestants had to eat four pounds of meat. Mariano began the roadblock but very quickly determined he would not or could not eat that quantity. The penalty for not finishing the Roadblock was a four-hour delay.
By convincing several other contestants to refuse to participate, he ensured that several contestants were on the same timetable as he and Brkich. Also in South America, Mariano pooled his money with some other racers to bribe the bus driver into letting the teams that contributed off earlier.
When Rob bribed the driver, he used none of his own money. In Botswanaduring the sixth leg of the race, the couple was criticized by fellow racers, as well as host Phil Keoghanwhen they drove by the car accident of another team, brothers Brian and Greg, without stopping.
Their fellow competitors all checked in with the brothers prior to continuing on to the next stage of the race. In southern Africa, Mariano and Brkich saw their own photo on a magazine cover. Mariano and Brkich ultimately finished in second place behind married couple, Uchenna and Joyce. Amongst fans, there has been much speculation surrounding the final leg of the race. It has been argued that the production crew had intervened with the airport authorities and aided Uchenna and Joyce onto the same, earlier plane as Mariano and Brkich.
