'Survivor' Finale: Cagayan Crowns Million-Dollar Winner (VIDEO)

We all knew this was going to happen -- New Jersey cop Tony had this round of "Survivor" nailed down.

Throughout this season of "Survivor: Cagayan," Tony was proactive with immunity idols, strategy and conning. From Day 1 he masterminded several alliances and worked the other contestants like puppets on a string.

He easily outpaced and outplayed his final-two opponent, Woo, who he somehow managed to convince to take him to the finale. Outlier Kass almost made it, but had to settle for third place when Woo chose Tony over her.

Overall, it was a season of intense drama and interesting constestants -- let's hope "Survivor" continues that theme in the fall of 2014, when it returns with another Blood vs. Water edition.
