There's only one episode left before the winner of the twenty-fifth season of "Survivor" is crowned. "Survivor: Philippines" has proven to be one of the best in the series' history, due in large part to the great personalities of the cast. One of the most polarizing was Abi-Maria, who found her back against the wall again this week.

This time, though, she failed to win individual immunity, meaning she he had to try and outwit the other players. Nobody was buying her fake idol story, so she appealed to the strategic side. In this, she made a compelling argument. Everyone disliked her so much, she'd never win the million dollars. So take her to the end to improve your chances.

The gambit almost worked on Skupin and Lisa, but they stayed true to their alliance with Denise and Malcolm. The original underdog pair -- Malcolm and Denise -- now find themselves favorites to win the whole thing. Lisa may have an outside chance, if she can get there.

Find out how it all plays out with the usual Sunday finale for "Survivor: Philippines," starting at 8:30 p.m. EST on CBS, or after the football game ends.
