The poll had some surprises. Amber, whose claim to fame was her friendship with mean ole Jerri, wasn't voted off the Outback until the 11th episode. Yet viewers picked her as the very last castaway they would have voted to win.

And remember Debb - the first castaway voted out and who got teary-eyed at the reunion show with Bryant Gumbel? Well there just might have been a sympathy vote for her. She came in 9 out of 16 with 1.7 percent of the viewers thinking she should have won the $1 million.

And our audience didn't have a lot of patience with non-rice cooking Keith. He barely edged out Debb for eighth place with 1.8 percent.

Jerri, Kimmi and Mitchell all tied with 1.6 of the voters thinking they should have won.
Nick and Kel also tied - 0.9 percent chose them.
