OfficeTally Survivor Poll: Season 5

OfficeTally Survivor Poll Season 5OfficeTally Survivor Poll is a series of fan polls posted in the summer following a full season of episodes.

Similar to the ‘Survivor’ reality show, you’ll “vote off” your least favorite Season 5 Office episode in each poll, until the lone survivor and most popular episode remains.


After 3 months, more than 700 comments, and over 23,000 votes, Broke is now crowned the winner of Survivor Season 5! Thanks to everyone for voting and championing your favorite episodes so passionately!

Before we move on with eager anticipation to Season 6, I thought we should start a new annual summer tradition: the All-Time Fan Favorite Poll. We’ll do this every summer after completing Survivor.

The task of the All-Time Fan Favorite Poll is singular: vote for your one favorite episode of The Office since the show started. Watch for the Fan Favorite poll next week, and who knows, maybe you’ll get a chance to win a prize!

Here are the final Survivor Season 5 rankings.

All Survivor polls: Season 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9


  1. I voted for Baby Shower – like all Office episodes, it was great, just not one of my favourites.

  2. It’s hard to pick a least favorite. It’s like picking your least favorite child.

  3. I voted for Moroccan Christmas even though I enjoyed it. After looking back at all the episodes, there doesn’t seem to really be any bad ones!

  4. I voted for Moroccan Christmas, simply because I didn’t think there would be one I hated more than Baby Shower. I don’t care which goes first, as long as they’re the bottom two.

    Customer Survey all the way!

  5. Agreed! Baby shower needs to GO! I think it was definitely the worst episode of the season, and can’t think of any one I disliked as much as that one in all 100 episodes.
    Agreed that it was all too werid. Didn’t seem real at all. They can do that kind of thing on 2 1/2 men, it was too easy for The Office.

  6. I voted for Two Weeks. Pam leaving reception made sense. Pam running out after Michael without even glancing over at Jim or giving him any voice or consideration was completely ridiculous.

  7. There were three episodes this season that made me very sad. I voted for the one that made me the saddest — Moroccan Christmas.

    Of course, like all Office episodes, there were brilliant, hilarious moments in it. I always order orange vod-juice-kas when I go out, and the Phyllis-Angela exchange about shoving a member of the nativity in a drawer cracks me up every time. Oh, and Jim wrapping Dwight’s desk! Wait a minute, maybe MC wasn’t so sad after all…


  8. I went with Prince Family Paper… wasn’t very funny… was more cruel than anything. The office debate on Hilary Swank had promise but never amounted to anything.

  9. I also voted for Baby Shower. I thought it was one of the worst episodes of the season. Michael getting the baby’s name wrong (Asturd), Jan singing, Angela posing the baby in vegetables was just too weird for me. Customer Survey for the win!

  10. i voted for Baby Shower… the whole “birth scene” was ridiculous and just difficult to watch. but in the next round, if Prince Family Paper is an option, i’m voting for that. And then Moroccan Christmas.

  11. I never did care for Prince Family Paper. It just wasn’t the Office to me. It made me question Michael which I didn’t like.

    The Hilary Swank bit just went on for too long.

  12. I had to vote for ‘The Duel’. I liked the idea: Andy pinning Dwight to the hedge with his Prius – but the episode wasn’t funny at all. No laughs – and that’s just not right…

  13. I went with The Surplus. Wasn’t very funny aside from Andy stepping in manure and Michael slowly descending in Pam’s chair. Dwight tricking Angela into marrying him was over the top and it was the start of Pam talking weird and she was completely out of character with Michael.

  14. Moroccan Christmas got my vote, probably aided by me holding Christmas episodes to a higher standard.

    As far as mix’d barees’s comment about Pam not consulting Jim when leaving DM, I feel like it’s not out of place for their relationship – he did buy a house without telling her. They seem to have a level of trust deeper than most people would be comfortable with, but if it works for them, it works for them.

  15. Prince Family paper. NOT FUNNY. It tried and just wasn’t, and nothing in the script was original in any way.
