Who wins Season 1 of Netflix's reality show 'The Trust'?

Ahead of the final Trust ceremony, host Brooke Baldwin announces that the prize pot stands at a whopping $268,000, and each finalist is set to leave the oceanside villa with $53,600.

In the dramatic vault meeting, Brooke unveils the ultimate temptation: "Name an amount up to $25,000 that you'd like to take from the trust. If you bid the highest number, it's yours to keep."

Having been the poster kids for loyalty all season, Gaspare, Jake, and Brian toy with the idea — but ultimately kick the offer to the curb. On the other hand, Julie and Tolú find themselves teetering on the edge of uncertainty. Julie ends up rejecting the offer, but Tolú decides to snatch up the max bid of $25,000 (she keeps it on the down-low, though).

As the final day unfolds, tension reaches its peak. Brooke eventually spills the pipping-hot tea, revealing that the trust now stands at $243,000. A last-minute betrayal looms as contestants step forward to reveal their fate — will they all choose to share, or is someone about to miss out on the big bucks?

In a surprising twist, all players flip a "Share" card. Tolú, the suspenseful last reveal, emphasizes genuine connections and declares, "There are truly genuine people in this world. You don't have to live your life feeling like you have to be on guard or on edge every single day."

Brian receives a whopping $78,600, Tolú struts away with $73,600, and Julie pockets a cool $63,600. Meanwhile, Jake and Gaspare walk away with $48,600 each.
