All the castaways applauded David during one particular jaw-dropping moment in the finale.
During the season finale, David crafted together a fake Immunity Necklace that Jay eventually discovered and used at Tribal Council. (Sadly, Jeff Probst told him it was a fake and the real-estate agent was sent packing.)
When the moment played out on TV, the entire cast gave David a rousing and well-deserved round of applause, which caused the TV writer to light up. All's fair in love and Survivor, right?
