After outwitting, outplaying and outlasting his fellow castaways for several months, Todd Herzog was crowned the ultimate winner of Survivor: China during a live broadcast from L.A. And OK! was there to ask the 22-year-old Utah-native just how he plans on spending his hard-earned million-dollar prize. “I’m going to enjoy that money!" the flight attendant tells OK!. "I’m going to go to Disneyland, buy a car, get a Merry Christmas for my family, invest and go back to school.”
Todd, the second openly gay champ of the CBS reality hit, earned his victory by being simultaneously backstabbing and charming. “I would say I’m just me," Todd explains. "I don’t try to be somebody else. I’m proud of that. If people don’t like me, they can kiss my butt.”
Todd’s advice for future contestants?: “I would honestly say never give up. I auditioned three times and the third time was the charm. I made it. As long as you keep trying, you will make it. It was my dream. I’m so proud to be here. It was magical. As cheesy as it sounds, this is something that I’ve always wanted.”
The resilient winner says that the first thing he did when getting home from China was to chow down. “I got four Snickers bars and I dipped them in peanut butter and rolled them in M&Ms and ate all four within about five minutes." But he wasn’t done just yet: "Then I ate an entire can of Pringles, half of a pizza, and seven cups of coffee, followed by a bowl of chocolate ice cream.”
