After what many fans have called one of the worst seasons ever, Kim Spradlin walked away with the Survivor One World $1 million grand prize at Sunday night’s finale.
The 29-year-old bridal shop owner from San Antonio, Texas, was awarded the prize after her fellow contestants voted for her over other finalists Chelsea Messiner and Sabrina Thompson. Kim received seven of the jury votes to Sabrina’s two. Which obviously means Chelsea received no votes.
Kim also won the Player of the Season award of $100,000, which was voted on by fans of the show.
“At the very end of the final tribal council was the first time where I really thought I could win this,” Kim told reporters. “Up until then, I hadn’t heard the jury speak. I had no idea how mad they were going to be. And they looked really mad [throughout the season]. I didn’t think I had that great of a chance until I heard them talk.”
