Survivor Winner Can Buy a Starter Home

Written by

I've watched every one season of Survivor, but never pay much attention to the contestants backgrounds. So imagine my surprise when I'm watching the finale and the camera pans on the crowd in San Mateo cheer for Yul Kwon's victory. For those that missed it, he was an ideal competitor. He always had the right thing to say and could work himself out of any jam.

What did winning the big prize on a national prime time show get Mr. Kwon? He'll probably take home $600,000 after taxes. In San Mateo, he could choose between a 1400 sq. foot condo or a 1200 sq foot house. I get the feeling that he'll do okay though:

"After graduating from Yale Law School, he clerked for a federal judge on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, was a legislative aide to Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, and worked as a consultant for McKinsey & Company and joined the business strategy group at Internet search firm Google."

  1. I was pulling for Yul to win from day one. Guess it’s the Stanford love….;). Given how sharp the guy is, he could already be living in a house. Maybe he’ll just have to upgrade!

    I didn’t realize he was local until the awards show. I’m pretty sure he has a house, but that didn’t make for an exciting post.

    I was actually rooting for Ozzie. I thought he played equally well, but could use the money more. That’s been a factor in the past.
