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.”
