Rancher Wins Survivor

The tribe speaks, a new `Survivor' wins big money
By ERIN CARLSON – 18 hours ago

NEW YORK (AP) — The tribe has spoken, naming cattle rancher James "J.T." Thomas Jr. the sole "Survivor."

The 24-year-old country boy prevailed over New Yorker Stephen Fishbach on Sunday's season finale, claiming the $1 million check and bragging rights.

Thomas, who operates a cattle-ranching business in Samson, Ala., wept tears of joy after hearing the result.

"I can't help it," he said at the post-game special, aired live from New York. "I'm happy — it's probably the happiest I've ever been in my life, obviously." Read More

We know that ranchers have always been survivors in life, but now a rancher has shown that he is the ultimate survivor in reality TV. Hopefully Thomas can use some of his new found fame to promote agriculture along the way.
