Rupert Gets the Survivor Booby Prize

Rupert Boneham, the teddy bear from Indianapolis who was the viewer favorite during the last two Survivor games, won a $1 million consolation prize, as voted by 38 million viewers and announced during a special edition of the CBS show on Thursday night.

Three other men were the top vote-getters after the bearded Boneham: “Big Tom” Buchanan, Colby Donaldson and “Boston Rob” Mariano – who on last Sunday’s Survivor: All-Stars finale was named the runner-up to his fiancee, Amber Brkich.

There was only a long bus ride to the airport in Panama after the last tribal council for Rob and Amber, the two finalists from Survivor: All-Stars. “They were asleep and they were wasted away; I mean there was nothing left of them,” says host Jeff Probst, who rode with them. “But they were in each other’s arms and they just looked so content. I was watching them thinking, ‘This is a couple in love.’ ”
