Crafty bridal shop owner Kim Spradlin crowned winner of 'Survivor: One World'
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' "Survivor: One World" should have probably just been called "Survivor: Kim's World."
Kim Spradlin not only won the CBS reality competition's $1 million grand prize Sunday, the crafty 29-year-old bridal shop owner from San Antonio, Texas, also brought the alliance that she helped form at the game's outset to the final tribal council.
The jury ultimately voted for Spradlin over her allies, 33-year-old high school teacher Sabrina Thompson of New York and 26-year-old medical saleswoman Chelsea Meissner of Charleston, S.C.
Spradlin secured her place among the final three contestants on the 24th edition of "Survivor" by winning four individual immunity challenges, including the final two physical competitions, which ousted 29-year-old career consultant Christina Cha of Los Angeles and 25-year-old special education teacher Alicia Rosa of Chicago from the 39-day contest.
