Brian wins Survivor Thailand.

Brian wins Survivor Thailand.
The alliance mastermind, used car salesperson, and porn star Brian Heidik won Survivor Thailand with four of the jury’s seven votes, beating Clay Jordan. Brian won immunity twice and along with Clay and Jan, ousted Helen after telling her she was safe, leading to a memorable final tribal council speech from her. She still gave her vote to Brian, however, as did Jan and Ted, who called Clay a “redneck.” The Chuay Jai tribe members all voted for Clay except Jake, giving Brian the fourth vote.
