Brian discusses spending his winnings.
Curious how Survivor Thailand winner Brian Heidik is planning to spend his $1 million prize? First, after taxes, he only has about $675,000. As CNN/Money reports, he’s hired a financial adviser to help him spread his money among “conservative investments, for retirement and tax reasons,” Brian says. In addition to his winnings, the story reports that “he hopes to earn between $100,000 and $500,000 over the next five years through product endorsements, TV and movie gigs, and new business ventures.”
