Rupert lines up endorsements, merch; Kathy says Rich had matches in his butt.
After winning $1 million during Survivor All-Stars‘ America’s Tribal Council, Rupert Boneham tells TV Guide that he still plans to pay off his mother’s house, and also fund his charity Kids Help. Earlier, he said he’d use a quarter of his winnings for the organization. He’s also going to use his fame to rake in more cash: He’s endorsing and making appearances for Flagstar Bank 500 and Galyans Sports & Outdoor stores, the Indianapolis Star reports. Rupert also has signed on with three 20-something men who “are in charge of merchandising for Boneham,” according to the Star-Telegram. If you’re desperate for a Rupert for President bumper sticker, or a “Got Rupert?” t-shirt, visit … Meanwhile, fellow all-star Kathy says that Richard Hatch smuggled matches on to the show. In his ass. In their fourth item, Rush and Molloy quote Kathy Vavrick-O’Brien, who said, “Richard smuggled matches on to the island in a vial [inside his person].” Not sure if they replaced a more graphic description with that bracketed “inside his person,” but this either confirms or reiterates earlier rumors. And not one to be left out of criticizing Richard, Shii Ann tells Rush and Molloy that he has a small penis.
