Survivor Thailand’s Brian is worth $2 million thanks to investments.

Survivor Thailand’s Brian is worth $2 million thanks to investments.
More than two years ago, Survivor Thailand winner Brian Heidik was reported to be hiring a financial advisor to help him spend his after-tax prize, about $675,000. When The Bakersfield Californian talked to him “[l]ast month, Heidik figured he was worth about $2.5 million.” The former used car salesperson and soft-core porn star’s investments now include “retirement and college accounts, municipal bonds, stocks and mutual funds, some with exposure to European markets and the emerging market in China.” The paper reports that Brian will “be co-starring in an action movie shooting this fall” and that “[h]e and his wife are working on having their second child.” Plus, “Heidik and his family have moved to Georgia, where he’s working on a pilot for a new reality TV show about hunting.”
