The 29-year-old bridal shop owner from San Anotnio, TX won the CBS reality competition show and walked away with the grand prize on May 13 — read on to find out what else she won!

Kim Spradlin is one happy lady! The Texas native beat out other contestants on Survivor: One World’s season finale like high school teacher Sabrina Thompson, and medical sales rep Chelsea Meissner.

Not only did Kim win, she also won the most viewer votes which nabbed her an extra $100K — this woman made bank!

When asked about her win, Kim said: “I strategized until I was blue in the face!” That’s clearly true!

Let’s just say the challegnes were definitely tricky and tough. There was a balance beam, a bunch of puzzle pieces and a cargo net. Then the puzzle will give them the combination to a lock they have to open.

Survivor host Jeff Probst said that Kim was definitely the right winner in this battle of the sexes.

“Kim was great at the social game,” Jeff said. “So many faces and great at reading a situation and equally good at stopping a disaster before it starts.”

At the end of the finale, Jeff announced that the upcoming 25th season would be titled Survivor: Philippines and would feature three tribes as well as three returning contestants that previously removed from the game for medical concerns — sounds exciting!
