This isn’t just a $1 million victory. Nope. For John Cochran, winning Survivor: Caramoan — Fans Vs. Favorites is a dream come true. This self-admitted, buff-collecting nerd climbed to the top and walked away from season 26 with the title of sole Survivor — something he never dreamed would be possible when he started watching the show’s first season in 2000 as a kid. I had the chance to chat with Cochran on the red carpet immediately after he was revealed as the winner during the finale in Los Angeles. In his very candid, charming manner, Cochran went in depth about making the “social suicide” decision of wearing buffs in high school, explained which buff is his favorite, described how surreal it is to win the game and dished the dirt on his relationship status. Yes, he’s single ladies. My full one-on-one red carpet interview can be found inside this article. Enjoy!
