May 22, 2014

New Jersey police officer Tony Vlachos was crowned the winner in last night's Survivor: Cagayan finale and ET Canada spoke to him about his victory as well as his plans for investing his $1 million prize. 

"First thing I've gotta do is buy a pink chandelier," Tony revealed in an interview following the taping of the finale. "That was the promise I made to my wife in real life. And in real life when I make a promise, I keep it."

He explained that the pink chandelier purchase was part of a promise made beforehand to his family. "And in real life when I make a promise, I keep it." He also commented on another use for the money. "Definitely a college fund. After playing the game with the brains, especially Spencer (Bledsoe), when I hear Spencer talk and I hear myself talk, I'm like, my kids need an education."

"Right now I'm a little confused. I don't know what's going on -- my wife could have been giving birth tonight after watching the show! I have no idea, I haven't talked to her, I don't have my phone with me... She couldn't make it today, she's eight months, so the doctor said you can't go, you cannot travel. So she could be in the hospital right now giving birth for all I know."
