Gay Mormon A “Survivor”

Mitt Romney isn’t the only Mormon making headlines! A big queer congratulations to 22-year old homo-Mormo Todd Herzog, who won Survivor: China. And all it took was a bit of deceit!

Todd Herzog, a longtime fan of Survivor, won the CBS reality show’s $1 million prize after 39 days of lying and scheming.

“I wasn’t the strongest. I wasn’t the smartest,” Herzog said during the finale. “But I was definitely the most strategic.”

The 22-year-old flight attendant from Pleasant Grove, Utah, bested his Survivor: China allies Courtney Yates, a 26-year-old waitress from New York, and Amanda Kimmel, a 23-year-old hiking guide and former beauty queen from Los Angeles.

“I knew that the second that I got out there that, no matter what it took, I would do everything that I possibly could to be sitting right here,” Herzog said after the votes were revealed.

That meant teaming up with Kimmel on the first day of the competition and aligning himself with both weaker and stronger players to deflect any attention away from himself.

“I can’t believe it worked,” he said.

Three cheers for money-hungry manipulation!!

      Let’s just hope he shows more discipline in handling his new wealth than Richard Hatch. At least, if he ends up in prison, he will have some experience in manipulating a mean mf into protecting him.

      It’s the first time someone I picked from the beginning — gay, straight, man, woman — actually won.

      Congratulations !

      Winning this game is tough – and it is good to see a gay man who is not a “fitness freak / model” like JP Calderone get some press.
