Todd Herzog, a longtime fan of Survivor, claimed the 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 overcame his allies Courtney Yates and Amanda Kimmel to win the prize, becoming the 15th victor in the history of the popular show. Herzog won with four votes against Yates' two and Kimmel's one.
He's the youngest winner in the show's history.
"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.
