New York: The tribe has spoken, naming cattle rancher James "J.T." Thomas Jr. the sole "Survivor."
The 24-year-old country boy prevailed over New Yorker Stephen Fishbach on Sunday's season finale. He will bring home the $1 million check and bragging rights to Samson, Ala., where he operates a cattle-ranching business.
The winner was chosen by a seven-member jury of "Survivor" peers.
The 18th edition of the CBS castaway competition was set in the rugged interior of Brazil, where 16 players congregated when the season began.
