'Survivor' Winner: Quitting Job for Show a Gamble

Tuesday, 22 Dec 2009 11:35 AM


The winner of the CBS reality television show "Survivor: Samoa" says she took a huge gamble by quitting her job to be on the show.

The gamble paid off Sunday for 26-year-old Natalie White of Van Buren, Ark., when it was revealed she won the competition and $1 million prize.

White had worked as a saleswoman for Teva Pharmaceuticals USA for about 15 months.

She told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Tuesday editions that she loved the job, but appearing on the show was a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" and she would've been crazy not to take it.

White says she still has the check and plans to hire an accountant but otherwise doesn't know what's in her future.

She says she plans to stay in Arkansas for now while waiting to see what opportunities may arise.
