Cedar Rapids, IA, police investigator Sarah Lacina has won $1 million on the TV reality show "Survivor: Game Changers."
The events depicted on the show occurred last summer in Fiji, but the winner wasn't announced until Wednesday night on the season finale.
“I think we’re gonna build a home and put money away for retirement. We’re not splurging, we’re not buying cars. People go, ‘Isn’t there one thing you want?’ I go, ‘No, there really isn’t.’ We’re pretty simple people. Maybe I’ll get a cleaning lady,” she said with a laugh.
Lacina told People, she also plans to give 10% of the prize to her church.
Cedar Rapids Police Chief Wayne Jerman said Lacina showed the same commitment on the show as she does as a member of the force.
“Sarah is an outstanding officer who showed a tremendous will to succeed and understanding of the game,” he said. “This commitment is something that we see consistently displayed through her work at the Cedar Rapids Police Department. It’s great to see her hard work pay off in a million ways on the ‘Survivor: Game Changers’ series.”
