Walmart Sticks With Adam Richman After Instagram Tirade

Walmart Sticks With Adam Richman After Instagram Tirade


The megastore keeps Richman’s ad campaign after controversy

Adam Richman has been the face of Walmart meat advertisements since Spring.

Walmart has decided to keep Adam Richman, the spokesperson for their new steak and ground beef line, in its advertising campaign following his social media controversy. In the advertisements, which run on both YouTube and national television, Richman doles out advice on how to cook, serve, and eat meat.

Walmart’s decision may come as a surprise to some, since the megastore immediately dropped dropped Paula Deen following her controversy. At the moment, Walmart has made no comment on the decision to keep Richman on.

Walmart’s decision comes on the heels of Richman being dropped from the Travel Channel, which announced earlier this week that it was postponing Adam Richman’s new show, Man Finds Food. The announcement followed controversy on Instagram where Richman used offensive language with one follower, and suggested that another commit suicide.

The show’s future is still uncertain. A CNN article revealed that the network has decided to postpone Man Finds Food indefinitely. However, the show’s team has shown on its Facebook page that they remain hopeful for a release date soon.


Pumpkin Patch at McKee Ranch

This past weekend we had good old fashioned family fun at McKee Ranch in Las Vegas. They have an annual​​ pumpkin patch where family’s pay $20-which goes to the care of the rescued farm animals, and in return receive entry to the ranch, carrots to feed the animals, a free pumpkin, and a free hayride.

McKee Ranch has horses to feed, pony rides, face painting, a train ride, pumpkin painting, cookie decorating and an area for LaLa Photography to take photos of your littles on the ranch.

My boys loved riding the rocking horses like cowboys, doing the corn maze, and taking the train ride. I had fun taking photos on my own, however last year I did do the LaLa Photography Photos and I’ll share them below-they are gorgeous! It’s a great way to spend a fall day with your family in Las Vegas.

Here are my photos from last year with La La Photography.

McKee Ranch is located at: 8982 Dean Martin Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89139. They have Christmas at the ranch coming up after Thanksgiving so be sure to check it out!

How Survivor Winners Have Spent, Saved or Wasted Their $1 Million Prize

CBS

They can outwit. They can outplay. They can outlast. But can they overspend?

There are many reasons go on Survivor these days: they want to test their limits, they're a super-fan who has grown up watching the show, they want to meet new people and expand their world, they want to be on tv. and they might just want to earn $1 million in 39 days.

The CBS reality juggernaut is set to crown the Sole Survivor of its 38th season on Wednesday, May 15, with Rick Devens, Victoria Baamonde, Julie Rosenberg, Gavin Whitson and Lauren Oɼonnell all still in the running, along with a TBD returning player from the Edge of Extinction.

While viewers have yet to learn which of these castaways will join the elite group of Survivor winners and as they wait for Jeff Probst to read the jury's final votes, we thought itɽ be nice to take a quick trip down memory lane and check in with all of the past winners to see how they decided to spend their hard-earned $1 million grand prize.

There are a few cautionary tales (Here's looking at you, OG Survivor winner Richard Hatch!), many smart saver, a lot of charitable causes and some serious spenders.

Survivor's first sole winner has almost become one of its most infamous, as the corporate trainer was a polarizing figure thanks to his arrogance, ruthless gameplay and fondness for walking around camp nude during the inaugural season in 2000.

After he was the first to outwit, outplay and outlast, Richard became a TV personality and radio host, and eventually returned for another shot at $1 million in Survivor All-Stars. (He also was on Celebrity Apprentice and The Biggest Loser).

In 2005, he was accused of tax evasion as he never paid the taxes on his $1 million prize and the appearance fees he received following his win. While he tried to claim CBS had told him they would foot the bill, he was sentenced to 51 months in prison in 2006. After he was released in May 2009, he was ordered back to jail for tax violation after he didn't refile his taxes for 2000 and 2001.

After winning the second season, set in the Australian Outback, life went pretty much back to normal for Tina.

"My life hasn't really changed," the then-nurse and motivational speaker told the TV Guide Network, though she did reveal she built her dream cabin in North Carolina, and in 2006, she published a book, Out Live, Out Laugh, Out Love. She also became a spokeswoman for the National Arthritis Foundation and an advocate of adoption.

She returned for two more seasons, getting voted off first during All-Stars and competing with her daughter during Blood vs. Water. She also competed on The Amazing Race.

"Survivor to me was just another experience, but it was an experience that allowed me to go do a lot of other fun things that I would have never got to do," she said in 2018. "My life is basically what you see. I live here in the woods. I bike, swim, kayak, motorcycle, anything I want to do, just take your pick. And then I play, and travel."

The season four Sole Survivor basically went right back to her normal life after he 39 days in Marquesas.

"Survivor changed my life very little," she said during the TV Guide Network Survivor Winners special. "I say that because my husband I both chose to not allow it to change our lives. I still shop at Walmart."

Still, Vecepia managed to land her own local TV show and traveled as a motivational speaker.

"It's been a really, really good ride," she said.

The former professional soccer player was a fan-favorite during season three, ultimately going on to win over the jury, too. He returned in All-Stars, but didn't have as much luck in his second appearance.

After returning from his win in 2002, Ethan co-founded Grassroot Soccer, combining his love of soccer with charity work, helping raise money and awareness to fight HIV/AIDs in Africa.

In 2009, Ethan was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, and battled a second bout two years later. After receiving a stem cell transplant from his brother, Ethan became cancer-free.

After his 10-year relationship with fellow Survivor winner Jenna Morasca (more on her in a second!) ended, Ethan found love with interior designer Lisa Heywood. The couple married in 2016, with his rep telling E! News, "It was a beautiful celebration of true love and life."

And when the couple announced their engagement, Ethan said, "This is the reason I survived cancer twice. to meet Lisa and start a beautiful and healthy new life together."

The soft-core porn stud turned used-car salesman (the USA's top one at the time of his season BTW) is one of the franchise's most polarizing and controversial figures--on and especially off the island.

After winning Survivor: Thailand, Brian was arrested in 2006 on misdemeanor battery and animal cruelty charges after his then-wife Charmaine Costigan called the police claiming he had shot a puppy with a bow and arrow. This came after Charmaine was arrested for spousal abuse after allegedly smacking him in the nose in 2002 just ahead of his season's finale airing.

"I don't think he's ever adapted to real life since then," Charmaine told the Journal-Constitution of the impact Brian's time on the show had on him following his arrest. "He thinks he can do anything. He thinks he's invincible." They divorced later that year, with Brian going on to marry Courtney Heidik.

Brian, one of the least likable winners ever, spent a large portion of his money on sports cars, according to the TV Guide Network special in 2009.

The swimsuit model and college student was just 21 when she was crowned the sole Survivor of season six, which included her infamous decision to get naked for some peanut butter. (Relatable, tbh!) She is still the youngest female player to ever win the game.

Aside from the check for $1 million, Jenna also received another prize during her finale: a new beau in season three winner Ethan, with the winning duo going on to date for 10 years before splitting in 2013.

"It is with much consideration and a heavy heart that we are announcing that after 10 years of a loving relationship, the decision was made to move on without each other," a rep for the reality couple told E! News at the time. "We will carry with us the memories of a relationship grounded in love, laughter, support and friendship."

After taking time off from school (though she eventually returned and graduated with a degree in psychology), Jenna went on to host some shows for TV Guide Network and appeared in several movies. She and Ethan also competed on The Amazing Race and starred on their own show, Everyday Health.

Jenna was invited back to All-Stars but ended up quitting the show to be with her mother who was battling cancer. Her mom ended up passing away eight dates after she returned home.

In early 2018, Jenna was arrested for a DUI and drug possession after allegedly biting a police officer after being treated for an apparent overdose. According to the Pennsylvania police report, the SUV she was driving possesses a vanity license plate that reads "AMAZON," likely a reference to her season, Survivor: Amazon.

After the incident, Jenna broke her silence on Twitter, writing to her followers, "Been a long time. I'm back and better than ever. Jenna 4.0 version."

The player so nice she won twice! The former army specialist and mom of two is the only castaway to ever win two seasons, netting $2 million in the process. (She returned for a third time, but didn't win Game Changers, voted out pre-merge by her fellow competitors.)

Despite her double-win record (winning season seven [Pearl Islands] and season 20 [Heroes. vs. Villains]), Sandra's life didn't change all that much.

"Everything else is the same," she said during the 2009 TV Guide Network Survivor winner special. "I still stop in stores like Walmart, K-Mart, I clip coupons and I go to the matinee."

Sandra still lives with her husband in North Carolina, and one of her daughters recently graduated from college.

Two winners under one roof talk about the ultimate reality TV power couple.

Boston Rob became one of Survivor's most notorious players of all time, thanks to his four appearances on the show, finally winning the $1 million during Redemption Island (Season 22).

But heɽ already sort of won, falling in love with fellow Survivor (originally from The Australian Outback) and tribemate Amber during All-Stars. In the finale, Amber bested her boyfriend to take home the $1 million prize. just after he got done on one knee and proposed during the live reunion. (Who cares if some people booed and they received a lot of harsh criticism from their jury?!)

Rob and Amber competed on The Amazing Race as an engaged couple, coming in second place, before competing during the All-Stars season two years later. They got married in 2005, snagging their own shortlived reality series Rob and Amber: Against the Odds in 2007. The couple has welcomed four daughters.

After his fourth and final season resulted in a win, with Probst calling it "as close to a perfect game as anyone's played on Survivor," Boston Rob, who also snagged $100,000 after winning the viewers' vote as well, told EW he was retiring from the show.

"I accomplished everything I've ever wanted to accomplish. This time around it wasn't about the money as much as it was about the title. I don't have to hide in my own house anymore. And plus, Amber's getting a check anyway."

Some people buy houses the season 9 winner decided to build one instead.

He did admit to one splurge though, telling TV Guide Network, "As soon as I won the game, I did go out and buy me a Harley. It is something I've probably wanted since I was 16 or 17. I was never financially secure enough to do so, so that was my first purchase."

Aside from that though, he returned to his pre-Survivor job, looking forward to eventual retirement and post-retirement travel.

"Everyone said my life would change, but life returned to normal," the Ohio native told People. "I work as a project inspector for the Department of Transportation. I have the same friends, live in the same town and am really happy with where I am."

The firefighter from Long Island was crowned the winner of season 10 after playing one of the most solid games in Survivor history, managing to win an impressive and record number of individual immunity idols (5) while remaining pretty damn likable he's even one of host Jeff Probst's picks for his favorite winners of all-time. Tom, who went on to become a motivational speaker, returned as a hero during Heroes vs. Villains, but was ultimately voted out 5th.

After his $1 million win, Tom retired from the fire department and went into the insurance business in New York City, selling life and disability insurance. "Everything that has come my way afterwards has just been a blessing," he said during a 2009 TV Guide Network special.

A stealthy player, Danni flew under-the-radar to win Survivor's 11th season.

The former Miss Kentucky USA and model went on to marry former NFL player Casey Wiegmann, and the couple has two baseball-playing sons, Bo and Stone. The family still resides in Kansas City, with Danni saying, "I'm a country girl so I had to be close to the sticks. I literally travel every weekend for competitive baseball."

Danni also started her own clothing line, Sideline Chic, worked as a sport reporter and more recently became a children's book author.

"Winning a million dollars is wonderful, of course, but I still live a very normal life," she told People.

After the yogi won Survivor: Panama, he saw the money as an opportunity to pursue his ultimate passion: music. "It's given me a freedom certainly, where I get to explore what I love," he said on the TV Guide Network special back in 2009. (He also revealed he bought cars for his father and brother, as well as started a Russian hat company.)

Thanks to his time on the show, he was able to form a friendship with singer-songwriter Damien Rice, who became a mentor to him. Aras went on to release music under the name Odd Us.

But he later admitted to struggling with his newfound fame from the show. (He returned to compete once again in Blood vs. Water alongside his older brother.)

"We all have our personal barriers. After I won Survivor, I got really depressed. It was just too much," he told Irvine News in 2012. "Too much exposure to the elements, to myself, to the world. I couldn't vibrate that high for that long." he eventually opened up a yoga studio in Cape Town, South Africa, and in 2015, he married model Christy Petersen and they have two children.

After winning one of the series' most controversial seasons ever, Cook Islands, which began with the castaways separated into tribes by race, Yul has gone down as one of Survivor's most beloved (and nicest) contestants of all-time.

"I feel really lucky. I think since Survivor I've had a lot of opportunities to do things I've really wanted to do," he said during the 2009 TV Guide Network special. "I've worked with a lot of cancer organizations, leukemia organization and bone marrow organizations to try and increase the number of people who become registered one marrow donors." Yul also started a non-profit that helped victims of domestic abuse

Following his turn on Survivor, Yul became a TV host and a lecturer for the FBI, while also opening up several Red Mango frozen yogurt shops in San Francisco after discovering the company when he was looking for a healthy dessert option once he returned from the game (and gained 25 pounds).

Oh, and he also found a lot more than hidden idols during his time on the show: "I also met my future wife, Sophie, through my tribemate, Brad Virata," he told EW. They've gone on to welcome two children.

The Survivor: Fiji winner has the distinct honor of being the franchise's first-ever unanimous final tribal council vote-getter in the season 14 finale.

After winning, Earl used some of the money to travel, visiting 35 different countries rather than buy material items. "I wanted this life experience because that's priceless," he explained. Earl decided to make a return trip to Fiji, too, saying, "I went back to Fiji after winning because I wanted to experience the more luxurious side!"

He also used the money to create the Earl Cole Fund with the Perthes Kids Foundation for Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, a bone disease he had as a child.

The flight attendant ended up taking home the $1 million prize during Survivor: China and planned on seeing the world with it, but he publicly struggled with alcoholism after his time on the CBS reality hit.

A frequent guest on the Dr. Phil Show, he made headlines in 2017 when he alleged to Stat and The Boston Globe that the producers of the show supplied him with alcohol and Xanax before carrying him out onto the stage during his infamous 2013 appearance, when he blew a .5 on a Breathalyzer test. (He appeared again in 2016, revealing he had relapsed.)

A rep for the show denied the claims, telling E! News, "The Stat article does not fairly or accurately describe the methods of Dr. Phil, the TV show, or its mission to educate millions of viewers about drug and alcohol addiction. The show does not give drugs or alcohol to its guests and any suggestions to the contrary is errant nonsense. "

During his Reddit AMA in 2018, Todd said, "I'm grateful in a lot of ways for the show. For getting me help in the nicest places in the country. That's a gift right there. There are some things about the show that I don't like, and that I don't think are real. … I should have been in the hospital, in that sense. There should not be liters of vodka in my dressing room."

Following his win in 2007, Todd, who once dated fellow castaway Spencer Duhm, became a waiter in Orlando, telling People in 2012, "Customers say, 'I know you from somewhere,' but I never tell them from where. They're gonna leave a lousy tip if they know I won a million dollars."

Now "happy and sober," Todd revealed in his Reddit AMA that he manages a movie theater.

One of the most popular winners (or players, really) of all-time, Parvati used her looks to her advantage during her second season, ultimately netting the grand prize in Micronesia (Season 16) by uniting the women in the Black Widow Brigade alliance.

"Parvati represents the power of the beautiful woman, and how they can wield that power in a social environment," Probst said. "What's interesting about Parvati is watching her grow. She started as somebody who only had ɿlirt' as a tool. By the time she won the game, she evolved into a young woman who knew she could use her looks to a certain degree, but now had to focus on how to relate to people and get them to trust her."

After her celebrated win, she donated $50,000 to Knockout For Girls, combining her love for boxing and charity. She also took a trip to Peru, with plans to travel even more.

Parvati, who went on to become the runner-up of Heroes vs. Villains, also got love in addition to money from her Survivor experience: In 2017 she wed John Fincher of Survivor Samoa and they welcomed their first child in July 2018.

Since her time playing the game, Parvati has become a yoga teacher and personal development and business coach, per her Instagram.

At 57, Bob (and his signature bow-tie) was the oldest person to win Survivor, taking home the grand prize in season 17.

Because of his age, the rest of the castaways underestimated the high school teacher, who notched an impressive number of immunity wins. In addition to his $1 million, he also won $100,000 from the "player of the season" poll.

The proud Maine native, who has since retired from teaching, used his winnings to start Maine Forest Yurts with his family, which offers people an eco-friendly, camping experience in his beloved home state. He also started a non-profit, Durham Warriors, that covers the costs for disabled veterans, active duty military and their families, and other non-profits to stay at Maine Forest Yurts.

The cattle rancher from Alabama unanimously won his first season (18, Tocantins), going on to play in two more seasons (Heroes vs. Villains, during which he made one of the dumbest moves in the show's history, and Game Changers).

"I'm going to keep working…keep supporting myself by managing the cattle ranch," he said of his plans for the prize money in the 2009 TV Guide special. "Hopefully use this money and invest it properly and set up college funds for all my nieces and nephews."

Two years later, he revealed that he bought new cars for his sisters, gave his parents some money and then invested the majority of the remaining sum.

In 2015, J.T. married his longtime girlfriend, with fellow castaway and best friend Stephen Fishbach officiating the ceremony.

The 21-year-old surfer became the youngest player to ever win Survivor when he took home the grand prize during season 21, which was Old vs. Young.

"I'm starting a production company. We're just gonna do 45-minute short films," "Fabio" said of his plans for the money immediately after his finale. "Iɽ like to do a little bit of stand-up, I think itɽ be really fun. I've written like 60 poems. Some really cool stuff." (We're not sure the production company ever panned out, be he was a drummer in the band, Space Funk Odyssey.)

Shortly after his win, the male model was arrested for skateboarding under the influence in Santa Monica in 2011. And, because of his newfound cash-flow, he was released after posting $37,000 and was promptly picked up from prison in a stretch limo, filled with his friends and some beer, a pretty hilarious flex.

On the Survivor After Show, he revealed he bought a farm for his dad and a condo for himself.

The witty and blunt medical student came into season 23 with one goal: win $1 million.

"I have been bragging to friends for way too long about how easy Survivor is and how good I would be," the then 22-year-old told CBS ahead of the game. "I would like to have the freedom in Med. School to choose my specialty based on passion and not money and the potential to more quickly pay my debts."

And that's just what she did when she was crowned Sole Survivor, eventually graduating from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2017.

During Survivor: One World, Kim ended up pocketing $1.1 million, as she also named the Player of the Season by the fans, which wasn't much a surprise given her sheer dominance and impressive game-play throughout season 24.

As the bridal shop owner had not grown up with a lot of money, Kim said she was excited to be able to be generous with her family when it came to spending her prize money.

"I definitely have some bills to pay, some small bridal shops I'm excited to put some money into. And spruce up a little bit. I'm going to have some fun with it," she told EW. "I didn't come from a ton of money, so just getting myself set up in a better way — that's really appealing to me. And getting to be generous with it with my family and friends."

Since Survivor, Kim has gotten married and had three children, and started an interior design business. One of her biggest clients? Fellow Survivor castaway and best friend Chelsea Meissner, who is now a cast member on Southern Charm.

The unlikely winner of season 25 managed to overcome a pretty sizable losing streak (losing every immunity challenge and going to every post-merge tribal council) to take home the $1 million prize.

After joining the show for the experience, the sex therapist admitted she didn't have any major plans for the cash in an interview with THR.

"I'm going to take my time and breathe, and then make a lot of decisions," she said. "My husband and I are going to sit down and make a lot of decisions. We have a 9-year-old daughter who, first and foremost, needs a college fund that is fully loaded and taken care of. We've got nieces and nephews. I mean $1 million in Iowa could be really life-changing. We just want to take our time."

Known as just "Cochran," he first competed during season 23, before coming back to win Survivor's 26th season. A massive fan-favorite, he's Jeff Probst's favorite winner of all-time, with the executive producer and host explaining to EW, "I'm going to pick Cochran, and the reason I'm picking Cochran is if I just look at the show from afar, Cochran fulfilled the poster, the premise, when we started—which was, on any given day anything can happen."

Cochran was a Survivor super-fan (He even sent out a newsletter in high school all about the show), so the $1 million prize wasn't exactly his No. 1 reason for competing.

"It's going to be a lot of boring stuff it's going to be invested, probably a down payment on an apartment, and I'm thinking of a little impulse purchase," he said of his plans for the prize money in an interview with THR. "Nothing extravagant that I'm going to spend my money on. When I get a new apartment, I'll probably … soup it up? Soup it out? I don't even know the lingo. I'll probably make it as high-tech as possible, a lot of wireless gizmos and stuff. And I kind of want to get a Segway, as lame as that it. I don't know how often Iɽ use it, but Iɽ like to just ride around on one. Even if it's just doing circles in my living room."

Following his time on Survivor and graduating from Harvard Law School, Cochran ended up becoming a TV writer, working on CBS sitcoms such as The Millers and Kevin Can Wait.

After two previous attempts, Tyson was crowned the winner of Survivor: Blood vs. Water, which also found his girlfriend Rachel Fougler competing alongside him.

Tyson didn't have huge plans for his prize money, telling ET, "I will probably try to wisely invest it and make it last as long as possible so that I can kick back a little bit."

But the former professional cyclist did admit, "I don't care about fancy cars, maybe a bicycle. I'm more of a bicycle guy than a car guy. The only reason I would buy a car is to make my car guy friends jealous."

Though she was voted out of the game early, Rachel also got a happy ending, just on a different reality show when Tyson proposed to her during the season two finale Of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. Tyson's Tocantins co-star Stephen Fishbach officiated their wedding in February 2015 and the couple has welcomed two children since swapping vows.

From the start of Cayagan, it was clear the New Jersey cop was going to be a major player in the season and the franchise. While he ultimately won the $1 million, his hopes of becoming a two-time winner were dashed when it was voted out second in Game Changers.

Still, the season 28 champ/villain to many viewers for his tactics (He was even booed during the live finale!) won and had responsible plans for his massive paycheck, with the father of two telling The Hollywood Reporter, "The first thing I'm going to do is set up a college fund for my kids, because education is huge."

He did have one frivolous purchase: a pink chandelier, which his wife requested. "That's what my wife wants," he told People after the finale. "She can pick it out at Home Depot or somewhere like that. Maybe I'll need to buy a house to go around it."

After competing on The Amazing Race twice and never winning, the fitness fanatic had better look during season 29, winning the $1 million.

"I'm going to buy my parents something really nice. I'm going to give Nadiya a nice chunk of change. And I'm going to try to be smart with it," the CrossFit coach told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm not a big spender. When I went on The Amazing Race the first time, my goal was to go to physical therapy school, so this could pay for that. And we also have dreamed of opening up a CrossFit, so it's totally possible now."

The Survivor: Worlds Apart winner was a member of the blue collar tribe, with the oil driller quickly becoming one of the group's leaders and proving to be a fierce competitor, tying the record for most individual immunity wins.

And for Mike, it was more about his legacy than the money, telling TV Guide, "More than a million, I got a title. And that's what I was playing for. Money comes and goes. You spend it and make it. But the title. You can't take the title."

But he did have plans for the money, using it to start a t-shirt company, Sweet T's Designs.

Post Survivor is going to be trying to take this one million dollars that CBS graciously gave to me and turn it into twenty five or thirty million, then sit back on a beach somewhere and do some spear fishing," he told TV Junkies. "Live the Survivor life but in real life."

After winning, Mike also found love: he's been dating Big Brother alum Meg Maley since 2015.

After his disappointing first outing in Season 29, he made the most of his second chance, winning Survivor: Cambodia—Second Chance, dropping the news that his wife Val Collins was pregnant just before the jury cast their final votes. It was unanimous: the firefighter and dad-to-be deserved the $1 million.

"I already gave the check to Val. She's gonna take it and do the baby's room," he said of his earnings. "I'm going to take her on vacation, but I'm going back to work."

Their son Remy Bodhi was born in December 2015, and the couple welcomed their fourth child in June 2017.

Jeremy noted he would be saving most of his Survivor money for their college tuitions, telling People, "That's the top priority. There are a lot of things that I'll do with the money, but it will be all about helping my family."

A member of the beauty tribe in season 32, which split up the castaways as Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty, the bartender didn't have major plans for her $1 million.

"I'm first going to pay off my car, and then, I don't know, maybe travel a little bit, but eventually I'm just going to save up," Michele, who went on to become a travel agent and then business development manager, told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm young right now and so that can go a long way in the future. I don't want to impulsively spend I want to make sure I put it in the right place."

She did have a bit of fun with the money though, telling EW she planned to go on a girls' trip to wine country.

Season 33's Sole Survivor was an obsessed Survivor fan who found himself in the millennial tribe in the series' Millennial vs. Gen-X face-off.

After his win, the homeless shelter manager used his $1 million to become a cancer research advocate in honor of his mother, who was diagnosed with lung cancer. He has partnered with organizations such as Stand Up 2 Cancer (donating $100,000 of his prize money), American Cancer Society and American Lung Association. Adam and his mother Susie, a fellow super-fan, applied to be on the show together for Blood vs. Water before she was diagnosed, with Adam going on to join the cast of the following season she passed away just nine months later, shortly after Adam was able to return home and tell her that he won.

"I had absolutely no idea what I was coming home to. And the thing is, she was strong throughout the entire season because they had made the decision to stop treatment," he told EW after his emotional win. "My mom did not want to pull me from the game. That was not an option in her mind. But they made the decision that if I was voted out, even if I were on the jury, that I would come home immediately. I believe that she waited for me."

Aside from donating money to the causes and charities he believed in, Adam said, "I really just don't spend a whole lot of money, but something my family has always loved to do is traveling so I will definitely use some of my winnings for that. But for the most part, that money is going to get locked away and allow me to continue to live the kind of life I want to live."

The Island of Mount Rushmore

We’ve survived – pun not intended, I promise – the off season and my dear Jeffrey is back for another season of smutty innuendo and drooling over the male castaways.

I mean, remember controversial victor Chris coming out of the water? Swoon.

While it really didn’t feel like much of an off season thanks to Survivor South Africa and Pia’s coronation of Australian Survivor last week, there is nothing like having the OG back. Particularly since this season features a giant statue dedicated to the one true queen of Survivor, Sandra and her subject Boston Rob.

So buckle in, sit back and get ready to venture to the Island of the Idols. And join me Saturday when we catch up with the first boot slash tally how many incorrect assumptions are made about the title!

Mercedes Cinnamon Dialmonds

Previously on RuPaul’s Drag Race the queens were divded into two teams to praise the diva of their choice on a shevangelical talk show. While the Britney fans werked bitch and proved stronger, team Mariah apparently was composed of queens that don’t like Mariah, or straight up hate her and want to turn her against the gays. Because it was bad. So bad that Ru couldn’t bring herself to class any of them safe, forcing a six-way lip-sync gangbang which was a total gag, except for poor Honey, since it resulted in her elimination.

The queens ruturned to the Werk Room in shock, sure that Ru is not playing and the entire cast is on notice. Everyone spoke about what they thought was going to happen, while poor Shuga broke down because she was totally sure that she was going home as Ru saved the girls one by one. Scarlet encouraged them to all take it as a wake up call, and while Silky agreed she still hoped the ‘hos would go one by one.

The next day the queens were feeling mildly better after last night before Ru arrived to announce that they will be competing in a Rachel Maddow mini-challenge, reading the news in the style of the icon. Mercedes wasn’t sure who Rachel was, though she did share her passion for goats, particularly if they are fainting and TBH, I could watch an entire episode of her talking about goats as she is a total sweetheart. Sadly she struggled through live read as did Vanjie and Ra’Jah, while Nina, Scarlet and Yvie slayed.

Nobody seemed to like pronouncing Colonel though.

Scarlet took out victory which gave her the chance to cast this week’s maxi-challenge, a Grease inspired musical on the Trump administration. And while Trump: The Rusical sounds like it will be terrible, I have hope that roasting Trump is worthy of his rage-tweets. Mercedes offered to play the lead role of Shandi, while literally everyone else knew that she could not. As such, Brooke suggested Ariel, which Scarlet quickly jumped on. Omarosa was given to Ra’Jah, Kellyanne went to fellow crypt keeper Yvie, Mercedes snatched Ivanka – who she doesn’t have a clue who she is – and Silky snatched Oprah the Teen Angel, much to her chagrin. The queens then broke up to rehearse and we learnt that Nina was given Sarah Huckabee Sanders which is perfect, as is Brooke as Ivana.

Ru ruturned to chat to the queens and we learnt that Brooke is a former ballerina, Ariel spoke about her musical theatre background and her ability to pick up choreography, while Scarlet admitted that she is a terrible dancer and is kinda sorta screwed. Vanjie continued to be charming and cuckoo, Silky admitted that she is a registered Republican … to bring down the party from the inside AND SHE IS PLAYING 5D CHESS. Oh and Shuga is playing Hillary, A’Keria snatched Stormy and Vanjie will be taking on Rosie O’Donnell which is really perfect for her. We learnt that Nina grew up in a Republican household while Ru learnt that Mercedes has come for Pearl’s gig, desperately needing to wake the fuck up. Unlike Ra’Jah who is a technically trained dancer and is ready to help out her fellow queens, which Ru pointed out she choked on last week.

The shade, the shade, the SHADE.

The queens arrived to meet dancing Deadpool on the mainstage to get down the choreography, with Scarlet admitted she dances between the sheets, Ra’Jah listed every damn style and Brooke pointed out her en pointe. Much to Ra’Jah’s rage, given she clearly doesn’t have Brooke’s skill or French training. The first group started to prepare with Yvie slaying, while Ra’Jah obviously struggled before having to admit she danced 15 years ago. Brooke and Scarlet slayed their rehearsal, despite the latter having no skill, proving that charm always helps. Silky struggled without having a count before we learnt that Yvie has a connective tissue issue which meant her joints pop out easily and Yanis told her to look after herself and I’m so grateful we don’t have Todrick, because she would be a tyrant about it. Though Yanis did destroy Ra’Jah’s ego and told her she shouldn’t have pretended to be a dancer and I LIVE.

Thankfully for Ra’Jah though, Ariel was also on struggle street and couldn’t get out of her head long enough to get the choreography.

Elimination Day arrived with her feeling slightly more confident after a night of rehearsing. We then learnt that Silky does her brows with a Sharpie and that is a really, really … thing, that we need to know. Nina shared about her college years when she received death threats for running for student government as an openly gay man. It was awful and my heart breaks that people had to go through these traumas because of closed minded, evil people. Like Trump. Mercedes was inspired by Nina’s story and decided to share a little bit about her religion, pulling the girls aside from last week’s issue to explain how the way the public treat Muslim people is why she is so scared of sharing. She reads so much hurtful rhetoric that she doesn’t feel allowed to be proud, so the girls rallied around and encouraged her to be a beacon of hope for young muslims.

Ru, Michelle and Ross were joined by Joel McHale and New York for the premiere of Trump: The Rusical and TBH, it wasn’t bad. I mean, after the scripted parodies from the last few seasons, I assumed we were in for a dumpster fire but all the queens did a good job. Scarlet slayed Betsy DeVos, Yvie was delightfully demented, Brooke slayed and Ariel brought it despite her fears. Shuga did Hillary proud, while Vanjie, Mercedes and Ra’Jah all felt flat and blended into the background. Particularly after Silky arrived as Oprah and stole the whole damn show. Well until Ginger Minj arrived as Trump and damn she was done dirty in All Stars 2 and I love her.

On the Cheeto in Chief inspired Orange Alert runway, Yvie came for Bianco Del Rio and Nina Bo’Nina Brown’s gigs as a circus clown. Plastique was a butterfly bombshell, Ra’Jah looked gorgeous, though I feel like Michelle is going to read the bodysuit. Nina served Hello Dolly realness, Scarlet looked interesting and I liked the movement of the gown while A’Keria was serving body and slayed. Silky looked stunning and soaked up literally everyone moment she could, then a few. Ariel channeled a showgirl, Mercedes too wore a bodysuit and has the wrath of Michelle coming for her, as does Vanjie. Brooke continued to serve Detox-esque drama and I live. Unlike Michelle, who got sick of dealing with Joel’s over excitement. Oh and Shuga served literal Cheeto in Chief and owned the runway.

Scarlet, Nina, Ariel, Plastique, Shuga and A’Keria were all sent to safety, wit Scarlet praised for her casting choices on the way out. The judges loved Yvie’s unexpected runway choices and thought her performance was delightful. Ra’Jah’s look was praised, though Ross felt her performance as Omarosa was forgettable and Michelle found her too likeable. Silky received universal praise for everything she did this week, while Tiffany was thrilled about Mercedes look while everyone else felt she disappeared and was just ok. Vanjie’s look was praised, though Michelle was sick of her pulling out the same look each week and everyone felt her Rosie was lifeless while Brooke was universally beloved and Tiffany loved her bone structure from Norwegia.

Yvie was ultimately declared safe, while Silky snatched the win – thanks to Scarlet, kinda – and Brooke too was deemed safe. On the flipside, Mercedes found herself in the bottom again, while Vanjie narrowly made her way to safety, while Ra’Jah was sent to the bottom. Much to her confusion. Thankfully that confusion didn’t hold her down, as she owned the lip sync from the very first bar. While Mercedes proved a formidable opponent, she lost her headpiece halfway through and she lost her focus, allowing Ra’Jah to take full control and even dance through flicking her wig off. As such, Ra’Jah was ultimately given another chance to compete, while poor Mercedes was sent from the competition and into the arms of her goats. Hopefully on the same farm as Miss Fame and her chickens.

Given Mercedes is literally the sweetest person to ever grace the mainstage this year – #MissCongenialty – she took her loss in her stride and was a total delight to hang out with backstage. We laughed, we spoke about the importance about being vigilant about one’s health – the unofficial theme of the season, cyst – and the healing power of a big sack of nuts. Like my Mercedes Cinnamon Dialmonds.

It should be exceedingly obvious by now that I have a passion about having nuts in and around my mouth, and these little babies are no exception. Sweet and spicy, they’re moorish and so so good.

Mercedes Cinnamon Dialmonds

Goodbye, Gideon :(

Last week my parents’ sweet dog Gideon passed away. His breed, Great Pyrenees, is nicknamed the Gentle Giants. That nickname perfectly describes Gideon and his precious personality (and impressive 150 lb weight). He was a happy guy – always smiling and putting his paw up for us to hold.

His happiest memories were in my parents’ backyard. Rolling around in big dirt piles and sleeping in the shade. He had lots of backyard friends – the squirrels that would taunt him as they scurried across the top of the fence, the (live) mole he carried around in his mouth until my dad rescued the rodent, the skunk that sprayed him one year on Christmas day. But his favorite times in the backyard were when we’d be out there playing with him. He played defense during many of our family backyard basketball games, ate a few of our croquet mallets, and loved catching sticks and Frisbees that we threw his way. In one of our favorite memories of him, he got stuck in the swing set. Like in a swing. Swinging and howling as his legs kicked underneath him. He earned the affectionate name of Gideon the Gideot after this incident.

I’m going home to Indiana to visit my parents this weekend and it will be the first time since my dad brought him home that Gideon won’t be there to greet me with his big goofy smile and giant white paws. A bittersweet reminder of the unconditional love that few humans can offer us but that we always have from our pets.
