Chris Daugherty, a highway construction worker from South Vienna, Ohio, about halfway between Columbus and Dayton, is the only Ohioan to win the title of Sole Survivor and the $1 million prize in the show's 44 seasons.
Daugherty outlasted 17 other contestants in the show's ninth season filmed in Vanuatu, a South Pacific Ocean nation east of Australia.
Season 44 of the series is nearing the end, with the finale airing on May 24.
Applicants are required to be at least 16 years old and have a valid U.S. or Canadian passport.
