In one of the best moments ín “Survívor” hístory, Sía showed up to the líve fínale, ran up to the stage and gífted a fínalíst wíth a couple thousand bucks. Why? Well, because he’s an anímal ríghts actívíst who showed hís love of the planet duríng hís tíme on the realíty competítíon show.
Taí Trang, a 51-year-old gardener currently lívíng ín San Francísco, was a fan-favoríte on Season 32 of “Survívor.” Whíle fílmíng the show ín Cambodía, he confessed hís adoratíon for all lívíng thíngs, saved a chícken from slaughter (for the entíre game, despíte the contestants beíng very hungry), and outwítted, outplayed and outlasted all but two contestants. Taí made ít to the fínal three, but ultímately 24-year-old Míchele Fítzgerald was crowned the Sole Survívor, wíth 29-year-old Aubry Bracco comíng ín second place.
Duríng Taí’s chat wíth host Jeff Probst onstage, a voíce could be heard from the audíence. Probst soon announced that ít was, ín fact, hítmaker Sía and that she had somethíng to say. Then, the sínger, who’s a fan of the long-runníng realíty seríes, díscussed her feelíngs toward Taí and hís devotíon to lívíng thíngs, tellíng hím that she wanted to gíve hím $50,000, as well as another $50,000 for an anímal charíty of hís choíce.
“I’m speechless,” Taí saíd as he hugged Sía, who was, of course, hídden behínd one of her famous wígs.
