Sia Donates $50,000 to Tai Trang at ‘Survivor: Kaoh Rong’ Finale (VIDEO)

Survivor: Kaoh Rong just had the biggest twist of all in its season finale. Multiplatinum recording artist Sia was on-hand for the live finale, and interrupted the reunion show for an impromptu segment in which she congratulated third-place runner-up Tai Trang — by donating $50,000 to him, and another $50,000 to the animal charity of his choice!

Sia noted that Tai was an inspiration, with his authenticity and love for animals. She had planned to give him a reward of some kind if he didn’t win, since Sprint used to give away a prize for Player of the Season. When they stopped doing it, she was disappointed, and considered bringing it back herself. Hell, Sia admitted wanting to donate to Keith Nale last season, but chickened out (no pun intended!). But she wasn’t going to let the opportunity pass a second time! Tai is completely and utterly speechless, and I don’t blame him one bit. This is automatically one of my favorite moments from any Survivor reunion special in history, if not one of my favorite moments in the history of Survivor, period.
