“Survivor” Winner Donates Entire Million Dollar Prize to Veterans in Need

52-year-old heart valve specialist Mike Gabler walked away with the million bucks during last night’s “Survivor 43” finale.  But he won’t have it for long.

Gabler is donating the ENTIRE MILLION to the Veterans In Need Foundation.

He said, “There are people that need the money more.  I’m going to donate the entire prize, the entire million dollars, in my father’s name, Robert Gabler, who was a Green Beret.

“To veterans in need who [are suffering from] trauma, psychiatric problems, PTSD and to curb the suicide epidemic.  We’re going to save lives, do something good.”

Gabler got seven out of a possible eight votes.  Cassidy Clark got the remaining vote, while Owen Knight got shut out and ended up in third place.
