Sia Donates 100k to Survivor Candidate

Sia surprised one of the “Survivor” finalists at the show’s live finale on Wednesday, and gifted him $100,000 for his animal rights activism.

According to the Huffington Post, while Tai Trang, a 51-year-old gardener from San Francisco, was chatting with Jeff Probst on stage, they heard a voice coming from the audience. Turns out, “Chandelier” singer Sia wanted to say that she was a fan of Trang’s and his devotion to animals, and gave him $50,000 for himself and another $50,000 to give to the animal charity of his choice.

Trang made it into the final three of season 32, and during his stint on the show saved a chicken from slaughter, adopting it as his own and giving him the name Mark. Apparently, that melted Sia’s heart.

“I’m speechless,” Trang said as he hugged Sia.

“RT if you love that crazy moment showered Tai with an enormous surprise at the !” the official “Survivor” Twitter page tweeted shortly after the surprise.

Michele Fitzgerald, a 24-year-old bartender from Freehold, New Jersey, won the title of “Sole Survivor” and the $1 million prize in the live vote reveal, broadcast from the CBS lot in Studio City, California, on Wednesday night.
