He's a Survivor: Wentzville Holt Grad Takes It All
Jud Birza wins $1 million on CBS show.
Wentzville Holt alumnus Jud Birza has won Survivor: Nicaragua – and the $1 million prize.
The Lake Saint Louis resident graduated from Holt in 2007. He modeled with Mother Model Management of Dardenne Prairie. Birza moved to Venice Beach, Calif., two years ago and plays drums for Space Funk Odyssey.
"Fabio," as Birza was nicknamed by the other contestants, prepared for his experience in the jungle by running on the beach and practicing survival skills, as well as studying past Survivor shows. He took a less aggressive approach to the usual alliance strategies of the other contestants, planning instead to win immunity challenges.
