SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah man is the new winner of "Survivor: China."

Todd Herzog, a 22-year-old from Pleasant Grove, was named the winner of the hit reality-television show on Sunday, winning $1 million.

Herzog is a former Southwest Airlines flight attendant and restaurant waiter. He's also considered one of the craftiest players to star in the show. He was voted the winner by a jury of the last seven contestants booted from the game.

Herzog is not the first Utahn to make it to the finals in the show that launched the reality-competition TV craze.

In late spring 2002, then-21-year-old Neleh Dennis, of Layton, made it to the final two in the third-season "Survivor: Marquesas" but lost out by one vote.
