Aras Baskouskas, the grandson of soap opera star McDonald Carrey, won Survivor's Panama edition, which aired in 2006. He was 24 then -- he's now 31, lives with his girlfriend, model Christy Peterson, and has a career as a singer-songwriter.
But there have been a lot of adventures along the way. Having only practiced yoga for four months, he ventured to South Africa and opened his own studio, contracting with a local rubber factory to provide yoga mats. After paying off his father's mortgage, he used part of his million dollar Survivor winnings to start his own business -- a Los Angeles-based Russian winter hat company called Tundra Gear.
