Bob Crowley, Season 17 (Gabon - Earth's Last Eden
): The oldest person to win "Survivor," Bob returned home to Maine to much fanfare. He received a plaque for his accomplishment and was also honored with Crowley Day. He retired from teaching shortly after winning, saying that he wanted to focus his attention on travels. In 2009, he published a book called "Making Waves: The Stories of Maine's Bob Crowley" but was forbidden by producers from talking about his experience on the show in the book.
