Rob Mariano Talks About Winning 'Survivor' (VIDEO)

Rob and Amber on 'Survivor'Rob Mariano finally won something last night when his was the last torch left lit on 'Survivor.' Until then, Rob's wife Amber was the only 'Survivor' winner in the household. (They also lost as a couple on 'Amazing Race 7.') Today on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS), Mariano talked about how it wasn't really the $1 million purse that motivated him to win, it was more a matter of being able to stand tall in his own house.

"For the past seven years, I've had to hear it in my own house," said Mariano. "It wasn't so much about the money -- she's getting the check anyway. But now I'm at least on [a] level playing field with my wife when it comes to winners in the 'Survivor' household."

Mariano had led Amber to believe he'd been voted off in the final four, keeping the result a secret since filming finished in September. The couple has two daughters together. With all that prize money, neither should have to worry about college, and they'll be free to star in whatever reality competition still exists in 10 or 15 years.
