'Survivor' castaways receive $200,000 from singer Sia after Season 43 finale

Three Survivor 43 castaways have been awarded cash prizes totaling $200,000 from pop star and longtime Survivor fan Sia Kate Isobelle Furler.

Sia recently handed out her “Sia Award” in different cash amounts to her three favorite Survivor 43 players: fourth-place finisher Jesse Lopez, third-place finisher Owen Knight, and Ryan Medrano, who was the tenth person voted out of the game and the third member of the jury.

“The Sia Award is a beautiful gesture, and it comes straight from Sia’s heart,” Jeff Probst told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s all her. It’s very fun to be a witness to her process.”

EW obtained videos of Sia FaceTiming with each of the deserving Survivor castaways to deliver her good news.

Sia gave Jesse, who was defeated by Survivor 43 winner Mike Gabler at the final fire-making challenge, a whopping $100,000 for his wife and family.

“I was devastated,” Sia told Jesse via FaceTime about his loss.

“And I really think you deserved to win, and I just think you played the most epic, sneaky, wonderful game in the whole world. Killer. [Playing Cody Assenmacher’s idol] was the most epic move I’ve ever seen… I’m so impressed and I’m so into how much you love your family, and I’m so into where you came from.”
