In a heartfelt letter, a ‘Survivor’ winner expresses gratitude to the cast of ‘Survivor 41.’
Denise Stapley, the winner of “Survivor: Philippines,” recently took to Twitter in an “open letter” to thank the contestants of “Survivor 41” for their participation in the current season. Here’s what you need to know.
