Heir followers saw Sophie Clarke called the victorious one of the CBS actuality show's Twenty third period Saturday night time.

Host Mark Probst offered the 22-year-old medical college scholar with a $1 thousand check out during the stay finish.

Clarke defeat runner-up -- and three-time contestant -- Ben "Coach" Go and third-place finisher Edward Destrade to take home the headline of "sole Heir."

After the finish, the top six runners up -- who also involved three-time competition Oscar "Ozzy" Lusth, victorious one of the $100,000 fan preferred award; John Nelson; and Brandon Hantz -- contributed techniques of the Twenty third period with The Artist Writer. Among the information learned on the red carpet:

-- Hantz was harm by his dad Russell Hantz's tough judgments of his action. Russell Hantz -- a three-time competition who has been known as one of the show's most devious bad guys -- said during the stay finish that he imagined his nephew "did everything wrong" while enjoying the sport of Heir. The newer Hantz says he "disagreed" with his uncle's review but said his thoughts were "disheartening." "I still really like my dad, but I'm very pleased of the way I performed." he says. He involved that when he tried out for the display, he described in his try out movie that Russell Hantz was his dad and considers that offered him a leg up to make one more cut. As for Probst's idea that the duo come again and have fun with Heir again on different communities, Brandon Hantz is all for it. "I look ahead to seeing Russell on the region and seeing who is the larger Hantz in the loved ones." He involved that his dad is "strategically the best gamer who's ever unquestionably movie activity, but fairly I didn't believe the fact with the way he performed."

-- Lusth and Go had only times to choose whether to contend in the display. Lusth got the telephone from manufacturers about three months before shooting began, while Go gotten his invite only per weeks time and a 50 % before. For both, it was a no-brainer to join for a third go-round. "There was no doubt," Go says. Meanwhile, Lusth -- who is beginning a eating place in Artist and wants to start a brewery in L.A. -- imagined he might "possibly make a big slice of change" to practice those projects by contending once again. Would either come again for a 4th try at the $1 million? "Never say never, but right now I don't think so," Lusth says, while Go is investing his time concentrating on a actuality display he has in the operates -- "my own show" -- but he dropped to provide more essentials other than to say it could be on the air by drop 2012.

-- Wade wasn't really the mastermind behind all the strategic movies. So says Destrade, who claims that he and winner Clarke were the ones controlling the game the whole time. "We spoon-fed him the strategy, and he was just the mouthpiece for it," Destrade says.

-- Nelson applied for the show 14 times. The player, who was nicknamed "Cowboy" by some of the contestants, says he's a huge fan of the show and actually had made it pretty far in the audition process three previous times that he applied. Viewers of the show have noted that he didn't get a lot of screen time, but Nelson claims that was part of his strategy, to keep quiet and maintain a low profile. Meanwhile, the player will probably be most remembered for groping his wife's behind during the family visit episode. Of the incident, he says, "My wife didn't even think a thing about it because I do it all the time." For the record, they have been married for 31 years.

-- Wade was devastated at coming in second. His exact words? "Gutted, eviscerated, emacerated. Nobody goes to the national championship game to lose." While he said his fellow finalists also "deserved to win," he still thinks he should have taken home the $1 million prize. "I feel like I won," he says. Still, he does think he "connected with the audience like never before. The first time I played, I was a character. The second time, I was sensitive, maybe too sensitive. This time I went out there to play."
