Yul: (on his plans for the winnings on "Survivor: Cook Islands") My parents came to the US as immigrants without a lot of money and made a lot of sacrifices for me and my brother, so I want to help my parents do things they've never been able to do. I'd like to be responsible and invest for my financial security. I'd also really like to help out the charities and causes I'm committed to.
Yul: (asked if he was surprised to win "Survivor: Cook Islands") I wasn't [surprised]. I thought I had a good shot. I knew it was going to be a close vote between me and Ozzy. It's one of the things where you expect the worst and hope for the best.
