It only took four trips and 117 on the show to emerge victorious, but with the $1 million payout (and $100,000 bonus for being "fan favorite") he can't really complain.
Mariano, whose wife Amber Brkich Mariano also won $1 million on the show in 2004, said he was confident this season and used his past experiences on three prior seasons to get the big win.
"I used what I brought to the game from my past experiences, was able to get my foot in the door, and the people were responsive to that," he said on the Early Show today (via CBS news).
Congrats, Boston Rob!
