Puertorriquena Sandra Diaz-Twine beat out fellow villains Parvati Shallow and Russell Hantz on CBS's hit reality television show Survivor on Sunday evening and managed to make a little history in the process.

Diaz-Twine is the first-ever contestant to win the championship two times, taking home a cool million dollars on the Samoa-based Survivor, in which well-known characters from previous seasons competed against each other. She previously won the "Pearl Islands" edition of the show. "It makes me the queen," Sandra said of her second win while confidently rocking a sparkly tiara during the live reunion show that aired right after the season finale on Sunday evening. 

The twentieth season of the strategy and endurance based show pitted previous contestants—either loathed or loved—against each other in a "Heroes vs. Villains" format. All three finalists were from the villainous side of camp, proving that every now and then it does pay to be a little bad.

Congrats to self-made Latina millionaire!

I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
