Earl does ad people proud.

Ad guy Earl Cole swept all 9 jury votes to take take home a million pre-tax bucks on Survivor Fiji. Earl, who never had his name written down at tribal council, proved that ad people can indeed persuade and manipulate any society (though Earl really does owe his new fortune to Dreamz constant flip-flopping).

Earl wasn't the only "advertising executive" in this season's show. Edgardo Rivera was also a playa' this season (Edgardo proved that most ad people suck at archery).

I put the "advertising executive" title in quotes because it's just such a goofy, Darren Stephensesque moniker that people outside the industry use to describe what we do. If his beach drawings (and many of his tribal ballots) are any indication, you have to figure that Earl's got an art direction background.

His bio says Earl's an ex-KCK kid transplanted in Santa Monica. Way to go Earl. All of us in Adland are happy for you. Winning the million is at least as good as Gold Pencil, eh?

P.S. If you ever make your way back to KC, look us up.
