The long standing CBS reality series declared Vlachos as their latest winner late last night, making him just the second two-time season winner in Survivor history – also the last man standing at on Survivor: Cagayan, which was season 28.

The latest season finale featured three New Jersey residents: Vlachos, Michele Fitzgerald, 29, of Freehold and Natalie Anderson, 34, of Edgewater, drawing the attention of the popular New Jersey Twitter account.

“It’s truly as surreal as it was for me the very first time I played. I’m genuinely humbled that Survivor looks at me as one of their top winners, so much that they would invite me back to play again not once, but TWICE!,” Vlachos said on his Survivor casting profile.

“Being a part of this unimaginable milestone of a season is HUGE!”

According to state public records, Vlachos has been a member of the JCPD since February 1st, 2000 and he works in the North District, Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted.
