The Maine Edge: One of the things you've wanted to do is be on Survivor and win it. Is it bittersweet now that you've accomplished that and how do you top it?
Cochran: I just sent out a tweet this morning that said my life is downhill from here. I have so few passions in my life. I love the Beatles and I love Survivor. I don't know what's next. That's why I've talked about pursuing writing.
TME: What are you going to do with the winnings?
Cochran: Not too much exciting stuff. Invest in my future. Once I figure out where I'm going to live, I'll put a down payment on an apartment and a few small impulse buys on a few technology gizmos since I'm kind of a technology geek.
TME: Even though you won, would you change who you brought to the final three?
Cochran: Obviously it helped having an outcome that worked in my favor. No. I got very, very close to Dawn and Sherri. At the time, it's was a good feeling going to the end with people you genuinely like and trust. I worked together with them.
TME: What was your best memory of this season besides winning?
Cochran: The final four tribal council when we voted off Eddie and he walks off after his torch was snuffed out, I looked at the jury and they were all looking at me giving me a thumbs up and Reynold mouthed 'You won.' And that was an exhilarating moment for me.
