Survivor Finalist Tom Buchanan Returns with a Show of His Own

On paper, the brand new Family Beef may sound a lot like a Duck Dynasty clone: Take several generations of a Southern family who own a successful business, then watch them interact.

And should their Southern drawls become too hard to understand, simply add subtitles.

One thing that certainly is already familiar about Family Beef is its star, Tom Buchanan, who reached the final four on Survivor: Africa and the top five of Survivor: All-Stars.

Bronze 'Survivor' Winners Get Silver

A blunder on CBS’s “Survivor: Africa” has forced a belated gold rush to befall the show’s three second-place winners, network brass admitted Wednesday. The error occurred during the judging of an immunity challenge, with the result, as reported by the Associated Press, causing a catapulting of the standings of contestants Lex van den Berghe, the heavily tattooed consultant from Santa Cruz, Calif., and good ol’ boy Tom Buchanan, the farmer from Rich Valley, Va. The two guys now join the original runner-up, Kim Johnson of Oyster Bay, N.Y., in receiving a second-place prize of $100,000.
