'Survivor' finale gets brutal

The studio audience at CBS' "Survivor" finale screening let out a collective gasp at one exchange during the two-hour finale. "Survivor" contestant Corrine Kaplan trashed finalist Jessica "Sugar" Kiper for, among other things, weeping over her deceased father, who Kiper says recently died of lung cancer. Host Jeff Probst later said during the live reunion special that after 17 seasons of the show the comment was at the "top of the list" of “doozy” statements.

Here's a clip from the reunion show, which shows the comment and then Probst asking Kaplan to explain it (this flashback version unfortunately omits Sugar's original and rather appropriate middle finger response).
