"I'm going to tie it to my church, obviously. Ten percent is going to church off the top, and then my husband and I just want to build a home, and set money aside for retirement," Lacina continued. "It's really boring, but that's really what's going to happen."
Lacina's plan is airtight -- with no room for impulse purchases.

The two-time player offered to give her vote-stealing advantage to Cirie, knowing that the advantage was non-transferable. When Cirie tried to use the advantage at tribal council to vote out Tai, Sarah saw the the move as an attempt to hurt her game, and instead orchestrated the elimination of Cirie's ally, Michaela Bradshaw.
"That is exactly what that was. It was cutting off Cirie's friend, but it was also looking at, 'Ok, if Troyzan and Brad are a pair, if Aubry and Tai are a pair, if Cirie and Michaela are a pair, who is the strongest out of the pair that »
Director Doug Liman’s The Wall is not about Donald Trump’s wall on the Mexican border, the Berlin Wall that symbolized the divide between communist and capitalist countries in the Cold War, or even the Great Wall the Chinese built along their border. No, this wall is the crumbling remains of what was once a building in a contemporary desert war, zone a wall behind which a sniper may be hiding and which later shelters an American serviceman pinned down in that dusty war.
Liman is a skillful film maker but this a decidedly smaller film for the director behind The Bourne Identity and many others. The intimate war drama The Wall starts out in a contemporary desert war zone with a pair of U.S. Army Rangers, Sgt. Allen Isaac (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Staff Sgt. »

Varner was promptly eliminated, though the media wasn't so keen to just snuff his torch and move on. In the weeks that followed, both Varner and Smith gave numerous interviews on the topic, starting a conversation about outing, transgender visibility in the media and even whether CBS was right to have aired the footage.

The 35-year-old surfer spent his shortest time on the island this most recent go-around (24 days), after being eliminated on Wednesday night's second episode.
This season of Survivor: Game Changers seemed tailor-made for Lusth, who quickly became a fan favorite on his first season, 2006's Survivor: Cook Islands, for his survival skills and incredible immunity streaks, though his time was surprisingly cut short on Wednesday after failing to win an immunity challenge he had played -- and won -- twice before.
After lasting more than an hour and half holding himself up on a giant, building-sized pole, Lusth dropped to the ground, giving immunity »
In another Game Changers twist, Nuku and Mana were sent to tribal council after Tavua won the immunity challenge -- but only one castaway would be sent home.

With the numbers in favor of keeping all members of Nuku, the tribe just had to stick together and hope Mana didn't have a Hidden Immunity Idol... but that proved just a little too difficult.
