Where Are They Now: ‘Survivor’ Sue Hawk

Rewind to August 23, 2000. Sue Hawk delivers one of the most famous speeches in reality TV history, as 52 million viewers watch her rake her fellow “Survivor” castaways over the coals.

And now seven years later, Sue is still shooting off her mouth as Access Hollywood found out in our first installment of our “Reality Stars: Where Are They Now?” series.

“It’s start of snake season. Gotta start shooting them. We’ve got too many,” Sue said at her home in Clever, Missouri. “The minute I see ‘em, I gotta get ‘em because they are fast.”

Clearly, she hasn’t lost her bang, even though she’s now dealing with a different type of snake, so to speak.

But you still don’t know what she’ll say or do.

Sue and her husband of 20 years, Tim, own a house and barn in Clever, which Sue plans on filling with her first love – horses.

Laid out over 60 acres of wooded areas loaded with deer and turkey, it’s the perfect fit for these two avid hunters.

Located just outside of Clever (population just over 1,000), even way out there, people still stop her on the streets.

“I get recognized all the time, even with the blonde hair and the big old fake boobs now.”

With a little bit of Hollywood still in her, as Sue looks back on her “Survivor” days, she’s not afraid to laugh at herself.

“Watching it and watching myself on TV, I was like, ‘Oh my God. I’m sort of a goofball,’” she told Access.

As for her rival – the aforementioned “snake” Richard Hatch – she sees his jail time for tax evasion as a special sort of karma just for her.

“There’s something up above me watching over me and when I need a little help, somehow, someway, they come along when I really need it. And it did. It’s called the IRS,” she laughed.
