Survivor: Parvati Shallow & Hubby John Fincher’s Love Story
Parvati Shallow and John Fincher didn’t compete against one another on Survivor. While Parvati was on Micronesia, Heroes vs Villains, and Cook Islands, John was a contestant on Samoa, where he placed 9th. The two didn’t actually meet until 2013, they both signed up to play in a charity soccer game for Ethan Zohn’s foundation Grassroot Soccer. Parvati says that she and John sat next to one another and there was an immediate connection.
They began dating in 2014 and eventually, John got down on one knee in 2017 to ask Parvati to marry him. The Survivor alums got married the same year. Then not a year later they announced that they were expecting a baby. In July 2018, John and Parvati welcome a little baby girl.
What Does Parvati Do For a Living?
It’s safe to say that Parvati Shallow’s million-dollar winnings from Micronesia weren’t enough for a family of three to live on. Especially because she won Survivor back in 2008 way before meeting John Fincher.
The 37-year-old Parvati makes a living as a life coach, a yoga teacher, and as of recently, an author. She just released a children’s book called Om the Otter.
What Does John Fincher Do For a Living?
On the other hand, Survivor fans might remember that John was originally a rocket scientist. Now he currently owns a beer distribution company called ZX Ventures that’s located in New York.
John also co-founded Socio Ventures which is based in Los Angeles. Socio Ventures is a startu-up incubator which provides funds and help to new innovative companies just starting out.
