Clay Jordan, best known for finishing second in the CBS television reality show Survivor: Thailand, has died. Jordan died Thursday in Monroe, Louisiana, just months after the death of his wife, Linda. He was 66.
“Clay Jordan was one of a kind,” said Carol Brown, a family friend quoted in the NewsStar media outlet. “He was so full of love, he exuded love in everything he did. Clay was just a huge personality. When he entered a room, he took over the room. He made everyone feel so much better just being around him.”
