Out Survivor contestant to auction off SUV given to him by Rosie

The New York Post reports that John Carroll, the openly gay nurse from Survivor: Marquesas, is auctioning off the Saturn SUV that was given to him by Rosie O'Donnell. "I hate to do it," writes Carroll in his eBay listing, "however, I am selling the Saturn Vue that Rosie O'Donnell gave me to pay for law school! Plus, I am giving a percentage to charity. You get to pick the color, the interior, and all the options." O'Donnell gave the SUV to Carroll when he was a guest on her show, but he never ordered it; the vehicle will be ordered by the highest bidder. The former talk show host is a big fan of Survivor and plugged it often on her own program. O'Donnell also replaced host Bryant Gumbel on the Survivor: Marquesas finale in May.
