"Survivor: The Australian Outback" contestant Rodger Bingham, 53, who is still in the running for the $1 million prize on the CBS reality show, already has reaped a reward, of sorts. The Kentucky native will have an overpass named for him in his home state. "I don't know much about the show," state Gov. Paul Patton told Bingham at a reception last week where "Kentucky Joe," as Bingham is called on the show, was honored, "but I know you can't tell me if you survived." For the record, the precise location of the overpass is on Interstate 75 near Crittenden, Ky., where Bingham has toiled as a farmer, schoolteacher and businessman. From all reports, it's no where near as rugged as the Aussie Outback.
