Contrary to recent widely held beliefs, America is actually the number one manufacturing nation on earth.

Survivor Champ Yul Kwon Takes on a New TV Adventure With America Revealed

Winning 2006's Survivor: Cook Islands was pretty tough for Yul Kwon — he beat out Ozzy Lusth! — but it wasn't nearly as stomach-churning as his new hosting gig on the four-part PBS series America Revealed (premiering Wednesday at 10/9c).

"I'm scared of heights and I'm claustrophobic, and I also get severe motion sickness on planes so half the time we were filming I'm scared out of my mind," Kwon says with a laugh.
