Many folks might roll their eyes when they learn the season finale of “Survivor” airs tonight on CBS, but at least there’s a local rooting interest in the million-dollar prize.

Missy Payne, 47, is a competitive cheerleading coach who lives in Preston Hollow and appears on the show alongside her daughter, Baylor Wilson, 20, a musician who lives in Nashville. The season was taped earlier this year in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.

Cucina Italian Restaurant in Preston Center will hold a watch party for the two-hour episode, which starts at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a reunion special. The restaurant will serve its full menu along with a buffet, and will donate 5 percent of all proceeds tonight to Payne’s nonprofit gym, Cheer 4 Your Life.
