Nick Wilson.jpg

Age: 27
Hometown: Williamsburg, Kentucky
Current residence: Williamsburg, Kentucky
Occupation: Public Defender 

Hobbies: Boating on the lake, four-wheeler riding, and tailgating football games and Keeneland horse races.

Pet peeves: People getting offended over every little thing and know-it-alls.
 
Three words to describe you: Charming, outgoing, and intelligent.

What's your personal claim to fame?
Becoming a Redneck Lawyer! I am a first generation college student and the first in my family to get a bachelor degree. I am also proud of myself for being a public defender to help people instead of chasing money—especially because money and the thought of being rich motivated me in school. 
 
Who or what is your inspiration in life?
Mamaw Joan—my grandma. She is the most selfless person I've ever met. When my mom and dad got divorced she raised me and my four siblings while we stayed with my dad. She taught me life-changing lessons like the value of hard work and the importance of helping others. She also taught me how to enjoy a beer and some bluegrass music. Work hard, play hard, love hard. Her favorite quote was, "If you don't use it, you lose it!" 
 
If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
A cooler, beer, and a radio. Nothing beats being outdoors and putting a few back. As great as it is at a tailgate, on the lake, or at a bonfire, I bet it would be even more enjoyable on the beaches of Fiji. 

Which Survivor contestant are you most like? 
J.T. from Tocantins, Heroes vs. Villains, and Game Changers. I've got that Southern charm. I can be hard headed when in the heat of a competition. I'll either win or get myself sent home with a massive swing for the fences. No regrets! 

What's your reason for being on Survivor?
I think there are three reasons people play Survivor: adventure, money, and fame. My primary motivation is the experience and adventure! It has been my dream to play this game since I was a little kid. I want to push myself even further in life then I already have and test myself. 

My secondary motivation is the money. If I had a million dollars, I could pay off my student loans, which would open up my career options a little more. Money is not my primary motivation, because I anticipate I will make a million dollars in my career at some point. 

I do not care about fame. These days, Survivor contestants are only famous for about six months, anyways. 
 
Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor
I know I could be the final Survivor because I am the total package for this game, First, I am an adamant, hard-working son of a gun. I have chased my dreams my whole life and achieved those, despite humble beginnings.

Second, I am a likeable, social guy. Third, I am physically fit and stronger than I look. I will do great in the challenges—tribal and individual, physical and puzzle. Fourth, I am very smart and it is hidden well behind my accent and appreciation for small town life. I will definitely be underestimated.

Finally, I am a Survivor strategy expert. I am a super fan who has analyzed every season and every move. As I said, I am the Survivor total package.

On one hand, he says he's a public defender "to help people instead of chasing money".   Then later:

This one pulled at my heartstrings with his revelation of losing his mother to overdose.  Now, if we discover he lied about it to fit into the tribe, I'm going to hunt him down and pull out every hair of that chest sweater one by one.

I get where you are coming from, cops, with pulling on the heartstrings but his reveal came across as reading false and I really thought it was phony until he also discussed it in the confessional. There was no reason to continue the charade there. 

His vampire teeth, though. Look at them chompers!

I was not impressed with his work ethic,  which he summed up as "do as little work as possible".  Maybe he thinks that forming alliances is more important than helping out,  but his tribe noticed that he's a slacker, and that can't be good.

No matter how much I like people -- and I did tend to kinda like this guy -- I just can't stand the "do as little work as possible".  Hell, I'm a freaking gimp and I still wouldn't be like that!  Even if there was stuff I couldn't do physically, I would be doing whatever the hell i could do, to contribute as much as I could.

When he said that, I was like, "you can't be serious... have you ever watched this show?  have you ever co-existed with other humans who didn't end up kicking your ass for that attitude??"

Right? I've got MS and have for 15 years. I just got a handicapped parking pass like a year and a half ago and have used it maybe 25 times, if that. Do the least as possible just doesn't compute for me. I get maybe not leading the construction of the shelter, but if you plan on sleeping in it, your ass needs to be doing something to contribute.
