“I should have definitely waited another tribal to vote Zeke Smith out,” reveals “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” castoff Will Wahl to Gold Derby when talking about his regrets in the game after being eliminated. “And I also should have tried to work with Jay Starrett on a more even level. There were a lot of times that I didn’t trust Jay when I should have, and that’s something that I really do regret.”

Will’s decision to turn on Zeke so early called into question Will’s trustworthiness among his other tribe members, which is part of the reason he was voted out. “I regret the timing that I did it,” admits Will. “I think I did it way too early. I think if I had waited another tribal council or two, then I really could have had the opportunity to get rid of Zeke and it not be such a big target on my back after that.”
As for why he was smiling when he was voted out, Will explains, “I didn’t want to go out being bitter, you know? I love this game too much and I really wanted to go out on a positive note. The smile on my face came from the fact that that was the first moment that I truly got to understand that I had just been through this experience. Like, it had been surreal the entire time and then to actually get voted out, that was the moment that it all became real for me.”
Also in our “Survivor” podcast, Will chats about whether being the youngest person in the show’s history was an advantage or a disadvantage, who he think he’ll stay lifelong friends with, and what type of player he’ll vote for to win the $1 million.
