The tasks outlined in Netflix’s ‘Outlast’ are not meant for everyone. Each day, the participants of this captivating survival series must keep pushing hard and maintain an advantage over the others. However, given the harsh conditions they must endure, this strategy is easier said than done. It is perhaps for this reason that Nick Radner, one of the winners of the debut season of the reality series, has such a huge fan following. His time on the show was far from smooth, but alongside his teammates, he thrived and secured his victory. Naturally, people are pretty curious about just where Nick is these days. Luckily, here is what we know about the same!
Nick Radner’s Outlast Journey
Entering the Netflix series at 36, Nick Radner was determined to be one of the winners. When the participants learned that they could form their teams, it was only a short time before he was a member of Charlie Camp. His teammates included Angie Kenai, Andrea Hilderbrand, and Seth Lueker. Thanks to their teamwork and resourcefulness, Nick’s group could build a good shelter and start a fire. However, while he seemed eager to take charge, his attitude did not sit well with Angie, who did not want to be underestimated simply because of being a woman.
Things were troublesome for Charlie Camp when Andrea left after the first night due to health reasons. The development upset Nick as he thought this to be quitting, which he did not like. Meanwhile, his tiff with Angie continued until reaching a boiling point during the task when all teams had the chance to get some crab pots. After constructing the raft, the team had to decide who to send forward to do the mission and navigate the Neka river.
Nick was adamant about sending Seth, yet Angie argued she would be a better fit given her lighter weight. Ultimately, the latter was the only person out of all the participants to get crab pots, which considerably changed Nick’s opinion. Soon afterward, Charlie Camp was approached by Delta Camp, who wondered if they could borrow one of the crab pots. Nick and his team agreed to the request and took the time to incentivize Paul Preece into joining their team.
After Jordan Williams‘ evacuation, Paul switched to Charlie Camp, which set the whole group against the remaining members of Delta Camp — Dawn Nelson and Joel Hungate. Now the only Camp with four members, Nick’s team continued to dominate the competition. They even allied with Alpha Team, leading to their decision to reject Javier Colón‘s request to be a part of Charlie Camp.
Nick’s team did suffer a huge loss when Angie had to be medically evacuated. Still, the remaining three decided to do their best in her honor. With just Camps Charlie and Alpha in play, the former tried to lure in Jill Ashock, who rejected the offer. Their second proposition was to Justin, who agreed to the switch but was eliminated when some of his actions did not sit well with the other three members of Charlie Camp.
For the final stretch, the remaining players were asked to reach a certain point to be declared the winner. While Nick’s team had a longer route and was often intersected by cold water streams, the other group did have to navigate a harsher terrain. In the end, Charlie Camp did end up winning the competition and claiming the prize of $1 million.
