Nicole Wilmans is the Sole Survivor of Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island.

Nicole, despite generally being on the side of the numbers before the Merge, would find herself on the outs as the dominant Vuna alliance picked off her fellow Zamba members until there was only her and Anela Majozi left. At this point, Vuna's members began to target each other, allowing the pair to maneuver through the post-Merge by aligning with the right people and avoiding being targetted. She would successfully beat Chappies Chapman at the Final Immunity Challenge, and her refusal to give up despite her perpetual underdog status would help her to beat Anela at the end in a near-unanimous 8-1 vote for the title of Sole Survivor.


Profile

“I think I was born to be on Survivor - I love the thrill of the game and how it challenges you in every possible way imaginable,” says Stellenbosch-born digital marketing manager Nicole Wilmans (26). “I am a passionate and enthusiastic woman. A go-getter and always up for a challenge,” she says. Having packed her bikini first – adamant she was going to get that ‘Survivor glow’ – Nicole says she feels like she’d been preparing her whole life for the game.
