Wes Says Wings Weren’t Worth It

Wesley Nale’s eviction from “Survivor: De Juan Del Sur” last week may have been one for the record books. With two different hidden immunity idols flushed out during tribal council negating the more plentiful votes for two others (his dad Keith Nale and alpha male Jon Misch), Wes was sent to be the third member [...]
