Keith Nale, a two-time Survivor contestant and fan favorite pἀssed away on April 18, 2023. He was 62 years old at the time of deἀth. His son Wes said in a statement on ET:
“Keith Nale dἰed April 18 afternoon following a battle with cancer which we first found it about in January”.
Kevin Nale, Keith Nale’s brother added:
“A life lost far too quickly! It all happened so fast. Cancer dev0ured him. He pἀssed away this afternoon at his Shreveport, Louisiana, home.
Nale had two appearances on the CBS reality show. He participated with his son Wes in the second Bl00d vs. Water episode of Season 29 of Survivor: San Juan del Sur which aired in 2014.
Nale advanced all the way to the championship round. He participated in Survivor: Cambodia — Second Chances the very next year where he was chosen by viewers for a second chance to win a million dollars. He made an effort to be more strategic and cooperative throughout that season, but he was ultimately eliminated in fifth place.
In both of Nale’s seasons, Kelley Wentworth co-starred with him. She offered her sympathies to his family. She Tweeted, “Keith – a man with the purest heart who brought humor into moments where it was needed most”.
Keith – a man with the purest heart, who brought humor into moments where it was needed most. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to meet Keith & share memories together on the beaches of Nicaragua & Cambodia. My heart is with the entire Nale family. This is a devastating loss 💔 pic.twitter.com/FHPnrmKx5a

Devastated to hear about Keith Nale passing. Hard to think of a purer spirit on Survivor. He was always a delight, had great humor, told hilarious stories and found so much joy in life. We were never once aligned but he couldn’t have been nicer. He taught me to pluck a chicken. pic.twitter.com/dPtW7KHUos
