(+/-) Desi Williams ~ S35: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers
1stMar 7, 2018
- Dr. Desi Williams was a castaway on Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers and was a member of the Soko / Healer tribe for her work as a physical therapist
As a part of the dominant Soko tribe, she was in the majority alliance with Jessica, Roark, and Cole and she did not have to go to Tribal for the first 8 days of the game due to their challenge dominance. On Day 9, she and Joe were switched to the Levu tribe. Despite being at odds initially, they decided to work together and tried to woo Devon over to their side, which did not work, as he decided to work with Ashley and Alan instead. During their first Tribal appearance, with Jessica blocking Devon’s vote with an advantage, as well as Joe using his secret Idol, Alan went home, keeping Desi safe. She considered flipping on Joe if they returned to Tribal, but Levu managed to win the remaining immunity challenges until the merge.
At the merge, she reunited with her former Soko tribemates, aside from Roark. At the first Individual Immunity Challenge, she battled Ashley to win the first individual immunity. Expecting Chrissy to go, Desi’s alliance was blindsided when her ally Jessica went home instead, putting Desi at the bottom.
She did not manage to win the second individual immunity, although she came close. The other side decided to split the votes between Joe, whom they believed had an Idol, and Desi, whom they perceived as a dominant physical and social threat. Desi herself voted for Lauren. Due to a tie, a revote occurred, and Desi became the 8th person voted out in a 7-1 vote, becoming the first member of the jury on Day 21. At Final Tribal Council, she commended Chrissy’s challenge wins and Ben’s Idol finds, but criticized Ryan’s game and work ethic. Ultimately, she voted for Ben to win, helping him become the Sole Survivor.
In 2013, Desi was crowned Miss Virginia and was crowned Miss Virginia USA in 2016 (placing in the top 10). At Ponderosa, she helped Miss Fiji with her pageant walk. Desi is the first and only black castaway to win the first post-merge individual immunity challenge of any season – Jolanda in Palau and G.C. in Gabon won pre-merge indivudal immunities, however. Despite their early dominance, at 11th place, she is the highest ranking Soko female. Desi lost 7 lbs. while on Survivor. She is the co-author of the book Love Affair with my Hair: Why Black Women Cheat on Health. She is a former ful-time professor at Hampton University, her alma mater. She has recently relocated to Los Angeles to pursue on-camera hosting and acting opportunities. Despite her lack of camera time on Survivor, she would love to return.
