”Survivor: Palau”: Meet Willard Smith

Voted off March 16, 2005

AGE 57

HOMETOWN Bellevue, Wash.


THE SCOOP Because of a boyhood illness, Smith spent several years in a wheelchair, but he eventually recovered and joined the Marines at 17.

PROS His muscular, trim physique may seem less threatening because of his age.

CONS A smoker, he’ll have to adjust to Survivor living while going through nicotine withdrawal.
