Nick Wilson had the chance to vote Ben out but he didn't and that came back to bite him, as he got voted out right before he could make it to the final five on 'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40. 

'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 returned on Wednesday night with an all-new episode titled, 'The Penultimate Step of the War'. This week's episode aired for two hours because when the series returns next week, it will be for the finale. 

Last week, after Kim decided to target Tony, she had the target set on her back instead, which caused her to get voted out during the tribal council. This week, Michele and Jeremy decided to target Ben and did their best to get him voted out. They brought Nick into their alliance, who at the last minute during the tribal council, flipped and didn't vote for Ben. He voted for Jeremy instead. 

With Jeremy gone, Michele had no one in her alliance and had a target on her back. But Nick received an advantage from the Edge of Extinction and had the chance to give someone a disadvantage at the next immunity challenge for eight fire tokens. Since he had six, he decided to go to Michele for help. Michele helped out, and during the immunity challenge, Ben received a disadvantage where he had more blocks compared to the other castaways. Luckily, Michele was able to take lead and won herself immunity from elimination. 

With Ben still in the game, she and Nick decided to try and get one of the other castaways on their team to vote Ben out, and surprisingly they tried to convince Tony. While he put a pin in it, he also wanted to get Denise out after he spied and overheard that he was being targeted next. 

Tony ended up convincing Nick and Michele to vote for Denise. Arriving at the tribal council, there wasn't much of a discussion this week. While Michele and Nick voted for Denise, hoping Tony would do the same, he voted for Nick instead with the other contestants, sending Nick to the Edge of Extinction. 

Taking to Twitter, fans affirm Nick played himself and got voted out because he flipped when he had the chance to vote Ben out. "Nick you laid your own bed by choosing Ben over Jeremy. No sympathy for a poor decision. #Survivor40 #survivor," a fan said. 

"Had Nick not flipped against Jeremy, he would be leading the pack. Silly sheep. #Survivor," a fan wrote. While another shared, "If Nick would’ve voted out Ben instead of Jeremy he’d still be in the game #Survivor." 

"When Nick says he’s a genius, but actually f***ed himself over by not taking Ben out... #Survivor," a fan added. Another fan said, "Nick is such a bozo for not taking out Ben when he could. #Survivor."
