WILLIAMSBURG -- A Kentucky man who won the reality TV show "Survivor" last year will put his skills to the test again during it's upcoming season when he returns to compete in an all-star round for $2 million.

Nick Wilson, a University of Kentucky graduate from Whitley County, was announced Wednesday as one of the cast members of the show's 40th season, "Survivor: Winners at War" which premieres in February, news outlets reported. He'll compete against 20 other former winners from the show's two-decade run for the largest prize in reality TV competition history, according the show's online description.

Wilson won the 37th season last fall. His appearance in 2020 will mark the third time in four seasons that someone with Whitley County ties will be represented on the show. Elaine Stott, of Rockholds, appeared on the show's 39th season that finished airing last week. She was just two episodes from making it to the finale when she was eliminated.
