Jordan Williams, the youngest contestant on Netflix’s Outlast, had to leave the show due to medical reasons. He passed out while walking in the Alaskan wilderness and was evacuated by the showrunners.
He also had a terrifying encounter with one of the most dangerous variants in the Asylum, a haunted building where the contestants had to spend a night.
What Happened to Jordan on Outlast?
Evacuated due to passing out
Jordan Williams was a 25-year-old survivalist from Fort Collins, Colorado, who joined Outlast in season 1. He was part of Delta Camp, along with Paul Preece, Dawn Nelson, and Joel Hungate. He was confident in his skills and training as a former US Marine and wanted to prove himself in the extreme survival challenge.
However, things went downhill for Jordan when he missed the island where the crab pots were hidden during a rafting task. He had to paddle back to his camp without any food, which affected his energy and health. He admitted that he had fewer fat reserves than everyone else and could already feel his ribs.
The next day, while walking with his teammates, Jordan suddenly collapsed and lost consciousness. His teammates and the showrunners were alarmed and rushed to his aid. He was medically evacuated and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Face-to-face with the Asylum’s most dangerous variant
Before his evacuation, Jordan also had a horrifying experience in the Asylum, a haunted building where the contestants had to spend a night as part of a task. The Asylum was filled with creepy noises, dark corridors, and terrifying creatures called variants, who were former patients of the facility.
Jordan was assigned to explore the basement of the Asylum, where he encountered one of the most dangerous variants in the show: Chris Walker. Walker was a massive and muscular man who had mutilated himself and killed many people in the Asylum. He chased Jordan through the basement and tried to grab him with his bloody hands.
Jordan managed to escape from Walker by hiding in a locker and running out of the basement. He was visibly shaken by the encounter and said that it was the scariest thing he had ever experienced.
Where is Jordan Williams Now?

He often posts updates on his health and fitness, as well as motivational messages for his fans. He also interacts with his fellow Outlast contestants and expresses his gratitude for their friendship and support.
He recently posted a photo of himself holding a sign that read “I’m back” with a smiley face, indicating that he is doing well after his Outlast experience.
Why Did Jordan Williams Leave Outlast?
Low on food
Jordan Williams left Outlast because he ran out of food and energy in the Alaskan wilderness. He missed the opportunity to get some crab pots during a rafting task and had to survive on minimal rations. He also had less body fat than other contestants, which made him more vulnerable to starvation and hypothermia.
He said that he felt weak and hungry all the time and that he could not perform well in the tasks. He also said that he was worried about his health and safety in the harsh environment.
Wanted to continue
Despite his condition, Jordan Williams wanted to continue in Outlast and prove himself as a survivor. He said that he loved the challenge and the adventure of being in the wild. He also said that he wanted to win the prize money for his family and friends.
However, he did not have a choice when he passed out while walking and was evacuated by the showrunners. He said that he was disappointed and sad that he had to leave the show prematurely. He also said that he felt sorry for letting down his teammates and fans.
He wrote a letter to his Delta Camp teammates, telling them that he regretted leaving them but that he was proud of them. He also encouraged them to keep fighting for their dreams and to win the competition for their loved ones.
