Godspeed, Alecia. You may have been annoying and not known when to be quiet, but Jason and Scott were total dicks to you.

I've been watching Survivor since Season 1, but have never quite seen anything like tonight with three medical emergencies happening simultaneously. I don't think that many crew members have ever been shown onscreen before. If not for knowing that this season was filmed almost a year ago, I could have been convinced I was seeing my first onscreen Survivor death. Really scary, glad Caleb fully recovered.

Ditto to everything Gooch. That was something!! Wow!! I know they could never anticipate the balls taking so long to find but I hope they rethink future challenges in such heat. Later in the day... Group water break, etc.

Jeff Probst on 'the most frightened I've been in all my time on Survivor'

Yeah, that was pretty intense and certainly got into the grey area of "are we pushing too much" and "should we be broadcasting this".

As to Alecia, the Brawn tribe made a fatal mistake by not voting her off the first time. She was terrible fit and wasn't doing much to help the team as whole. That said, Jason was being quite the dick to her and should have told to knock it off.

I'm sure Jeff, the crew and the producers quickly went from 'Yay, drama' to 'Oh shit' when they realised that going from one to multiple survivors crashing from heat stroke and they realised they were to blame to running a competition in such unsafe conditions. But they get some kudos for showing so much of what they could have been discrete about.

My wife-of-a-medical-persuasion was utterly dismayed that the brains tribe's ER doctor Peter didn't appear at all when medical started to look stretched. Was he kept away (maybe its part of his participation contract), or did he opt himself out?

It will be interesting the watch Scott and Jason from here. After nine days of being increasingly dickish, can they reset their sense of what inter-personal relationships mean in Survivor with the merge? Depending on how the merge plays out, it looks like Cydney will be the only one of the three going any where near the Jury.

The secret of Jason's immunity idol is at least now solely within his alliance, although that will make it harder for Tai to connect up the super-idol.

Alecia is a near perfect example of the Dunning-Krueger effect. She believes that she's much smarter & more strategic than she is, which is not much really. Scott & Jason saw that & used it to their advantage; Jason even got an idol because of it. But they did let their annoyance turn to bullying, which was definitely uncalled for. I don't think Alecia belonged out there in the first place but there's never an excuse for punching down like they did.

Is a liability issue, he's not allowed to perform medical aid.
