Stephen Fishbach's Survivor Blog: Naughty or Nice?

"In life, as in Survivor, you've gotta know when to kiss ass, you've gotta know when to kick ass." –Tony Vlachos, winner, Survivor: Cagayan

How would you play Survivor: naughty or nice?

It's an age-old Survivor question, though the terminology varies. "Old school" vs. "new school." Last season, Jeff Varner divided his tribe into "beach people" and "shelter people." The naughty new-school beach people were on the shore scheming. The nice old-school shelter people were in the woods providing.

You'd think by now everybody would be devious snakes. Rob Cesternino quipped in The Amazon: "We'll see if these guys that are building the shelter are all gonna be here to use it for more than six or nine days." Spoiler: They weren't. That was 13 years ago.

Nevertheless, this episode still came down to schemey Anna vs. provider Tai.

Survivor's Alecia Holden: "I Stood My Ground" Against Scot and Jason

Originally posted 03/16/2016 05:40PM

Some Survivor eliminations are more painful to watch than others.

Alecia Holden, a 24-year-old real estate agent from Dallas, was inexplicably put on the "Brawn" tribe of Survivor: Kaoh Rong. It didn't go well.

Holden never quite fit in with the rest of her tribe. From the start, she was on the outs with former NBA star Scot Pollard and Michigan bounty hunter Kyle Jason. The clashes grew increasingly personal – and viewers have taken to social media to blast Pollard and Jason for actions they thought were misogynstic and disrespectful.

But Holden tells PEOPLE that she is far from a victim in the tribe dynamic – although you shouldn't expect her to invite her former tribemates over for dinner.

Survivor's Caleb Reynolds Reveals His Temperature Hit 107 Degrees Before He Was Removed from the Game: 'I Was in the ICU for 5 Days'

Originally posted 03/16/2016 04:50PM

Over the years, Survivor has had its share of medical evacuations.

Sometimes, it was the contestant's own fault, like when Mike Skupin fell into a fire during 2001's Australian Outback. Sometimes, it was due to illness, like when Panama's Bruce Kanegai found himself severely constipated.

Other times, the blame falls on the producers. In 2012, contestant Kourtney Moon broke her wrist during an ill-conceived challenge that had contestants jumping from a 25-ft. tower into a net.

But no Survivor has been quite as brutal and chaotic as last week's episode, where contestants spent nearly an hour digging in hot sand for bags of balls.

Three contestants had to be treated for some sort of heatstroke or heat exhaustion. While two of them recovered, Army vet Caleb Reynolds was evacuated from the game.

Reynolds, 28, tells PEOPLE about his horrifying experience – and how he's preparing to play the game again.
