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'

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.

She's an actress and pin-up model. He's a photographer. So it seemed natural for two-time Survivor contestant Jessica "Sugar" Kiper to tie the knot with her new husband, Nicholas Critelli.

The couple said "I do" on Valentine's Day in a small outdoor ceremony. The reception was held in a '50s diner. "It's unique," Kiper tells PEOPLE. "But I wanted to do something different. I'm wearing a red dress because that's good luck."
