Another player, Cole, almost found himself in the same position, after he fainted at the beginning of Wednesday's episode.
"At the immunity challenge, Dr. Mike had said, 'Oh, people are fainting,' and I was very confused," Ali recalled. "I thought he meant there, at the challenge."
"They told us that Cole fainted back at his camp, so it's very scary, because even though it's a game, and you think that it's this great experience, it's still life. You're still out there. You're not eating. You're sleeping outside or on bamboo, and it can be a struggle. And if you don't prepare well for it, then it can definitely be a lot harder than it has to be," she said. "I have been on plenty of diets before. I definitely know what it is to go on a cleanse and not eat, so that was not an issue for me at all. I actually gained a few pounds before heading out there, to make sure that I still had a little bit of meat on my bones."
