. . . . and that's why tug-o-war is no longer an Olympic sport.

How does a healthy, young guy like that have a heart attack while a self-destructive middle aged schlep like me is still alive?

According to TFA he underwent medical examinations before filming began.

I guess that's what social medicine gets you

I just take it as encouragement to do what you want. Because no matter how you live, you ain't gettin' out alive.

yeah, I read that part of the article where he was taken to a hospital in Cambodia and figured that was the end of him.

Wow.  Lots of internet assholes on here.  It's good that someone's brother/son/husband, etc. died because he happened to be on a game show?  Will you be excited if someone keels over coming on down on The Price is Right?

I would probably watch that show if the person who won was the last one left alive.

The thought of going to the hospital in Sihanoukville is probably what killed him.

The thinking is that he had whatever rare hard-to-detect congenital defect that causes the occasional high school or college athlete to suffer spontaneous heart attacks.

Thank goodness the American medical system has eliminated that... oh wait...

It's not a reality show. It's a game show. Even "reality shows" aren't reality shows. Survivor is a game show.

Only if Drew Carey makes an inappropriate joke.

Sad for him and his friends and family.

Still, I'm surprised there hadn't yet been a death on Survivor. I expected something like that to happen long ago. No matter how well you get tested beforehand, there's tons of disease out there in the jungle, not to mention opportunities for accidents while carrying machetes, knives, and torches around.

Even better, a contestant in the showcase showdown falls forward and get their head smashed in by the big wheel

Actually not the first Survivor in-game death. Bulgaria's fourth season, held in the Philippines, saw someone die on Day 14 (out of 52) from a heart attack, apparently brought on by the reward challenge. (This video, in Bulgarian, recaps the season; it looked to be some balance beam/cargo net/something-or-other-else obstacle course. Happened right there with everyone watching.) They kept on going and appeared to just go ahead and treat it as that episode's elimination.

It must be noted, though, that two other members of that player's tribe quit within the following week, and you can see from the Wikipedia page just how fast the tribe fell apart in the aftermath.

I would REALLY love to see a contestant drop dead right after they bid $1 more than the previous bidder. Or if they tried to spin the wheel really fast, fell forward on the ground and didn't get up again. And the wheel slows, and stops exactly on the $1.00.

Unlikely ... it is a page about a medical condition. I think your AV program is giving you a false positive.

Either way, just google ARVC.
