Todd Herzog, winner of the 15th season of Survivor, has been struggling with alcoholism for awhile now, to the point where medical experts say he is one day from death.
With a blood-alcohol level of 0.582, a level typically for those under coma or even death, it is obvious that Todd desperately needs help. He would drink two to three liters of vodka every day, and said he needed to take shots of vodka in order to stop himself from shaking.
He appeared on the Dr. Phil show, where he had an intervention to get him to deal with his issue with alcohol right now. He is now under a 3-month treatment with support from his family, friends and fans, and hopefully everything is going to be okay for him going forward.
Survivor China was the first season I ever watched and Todd was my favorite. He is an awesome guy and it breaks my heart finding about this because he deserves a better life than what I've seen in the video and read from the news. Here's hoping he will succeed in his treatment and prove to everyone that he is not only an inspiring survivor in a game, but an inspiring survivor in life.
