Neal Gottlieb has become the eighth castaway to be eliminated from Survivor: Kaôh Rōng – Brains vs Beauty vs Brawn.
The 39-year-old ice cream entrepreneur from Sausalito, CA was unfortunately medevaced due to an infection in his knee. After a show-and-tell of injuries before the immunity challenge, Jeff and a member of the medical team made an impromptu visit to the new Dara tribe to do a check-up on everyone. He looked at injuries on Tai, Scot, & Aubry, but he deemed them fit to continue.
Neal’s injury, however, was an infection on his knee, which if left untreated could have spread into his joints and caused irreparable damage. Fortunately for Neal, once his injury was taken care of, he was able to return to Ponderosa and became the first member of the jury.
This is the second medevac from this season after Caleb was pulled from the game in Episode 4.
