VIDEO Survivor: Caramoan Red Carpet Interview — Erik Reichenbach Reveals Real Reason For His Medical Evacuation
May 15, 2013 04:00 PM by Ryan Haidet
Although he made it deep in the game, Erik Reichenbach’s presence on Survivor: Caramoan — Fans Vs. Favorites was nearly non-existent. But he quickly became the main focus at the start of the season finale — but only for a few minutes as he was suddenly on his back facing the medical team who ultimately removed him from the game due to a medical emergency. After that, Erik essentially disappeared once again until he blasted Sherri Biethman at the final Tribal Council for getting to the end of the game simply by being a goat. When I had the chance to chat with Erik on the red carpet immediately following the finale and live reunion show, he voiced his disappointment that people in the studio audience like former castaways Rudy Boesch and Boston Rob Mariano got more airtime than most of the current castaways at their own finale. He also offered an in-depth explanation of the exact reason he was medically evacuated, which he feels wasn’t accurately portrayed on the show. Head inside the article to see the video interview.
