After the break, Jeffrey Tambor gets his blood pressure checked out by the medical team as his tribe (and Yasmin) watch. His blood pressure is 92/60, which is low. Enh. I've had that blood pressure reading before when I went to the doctor's office before I ate breakfast, and I'm fine. Jeffrey Tambor is helped to his feet. He says he's feeling "a little woozy," and then he collapses as, on the soundtrack, a bell tolls for him. Probst is concerned, as is Mick, who uses his doctor skills to say that Jeffrey Tambor is at risk of "a big heart attack." Soon enough, Jeffrey Tambor gets to his feet under his own power, but now his blood pressure is 80/60. Yeah, that's bad news. Probst asks if "a couple of canteens of water back at camp" will fix Jeffrey Tambor up. Uh ... no. Come on. The medical lady says they've given Jeffrey Tambor water and it's been forty minutes since any physical activity and he's still in dire straights. His heart can't take this game, so they're pulling him out of it. Well, great. How about we don't cast old people who are also overweight anymore? Or if we do, we don't have them compete in challenges like these? Come the fuck on. This show isn't fun if people leave because of injuries instead of being voted out. Unless it's Li'l Russell leaving, which is fine with me. Foa Foa (and Yasmin, I guess) say good-bye to Jeffrey Tambor, who interviews that Galu "never got [him] down in the pit," so he was able to show that he could be tough when necessary. Really? Because he showed me that if you don't take care of your body over your lifetime, it will eventually let you down. Whereas if you do take care of it, you can be Rudy from Season 1 and last almost the entire game despite being like fifty years older than everyone else and openly hating them. Probst says that despite being down another member, Foa Foa is still going to Tribal Council tonight. Yasmin appears to be crying. What's her deal? How is this at all upsetting for her? She's more emotional than the people on Jeffrey Tambor's tribe, who are now even more screwed than before. Hilarious epic tragedy music plays as Jeffrey Tambor is loaded into a van and taken away. Ha! No ambulance or helicopter for him! Mick interviews that things are not looking good for his tribe.
