Survivor: The Evacuees

Over the history of Survivor, 24 seasons so far, there have been 10 medical evacuations. 10 survivors left the game not because they were voted out and not because they gave up and quit but for reasons beyond their control. They had to leave the game because of broken bones or they were badly burned. They had to be evacuated because of serious illness or infection or because their bodies couldn't take anymore and just shut down.

Thousands apply to be on the show each season but only a few are selected. To finally make it on the show is a dream come true and to be pulled out of the game because of medical reasons can be devastating. They had to leave the game and give up any chance to be Sole Survivor. However, next season on Survivor Philippines some are getting a second chance. Some will be returning to see if they have what it takes to make it to the end.

Now, I'm not going to speculate or spoil who will be returning for Survivor Philippines. If you want to know I suggest to you read our spoilers that have been compiled from sources around the internet (Thanks to DanieuBleau for doing all that work). We are just going to take a look back at these 10 survivors and how/why they were evacuated from the game. Also, speculate a little about how far they might have gotten if they stayed in the game.

Let's begin from the first person evacuated to the last person.
