"The game won this time," admits the latest "Survivor: Second Chance" castoff Joe Anglim to Gold Derby about his dramatic collapse at the Immunity challenge. After doing back-to-back seasons, his body just couldn't take the stress of the game anymore. But did Joe warn his family about his medical emergency before last night's episode aired? "Nope! They are as in the dark as any of the other fans. I enjoy watching their expressions and having them go on this emotional roller coaster with me."

According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that were derived from the predictions made by contest entrants like you, Joe was the #1 choice to go home this week with leading 9/10 odds (53% chance). But at least Joe got to experience the "loved ones" visit before he was eliminated, where he spent time on the island with his dad.
"It was tough going from the highest high to the lowest low in the game within 24 hours, and then getting to watch it in about 20 minutes," Joe says about watching the experience on TV Wednesday night. "It was tough. I definitely re-lived it and I'm still kind of re-living it a little bit."
Joe also clarifies his relationship with Abi-Maria Gomes, both during after the game. "The viewers and the fans are only getting like 1% of all that is going on out there. I love everyone on this cast. I respect the hell out of every one of them. Me and Abi, we got along a lot and then there's times when she butts heads with people and creates unnecessary drama for herself and for others. And after the fact, I love her to death. I have no hard feelings against Abi."
Also in our chat, Joe talks about how he knew Stephen Fishbach would come after him, if he thinks Keith Nale is coasting in the game and whether he'd ever go back to "Survivor" for a third time. Scroll down to listen to our complete Q&A.
