After tweeting — and then hastily deleting — a post that exposed the harsh realities of the game, an Australian Survivor contestant raised eyebrows.
Here's all you need to know about it.
Simon Mee took to Twitter on Wednesday to express his concern about the bleak conditions at the Survivor's Samoan beach camp. However, his message did not last long.
A fan's meme about his feud with Gerry Geltch was also prompted by his tweet.
Geltch is seen angrily scolding Mee in a recent episode of Survivor, who was also chastising him over the placement of the tribe's firewood in the camp.
'Poor Simon, I can't even get firewood duties done right,' said the user.
Mee on the other hand surprised everyone with his outburst as he wrote a series of tweets.
The mild-mannered rescue pilot continued to stress that their feud stemmed from larger problems rather than privileges, and how the participants slept.
'You can always tell a lot about the tribe's pecking order from the sleeping arrangements,' he said.
'Gerry slept in the middle of the shelter every night, but when he collected firewood, he stacked it down the end of the shelter,' he said.
'It also happened to be my bed,' he added.
Matt Tarrant, a former player and Survivor megafan, responded to Simon Mee's tweet, confirming his personal experiences at the camp. He also offered advice to future participants.
Tarrant said, 'This is legit very true.' At camp, never sleep on the edge of the bed. I'd allow you to sleep on top of me if you wanted to.'
'Thanks, Matt. I remember how ecstatic I was when I was able to fit under the tarp for the first time after Shaun left.' Mee replied by saying, 'I'm sorry, Matt.'
Former contestants have been open about the difficult situations they had to endure to remain in the game.
Jackie Glazier and 'King George' Mladenov sustained injuries at the same time while attempting to clear an obstruction during the season's first immunity test this season.
In 2017, Henry Nicholson, Locky Gilbert, and Luke Toki revealed how their tribe had to endure three days of hunger and endured one devastating storm.
