Article on what happened during the taping of Dr Phil.

Quote :
Survivor China winner Todd Herzog is now in treatment for alcoholism following an appearance on Dr. Phil last week, which was essentially an intervention by his family, as he was not aware he was appearing on TV until confronted by cameras at home.

I’ve learned details about his appearance from a member of the studio audience at last week’s taping. The episode will be broadcast sometime this month; a show publicist did not respond to a request for a specific broadcast date. Update: Based on promos, it looks like the episode will air next Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Just reading that article was sad. I hope this helps him because it sounds like he is in a terrible place.

Watching that clip was heartbreaking. I truly hope he can beat this addiction, and save himself for his friends and family. He's an awesome guy, IMO one of the best winners of Survivor. (I just liked the way he played. :-)

Did anyone watch it? My mom called me to remind me it was on.

It was heart wrenching. I had tears streaming down my face the whole time.

I can not believe he is still alive. I hope he can make it through this.

Ugh, I'm so pissed. I was home today but I didn't know he was going to be on. My Mom called me 5 minutes before it was over "don't you watch Survivor?", so all I saw was Dr. Phil telling him he was going to help him.

Can anyone recap? Did he say why he started drinking so heavily and who was there with him, I saw what I thought was his Mom, but then I saw a younger man too.

I missed the first 15 minutes.

It was really sad. Sandra Diaz Twine was there for support. His mom, stepdad and sisters were there also. The young man I think is an interventionist...is that what you call them?

I don't remember why he started drinking.

Why would they have him on if he was completely wasted? I don't get that. I didn't catch the show, so not sure how he ended up on the show drunk. Does it get explained? Poor guy.

Phil, I don't think they tell them they are going to be on, they show up and get them.
If I am not mistaken it was the same thing with that Americas Next Top Model girl, except she wouldnt come out on the stage when she found out

and from what it sounds like, he needs to be pretty wasted on a daily basis to stay alive

I had to turn it off, it was so sad it made me sick. How the heck did they get him on a plane to get to the Dr. Phil show? I pray to God he is getting help, it is beyond sad.

He said that he never really drank until he was 22. He didn't say (that I remember) what the catalyst was that got him started.

He drinks 2-3 litres of vodka a day. I just don't know how that is even possible.

There was a man there from a rehab facility that was going to take him right then. Todd agreed, but was upset that it was going to be for at least 90 days. 

I hope he stays there for as long as it takes.

The things we do to ourselves ... so sad.
Heavy drinking can have extensive and far–reaching effects on the brain, ranging from memory loss to permanent and debilitating conditions that require lifetime custodial care.
(Some effects of long term alcohol abuse are permanent even if no more alcohol is ever consumed.)
I hope he is successful but it sure will be tough.

I've read that quitting so suddenly, in situations like this, can be deadly. I'm glad he went somewhere to be monitored.

I have a serious problem with this episode. Todd is so sick BEFORE he gets to the show, so why didn't they take him IMMEDIATELY to a rehab center.

Not only that, but if his parents were helping him detox by giving him a shot every couple of hours, then how does he drink a whole bottle while in the care of dr Phil's hired help??

Sometimes reality tv makes me sick. I'm glad that Dr Phil is willing to help, but why all this pre stuff.

From the realityblurred article above.

Quote :
Here are details about what happened during the Dr. Phil episode taping that an audience member shared with me. These things may or may not end up on the edited version of the episode, of course:

Todd was trying to detox on his own, having not had success with rehab facilities; however, doing that on his own in the past resulted in seizures. His family appeared on the show first, and talked to him on the phone, and because of his current attempt at self-detox—which can be fatal—family members and addiction specialists ended up rushing to give him a bit of alcohol, in order to step him down.

Todd let addiction specialists and the show’s cameras in, but previously was not aware that his family had sought Dr. Phil’s help for an intervention.

In the studio, around 11 a.m., he blew around a 2.5, perhaps 2.6, when his blood alcohol level was tested. It was also revealed that he’d had a 5.5 BAL when he was last hospitalized. The audience member said that those who think he’s faking are “inhuman and cruel” because he was so clearly intoxicated.

He’d also had blood in his feces and his organs were failing, so his death was truly imminent. He was drinking about two bottles of liquor a day.

Todd was concerned about getting to a red-carpet Survivor event in December he was invited to—likely the finale for Survivor Blood vs. Water—and that’s why he wanted to get sober. Later, he kept insisting he needed to be out of treatment by Nov. 22 for the release of the second Hunger Games movie. Dr. Phil told him rehab would last at least 90 days.

However, he agreed to go to rehab, and went there directly from the set; the audience member said that when first confronted, he insisted to his family he wouldn’t go to rehab again, but the audience member was convinced that being on TV—the attention he was getting, which he responded to in part by being funny even in his intoxicated state—helped convince him to go.

Another Survivor cast member was in the audience and identified as a friend of Todd’s; the audience member, who wasn’t familiar with the show’s cast, thinks the person was Sandra Diaz-Twine, who won both Survivor Pearl Islands and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains.

Todd said that he didn’t abuse alcohol until after Survivor, when he started drinking heavily because he took advantage of the free alcohol available at cast events.

thank you for posting the show, Jack'd. I missed it the day it was on. Whew! How sad.
I agree with KelliM, though about how, if "Dr." Phil really wanted to help, he would've put him straight into rehab, instead of thinking about ratings first, when Todds' family reached out to him.
I'm glad he's finally getting the help he needs. I hope he makes it.

Todd is so fortunate to be going into a rehab facility for 90 days. I googled the facility and it looks very nice. Horseback riding, meditation, of course the 12 step program, exercise etc. I am surprised to hear people thought he was acting, he didn't appear to be acting to me. I look forward to hearing about how he is doing in the future.

http://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/2014/11/survivor-todd-herzog-relapse/

Quote :
Survivor winner Todd Herzog’s appearance on Dr. Phil last year was disturbing, to say the least; he alcoholism made him barely coherent and barely recognizable. He was drinking 24 gallons of vodka every month.

The show sent him to rehab and he returned months later, sober for 112 days.

As the preview for Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil makes clear, he has relapsed, slurring his words and, according to Dr. Phil, hallucinating. The description of the preview says that  “Todd’s mother, Shirley, and stepdad, Chuck, say Todd has since fallen off the wagon completely and is now worse than ever.”

Todd will be on both Thursday and Friday’s episodes.

This is sad.
