Joe's health scare takes him out of the game.
When the doctor returned for another look at Joe, he felt it would be best for the 71-year-old castaway to exit the game as to avoid the potential risk of long-term kidney damage. Disappointed and saddened by the news, Joe rose to hug his fellow castaways and close the chapter to his Survivor journey.
For 34 days, the fierce competitor was "getting it done at 71" and would remain an inspiration for those watching. But with Aubry's closest ally now gone, how will this affect the rest of her journey? Only time will tell.
Watch the season finale of Survivor: Kaoh Rong on Wednesday, May 18, starting at 8/7c.
