Tribemates and health professionals Mike and Jess immediately ran to Cole's side to offer the confused castaway their full attention—and enough food and fluid to strengthen him.

"What happened?" asked Cole, looking up at Mike.
"Just lay down. Keep your legs up," said Mike.
"What... just... happened?" Cole asked again.
"You just passed out," Jess replied.
As Mike cared for Cole, Jess ran off to cook rice for him.
"I just stood up too fast," Cole explained to Jess, when she brought food over.
"No you didn't. You are depleted, that's what you are..."
Off-camera, Jess explained how bad she felt for her Survivor BFF and how in that moment, she realized just how much she cared for Cole, adding, "I’m not ready to play this game without Cole."
However, on the other end, Mike saw Cole's collapse as more of a liability, saying, "We're just going to have to keep pulling and pulling him along... we need to get rid of Cole."
Even Ben had something to say: "He knew he was coming on Survivor. He should have worried more about his appetite than his six-pack and packed on a few pounds."
