When you bring 18 complete strangers together and place them on an island to compete toward one common goal, the wildest things can happen.

And, well, during the Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers season premiere entitled "I'm Not Crazy, I'm Confident," they did.

Alan Ball, a member of the Heroes Tribe, grew paranoid about the tight bond between tribemates JP Hilsabeck and Ashley Nolan. He was so moved to blow up their game that he insisted JP was hiding an Idol from him.

Did JP, in fact, hold a Hidden Immunity Idol? Not even close.

But, the L.A. firefighter's honest answer wasn't enough to keep Alan's nerves calm.

"I know I look like the crazy man," said Alan. "But now I got suspicion going and now I just put a target on their back if it worked the way it was supposed to."

That's when Alan asked JP how far he was willing to go to prove his innocence.

"Alan's a crazy man," said JP. "His drama and everything that he causes is not worth his strength. A loose cannon like that sort of rocks the ship."

Maybe JP was pushed to his breaking point because, what he did next, nobody saw coming.

"Alan is starting to lose his mind," said Ashley. "His paranoia is so bad. It's, like, where is this coming from?"
