After a coral imbedded in his heel and became infected, longtime fan Chet Welch voluntarily eliminated himself from Survivor: Micronesia Fans vs. Favorites this past Thursday (Mar. 13).
But if the infection hadnt spread, Welch is sure he couldve kept kickin it on the island.
He says, My mind was still in the game, but you cant live without a limb, especially a foot.
Now that Welch is back on his Pennsylvania farm, his foot fiasco hasnt kept him from his daily duties.
He says, Im not slowing down. Shþt happens.
Welchs experience as a beauty pageant coach also gave him a thicker skin than his competitors.
He says, Ive been called all kinds of names by my [pageant] girls. My Survivor competitors couldve said whatever they wanted, it wouldnt have bothered me.
Survivor: Micronesia airs Thursdays on CBS.
