HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (CBS) – Todd Herzog was just 22 when he won Survivor: China in 2007, and his family says he was on top of the world with his million-dollar winnings and newfound fame.
But in 2013, he hit rock bottom when he was drinking a half gallon of vodka every day and his blood alcohol levels were so high, doctors say he should have died.
Todd has appeared on the show multiple times and had multiple failed attempts at sobriety. It’s been two years since Dr. Phil’s last visit with Todd. Now, he’s back fighting for his life.
