Last night was the debut of the new season of Survivor. Ashley seemed to be teetering on the brink of elimination because she got extremely ill during the second day, and thus she wasn't able to contribute to the group much. Fortunately for Ashley, a guy named "Chicken" ended up being the first person eliminated. The teaser for next week's episode focused on Ashley as they showed footage of Ashley wrestling in the mud with another female contestant as the narrator said "Next week, the pro wrestler comes out in Ashley." They also showed Ashley and another tribe member verbally fighting. Furthermore, Ashley was "blurred" twice during the show -- including the teaser clip of her wrestling another female contestant down in the mud for next week's episode.
