Lisa Whelchel has tried every exercise in the book – and she’s suffered the injuries to prove it.
“I hurt my shoulder playing racquetball, I have a lower back injury from an aerobics class and I messed up my feet while training to climb Mount Whitney,” she tells PEOPLE. “Even on Survivor, when I did the mud challenge, I developed sciatica that has continued to give me trouble.”
“You’re going to want to show that either you were the top villain or the top hero or the top something. You’re going to want to show you had the gameplay to get you there, and you even turned on your own to get you there. That is the game.” – Rupert Boneham, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains
