          Dr. Phil To ‘Survivor’ Todd Herzog: ‘You Just Don’t Ever Surrender To The Disease’


          November 23, 2016

          After struggling with alcoholism for years, Todd Herzog, who gained fame when he won Survivor: China in 2007 gets another lifeline from Dr. Phil.

          Watch the video above as Dr. Phil explains, “You just don’t ever surrender to the disease. It’s like you’re in a tug of war. The disease is on that end and we’re on this end. I’m just not ever going to drop my end of the rope because when you do that the disease wins … That’s just simply not something I’m willing to do.”
