'Survivor: Island of the Idols' Season 39 returned for a brand new episode on Wednesday night, and there was one contestant who was treated badly by her entire tribe. And that is none other than Karishma. 

It is good to see that 'Survivor', being ethnically diverse, adds new perspectives to the show and we witnessed that when Karishma opened up about being a married Indian woman and having to run around in her underwear makes her uncomfortable.

Karishma has always been someone who trusted her tribe, but fans and viewers didn't like it when the Lairo tribe didn't go to help her after she cut herself. Shocked and disgusted that no one cared about her injury even though they saw her lying on the ground with blood oozing through her finger, no one seemed to care. Emotionally affected and hurt that no one cared about her, Karishma said, “If I would have chopped my head off, they wouldn’t have flinched." 

That was not the only instance where her tribe let her down. After the immunity challenge, they continued to blame her for ruining the puzzle and not winning it. While she was not the only one in that challenge fixing the puzzle, it was Dean as well. They kept blaming Karishma, and in the end, decided to split the vote and vote her out of the competition. 

It was a traumatizing time for Karishma to see Tom go after her during the Tribal council, and having to face elimination for doing nothing that was her fault. Taking to Twitter post the episode, fans revealed how shocked and disgusted they were with the Lairo tribe after they mistreated Karishma. 

"From what I saw Dean sucked at the puzzle too. Quit blaming just Karishma. #Survivor," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "Why are the men all blaming Karishma when Dean was doing the puzzle too?? #Survivor." 

"Karishma bleeding out & no one came to her was v disappointing - Vince got blindsided is even more disappointing - fuck lairo this episode (w the exception of Karishma and Vince) - Karishma & dean on puzzle, but only Karishma got the blame? seriously? smh," said a fan. While another wrote, "Did I miss something? Why did Karishma get all the blame for losing the puzzle? Did Mr. “split the vote” not also do the puzzle? Why didn’t he get any blame? #survivor #rhap #thefuck?."
