Ethan Zohn is definitely one of the most inspirational figures we have come across in the history of 'Survivor', and fans stan with this especially after seeing the two-time cancer survivor,  hike up and down a hill 20 times to collect firewood in order to gain one fire token. 

'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 returned on Wednesday night for an all-new episode titled, 'I Like Revenge'. While the veterans still in the game start to target each other, a whole different showdown takes place at the Edge of Extinction. Natalie, Amber, Dani, and Ethan who were booted, after receiving the most votes during tribal council were given a task they least expected.

On a brand new day at the Edge of Extinction, the contestants find a note written to them, that stated, they had to hike up and down the nearest hill where there were 20 logs of wood each, and they had to pick one by one and bring them back to the fireplace.

Natalie is a Crossfit trainer, so it was an easy fit for her, however., Amber and Danni did face their struggles hiking up and down the hill. Ethan on the other hand, started off at a good pace, even though when while nearing the end, he started to grow weak. On his 16th log down, he couldn't walk and collapsed by the rocks. They had to get a medic to see to him, while everyone was worried if he would be able to get back on his feet and complete the task, or if he would leave the competition.

Ethan got back up, never gave up, and went back uphill to collect his last four logs. During his last hike up, Natalie, Amber, and Dani hiked along with him to show their support. 

It wasn't an easy feat for Ethan, but he did prove that no matter what hits him, he will get back up, the same way he did when he beat cancer, not once but twice. Taking to Twitter post the episode, fans call him an inspiration.
