That was fun seeing them actually hunt and kill something. He didn't know what he was talking about. Draining the blood has no effect on trichinosis. It is in the muscles. Draining the blood though was a wise move, though. re: this season. I suspect the pig was planted there, and agree with the comment about the producers telling the players they couldn't kill it. One of the woman commented about keeping it as a pet. It was a small pig but would have made for quite a feast.
