A gaunt Lindsay breaks down as the effects of starvation set in on The Wheel

The horrific reality of starvation starts to set in for contestant Lindsay Phenix on The Wheel this week — as she breaks down after running out of food.

Just three contestants are left on Discovery’s survival show going into the episode, Lindsay, Luke Soderling and Adam Kimble.

Fish becomes the focus for all three contestants, with Luke trying to land the first one from the tundra, while Adam’s net unravels in the Bush Plains.

But Lindsay has had repeated failures with catching fish, and when she uses up the last of her rations things come to a head.

Having lost a large amount of her body weight, the effects of starvation are starting to set in — including stopping her menstrual cycle completely.

And she breaks down as the realization hits her of the do-or-die situation that she’s ended up in.

Three contestants have already been eliminated, with Kat Dellinger first to drop followed by Josh Morin and then Shon Joyner.

The Wheel airs Fridays at 10/9c on The Wheel.
