Episode #9 "The Pecking Order" (Nov 11)

Ami: "We shocked the shiznit out of them."

Chris: "Julie and Twila are at the bottom of the women's pecking order. The game's not over, anything can happen."

Sarge is ready to snap.

Skulls-a-fire Trivia Reward.Eliza pissed at Scout for being eliminated. Leann wins, takes Julie with her.

"Eliza could go before Chris."

Chris: "That challenge really showed weakness in the women's alliance. It showed people the pecking order."

While away at reward: Julie: "I really love these people." Leann: "Me too."

They bring back leftover chicken for the women. They save the bones for the men, and make them think that's what they all got.

Eliza finds a pig. Sarge and Twila want to eat it.

"Estrogen City."

Immunity Challenge. Ami wins. Ami worries that immunity makes her a target for women.

Chad and Chris talking with Scout about Eliza... Eliza and Ami talking... Ami may turn on Scout cause she's fraternizing with the men.

What is it with the pig?

Sarge and Twila re-bonding... Chad' s idea: The men with Twila and Eliza as an alliance. (No! Twila and Scout!)

Tribal Council: Rory Syndrome. Sarge is revealing too much! Is Jeff hypnotic? Ami keeps the immunity though she earlier thought it was a liability... Chris votes for Sarge! Has he allied with the women?

Sarge out.

Twila voted for Sarge! Under the radar: Leann? Chad?

Episode #10 "Protect us from the Butt Cracks." (Nov 18)

Twisty Rope Maze Reward Challenge. They keep blurring the video of Julie's butt crack, but there's cleavage galore! Chris-Chad-Eliza-Ami win. They win a feast trip. They trade the pig for another pig, which they leave behind. Chad: "Kava..."

Back at camp. The loser guys unite against Eliza.

Tall post Hug Immunity Challenge. Order out: Julie, Chris, Scout, Ami, Eliza, Leann, Chad. Twila wins!

Ami campaigning for (against) Chad.

Have they been editing Ami to seem more evil than she is? Like Lex?

Tribal Council. It never ceases to amaze how much people blab in TC. Chad voted out.

Episode #11 "Twila the Puppet Master" (Nov 25)

Chris "narcs out" Scout and Twila.

Trivia Quiz for Loved Ones Reward. Apple iChat product placement. One minute teaser talk with loved ones back in the States via iChat. Are the loved ones actually just around the corner? Crissy is Ami's girlfriend. Julie vs Eliza tiebreaker. Eliza wins. Yes, the loved ones are right there.

Scout doing damage control. "Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Jury."

Why do people swear on their family members? Twila swears on the name of her son.

Loved Ones Blind Man's Bluff Puzzle Immunity Challenge. Ami and her girlfriend win. They're kinda adorable together.

Leann-Scout-Ami-Twila Summit. Decide to vote for Eliza.

Chris is told that Eliza is next, and that he's safe, and he's amazed. "It can be set in stone," he says, "then five minutes later..."

But then Twila tells Chris there's a way he can change things. Twila as Puppet Master? Or did Scout put her up to it? Twila-Scout-Chris-Eliza turn on Leann.

Tribal Council. Chris, shut up! "Six women."

The impromptu alliance holds and they vote out Leann. Wow! It worked. Chris is about to start giggling. Ami is pissed. Jury is ecstatic.

Episode #12 "Exhausted" (Dec 2)

Ami working on discrediting Twila for swearing on her son then reneging.

Over & Under Water Obstacle Course Reward Challenge. For Pontiac G6, and a feast, shower and bed... 1st, 2nd and 3rd get to go on reward. They are exhausted halfway through challenge. Chris and Julie dead even for third on the final lap!!! That may have been the toughest challenge ever. Winners are Eliza, Ami and Chris.

Shuffle Board Immunity Challenge. Chris wins immunity. Eliza is swaying on her alliance with Tw, Sc, and Ch.

Tribal Council. Ami is being cool. Still trying to discredit Twila. She's really working it. But it fails and she is voted off.

I must admit, I'm a little sad to see her go.
