Episode Summary

Episode 11
As Day 11 began, Bruce Jenner was elected camp leader for the 2nd time. Although the celebs were familiar to his leadership style, some found him hard to take, such as Stuttering John Melendez, who fell asleep during Bruce's pep speech, which had been given numerous times before. Under Bruce's leadership, the celebs tried their best to prepare for an upcoming storm, but when the storm finally hit the camp, the celebs scrambled to keep the fire lit and Bruce Jenner's nice-guy facade began to crack.
After the storm, Melissa Rivers decided to bare all and pulled off her wet shirt while wearing just a bra. Melissa cried that no man would want to date her after seeing her unkempt condition on TV. However, Melissa pointed out that all the celebs, with the exception of Nikki Schieler Ziering, looked pretty bad. Nikki, meanwhile, shared with Downtown Julie Brown the power of being pretty, as she uses her looks and body to get what she wants.
Downtown Julie Brown and Stuttering John Melendez took part in the celebrity chest hunt, which was made all too easy by strategically placed red arrows pointing them in the right direction. However, the hard part was bringing the chest back to camp, as the chest was weighed down by its contents and extremely heavy. After being unable to carry it, Julie and John literally dragged it back to camp, where the celebs failed to answer the question of the day and were rewarded with the booby prize- a copy of Robin Leach's cookbook.
While on the celebrity chest hunt, Stuttering John Melendez and Downtown Julie Brown dished the dirt on their fellow celebs, revealing how close Bruce Jenner came to slugging Alana Stewart after she repeatedly asked how to boil water; how Nikki Schieler Ziering constantly manipulates others to help her out and how Tyson Beckford has 2 sides to his personality- a sweet nice guy and an "egomaniacal psychopath."
The celebs (with the exception of Tyson Beckford) all voted for Tyson Beckford to take part in the next Bushtucker trial, as he was the only remaining celeb who had not yet faced a trial. For his trial, Tyson had to swim in a rain forest pool and collect 7 stars from 7 different tubes which contained some "company," according to host John Lehr. Tyson scored 2 stars from the first 2 tubes, which contained a booby-trap of ballons and fake rubber snakes, however, Tyson got freaked on the third tube when he was confronted by a live python and he threw 2 of his stars away in a panic and only earned 1 star before his time ran out. Afterwards, Tyson raised ire in his fellow celebs when he claimed his trial was the hardest yet. However, his complaints fell on deaf ears with Downtown Julie Brown, who herself faced 3 trials in a row, Nikki Schieler Ziering (who faced the croc pit) and Stuttering John Melendez.
As Tyson only scored 1 star, the celebs had to split one meal and were pretty hungry at dinnertime. Tensions ran high between Bruce Jenner and Stuttering John Melendez after Bruce asked John what college he attended. It seems Bruce had asked John that question approximately 5-6 times that week but didn't pay attention or remember his response, which irritated John. Bruce, on the other hand, was irritated by John's sarcasm, but the two men quickly cleared the air.
The action shifted LIVE as host John Lehr announced that "Jungle Barbie" Nikki Schieler Ziering scored the least amount of votes from the previous night and would be leaving camp immediately. After saying goodbye to her fellow celebs, Nikki was interviewed by host John Lehr and described her experience as "grueling, miserable, scary." But the hardest part of her experience, according to Nikki, was putting up with the yelling and screaming of her other celebs. After a review of various clips showing how Nikki managed to look her best, despite her jungle surroundings, Nikki admitted to smuggling in sunscreen, a comb and a brush into camp to keep up her appearance. Nikki then denied any romance was brewing between her and fellow celeb Tyson Beckford. After a reunion with his sister, Nikki left the jungle and returned to her life of luxury. Tune in tomorrow for a Special 2-Hour Episode when a sixth person will be voted off!!moreless
