Episode Summary

Episode 12
The first hour of this 2-HOUR Episode was mostly recaps of the celebs' first 11 days in the jungle (with new footage added). Some of the new footage included scenes of the celebs sharing their bad habits around camp; Tyson Beckford and Cris Judd pulling practical jokes on their fellow celebs; and a contrast between the celebs' interviews before they came to camp (in which they described their individual strengths) and how they did or didn't live up to these strenths during their time at camp.
Before the first hour was over, host John Lehr interviewed LIVE the first two ousted celebs, Robin Leach and Alana Stewart. Robin revealed he had taking cooking lessons before arriving in Australia, which helped him in his role of camp chef. Robin was then joined by Alana Stewart, whom he hadn't spoken to since leaving camp. They both stated they bore no ill will towards each other, despite their differences in camp.
The second hour picked on Day 12 of the celeb camp, as the celebs were depressed by the departure of Nikki Schieler Ziering. Back at her hotel, a refreshed and beautified Nikki stated she adored her fellow celebs and only had the nicest things to say about them.
Stuttering John Melendez and Cris Judd then created a "fart dance" as John danced to the fart noises Cris made using an Aboriginal horn. Later, John faced peril in the jungle while collecting firewood with Cris. Alerted by a sound man, John realized a venomous spider was crawling on his chest, which spooked John, who dropped the firewood and shook off the spider. While the incident proved frightening to John, Cris couldn't help but laugh at John's predicament.
Bruce Jenner volunteered for his 2nd Buschtucker trial and proved a champ when he earned all 6 stars for his fellow celebs. His trial: catching stars while being showered by oil, worms, crickets, beatles cockroaches and turkey feathers. When the trial was over, Bruce was covered with insects and feathers but decided not wash off right then and there. A filthy Bruce returned to camp to show the other celebs what he had done for them. However, Tyson became resentful when the other celebs congratulated Bruce on his trial. Tyson still maintained that his trial was harder and privately accused the others celebs of being jealous of him(??).
The celebs then had some fun when they were given a videocamera and allowed to film themselves. Stuttering John Melendez did his best impression of "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin while capturing the other celebs on camera. However, the celebs got a nasty surprise when the meals Bruce Jenner won during that day's Bushtucker trial arrived- two unplucked dead chickens, with head and feet attached. After plucking and cutting the chicken, though, the celebs cooked at ate the birds.
Later, Tyson got into it with Downtown Julie Brown when he accused her of snapping at him. However, Stuttering John Melendez observed that the snapping was mutual between Tyson and Julie and not as one-sided as Tyson seemed to think. Tyson still cried that the others didn't thank him after his failed Bushtucker trial, but Stuttering John Melendez and Downtown Julie Brown didn't think his complaints had any merit.
After dinner, the celebs got another surprise- letters from their loved ones back home. However, not every celeb was especially happy after their letters were read. Melissa Rivers appeared upset that her famous mother seemed to criticize her, even in jest, and confided in Downtown Julie Brown that her mother is always critical of her. Meanwhile, after an emotional letter from Stuttering John Melendez's wife was read, Cris Judd, reflected on his own love life and wondered if he'd ever find true love again.
The action shifted LIVE as host John Lehr announced that Tyson Beckford would be the next celeb to leave. After Tyson bid adieu to his fellow celebs, he told John Lehr he had no trouble surviving the jungle elements- surviving his fellow was the hardest. After a recap of Tyson's memorable moments at camp, he denied any future romance with fellow ousted celeb Nikki Schieler Ziering. Tyson was then surprised with a LIVE reunion with another ousted celeb, his new buddy Robin Leach. The remaining celebs, meanwhile, were shocked by Tyson's unexpected departure. Tune in tomorrow when a sixth celeb will be voted off!moreless

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Downtown Julie Brown (reading aloud Stuttering John Melendez's letter from his wife): P.S.: So, you look like your are getting pretty handy in the jungle. Maybe when you get home, you can take out the trash.

      • Stuttering John Melendez (imitating Steve Irwin while commenting on Melissa Rivers): The most dangerous animal of all! A Jewish princess without her migraine medication!

      • Bruce Jenner: Tyson thought his trial was probably the hardest trial that anybody's had to go through in the history of mankind.

      • Host John Lehr (commenting on Nikki Schieler Ziering's departure): The sun had come out, she was wearing her bikini. Why did you do it, America?

      • Downtown Julie Brown (after Nikki Schieler Ziering's departure): Now, I can actually put my bikini on.

      • Alana Stewart: Inside I'm like a neurotic mess. Really, I am like a female Woody Allen.

      • George Hamilton (reflecting on his ex-wife Alana Stewart's Buchtucker trial, in which she faced down rats): Rats would take their furry little hats off, if they could, and offer them to her as a professional courtesy because they know they met someone of their own family that can outfox them.
