Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 2
AIRED:
On Day 2, the celebs woke up from their first night in the Australian rain forest, but faced the morning without luxuries or amenities, such as coffee or a hot shower. The celebs did find the bathing pool, where Nikki Schieler Ziering and Tyson Beckford stripped down and developed a mutual attraction for the other. Downtown Julie Brown was nominated as camp leader for the day as the celebs debated whether or not to boil the rain water. While hunting for firewood, Tyson Beckford and Cris Judd formed a tight friendship.
Maria Conchita Alonso and Stuttering John Melendez took part in the first of what will be a daily event- the hidden celebrity chest hunt. However, as they didn't look at a compass before heading out, they immediately got lost and proceeded in the wrong direction. Just as Stuttering John was about to give up, Maria found the treasure chest and they brought it back to camp. To get the prize inside the chest, however, the celebs had to answer one question correctly. However, if they answered incorrectly, they'd get a "cruel joke." The question posed to the celebs- "Who is more likely to be unfaithful in marriage- men or women?" Fortunately for the celebs, they got the right answer (women) and won the prize- coffee, milk and sugar.
Stuttering John Melendez (chosen via the Internet) had to take place in the second Bush-Tucker trial, which, unfortunately for him, combined two of his worst phobias- a fear of heights and a fear of bugs. For his trial, John (supported by a harness) had to climb a ladder against a tree and open five different globes containing spiders, flies, insects and bees and pull out 10 stars (which represented one meal for each celeb). Faced with a time limit, Stuttering John managed to capture 6 out of the 10 stars- but not before shrieking like a girl at the sight of the insects.
Later, Robin Leach, the dutiful water collector, and Bruce Jenner, who worked wonders with string, combined their talents to use the string and ponchos to collect the rain water. Meanwhile, the attraction between Nikki Schielier Ziering and Tyson Beckford simmered as both bared all and Nikki lathered Tyson up. Then, spoiled Alana Stewart had a blow-out with camp leader, Downtown Julie Brown, after Alana tried to take Cris Judd's ration of chocolate and Julie scolded her. After dinner, however, the celebs chilled out as they entertained each other with humorous raps about their fellow celebs.
Host John Lehr then appeared LIVE at the celeb camp and revealed the results of the previous night's telephone voting for which celeb would take place in the next Bush-Tucker trial- the crocodile pit! Unfortunately for Nikki Schieler Ziering, America chose her and she will face the croc pit in the next episode. Host John Lehr then encouraged viewers to vote for the celeb they wanted to take part in the next Bush-Tucker trial- being buried underground for several minutes!! Tune in tomorrow!moreless
