Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 4
AIRED:
On Day 4, the celebs decided they'd had enough of the Downtown Julie Brown/Alana Stewart war and demanded peace between the two divas. After Alana apologized for her crude behavior, she and Julie hugged and made up. The celebs then focused their attention on Nikki Schieler Ziering, whom they felt deceived them with phony crocodile tears after her croc pit challenge. It seems the celebs learned that after her last Bushtucker trial, Nikki was joking and laughing the whole way back to camp and only turned on the waterworks when she returned to face the other celebs. The celebs, especially Robin Leach and Melissa Rivers who had confronted the producers over the challenge, felt they were manipulated by Nikki and confronted her about her honesty (or lack of it). Nikki's pleas of sincerity caused arguments among celebs, who, in the end, decided to get over it.
Nikki then appointed Cris Judd as camp leader for the day, hoever, the celebs didn't show much respect for mild-mannered Cris, even after Tyson Beckford stepped in. Downtown Julie Brown, for one, found Cris's orders absurd, such as sweeping the steps when it's raining, and refused to capitulate to his demands and told him so. Not long after that poor Cris was hit on the head by a falling branch while describing his leadership troubles, but shook it off and was okay.
Nikki Schieler Ziering then faced her second Bushtucker trial in a row titled "Down Under," where she was literally buried alive. While Nikki managed to stay under in the dark for 4 1/2 minutes, she screamed "Get Me Out of Here!" after imagining a non-existent snake was crawling on her. For her efforts, Nikki scored 4 meals for the celebs to share.
Food, or lack of it, remained a big problem for the celebs, who hadn't had much to eat and were all constipated- despite eating prunes. To make matters worse, Bruce Jenner became "guardian of the toilet paper roll" when he demanded each celeb only use 4 sheets per wipe. Nikki, meanwhile, decided to shave her legs (against Tyson Beckford's advice) and the other celebs were astonished by her need to remain beautiful while they were downright dirty and unkempt.
Bruce Jenner and Downtown Julie Brown went off to find the day's celebrity chest, with Bruce doing all the work while Julie tagged along. After Bruce single-handedly found the chest, the other celebs answered the daily question incorrect and were rewarded with the booby prize- a variety of wigs and silly outfits, which they had to use to put on a fashion show. Later, the celebs modeled their new duds, including the daring Robin Leach who went full out in drag and Stuttering John Melendez, who wore little more than a G-string.
As the day wore on, the celebs felt homesick- for their loved ones and the comforts of their lifestyle. Camp leader Cris Judd finally won the respect of the other celebs when he made a chopping board for dinner. The celebs then loosened up after dinner, when they enjoyed 2 bottles of wine and started to act silly, especially Nikki and Tyson whose flirtations with each other increased. A tipsy Nikki even did a Marilyn Monroe impression for Stuttering John Melendez.
The action shifted LIVE as host John Lehr revealed the results of the previous night's voting for which celeb would take place in the next Bushtucker trial. Luckily, Nikki was spared, but unluckily for spoiled Alana Stewart, America chose her to participate in "Bobbing for Stars," where she would use only her teeth to grab stars in containers of rats, maggots and other slimy creatures. John Lehr then encouraged viewers to vote for the celeb they most wanted to participate in the next Bushtucker trial- swimming with leeches. Tune in tomorrow!!moreless
