Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 6
AIRED:
As Day 6 began, the celebs were pounded by rain, which flooded the camp and drenched their beds. Host John Lehr explained the celebs faced more rain in the last 4 days than Austalia usually has in a year. Robin Leach then nominated himself as camp leader of the day and quickly took charge, assiging chores to the other celebs. His main objective- to keep the camp clean. However, as the day wore on, the celebs went to the producers with a list of demands, such as a tarp, dry beds, clothes and towels, and threatened to walk out if their demands weren't met.
Tyson Beckford and Nikki Schieler Ziering took part in the celebrity chest hunt and found the chest, despite the downpour. After bringing it back to camp, the celebs got the question of the day right and won towels, body scrubbers and massage oils. Meanwhile, Tyson Beckford complained that Bruce Jenner was trying to horn in on his tight friendship with Cris Judd by taking Cris's attention away at every opportunity. However, as Tyson explained, he didn't really care because he and Cris would still be hanging out once the show's over.
Meanwhile, Downtown Julie Brown was irritated by Alana Stewart's constant whining. When she was chosen to take place in the next Bushtucker trial, Julie was glad to temporarily get away from Alana. However, once she faced her trial, it was a different story. To earn 10 dinner stars, Julie had to sit in a tank full of leaches, removing one star at 30 second intervals. After 5 minutes, however, Julie could no longer take the pain of the leeches (which she equated to bee stings) and got out of the tank. Julie won 5 stars but beat her intended goal of earning only 1 star.
As the rain continued to pour, Robin Leach and Melissa Rivers went to the producers and threatened a walk out by all 10 celebrities. All the celebs then made their way to the Bush Telegraph confessional hut and demanded more food and dry clothes. However, talk of a walk out divided the camp as some celebs, such as Stuttering John Melendez, refused to go. After the celebs were provided with canopies for their beds and a crew came in to drain trenches around camp, Robin Leach still insisted the celebs walk out, with Melissa Rivers and Tyson Beckford siding by him. However, his attempted revolt failed when some of the other celebs- Bruce Jenner, Alana Stewart, Maria Conchita Alonso, Stuttering John Melendez and Cris Judd opted to stay.
As the action resumed LIVE, it appeared that all 10 celebs had stayed (for at least 1 more day anyway). Host John Lehr then announced the results of last night's voting for the celeb who would take place in the next Bushtucker trial- spending a night in the pitch-black forest. And the unfortunate celeb chosen by America was Downtown Julie Brown for the second time in a row. John Lehr then encouraged viewers to vote for the celeb they most wanted to take place in the next Bushtucker trial, which would involved both "will and fortitude." Tune in tomorrow!!moreless
