Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 7
AIRED:
The episode began with the a review of night 6. As a storm raged on, there was an uprising among the celebs, who were split on whether or not to bolt the show if producers didn't cave in to their demands. The next morning, on Day 7, Robin Leach handed over leadership of the camp to Melissa Rivers. As the sun came out, the celebs felt relieved that producers had given in to their demands. There was still plenty of tension, though, as Robin snapped at Nikki Schieler Ziering for sticking her personal fork into the community food (even though Nikki said Robin did the same thing minutes later). To lighten the mood around camp, Nikki gave facials to the other celebs, while Melissa Rivers encouraged Alana Stewart and Downtown Julie Brown to make peace. Meanwhile, it was learned that 2 days prior, Tyson Beckford had flew off the handle with producers, demanding to speak to his manager and attorney. Later, the other celebs debated whether Tyson had gone too far- with Alana Stewart, Bruce Jenner and Stuttering John Melendez agreeing that he did. But Tyson flat out refused to discuss his demanding behavior.
Meanwhile, Bruce Jenner and Maria Conchita Alonso set off to find the day's celebrity chest with Bruce steering Maria in the wrong direction. Good thing she didn't listen to him as she single-handedly found the chest. Back at camp, the celebs answered the question of the day correctly and were rewarded with the chest's treasure- fire resistant oven mitts and a campfire toasting grill.
To pass the time, Bruce hosted the "jungle Olympics," where Maria Conchita Alonso did a long jump, Tyson threw the shot put, Nikki did the limbo (a.ka. high/low-jump), Cris Judd ran a 500 meter relay from camp to the toilet without getting a roll of toilet paper wet, Stuttering John Melendez pole vaulted over Robin Leach, Downtown Julie Brown threw the javelin and Melissa Rivers did a 500 meter relay (which actually only consisted of her putting on her rain gear as fast as she could.)
Meanwhile, Downtown Julie Brown was nervous about facing her second Bushtucker trial in a row, but was given support by Alana Stewart, of all people. Julie's trial left her in the dark jungle at night for 140 minutes. Fortunately, Julie was able to win 10 stars for her and her fellow celebs, after sticking candle wax in her ears to drown out all the scary jungle noises. Unfortunately, for Julie, at the end of the episode, host John Lehr announced that America chose her YET AGAIN to participate in the next (and final) Bushtucker trial- the snake pit. Julie looked down right upset and host John Lehr split after revealing the bad news, but not before encouraging viewers to vote for the celeb they most want to win the title of King or Queen of the Jungle. Tomorrow night the celeb who receives the lowest numbers of votes will be asked to leave camp. Tune in tomorrow!!moreless
