Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 9
AIRED:
As Day 9 began, Robin Leach's departure left the camp in shock as the other celebs were sad to see him go first. Hardest hit by Robin's departure was Melissa Rivers and Tyson Beckford. Alana Stewart, however, seemed relieved by his ouster because she didn't want to be the first to go and because she felt he was too bossy. Alana then chose Stuttering John Melendez as the camp leader of the day, as she wanted the day to be relaxed and didn't want control-freak Tyson Beckford in charge.
Meanwhile, back at his hotel, Robin Leach offered the dish on his life at camp with his fellow celebs, where he dissed some (e.g., Alana Stewart) while praising others (e.g., Melissa Rivers, Cris Judd). Back at camp, Alana Stewart tried unsuccessfully to fill Robin Leach's role as the camp cook with disastrous results.
Host John Lehr then instructed the celebs that they had to choose among them who would participate in the next Bushtucker trial (as the audience no longer voted for the trials). A willing Bruce Jenner gamely volunteered and had to climb his way up a series of waterfalls while retrieving 9 dinner stars along the way. Proving his Olympic abilitiy, Bruce scored all 9 stars with time to spare.
Meanwhile, Downtown Julie Brown and Cris Judd searched for and quickly found the celebrity chest. However, the chest was chained up and the key to unlock the chain was tied up very high up a tree. To retrieve the key, Julie had to get into a harness while Cris, using a rope, raised her until she was high enough to reach it. After Julie nabbed the key, they took the chest back to camp where the celebs discussed the question of the day. However, learning the prize was fresh-baked browines, the celebs, led by Tyson, took to smelling the chest to determine the right answer and were successful in scoring the desserts.
After dinner, the celebs discussed plastic surgery and Melissa Rivers offered info about her famous mother's nips and tucks. Stuttering John Melendez accused Bruce Jenner of being extremely vain, but Bruce then elicited laughter from the celebs when he passed gas. Tyson Beckford, meanwhile, faced danger when he found a snake that had invaded the celeb camp and security was called in to remove it. Snake hysteria took over the camp as Stuttering John Melendez revealed to Melissa Rivers that Tyson was afraid of snakes and had conspired with Cris Judd to nominate Bruce Jenner to take place in the rest of the Bushtucker trials.
The action shifted LIVE as host John Lehr made his way to the celeb camp and revealed which celeb would be next to go. Not surprisingly, Alana Stewart received the least amount of votes and was extremely relieved to bid adieu to the celeb camp and return to her life of luxury. During an interview with host John Lehr, Alana discussed her infamous fight with Downtown Julie Brown (in which, she fantasized about punching her) and then reviewed clips of her memorables moments (such as facing down a possum). The other celebs, however, wasted no time in divying up Alana's possessions. Tune in tomorrow when a 3rd celeb will be voted off!moreless
