Days 22, 23, and 24 come and go for the castaways on the island of Koh Tarutao. The nagging question during this episode is: Will two of the original tribe members form new alliances -- even though the tribes still haven't merged? At least one alliance will probably not occur because one of the castaways is (to put it mildly) hygienically challenged, incurring the wrath of another. Also: chit-chat about recipes between the women leads to discomfort amongst certain of the men. Episode eight concludes as expected with one of the contestants being voted out of the running.
