Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Survivor: The Australian Outback briefly moved from CBS's Thursday-night schedule to a Wednesday berth in this episode. Now the tribes have merged into the single Barrumundi tribe, and now only nine castaways remain in the Outback. As competition heats to the boiling point, those winning the various Reward Challenges are most vulnerable to being voted off the show, as yet another player (who will be the first to join the jury deciding the fate of the others) finds out at episode's end. And as if that weren't enough, the food supply is rapidly diminishing.
