Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The bloom is off the rose for the twelve remaining castaways as their fifteenth day in the Outback approaches. Six days remain before the inevitable merging of the two tribes, and alliances are already beginning to either solidify or unravel. Chief among the arguing points are personal hygiene (or lack of same) and the proper care and treatment of chickens. As the episode ends, a fifth castaway -- who'd been an early odds-on favorite to reach "ultimate survivor" status -- is voted out.
