Like the noble Australian fish that is its namesake, the newly formed Barramundi tribe gives off a horrible stench as it begins to rot. In the first days following the merger, tensions simmer when the tribeís new flag, designed by Colby and featuring a white star on a field of blue with two red and white bars, disappears in the middle of the night. After a frantic search, it is discovered in Elisabethís hair. Upon being found out, the chagrined footwear designer exclaims, "My mom says, ëElisabeth, donít put rags in your hair!í but do I listen?" Then she cries.

Now that Jeff has been eaten up and spit out, the former Kucha tribe has particular trouble settling into the new arrangement. Outnumbered by the Ogakor, theyíre about to discover the true meaning of "Camp Carnage." Already weakened by cold-turkey withdrawal from Kucha Korn, Rodger begins to hallucinate. "The girls are coming. Set the table so we can woo them," he mutters every time Colby and Keith walk past. Jerri pulls Tina aside and asks, "You donít think Rodger had a stroke or anything? If he was going to have a stroke, what could a person do to make that happen? Youíre a nurse, right?"

The next immunity challenge is the most grueling yet, as players are presented with different types of food and attempt to not inflict violence on each other. "I would love a juicy, foot-long hot dog!" moans Jerri, glancing at Colby. "Well, Iíd love a few minutes of peace and quiet," he replies, "but it donít look like thatís gonna happen either."

"Omigod! Vanilla Tootsie Rolls!" screams Alicia. Jerri is appalled. "How can you eat that?" she asks. "I will always eat vanilla Tootsie Rolls!" Alicia snaps back. A shoving match ensues and Elisabeth takes advantage of the confusion to stuff an entire jarful of Skippy peanut butter into her mouth, causing Nick to retch. "Thorry," says Elisabeth. "By bom thays, ëElitabeth, don dalk wid your moud full!í bud do I litten?"

The challenge ends when Tina, having tasted wine for the first time only a day before, becomes distraught when no more is offered. "One more glass of wine, please!" she begs. "Just a sip. Whiskey, then. At least a frosty, refreshing Bud Light." Unable to obtain any alcohol, Tina begins shaking uncontrollably, and finally attacks a camera crew and demands that they bring her "whatever Mike was getting in the green kazoo."

At tribal council, Elisabeth attempts to appear less vulnerable by dressing in rags from head to toe. When Jeff Probst asks her how the game is going, she replies cryptically, "My mom says, ëElisabeth, youíre a stupid, worthless child! Iím gonna thrash you within an inch of your life if you donít get back in the basement and finish making our shoes.í But do I listen?" Then she swats at Amber, who is attempting to eat her headdress. Then she cries.
