I've Been Bamboozled! is the fifth episode of Survivor: All-Stars.

Story

Day 13

The three tribes find bundles of bamboo along with their Tree Mail and are asked to build a raft for the Reward Challenge. Saboga makes an elaborate raft. However, Mogo Mogo's raft is built with laziness, merely being a bundle of bamboo, which Richard Hatch thinks will not be swift. At Chapera, the tribe constructs a more organized one, which Susan Hawk pees on to christen it.

At the Reward Challenge, host Jeff Probst says that the first and second tribes to finish will get the final clue to the final key to their Buried Treasure, which is now useless to Chapera, as they had already found it. However, Jeff reveals an even bigger twist. The tribe that finishes last will be dissolved and absorbed by the other tribes. Mogo Mogo finishes first, followed by Chapera. Saboga comes in last and is dissolved. Chapera and Mogo Mogo absorb two members each of the dissolved tribe.

For coming in first, Mogo Mogo gets the first pick. They choose Ethan Zohn first because they want him gone. Chapera then chooses Rupert Boneham for his extreme likability. Mogo Mogo then tries to think of which Saboga girl Ethan did not bond as strongly with, so they choose Jerri Manthey, leaving Jenna Lewis to go to Chapera.

Unlike Mogo Mogo, Chapera does not target the two newcomers. Instead, Amber Brkich and Rob Mariano invite Jenna L. and Rupert in their alliance, which the latter two accept.

Day 14

The first thing Mogo Mogo does in the morning is look for the final key, which they find. Unfortunately, the rice is rotten, so they still need fish.

Ethan decides to go spearfishing and comes back with a fish, to Richard's jealousy. Later on, Richard dives down, and comes back with two large fish, though Ethan never intended to step on his toes.

Day 15

During the Immunity Challenge, it is neck and neck between Chapera and Mogo Mogo, during which Richard gets naked and rubs up against Susan. Strategy comes in when all of Chapera jumps off so that Rob M. can run the course because he does best at balance. Chapera ends up winning, and Mogo Mogo has to vote someone out.

Heading back, Chapera celebrates their victory and Susan admits that she wants Richard to be voted out for what he did to her.

At Mogo Mogo, Colby Donaldson talks to Ethan in the woods, and proposes Richard's blindside. Colby tells Ethan that Richard thinks that Ethan is going, but that he will save him if he votes for Richard. Ethan accepts the offer, because that way, he at least gets a 50-50 shot. Colby then talks to Lex van den Berghe about it, and he agrees, so they have three people of seven in the deal.

Colby then approaches his old The Australian Outback rival Jerri to get the needed fourth vote to get rid of Richard. However, she feels that it does not make sense to do that, as Colby "screwed her over" last time they played together.

Lex then approaches Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien and Shii Ann Huang for the same topic, but they are unsure, as they expect that Ethan will be going home.

Jerri wants to side with Richard and tries to get the other girls' approval, but Kathy and Shii Ann are still conflicted. She then tells Richard about the deal to vote him our and he surmises that the only way that could happen was Colby, Ethan, and Lex working together. In a confessional, Richard explains his counter strategy: form an alliance with the girls to vote out the three guys plotting his doom.

Jerri then tells Richard that he has her vote 100% if Colby goes first, to which Richard agrees, and Kathy finds herself in the middle.

At Tribal Council, Colby, Ethan, and Lex vote for Richard, and Richard votes for Colby. Jerri, Kathy, and Shii Ann ultimately side with the guys, and Richard is voted out 6-1, but not before yelling "I've been bamboozled!", much to the amusement of his tribemates and Jeff. After Jeff snuffs his torch, Richard dances as he leaves.

Voting Confessionals

(voting for Colby) It does come down to this. You really could have trusted me. I was-- I was on your side. I know that's hard to believe, but it's true.

Richard


(voting for Richard) Hatch, you're a hell of a player, and you almost had me convinced I can trust you. But my gut told me not to. I'm not going to. Best of luck.

Colby



Final Words

Oops! (laughs) So much for what I thought. I'm gone. How much fun is Survivor? Yeah, I was blown out of the water today and didn't even know it. I've never had my torch snuffed. I've never had it put out, and here I am, I'm gone. I'm gone. Oh, fifth out of the game. I wanted the check again. Damn.
