^1 In Sour Grapes, Jenna had won Individual Immunity, but gave it to Heidi during Tribal Council.
Jenna returned to Survivor and was assigned to the Mogo Mogo tribe. Jenna originally had plans to start an all-female alliance with fellow tribemates Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien and Shii Ann Huang, but things were quickly broken up when the first Survivor winner, Richard Hatch, overheard them scheming on the first day and reported it back to the two other tribe members of Mogo Mogo. Mogo Mogo need not worried though, as the tribe won the first two Immunity Challenges.
However, from Days 6-8, Jenna revealed that she wasn't as focused on the game, stating that she "felt a vibe" that her mother's condition was worsening. Kathy saw she wasn't eating and told her to eat something. When Jenna told Kathy about her mother's declining health, Kathy comforted her and told her she wouldn't hate her if she quit. When the tribes convened at the supposed Immunity Challenge in Day 9, Jenna decided to quit the game, regretting leaving her dying mother, who was in a battle with cancer. Amber Brkich from rival tribe Chapera gave Jenna a hug after getting Jeff Probst's approval. After Jenna announced she was withdrawing from the game, Jeff called in a boat for her, cancelled the Immunity Challenge and she received hugs from all remaining players in the game. While walking to the boat, Jeff told her they were thinking of her. She went home and rushed to her mother's bedside. Eight days after Jenna returned home, her mother passed away.
