Mad Scramble and Broken Hearts is the tenth episode of Survivor: All-Stars.
Early in the morning at Chapera, Rupert and Big Tom consider themselves the "Worker Bee's" of the camp, considering Amber, Boston Rob, Jenna, and Alicia are sleeping in. Rupert and Big Tom are doing things such as cutting some wood and spearfishing, the latter event has Big Tom catching his first fish.
Mogo Mogo receives Tree Mail about making "new friends", and believe they are merging with Chapera. They also receive paint, but don't put it on as they don't want to look like fools, as Lex puts it. On the other hand, Chapera wears the paint (the women make dots and arrows on them, the guys make muscular signs).
When the tribes meet Jeff the next day, he instructs the castaways to have a private chat with each other. The pairs are Boston Rob and Lex, Shii Ann, and Rupert, Kathy and Alicia, Big Tom and Jerri, and Jenna and Amber. Later on, Jeff asks the contestants to drop their buffs, and get new ones. It turns out that this was a tribe switch to make the tribes even. Every last Mogo Mogo goes to Chapera, and the entire Chapera tribe goes to Mogo Mogo, except Amber, who has entirely new tribemates.
At the new Mogo Mogo camp, the tribe does not celebrate considering how they lost Amber to the ex-Mogo Mogos and that their new camp was trashy. Chapera, however, celebrates because their new camp is organized and they got Amber on their team.
The tribes receive news about a Survivor history challenge, and meanwhile, Rob thinks up a plan to make Amber stay.
At the Survivor history challenge, Chapera and Mogo Mogo both get ten points, forcing a tiebreaker: write down the contestants voted out first in order. Mogo Mogo gets it right, and wins immunity. Before Chapera leaves, Rob tells Lex that if he "takes care of" Amber, he'll take care of him later in the game, Lex agrees, and Mogo Mogo hopes Amber will make it.
At Chapera, the alliance of Kathy and Shii Ann at first conclude to vote out Amber, but change their mind to Jerri because Boston Rob would get angry. Amber pleads her case to Lex, and he tells her that Jerri will go. To be straight up, Lex tells Jerri. Despite her efforts to keep herself in, Jerri is the ninth "All-Star" booted out in a 4-1 vote.
Immunity Challenge: Survivor History
