Panicked, Desperate, Thirsty as Hell was the second episode of Survivor: All-Stars.
|“||Last night was the most miserable night of my life, I tried to sleep but I didn't get a single wink of sleep all night long.||”|
|“||I never thought I would be so happy to see tropical rain even though last night we were like animals gone wild.||”|
|“||We have got a overweight, gay naked man walking around, and no one seems to let it bother them.||”|
|“||Alicia is talking a little too much. She walks around giving orders constantly. She has got a big mouth and she needs to learn to shut it.||”|
At Saboga, everyone is down because they still don't have fire and they lost Tina at the last Tribal Council. On the bright side, Rudy entertains his tribe with stories about fighting in Vietnam, and Jerri calls him "one of a kind".
At Mogo Mogo, everyone is trying to collect some rain, because the water they have has brain parasites. Richard sees this as the perfect opportunity to walk around naked and does it, to Lex's enjoyment and Colby's annoyance.
At Chapera, the tribe is also collecting rain, just like Mogo Mogo. They sing in glee about finally getting clean water.
Every tribe receives a box, and no matter how much they want to open it, they can't because the contestants don't have keys to unlock and don't want to upset Jeff.
At the Reward Challenge, the three tribes start out neck and neck, but Rudy injures his ankle. Regardless, Saboga has a lead. They retain it, and Richard has trouble, and Saboga wins. Jeff reveals the box contains rice, but strikes a deal. If Saboga gives away their won blankets, they get flint, a pot, and a clue to the first key of their rice box. The catch is that if Saboga does it, Mogo Mogo and Chapera get it too. They accept the offer.
Back at Mogo Mogo, Richard is surprised that Tina was voted out for the first time, and knows that the winners are being targeted. However, he thinks he will stay.
Chapera is finally able to get fire due to the flint, and are excited that they can finally boil the water. Meanwhile, Rob C. is glad that he was not a winner, unlike Tina.
Back at Saboga, they are also able to finally get fire (with flint), and Rupert literally jumps in joy. Meanwhile, Jenna L. talks to Ethan about possibly staying if he proves himself and might make it to Day 9.
Unlike Chapera and Saboga, Mogo Mogo is still unable to get fire, even with flint.
Mogo Mogo finally have fire. After that, they put their attention to finding the box keys, and find the first one (it was deep in the cave).
At Saboga, Rudy walks around, limping with a sore ankle he received at the Reward Challenge. Despite him saying it will be back to normal in about a week, his tribe is still concerned.
At the Immunity Challenge, Chapera has an early lead, coming in first place, with Mogo Mogo coming in second, sending Saboga to Tribal Council for the second time in a row.
Saboga is thinking about who to vote off, and Ethan is insisting to Jenna L. and Jerri that if they want to win challenges, then Rudy has to go. They talk with Rupert about it, but he wants to vote off Ethan, as he won before. To increase his chances of staying and Rudy going, Ethan goes out and tries to catch fish, but comes out with nothing. Later, Rupert does catch one.
At Tribal Council, the Rudy-Rupert alliance votes for Ethan, and he votes for Rudy. Jenna L. and Jerri see Ethan's point and side with him for once, and Rudy is the second "All-Star" to go.
Challenge: Stairway to the Stars
The tribes would need to swim out to retrieve logs that are adrift at sea, with each tribe losing a member after each plank was recovered so that only one castaway would be left to retrieve the final log. The first tribe to build the stairway and use it to reach a platform would win reward.
Reward: Tarp and blankets
Additional Stipulation: The first placing tribe will have a choice between keeping their reward of tarp and blankets, or they would exchange it for a piece of flint, an extra cooking pot and a clue to the whereabouts of the first key to their tribe's rice crate. If the winning tribe picks the flint, pot and clue, the two losing tribes would also get the same prize.
Winner: Saboga (chose to give up tarps and blankets in exchange for flint; Chapera and Mogo Mogo also receive reward)

| VOTED OFF:|
|“||(voting for Rudy) Rudy, it was an honor to be on your team, but this is purely strategical.||”|
|“||(voting for Ethan) Ethan, you're tough. Rudy and I made a pact, and I am not voting for Rudy. I gotta vote for you, Ethan.||”|
|“||I talked to these people about two hours ago, and everything was all set up to vote Ethan off, and, uh, I can see Ethan voting against me, but I can't see the other two people voting against me. And if I was them, I'd stay clear of me. I got a lot of friends. That's about all I got to say.||”|
