On Kalabaw, Denise tries to blend in with her new family. Katie is happy with Denise because the tribe is split boys vs. girls. This makes it 4 vs 3 in favor of the girls.
Dana is sick; she can’t shake the cold. She feels dizzy, nauseous, and has a sharp pain in her stomach. She struggled to the rocks to throw up. Then, returned to camp to curl in a ball under the tarp to get warm. She is in bad shape.
The medics come with Jeff Probst. Jeff being Jeff interviewed her (like he is Oprah) on her pain. “What does the pain feel like? Tell us how does it feel?” Dana responded with “like a knife in my stomach.”
What does a knife to the stomach feel like? Has anybody ever had that happen? What if the actual feeling is not bad? I feel like it’s a bad analogy. How about, it feels like I have the case of the diarrhea and my stomach is in sharp pain. That is a pain we all can, unfortunately, relate to.
The medics examine her safe to compete. However, Dana doesn’t want to remain in the competition under her circumstance. She is done. After saying goodbye and sorry to her tribe, she screwed the girls; Katie in particular. Dana was her strongest ally.

Jeff Kent has trouble cutting the rope and Penner helps him finish.
