DECEPTION AND DRAMA AMONG THE CONTESTANTS MARK EARLY TROUBLE IN THE GAME - A shocking announcement causes the dwindling number of contestants to lose one more.

Although Johnny (Johnny Wactor) and Irene (Irene Yee) have killed a deer, the camp’s feast is tempered by their fear of what the smell of blood and cooked meat might attract in the night.
