The campers square off in a challenge where they must trap a certain animal. One person gets a delicious meal as a reward for catching their animal first, while two people form a temporary alliance. Two people get shot with a tranquilizer dart by an unstable contestant while another ends up having very bad luck. This all leads up to someone getting voted off once again.


The episode opens with the seven remaining campers walking through the camp. Owen apologetically approaches Izzy with a handful of flowers with romantic intent. She bitterly ignores him because she is still mad at him for potentially putting her life in danger when he pushed her into the path of a "psycho killer" in the previous episode just to save himself. Owen tells her that he would never abandon her, but then suddenly disappears. When the other campers gather to ask where Owen is, they find him caught in a snare trap, hanging upside-down in the tree above them. Another trap is triggered and a wooden cage falls on top of the rest of the campers. Chris arrives on the scene with a beaver on his head and a hunting knife to tell them to meet in the main lodge for breakfast and the next challenge. He then throws the knife to cut Owen from the tree, who lands on top of the cage, causing it to open and release all of the campers.


The campers' food is worse than usual.

In the main lodge, the campers are served paste, while Chris details the next challenge: trapping a wild animal and bringing it back to camp unharmed. After a brief lesson on rangers and game wardens, they are told the prize for winning: a meal of all their favorite foods. The campers meet at the boat house for their animal assignments by drawing lots. Owen gets a chipmunk, Leshawna draws a frog, Duncan picks a raccoon, Gwen ends up with a duck, Geoff gets a beaver, Izzy receives a deer and Heather ends up with a bear, much to her disappointment. Izzy seems to be excited to be "baggin' a doe". Declaring the challenge to be impossible, Heather almost quits, until Chris tells her the punishment for failing the challenge: cleaning the communal washrooms, which are a mess thanks to Owen overdoing it on breakfast. Heather reluctantly agrees to participate in the challenge. The campers are given 60 seconds in the boat house to collect anything useful for trapping their respective animals. Inside, the campers rummage around; Heather and Gwen argue over a net until Gwen spots some duck bait. Duncan is indecisive about what to take, but settles on a chainsaw; and Izzy grabs several crates and runs out just before time is out, finding a tranquilizer gun in the process. Heather still feels she has no chance of catching a bear, and desperately goes through Izzy's crates. Knowing Heather is serious competition, Duncan approaches her and offers to help her out in exchange for forming an alliance to get to the final two. Heather rejects the offer, but Duncan figures she'll be back.


Izzy proves to be very dangerous with her tranquilizer gun.

Out in the woods, Gwen lays down piles of duck bait to lure the duck to her, but as it gets close, it sees her, sticks out its tongue and runs away in a similar to the roadrunner. Leshawna locates a frog and tries to trap it with a bucket. The frog leaps away several times, but when Leshawna gets near, she falls into a deep puddle and declares war on the frog. At the bear cave, Heather tries to lure the bear out with a pail of garbage, but a roar from inside scares her away. Duncan finds a lone raccoon and tries to sweet talk it into following him, but a large band of raccoons comes up from behind. Duncan is about to confront the lot with the chainsaw, but they stack themselves on top of each other, forming a large furry monster that resembles a transformer robot. Izzy is hunting deer near the camp and fires three tranquilizer darts at the nearest thing that moves, Chef. Gwen is seen chasing the duck, while Heather runs past both of them. The raccoon monster chases Duncan, firing off raccoons from it's "arm cannon" until one knocks him off a cliff. Duncan recovers, only to find the furry beast sitting on his head.

Owen climbs a tree to catch a chipmunk, and he drones on about being a naturalist and being a friend to all living creatures, trying to reason with the chipmunk to come quietly. After declaring he loves it, the rodent bites Owen on the nose, and the tree branch he is on collapses. Elsewhere in the woods, a unicorn stops at a pond for a drink of water, then collapses a when Izzy nails it with a tranquilizer. Heather is back at camp complaining about catching a bear when Gwen runs in, luring the duck with bait; she calls out to Heather to open the cage, and Gwen tosses the bait inside, catching her animal, and winning the challenge. Gwen goes on about what she wants to eat, naming various "duck" related foods, when Duncan arrives, ripping the raccoon off his head, and tossing it in the cage. Duncan repeats his offer to Heather, showing her a pair of deer antlers from Paintball Deer Hunter, in need of help and a new alliance, Heather accepts.


The beavers' dinner is interrupted by Geoff.

At a beaver dam, Geoff swims underneath to find a family of beavers sitting at a dinner table in their modestly decorated home, who then slap him with their tails. Geoff tries to be friendly with them, telling them not to get him angry, but they ignore this and continue to beat him. High in the sky, the yellow airplane from previous episodes is flying overhead. However one of Izzy's tranquilizer darts hits it in the wing, causing it to plummet to the ground. Leshawna tries again to catch the frog, this time using a piece of cheese on a stick, the frog shows little interest, and Leshawna approaches closer but falls in another deep puddle. Owen is still chasing the chipmunk, this time on the ground, but he isn't paying attention and runs into a low hanging tree branch. Duncan is explaining his plan to catch a bear, involving Heather wearing the deer outfit and luring the bear back to camp; in the confessional, Duncan reveals that his plan is a win-win for him, as he either gets an alliance with Heather, or she gets eaten by the bear.

Heather ends up on the receiving end of Izzy's hunting skills.

Back at camp, Geoff brings the entire beaver dam to the cage and dumps the family of beavers into it. A very muddy Leshawna arrives next with the frog in the bucket and dumps it in too. With a camouflage hat and wooden antlers, Izzy is searching for a deer and after believing that she has found one, shoots it with a tranquilizer dart. Thinking she has succeeded, she heads towards the fallen animal when the bear runs past, followed by Duncan. Duncan sees Izzy and asks if she's seen Heather, who then stumbles out of the brush and collapses with the tranquilizer dart stuck firmly in her butt. Owen has chased the chipmunk all the way to the camp and is trying to corral it into the cage, running all over the place and even crashing into the table where Gwen is trying to eat her specially prepared victory dinner; eventually the chipmunk goes in the cage, and Owen tells Chris to close the door, but he closes it after Owen runs into the cage behind the chipmunk. Owen is now in the cage with the other caught animals and tries to be nice to them, but they attack him instead.


Izzy throws a smoke bomb once she gets eliminated, disappearing in a puff of smoke.

At the campfire ceremony, everyone sits down to receive their marshmallows, except for a paralyzed Heather who is strapped to a board, with the so-called "butt dart" still in place. Chris tosses out the marshmallows to Geoff, Owen, Leshawna, Duncan, and bounces one off Heather's head; leaving Gwen and Izzy as the final two. While Chris is drumming up the suspense, a semi-conscious Heather tells him to just give it to Gwen already, so he does. Izzy accepts the defeat graciously, then throws a smoke bomb on the ground, and disappears. With Heather being the only contestant left who did not capture their animal, she is the one who has to clean the washroom. Due to her injury, she asks Duncan for help.

At the washroom, Duncan is inside cleaning while Heather is outside bossing him around and filing her nails, despite the fact that she is supposed to be paralyzed. When Duncan sticks his head out the door, he sees that Heather is fine, but she then goes back to acting paralyzed. When he asks about her paralysis, she tells him that it's coming back, like the memories of how he got her shot, which she will never let him forget. Duncan backs down and returns to scrubbing the showers, which Heather tells him to do with Gwen's toothbrush.

Still in the running




  • This is the first elimination episode where immunity is unobtainable through the challenge, as Gwen is in the bottom two despite winning.
  • With Izzy's elimination, all of the official couples at this point have been separated.
  • With Izzy's elimination, all original female members of the Killer Bass have been eliminated.
  • Izzy's reason of elimination in this episode is similar to Sadie's in Who Can You Trust?, as their uncontrolled shootings caused their fellow team members, Heather and Courtney respectively, to be knocked out inadvertently.
  • This is the only episode to have both the warning intact along with the credits at the end when aired on the ABC.
  • Like with Episode 19, this episode was in PAL tone when aired on the ABC.


  • This marks the first episode in which all of the remaining contestants use the confessional.
  • Owen once again gives narrations while trailing an animal, which he previously did in Paintball Deer Hunter when chasing DJ dressed as a deer.
  • Izzy mentions the time when she scared her team by dressing up as a bear in The Sucky Outdoors.
  • This is the second time Izzy leaves the show through unconventional methods, this time throwing a smoke bomb on the ground and disappearing once it clears.


  • The title of the episode could be a parody of the series, "Girls Gone Wild".
  • This episode includes several references to classic movies and TV shows:
    • Gwen's duck behaves like the Looney Tunes character, the Roadrunner, both in its running style and capabilities, and in the way it sticks its tongue out at Gwen and kicks up its heels before dashing off. Gwen stands in for Wile E. Coyote in these scenes.
    • The Transformers: Duncan's line, "That's more than meets the eye." The raccoons join together as one, similar to the Combiner teams (Constructions, Aerialbots, etc.)
    • The roar that the assembled raccoons give out is similar to Godzilla's.
    • The Incredible Hulk: Geoff's line, "Beavers, don't make me angry... you wouldn't like me when I'm angry!"
    • Leshawna, in pursuit of her frog, encounters the bottomless puddle immortalized in the Laurel & Hardy films.
  • Izzy mentions the famous artist, Vincent Van Gogh during one of her confessionals.


  • When the contestants are seen running after Chris starts the challenge, Geoff's eyes are black instead of blue.
  • When Geoff goes into the beaver dam, his hat is misshapen due to being wet. However, when the beaver hits him with its tail, his hat looks normal again.
    • Also, when he is in the dam, the blue patch on his hat is not blue, but the same color as the rest of his hat.
  • When Gwen and Heather are fighting over the net, Gwen hits Heather in the head, but it's Gwen's voice that says "Ow!" in response to the hit.
