Things got ugly – and fast – on “Survivor: Nicaragua” Wednesday night.
It started as the Espada tribe watched teammate Holly become unhinged after Jill collected a bucketful of snails for food. Holly snatched the pail and dumped its contents, and the group became convinced that she was going nuts for getting rid of a source of protein.
Things only worsened when Holly overheard Dan making fun of her, which prompted her to steal his $1,600 alligator shoes (who brings designer duds to play “Survivor”?!), fill them with sand, then sink them into a body of water. She later called a tribe meeting to admit her deed and apologize, but the damage was done.
“Holly keeps getting stranger and stranger,” Tyrone noted. “Every time she speaks, it becomes evident she’s crazy.”
But the younger La Flor tribe wasn’t immune to thievery either. Na Onka’s socks went missing, and she became convinced someone stole them. Her solution? Steal a tribemate’s socks – very dirty socks that happened to belong to Jud, whom she apparently hates – and put them on right away. (Eeew!)

The bad behavior on both tribes should’ve been plenty for one episode, but the thefts didn’t seem that bad compared to what went down when La Flor ended up at Tribal Council.
In answering the first question from host Jeff Probst, Shannon started a war against Chase, calling him out for his lack of integrity and loyalty because Chase was in two alliances. But things quickly backfired on him when Sash calmly suggested that Shannon may be putting a target on his own back with his actions.
What followed from Shannon was a seemingly unending string of homophobic comments directed at Sash that left the tribe in shock. Many of them may have gone into Tribal Council expecting to vote out Brenda, as Shannon had originally maneuvered to do, but after his display of hatred, the group overwhelming voted to unify the tribe and eliminate Shannon.
