It also saw the unmasking of a thief. Naonka, who previously was seen packing food into her pockets and bra, took things a bit further this week, walking off with the tribe's frying pan and and flour as well as assorted fruits and vegetables. She reasoned that she deserved it because she had gotten the smallest tortilla at breakfast.

With her own oddball thinking, she shared her secret with Alina, whom the rest of the tribe wanted to vote out. She said she was hoping that if she made it to final three, Alina on the jury would remember this kindness and vote for Naonka.

But when the theft was discovered, Naonka confessed and threw Alina to the wolves, saying she knew about the theft and said nothing.

Naonka escaped with some stern comments but Alina, whom Benry curiously called a "dirt squirrel," was ousted.
