Anger, Tears and Chaos was the eleventh episode of Survivor: All-Stars.
At Chapera, Lex is saddened that not only did he eliminate his greatest ally, Jerri, but it was in the favor of Boston Rob. He assumes Boston Rob will not go back on his word, and he starts chopping wood.
At Mogo Mogo, everyone assumes Amber is gone, and a "mood" is around camp, as Jenna puts it. Boston Rob seems to be the most upset at the possibility because Amber was his best ally and date in the game. He knows he has to "watch both of his shoulders" at all times, and he and Alicia promise to never vote against each other.
In the challenge, Jeff reveals that Jerri was voted out, to the delight of the ex-Chaperas on Mogo Mogo especially when they're relieved that Amber is safe. He says that even though the contestants are still two tribes, the reward will be individual. Rupert ends up winning, and invites Jenna and Amber to join him for his reward, and enjoy it. During the reward, Jenna, Rupert, and Amber agree to go to the final three, but Amber already decided to go with Lex, Boston Rob, and Kathy.
The two tribes meet up with Jeff, and he announces that the tribes are merging at Saboga beach. Jenna, Alicia, and Amber work on the new tribe's name, and decide on Chaboga Mogo, a combination of the three original tribe names. Lex goes up to Boston Rob and asks if they're aligned, and Boston Rob says "I'll see what I can do". Lex then gets the feeling that he will be double-crossed after not receiving a straight answer.
Rob then goes up to Amber and says that they will pick off the original Mogo Mogo tribe, starting with Lex. Amber isn't sure, considering Lex saved her, but Rob convinces her otherwise. Amber says in a confessional that many deals are being promised from her and Rob to Lex and Kathy, Rupert, and Jenna, Big Tom, and even Alicia.
The newly merged tribe goes to the challenge field. Jeff instructs the first individual Immunity Challenge of the season. He also says that there will be two individual immunities. Kathy wins the female's necklace and Rob wins the male's necklace, ensuring that the two contestants from Survivor: Marquesas will not be voted off.
Before the vote, Rob goes up to Lex and says that the deal's off, which highly frustrates him. Lex and Rob then argue and fight over it, and Lex realizes he is outnumbered. He tries to rally Mogo Mogo to vote out Amber, but despite his efforts, Lex was voted out 7-2 and became the first member of the jury.
Challenge: Rock Bottom
The nine castaways are playing individually instead of as two teams. They have to dive down to retrieve a pot. The player without a pot is eliminated. After three rounds, they are diving for a heavy crate in the final, and must take it to shore. Two players are booted in each of three preliminary rounds.
Reward: Overnight resort stay
Winner: Rupert Boneham (shared with Amber Brkich and Jenna Lewis)
Challenge: Waiting to Exhale
This is a standard breath-holding contest with separate rounds for men and women, and thus, two immunity winners. In the final, the two finalists from each gender have to race to unclip buoys. This was based off the first individual Immunity Challenge in Survivor history.
Winner: Kathy Vavrick-O'Brien and Rob Mariano

|“||(voting for Amber) I'd much rather be casting this vote for your little errand boy, but you're just gonna have to do.||”|
|“||(voting for Lex) Hey, buddy, sorry about the vote. Thanks for keeping Amber around. I hope we can get over this, man.||”|
|“||(voting for Amber) (sighs) Amber... you didn't have to tell me that Boston Rob and you were gonna bring us to the final six. I just don't like getting lied to that big.||”|
|“||Wow. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed, but... I came into this game the wealthiest man in the world. I have an amazing wife, two beautiful sons, a loving family and the greatest group of friends a man could ever hope for. Everything above and beyond that is gravy, as far as I'm concerned. Big Tom, you get out there and give 'em hell. I'm gonna be rooting for you all the way. Love ya.||”|
