Steve "Chicken" Morris was placed on the Zhan Hu tribe at the start of the season. When they reached their camp, Chicken began to give various suggestions on how to better the shelter. This irritated several of the others, so he decided to take a more "laid-back" attitude towards camp life. This led to Chicken refusing to give his opinion on anything camp related, still bothering his tribemates. After Zhan Hu lost the first Immunity Challenge, Chicken wanted to vote out Ashley Massaro due to her illness that was not improving. Dave Cruser was on his side, due to his personal conflict with Ashley. However, Peih-Gee Law wanted to target him due to his indecisiveness. In the end, Peih-Gee succeeded and Chicken was the first person voted out in a 5-2-1 vote. After his elimination, Chicken yelled "Damn!" (often subtitled as "Dayum!"), surprising and amusing many of his tribemates.
