The extreme conditions on the island are taking their toll on the 11 remaining women and they are now on the brink of starvation. They are living on an extremely low calorie diet, surviving on snails and limpets and scraps of scavenged yucca and coconut. With the need to find a protein-rich meal now critical, Lauren, Beth and Belinda venture into the island's jungle interior to set animal traps. Lauren realises that if they are going to survive they will need to be more determined. And her sights are set on a pig. Their traps are a success and it could mean salvation for the women - if they can kill it. (S.2,Ep.4)

The women are starving as they enter their sixth and final week on the island. Having plundered all the resources in the vicinity of their beach, the group are now looking to the ocean to sustain them. The women are pinning all their hopes on their fishing net catching a major haul but so far it's eluded them. Chaos has begun to rein in camp, and the group are fractured. Having relied solely on communal decision-making, the lack of unity leaves the larder bare and the camp falling apart. Can the women unite at the final stage of their island experience, or will they depart the island divided? (S.2,Ep.6)
