Jenna leaves Survivor All-Stars.

Jenna leaves Survivor All-Stars.
Instead of competing in the immunity challenge, the Survivor All-Stars watched Jenna head for a boat. Although she’d received no new information about her ailing mother’s condition, she left anyway, saying she’d “made a bad judgment call” by participating in the game. Jenna’s mother died eight days after she returned. Jeff Probst didn’t get all bitchy with her like he did when Osten quit, but did ask the other survivors what they thought of Jenna’s decision. Besides currently appearing in a public service announcement about dissection and on the Heidi and Jenna Official 2004 Calendar, Jenna will be online chatting live today at 2:30 p.m. ET.
+ also: Survivor moves to Wednesday on March 17 and 24 because of basketball.
