Jungle hasn't taken the fight out of Patti Blagojevich

Patti Blagojevich has displayed a warrior spirit over the past three weeks in the Costa Rican jungle on TV's ''I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!''

And Monday night, she displayed a bit more -- showing castmates the spot on her tushie where a tick bit her.

"It picked the best-looking booty on the whole place to bite," ex-Chicago Bull John Salley said.

That pair has certainly bonded.

"Come back with your shield or on it," Patti said she told him as he prepared to go into an elimination challenge.

Her use of a line Spartan women spoke to their fellas before sending them into battle -- come home victorious or die a noble death -- was among several references to fighting it out that Patti made, staying on message in an effort to increase support for herself and hubby, Rod Blagojevich.

When actor Stephen Baldwin quit the competition over the weekend, she said, "How do you let the people that voted for you down?"

"I couldn't let my kids see me quit something like this, especially so close to the end."

Tonight, two contestants will be eliminated.
