'Survivor: Nicaragua' -- Fire and Rain (VIDEO)

'Survivor: Nicaragua' -- Fire and RainOn 'Survivor: Nicaragua,' things were burning up. We don't mean this as a metaphor. Yes, the players are always "burning" with ambition. But that's not what happened tonight. On the new episode (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS), the flames were a lot more literal.

Libertad tribe broke into two teams for the latest challenge -- the prize being a pizza feast and a trip to a volcano. But they wouldn't have to visit a volcano to see ashes and flames. Blue team won, and Yellow team lost. While the Blues went off to eat pizza, the Yellow team returned to the campsite -- where they discovered a horrifying surprise.

After a torrential downpour had threatened to put out the campfire, the tribe (under Brenda's leadership) made an interesting decision. They put their wooden chests around the campfire to shield it from the heavy rain. This was a good idea -- except for one minor detail. Wooden chests are made of ... wood.

While the teams were at the challenge, the protective chests also caught fire. The flames spread, and most of the camp was reduced to a pile of ashes. Including the chest that contained the tribe's food. Not good. Brenda was the leader, so she caught the "heat" (excuse the pun) for the flaming disaster. And Brenda already had a target on her back, because most of the players thought she had grown too powerful.

At Tribal Council, Brenda was put up for elimination, and was kicked off by a vote of 8 to 2. Her torch was extinguished -- the second fire of the day to be put out. That's the end of Brenda. She saw fire and she saw rain. She saw a lonely Tribal council where she could not find a friend. But we always thought that we'd see her again. ... But now we won't.

When they were putting the chests around the fire, all I could think was, "These people are idiots!" Why not just start another fire when this one goes out? The constant bickering and fighting does become monotonous, but how else would we know how to choose sides? I would rather see more focus on the challenges and their will to "survive".

Just another episode of a reality show. Why should we really care? Just another piece of TV that's not really worth watching. Maybe we'll see these shows die off like the dinosaurs and see a return to quality TV programming.

Where do they get these stupid people? It took YEARS before someone figured out how to get a fire going the first day even though EVERY season, SOMEONE was wearing glasses!!! Shelter building? Please. I've seen five year old do better! But I think the biggest mistake Survivor has done is make the show 40 minutes of whining and backstabbing and only 5 minutes dedicated to challenges and real effort on 'surviving'.

Who gives a damn? If the first "Survivor" series never really caught on, just think, NO "Reallity" TV, if you can call it that. I think everything is set up from the start.
