"It’s Gonna Be Chaos" -- Alicia Rose, Sabrina Thomson, Kat Edorsson, Chelsea Meissner, Kim Spradlin, Christina Cha, and Greg Smith, of the Tikiano tribe just before the Sprint reward challenge, "Connecting With Your Loved One" during the twelfth episode of, SURVIVOR: ONE WORLD, Wednesday, May 2 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Wednesday on TV: "Survivor" contestants may be the dumbest bunch ever

Survivor: One World (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) may go down in "Survivor" lore as the season with the most dumb people.

And that's not even counting Kat Edorsson, who thought she was going to catch appendicitis and was looking for a way to protect herself.

Week after week, contestants have a chance to change the game up and extend their stay. Week after week, they don't do it.

The guys voted against other guys - starting with Utahn Jonas Otsuji - completely oblivious to the fact they were digging a hole they could never climb out of. Now there are women doing exactly the same thing.

It's aggravating beyond belief.

Let's put it this way - there seems to be no chance that anyone from the remaining cast will be hosting a series on PBS, the way "Survivor: Cook Islands" winner Yul Kwon is. (You can catch him at 9 p.m. on Ch. 7 hosting "America Revealed.")

According to CBS, in this week's episode "walls come down when the Tikiano tribe shares an emotional moment with their loved ones, and one castaway's decision creates animosity amongst wounded tribe members."

It's just gotten very unpleasant.
