Not ready for prime time

Do these people really deserve to be "survivors"?

Even as the search for survivors continues in tornado-ravaged Joplin, a number of faith-based organizations were mobilizing to provide relief and recovery services.


As of Wednesday, the death toll in Joplin stood at 125 as search parties continued to comb through piles of debris that mark much of the southwest Missouri city of 50,000.

Waiting around for "relief and recovery services"? Is that the way they think the game should be played? Shouldn't they be forming alliances and plotting doublecrosses and looking for the hidden idol and getting ready for the immunity challenge? They're never going to have a ratings hit in Joplin if they don't get with it.
