And then there were six. Harvard law student Nick Brown, 23, sealed his fate on Thursday's edition of "Survivor: The Australian Outback" when he rested while the other Barramundi struggled to catch fish after the tribe ran out of its main rice staple. "He's sleeping all day, conserving his energy so he can keep winning immunity challenges," complained Elisabeth Filarski. Result: Bye, bye Brown. "You said you were tired of playing the game and that you wanted to leave," Tina Wesson told him, "so here's your ticket, baby." As for running out of rice, the group turned to grasshoppers -- to lure some fish. So bad was the food situation that show host Jeff Probst brought in more rice -- but took their tarpaulins in return. Those who remain, besides Elisabeth and Tina, are Amber, Colby, Keith and Rodger. Friday morning on CBS's "The Early Show," Brown said, "I'm good. I'm glad to be back. I expected it was coming."
