"Everybody with an immunity idol is considered dangerous."
– Andria "Dreamz" Herd, Survivor: Fiji

Well, Jeff Probst – this is what happens when you cast a quitter. He quits again.

Wednesday on Survivor: Blood vs. Water, Colton Cumbie decided seven days in the game was too much for his delicate constitution. Things weren't going perfectly according to plan, so he had a hissy and walked out. Na Onka and Purple Kelly in Nicaragua lasted 28 days. Osten on Pearl Islands lasted 19. Colton isn't just a quitter – he's the quittiest quitter.

"You don't have to trust someone to have an alliance with them. You just have to have the same interests. You could hate someone's guts, but if you could help them get farther and they could help you go farther, hey, we've got an alliance."
– Burton Roberts, Survivor: Pearl Islands

I told you Blood vs. Water would deliver! One episode in, and we've already seen two families destroyed. Will Candice ever forgive her husband John for not taking her place on Redemption Island? Will Marissa ever come to terms with being voted off first because of Uncle Gervase's gloating? And will this season leave in its trail a waste of human wreckage and misery?

"My alliance was really my family at home. There was never a day I wasn't loyal to my family."
– Dawn Meehan, Survivor: Caramoan

"I'm not here to make friends!" is such a reality TV cliché, it's spawned its own Youtube clip reel. But what happens if your friends are on the show with you?

Survivor: Blood vs. Water premieres Wednesday, matching returning players against family members and loved ones. If the jaded chatter on Twitter and Facebook is any indication, people aren't too psyched about the twist. I'm holding out hope.

Bringing family members into the game could expose raw emotions and precipitate subtle calculations. What do you do when your loved one is voted off? Suck it up – or hulk out?
