NEW YORK (AP) — For one night, "Survivor" became "quitter."
Two contestants quit the CBS game in an episode aired on Wednesday. That's a first for the show, which has had only four others leave of their own choice in a history that goes back a decade.
NaOnka Mixon, a 27-year-old gym teacher from Los Angeles, said relentless rain at the show's Nicaragua setting made her joints ache. Mixon hasn't been a fan favorite, since cameras once caught her stealing food from her fellow players.
The other quitter was 20-year-old Kelly Shinn, a nursing student from Mesa, Ariz. Shinn said: "I just feel like I'm breaking down."
They didn't get much sympathy.
Snuffing out Shinn's torch, host Jeff Probst said "Get out."
