I kept going back and forth inside my head that this is fake, all the Hantzs cant be that off balance, to wow Brandon is coming totally unhinged.


I think the girls crying was a release. Brandon on his upswings was probably a nice guy. They probably had been walking on eggshells for awhile now.


I think Phillip does all the Stealth R Us stuff to be what he thinks is amusing. He so much as admitted that to Brandon when they were talking.

When Jeff was holding onto Brandon so tightly I definitely went back to thinking real.

Plus I think anyone who is that destructive around camp, like tossing rice and threatening physical harm needs to go.

Agree, but I do think Brandon is unstable. He probably is a nice guy most of the time, but watch out when he goes off the deep end.

And, if I am remembering right, he threw the rice out secretly last time. At least this time they knew who did it.

The way Jeff was holding onto him did look like he was worried about Brandon escaping his grip. His hands were really dug in.

I wouldn't want to accidentally cut Brandon off in traffic.

Jeff handled all of that very well. The girls crying? Get over yourselves.
Agreed. The girls crying was pathetic. It was so pathetic that I almost want to say it was scripted.

Everything Brandon said about Phillip was absolutely true..

What a wackadoodle! Brandon really has been coming unhinged for a while now. I think the crying of the girls was just stress release. And I'm sure they did like him when he was nice, but as with anyone who is nice on "good" days and horrible on "bad" days. You shouldn't have to be worried about someone going off the deep end. He needs to go to anger management classes.

I'm not sure he needs anger management. He didn't hit anyone ... Actually I thought Erik should have been kicked off the show for making physical contact with Brandon.

I see that there is one major difference cropping up between the fans and the favorites.

The favorites have been around the camera long enough to know how to create drama for ratings, which is what the producers lap up.

Brandon acting like a psycho, Philip talking directly to the camera, the girls crying . . . part of me thinks they're doing it because they know THAT's what gets the big attention from the producers.

You hang around the camera enough and you realize that nobody wants REAL anymore in reality TV... they want over-the-top. And if you want to be invited back or given attention to launch your business/TV career/line of soft drinks after the show, unfortunately, this is the way you need to act.

I really hope Phillip is the next to go... He really is quite possibly the most annoying person ever on Survivor.... and I cant stand listening to his craziness.

Cochran is being very quiet this season...

From Jeff Probst...

We never let anybody on the show who can’t pass the psych test. Brandon passed. He was also great in our interviews before the show began. We were actually very excited because he had a new approach to the game. He said he wasn’t going to be as emotionally reactive and felt that after playing once he was better prepared for the 39 day adventure. We felt Brandon had the potential for a true underdog story of a young man who was overwhelmed the first time he played and was seeking redemption.

Because something like this had never happened before there was no plan in place. I was assessing moment to moment, making decisions based on what was playing out in front of me. I can share with you that I was whispering instructions into my microphone (which is fed to our audio department) for our safety and security guys to be ready to assist if necessary. I was also asking for our show psychologist to be put on a boat and brought over immediately so she could counsel Brandon after the incident was over.

Really about Eric

I think Phillip is much more self aware than we all realize. He clearly stated to Brandon in the woods the whole stealth r us thing was just a game for fun. I trully believe he is playing a "character" and using it as part of his strategy. He is probably a more eccentric person in real life...but I think he is 100% aware of how he comes across in the game.

Brandon is truly unstable which makes it so difficult to be around someone with mental health issues like his. Because he truly seems like a nice, repentive, great guy to be around some of the time, but he just can't process conflict and emotion the same way normal people can. You see it all the time with domestic violence situations and wonder why a person will stay with an abusive husband...its a vicious cycle.

I think that is why the girls were so emotional. Because we only see a small slice of camp life. They were subjected to it 24 hours a day. And living with someone like Brandon puts everyone else in an emotional wringer with his extreme highs and horrible lows. I also think that Phillip really took a lot of verbal abusedirected right at him and after a while, it is hard not to try and defend yourself (especially in front of the other tribe). You could see them all trying really hard to just hold it all back.

DS10 asked why Phillp walked away when Brandon was yelling at him at camp. I explained to him that sometimes when someone is that angry that the best thing the other person can do, even if they want to argue back, is to walk away so that things do not esculate further.

I actually give Phillip some credit for walking away during Brandon's tirade at camp

While watching the episode, DH looks at me and says "this is what happens when crazy meets crazy".

Philip is so annoying and everything Brandon said was true. The girls crying bugged me, it was pathetic. The looks on the fan's faces were hysterical, especially Randell.

I hope Brandon is able to find peace in his life and Philip gets voted off soon.

I suspect that Brandon just can't handle the reality of being out there on the island. He probably went into the game with good intentions but once he is there he cracks under the pressure and physical demands of the game.
