I don't remember that. When and what?

When Brandon was dumping the 2nd bag, Erik went and basically bear hugged Brandon. Although I don't condone what Brandon was doing, you can't make physical contact with other players.

Thanks, totally missed that. I guess it just seemed like such a normal thing to do. Normalcy does not stick out this season!

Phillip crossed the line simply by responding. ZIP IT. Responding was egging Brandon on.

I think Philip is completely aware of what he is doing and is playing a character, and I think Brandon is legitimately unbalanced, but I think Philip deserved the call-out from Brandon in front of the fans. That was hilarious.

And I am so sick of Andrea this season. Why was she crying? She stirred that pot by telling Brandon what Philip said.

If that was a bear hug, what do you call those late-night cuddle sessions that go on in the shelters?

My thoughts on this whole thing is that Brandon has been itching to do something "dramatic" since the game started. In almost every show there has been a confessional with him talking about how he wants to burn the camp down, destroy the food, etc. (I don't remember the exact phrases, but you get the point). I think that the argument with Phillip was just his excuse to go nuts on the camp.

We all know that Philip is annoying. Everyone in camp knows Phillip is annoying but the go along with him and his silly "Stealth R Us" business. He's doing well in challenges and happy around camp. Why is that the Brandon is the only one who takes him so seriously.

Really, the blow up after the reward challenge seemed silly. Not sure why Brandon got so mad in the first place because he thought that Phillip was bragging. Who cares, that is what he does.

Another thing I don't get is why on earth did Andrea tell Brandon what Phillip was thinking about throwing the challenge. That was just stupid on her part. What did you think was going to happen? Then she stands around and cries. Really, him losing it and throwing out the food was really her fault. If she had kept her mouth shut they could have got to the challenge and maybe not had the blow up.

In think Phillip was smart at that moment to walk away from Brandon. Better to remove yourself and hope the situation calms down some rather than escalate it.

I don't think Erik did anything wrong he tried to stop Brandon. I know you aren't supposed to get physical (except in challanges I guess when they practically kill each other), but in this case I seem him as defending himself and his tribemates. Brandon was on a rampage, destroying food. What next? Should they have just stood there while he grabbed a machete? No, Erik did what a reasonable person would try and do. He tried to restrain him, he didn't fight him.

I wish that Phillip would have kept his cool at the immunity challange/tribal council. But we don't know how long that had been going on and he probably had reached his limit as well.

In the end, Brandon was totally unhinged and I'm glad that he's gone.

Those are wanted. I don't think Brandon wanted Erik jumping on his back. That was not a welcomed advance!

I was thinking what if Brandon would have had the idol, then Philip would have went home. I mean i knew he didn't, but that would have been really crazy. I think that Brandon is completely right about Philip, and I think he got so mad because he doesn't have anyone saying he was right about Philip, so he just thinks he is annoying. maybe if some members would have said(even secretly) that they think he is a joke, he might have been ok. I mean, I would rather have Brandon than Philip(IN MY OPINION). LOL i kno crazier people than Brandon anyway. haha

Seriously, what was Eric to do? Someone had to stop Brandon from destroying the camp and supplies. He didn't do anything that warranted him being tossed.

I appreciated the insight from Jeff, but I can't believe that Brandon passed a psych exam.

Have you ever watched the physical challenges? The bear hug was nothing.

We're the beans and rice staples provided by the show? They have to replace them right?
