    I guess what they showed in the preview last week wasn't the usual attempt to mislead us. I guess they need to break the pattern every now and then. ;)

    I wonder if the fans might have won with Shamu holding a rope in the reward challenge. Seems like a challenge made just for him. Guess we'll never know. I question why the Fans put those two guys on the ropes instead of the "stronger guys".

    Great episode. Brandon was a loose cannon from day one.

    I have no problem with Phillip and how he plays his game. There have been worse players. It was interesting to see who in that tribe was upset with the situation and who seemed to be almost relieved.

    There was a better strategy than forfeiting the challenge. They should have gone ahead and legitimately played and tried their best to win. If they lose, fine, they vote out crazy guy. If they won, even better, the fans have to lose one more player and then later they can surely, easily, provoke Brandon into disqualifying himself by doing something insane.

    while brilliant on paper...nobody wants a psycho back at camp that could do anything at anytime.

    If they had not forfeited I feel sure production would have pulled Brandon from the game. If they had insisted on playing they would have had the chance to also eliminate another fan.
    No way would they have let Brandon go back to camp.

    I'm guessing (hoping) the food Brandon destroyed was replaced. This was not typical behavior and the tribe was, I think, at risk of some potential violence from this maniac.

    I think the challenge that was aborted will return next week. They'll simply drop one of the future challenges and use this one since it's already set up.

    While I still think Philip is off is rockers on some level, I did see something from him when talking alone with Brandon that I'd never seen from him before. He seemed to be a bit normal :eek:

    I've always wondered if his Stealth R Us is just a gimmick he uses on the show and I'm a bit more convinced of that now. While Philip is disliked on some level, he's pretty much the leader of the group regardless of his method.

    This is from an interview EW did with Brandon before filming started. He is asked about Russell. Someone please explain the very last sentence to me. :eek:

    http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/01/23/survivor-caramoan-brandon-hantz-ussell/

    EW: Well, let’s talk about a tough Hantz man. Russell was pretty harsh about your previous performance, both during the season and at the live reunion. What’s your relationship like now?
    BRANDON: Uhhhh…it actually was wonderful, until I got back together with my wife.

    EW: Why is that?
    BRANDON: Because when you’re lonely and sad, you want to be lonely and sad with someone else. And I’m being straight-up. I want him to see this. I want him to read this. Maybe it will hit him in his head. When something good happens for somebody and nothing good has happened for you, you get a little bit bitter. And I feel like that’s what it is right now. I feel like he’s very sad and hurt and it kinda sucks because we had a really good time together when I wasn’t with my wife, and I wanted that kind of relationship, even with my wife. So it shows that it’s an ulterior motive from him to obviously have me as a friend, as a companion. I’m just there to help his pain go away, which I didn’t do anything with him sexually so I don’t see how that is a problem.

    I can't follow much of that paragraph, but that last sentence is bizarre. Why go there??

    I'm sure the producers knew that casting Brandon could result in this very thing. And I'm sure they knew that Philip could be just as entertaining in a weird way as well. They got what they wanted and they sure advertised this ahead of time to get ratings. Anyway, I'm glad he's gone. I thought Jeff was really terrific trying to get everything under control. Kudos.

    I don't mind Philip nearly as much as the first time around. Either he's toned it down (or the producers have not focused on him as much...just as likely).

    Reynold is becoming a favorite of mine and I'm rooting for him to win.

    I'm not a psychologist but I'm pretty sure this boy has some kind of problem. Just reading that reinforces that his mental processes are not normal.

    We saw that on occasion when he was first played also.
