    The way Brandon was acting, he had to go and go now!!

    Threatening to pee on the rice and beans was bad enough, but he said he thought about burning down the shelter! Who could sleep after hearing that?

    He also had access to a pretty scary looking knife. After the stuff he said I would not feel safe around him.

    It's also interesting about the forfeit. In a previous season a tribe wanted to do the same thing and Jeff said that every member of the tribe had to agree to the forfeit. They didn't mention that here. I think that means either Brandon agreed and they didn't show it, or the Producers didn't make him agree so they could let the tribe vote him out.

    Wasn't that after they won the challenge and decided they wanted to go to tribal anyways? It wouldn't be hard for them to throw the challenge if not allowed to forfiet.

    And if Phillip was his problem, why screw his "friends"?

    Whoever gave Brandon his psychological examination and cleared him to be on the show should turn in their certfication and find another line of work. There is no way they should have let someone in his obvious mental state on this show. It was clearly irresponsible of the producers to put him and the rest of his tribe mates in that position. He never should have been on the show.

    Shemar and Brandon have clear psychological problems, Brandon much more so than Shemar.

    But Philip is just a narcissistic kook. He doesn't deserve to be in the same sentence as the other two.

    I agree with a lot of this, especially the direction of how this show is going. And I'm specifically talking about bringing back old contestants. I think it ws a fun novelty once. The first All-Stars was a lot of fun. But now, they do it so often that it's just not interesting any more. I'd rather they bring in new contestants and maybe, every 4th season some form of All-Stars. The fall season wasn't bad because the number of bring backs was small, and those they brought back were actually interesting. This time? It looked like they were trying to find contestants that were not necessarily good players, but disturbing personalities. I understand it brings ratings to some extent, but some contestants people just don't want to see again. I am not sure there were that many fans who wanted to see Philip or Brandon again. And there were a couple of them they brought back that frankly I don't remember.

    If Probst is bored, like Andy Denhart suggests, then perhaps it's time to bring in a new host. I can actually think of a couple of former Survivors who might be good at it. Penner is one that comes to mind immediately. It also does seem that Jeff has been given a lot of power. I know I said I thought he handled this situation well, but in light of what Andy said in his blog, perhaps not, if this was all staged for TV's benefit. There's a lot about Survivor that I no longer like. It's become too predictable because of the editing. They have tried TOO many gimmicks. In fact, I'd love where they have a season with all new contestants and call it "Classic" Survivor, where they play with the original rules. No hidden idols, a reward and immunity challenge every week. And some good personalities rather than combustible ones.

    And, oh yeah, a cold weather version ;)

    Colby Donaldson would be the perfect replacement for Jeff.

    He was another I thought about. Maybe even the Facts of Life actress who did it last season. I used to really like Jeff, but I am getting the feeling that he thinks he's bigger than the show now. And they tend to bring back his buddies too.

    And he would have been gone even if they they did not forfeit. I say they should have played and possibly won immunity, gotten rid of another fan, and let the producers do what they had to do with Brandon. He wouldn't have been let back at camp.

    I know it will never happen. I'm realistic. But I personally am bored with the tropical island version that we get over and over again. I get that the producers feel that without a warm weather locale people won't tune in because they won't be getting bare chested muscular guys and girls in bikinis. So why not, for the season filmed in the summer, a mountain location? Surely it will be warm enough during the day for "skin", and there have to be enough people out there that regularly camp out during the summer months for weeks at a time that living outside during a chilly night shouldn't be a big problem. Heck, I camped out for 6 weeks as a kid two summers in a row in tents with no heat. And I'm a city kid. I can't see their being any shortage of contestants for that. I'm not talking about camping out in Alaska in January!!

    He also might have done something "crazy" during the challenge.

    I've been around a cancer like him and you would do ANYTHING just to have them gone....Like the one lady said (carol?) "This has taken me out of the game".

    I bet they give them the opportunity to "win" new food. Or trade for it like they did one other season when food grew short.

    Is the reason why they don't do a cold weather version for safety reasons, or T&A reasons?

    Explain. I'm not sure it's any safer being in torrential wind swept rain than in a cool night in say Rocky Mountain National park in July.
