Survivor Caramoan : OAD 3-13-2013

Good Riddance. He and his uncle are nothing alike. Brandon never should have been brought back. What an Ass.

I hope Philip wins now.

Totally agree about Brandon. I would wager uncle Russell is even more disgusted with him now than after his first season. That was pathetic.

I don't hope Phillip wins, but there's about zero point zero percent chance of that so no biggie.

I loved the reaction from the Fans side as it all unfolded.

Brandon proved a point (one that we all knew before this game) he's a psycho... should have never brought him back.

Yeah, I don't know that I really want Philip to win, other than the fact that Brandon would be pissed about it and that would make me happy.

The reunion show will be fun.

Well that was... umm... interesting... That is a first on many levels right? I know challenges have been thrown, but have they been handed over? Have we had a TC not at TC?

The favorites still have a 2 person lead, but it will be interesting to see if there is a momentum shift because of this.

Brandon was one of the strongest competitors in these challenges though.

That was great fun to watch!!!

I loved how Jeff got Brandon away from his tribe and Philip. Massaging his shoulders and calming him down. Or trying. I wonder what Jeff was thinking!

And the Fans...who was it that said "can you hold it up like do when you win" or something like that. Jeff said he would but I don't think he did.

So was Brandon actually voted out by his tribe, or pulled out by the show?

Brandon is crazypants, but I'm glad he called out Phillip. He (Phillip) annoys me way more than Brandon did.

Philip missed such a great opportunity to twist the knife. All he had to say was "I guess some people just can't handle the stress" and nothing more. That would have made Brandon completely melt down while letting everyone else bask in the glow.

Anwyay - Producers got their reality. Great pick by them.

Remember the other Hantz brother who got kicked off Big Brother?

I think the casting people had to know they were setting up a potentially dangerous situation when they put Brandon on the show.

I'm liking Philip more and more. I felt sad for him when Brandon told him everyone hated their nicknames. Philip responded that everyone thought it was just fun and I think that is all the stealth r us thing is for Philip. He isn't serious, he isn't completely crazy, he is just having a little fun.

And I could have smacked Brandon's childish face when he mumbled to mock Philip's speech pattern.

So do they get their rice and beans replaced by production? I think they should have taken some precautions when Brandon had already threatened to pee in them.

Well, that was quite a train-wreck. I agree with everyone else that Brandon is nutballs. There is nothing for him to be proud of. His silly rationale about controlling his own destiny is like a pathetic suicide note and if he cared about Andrea and Dawn so much, he wouldn't have dumped out their rice and beans.

But I hope Phillip follows Brandon and Shamar soon, I've had enough of crazy people in Survivor for a while.

I'm really curious how it actually all went down at the immunity challenge. Did it unfold as we saw it, with Jeff making the decision to hold Tribal right then and there or was a long producer meeting cut out? Maybe they knew what to expect and had already decided to hold Tribal right away.

In any case, it sucks to be the designer or builder of that particular challenge.

At the reward challenge I noticed that Brenda was limping quite noticably. And then at the (aborted) immunity challenge she had a buff on her knee (presumably covering a knee brace). I don't remember any indication that she'd been injured. That would suck if she is, 'cause then she's a weak link and could get cut. And I wouldn't like that.

Anyone else catch the production screw-up with the names/jobs on-screen display at the orange tribe when they were all scrambling for the HII?


Regarding the previews...
Spoiler:
I sure hope, between a Corrine and Phillip confrontation, that Corrine comes out on top. I'd be happy to see Phillip gone and even though I don't care for her personality, I love her smile.

I'm not a Brandon fan at all, but I hope Phillip is the next to go - and I wouldn't be heartbroken if it was even a medical evacuation, either.

It seemed totally lost on Phillip, the "challenge hero", that the other tribe ganged up on Brandon and that Phillip lasted as long as he did as a result. What a putz.

And if his 'Stealth R Us' really is just a light-hearted gimmick, it sure doesn't seem to play that way to me.

Brandon is going to prove to be a BIG game changer (and not in a good way) if they are just stuck with the rice & beans they can salvage - which, as unfortunate as that is, should be the case; unless they can win some more in a reward challenge (one of those "you have a choice between this custom-built Menards-sponsored Port-a-potty or a bag of beans and a bag of rice" deals).

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.
