Strangely enough, I'm more excited to see tonight's episode than any other in a long time. The fireworks should be entertaining.

Survivor's had a ton of nutters through the years and I've disliked most of them. For some reason not Brandon. I always feel sorry for the guy.

Yeah I feel sorry for Brandon. He clearly shouldn't have been cast the first time. So irresponsible on their part for bringing him back.

It's also clear Phillip isn't far behind. What a fucking clown.

At least Brandon got a hell of a massage before he left!

Best tribal ever!! All jokes aside, Brandon seems to have some real mental issues. I would not be surprised if he was diagnosed as bipolar either that or explosive temper disorder. I bet during the finale he'll apologize for his behavior and burst into tears.

I would take Phillip to the end who would ever vote for him to win the million? I agree with auto, he's comedy gold!

I'm glad Brandon's gone because he was clearly unstable (both this time and his last time), but I agree with some of his comments about Phillip acting superior to everyone and thinking he's calling all the shots. I hope Phillip is next to go. I could have done without Jeff's vigorous massage and "I love you" comment.

Good grief, what a nightmare. I started watching the episode thinking the Survivor folks must love that everyone is tuning in to see this drama. By the end, I think they have to know that it was a huge mistake bringing Brandon back and perhaps they regret doing so.

I agree. That may have been more uncomfortable to see than Brandon's outburst.

I was really impressed with Probst. I can't imagine any other game show host handling that with such precision and still keeping it in the spirit of the game. Great stuff.

Except everyone else realizes they want to face a Phillip in the end and you finish nowhere near FTC. It's a losing strategy to drag along players like that look what happened to the older lady who tried to do that Shemar or all the people who tried to drag Sugar to the end in her season and ended up on the jury.

Boston Rob being the exception of a players to win dragging a goat means probably don't try that until you are a 4th timer playing against noobs

Exactly. Probst again shows why he's the best in the business. He really defused a volatile situation, albeit with a heavy dose of homoeroticism.

I feel sorry for Brandon and think Jeff and the other Producers should be ashamed they exploited him for ratings. He was a danger to himself and others.

If Brandon is asking Philip things like where do I stand how else could that be construed besides Philip being in charge.

It's hard to applaud how the situation was dealt with when it was Probst and the producers who pretty much set it up for the sake of ratings.

They cast a potentially violent, seemingly bipolar nutjob with an inferiority complex on a tribe with another nutjob with delusions of grandeur.... could they not see this coming based on past seasons? Hell I wonder if they had contingencies in place going into this season in case this actually happened.

That's exactly what I said when he was initially crying about leaving his kids. His kids are probably happy he's gone.

Why cast Brenda when you have no intention of featuring her? Fuck this show.

I agree he's a psycho who never should have returned.

Andrea, on the other hand, is smokin' in that bikini top.
