I am in total shock. What. Just. Happened?!
I just have ONE word to sum up this week’s episode. MELTDOWN!!! (I also have a certain three-word acronym which is not appropriate to share here but I’m sure you can guess what it is...)
I have watched every episode and season of Survivor. There have been altercations of every kind from petty catfights to full on blowouts. But never anything close to this.
Among many things that any fan or seasoned player knows are Survivor 101 “rules” there are two things you NEVER do on Survivor. One, give up immunity. Two, throw out your food supply at camp.
Brandon, what were you thinking?! I seriously thought things might get violent.
I’ve never been too big a fan of Brandon but I definitely didn’t feel as strongly about him and his gameplay as I do about Phillip. I have never been a Phillip fan; he’s a character for sure but I do think he’s a few stops away from crazy town.
Now I think Brandon might just be in the neighbouring town. That look in his eyes was pretty scary.
I’m very interested to see what’s going to happen at the reunion show. Will he regret what he did? Will he be able to let bygones be bygones with Phillip (as what usually happens at the reunion shows between players who fought during the game) or will there be round two?
What will Uncle Russell Hantz think? I would also really like to hear Jeff Probst’s thoughts; his perspective on the situation and what he was thinking at the time.
The favourites were on such a high and winning streak too so I can’t wait to see how they bounce back from this rather traumatic experience – for their sake I hope they do.
