Survivor South Pacific – Is Brandon Hantz A Complete Nutjob?

Brandon Hantz, who is Russell Hantz nephew is getting the most air time on Survivor South Pacific, not because he is strategising but because he is cracking up.

Did the the former troubled teen who is now married with two kids, have a psych test before he went on? Or an IQ test? He is not that bright either.

Survivor is notorious for cracking people emotionally but normally they recover. Brandon Hantz just appears to be still unravelling.

In episode two he was dead set against Mikayla because he had the hots for her, but he made it out it was her fault. He said she was “using her seductive ways and young-girl attitude” and his rationale for wanting Mikayla punted was because  “I’m faithful to my wife.”

Everytime is does a dumb or evil thing he begs forgiveness and says he tries to be a good christian however then goes off and says and does something stupid or untrustworthy again.

As Kellulz tweeted:

Coach appears to like him. He even gave him a Survivor masterclass saying after he tried to tell Coach their alliance was cracking up – “This game is gonna get so much crazier than this. And if you believe somebody — tell me if somebody’s sneaking up on me — if you believe somebody that is on death row like Stacey knows she is over somebody that is in our core alliance then you might as well throw in the towel right now.”

However Brandon deludes himself and tells Coach “he is good judge of character”!

At Tribal Council under the Jeff Probst who was using his Nuremberg Trial inquisitioning technique made Brandon tear up talking about how he wanted to stand by his uncle, but felt it was difficult to do. “The proof’s in the pudding. You can’t help somebody who’s done that to himself,” he said. “But what do you do?”. He also said he wanted to show a different side to the Hantz’s then what his uncle had and redeem the family name. He isn’t doing a great job so far.

It will be interesting to see how long he stays in the game. I also wonder when he talks about his troubled teens – what exactly did he do? Googled but came up with nothing.

Tonight Stacey was voted off by her tribe, and didn’t want to be hugged. Not sure why Coach thought she would want to be. Also Christine on Redemption Island beat Papa Bear so he is the second one off the island.

Absolutely, totally batshit crazy. I’d be hightailing it out of there at the sped of light if I had to face the prospect of sleeping anywhere within knife’s reach of that whack job. Just sayin’.

I was a bit stunned last night when Jeff asked a guy with a mustache what he thought about something. Considering I had never even sighted him before. Very suss that they wanted to hug someone they had just knifed in the back (Stacey). I don’t blame her for refusing… Love your comments Chunks!

He’s so creepy, look at those beady axemurderer eyes.
Anyway, re his ‘troubled’ past, apparently, married a 16 year old, spawned 2 kids (think she’s still only 18/19), and used to beat her – so the rumours all over the net say. And he thinks he’s smart and his last name isn’t even Hanz.

Semha’s interview, very interesting ….. wonder how she got presented with the opportunity to go on Survivor?
I am still disappointed that they are bringing back prior contestants and will be VERY annoyed if one of them wins again – like Boston Rob – have pegged Dawn as a one to watch – but she doesnt seem to be in a strong alliance so could get the boot before merge.
Brandon will no doubt be kept around as the loose cannon – no way anyone gonna give him a million bucks!
And yes, who was that guy at tribal with the mo – never even seen him before??
Roll on next Tues ……………….

I have to say Brandon needs serious to help in normal thinking not everyone was agaist him until he did show his hand that what would do to people who vote himout! Someone please help him or put him away until he is no harm to others. If I was on that show I feel the boy needs help but one minute he is thinking wonderful something piss him off and explosion of confussion and fear what he could do himself or others just to make a sick name for himself by hurting others

Brandon lost it because Major Dickhead and he were playing each other and he found out he’d been duped.
Yes plastic knives and forks only and no heavy, blunt objects when Brandon is around.
Jeff used a hypnotoc massage to prevent murder on the set.
