Survivor Caramoan – Fans V Favourites – Are We Seeing The Unravelling Of Brandon Hantz?
It has been a strong start to the twenty sixth series of Survivor, but one of the downsides is the favourites tribe seem to be getting far more air time than the fans tribe.
This is probably to be expected as seeing old favourites is a good way of hooking people in to watch.
One person who does not appear to have changed much since his last time on the show is Brandon Hantz who still has a hard time containing his emotions. It is like he is unravelling onscreen.
After he returned from tribal council he unleashed on Dawn about siding with the Andrea alliance. He told her she was going to lose. What he may not realise is he is in the one without the numbers now. It was ferocity of the attack was uncalled for and had her in tears. It is unclear whether he said the same things to Cochran who had been in the same alliance.
After this Brandon said he was going to go Russell Hantz style that is start tearing things up. He said he was feeling his blood running through his veins.
Then fast forward to the next day he was contrite.Cochran likened him to a psychopath however Special Agent Phillip thought he was a narcissist, which is a bit pot calling kettle black.
Phillip said he was CEO or more like his ego was CEO of Stealth Are Us which was the name of his alliances and he gave them all nick names. Malcolm was the enforcer, Andrea was the eliminator. They all appeared to humour him.
However Brandon was not in good humour when Phillip told him he was only middle management so could only be told certain things. Brandon headed back to the others on the tribe saying how pissed off he was and then he sulked. Next week he apparently unleashes again talking about urinating in the food and water. Classy!
Favourites easily won the immunity/reward challenge with a far better strategy of sharing the diving under water. Afterwards it was revealed the fans had wasted time discussing how to appoint roles as there was no leaders and that is why it was so disorganised.
In the fans tribe the hottie four alliance was still feeling confident prior to tribal with Reynolds thinking an attack on Shemar might swing more votes against him. He told him his behaviour is unacceptable. It doesn’t matter how annoying he is if he is in the alliance with the numbers he is safe. Apparently he is lazy and does nothing around camp. Sherri had decided quickly that she wanted a solid alliance with Shemar. Probably knowing if it comes down to a jury vote in the end she will win. This is probably why Special Agent Phil will go far in the game this series and Brandon.
Reynold does not seem the brightest tool in the shed, well he did find the immunity idol quickly, but then did not conceal it properly and played it at tribal that night. In the end Allie was eliminated from the cool kid alliance, the reason given was she was the only ones out of the four who had been strategising.
