Re: Survivor Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites (Premieres Wednesday February 13th at 8PM ET on CBS)

Does Brandon's performance this season help or hurt Russell's chances of getting back on Survivor?

My guess is it's legal, and it's one of those "solved challenge" things no one on the show has solved yet (similar to the beam challenge where people can just climb over each other). Good call.

I can buy this. But if crazy means deranged, senseless, false mental perceptions, disconnected to reality, then Philip is closer to crazy than Brandon is.

Re: Shawn Hantz. He is the only Hantz I'd like to see on Survivor again.
Great idea for the strategy. Shouldn't be disallowed, as Philip hoisted it up and down when readjusting his grip. Also, Fans' strategy of overloading just 1 guy first was dumb. Need to balance it, to put weight on both and get them both to quit. Their way made it too easy on Philip for the first half of the game, which is part of the reason he lasted the longest.

Because of this, Brandon's gripe about Philip not winning them the challenge is probably correct. To make it obvious, in a hypothetical where Brandon lasts through 100 coconuts, and Philip has none, then Brandon obviously deserves the vast majority of the credit for the win, even if Philip is the last one remaining.

Re: Sean Hantz, also agree that it would be interesting to see him play.

Probably neither, or maybe slightly hurt, in terms of it ever happening. But the main impact is it probably delays it, if it were possible. Have to wait a bit between Hantz seasons. If Brandon weren't on this season, you could have Russell back in the next returning player season (or even both, in a Hantz vs Hantz season, which some would love, and some would hate!). As is, you probably have to wait a couple more returning player seasons before it's even a possibility.

Neither. Russell has shown great composure when things are not going his way and I legitimately believe he loves the game too much to ever quit. I also don't think he has stopped playing since he left the island. He seems to spend much of his time fostering relationships with recent survivors. Although that may just be him trying, and being quite successful it seems, to sleep with them.

I watched a preview of this challenge on CBS.com that showed the CBS staff trying out this challenge in advance, and in that challenge, the staff was doing exactly this..the guys holding the nets were jerking it up and down so that most of the cocunuts missed

Wifey feels like the strain on the arms would make the up-and-down strategy a net negative. She'd know better than I would (teaches massage therapy)

As it gets heavier, for sure. Can't do much other than try not to drop it. But at the beginning, when there's almost no weight, then up-and-down definitely seems optimal.

Up-and-down strategy is clearly superior to sit-and-hold. The video VTChess mentioned shows just how well up-and-down works with an empty net.

Anyone else listen to Brandon's exit interviews? He attacked Cesternino for something Jerri Manthey said on a different Survivor after show. And he wasn't much better on Dalton Ross' podcast.

I hate anybody that only hangs out w/ 3 other ppl, makes it clear they have an alliance, etc. when if you just play a somewhat normal social game ur alliance is unlikely to get targeted at that point.

Pretty sure Mikayla has been confirmed and he's definitely at least been trying with RC.

Re: Survivor Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites (Premieres Wednesday February 13th at 8PM ET on CBS)

Brandon seemed to want to come out this season to show he's not a pussy after getting played so bad last season. He basically said as much throughout the episode. He'd be kind of an LOL this guys crazy cast member but the fact that he is only on the show cuz hes a hantz is so dumb (because hes not strategic at all). I'd much rather see a random with an hour of Russell coaching them before the season if you want to cash in on Russell still.

Brandon is just nuts, and he's so nuts he couldn't take advantage of the biggest mistake of all: Phillip wanted to throw the challenge. A normal person takes that and runs with it, talking about tribe unity and blah blah.

Then again, this is the guy who voted off a chick because he wanted to sex her so bad he couldn't think of anything else.
