Interesting episode for the Fans tribe...Shamar leaving due to an eye injury was unexpected though he may have been gone this episode regardless. I do not get why his 'tude was so poor...he was in the majority alliance of a tribe (albeit one that couldn't win challenges ever). It can't be cause he couldn't handle the heat/conditions though when the reunion rolls around, I'm guessing he'll claim it. Laura going out in the vote smacks of a vote of desperation by the majority but the HIII got played so it served a purpose anyways.
As for the Favorites, biggest thing was the preview for next ep where Brandon looks to go into nuclear meltdown...could he be the first kicked off the show for hitting another cast member? Anyone else, no, but the Hantz blood runs pretty wild emotions wise.
