    Hi All,

    No comments on the episode per se, but if you live out of the States as I do and have been frustrated by the Survivor After Show being geo-blocked on the CBS website or YouTube, try watching via Bing. It worked for me!
  • Brandon has just about all that he can take from Phillip which leads to the biggest meltdown in Survivor history.

    A truly great episode. I never thought I would ever see myself being supportive of a member of the Hantz family, but I certainly was as I watched "Persona Non Grata". Let me state for the record that I am not in any way pleased that Brandon showed signs of mental problems when he blew a gasket. I also do not approve of him dumping out the tribes' food supply. That I feel was very stupid on his part. What I do approve of was Brandon finally having the cojones to stand up to Phillip and his stupid nonsense. I very much enjoyed Brandon telling Phillip just how ludicrous the whole Stealth R Us, Inc. thing with it's cartoonish nicknames is. What was even better was Brandon telling Phillip to do the whole tribe a favor and shut up. Somebody needed to tell Phillip that and I am glad somebody finally did. Brandon's final confrontation with Phillip at the aborted Immunity Challenge was just great, however seeing Jeff Probst massaging Brandon was very odd to me, even a little uncomfortable. The Fans have been handed a golden opportunity to turn the game around. It will be quite interesting to see in future episodes if they will do anything with it.moreless

    I don't expect to go to bed upset, but that's what happened after this show.



    Brandon has serious mental issue and frankly I'd consider hospitalizing him.



    Worst yet, I believe CBS exploited him for the sake of ratings? This may backfire on them as I'm not sure I ever want to watch anything so disturbing again and their decisions to continually bring back characters that are definitely mentally deficient means it'll happen again.



    I've watched every season of this show, but if a Hanzt or Phillip ever shows up again, I'm outta here. This is no longer entertainment.moreless

    I would have loved to see the chaos if team Fans were given the option to have Brandon placed on their team.
  • Bizarre.

    Well I honestly don't know how to describe this episode. The word bizarre comes to mind, as does the word peculiar.



    I just couldn't believe my eyes to be honest. It was a complete meltdown. Brandon's mood swings have always been really tough to watch, but this was on a whole other level.



    I am just stunned. That is all. And very excited to see what comes next.
