And I think Brandon is warped about his values about Christianity. Clearly, he needs to read the bible more or attend more church services.

I'm currently watching the SoPa finale. And I just can't help but be so impressed of how freaking mature this kid was back then. He was 19 years old and I would say he was easily the most mature person out there besides Dawn, who is fully grown up with a husband, kids, and a highly successful job. And I just think of the way he acted this season and I just say what the hell happened to him. I hardly ever cry during tv shows. I've never cried through a loved one visit or somebody breaking down or someone I really liked getting voted out. The ONE TIME I cried while watching Survivor was when he stood up for Cochran at Tribal Council when Keith was voted out. It was just really moving and touching that someone could say that to a fully grown man who was really expressing his total hatred for Cochran. I just really don't understand where that Brandon Hantz went.

Brandon Hantz banned from Survivor reunion as Russell Hantz threatens Phillip Sheppard

Brandon Hantz banned from Survivor reunion as Russell Hantz threatens Phillip Sheppard
Survivor Caramoan Ľ   
May 10, 2013, 7:51 AM

Brandon Hantz wonít be present for the Survivor Caramoan reunion on Sunday, having apparently been told he cannot attend by CBS and/or the showís producers. Meanwhile, Russell Hantz has threatened Phillip Sheppard, even suggesting heíll go to jail as a result of whatever he does to Phillip.

The exclusion of a cast member from the reunion would be unprecedented in Survivor history, and itíll be interesting to hear how Jeff Probst explains Brandonís absence. If only CBS, Probst, or whoever made this decision had made the same decision a year ago and not cast Brandon on season 26. (That said, Russell actually makes an interesting point in one of these tweets: CBS cleared him to appear on the season, the producers left him on the beach far longer than they should have, and now theyíve decided itís not okay?)

There was chatter about Brandonís exclusion from the finale earlier this week, but I wasnít able to confirm anything beyond that cast members were talking about the possibilities. In a series of tweets last night, Brandonís uncle, Russell Hantz, confirmed it and assigned blame:



As he did in the tweet above, Russell again suggested he may appear at the finale, and pretty clearly threatened Phillip, although his writing and the pronouns in the third tweet here makes it sound like heís retained an attorney who will bail him out after he attacks the attorney:

I saw this too and think Russell just wants the Survivor limelight again. But honestly, that means $20,000 lesser for Brandon, as that's the price that people who attend the reunion show are paid. And since he's a returnee, won't be surprise if he lost more than $20,000.

This should be exciting. I doubt Russell would do anything physical, but he'll definitely have some harsh words for "The Specialist"

Sigh... I just want two full years without watching a Hantz on Survivor. Please. I don't want them to continue their whatever bickering to the live reunion where more people can witness the argument and shouting in reality. Maybe some tears will be shed from the castaways during the fight, like what happened with Brandon.

Unless that Mr/Ms Hantz is not like Russell (because I don't want to think all Hantz's are jerks). But so far, with Russell, Willie (BB) and Brandon, not much luck.

This ^ x1000!  Between Survivor, Big Brother and that house flipping show Russell had with one of his brothers last year I think we've seen enough of the dysfunction of this family.  Something tells me the difference between Brandon the first time and this time had a lot to do with the influence of his uncle.  That guy is a loud, obnoxious bully with a heck of an ego to put it kindly.  If he thinks for one second that CBS won't stop him from going to the finale or do whatever they can to keep him away from Philip (or any cast member) we can add delusional to that list as well.  After watching this season, I think CBS needs to find someone new to do their psychological screenings.  It's one thing to cast quirky, nutty people who may be annoying but are otherwise harmless.  It's another thing for them to cast emotionally unstable and ill tempered people who are not in the least bit entertaining.  We're talking about a roughly month long wilderness survival experience that any participant can walk away from at any time.  To have people melting down left and right tells me either there is a problem with the psych screening or producers are manipulating things to the point of being abusive.

Casting knew exactly what they were getting. Poor decision I feel...

Brandon was a nice young man by the end of SoPa, they didn't know he would be a mentally unstable fruitloop this time.

I only half agree. He wasn't evil or villainous in any way. But he was clearly having some issues... especially with Mikayla lol. :P

There were signs that he was unstable the first time around.  Whatever mental health problems or internal conflicts the kid has should have given the psychologists a reason not to clear him again.  Making it through the game without completely losing it the first time shouldn't have been a reason to throw him back in.

Besides the Mikayla thing, he was fine. Sticking up for Cochran, not outbursting after the merge, giving Albert immunity, being humble and thankful when he lost Redemption Island.
