Probst finally comes to his senses and takes over. He makes Erik give the Immunity Idol to the Fans. Reynold -- clearly unable to read the room -- asks Probst if he can throw his hands up and announce that the Fans have won Immunity. Everyone's like, "Simmer down, Reynold." Dawn looks like she's about to puke.
Probst says they're going to vote now. Brandon votes for Phillip. Everyone else votes for Brandon. This is such horseshit. For someone who talks so much about the integrity of the game and whatnot, Probst shouldn't have let the Fans see the vote and they shouldn't have had to vote out loud, look Brandon in the eyes and say his name. I mean, the outcome would have been the same regardless, but this could have been handled a lot better. Probst continues to massage Brandon's shoulders as he says that he's voted out.
Probst says that he loves Brandon, but he's not going back to camp. He instructs Brandon to walk around the back of the challenge and then he'll come and find him. Brandon walks out and keeps talking. He tells the Fans to "kick their ass" and then calls out, "Phillip, you're a bitch!" I hope security tasered him five seconds later. Probst says the game just got a lot more interesting and Erik says that was a long time coming. Dawn says she's not sure if the tribe is better off, but she thinks Brandon is.
Probst tells the Fans that this could be a game changer for them and they may not love how they got immunity, but they got it and they don't have to go to Tribal. Ugh. I'm just glad Brandon's gone. I think it's completely irresponsible of the producers to have cast him again in the first place. I don't care if he passed the psych exam. Even if he's mentally healthy, he is obviously an angry and violent little man, and he shouldn't be playing this game. It made me sad to watch. I hope he gets whatever help he needs and never comes back.
