Not really an excuse, and it may not do him any favors in the long run, but to me he just seems to be really having fun experiencing the game first hand. Like a kid in a candy store if you will. The only part I found really obnoxious is when he asked Jeff if he could say the words he always does to the winning team when presenting the idol to them. I am kind of on the fence with Reynold at this point.
    If that's true and that's all Reynold could think about at a time like that, while seeing how upset the other teams was and not giving a thought for how distraught Brandon was, then he just further proves how self centered and entitled he is. He has no empathy, no thoughts for what the others are going through, only glee that this benefits him. I think he's a narcissist

    If you read some posts on Brandon, after his interview others don't have much empathy for Brandon either, that doesn't make them bad people.

    If I was playing a game for a million bucks and my game just went from a possible Pagonging to having a chance at turning things around, I'd be pretty full of glee too. I think everyone would. Some people might show it, some might not. I'm with Fanny, doesn't make you a bad person. It means you want to win the game!

Another interesting tidbit, the contestants don't walk to the challenges or to TC like it appears on TV. In Gabon, they were driven in vehicles with black plastic covering the windows. That prevents contestants from seeing where they are, and from seeing parts of the production such as base camp. After arriving, they're kept in a waiting area until Jeff Probst calls them in to the challenge, which is what we see on TV. They are not allowed to talk to one another until cameras are rolling either at the challenges or back at camp, ensuring that viewers won't ever miss a critical moment.

    Interesting stuff
    I love all that behind the scene stuff . I thought Jeff had said TC was sometimes 2 hours. Even so, if it is 90 mins, we really dont get to see much do we?

    You're right, that moment does not make him a bad person. Just a bad player. He's had plenty of other moments where he proved he was a bad person.

    Eh, and I am done on this point. Just a couple of more days until the next show! Hopefully we'll get an actual immunity challenge this time.

    Yeah, Andrea's fault. You've got two mentally unstable guys, but it's Andrea's fault.

    Once again, I would advise watching the first couple of episodes, where we see Reynold's group become allies and the others take notice of it.
    I don't get offended by alliances, at all. Only when the alliance is a minority, 4 versus 6, and yet the minority group feels they are somehow superior and talks about how the others want to be them. And yes, if it was 4 older people and they did the same thing, I would find it obnoxious, but beyond that, completely STUPID. Doesn't matter what age you are, dumb is dumb.

    I don't even know how to respond to the "we are conditioned to hold resentment against young attractive people" comment. Since the opposite is actually the truth. Anyone reading this thread can see how Reynold is getting a pass with a lot of people BECAUSE he is attractive, despite his heinous personality. And why doesn't everyone hate Malcolm, since he's good looking? And young?

    I've never seen a jerk get a pass because they are old or ugly. If someone could name one, I'd love to see it.
    Didnt Malcolm say last nite when he was talking to Andrea I think, that he likes her, but, hes good a lying to girls?

    He did say that he was experienced at lying to girls but what he lied to her about was having the Idol. She dreamed that he had one and asked him directly. He told her no, which is a lie... then he made that comment.
