Also, didn't Brandon ask Coach why their tribe was not allowed to talk to the Savaii tribe members until right before tribal council? I am thinking that Coach told Brandon that because he is such a loose cannon and tends to spill secrets at tribal council. They are probably keeping Brandon out of all of the strategizing and just telling him who to vote for.
I did think that it was odd that Brandon was rooting for Jim to win at RI. But, it was a no-brainer that Whitney was rooting for Keith, and no one was pulling for Ozzy. But who knows what goes on in Brandon's head?
