I think Brandon acted like a jerk, plain & simple.
The way he acted at challenge/elimination, whatever you want to call it, was just him being ticked off & not wanting to leave quietly. That I have no problem with. What I do have a problem with is the way he behaved at camp.
Threatening to burn the shelter down & everyone's belongings, pee in the rice or beans, those were unacceptable by any standards. Other peoples's stuff & their physical wellbeing is off limits. What he DID do: dumping the rice & beans, is like a spoiled bratty child doing vandalism. No excuse for that.
I have no problem with ranting, raving, name calling, refusing to do anything, or stomping around. That's just spouting anger. It's like the old saying: "Sticks & stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me." It's just words. At worst they are upsetting, but basically harmless.
But interfering with other people's, or the group's property, or their health is on a different level. A level that shouldn't happen. It's going over the line of acceptability. People should be able to trust that those things are safe.
As to his statement earlier that he wanted to go back to his family: When will these people get it. If they aren't going to be willing to stay the whole time DON'T GO ON THE SHOW!! Leave your spot for someone else who actually wants to participate.
If someone can't stand to be away from loved ones or comfort DON'T GO ON THE SHOW!!
What's wrong with these people anyhow? Don't they realize that they have gotten an opportunity that many many others would love to have?
A bunch of crybaby wimps is what people like him are.
I always say that- I said that about the twin doctors on Amazing Race, learn to swim! don't quit, because they took someones spot in my opion. Likewise, so did Brandon
