One screwed up dude.  One emotionally stunted, extremely screwed up young man.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I actually would have preferred Brandon staying and Phillip being voted out. Phillip is a complete nut job, hopefully he goes next. Scary that he was an FBI agent or whatever it was. How could somebody like him pass the psychological testing, background checks, etc. when he's so obviously screwed up. Total whacko who has somehow manipulated the rest of his tribe. Brandon gave the other tribe some very good advice, to get rid of Phillip. Hope it happens soon.

I don't take Phlllip seriously or even see him as a bully. He's just another guy like Coach who thinks way too much of himself, and revels in getting to play his act to a captive audience of fellow island-dwellers. His tribemates are going along with his buffoonery and laughing at him behind his back. However, his social skills have admittedly improved since his last season, and he's been unexpectedly great in challenges. But if the Favorites go into the merge with numbers, he should be the first to go once they are forced to turn on each other.

From the interview with Probst above:


EW: What’s the responsibility of the show in terms of post-Survivor psychological care? I know all the contestants have access to a psychologist after they are voted off, but this is somewhat new territory since you’ve never had a meltdown of this magnitude before.
PROBST: The key is as you said — all contestants have access to psychological counseling after the show.  That starts the moment they are voted out. Our psychologist is the first person they see after leaving tribal council. Brandon is no different. Our psychologist is there for any contestant who needs care whenever they need it. If necessary we find a psychologist or therapist for a contestant in their home town. I can’t speak about Brandon specifically due to confidentiality, but we are in constant communication with him and will be for as long as he needs it.

What a perfect description of Phillip. I've been trying to describe him to friends, but couldn't find the right words. You nailed it.

 

If he's the type of person hired on as "federal agents" we've got some major problems in this country.

 

I'm hoping the rest of his tribe realizes what a loon he really is and boots him out before the merge. Coach was always strange, but take Coach times four and it equals one Phillip. Apparently bringing back the "favorites" also includes bringing back the whack jobs.

I have a relative who could say they were a "federal agent" for the CIA.. but I wouldn't trust that person to make me toast because they are a flake.   Having a job somewhere doesn't mean that you're doing a lot of work for them, it just means they employ you.

Been a busy couple days with the HTF migration. Good
to be back in good company after watching SURVIVOR
this morning.

Philip continues to be entertaining, and I guess I was wrong
about what I said prior about after being told by Brandon
that he was being an idiot, that perhaps he would rethink some
of the special agent rhetoric he has been spewing throughout
the game. Nothing has changed.

I am certain it was quite laughable for everyone to watch Philip
talk about his operation stealth program with Matt and Michael,
and their attempts to show that they were taking his bullshit ever
so seriously.

With this past week's reshuffling of the tribes, it plainly looks as
if the GOTA tribe has the advantage of strength. They are going
to be very difficult to topple moving forward until the eventual merge.

Was not particularly happy to see Matt voted out. I liked him, and
had actually preferred that one of the women went home instead.

I am still sticking with Malcolm making it to the end of the game.

Good job on the system change Ron. I've done many of them myself and they can be quite painful and time consuming.

 

Agree with your choice of Malcolm. If he just stays under the radar and plays well, he won't have to worry, the other players will slowly eliminate each other until it gets down to individual challenges which he will easily win.

 

Eddie or Reynold could pull it off, but I sense a little bit of resentment building within the other players. They're to impressed with themselves and think they have control of everything. Wouldn't be surprised to see one of them leave fairly soon.

Sorry about that massive picture of Philip in my last post. It was a more reasonable size on the old forum. I'd fix it but I don't see a way to edit an old post yet.

I think you should leave it - every time I look at it I crack up laughing.

Is that even real? Or just somebody having fun with Photoshop?

 

If it's real, it had to be a direct to video type of thing, maybe sold 100 copies to friends and relatives. I wouldn't even rent it if I came across a copy, you can just tell from the photo how cheezy the thing must be.

In the past, people have commented on the physical intensity of some of the challenges. This one, on the French version, doesn't sound too serious, and yet a contestant died:

I have learned that some pain cannot be healed, but must be endured. I believe our Higher Power will help us to endure and find peace. I loved the boy with the utmost love of which my soul is capable and he is taken from me-yet in the agony of my spirit in surrendering such a treasure, I feel a thousand times richer than if I had never possessed it."

Should have clicked on Paul's Amazon link before commenting.

 

Still pretty funny. Good for Phillip trying to stretch his 15 minutes of "celebrity" and make some cash on the side. Not a chance he'll win this game so it's smart to find another way to build the bank account.

Phillip is a mess.  "Yeah, I totally threw that challenge".

 

This season is pretty boring overall, at least for me anyway.

I am surprised Phillip is still in this.  Then again, I should realize the

show's manipulation techniques to portray him as the biggest problem

in the tribe so that viewers think his dismissal is imminent.

I think Phil sticks around because everybody wants to sit next to him at final tribal.

Definitely a mess. I don't know how he's got all his tribe members fooled, especially with his "I'm the leader" routine.

 

Totally amazed he didn't get a few votes, but like Ron said, this show is full of manipulation techniques, so we're only seeing what they want us to see.
