'Boston Rob' Mariano Laughs as Phillip Reveals All at the First Tribal Council of 'Survivor: Redemption Island' (VIDEO)

The pre-season buzz for 'Survivor: Redemption Island' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) was all about the returns of Russell Hantz and "Boston Rob" Mariano to the game. But in the premiere episode, it was Phillip Sheppard who stole the show with his non-stop insanity.

When Ometepe Tribe lost the Immunity Challenge, Rob's team was sent to Tribal Council. Of course, the three-time 'Survivor' veteran was concerned that he might be the one going, but he had a solid strategy of his own.

Phillip cemented his suspicions with a Tribal Council tirade the likes of which we've never seen before.

"It feels so good to play with you amateurs," Rob said when casting his vote. "You give away so much. You don't even know enough to keep your mouth shut."

He was referring to Phillip blowing the cover wide open on what was supposely his own alliance with Francesca and Kristina. After Phillip spent the episode talking about how he was a former special agent (we love how even the text on the screen puts a question mark after that particular claim) and running around in his droopy tighty-reddies like a crazy person, he turned around and revealed absolutely everything in Tribal Council.

He called out the alliance, indicated they were intending to vote out Rob -- though that wasn't necessarily the case -- and even that Kristina had an Immunity Idol. The only thing he didn't do was say Francesca's name correctly. Meanwhile, Rob just laughed and laughed at his gameplay stupidity.

Proving that he clearly hadn't spent much time with Phillip yet, Rob was actually inclined to believe him over Kristina and Francesca. Granted, the pair were definitely a threat to him, but perhaps not yet.

Phillip survived this week's elimination, but if he keeps coming with the crazy, we can't see him lasting much longer.
