Brandon Hantz Breaks Down Talking About His Uncle Russell (VIDEO)

Brandon Hantz, 'Survivor: South Pacific'While the returning contestants seemed to overwhelm the last season of 'Survivor' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS), Ozzy and Coach haven't been as dominant a presence. Both have built solid positions for themselves, but the rest of the contestants have still managed to stand out as individuals.


Brandon Hantz, of course, has gotten a lot of attention as the nephew of notorious two-time villain Russell Hantz. This week, when his tribe lost the Immunity Challenge, Jeff Probst got his first chance to talk to Brandon about his uncle when Brandon admitted he'd come clean to his tribe about his lineage.

Brandon teared up talking about how he wanted to stand by his uncle, but felt it was difficult to do. "The proof's in the pudding. You can't help somebody who's done that to himself," he said. "But what do you do?"

He said that Russell's performance affected the whole family, and he's not wanting to do the same thing. His hope is to redeem the family name, but he's off to a rough start so far.

Brandon wasn't eliminated though. Instead, a very angry Stacey Powell was sent to Redemption Island to face off against the resilient Christine, who's been there since Day 2.

Brandon is a lyning little weinie. When he is backed into a corner, he cries and lies. His behavior is horrible and he tries to hide behind religion. He is what he is- a Hantz LIAR.

This is a game that Russel knows how to play. I respect a person (even an evil one) who does the job well, and have no respect for the sniveling morally confused nephew. Waiting to see how holy his thoughts are when he gets voted off. On another subject, I am hoping Cochoran makes a bold move soon. Being a follower of the game, he should have a few sneeky moves up his sleeve,
