It seems ironic. Dawn didn't think it mean to vote out Francesca (first again-poor girl) and Brandon thought it was mean for them to. Him saying that to Dawn makes him mean? I agree-Dawn is being a big baby. Brandon is definitely unhinged, and it looks like he gets worse, but at that moment I didn't think he was being SO mean that she had to go off and cry on the beach.
Shemar (sp??) is a complete and utter jerk, but they need him to get rid of the pretties. Once they (or most of them) are gone then they need to get rid of Shemar, but I could see them keeping him as a non-vote at final tribal. Only thing is, that has backfired before.
