From his MSN.com contestant profile:
"Brandon says: It would be a great opportunity to have money for my family and it was going to be an opportunity to show America there's more to the Hantz family than what Russell brought to Survivor. I am the exact opposite of my uncle Russell but most of my family doesn't think that's true.
Jeff [Probst] says: He's the underdog."
From his EW.com new contestant picture caption (by Dalton Ross):
"Just when you thought Survivor was finally done with Russell Hantz, along comes his nephew Brandon. And Brandon is on a mission to show that there is a much different side to the Hantz family. What side might that be? 'It's loyal. It's courageous. It's kind of like a golden retriever,' says Brandon. 'I want to show that we have morals and values and we have a standard in the Hantz family.' So what kind of advice did Uncle Russell give him? 'Pretty much to stay calm. If somebody tries to get in my face, to not lose my temper. Other than that, he knows I'm a nice guy to be around, and as long as I keep my cool, it's going to be smooth sailing.'"
