Brenden began the game as simply a member of Regan's alliance. Brenden quickly proved his supposed dumb side after he couldn't remember the name of Chloe, the person he had just voted out. Ida even commented that Brenden was possibly lacking a few brain cells. Brenden further proved his naivete as he grabbed the hot sand during the challenge in order to supposedly make a fire. Despite this, Brenden's tribe won that challenge, sparing him from elimination.
Brenden had small dumb moments throughout the pre-merge stage, such as always being confused on who he was supposed to vote out, but his tribe won the remainder of the challenges after Joel was voted out, so he did not have to worry about any elimination.
However, when the merge came along, Brenden quickly proved that he did indeed have a strategic side as he began to play both sides. Brenden made deals with the entire tribe, having a Final Two deal with Taylor, and a Final Three deal with Luke and Rodger. He also still had the Sweetheart Alliance. He convinced the entire tribe to vote out Ida instead of his ally, Regan, after Harvey had been sent home at the auction. Ida was blindsided, and the entire Anti-Sweetheart Alliance realized that they had to vote him out. Brenden was sent home next.
