How can a group of people who’ve all played the game before not have a clue as to how to play the game? How can they all be willing sheep and let Rob roll over them the way he’s doing? They’ve had plenty of outs now, and they’ve all turned over and played dead rather than take an active stand to win the game.
They all deserve to lose.
Don’t get me wrong — Shii Ann came off a bit too whiney at the Tribal Council, but she was right about the power couples. Those are always the first that have to go. When you’re aligning yourself on a reality show like this (or Big Brother), you’re safest bet is to have a secret power couple. If nobody knows the two of you are sharing information and working together, you can roll right over them all. In this game, there are two power couples out in the open, and nobody is challenging them. Big Tom is clueless. Rupert is rolling over. Jenna thinks she knows what she’s doing, but she hasn’t a clue. And Amber is, indeed, under the radar, hiding in the shadow of the lightning rod. When people think of RobAndAmber, they only ever think of Rob.
I have no doubt right now that Rob and Amber will be the final two. The only question is if the jury will let their emotions do the voting for them and thus give Amber the million bucks, or if logic will prevail and they’ll see that Rob played the best game in using and abusing all of them to their faces without so much as a slap on the wrist.
And, then, will Rob pop The Question to Amber at the reunion special and the two can effectively split the million bucks? Or are they contractually bound to never get married, since Survivor rules say you can’t split the money or make any deals for it?
