I’m disappointed in both Sharon and Ryan tonight. I wanted to see those two battling it out in the finale for votes — two strong players with very different gameplay. Instead, we have Adam once again voting for anyone who’ll cry to him and throwing the game a different way. We have Sharon refusing to play the game one time too many, refusing a deal (even if ultimately meaningless) that might have covered her secret alliance long enough to save the day. We have Ryan believing something Adam says? I still don’t get that one.
So who might win this? Ryan is the last one left in the house who deserves to win. He’s orchestrated most of it in the last month. He’s won competitions. He’s had Final Two and Final Three deals with just about everyone in the house and never been caught on it. He’s hid behind a smile and a friendly demeanor while plotting everyone else’s ouster. He’s a great actor. He got voted out of the house once and still survived, despite an obnoxious partner nobody liked, and a girlfriend in the house that people didn’t like. Sheila cries a lot and doesn’t do much. She’s made one strong power play in the season and that’s it.
Adam is an idiot who gets caught in every lie, who nobody really likes, who stabs all of his partners in the back, and yet keeps getting away with it. How he’s slid this far down the slide of this game I’ll never know. It’s still not enough to get my vote, though.
But how will the jury vote? I don’t think Sheila can win, even with the “I deserve it” and “I’m a single mother” cards being played. The jury is too cynical for that to work this season.
So, Ryan versus Adam? Adam is a buffoon. Ryan is well-liked, and if he’s smart he’ll tell everyone everything he’s done, reveal himself as the master manipulator nobody saw coming, and take the half million dollar prize.
That’s my theory.
