interesting counterpoints cyclone.
tarzan's a plastic surgeon. he has to have some intelligence. and as lame as the "goat" strategy is, it's second only to kim's strategic game. it seems to us that tarzan doesn't try during challenges, and purposely fails. the ring toss last week, he watched the other person win, before attempting his last tosses. either he's that lame, or is trying to be the goat genius. we're hoping the latter.
heck, the only strategy exhibited this season were kim, colton, and too late troy. jonas talked, but never was able to pull the trigger. alicia is a hanger on, appearing to have game by hanging with those who actually had strategy but not making any moves.
perhaps this is the post russell fallout, where instead of playing too much strategy and irritating everyone, the strategy choice of most players now is the "just make sure my name isn't written down" before every tribal. which was lief, jay, mike, christina, sabrina, and many early departures' strategy. so, if you don't want to be a leader, you hang out with the dynamic personalities who speak their minds, and when they say "i was thinking vote out ___" as long as that's not your name, you agree. it's a lamer strategy than playing the goat.
as for the jonas/tarzan exchange, i thought there was some kind of amicable resolution. being wrong about that, it means that jonas wouldn't vote for him. puts a hole in our idea.
kim's game has been strong, but she's left plenty of opportunities for others to usurp her, if there were any strategy being played by this cast. she'd be tested if any other cast member has any game. kat is so dumb, and kim is clever enough to play her. after winning the rc and not picking kat, she came back and played kat with the "it was terrible to win and have to pick ppl" line. classic psychology. it's so tough to be the leader and make the decisions, kat, you just be a good little soldier, don't think - i'm doing that for all of us, and stay in line. good manipulation, shame of kat for letting it work.
the previews for next week tease of the cat fight to come. i bet kim's name never comes up, that's how little game her minions have: instead of fighting to win, they're fighting to be 4th.
