BB: The Rainbow Flag

-crying- Lol

Siblings are meant to be rivals and challenge each other – but to not be close to your parents, close to one parent or close to each parent, in a different way – is truly something and is quite sad.

“Beggars can’t be choosers” – so the saying goes. I talked about this, about a week ago. Why didn’t Brett and JC rally all the misfit toys and pull together a minuteman militia?? I get it, Rockstar is a pretty unique individual. But, each person is a vote and each person can row together, with the team. You had a ragtag Dumbledore’s Army, to lead, right there, JC!

There are bisexuals, but the two big groups of people are people who like men and people who like women. Gay males and straight females tend to be friends and gay females and straight males tend to be friends.

Sometimes, outside of the realm of social justice, it’s hard for most gay males and gay females to have a ton of things in common. So, I get it, if JC didn’t immediately gravitate to Kaycee. But Angela? It’s odd that the both of them had so very little to say to each other (??). No one is going to throw JC a lifesaver, as he floats, in the wake of the downed Titanic.

Bitterness Level? JC is a 9 out of 10, as of now – especially if the Three sit him down and tell him that he really didn’t know what was going on, in the game and that a mega-alliance was running the show, for almost the entire season.

I am never a fan of dropping hints to people, that they’re going home. Rob is very much against this idea and says as much, in The Evolution of Strategy series – detailing all of the Survivor seasons – several times.

The emotional approach makes the victor want to feel sorry for the vanquished and put them out of their mercy. But this depends on how you define ‘mercy.’

Telling someone he or she is going home – that the house or the tribe is going to execute them – only draws out the pain and makes the mark suffer more. The HG or the tribe member, sitting on Death Row, may become despondent or desperate and do something crazy, like the oft-quoted ‘dumping the rice.’

The death-throe thrashing of the defeated hurts the group, as a whole. A swift blindside is more merciful, for everyone involved, even if he or she is initially more bitter. For JC and Sam, the silence of the lambs is preferred to the reverse.

Speaking of Sam, she talks a big game, but never does anything. If Sam was so upset, she should have taken out Tyler and won the half-million. Don’t talk about doing it; do it.

Sam should have channeled all this talk, about lead pipes and curb stomping, into altering her fate, in the game. Now, it’s too late and she’s going home. Should-have, could-have; could-a, would-a. “A day late and a dollar short,” as Angela would say.

let go

BB: “Loyal, Honesty, Trust” AKA The Cat’s Paw

How I feel about most people

Game recognizes game; rat recognizes rat.

JC has played a bang-up game. He’s definitely a Tier 2 player. But as I have mentioned, a couple of times before, JC has a real blind spot, when it comes to Tyler.

Remember, one of the #48LawsOfPower is ‘Don’t Commit to Anyone.’ This doesn’t mean don’t get married; it means don’t believe in someone, so much, that you could completely overlook the possibility that said person, might be lying to you.

JC has had an otherwise airtight, rock-solid game, but his inability to see that Tyler has a Final Two, with Kaycee and a showmance, with Angela, defies all logic, at this point.

Angela has now put JC and Sam up on the block. The hammer is coming down. Why would Tyler risk alienating Kaycee, by backdooring her, at this late stage, in the game, when they have had a bulletproof Final Two, for this entire season?

JC still doesn’t even know Level 6 exists. Heck, before yesterday, JC didn’t even know that Angela used to be a professional athlete.

There’s a ton of things that JC doesn’t know, even though he’s done so much for Tyler and Level 6. JC was Tyler’s cat’s paw. Tyler was the monkey that used JC’s paw, to get the chestnuts, out of the fire. JC is about to get burned, instead of him.

JC has put all his eggs, into Tyler’s basket! He has no one else! It’s too late to go back to Angela and Kaycee and either turn them against each other or get one of them to work with him, to get rid of Tyler.

Angela never liked JC, anyway. JC and Sam have always been friends, but their friendship hasn’t really translated into power, in the game. JC doesn’t have a paddle left, on this creek!

JC will definitely win, if he can get to the end. JC would need to win, at least, two competitions, now, just to give him a sturdy footing against the Three – Tyler, Angela and Kaycee.  Tangela and Kaycee have swept the competitions and ran the game, since almost a month ago.

It turns out that most of the Level 6 fans were Brett fans. Brett was the consummate showman, but now the Brett fans are waking up – and finally becoming Anti-Tyler. Tyler’s mask has been slipping more and more, lately. Laugh at Sam all you want, but Tyler is a snake; he’s a snitch.

My prediction, that Tyler’s ice-cold, vampire nature would rise to the surface, is coming to fruition. “Tell your friends,” indeed. Tyler better stay “two steps ahead,” because JC, Kaycee and even Sam, could still win, at this point.

always come in w. low expectations
