"There's also balance beam or stand on a tiny perch that would help her."}
MAJOR props to you for calling this shot. Although I feel it was the special pants moreso than the balance beam that gave Britny the advantage.
But in the end...Pathetically inept is as pathetically inept does.
Gotta pick your brain on this one. Once Britney was out, there was no incentive for Boogie to win that competition. With Frank as HOH no one on his team will be nominated and he is untouchable with any potential swap. So with no benefit to gain from winning the competition, why put himself in a position to have to wear the Black Hat and select four HGs to be Have-nots? On the other hand his desire to be the most dominate HG ever would drive him to want to win the competition putting him between a rock and a hard place.
By being the first to stack his money he could "unofficially" deem himself the winner of the competition; but by "accidentally" stepping off the beam before he rang in he would not officially be declared the winner and not have to name have-nots. The best of both worlds in his mind.
Now those who hate Malin will say his "showboating" cost him the win. Don't get me wrong, personally I think he's a douchbag as a person' but he's a savvy enough BB player to pull off what I suggested. Personally I am not a fan of throwing competitions,. but if you are going to do it, do so in a manner where no one would suspect you're tanking.
