Just wanted to make an ECST to talk about Frank's decision regarding nominations. First, I said in the live feeds thread that it showed his limited knowledge of strategy when I heard he had settled on Dan and Danielle and, after seeing the show, I'll add to it by saying he has no idea how this game works.
I wasn't quite sure how Ian's veto worked before seeing the episode but consider this: If Shane (or Britney) wins the 2nd veto then Ian can take Dan off the block, Shane saves Danielle (to her eternal gratitude) and then Frank has to make 2 new nominations...AND he can only choose between Britney, Jenn and Joe. So, who do you suppose Shane, Dan, Danielle and Ian vote for between Joe and Britney???? Frank is a dumbass that really doesn't deserve to still be there. How can he possibly think he can give an ounce of trust to Britney and Shane? Granted, a drowning man will cling to anything but he went for the anchor.
Frank HAD to nominate Dan and either Shane or Ian. The good thing about nominating Ian is that you force him to save himself. Now, even if Shane saves Dan, Frank can turn it around and nominate Britney and Danielle. Nominate Shane and you've put the big veto player in a position to use it on himself if he wins it.
BTW, what's with this new trend to behave like Troyzan when you get blindsided? Frank was yelling at Ian, not even knowing what had really happened, making a complete moron of himself.
I remember how shocked we were when Lex showed so little sportsmanship when he was backstabbed by Rob but, nowadays, players behave 10 times worse than Lex ever did. You got outwitted Frank, deal with it.
