Dinner, Movie and a Betrayal
By Alicia Calaway
What's up with Lex? Taking Clarence aside to tell him he was getting voted out was the dumbest thing he could have done. It was certain to rub others the wrong way and it did. And he compounded the error by going on a witch-hunt to try and find out who voted against him. He doesn't deserve to win. If she's smart, Kelly will try to turn Tom and Ethan against Lex. They know he's a physical threat. And now they know he's a jerk. At some point, I predict Tom and Ethan will turn against Lex. That means the game is Ethan's to lose. If he continues to fly under the radar, he's golden. But he has to be careful not to appear to be too strong. That was the mistake I made. I went full-out every time because I'm a competitive person. I should have backed off a bit. In the outback, I should have jumped off of that pole much sooner and made myself seem weaker. Remember, Tina and Richard rarely won a challenge. Appearing to be weak can be your greatest strength.
The players are entering Days 25, 26 and 27. Some players will now tire of playing the game and it will show. When you feel vulnerable and you've reached your limit, you start to give up. As the game goes on, it's hard to think because you begin to suffer on every level. The environment, the hunger and the mental pressure all start to kill you.
I guess Lex is safe for at least another week...
Do you suppose his "witch hunt" was successful, which would mean T-bird got the axe?
