I agree with Michel, too.
It was the most PAINFUL to watch, because I like JT. But it doesn't make him the dumbest contestant ever.
I think that his performance in Tocantins marked him as smart. And while this move was certainly dumb, remember that we know 100 times more about Russhell than JT does.
JT was filming Heroes V. Villians when Samoa was being aired. So JT had no idea that Russhell was a master manipulator when he encountered him this season.
And I think you need to draw the distinction between "dumbest move ever" (this one was near the top, though I think that Erik's move was the single dumbest) and "dumbest survivor ever". Because even relatively intelligent people have a brain cramp once in a while that makes them look dumb.
Now if JT had been acting braindead for the whole two seasons he'd been on the show, you might be right.
Agman made this fancy sig for me
