"JP and Colby are in agreement over tribal strength vs alliance building."
What makes it even more unbelievable is that Colby himself chose alliance over strength both times he played:
In Australia, Kel wasn't voted out over beef jerky, that was the convenient excuse, the Ogakor5 (of which Colby was a member)agreed Kel would be the first one voted out even before they reached their camp. Then, according to Mitchell, Colby wanted Keith voted out 2nd but the girls made them agree on Mad Dog.
In S8, Colby was a leading force behind the eviction of Hatch. Of course, Colby didn't know he wasn't in the alliance but that's another story.
