"Yul earned it? He followed the clues given to him. So, yes, he earned it. Colton didn't earn it? He followed the clues given to him: No EI, one camp, two idols. I'd say he earned this season's idol."
Huh? Whuh??? Funny stuff. Best to just let that drop.
"He got what he wanted, what he needed."
The only reason he NEEDED it was because of his own idiotic play.
Even then, I still contend he didn't truly need it. With no HII, if he says to the rest of the Misfits- "I'll vote with you guys"- then he ends up in the same position. As much as they'd like to get rid of him, they'd still gladly take the majority and secure their own places before doing so. The HII just makes it more secure. That's all.
