Now that we're even closer to the finale episode it becomes important to start figuring out exactly what the jury is thinking before they make their final votes.
Luckily, and it's a fun one, xfinity has held a one-word test near the end of each of their exit interviews.
Granted, one word doesn't spell out the exact outcome or the exact nature of the relationship between each of the possible final3 members and the current jurors, but it may help.
So I condensed each of the responses from each of the current jurors for each of the remaining castaways.
Let's see if we can't further parse their language and figure out whom might actually win this season.
Starting with Josh and working our way down, here is what each of the jurors stated about those still left in the game...
Jaclyn: Pageant girl.
Keith: Good olí boy.
Missy: Yikes. (Laughs)
Jon: Jonís a cartoon character.
Keith: Good olí boy.
Missy: Missy doesnít make good decisions with men.
Natalie: My sister.
Keith: One liners.
Natalie: Good player.
Baylor: No comment.
Jaclyn: Miss Michigan.
Jon: A little bit naÔve.
Keith: Man, country boy.
Natalie: Natalie was a bad ass.
3 of the remaining castaways still have yet to reach the jury, and we won't get these one-word associations from at the least 1 of them. But I'm guessing that even though these reponses are made well over 3 months after filming, there are clues as to whom they met with at the Ponderosa, whom they might still hold grudges against and ultimately whom they will end up voting for at final tribal council.
Also under consideration is how pairs might adjust their thoughts after meeting up at Ponderosa. Reed/Josh for instance.
Josh is apparently scared of Missy and describes Baylor as young. Whereas Reed has no comment about Baylor and see's Missy as a she-wolf. I can't say they are diametrically opposed in views but I have a feeling that Reed may be able to pull Josh over to his way of thinking if Baylor and Missy are both in the finals. Missy. Yet they both give Jaclyn a rote response of Pagaent or pagaent girl. Neither sounds confirmative of Jaclyn making it to F3.
In all honesty, I can't help but notice that of all the people remaining, Keith seems to be the only one with fairly innocuous word-associations from all of the current jurors. Countryboy, good ol boy, one-liners and spit. Does this moreso mean that they all got to know him at Ponderosa or does this point to all of them having no real objections to him being in Final 3?
Whereas Baylor's word-associations tend towards the negative end of things, and to me, pin-pointing the probability that Baylor is in the final 3 and never got to know people at Ponderosa or perhaps show an alternate side of herself that might help people be more understanding of who she is IRL.
