Jase is insisting that he is being backdoored, but I am not certain that I agree.
I always thought that backdooring somebody involved intentionally not nominating that person in order to then nominate him/her after the Veto Ceremony, leaving him/her no chance for escape. Such a plan involves intentionally nominating two pawns, neither of whom is the target, in order to swoop in with the Veto and then nominate the true target.
But Jase was never the true target here. He is just the victim of circumstance. Nobody intended that he would go on the block this week. Nobody expected Chicken George to actually win the Veto. Everybody assumed that Chicken George would be going home.
I feel little sympathy for Jase's complaint that he never had a chance to defend himself. He competed in the Veto competition, which is more of a chance than many of them had. Yeah, he went in assuming that he was not the target, but an All Star like Jase should know by now that the only guarantee is to win the Veto yourself.
Yeah, the situation sucks for Jase, but I do not agree that he has technically been backdoored. The intentionality is absent.
