    • True he didn’t need to, but you can’t fault him for that move after Ken’s bonehead actions with Will. I certainly wouldn’t have counted on Will at this point either. Besides in the jury’s eyes they will remember the idol play on the correct person, more than Will’s vote nullifying it. Will’s big move got overshadowed by an idol play, sorry Will.

  1. How could it not be Adam. He couldn’t possibly have made any better move with that horrible advantage than he did. Plus the dude won an individual immunity.

  2. True, but consider it from the perspective of a game player on the wrong side of the numbers hoping beyond all hope your swing vote doesn’t back down because of Ken’s BULLSHIT. (Caps lock for extreme emphasis!) Will also expressed loyalty to Jay, as I said above. It gave Adam legit suspicion, so he played it just to be on the safe side. If he was more selfish, and Will voted for Hannah, he would’ve lost another number and he, David, and Ken would be totally fucked. Tbh, I don’t blame him. It was a tricky vote. But in playing the Idol, Adam actually kind of one-upped him….Not necessarily move-wise, but showmanship-wise. You can be a good magician, but if the other magician has razzle dazzle, you’re paying more attention to him.
