Despite the pleas, Ronnie is indicating that he's still putting up two of his crew (probably Casey and Laura). Somehow, though, they're supposed to approve of this plan because the goal is to backdoor Russell.
That's beyond ridiculous. You just can't say with a straight face that two people are pawns. Even if you have 100% faith in the HOH, there's a pretty strong chance that one of your own will be going home. Either the wrong person will win HOH, or the person on your side who wins it goes against his alliance and doesn't use it, or the HOH will double cross his side. They all have to see through his plan.
Ronnie must believe that everybody in the house is an idiot...and maybe he's right.
