Every year, I hope that we get a few intelligent people that understand the basic principles of taking yourself to the finals. It's not just about your own performance in competitions, but who you decide should be eliminated as quickly as possible. At the same time, if you consider yourself a strong player, you should expect to be targeted at all times.
Yet that's what we rarely see every single year. The weakest players are picked off one by one, leaving most of the more athletic and/or most intelligent people in the final weeks (with one floater somehow coasting through). Those that believe themselves to be perfect specimens somehow also believe that they have a God-given right to just coast to the final week of the show (ala Jessie).
This is just idiotic, and we're seeing it play out once again. Last week, Hayden did make a smart move in putting up Brendon, but he should have paired him with somebody besides Rachel. Of course, he was a bit hamstrung as he aligned himself with all of the house's meatheads.
An hour after her surprising victory, Rachel appears to be the next to make a fatal mistake. She has a great opportunity to take out one of The Brigade. Instead, she's going to play the catty game of targeting two silly twits who don't have a chance in hell of winning. Both Britney and Monet are due to leave anytime soon. Now is not the time.
