hope, dangles on a string, like slow spinning redemption, winding in and winding out, the shine of it has caught my eye, and roped me in, so mesmerizing, and so hypnotising, i am captivated, i am vindicated.
Heyyy Britt=D I think I should get your vote because I think I deserve to win this thing. I came into this game, probably with the odds against me, And even though it may appear as I did nothing, there was a lot of thinking that went on in every decision I made. Yes I was quiet and played UTR for a lot of the game, but I had many choices to make ever since the first vote, and I obviously made the right ones. I think I played this game smart and very strategicially, and for that you should vote for me.
One behind the scenes thing was at the tribe flip, even though there was that time I had wanted to keep Matt F, I was always trying to keep you here because I made a promise to Zack to keep you here since you two had made that deal to look out for each other. I didn't want to say this to your face though because I just didn't want it getting around everywhere.
Another thing I did behind the scenes was at the merge, even though all the old Norte Chico people said I was safe, you just never know, like you've seen in Big Brother how many times the pawns go home, And I knew that anything could happen with that vote. So when Didham came on like 5 mins before the votes were due and wanted to quit, I actually told him to go vote instead of quit like he was going to because I knew I could easily lose by like 1 vote at that time.
Does that answer your question? If not or you want to know more just let me know! Thanks Britt, go slip in front of your cousin
first i would like both of you to explain why you should have my vote. i dont wanna hear anything about how you played the same, or similar. what you say may decide my vote.
also i would like to know some of what you did behind the scenes, that i may not know about that got you where you are
Congratulations to both of you:)
Alright umm, I will just sorta answer both questions at the same time. I should have your vote because I feel like strategically I played an awesome game every single step of the way. I mean, given every situation, I always had some sorta plan I could pull out of my ass, along with a Plan B, C, and D, I felt like no matter what happened in this game there was ALWAYS another route I could take, always another way for me to get to the end of the game. Unlike some of my other allies, I kept every bridge open with every member of the cast, and while other people made enemies, I just sorta kept a cool head. I guess you could say everything I did was behind the scenes, because people always seemed to think Zack and Alyssa were responsible for everything when I was right there with them making decisions =P.
Obviously, my initial plan was to just go to the end with Chavin, but when the chief twist hit that couldn't happen. Alyssa was taken out, and I had to change my strategy up in order to get my alliance to the end (it was Zack and I all the way). Luckily, Zack got some power when Alyssa chose him for chief, and I knew exactly what we had to do....cut a deal with the Norte Chico alliance. If we didn't do that, then Jordan/Ginny and Zack/Myself prolly woulda been the next 4 boots, and that wouldn't have been any fun. So yeah, I talked to Eddie and Jordan and explained to them how it was better for ALL of us to work together, and they agreed...and I was able to help get people voted out that were not in my core alliance, and was able to get my core alliance to the non-chief part of the game completely intact!
Then comes more need for changing things up....at F7, we had a huge dilemma. What was the best way to get Zack and I to the end? I didn't know...we tried to decide, but found it was prolly too risky to go to Final 4 with Jordan and Eddie. So yeah, we made a move, and unfortunately it caused Zack to get voted out next. I probably had a lot more to do with voting Jordan out than people realized, because we had a "Good Cop / Bad Cop" plan in order to try and keep Eddie on our side, and I got to play the Good Cop haha.
By then I had been forming a bond with Eddie, I always liked and respected him, and Britt/Caydie were an obvious F2, so I knew I had to try and get Eddie on my side and shift my strategy once again. We had long talks, and decided to go to F3 together. I knew I could trust Eddie because he's just a straight up guy, so once the deal was made I was pretty confident in it working out, and it did :]. Unfortunately at F3 I had to make a choice between two people I really liked both of which never wronged me in the game, but I just had to choose the one I'd been with from the beginning.
So yeah, my strategy was just always adapting, leaving all options open so that I could go further.
Other behind the scenes stuff...umm...well I guess you wouldn't really know anything that I did back on the old Chavin tribe, so I'll explain some of that.
Biggest problem we probably had that I noticed was that Chavin ended up splitting down the middle which worried me a TON. Basically it was Alyssa/Zack/Kirin (and I) on one side and then Kylee/Kerri/Kanga on the other side, with Matt D. sorta thrown in there too. I know that if we were that split come merge time we woulda been screwed since Norte Chico seemed pretty tight after the unanimous Melody boot. So I basically had to make deals with both sides so that both sides felt comfortable going to the end together. I wanted a Chavin that was united and strong so that in the merge we would stick together and have the upper hand, and I did everything possible to make sure everyone was cool with each other which was nooooot easy especially with people like Kylee on your tribe that like to cause drama. This was one of the main reasons I wanted Kylee out of the game as soon as possible...she was a thorn in Chavin's side, and all she did was tear us apart which woulda made us weak at the merge.
So yeah I definitely pushed the idea of getting rid of Kylee. Also back in round 4, I knew Matty Flav would be a detriment to our side and I knew he was lying off his ass when he said that he'd stick with Chavin to the end, so I made sure he was voted out. I also figured it was a good idea we keep you and Caydie in the game and keep you guys on our side to ensure that my alliance have majority at the merge, and we woulda had a huge majority at the merge if not for the chief twist which totally threw off my game. But I still prevailed!
So yeah that's basically my strategy throughout the game, I think it was very solid which is why I deserve the win, and I hope at least some of it was a surprise? haha.
P.S. Did I ever say how much I love "Vindicated" by DC ; )? One of my favorite songs evaaa.
