You really think these morons have "examined" all 24 seasons? Cochran may have. Sure did him a lot of good.
Look at the 21st season in Nicaragua. How do you think grouchy 56 year old
Jane managed to make it to 6th place? By putting away her grouchiness and making herself useful with the youngsters. How do you think 63 year old
Dan manged to make it to 5th place? He hung out with the younger guys and told great stories (which were edited out). How do you think 67 year old Coach Jimmy Johnson got voted off? By being a bossy coach and giving up on his tribe when they were losing. What Rudy said is true then and is true today. If you do your best to fit in with your tribe and help identify other threats, you can be in your 70's get far in the game.
Her Alliance stuck with itself .. had nothing to do with being blond and dumb .. Survivor 101 .. and with your continued need to post your history of the game, I'm surprised .. He/She that stays true to the Alliance has a better chance of advancing ..
It had everything to do with being blond and dumb. She's not a threat so when she blows another challenge everyone knows she's the next to go. I'm sure they didn't keep her just because she's the youngest member on their tribe.
Surely you can remember many cases of alliance betrayal that worked in the traitor's favor back when Survivor was a fun show (Twila's fake alliance with the men put her in the FTC). You stay true to your alliance until something better comes up. Since recent players rarely do anything until they're at the bottom of their alliance and they lose a challenge (unthinkable!), that rarely happens now. The game is the same, the players are different.
As for my need to post history, you brought up Rudy!
