Pretty easy and no editing needed.
Right, but it was disingenious. He obviously sets up an order of how to read them but why make it seem like the idol mattered except to trick the audience (and perhaps the contestants)? I bet most of the audience didn't pick up that the idol play had no impact.
That said, I imagine remaining contestants saw through the ruse but Will could potentially tell each side he voted with them so if anyone gets an advantage from the trickeration, it could be him.
But the downside for Will is bigger in that his "big move" got muted, compounded by the way the votes were read! Instead of making it like Adam's idol play was wasted (which it was), they made it look like Will's big move was wasted.
Reading the votes in an order for an effect is normal, but this one seemed like it was influencing or had the chance to influence the game more than normal. It was like they were trying to deceive.
Just don't recall the trickeration for other votes when an idol is played and doesn't have an impact.
Would love to see another 4 v 4 vote next week and come down to rocks (but someone would cave this time around). Just relieved that Jessica is out of the game; she had a strong sense of entitlement after David saved her to no doing of her own.
