How It Didn't Happen
Nothing if not cooperative with big phonies who suck up to the notion that this is a meritocracy, Jeff Probst is like, "Hey, I've heard you were willing to make relationships and then betray them!" Again, strategy of being strategic. Theories of game theory. We are staying far, far away from the dangerous "What did you actually do?" question. Not "How did you feel about what you did?," and not "What did you think ahead of time were going to be your guiding principles?," but "What did you do that made you win?" Because...I don't think Todd would know the answer to that question any better than I do. The answer is kind of "I played a solid C-plus game and almost everybody else flunked," and that doesn't make much of a reunion. Todd gives an over-rehearsed speech about how he just hoped people would appreciate that Survivor was a game, and that relationships are different from the game, blah blah. You know, the first time I heard that incredibly innovative piece of strategic thinking, I was too distracted to appreciate it, because the Flock Of Seagulls music was playing so goddamn loud.
