It's interesting. As many of you know, I expected A-Rob to do a lot better than he did. He seemed off his game this entire round, almost as if, denied the opportunity to play the big-dumb-kid routine that he worked in the Amazon, he wasn't quite sure what to do. Moreover, he fell in with a tribe of people who don't really cotton to laziness, unlike last time, when he was able to settle in with people who were just as into lying around as he was. He failed to adjust to the dynamic, and that surprised me. He just didn't seem to play as well this time, and he never found a way to convince B-Rob that an alliance with A-Rob was a good idea. But of course, he was also working with the disadvantage that everybody knows now how slippery he is. The person a guy like B-Rob is going to want to get rid of first is the person he can't predict, and he knows he can't predict A-Rob's behavior, so I'm not surprised that was the boot.
In his exit interview, A-Rob says he never really got to get into the game, and he feels that he was "targeted unfairly." Which...you know, there's no such thing as that, but whatever. As people often do, he says he's going to take his ouster as a sign of respect. Which it probably sort of is, but still. Adios, A-Rob. Sometimes, a good reputation is a curse.
Next week: The Rupert Show focuses on raft-building. Big Tom does a little drinking. There is a twist. In other words? Second verse, same as the first. A little bit hungrier and a little bit worse.
