Furthermore, what's really clever and kind of lucky about the way this played out is that it's easier for Deana to quit, because Rob has already quit. It's like she has this comfort level coming from, "Well, Rob's already quit." Almost like she outlasted him. Which she obviously didn't, and the funny thing is that she is worse off because Rob quit ahead of her. That means that his penalty will be shorter than hers, and it guarantees her that she's going to be well behind at least one team, whereas if she had quit before Rob, they'd at least have been tied. See what I mean? He's making them more comfortable quitting by telling them that he didn't make it either, when in fact that makes quitting substantially more hazardous to them than if they could quit while he was still trying.
