Why did many teams chose the smaller teammate in the caviar challenge?
It seems counter-intuitive to me that any team would choose its smallest team member for the eating contest. Barring food allergies and funky metabolism rates, it would seem logical that the person who uses up more calories just sitting there would be the better choice for a bulk food challenge. The first two teams put their smallest members in, and they got spanked by Chip and Kim, who put their largest team member at the table. I'm not trying to take anything away from Chip by pointing this out - he was a fish-egg-eatin' machine - but I don't think that any of the teams who put the smaller member in actually improved their relative positions in the race.
Any insights, anyone?
