But isn't Dan only being greedy if he wins the money, and holds on to all of it himself? If he wins it, and gives away half of it to charities, then isn't he abiding by some of the messages in his bible?
I really think that Dan deserves to win this game. I know people will say that he has already won once but hey, he is still there so good on him!! I don't necessarily believe that what is portrayed in the house is an absolute reflection of who they are outside the house. Dan manipulate and lies in the game, but I think no less of who he may be outside of the house. It's a game with a goal..to stay in as long as possible. He is doing just that. Others are letting him. He motivates, he manipulates, he makes deal, he sometimes goes back on them, he's social, friendly, keeps quiet and to himself when he feels the need and keeps his emotoins in check. He's the master!
I imagine that crosses over to football -- different kids have different minds and temperaments, so he has to size each one up and deal with each of them in a way that will produce results on the field from all of them.
It's none of my business what he does with the money, just like it would be nobody's business what I did with the money if I won it. I don't feel the need (nor place) to judge him, even though I wasn't as entertained by him and his overkill-style playing this time around. Ultimately I want Ian to win, but Dan has certainly made this season more interesting.

Dan plays this game so well. I hope he wins. Afterall... Nobody went into the house to lose!!!
More of what Dan said to Danielle after he evicted Shane... Dan said, "I'm trying to get you to the money. I came here for one reason: to coach someone to half a million dollars." Danielle said, "I should have known. I should have known." (Dan is grinning). ... Danielle said to Dan, "You can tell a lie amazingly. It's almost a gift." Dan said, "It's not a very good gift to have." Danielle said, (about Dan's lying), "You've got it to an art." Dan said, "I'm not proud of it." But, while he was telling Danielle his ability to easily lie wasn't a good gift, and that he wasn't proud of it... he looked pleased with himself. I think Dan IS proud of his ability to lie.
