I am in awe of Dan's gameplay! Some returning players play the same way they did before and usually that doesn't work because others know your game play style. Smart players bring a new game style. Even Rachel learned that lesson last season so I respect him for that.
Some of his actions made me cring but it's a game and it's not giving half a million to the sweetest player (Jordan Lloyd excepted of course). I am not convinced he will win but I do think Dani should be grateful. He could have sent her home the first night and her greatness and beauty are all in her head!!
