Dan never had a chance with this jury. Ian is an acceptable winner, but Dan played the best game. Glad that danielle didn't get anything.
Ultimately, I think Dan was the cause of his own downfall.
Nobody can control the game THIS much all by himself. Most of us think he threw the last HoH comp. If he had played to win and taken Dani, the jury would have had no choice but to give him the money or else look like complete children. But Ian was an actual competitor who could make his own points at the speeches for why he's worthy. Dan misread the jury's minds (as did Dani) and took the easy way out instead of trying to actually WIN.

I still wanted Dan to win... But if someone other than Dan had to win I am happy it was Ian....
This jury was so bitter I think they would have given to anyone other than Dan.... So thankfully Danielle wasn't sitting beside him..... How awful that would have been to see her win it.... That would have been the travesty...
This isn’t the Sound of freaking Music we’re watching.......sdl
Yeah I wouldn't think so, either.
Grodner would be more than happy to join them. She gave Frank the money, anyway.Oh well, it's 25K, he'll have spent it on partying w/ Booger and strippers by the new year
Everything I have ever said about the American public voting is true
I'm totally disappointed with the end results - both the votes and AC! I didn't mind Ian all summer but his attitude tonight really made me want him to lose. As many people have said....a bunch of bitter betty's on this jury! I didn't see Dan's first season as I was in Australia when that season started so this was my first time seeing him play BB. I am amazed at the way he can "mist" everyone....he just needed to save a little bit of that mist for the jury, though I don't think anything would have worked on this group of sore losers. Wil said it best....don't hate that he lied, you have to take responsibility that you believed him! Oh well...I've been lurking here all season. I don't have the feeds but read the forums everyday. Thanks so much to EVERYONE for keeping me "in the know"! I have enjoyed all the posts, comments and screencaps. The show was fun, until tonight. The FoRT - fun EVERYDAY!!! I'll be reading Survivor and Amazing Race too - hope to see y'all there as well. Maybe I'll even join in sometimes!
Well, I'm with Janelle. Total travesty that Dan didn't win. Without him, this season would've been a snoozefest. Oh well.
My favorite part was catching Julie Chen telling Dan he's the "greatest player to ever play this game" at the end just before the credits began. At least they know who should've won...
