My opinion only, Jeffry has cheated at least one time (writing on the pads to talk - he should've automatically been in the dual that got Jesse and Mercy eliminated), and he gave food to JR, which also to me is a violation of the rules.Jeffry has the most game strategy of the contestants. Perhaps too much because, like Russell on Survivor, he was striving so hard to get to his goal, he wasn't working on building personal relationships (with the exception of his alliance with JR) and that lack of popularity has hurt his game play.
He shouldn't win, and he honestly shouldn't even be there in my opinion. Jesse was right when he said that Jeffry shouldn't have been protected during that double elimination, and he, Mercy, and Lisette paid the price.
Samm I agree with to a point. She has also been very good at challenges, and won't make these final challenges easy for the guys to win.Lauren, Samantha and Frank swung too far the other way. They put their personal relationships over game strategy.
Frank did let his personal opinion about Jeffry get in the way, but IMHO he's for the "team" in that if he doesn't win, he wants someone from Epoch to win because he respects their gameplay to the point he wanted it to be the best man (or woman) win. That is why he chose Samm - he felt she deserved the chance and respected her gameplay and strengths. With Jeffry, there is a chance that someone who has IMHO cheated, been a complete slimy jerk and was voted least popular four or five times by us could walk away with the money.
I agree with this but the flip. Right now I still think JR may have made a $100,000 mistake taking in Jeffry.I think JR played the most balanced game, thinking strategically while at the same time building and maintaining personal relationships. For that reason, I think he's the most deserving contestant for the win. If JR doesn't win, I think Frank is next most deserving.
