For example in my earlier post I put forth the theory that Keith knows all along that Dave will not vote to take him out and keep Scott, however, by Keith reacting the way he did he can do 2 things. I think Keith is great and very smart and this is what he didl:
1. He acted like Dave was being disloyal and could turn on him and vote off him and Tara, thereby securing some form of trust from Scott/Holly and garnering their votes to pick the couple to knock off. Notice that he never promised that if he got the power that he would keep Scott/HOlly, just said he would take into considration Daves actions.
2. Then I predict, like most of everyone here, tonight he keeps Dave/Charla while explaining to Scott that although Dave ticked him off, he cannot make Charla pay the price for Daves actions. Thereby he sends Scott/HOlly home, and when they come back to vote on the jury, they understand why he did what he did and may actually vote for him and lobby other against Dave because of Daves actions.
If you think back, Keith allowed Dave to do a lot of the FAB4 work in getting rid of people, other than the obvious Zack vote off, which had to be done to start chipping away at the original alliance, Keith has never been in the position after that to get rid of anyone, other than picking Tara over Amy last week, and she knew he was not going to pick her, Dave on the other hand was King and booted Kristin, got the power after Casino night, got rid of Beau, etc. He put himself in a position to feel the most animosity from the returning originals. Even he started realizing that at the last Pandoras Box when he said he did not want the power. Even Amy started to realize this and laid off Keith after a while, even when the originals came back, they were not so mad at Keith as they were Dave and the girls. I hardly remember them mentioning hiim, except of cours dumbass Zack, and even when he get dumbass voted off again, I predict he will still get most of the votes tonight!!!
Yes Keith has played this game very smart and very well and I predict the if they vote tonight for an individual winner, he will get it, or if they vote for a couple, it will be him and Tara.
