After last night's show you have to ask was Rafe faking when he couldn't climb the ladder?
He could have finally realized that Judd, Jamie, and Steph were going to the final 3 together and himself, Lydia, and Cindy were going to get at best
4th, 5th, and 6th place.
I think he woke up. He knew he had to get Lydia on board that she was never going to vote against Jamie. He made his strategic move at the right time. Now he has the upper hand over Steph and Judd.....if Lydia will stay on board with them and not jump ship.
