    Biggest "strategic" blunderer in Competitive Reality Show history?

    Previously I would have given Big Brother's Marcellus this award, but now I'm switching to Rafe. Why? While the mistakes are of the same magnitude, Rafe was futher in the game.

    Please feel free to nominate anyone else you feel appropriate--from the Survivor franchise, or in fact ANY competitive reality show.

    Rafe was being Rafe. I didn't find it stupid strategy(sorry, can't spell it) just him being himself. Also no person knew if she would take Rafe anyways.

    On her red carpet interview Danni said even she wasn't sure. She said that Rafe was slippery about his F2 alliance promise to her--that she said she'd absolutely do it, but apparently he hedged. On the show I believe we only saw him talking about the aftermath of their talk in an interview, (we didn't SEE his part of the promise) so who knows?

    I completely see it being stupid strategy on his part, as evidenced by his pissy reaction when it backfired on him. Rafe was going for the "nice guy" routine when he let Danni out of her promise only because he fully expected her to still pick him. Then when she didn't, he got all pissy and threw his vote Steph's way out of spite.

    I'd say Ian's blunder last year was dumb....but at least he was doing it out of some stupid sense of friendship/loyalty even though it has no very little place in this game. Rafe's was strategy and was therefore worse, IMO.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    Hmm. I have this dream. I'm driving a bus. And my teeth start falling out. My mum is in the back. Eating biscuits. Everything smells of bacon. It's weird. 'Course then I wake up screaming.

    I have to agree that I don't think Rafe's blunder was strategic. Like Ian last season it was just him being him. Not him playing some strategy. I think Steph's backstabbing Jaimie and Judd were far bigger blunders this season.

    And of course, Howie from BB is still the reigning reality show moron.
