I've been a bad, bad girl
The problem here is that the mentality on Saboga wasn't astute enough to realize that you can use the winners to get you to the merge and then pick them off. "Queen" Jenna's mentality of keeping the winners as far away from the money as possible is flawed; anyone really thinking about advancing to the end should have had the foresight to see that once you had pairs of winners on each tribe that the winners would know they had targets on their backs and would be willing to sell their vote.
She's thinking about the non-winners as a whole versus the winners, as opposed to thinking of being the sole survivor.
If Ethan and Tina managed to sell it right to Rupert and Rudy, they probably would have been able to carry themselves at least to a final merge at 10 players, after which winners could easily be picked off, and less deserving people like Jenna would have gotten the boot early on.

It's all tactics and I don't think anything is really off limits when it comes to trying to advance yourself in the game.
As others have said, it still boggles me that Ethan, Rupert and Rudy didn't allign.
Of course, Ethan could have proposed an alliance and been turned down.
He was in the firing line so really what could he do other than agree to allign with anyone who would be willing?

That's a nice grab, but I don't remember him looking that muscular. Maybe it's true TV adds ten pounds. Dang, he looks good.

I don't envy him, but he better get smarter and more proactive about removing Jenna.

I like Ethan. He is a cutie and I hope he stays around for awhile

I think he is doing the best he can. Both he and Tina knew on the first episode that she needed to go. I think the only reason Jenna didn't go last time (aside from the fact Rudy was hurt) was that he couldn't get Rupert and Rudy to vote for her. Rudy is stubborn and sticks with alliances and Rupert sticks to his alliances, too. I am betting that Ethan will really work at getting rid of Jenna now.

Yeah, I absolutely agree, fluff! The number one Ethan fan would definitely know best. Although I met this scary obsessed Ethan fan. It was...um...creepy

Back to the kitty
LC just one placing and you get this long argument Why not make it a tie

Fine, ref guy and fluff are fellow number one fans. I'm right behind you guys. Haha.
Yes, ref guy, I would bet anything that Ethan was that desparate to stay, he tried everything. I bet he went to Rudy and Rupert to get rid of one of the girls and they wouldn't go with it. They wanted him gone. So yeah, he did what he could to stay in the game.
