Rob’s game-plan reminds me of strategies used by Danielle (Big Brother) and Brian (Survivor Thailand).
Danielle had a strategy to get to F2, but had not thought about how to win the jury vote.
Brian also had a similar strategy to get to F2, but then went further by taking the most unpopular player, Clay, with him, thereby ensuring a win.
Rob also uses the same strategy aimed at getting him to F2. Since there is no convenient “Clay” around, Rob seems to be manufacturing one by making Matt more of an “outsider” than he would otherwise have been. Many of the notions that Matt is creepy seem to originate from Rob.
Danielle was done in because she was a braggart and unable to stop herself from gloating in the confessionals. I think (hope?) Rob’s personality will also be his downfall. Even if he gets to F2 – and I don’t think he will – he couldn’t win the jury vote no matter who is standing beside him.
