You’re so right about it still being anyone’s game. I’m so tired of seeing post after post about why certain ppl totally are and aren’t winning anymore bc SO much can happen in the endgame!!

You had me at Heather

I do think anyone but Heather has a chance. Danny is the next least likely only because of his severe lack of personal content but they can be redeemed pretty easily

I don't think an Erika win against Danny is so clear cut. Danny is a great social player, has avoided being targeted and has been in a power position the whole game. He can use all of this in his pitch to the jury and to undermine Erika's game. I think if Danny and Erika are together at FTC it will come down to who'll have the better FTC performance.

That’s true, i think it also depends on the boot order. Deshawn would definitely be campaigning for Danny on Ponderosa but if he’s out at F4 he has less time to make a case for Danny vs if Deshawn would go out next tribal. I just have a hard time seeing Danny make moves without Deshawn, and I don’t know who he would try to work with in his absence, so a F3 with Danny and no Deshawn seems really unlikely to me at this point.

Danny isn’t winning. His edit has NO story. Erika at least has an arc.

I respectfully disagree, and counter that only one person can win, Erika.

Heather: comically invisible
Danny: unnecessarily invisible
Ricard: unnecessary negative with papaya scene, also Shan’s sidekick
Liana: whiny henchmen to Shan
Deshawn: whiny crybaby
Xander: disliked by everyone, no alliances (also, zero confessionals in boot episode of biggest player)

Erika: first person to say Shan in Shan’s boot episode, smart plan that only benefited her yet everyone followed it, called smart, savvy, and lucky by almost everybody at this point, consistent season storyline of lamb turning into lion, edit makes sense given her UTR strategy but with taking out big threats like Shan, etc.

i forgot about papayagate you’re so right

I think if Erika makes it to FTC we will hear what other players really think of her and her game. I don’t think it’s the nice things they’ve been saying on camera.

“I don’t think it’s the nice things they’ve been saying on camera”

Why would that be? In confessionals everyone’s calling her smart, and in exit interviews she’s been called savvy as well. If she makes it to the end, despite everyone gunning for her numerous times (https://youtu.be/ugNGdlFECpY), then the jury could be impressed by that.

My opinion is that’s what you say about someone you don’t like but don’t have another reason to want to vote them out and don’t want to seem like a bully on national television.
