WEEK 1

So coming into this game it seems that everyone is willing just to get to know everybody and worry about strategy later. I personally wouldn't mind that but at the same time you have to wonder how much of what their saying is truthful and how much is just to avoid revealing alliances. Right now I'm going to throw most of my attention towards the corporate side of things. I'm doing a degree in business now so hopefully that gives me some sort of advantage with the whole finance part of the game, but at the same time it could cause me to overthink everything and just crash and burn.

–Alex



So the first nominations have happened and the results are as good as I could have expected. On one hand we have Travis, who hasn't talked to me the entire game, and on the other hand we have Michael, who I get along with pretty well. Even without veto this could work out well if Travis gets evicted. If Michael goes though then I will have lost a friend and a potential ally.

–Alex



I don't know what to think about Dylan. I talked to him about our rivalry in the group chat and we cleared that up, and now he is comimg to me and asking me who I want to stay and who I want to ally with. Now I know there is a 99% chance that he has asked everybody else in the game the exact same thing, so I don't trust him at all. But on the off chance he is only coming to me, I want him to feel like he can trust me as well. I'd be making a deal with the devil by working with him. However that may not be the worst thing.

–Alex



This nomination really puts me in a difficult position. Either evict Perry, the threat, or Michael, the non alliance member. Both options seem just as valid. Sure Perry is a threat, but at the same time I have a partial alliance building and he is part of it. Michael on the other hand is someone I have gotten along with really well so far, but I have no loyalties to. In the end I guess it comes down to who I can make it further with.

–Alex



WEEK 2

I think I've managed to cover my tracks after voting to evict Michael last vote. I technically never told anybody who I voted for, but Michael thinks I voted for Perry, and Jordan thinks I voted for Michael. I think I'm in a good position now, I haven't made any enemies and I think I am in a good enough position to get into some alliances. It's weird, I'm getting along really well with Michael so thinking I almost evicted him last time is weird.

–Alex



WEEK 3

I'm really happy with my Fearsome Foursome alliance we've got going. I get along really well with Jordan, Tata is just the nicest person ever, and although Edward seems a bit distant, I trust him. Right now things seem to be going smoothly. I'm in an alliance, I'm still yet to be nominated and I think I get along well with everybody. If Henry went home this round then things would be working out as well as could be expected at this point.

–Alex



So the eviction is officially between Henry and Kyle and that's pretty good for me. Out of everyone left they are two of the people I'd most want to see up for eviction because ultimately it's no big deal who goes home. I'd rather see Henry go since he is just a brick wall when it comes to conversations, but at the same time Kyle has become so whiny lately, seeing him go would be a big relief.

–Alex



WEEK 4

Ughhhh, another second place finish. I am so sick of coming so close to winning these challnges but falling short one place. I swear I will win at least one more challenge before I leave here. In fact I refuse to leave before I win another challenge. I mean winning this veto really doesn't mean much, I probably wouldn't have changed anything Nifty won't, but constantly losing is really demoralising. This next challenge will be mine. I will do anything to win it.

–Alex



WEEK 5

So playing my void a vote seems to have been an extremely controversial move. I have somehow completely isolated Michael, and Nifty seemed pretty pissed as well. I mean I knew it would be a surprise, but it's not like I was breaking an alliance with anyone. I have no official to Michael or Nifty so it's hard to see them so annoyed at me. Still though, just more incentive to win this next challenge.

–Alex



I am so, so, so happy I won this Head of House. I've just been so desperate for a win recently to finally get it proved to me that I can compete in this game. After the fallout from the last round I feel extremely good having safety for this round.

–Alex



WEEK 6

As the game goes on I feel like I'm getting more and more marks against my name. First there was the rivalry with Dylan, which I can't imagine did anything good for my game. Then there was the fallout of my void a vote, and just last round I had to betray Eva and nominate her. Everything is slowly building up and sooner or later I am going to have to pay the consequences for it. And when that day comes, I'm not sure I'll make it through untouched.

–Alex



It is vital for me that Tata stays in power for this round. If she gets dethroned then there is a good chance that whoever replaces her will nominate both Tata and myself. If that happens then my only alliance is gone and I'm back to square one. I'm trying to convince Edward to stick with us but at this point it is like talking to a brick wall.

–Alex



Right now I've hit a crossroad and I'm really not sure which way to turn. Jordan is up for eviction, and that is terrible for many reasons. I want Jordan to go. He is a big threat so getting rid of him is smart. On the other hand Jordan and I have been together since day 1. He has been my closest ally this entire game and I just can't bring myself to evict him. It would almost be easier if I was up against Jordan, but at the same time, being safe is something I never take for granted. I almost hope that somebody else flips on Jordan so that I don't have to. But if Jordan goes then I am left without my biggest ally.

–Alex



I knew this was coming since the end of the last round. Eventually my luck had to stop and now it has. It's ironic, this it the best and worst situation I could be in. I mean I'm probably going home so that sucks, but if I do survive then I have the freedom to pretty much do whatever I want. I think whoever survives this will have a big target on their back for the rest of the game. And if it is me who goes then I just hope Jordan can make it through alive.

–Alex



JURY SPEECH

Hey guys. Congratulations to both of you for reaching the final two. I feel like I got to see a good portion of how you played but there is also a lot I missed, so I guess what I'm looking for tonight is you guys showing us how you made it to the end and avoided eviction. Hunter I'll start with you. We didn't really get to know each other too well this season. We did talk but I feel out of everyone you were the person I connected with the least. Now from what I've heard you did have better relationships with a few other people on the jury. What I want to know is was there any strategy behind I guess not talking with certain people as much or was it more just based on you talk to and work with who you like and anything else is just extra? Nifty, you seem to have managed to find the perfec balance between "huge threat" and nobodys target. It seems like everybody wanted you out, but they wanted somebody else to get you out. Did you do anything to actively put yourself in that position or did it just kind of happen? Because anyone who can maintain that style of play throughout the season and still reach the end is a pretty darn good player in my eyes. Alright, thanks guys. Good luck and may the best man win.

–Alex
