I really enjoyed the episode, especially as it showcased, once again, the power of the Robfather.
I may be in the minority, but I think Rob deserves a lot of credit for winning his 4th go-round and it was not just a cakewalk for him. He made all the right moves at the right time, he came in as a HUGE target and immediately took the leadership role, got trust, eliminated any uncertain variables, and had control of the game from beginning to end. Most importantly, he was able to not be boot #2 (after boot #1, Russell) and he executed on getting not just one, but two goats, whom he knew he could beat (Natalie and Phillip) to the end with him. The argument that it was a bunch of sheep doesn't hold much water with me because often, that can make it that much harder for him to control. He was out there, making relationships with EVERYONE and being a part of EVERY conversation.
And fast forward to the present season, he's playing with some of the best, savviest, sharpest tools in the shed, and guess what? He's running the game. AGAIN. Because he's Boston Rob and Jedi Ninja Svengali is what he does best. Getting everyone to dump their bags on the spot when they all could have said "No" is just one example of that.
But to add to that, Jeremy, who wants to be the one running the game because duh, says Rob is controlling the game, Adam is calling him the Godfather, he fucked up the puzzle part of the challenge, basically costing them the win, new-school has the numbers advantage and they vote out whom again?
Oh, that's right, Danni. Which as much as it pains me to see another woman go out, she talked her way out of the game. And Amber was voted out solely because she's Rob's wife and they had a chance to take her out early.
Back to Rob, really though, he should have, at minimum, won All Stars but a bitter jury held their nose and gave it to his soon-to-be-wife Amber instead.
And yes, I'm an unabashed Rob fan and have been ever since Marquesas and his Robfather segment.
