Old school is the way to play

In an exit interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dayton said she was excited to get into the game with so many old school players. However, as we saw in the show, it All stars The season is like the more recent season of the show.

Since the victory of Derrick Levasseur, there is usually only one major coalition at home and that coalition usually has a lot of people. The coalition runs as another house, even those who are not in the alliance follow suit. Most votes are unanimous because if someone does not vote from home, they will be a likely target.

There was hope from the game – because there were so many old school players – I like, cool, we can probably hit a happy medium, ”she said. “But because of the way this game has bowed, it is almost as if it is no longer respected. Like, the more you lie and manipulate, the more you are respected in that type of house. But for me, I admire the mental gymnastics of the original elder brother sport. It seems to me that some should be brought back.
