Paul is the master manipulator and he manipulates people to do his manipulating. He thinks he is just fine tuning his jury votes among these last few fools. He has used Josh this entire game to keep a protective layer in front of him. Christmas may think she is F2 with Paul, but she isn't. Josh is. Paul knows Josh would cry and say sorry to Alex thinking he is somehow smoothing things over with her for his benefit when Paul actually wants to ensure Alex's vote for himself. Not for Josh, just in case.
The same thing this week since Paul is setting Josh up to bully Kevin again. Paul even has Christmas doing most of this setting up for him now to ensure at F2, Kevin would never vote for Josh even though Kevin might hate Paul.
Christmas wouldn't even vote for Josh in the end after Paul dumps her at F3.
I don't want Paul to win either. I'm still pissed off that he is even there. I'm hoping for a miracle snafu that puts any of them at F2 other than Paul. Preferably Kevin and Josh. That would be absolutely hilarious. As long as Kevin won somehow. Although Josh had his butt worked off and he has grown up somewhat, I don't think he has really earned 500k either.
