DIBS!  :lol:

 

He did not play strategy very smart last time. I hope he has upped his game.

 

He is still my McSurvivor

Analysis of Joe Anglim (original Bayon Tribe).

Following Episode 1: Joe is very likeable, and the directors/editors played up his attractiveness to the female contestants well. I do not necessarily see his personality, but of course, the cameras can only capture a certain amount of what actually happens. Much like he was in the last season, he will be targeted by those against him early and often because of his ability to win challenges. Unlike last time when he was constantly in a minority alliance, he will thrive in a majority alliance, but that still will only allow him to get to the jury and no further, as no one wants to be in a final vote against him.

Following Episode 2: Joe cannot escape the fact that he will be perceived as a physical threat in challenges. It is foolish to intentionally not try at challenges. That strategy never works. So Joe did the right thing by showing he can be a provider and calming influence at camp. I view Survivor as a three-phase game: 1) Pre-merge building the strongest tribe through comradery and winning team immunity; 2) Post-merge building the strongest alliances to navigate around the pitfalls of individual immunity and voting, and 3) Winning the hearts and minds of tribemates leading up to the final tribal council vote. Joe is by far and away the leader in the first phase, which will aid him in the third phase. Can he win the second phase without winning every immunity challenge? Joe does not impress me unless he can do this.

I think he felt he had to win every challenge last season. He knew that he was their main target. Hopefully this go around, he builds a strong mental/social game. He saw last time that being physically strong didn't garner him the win... this is the season of change and second chances. Like you, I want to see if he's able to let himself lose individual immunity challenges. I do think he's an all around amazing player though. He is very likeable. He seems like a genuinely gentle and caring person.

Analysis of Joe Anglim (Ta Keo Tribe, original Bayon)

Following Episode 3: Joe receives good fortune by becoming aligned with other physically dominant men, which hopefully will shift the focus of voting for those reasons to those other men. He will continue to exhibit the strategy that he displayed in the previous episode, whereby he curries favor through good deeds and showing his all-round skills to future jury members.

Following Episode 4: There is not much to say about Joe other than he is definitely in a great position within a strong tribe. He will not be targeted as heavily as Terry Deitz, which is even more apparent since Deitz took the lead on the reward challenge. He will have to continually maintain a numerical advantage in his sub-alliances, which he currently has but may lose when the tribes merge.

Joe Anglim (Bayon after 2nd swap, Ta Keo after 1st swap, original Bayon)

Following Episodes 5 and 6: Joe has often been described as the proverbial "Golden Boy." Naturally, he will be targeted often for that reason alone when the game reaches individual competition. As much as it would be interesting to watch him make his case to the jury, there are too many castaways who do not want to see that happen, especially if at some point he orchestrates the kind of move that Ciera did in the last episode.

Joe will never win this game.  Sorry Joe fans but the boy is competitive to a fault.  This isn't American Ninja Warrior, it's Survivor and it takes some measure of finesse to know when to go pull back and when to go full on.  He absolutely did not need to win immunity this week.  Why remind everyone you're a comp beast?  Way to make the target bigger, Joe.  Good luck winning every immunity challenge from this point on.

Following Episode 7 (the merge): While Joe is atop the dominant alliance in the game, he will need to continue to win individual immunity challenges, because the moment he loses one, he will become a target. In my estimation, Joe should not be crowned Sole Survivor unless he attends at least two tribal councils without the immunity necklace around his neck and survives those votes without any intervention. Of course, had someone else in his alliance won the immunity challenge, he probably would not have been voted out, because of the venom toward Kass. At the same time, with Fishbach waiting for his opportunity to strike, Joe will have to be very creative in maintaining his relationships with others, notably Spencer, who is a good sounding board for strategy.

Can't wait to see the back of Joe on his way out of tribal council.  Didn't like him last season and like him even less now.

Following Episode 8: Joe maintained his Golden Boy status at challenges, only making him a bigger target down the road. Joe knew this before word about Stephen Fishbach's desire to target him spread through camp. He will likely need to perform a dramatic speech at tribal council which shows other aspects of his game, yet his voting strategy has not required any depth, since he and Keith have been to tribal council least often.

Following Episode 9: Joe knows that he needs to continue winning challenges to go far in the game. His tribemates are eager to see him eliminated out of fear that he would win those last couple before the finalists are set. From my point of view, Joe does not deserve the title of Sole Survivor if he cannot prove an ability to avoid elimination at tribal council without the security of the immunity necklace. As of the most recent vote, he is all of a sudden in a minority alliance. A defining moment for him would be to lose the next challenge and then orchestrate a blindside vote.

Following Episodes 10, 11, and 12: Joe's streak of four straight immunity challenge victories came to an end, which made him vulnerable during the tribal council in which Stephen was eliminated. Nonetheless, he faced an uphill climb of surviving future tribal councils when vulnerable, since his tribemates all knew that another streak like that would make him a finalist. His candidacy for the title of Sole Survivor would be bolstered by his other qualities, such as providing at camp and his unwavering loyalty to several of the jury members, and perhaps even more so by his valiant effort in the last immunity challenge, in which extreme fatigue following a one-hour-twenty-minute battle of endurance caused him to pass out and require medical attention. It was only natural for all remaining castaways other than Keith -- Joe's longest-time ally -- to eliminate him at this point rather than see him march all the way to the title. If Keith is not a finalist, it will be interesting to see who Joe views as most deserving of the title of Sole Survivor.

That was the most pathetic scramble to save oneself I've ever seen.  Abi . . . seriously??

Following Season Finale: Perhaps Joe directed his question to Tasha since most of the other jurors were ignoring her. Coincidentally, Tasha's greatest impact during the merged tribe portion of the game, other than the elimination of Kass, was her leading the charge to eliminate Joe, which she properly cited, since bringing up her deceit toward Kass might have opened up wounds she wanted to remain closed. Nonetheless, Joe's vote (much like Stephen's) was probably already decided for Jeremy, considering how they both preferred to play the game with honor.
