Analysis of Tasha Fox (original Bayon Tribe).

Following Episode 1: As much as I like Tasha for her personality and temperament, I feel that she might be at the bottom of any alliance she is in. The only way she can escape this label is if she orchestrates a blindside vote that strikes fear in anyone who might target her as expendable (based upon how there are already many other seemingly nice and smart castaways). I will root for her, but absent any further proof, I suspect she might be a victim of numbers in the early going.

Following Episode 2: I would like to see Tasha go deep into the game, because she does have a lot to offer the viewing audience. However, I am unsure how she can stand out among the strong female personalities on her current tribe. She would probably benefit a great deal by joining a new tribe with several of the woman on the other tribe, as she would stand out much more prominently in a positive way and yet avoid becoming a target.

I think she showed tonight that she is playing a different game this go around.. in that she's actually playing and not afraid to get dirty. I was impressed/surprised that she was ballsy enough to call Jeff a rat in front of everyone. It's because of her, that she and Terry both survived the vote tonight. Good on her!

Wasn't she the really religious one? Glad she is playing for herself and keeping religion out of the game this time.

Analysis of Tasha Fox (Angkor Tribe, original Bayon)

Following Episode 3: Tasha was quite impressive in stirring the pot after the immunity challenge and then seizing upon the paranoia it created at camp. This was her episode to shine, and I look forward to seeing her continue to stir the pot. I imagine that she can work with several of the remaining original Ta Keo to create a majority alliance after the merge, provided that her current tribe can avoid too many immunity challenges before the merge into one tribe.

Following Episode 4: Tasha's leadership and willingness to patiently work with her tribemates continues to impress me. She has proper mentality at this stage of the competition -- to keep the tribe mentally and physically strong and to work with everyone, rather than create and exploit fractures due to personal differences. She is wisely collecting information on relationships among other original Ta Keo members, which further persuades me to suspect that the 10 original Bayon members could all be in the final 10.

Tasha Fox (Bayon after 2nd swap, Angkor after 1st swap, original Bayon)

Following Episodes 5 and 6: Tasha has been calm, cool, and collected throughout the season, which will get her as far as she wants to go in the game. As some point, the intensity that others bring to her might distract her from making the right move. For now, much like Jeremy, she appears to have built good relationships with everyone and can ride that for a while until number require her to do some underhanded scheming. The only question is whether she will have the stomach for it at that point.

Tasha Fox (original Bayon, Angkor after 1st swap, Bayon after 2nd swap)

Following Episode 7 (the merge): Tasha turned the tables on Kass in a very Kass-like manner. Her cunning was on full display in this episode, as she set a trap for Kass and managed to stay above the fray. Her only vulnerability lies in Abi-Maria, who is not well-regarded by the castaways. She will need to continue walking this tightrope, as Ciera is certainly capable of setting a similar trap against her. As much as Ciera's stock fell, Tasha's stock rose, but she cannot stand still, as was discussed at tribal council.

Following Episode 8: Tasha had been a major power-broker this season until taking a massive blow by losing her closest ally Andrew Savage at the most recent tribal council. Tasha has made several enemies on the eventual jury, so it seems unlikely that she can win the title of Sole Survivor, since anyone who might still favor her now would not feel that way if she eliminates them. She more than anyone needs to stay the course by eliminating the triumvirate of Ciera, Wentworth, and Abi-Maria, since their votes along with Kass' are already lost votes at the final tribal council. Then, as long as she plays fairly with everyone else (i.e. no more manufactured lies and denials of them at tribal council), she stands a chance to win a majority at the end. Taking the unlikeable Abi-Maria to the end would insult her alliance, one or two of whom she would directly vote out. Tasha has faced long odds already this season and overcame them. One wonders if she can do it again. With so many smart players left, it seems unlikely.

Following Episode 9: Tasha was quite hypocritical at tribal council about expressing how the strongest voting blocks will make it to the end, since her and Andrew Savage's ability to break apart the perceived voting block at the short-lived Angkor tribe is the only reason why she is at this point in the game. If Tasha somehow manages to become a finalist, her past lies toward Cass and hypocritical statements like these will be used against her. At this stage in time, there are very few castaways whom she could defeat in a final jury vote, and one of those few, Abi-Maria, can make the case that Tasha would have been eliminated a long time ago if not her actions. Tasha will have to earn good will among her remaining tribemates through sharing a reward with them.

Following Episodes 10, 11, and 12: Tasha has been very likeable and loyal to many of the other jurors and potential jurors. She has shown a willingness to adapt to changes that may not have gone in her favor. She faces a similar plight as Spencer in that, if she should reach the finals, she would have to be very persuasive in showing how she was involved in deliberating on the decisions rather than being a mere pawn. However, she drew the ire of Kass and Ciera (and by extension Kelley Wentworth and Abi-Maria) when she perpetrated a ruse before the vote which eliminated Kass.

Following Episode 13: Tasha had a terrifying moment during the immunity challenge. Thankfully she was rescued and then recovered from being distressed and possibly beginning to drown. As much as she feels she has been a key player, her only power move was early in the merge state when she played a ruse on Kass and Ciera. She cannot make a case for Sole Survivor against Jeremy both in terms of strategizing (as she was left out of pivotal decisions, particular Kelly Wiglesworth) and loyalty (as she will not receive votes from Kass, Ciera, Abi-Maria, Kelley Wentworth, Stephen, and possibly Joe). Her only chance of winning is if her final two opponents are Keith and Kimmi, but she would have to betray Jeremy, Spencer, or both to achieve that, which might cause her to lose their jury votes.

Following Season Finale: Tasha proved herself to be a strategic player through the season and made that case to the jury. However, like Spencer, anything she could have said was not going to create a more favorable perception of her over Jeremy, as whatever loyalty she could have shown toward Jeremy was equaled or exceeded by him toward her. I was disappointed that Kass did not shred Tasha over the ruse that Tasha played on Kass in front of the tribe, leading to the bloc of Kass, Ciera, and Abi-Maria (and later Kelley Wentworth) being thrust into a minority. Tasha was probably most responsible in helping Jeremy reach the end during the merged tribe portion of the game, but that is a second-place argument. Her response to Abi-Maria's question about subtle moves was perhaps most interesting of all responses given at the final tribal council, as she explained how her and Spencer had very quietly rekindled their alliance from their previous season on Cagayan and was probably even stronger than the alliance between her and Jeremy, which most of the jury mistakenly perceived to be the strongest alliance within the three finalists.
