"Survivor: San Juan Del Sur" has been losing a lot of its biggest personalities and most aggressive strategic players in recent weeks.
No, I'm probably not talking about Wes, but in Josh and Jeremy, the season lost its two biggest ringleaders and this week the game lost Reed, whose was forced to scramble in Josh's absence and was, if nothing else, trying very hard to move the pieces around the chessboard.
That's the thing with the recent eliminations. Were Josh and Jeremy and Reed the best "Survivor: San Juan Del Sur" players? Apparently not, but all three seemed to know what they were doing out there, which can't be said for many of the castaways still in the game.
That makes it a little bittersweet to talk to players as affable and into the game as those three. In his exit interview, Reed talks about Keith's "Just stick to the plan" blunder and explains where his game might have gone if Jon hadn't played his Idol. He also talks about the challenges of playing relationship counselor to the game's swing couple.
Reed also gives context for both how hard he was pushing Keith at that ill-fated Tribal and he gives context for his reference to not needing to win this past week's pony-ride reward because he has horses at home. And he admits that comment sounded bad.
