a prime example of this. They were both in very similar positions, both in the same alliance early on, and Shelly was less of a target than he was, but where Adam knew to lay low and let things play out, Shelly continuously overplayed her hand. In a normal season, I think she would've been exposed early on, but this season had the worst, densest bunch of players I've seen, aside from Porsche and Rachel. Of course, Adam getting fooled so long by Shelly goes against my argument here. He did have his weak points, as you say. But he got much further than Shelly because he knew that often the best move is no move and the best play is not always trying to manipulate, because it can backfire.
As a viewer, I don't like Adam's game, but it was pretty effective. I feel bad for the bashing he's going to see when he gets out, especially from the cast and past BB players. It's not deserved. This was not a season of good players, but he was one of the best ones, imo.
