It's so Interesting how human quickly form packs with a leader, but unlike the cavemen of 200 thousand years ago, or their barely improved human in the Ice Age, man as a social creature IS very interesting and OFTEN predictable in how they formulate situations and quickly form a plan.
Whether Survivor, Big Brother, Solitaire 2.0/3.0 ( I wonder how long a season takes to play - I bet 7 to 10 days to film Solitaire) and Colony, any show where we must make order out of chaos) we rarely pick the best person for the leader role though. Most any reality show develops new powerful and true leaders that take over the position WITHOUT much fight. Very civilized rather than primal.
Got to admit, I enjoy it, that is why I have a dedicated computer whos monitor is right her next to my chair with 24 hour 4 cam view of Big Brother 12 House, it is week 3 of 11. Well worth the $39 I paid. You have to use 3rd party software to have the best interface. I love having the whole screen covered with the 4 cams, I just switch which audio I want to listen to - or listen to as many or as few as I wish.
This is a VERY different season - Showmances, as romances formed on the show have usually been ripped to pieces early, but not just one but two showmance are taking place and one couple have some magic spell on the house, using the term WE and literally sitting like the God Father hearing their pleas. Weird and so interesting, you can see how Empires were born. In small groups COUPLES who are leader personalities are very powerful, even great cities have been ruled by couples. Yep... Interesting year.
