4. Ben Driebergen
You wouldn’t think someone who overheard his own alliance planning to target him in his winning season would want to drop a hint that was in the works for someone else this season. Ben Driebergen idoled his way to the end of the game after hearing his own group plot to get him, and instead of keeping it to himself in Winners at War, Ben went straight to Tony and let him know that he wasn’t safe.
The difference between these two champions is that Tony was immune from the vote that Ben let him in on a betrayal, meaning Ben gave up an opportunity for a big threat to win Winners at War to be blindsided in order to protect the player he, himself, said was the biggest threat to win. Ben effectively played the role of Dean from Island of the Idols and tattled on a group he was part of to curry favor with the players on top.
I’m not entirely sure Ben will be voted out in either one of these two coming eliminations, but much like Jeremy, Tony doesn’t have as much of a need for him right now. At the least, I feel as though once Jeremy is no longer public enemy number one, there’s more of a drive to get out a player like Ben, who’s prone to spilling secrets. Even worse, Tony has the incentive to blindside him with an idol in his pocket.
