So please explain why he should deviate from what he claimed he was going to do, and split and why this makes more sense than stealing. Seems to me that he came in with an unexploitable strategy but failed to pull the trigger
First, I disagree that his strategy was "unexploitable."
Second, the clip doesn't show the 20 minutes that preceded this moment where these two guys worked together
to beat several other teams to reach this point in the show. This clip doesn't show how the two of them worked together
to build that prize money to 13,600 pounds. Together
I realize that you didn't see any of that, but when you ask "Why didn't the guy in the clip screw that guy over and keep the whole 13,600 quid for himself?", I really don't know what to say.
I guess all I can think of is that I hope my ancestors didn't climb out of a tree, harness fire, learn to speak, domesticate animals, write laws, debate philosophy, create art, build empires, harness electricity, and finally create this massive world wide web where we are currently having this conversation, so some selfish bastard could **** a guy out of 13,600 pounds for no good reason.
If we can't do any better than that, then I say we just bag this whole civilization experiment, climb back into ****ing trees and start throwing feces at each other again.
