My thoughts after last week!
I think the villains will lose all challenges until the merge. Their numbers benefit the Heroes team.
The heroes have 3 guys (Rupert, Colby and JT) and 2 women (Amanda and Candace) vs 2 guys (Russell and Coach) and 5 women (Parvati, Sandra, Courtney, Jerri and Danielle). There is no way the villains can compete and the next 2 or 3 challenges go to the Heroes by default. The villains voted out all of their best players and now suck as far as I’m concerned going into the next challenges.
Russell rules and I also believe Coach goes next, further making the villains non-competitive. Russell has his alliances but they are all women. He needs the merge so he can regain some advantage, or of course it’s HII time for King Troll.
