I will vote for anyone but Daniel!
For the love of every nonexistent god you pray to, DON'T do that!

It's a plurality voting system, if you split the votes between the anyone-but-Daniels, Daniel will end up with the most votes. You need to pile the votes on one or the other to avoid this...

Anyone doesn't mean both.

Yes, but let's say the other two people are both reasonably popular, you would be expecting that they get a similar number of votes.

So say the "Anyone-But-Daniels" made up 60% of the voters and the Daniel fans made up 40%.

If the "Anyone-But-Daniels" evenly distribute their votes to try to ensure Daniel doesn't get them, what actually happens is Daniel gets 40% while the other two each get 30%. Thereby Daniel wins.

The only way to ensure this doesn't happen is to actually pile the votes on one person or the other.

It's genuinely surprising that Chad was able to win last year, because with him and his fuck buddy essentially playing as one player, you would have expected the vote to be split between them, thereby giving Dan the win. That's the exception though, not the rule.

Given Daniel 1.0 last year was pitched as the evil strategic player in the final episodes and came in a solid third place out of three despite having more going for him than Daniel 2.0 I don't think there is much of a chance that 40% of the voting fans putting their votes his way.

Also as much as people may begin to appreciate strategic play, they also don't like producer manipulation either. Daniel obviously being the producers choice will work against him, just as it did with 1.0 last year.
