adam should consider himself really lucky for after the tribes merged and word got out that he was targeting will so the milenials lose their number since they have the power more then the gen x number wise. adam wound up scrambling including thinking if he should use his idol plus another player got the right to steal the reward. as adams plans for will then fell apart when will won the first individual immunity and thus a scramble which wound up at tribal in other surprise michele and not adam got voted off instead and is also the first of the jury already as survivor brings the merge and also power plays. and adam a marked man
the merge happens on survivor and power moves made leading to melinda going instead of adam.
