J.T. Thomas did not make the worst strategic move in the history of the game.
For me, the worst move in the history of the game was Rafe threw the final immunity challenge to his new alliance partner, Danni, in Survivor: Guetamala. Rafe easily could have won the challenge and cinched the million dollars, but instead he decided to make a point. He wanted to show Danni that he trusted her to make the "right" decision (i.e. give him the million.) Poor Rafe still thought he was going to win until Danni turned around and voted him out, securing the million for herself.
If Rafe weren't gay, I would think it was an embarassing romantic gesture. Whoops, you don't like me as much as I like you? The violin music was in my mind? Did I really only meet you 39 days ago? In reality, it was just presumptuous, self-absorbed grandstanding.
No, Ian Rosenberger played the fool for love when he threw Survivor: Palau so Katie would forgive him for not taking her on a reward. As far as I've ever heard, Katie practically never spoke to him again; and my guess is that her brush off had something to do with his making a terrifying, guilt-inducing sacrifice for a girl who lived in a different state.
Speaking of men who swung and missed, how about Jason Siska in Micronesia? What guy falls for the line "If you give me the immunity necklace then I'll know you're sincere?"
Then, of course, there's the classic example of the girl who threw away her shot at a million dollars for one of her male tribemates. Oh wait! It's never happened! Hmmm...
