Really? I think the point is to keep the teams from ending up so unbalanced you know which team is going to win. Next week there will be five men and six women playing. Azymth (or however that’s spelled) and his two mates (Sean and Jay, is it?) will automatically be on the black team. If you did what would be the ‘fairest’ in the sense of most random, the others would pick from a bag holding 3 black and 6 red balls. And then if the two remaing men happened to pick black balls, AND a woman picked a black ball, you’d have the Black team being 6 (5 men + 1 woman) vs. 5 women. What odds on the Red team winning?
So instead (my guess) the other two men will ‘pick’ from a bag with only red balls, while the women’s bag will have 2 black and 4 red balls. Automatic result: Black team = 3 men/2 women and Red = 2 men/4 women. So the only real chance is which two women end up on Black.
I’m not sure if Azymuth is a) unable to make his own decisions or b) unwilling to make them. He’s basically allowed his mates to choose the nominees and then he just parrots the reasons the mate used. Which makes his look really foolish when the reason is nonsensical (except from the mates POV: I want her gone because she’s not on MY side.)
It looks to me like Azymuts is simple tring to fly under the radar even though he’s captain: see? I got no more money than the rest of you. See? It’s OTHERS who make the choices, I just went along.
