Morning breaks and the dawn shines through over the winter-blasted suburban wasteland and here we are, all together, bound unto the purpose that we have set forth. Here, in the dawning of the morn shall come forth a great many palpitations but remain resolute my friends, for the great prize remains ever forward.

With my oracular-like vision, I have foreseen a potential future for this night’s activities. I propose that it is likely that our challenge will come down to the casting of votes, an election for the throne. But remember this, heavy is the head that bears the crown, especially so early in the ordering of things. You might see this warning as plain manipulation, but I assure you that it is an honest and earnest warning. The bonds of amity and enmity are not yet made apparent and a misstep can lead awry of a whole host of complications, and in this space comes a great uncertainty. I do not deny that there are amongst you those who are strong enough to navigate this quagmire, though I doubt that I in particular possess this talent.

As always, the choice remains in the hands of you, my fellows and my peers, all that I may do is beseech concern, concentration, and cogitation for the choices that lie ahead.

Farewell Bags! I hope that everything works well for you!

Also, I was in the midst of managing dinner so I was late in coming up with my responses, which I will place here now for the sake of posterity.

Cat and Meinberg, you're both former winners of this game. How are you feeling coming into this game? Do you think that puts you more at an advantage or a disadvantage?

I believe that the first HoH laid it clear for all to see, both of us are seen as threats purely for the sake of our previous victories. Look upon my previous plays in these sort of games and I can assure you, I am threat to no one. I am, in the vulgar argot, very bad at games. I hope that with the unfolding of time, this will become more apparent and people will be less intimidated by reputation alone and come to understand that I am merely one amongst the many.

This game is extremely quiet. It's kinda weird. I don't know what I'll be good at here but hey maybe I'll at least have fun

Purely the calm before the storm, my friend. In time, there will be a great motion and a terrifying voice.

I feel the cruel hand of time creeping upon my body and my mind. Where once I fired with alacrity, now I've grown slow in my old age. I do not relish what the future has for me on this trend.

Hm, on the one hand, math is good. On the other hand, I'm incredibly slow.

I think I'm as ready as can be.

Meinberg, with each challenge you lament that you're having trouble keeping up with the quick pace necessary. Do you think this will put you at a disadvantage if you're not going to be as likely to win challenges going forward?

I'm not as spry as I used to be, and I was never particularly good at challenges at the first place. I reckon that sooner or later it'll become too much of a liability, and that'll be the end of me. All I can hope for is that people realize that I'm not a threat, and at least save me for the end to get rid of.

Like, seriously I'm dripping sweat over here. My hands just don't have the precision to meet the necessities of this game but I've done my best. I expect to be beaten by a factor of 10 or more.
