What is happening is so obvious, for anyone not familiar with this season or any other. He is protecting Raven in the game, not because he is stupid, selfish or hungry. His bond with her is so strong he will do what ever it takes to avoid Raven being evicted this week. Probably what he would like to do is acquire enough penalty votes that it would be theoretically impossible for Raven to be evicted, even if everyone voted against her. I see nothing wrong with his motive. The producers probably won't let this happen and unfortunately no matter what he does his actions put a target on Raven. If they were really smart they would have distanced themselves from each other a long time ago and just met in secret occasionally. They've never read How to Win Big Brother for Dummies.
