It's not. But the way Ryan and Abbie played the game was what caused their downfall. Then again, they just didn't get on the right side of the twins, which triggered major hate among all other teams. In real life, when there's one common enemy to take targets off yourselves... you normally join in the forces of "bullying" and go with the flow... so that no one recognizes you and you can fly under the radar. Of course, the other teams are not friendly with Ryan and Abbie as well. If you ask Nadiya/Natalie to U-TURN the Chips, they probably won't as well.
You see this a lot in Survivor as well.
