Two simple ideas.
Firstly, to stop backdooring (and expose sub-alliances): The HoH nominates three
players instead of two; all players except
the HoH and the nominees compete in the PoV; the winner vetoes the nomination of their choice, leaving the regular two. There are no replacement nominations.
Secondly: It's literally impossible to get a winner in Majority Rules without the Whiteboard Of Near Enough Is Good Enough (if two people are left, it's a tie; if more are left, one is never the majority). Maybe if they changed it to Minority
Rules, it'd work better - it'd be quicker, for one; plus it opens up interesting reverse-psychology strategy dilemmas. Do you pick the answer you genuinely think is the minority answer, or do you expect everyone else to pick the minority answer (thus making it the majority answer), and pick the majority answer (which becomes the minority answer)?
