I think I started it. There wasn’t really any rationale behind it beyond getting people into the game who weren’t going to have a chance of leading for a while.
Well you don’t, but that’s true of everyone and perhaps it’s better to have a team with 2 people whose allegiance you don’t know than one with 3.
I guess the only information we have is that these teams haven’t been too popular so perhaps they’re good. It’s pretty tenuous though.
