5. Yau-Man Chan opening the crate.
This was, quite literally, the smartest move that happened around the original clue box that arrived on the island for the castaways.
After the Alpha Male brigade tried with no results to open the box using sheer brawn, Yau-Man simply assessed the structure, and, using just brain power, dropped the crate on its corner: the weakest point.
It took the other castaways – especially those originally on Ravu – far too long to realize that this little incident could have been a big clue to future success: muscles aren’t always the best tool for the job, and giving some power to the little smart guy might have helped them a lot more in the beginning.
