21. I have a thought
First, it turns out that Grant apparently got upset when he found out Rob was playing hiding the HII clues.

I think the difference between Grant and Rob goes beyond the game. Grant knows it's a game, because he voted for Rob.

I think, to Rob, it's about The Show. From the moment he hit the beach (even before, see below), he was no longer Rob Mariano, family man. He became Boston Rob, Survivor royalty. He knew exactly what soundbites to give to make his confessionals air (and to tell the plot of the show, an important thing most forget to do).

To Grant, the confessionals were a time to step away from the game and unburden himself, so when he saw Rob still playing in confessionals, he started to doubt that he ever knew Rob as a person at all.

As for when Rob started to play the game, apparently he and Russell had a loose alliance going in (that Rob may or may not have honoured). Also, in a pregame interview with the two of them, Rob was constantly puffing Russhole up as a great player, when he really doesn't think he is at all. He was setting Russ up to fail.

Let us not forget that Rob has a psychology degree.
