Peeta is smart

He doesn't want them to change him. Refuses to allow the rules of the game to dehumanize him.

And Katniss: "That is great. I just can't afford to think like that."

She's got to win the game for her little sister. She's serious and focused. And she gets a lot of help from where she least expects it - Rue, Peeta and other random twists of fate.

He's the man.
