EIGRP DUAL Process selecting feasible successor

Last Modified: 2012-06-27

Can anyone explain to me in eigrp. When a route to a network goes down. Dual searches the topology table for feasible successor.
Why does it not just go to next lowest feasible distance in its topology table. Why does it go through the process of  looking for a route in table with reported distance lower than its current feasible distance ( route  that is gone down)??
