Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Final 3 with only 7 jurors. They really were pushing for a tie during the couple years surrounding this season.

Um...yes I did. I had said that I was the latest in a long line of people who had accused you of being deliberately antagonistic in your posts, which is trollish by definition, and that if you weren't doing this on purpose, then I give you the benefit of the doubt, but to at least take a look to see how in your posts you might be doing this unintentionally.

Then Soncy tells me I'm the pot calling the kettle black, as if I myself have received criticism for the same thing. I have not. So I asked Soncy to list even one instance where this has happened.

Seriously, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DVAsmrwdtQ

Sure, but this has nothing to do with what you said to her in your last post.

She's just saying you are antagonistic and "trollish" and you are.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

No one has ever punted a tribal council as hard as Sugar did in this one. The game was (deservedly) hers and she just threw it away.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

She committed a Russell-esque error by voting out Crystal. Sugar/Susie/Crystal was the only F3 she could have won in.

Disagreeing with someone is not antagonistic and trollish. Doing it to purposefully get a reaction out of them is. I have not done this, nor have I ever been accused of it. So I'm not sure how she can claim that I have.

I didn't watch Fiji live, but IIRC from reading about it when I caught up, what Yau-Man did was technically illegal by Survivor rules. However, no one called him on it, and the deal wasn't binding, so they let it go.

No way, she was a heavy favorite going into the FTC she was in, she just answered every question as poorly as she could.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Randy and Corinne were never voting for Sugar, and I doubt Matty would have after she effectively cost him a million dollars by forcing a tie. That means she needs to get Marcus/Charlie/Ken/Crystal to win. She could have got Ken (and, by extension, Crystal) fairly easily, but Marcus/Charlie would have been difficult.

You are right about Corinne. Randy was going to tribal planning on voting Sugar. If she had sincerely apologized for laughing at him when he played the fake idol she had his vote.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

I don't understand why you guys picked the single worst season/finale ever to re-watch. The (only?) highlight is Probst repeating to Susie like 18 times, "How did you almost win?!?!?!"

You could be right. Still, keeping Crystal was a no-brainer. If Sugar were the type of player who thought rationally we wouldn't even need to be having this discussion, and she might actually have got some jury votes.

I agree. Other than FTC, voting out Crystal was her 1 mistake.

Edit: She had plenty of rational thoughts. In the finale alone she makes a lot of good game related observations.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

It's difficult to know what to say about Sugar. If a generic gamebot made all the moves she made they'd be widely lauded as one of the best players ever. Sugar seems to have stumbled into the correct moves completely by accident.

yeah, I am on the fence about this. It seems to be some mixture. She clearly isn't a gamebot mastermind, but I also don't think she's completely vacant.
