Survivor: Gabon

I figured since I had a spare moment that I would toss out my opinions about the latest since of Survivor.

The season wrapped up on Sunday and, despite the person not winning who most deserved to win, I feel the season was a pretty nice success.

It was definitely not the best of the bunch, but it certainly was not the worst.

Anyway, the finale came down to Bob, Susie and Sugar - and Bob Crowley was crowned the winner with a 4-3 vote over Susie.

Congratulations, Bob.

Anyway, here are a few rants of mine - the first beginning with the final vote.

Susie was a parasite on this game. She did absolutely nothing the entire time she was there (except apparently talk), but lucked out on two immunity challenges, including the final one, and made it into the finals.

OK, so what? There usually is at least one person who slides under the radar and makes it far into the game - thanks to their alliances with others. My issue was that SHE GOT THREE VOTES.

This season's jury was horrible. Each and every one of them held a grudge of some sort, and because of that the most deserving of the final three, Sugar, did not receive a vote.

In season's past, the jury would obviously be upset by someone getting them kicked out of the game, but would vote for that person because it was a strategic move, and they played the best game. This group, however, just couldn't let their own insecurities go.

Sugar deserved to win, and she was left with third. Out of everyone, however, Kenny may have been the best player in the game, but he started thinking too much and that led to his downfall.

Finally, I just have to say that it was so nice of Survivor to get two of the bitchiest people on the planet on the exact same show. Say what you want about Randy, he was an ass. But, he never really attacked anybody - and some of his antics were sort of funny.

Enter Corinne Kaplan, she can now be crowned the meanest Survivor ever.

Congratulations, Corinne.

Her attack about Sugar's deceased father was well past the line - and even with a chance to recind her comment at the finale, she didn't do it. She was booed, and she loved it. I don't know how a person can be such a crab at all times.

So, the season is over and we say goodbye to these contestants. Some I will miss, others I will not, and still others I was wondering who they were at the finale - way to make an impression.

Hopefully a handful may make it to another All-Star edition.

Until then, adios Gabon.
