She's pleased me more as time goes on.
I find it surprising, but the fact that she's actually pretty soft-spoken is refreshing in a host. Caroline's perky factor always came off as a bit loud and fake. Alison has, dare I say it, a kind of quiet dignity.
And she's not "yay, you the biggest loser!" She emotes better than Caroline. I chalk that up to the fact that she's actually probably a decent actress, even if overall I don't respect the level of acting in most Soaps.
