Here's my armchair analysis:Originally Posted by Krom;3892482;
Curtis: I just think he's polite and genuine. On TV, that can come off as odd. In other words, a normal guy in a world that isn't normal (aka a fish out of water).
Sharon: She's just an unnecessarily cruel human being. It's not fun or funny. Take that + her potty humor away and she doesn't have a single interesting thing to say. Horrible person. I get tired of hearing her talk...what a downer.
Cyndi vs. Holly/Summer: Cyndi has to understand and respect the fact that Holly/Summer aren't obligated to bow down to her and give up their own opinions. Holly/Summer have to respect the fact that Cyndi is an exceptionally accomplished artist who may have a thing or two to say about certain tasks. Neither side gave enough in these ways to build a successful relationship. I think both are equally at fault.
Maria is the female version of Brett: I think both are very creative and think with that side of their brains (left side, right??). I like her to the extent that I like Brett. Both are fun, energetic, and creative. I didn't like what she said to Curtis tonight, though. It was pretty childish and rude. She's sort of a "baby" for lack of a better word (wheras Sharon is just plain mean and cynical).
Holly: Holly started out as a real nag, but the one thing I like about her (thus far anyway) is that she seems to be growing - i.e. learning how to interact with people better. This is in contrast to whiny Cyndi, nasty Sharon, and stupid Maria - all of whom haven't seemed to learn a single thing throughout this process.
Plus, I think that out of all of them, Holly, Summer, and Brett are/were the only ones playing with passion for the supposed purpose of the show, i.e. money for their charities. For these reasons, I am now hoping for a Holly or Brett victory. The one thing about Brett that is sort of annoying (because I am jealous) is that he is the kind of guy who success just follows. With an endearing personality and "free" spirit, it's impossible not to like and support him. For people like Holly, i.e. those who only know how to play by the rules, it's not as easy. I can relate to Holly because that is how I was raised. I would LOVE to go through life with Brett's attitude, but it's just not me. In this way, I empathize more with Holly and kind of hope that she wins for this reason. I tend to think Brett will take it, though. He really hasn't raised much money thus far, but I think he's held on to his chips as long as possible so he can cash them in in a big way at the end.
I'd love to see more of Curtis, but I don't think he'll make it past next week. The dislike by Sharon and Maria is too great. And, I doubt he has the connections needed to earn big piles of money needed for a really successful finale.
