But Kelly G played the game really well also. But the producers had to have at least one person from each season, so they asked back Shii Ann (btw, did anyone notice that the Top6 of All-Stars was composed of every season minus Amazon?). I would have gone with Tanya () or Helen before Shii Ann. Or maybe even Brian, since he played the game so well. Or maybe even Ghandia, since she was one of the earliest drama queens of reality TV.Originally Posted by Trista;3594271;
Tina wasn't kumbaya at all. Her game is really underrated. She played Colby like a fiddle. The rumor is that she was the brain behind all of the vote-outs. If that's true, then no one--neither the players nor the audience--knew it. She didn't really ride Colby's coattails because she did just as much as Colby. And the fact that Colby was stupid enough to bring Tina to the finals says a lot about Tina's game.Originally Posted by karalott;3594243;
And I really don't think Tom's social game was all that. His physical game was the best, but he never did much socially. He didn't really have a chance to play the game though with Koror's dominance, but post-merge, the only substantial move of his that I can think of was teaming with Caryn/Ian to vote off Gregg.
All of the pre-AS winners were deserving. They all played the game. Well, maybe not Ethan, but he managed to stay likable enough to almost all of the jury members, which I consider a feat.
But now recent winners have sucked. Take Bob for example. He never did anything. Amazing physical game, but he only won because of the Onions' bitterness. But I prefer him over Matty, who would have won if he had made it into the F3 over Bob. But like I said, Bob didn't do anything noteworthy. Sure, he made those fake idols, but what was he going to do with them? He was going to keep the first one and try to fool the others into thinking he had the idol. What kind of a plan is that? That only put a target on his back. It was Sugar who was the best gameplayer of Gabon, aside from maybe Kenny. Too bad she played for other people instead of herself.
