    Re: 12/16/12 Season Finale Show Discussion

    I was only able to watch up until Malcolm's ouster last night, so finally watched the FTC and reunion, etc, tonight. I was satisfied with the end, I guess. I found myself still rooting for Denise and liked the fact that she owned her gameplay and basically told them all "I outlasted all of you, so there" - and it worked. They voted for her. I was kind of surprised at Penner calling her a b**** - that seemed unnecessary and uncalled for, but then again his whole FTC speech was kind of disjointed and rambling. Artis surprised me too, at how bitter he was. I didn't really get that sense from him before that. Malcolm too, surprised me but then again he was the most recent vote off and came so close, he was really disappointed and angry. I get that. It was easier perhaps for people like RC and Jeff K to be more gracious, they had more time to get used to the idea of not being in the end.

    Abi, of course, made it all about herself

    I really found myself enjoying Lisa's comments at the reunion, about religion, about herself, etc. I had my issues with her storyline throughout the show but I really think she was sincere, and watching her reunion again with her brother, you can see the genuine emotion, and while it was uncomfortable to watch in some respects, it was also fascinating because you didn't see anything other than sincerity. So while I was hoping Malcolm would take the fan fave prize, I was also happy she won it. I thought Penner outing her was really kind of funny and crappy and perfect and mean all at the same time. Trust Penner to achieve that.

    All in all a good season, and the big smooch on Jeff P at the reunion had my girls and I howling. It was fun, and even more fun because there was (that I noticed) no Russell in the audience for Jeff P to talk to.

    Well done, show! I enjoyed it all. And grungy or cleaned up, Malcolm is so

    Oh no! I love having former cast members come back but if Coach, Russell or Rupert are on I'm going to be pissed. There have been 25 seasons with what 16-18 people per season. They have so many people to choose from and they bring back the same people over and over? I know Jeff said that Johnny Fairplay would never be on the show again after he quit the last time he was on. I hope they just showed a random collage of castmembers and not the people who will be on next season

    Those people aren't the ones who I heard would be returning. I can't imagine they would have any of them back, as many times as they've already returned.

    I'd advise waiting until the cast is officially revealed before freaking out and deciding you won't be watching this next season.

    Well, I guess you could call some of those "favorites"... others I 'd be more likely to call weird...interesting in their weirdness occasionally, but not what I'd call a favorite. I guess they have to go with whom they can get. People who have "lives" with regular jobs, such as being a lawyer, can't take off for so long.

    Penner called her a bitch because of the way she presented herself at TC and telling them that she outwitted, outplayed and outlasted them that's why they are sitting there and she's in the Final 3. She was sticking it to them. In all fairness though, she was right.

    I rolled my eyes when he said that though, because I wonder if he would use the same word or something similar if a man were to make that same statement. Or would he have applauded it? What should she have done, pulled an Amanda and apologized all over herself for daring to vote out the big strong guys? NOT.

    I don't like to think of Penner as that kind of player, and he did vote for Denise and said she played a near perfect game while doing so. I just hate it when a strong woman is called a b**** for being strong.

    Enjoyed it and can't say Denise wasn't deserving, but I was somehow upset that she won. Would have preferred either Lisa or Skupin.

    To a couple of those I have to ask, are you freakin' kidding me? What sort of lunatic are they favourites of?

    Seriously, Rattus! More like the favorites we were thrilled to see voted off! I'd have a totally different list of favorites.
