Good to know - I just thought it a bit odd. (Sadly I can't play the Ponderosa vids - they mess up my computer).Originally Posted by CrossingGuard;4119125;
Vee didn't do much yet she won the whole game. I didn't see NaOnka do a lot, and yet she could've won too, but even getting to the final two would be a similar comparison - neither really earned it IMHO.I'm curious here--why do you compare NaOnka to Vee? Vee was never an awful bitch out in Marquesas. She was more of the under-the-radar type of player. If anything, that's what people complained most about her. I can't remember a time when she was awful to anyone like NaOnka has been.
But no, I'd rather even have another Vee over NaOnka. (I still think Vee is the worst winner, and Neleh lost only because of sour grapes).
No it isn't - especially since most of the days have a food win day. Have they even done an auction yet?Great point, jadewarlock.
While I still take the on the fence approach, I think the worst part about the double quit is that it happened so late in the game. Eleven more days is not that much compared to the grand scheme of things.
Ian I'm on the fence here - he did in essence quit, but he also upheld his promise. I wish however Jeff and them let him have a day to think it over (if there was time - or at least order him to have a couple of hours to think about it from being tired), so he could've reconsidered. That said, it'd been interesting to see who would've won had it been Tom and Ian - I still think Tom'd won, but Ian should've had the $100,000.I would include Ian on the list. Other people argue that he didn't quit, but I'd say volunteering to give Tom the win in the final IC and asking him to take Katie to the F2 constitutes as a quit.
Ah... that was a season I only saw the last episode with Ian leaving. I do appreciate the clarification here.There's also Jeff, Ashlee, and Kim from that season. Jeff asked everyone to vote for him after he hurt his ankle on a coconut. I don't know about the latter two though. The elimination episodes didn't show them asking everyone to quit, IIRC. But there have been reports (internet forums, the commentary on the season DVD, etc.) that they both asked to leave.
That I blame CBS for casting her, not really Melissa herself. To be fair, that was tantamount to a medical evac. I think the same would've happened to Kathy had she chosen to not quit - she was already showing signs of severe issues on the island.There's also Melissa McNulty, who was the 20th cast memeber of Fiji but pulled out last minute because of a nervous breakdown. She was the one that caused Fiji to have an odd number of castaways.
