When they have their home visits or phone class, Blair should send for Jo to come and put Abi in her place. I might pay to see that one. :whistle :rofl
I know I'm chiming in late, but I just have to say a few words about the human-mound of unlikeability known as Abi-Maria.
First off, she's probably one of the most grating, annoying, selfish players in the history of the game. Every time she opens her mouth - EVERY time - I cringe.
The one thing we can learn from her is how the amazing power of being well-associated can get you in this game... because if not for her (now former) power alliance, she'd be long gone. I've never seen a contestant play such a stupid - and I mean STOO-PID - game and hang in this long.
Her first major error was convincing herself the RC had betrayed her. Early in the game, you need numbers. But no, Scabbi does a 180 on her strongest ally just because her unbelievable ego and sense of paranoia say they should. And no amount of words from RC (or anyone for that fact) could change that. Girl, stubborn and stupid is NOT a good mix.
Next: The merged tribe is at 9, and has a clear 5-4 split... when you're on the 5 side, and 2 of those 5 (Skupin and Lisa) are tenuous, what should you do? Treat them like royalty. You NEED these people. What does Scabbi do? Treats both with contempt and condescent, continuing the streak of making these people feel like they should praise her for still being in the game. NOT. SMART.
Seriously... what a tool this woman is. And the cherry on top of all this? She's mean about it. I'd pull my punches here if I thought for a second that, underneath it all, this was a descent, kind-hearted individual. Yeh... I don't think so.
Skupin gets all sort of new cred for flipping to the "good guys" last night. And I can't wait until Abi loses... her only chance is that she'll get to the finals because she's so ridiculously unlikeable and no one would ever vote for her. Then again, I kinda hope she does so that we can see RC level the b!$@h.
My least favorite player to date has been the dreaded (and I can't believe I'm even mentioning his name) Russell Hantz (aka Russa Hayntz), who exhibited the same kind of stubborness, meanness and ego. But at least with Russell, there was a method to his madness, flawed as it was. He thought that if you were clearly diabolical, in the end, people would respect you for it.
Abi isn't diabolical... she's just outrageously selfish. And being that self-serving allows you no in-roads to win a social game.
I'm rather enjoying Abi. At least now, when really no one left can take her seriously and therefore can't be upset by the crap she spews. RC is amazed by the TC Abi side show. Lisa has fatherly Penner for support. No one is being harmed by Abi except herself. I don't want her to have the satisfaction of making it to Final 3 (plus I don't like that every day more she stays she'llbe that much better compensated for having played the game). But meantime I savor each Abi-ism and Abi-eruption. The most amazing thing to me about her is she's 32. How did this wad of cluelessness get that far?
No question she'll lose if she makes it to Final 3, but I don't think she's safe to take there because she's too unpredictable. It's also not safe to discuss strategy in front of her. They need to lose her fairly soon.
My most disliked player ever is still Colton by a long shot, but Abi has certainly made it onto the short list!
