  1. For the record, Daran Norris is primarily a voice actor. The show eventually (I think in season 3?) acknowledges this fact by setting up a fake casting call for such a thing. You almost only ever actually see him on Rob Thomas properties (Cliff and Johnny Frost)
  2. The difference is Troy is an asshole so he was bitter that Kim kicked his ass. Parvati spent too much time mocking her opponents and created bitter jurors.
  3. Best thing about this season might be one of the Rob's (I think it was Mariano, might have been Cesternino) described their tribe as the "buffoon tribe" and then they won like every challenge.
  4. I would not do it, because it is horrible.
  5. It was Cirie's plan to vote out Ozzy, sparked by Eliza revealing who had the idol and the deal with Jason at the immunity challenge. Parvati did take a risk by joining in and deserves credit for that. Not sure how big of one it was because she was pretty well positioned either way, but it was a risk. That episode is actually the funniest one of that very, very funny post-merge. I think it's also the episode where Erik meditates on boobs on the island of Yap? That might be later in the season I don't remember exactly when that amazing bit of comedy happens. It's really too bad the pre-mer
  6. Adam is a slightly smarter Todd in that he talks about strategy more than he actually has a strategy. But he didn't do a bunch of obviously self-destructive things where he had to be bailed out.
  7. Between Cirie's likeability, her obvious brilliance in the game, and her life situation she walks away with that easily. It would feel better to give her the money than Parvati and that;s often a big factor.
  8. Amanda will only be effective when everyone else is a complete moron, like China.
  9. Cirie split the votes the season before, for an even more clever reason (to boot the goat). And you should watch the post-merge of One World because it's the best game anyone has ever played.
  10. Micronesia's pre-merge disqualifies it. The post-merge is amazing, with hilarious nonsense going on literally every episode. But before that you've got the very dumb fans doing very dumb things, the most poorly designed challenge ever taking out Penner, Yau getting caught in the crossfire of an extremely stupid fight between Penner and Cirie, more dumb fans doing dumb things, two quits, and Eliza kicking ass and taking names in challenges. Only one of those things is actually fun to watch. I took Cook Islands. Has a premise that causes you to look at it askance, works out pretty well,
  11. James was always a jerk. Especially towards women, but also just in general.
  12. Difference is even if you know the algorithm for solving slide puzzles there's some chance for someone else to beat you based on better manual dexterity. In a Nim game, there's literally no chance.
  13. Though if you're asking for best players ever, I actually jump Natalie White a few spots and insert a bunch of non-winners (Cirie and Cesternino first and foremost) ahead of everyone below Denise. Natalie just couldn't play a proactive game with the crazy person she was playing against.
  14. I like putting things in tiers to clarify things for myself, so I'd do something like (and I've ranked these within the tiers): Two Time Winner Sandra, in a class by herself Dominant Games (Solo) Kim, Brian, Rob Dominant Games (With a Partner...They Didn't Necessarily Need) Yul (Becky strategically, Ozzy physically), Earl (Yau-Man), Parvati (Cirie), Denise (Malcolm), Dominant Games (With a Partner...They Probably Needed) Amber (Rob), Tom (Ian), JT (Stephen) Solid Wins (Pre-BIG MOVES) Richard, Natalie White, Chris, Sophie, Vecepia, Tina, Danni,
