What I'm getting from most of the post show interviews confirms the obvious: The editing tells the story they want to tell. Not saying Dan isn't a douche or Shirin's not annoying, but post production definitely did not care for some of these folks. Most of these contestants spoke of how much fun they had together, how they felt like family and that all were serious players. This didn't sound fake. They were disappointed the funny, joking around moments weren't shown because there were plenty. Sierra commented that she's such an loudmouth IRL that it was interesting to be be seen as "the quiet one." Every single person has said the person playing the hardest, smartest game was Rodney. Yes, Rodney. They also talked about how funny he was and enjoyable to be around. He stated some of his antics shown were game play, but came across as him being an asshole (it was a Satellite radio interview). MIke said that had Rodney made the final three, there was a good chance that he would have won. Sure didn't get that from the show. Mike also said that he wasn't surprised Carolyn only got one vote. He didn't want to elaborate, but said it wasn't a surprise. Both he and Rodney sounded more articulate than they did on the show.
Yeah, the Merica thing drives me nuts also, but I'm a Georgian with a bunch of transplanted midwesterners living near me. I was skeptical of you guys also, but y'all (yes, y'all) grew on me slowly.
Except for the pizza. Too much sauce. NY style all day long!!!!!
