Bananas is a cocky sonofabitch but he can back it up with a long history of wins, many of which he earned through strength, determination, and endurance. I don't think he's a bad guy at heart although he has a quick-trigger mouth that has often cast him in a poor light (in an episode of Free Agents I watched the other night he said to Jordan "You'll be missing more than a hand if you go up against me"). His early appearances were also marked by many unfortunate misogynistic moments. Like CT, I think Bananas has grown a lot. I also think he shows good sportsmanship when he loses. I thought I couldn't like him anymore after the conclusion of Rivals III, but there's something about him that I find appealing despite his flaws. For a long time I despised Devin, which came to a peak several seasons back when he brought his inability to deal with his father's death into the Challenge. He took a season or two off after that and seemed to return as a more mellow fellow. More self-deprecating humor, less desperate to be the new Bananas. He seems almost benign now. Link to comment
