kikaha January 13, 2015 Share January 13, 2015 (edited) Adding to T&B's excellent post, Probst says the best overall player to ever play Survivor is a woman. Parvati. (I agree.) He says Cirie is one of the best players ever. According to Kim, he told her she was one of the best ever: in an interview I saw online he said she "played brilliantly." He points up Denise, Sophie and Natalie as outstanding players/winners. He says women are better leaders on Survivor. That does not line up with someone who believes only the big boys are real survivors. Men are strategic, women are conniving. Cirie, Kim and Natalie are all celebrated as outstanding strategists. So are Parvati, Andrea, Denise and Sophie. Probably so are Amanda and Taj. i.e. tons of counters to this. Men can be friends with someone and stab them in the back and there are some hurt feelings but mainly people are ok with it. A woman makes friends with people and stabs them in the back and she is a bitch Boston Rob generated more hatred and vitriol at All-Stars than any other person I recall at FTC. All because he stabbed his friends in the back. Coach lost his last season because he stabbed two of his friends in the back -- when he was unable to fess up, they switched their votes away from him. . Natalie played Jon like a Stradivarius, blindsided him, and is (rightly) applauded, both among fans and in the game. Kim backstabbed one man after another and is widely considered one of the all-time greats. My point is that the broad generalizations Prof. C made about Survivor are at best partially true. There are examples -- lots of them -- that are diametrically opposed to her view. Edited January 13, 2015 by kikaha 1 Link to comment
