Default My thoughts on S21

Hard to believe we are at the end of another season! Although for me, I stopped watching after about week 5 or 6. Thanks to you guys and the recaps at Entertainment Weekly, I have stayed caught up but in a way that doesnít require to watch a season I truly hated.

My reason for this season boils down to cast, with no one being exempt from my distain. The dominate players (Jackson, Jack, Christy) were cruel and relentless. The underdogs (Cliff, Nicole, etc) were stale and did absolutely nothing to change their spots for weeks on end, often times just doing what they were told when the opportunity had struck to do otherwise. Everyone else (Tommy, Holly, the rest) just played their roles and nothing more. I was rooting for Kat at one point simply because she reminded me of Janelle. KAT! ROOTING FOR KAT! Thatís fucked up.

The season was mostly twist free. Camp comeback could have been cool and brought a fun new aspect to the season, sadly the evicted houseguests were too compliant to make waves in their attempts to come back into the house. It was a waste of screen time in the end and I hope they just deploy this twist in the future, it has potential.

I thought the challenges were a step up this season, although they still donít meet or beat anything on The Glass House (yes, I realize this was a 1 season thing from a million years ago. Still the one to beat in his department.) I especially loved the challenge that involved snakes. It was jarring and as a houseguest I imagine that isnít the easiest thing to do. The smells One was also top notch and I hope they go down this path in the future.

As for my rankings...

1. Jackson - I absolutely hate that this man is my number one. HATE. He has proven to be racist, misogynistic, ill tempered and seemingly insane at moments. I would not want to be his friend in the real world nor do I think my opinion would change. That said, he walked into that game knowing who he was, he didnít back down from it for a god damn second and he truly outplayed every last person in that game in every possible way. He did what he had to, created what he had to and did it all out in the open and manipulated every person to believe in the gospel of Jackson. The 2nd cherry on top would be his challenge wins, impressive indeed. Fuck this asshole, but give him the win.

2. Holly - I donít know, she did things.

3. Nicole - COULD HAVE CHANGED THE GAME. Her and Cliff not voting out Holly at 5 was awful gameplay from 2 people that have managed to fuck up almost every aspect of their game at the wrong times. I do not think Nicole has played a good game and although personality wise she is BY FAR my favourite, I canít help but think that Nicole needs to use this season as a lesson and come back on again when she is ready to really break free. I know there are likely a lot of Nicole fans and I totally get it. But this one doesnít check off nearly enough boxes to even be a contender.

Was fun enjoying the season with you all and donít forget...

...SURVIVOR STARTS NEXT WEEK! XOXO

I tend to agree with your "no one being exempt from my distain."
