Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Talk about going out with a Big Bang.... in Theory. Freddy heads home.
With Freddy, I wanted to play up the traditional Reality Show Nerdy Boy Stereotype, but I knew from very early on making him negative wouldn't work, since then it would just be a simple "Take That" Of the trope. And I save all of my Cheap "Take that's" On Redemption Island. So I decided to have him as the unassuming nerdy guy who speaks poorly of their skills, but ends up in a decent spot.
I wanted it to be set up like he COULD do what he was feared to do, have him check all of the boxes of what we've seen in the shows. Then have the Genre Savvy players on the tribe catch the signals while he's still in the innocent and unsuspecting phase, and take him out there. Was it a good game move to take out someone who had mass potential to be a threat down the line, or was it cruel to vote him out based on assumptions. I'll leave that part up for interpretation.
Alright, so the Bitches Coven somehow lives another day, and now the likable people will be in trouble.
So fuck Brandi, Cordelia, and Tamara.
@ChronoAlone: They still hold a minority in the tribe though
@SWSU-Master: But how long will that last? Not too long, I wager. Especially since Brandi seems to be levitating towards Cordelia and Tamara. And Shaega will most likely go off on his own again, leaving Dustin, Marie, and Sylvia. So the majority will be gone, but hopefully the swap will clear out the filth.
Four guy boots in a row? Thank you very much! Of all the possible boots that were possible, this was the one I was most acceptable of. I've never been a fan of The Big Bang Theory characters brought into this comic, they just don't intrigue me. Thankfully, they've never truly done all that well. See you never Freddy! <3
@JboyInc: That's understandable
wow, brandi is ruthless. i wonder how far her game will go until she comes crashing down to earth again!
i had a feeling freddy's boot was being foreshadowed on "Day 8 Lie Detector". i was starting to like freddy a bit more on this episode. felt like he was sort of coming into his own, you know? "nerdy superfan who gains confidence" is a story that might come off as too cliche these days, so he's gone. ah well... marie's not happy about this boot. i'd like to see a brandi/marie rivalry!
cordelia and tamara survive another tc somehow? cordelia's faces were extremely smug on this comic.
shaega actually voted for sylvia? he really wants to know what it's like to laugh, i guess? weird. he seems almost disappointed that the vote wasn't funny.
the "next episode" directly contradicting jeff lol. he didn't seem to like freddy being booted. not a good day for him!
@Congo: Then we're exact opposites because I thought it was Brandi's boot being foreshadowed there. Because Freddy's story up to this episode was that he was Brandi's right-hand-man.
Then through this episode we learn that Sly/Dustin like him enough to keep their alliance with him going while they bring in Shaega and Marie (implying that Brandi's not needed anymore). And then there's the comic you mentioned, which told ME that even Freddy, her closest ally, didn't trust her anymore.
This whole episode PERFECTLY set up the Brandi blindside and I'm sad it didn't happen :(
@coolkyledude: That comic was there to show the Brandi/Freddy relationship was crumbling with Freddy lying to Brandi... someone who clearly hates liars. And she acted first.
@Congo: I was surprised the Day 8 Comic did not raise ALOT of Red Flags for Freddy
This wasn't a good vote. It should've been Brandi >:(
I was GOING to name off a few likely winner candidates because why not, but seeing as they were Freddy and Shaega I don't think I was right.
Freddy was, well, voted out, and Shaega's a little too easily manipulated. It won't be either of them.
It's a shame the Shae/Slyvia/Dustin trio isn't going to happen anymore seeing as Shaega just voted for one of them, but I still have high hopes for Slystin <3
For the previews:
Swap is self-explanatory, also I aggressively let air out of my nose on that one
HOT WATER IS BRANDI
Unite or crumble... It depends on who's on which tribe.
@coolkyledude: Shaega might be in a rough spot, but its not one that's game crushing
Well, that's pretty annoying. I think the part I'm most annoyed about though is Shaega being that stupid. That really shouldn't have worked. Interesting that he was trying to make people happy though and could realize when they weren't.
As for the ones who made this happen, this is really hard on me because I WANT to like Brandi, and I can even defend her to some degree on her actions, but....she's making it really hard for me. As for the other two, one of the cockroach duo needs to go. I actually like Cordelia alright, but she can do her cockroach act solo.
@anime9001: Shaega was not acting out of stupidity. He can't feel emotions, so he wanted to see if voting for Sylvia was funny.
He had nothing to judge it on since he'd never experienced it before.
@SWSU-Master: Well, he was able to judge that it wasn't...
@anime9001: He didn't feel anything before or after the vote. So by default, voting Slyvia wasn't funny. Or at least it wasn't funny enough.
@Guest: That's true, but it's just how he said it. To me, it feels like he said it because he realized everyone was upset. Same as when he said "I hope that it's entertaining" made me feel like he was talking for the tribe as a whole, and not just for himself. Perhaps I'm wrong, but that's what I gleamed from it.
SUCH. BULLSHIT. But, knowing how SWSU works, this shouldn't be that big a shock, since he can't stand nerdy types. But this is incredibly unfair and he knows it. Freddy didn't deserve to leave, even if the reasons behind him leaving did logically make sense. He was not only likable and charming, but he felt like an actual character and he was a lot of fun to watch start to mature. And then it was all taken away. Jeff was right to be angry about this. I know I am. It's just wrong. Brandi, Cordelia and Tamara will pay for this. None of them are winning the game, that's for damn sure, but I really can't wait to watch their comeuppance, whenever it may come.

@Tailslover13: Big red X
@Vilecheese: I'm...not sure what you really mean by that.
@Tailslover13: It means he Agrees.
Bitches coven getting a little bit stronger with each vote...
@qazox: But they aren't unstoppable
Well, I'm still alive, so that must mean I never cared much about the guy who went home. You know who would make a good surprise villain? Marie. Let's all hope that she goes on to prove Brandi right.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Who's your character?
@coolkyledude: I jumped on the bandwagon a little late, unfortunately. My character's going to come next season. I already have the application finished, but I'm in the process of reading every season to make sure he's not too similar to anyone else.
I'm one of TJ's colleagues, so you could say I'm supporting him and Juli. Even though I did not particularly like the way Juli played/acted in her original season.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: OH. Lol, when you said you were 'still alive' I thought you meant your character was still in the game :P
@coolkyledude: Read my post for the previous comic.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: I'm sure this doesn't come as a surprise, but SWSU also has to pick your character to include after you submit them. And they can always come in future seasons as well. But yeah, best of luck making them~ I have one in mind I REALLY want to do, but I'm just being lazy writing him up :p
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Marie's already had suspicion on her :P
This elimination order is fucking disgusting.
@Vilecheese: Sorry the actual story didn't meet up with your preseason predictions.
@SWSU-Master: You should listen to them more!
@Vilecheese: Okay start giving me your Specific SFC16 predictions
@SWSU-Master: Cordelia and Luna F2.
So does that mean you'll do the opposite and get rid of them? :)
Surprised but glad to see Shaega vote for Sylvia. Hopefully the swap will lead to more balanced challenges.
Also, lol at Jeff being upset Cochran lite was booted.
@Thorne: The Swap will even things out for sure
Aw, crap. One of the few likable characters remaining on the tribe got booted and the Bitches Coven is going strong. This season's hate sink is extremely well done. It's going to be so satisfying when one of them gets taken out and Brandi breaks down from the paranoia.
*facepalm* Brandi, how could you... If she wants to turn into the next Dinah so be it but I cannot root for her anymore.
Freddy only did what his heart told him and while he sucessfully fought his shyness he never got to complete his character development by entering the jury. Oh well...
Shaega should definitely drop the ball like last time and tell the others what Cordelia suggested. Not that it would matter THAT much with the tribe swap coming but while I gotta admit Cordelia plays her cards rather well, I don't like the fact that Tamara benefits so much from it
Well I did expect in my original assumption of Freddy to be a pre merger, given that SWSU randomly dislikes the nerd types. That said I'm surprised he didn't give Freddy a bad edit.
Either way, I suspected this after good performances from Eli, Robbie, Critic, and Yukie. The fifth Survivor nerd was likely going to be pre merge.
Also, Jeff seems pissed that Freddy is gone. I would be too. XD He speaks for the fanbase.
Golgora: Tamara > Brandi > Sylvia > Cordelia > Dustin > Marie > Shaega
Tortana: Daisuke > Luna > Zach > Leah > Juli > Gekkota > Taro > Lea > Ky
As for the preview... I'm gonna suspect a swap, Brandi's in hot water, and that Tortana will never be the same tribe again.
@TJBambi93: Also, regarding Shaega... I actually think that will be his story: he wants to learn emotion. He wanted to laugh at voting for Sylvia, but didn't find anything to laugh at. So.. by the time Shaega is gone, we will at least see him move more on his face then just his eyes and mouth.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Fuck you Shaega, ur not my bae anymore </3. I trusted you and this is what you give me. Fuck off.
FREDDY <\3. FUCK YOU BITCHES COVEN. MARIE WILL KILL YOU ALL AND BURN YOU IN THE BOTTOMLESS PIT. ENJOY UR LAST DAYS BITCHES.
I might be wrong but seriously with Freddy gone, a Zach/Ky win is inevitable, considering Freddy was a contender </3. Every guy left is either Too OTTP or too Invisible. Ky is at least in our knowledge a smart kid compared to Dai and Dus. Taro's Invisible and is a joke atm.
The female contender is mostly only Leah and Slyvia, considering how Brandi was took as a fucking OTTN joke and Cordelia/Tamara win is too unlikable and few people would like it seeing how negatively complex bitches they are. Juli is barely. Lunabot has no personality ffs. Gekkota is a bot and has little chance. Marie ehhh very little. Lea HAHAHA.
SHAEGA IS A RETARD
Him of all people I think wouldn't have falled for that. Whatever.
Freddy wasn't bad, he got kind of screwed but eh. I did expect him to go farther. Also... Both Bernie and Freddy were taken out by someone with an accent.. Odd.
I hate the ''Bitches Coven'' as everyone like to name it these days. Still better than bland bot trio, but that's a very easy bar to jump over.
So he went with the obvious boot I see. Oh boy. At this rate, even if Brandi, Cordelia, or Tamara somehow make it to the Final Two, I sincerely doubt they'll get enough votes, they're gonna be pissing waaaaaay too many people off.
I also have to wonder when merge happens what will happen. If they will be able to manipulate the characters like in this tribe, or if they will find themselves with a wall that's incredibly difficult to climb (figuratively and literally). Either way, at this point I'm expecting at least some of the annoying trio to make merge.
.-. Bye Freddy, you were okay. Brandi is becoming pretty difficult to like, especially now that she's voting with Cordelia.
Well then, since no confessionals were made on his part, it was harder to predict, but Freddy leaving, while REALLY sad, may have JUST NEEDED to happen, for an even BIGGER developing story dtr.
All I'll say here is that, for Bitches Coven, they struck GOLD for now in the make/break moment of TC, but that Swap can make it ALL for not once more. So for the haters of this trio, you can feel rest assured that this Swap has GOOD chances of RUINING them once more.
