Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
She wasn't able to Hollywoo' anyone this time. Cordelia's game finally caught up to her.
Cordelia was an amazing character to write for, so fun, and even though accents aren't my favorite thing, the rest of Cordelia's character was well worth it. While the lying bit was initially unplanned after going over the app and her character, it seemed like something that someone like her might try, and since outright lying as a strategy hasn't really been done before, it seemed like the perfect fit.
I know she wasn't the most popular character since she stirred a BUNCH of shit up and played hard against some favorites in the game, but personally she's one of my favorites from this season just due to how she played on top of her personality. Perhaps if she were to play again the lying would be toned down, but for now it was a great way to have some early stories proceed and create a satisfying downfall to an amazing character.
Cordy, I have just one thing to say...
Screw you and the horse you rode in on.
@landis963: I didn't know Bojack came to the Island
Well, glad that worked out. But man, Sylvia's only digging her grave further with her comments.
@ChronoAlone: She saw the writing on the wall and was putting up a valiant effort to stop it
@ChronoAlone: Can't help those who can't be helped.
HA HA OWNED!
@Vilecheese: Brandi and Cordelia were always destined to face each other
I liked Cordelia a lot, but I knew eventually her lies would catch up to her. Gonna miss you :(.
Brandi (This change in rankings though.)
Zach (Please God, let him be more interesting.)
@guesty: Her absence will def be recognized
YES! And all around the world, people sang praises over the joy of the bitch Cordelia leaving the show at long last! I seriously can't believe I had her ranked at the top of my list preseason. A huge miscalculation on my part. I was expecting her to be snarky, witty and sneaky, not...vile, hateful, annoying, and a lying machine. So, yeah, she was a huge disappointment to me. I honestly can't tell how her own creator feels about her, since she's so emotionless, but to be fair she should be proud. Even if I, personally, couldn't stand Cordelia and she's not the type of character for me, I CAN understand why some people call her a "star". She is, in a way. She's just a really rotten one with a personality and game strategy that I do not respect or enjoy. I can still acknowledge that she was a huge part of the season. I am SO proud of Brandi for finally listening to Marie and finding out the truth. Took her long enough. I doubt this will last, but I'm so relieved Ky didn't leave, or else we would've just been left with Taro and Marie for our fun, and that can't happen. Personally, I don't want to see Cordelia come back. As proven here, she's just too big a liar to ever trust again, so there's no point in her coming back.

PERFECT - At this point, Ky is one of my favorite characters in the entire series, so he goes into the acclaimed "perfect" status. He is simply amazing in every way and nothing he does could ever make me hate him. Ky is very hilarious, he's very kindhearted, and he's actually quite smart when he wants to be. He's random in a good way, he's nice to pretty much everyone around him, he's a good challenge player, and he makes every single comic he's in that much better. He's perfection.
ADORE - Taro and Marie are both way up on my list, too, as easy characters to adore. They aren't QUITE what Ky is in terms of enjoyment and overall likability, but they're very close. Taro's protectiveness of Ky and when he actually talks about his game...those are great. Taro being a troll or trying to be funny...yeah, kinda cringe-worthy. But, Taro is a sweetheart with a heart of gold, and so is Marie. Marie having to fight back from Cordelia's lying, Brandi's delusional hate, Daisuke momentarily being against her, Freddy leaving early...Marie's endured so much. Ky, Taro and Marie, no matter what happens from here on out, are the three best characters of this season. That's not an opinion, that's a fact.
LOVE - Zach and Leah remain in my high good graces for staying loyal to Ky and Taro, not trying to actually flip to the numbers just to be in the majority, and not trying to cut shady side-deals at the expense of Ky and Taro. While they aren't the most INTERESTING of characters, I reward those that show their loyalty and those that TRY to do the right thing, so these two will continue to be high on my list so long as they keep sticking with Ky and Taro.
NEUTRAL - Yep, that's right. Brandi is bordering on the edge of me actually liking her. Stunning, I know. But, that's how much someone's favor (for me) can turn around in one episode. Brandi actually chose to listen to Marie, she actually chose to "talk" with Ky to hear his side, and she finally did the right thing. It's been a LONG time coming, and it might be too little, too late. But, at least for this episode, Brandi has earned herself a part in my top 10, and NOT on my hate list. I'm rather shocked myself.
HATE - Oh how the mighty have fallen. Sylvia, Dustin, you both have disappointed me. Don't get me wrong, I know why they stuck with Brandi, Cordelia and Shaega, but...it just makes all the work they did to make bonds with Ky, Taro, Leah and Zach while on Tortana completely pointless. I mean, what even was the point of that swap? Just to get rid of Lea and Tamara? Sylvia is a cowardly, two-faced bitch who just kisses the ass of whoever has the numbers so she doesn't leave, and that's disgraceful. Dustin is too stupid to live; while Ky gets some cute insight and adorableness in HIS dialogue, Dustin is always...stupid. And, again, Dustin votes against Ky when they were good buddies on Tortana. All of that was for nothing. You both are dead to me. Oh, and Shaega is still an asshole, so screw him.
@Tailslover13: Ding Don the bitch is dead. Brandi I still hate u a little however continue to the right thing and i will like more and more. You are right Dustin is stupid and I'm kind of sad that he didn't stick by Ky. Slyvia screw u
@crazy fan : Yeah, screw Dustin and Sylvia. They're dead to me. And, it's fine; I expect Brandi to move right back down again soon, but...for THIS episode, she earned a spot in my top 10.
@Tailslover13: Wonder if I can drop Ky into the Black area.....
@SWSU-Master: You mean the hate area? That's impossible at this point. Unless he suddenly pulls off a Bonnie/Tapioca thing sometime from this point onward, but...it would be hard to make him drop down. He's just everything I love and enjoy in a character, and it would be hard or just downright stunning to see that change.
@Tailslover13: I'm going to have to thoroughly agree with your rankings. Although I still can't bring myself to see Brandi as more than the knight templar she's been for most of the season. I think this is probably a case of too little, too late.
@Sonofhades: Well, thanks very much! And, don't worry, I highly expect Brandi to sink back down into my 'hate' area before long.
@Tailslover13: I give it until she starts targeting Ky again. Which is a legitimate move, mind, but he is the best character in this season.
@Sonofhades: Naturally. I'll give it until then, too...probably won't be long.
she wasn't the most popular castaway, especially in the comments section, but i think i'm going to miss cordelia, strangely enough! i appreciated all the scenes where she was made out to be a joke lol
but more importantly, this vote probably cleared brandi's head a bit, and kept ky around. i still wanna know what that guy's deal is.
next episode, brandi investigates shaega?
@Congo: Ky is just a happy person :)
@SWSU-Master: yeah, that's mostly what i think. he's a nice guy, but then he does stuff like... store markiplier in his robot arm? weirdest sfc joke.
Woot! Refreshing the page for over an hour was well worth it! (I'm just a slow reader).
That being said, I'm not too surprised with the result of this tribal. The writing was fairly on the wall before today. It was still really tense though, and the back and forth between Brandi, Cordelia, and everyone was really satisfying.
As for Cordelia, as I stated yesterday, there's not a single character I'd want gone more than Cordelia, but even then I didn't particularly dislike her. She was just very neutral for me among a strong cast, and I'm happy with this result.
That out of the way, I'd like to point out some mistakes in this Tribal SWSU. Usually I don't do this, but this was pretty big. In panel- oh. You fixed it. Nevermind then! Great work as always SWSU :p
@anime9001: HA! ERROR FIXING CHAMPION!
@SWSU-Master: Well, to be fair, the shading is still off. I can see where it used to be wrong ;p
HELL FUCKING YES! I'm absolutely DELIGHTED by this vote off, this was my favorite tribal of the entire season. Brandi has COMPLETELY shot up in the likability factor, as it has become increasingly obvious that the reasons I hated before were because of Cordelia's lies and Shaega's manipulation with paranoia. If she continues down this redemption path, she could potentially become one of the most complex characters in SFC, and actually even likable!
As for Cordelia, she was a great character and I actually enjoyed her more than some people did, but she was definitely wearing out her welcome. Her constant lying seemed incredibly cheap towards the end, and I'm glad she left when she did. This merge is starting out perfectly.
Also, very disappointed in Sylvia. She was one of my favorites earlier in the season and she is rapidly falling out of my good graces. I was defending her up until this point, but she is seriously making me not like her anymore. I hope she and Dustin change their tune soon.
Rankings: Ky > Marie > Taro > Zach > Shaega > Brandi > Leah > Sylvia > Dustin
@dat4yc: Sylvia was on the defense because she did not want to lose another number
@SWSU-Master: Yeah thinking about it more, Sylvia isn't inherently unlikeable. Her association with Cordelia was the main reason for my dislike. She was definitely just trying to keep her numbers and I definitely still respect her as a player. I seriously don't have significant problems with anybody this season, the cast is that fantastic
Good riddance to a generic character, a complete jerk and all of the comments drama. 88th reading, and now this is retroactively my favorite strip of the season.
@TrollDoll: I'd say she was far from Generic
@SWSU-Master: I still hate kangaroos after the Australian woman told me to get real job :(
*dances and twirls around*
Fuck yeah! Finally, the annoying and vile blue kangaroo is out! I'm so happy right now. :D
Yes, Brandi gurl slay it. Burn her!! Bwhahahaha!
@arv0908: *throws dance party*
@arv0908: Thankfully they have Burn heal at Ponderosa
Let me start off by saying while I do like troublemakers in Survivor, my opinions of them depend entirely on execution. I used to like Cordelia. A lot. Then I realized I hated all the Golgora conflict she was stirring up on her own*, and it only got worse from there. I don't think she's as annoying as some people might think, but she crossed the line way too much during her stay, and that's not something I can root for.
* Most of the conflict was probably Shaega's doing, but I'm not counting it because he's proven to be a complete disaster as a villain. The spirit did all the work.
We had to wait an extra 75 minutes for this trial at Tribal. Brandi's redemption never felt so drowsy.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: My Internet died, hence the delay
I'm SO HAPPY! TOP Bitch of the BITCHES COVEN is finally GONE, & if Brandi DOES stay on the GOOD path for ONCE here, then that all but means that, the Coven is NO MORE! HEHEHE *laughs Estastically*
& since it's ABOUT time I finally do this, let's GET this over w/ FINALLY! here's the Ranking now;
Marie > Taro > Zach > Leah > Ky > Brandi > Sylvia > Shaega > Dustin
Marie > Sylvia > Zach > Leah > Ky > Taro > Brandi > Dustin > Shaega
Well then, w/ this ALL said/done, I hope this goes a LONG ways to help finish this season strong now.
Also, SWSU, in case any applicant has a detail that was SLIGHTLY forgotten during the Sign-up process, are we able to tell you about it real quick (since I ASSUME that planning for the next season/cast is still a LONG WHILE to finish)?
It hit the right contestant! Cordelia played an effective game manipulating Brandi's votes against the people she saw as threats.
However, she totally underestimated Marie's importance this season and shouldn't have involved the princess in her lies. I'm just happy she won't get more than second jury spot.
Hmm, Brandi's interrogation was suitable for once but I dunno if Sylvia's protests are a good sign for the next episode. This might have an effect on the almost even numbers.
I guess Brandi will be more focused on uncovering Sheaga's secret anyway
Bye bye Cordelia. Wouldn't be surprised if Shaega had a hand in this whole thing blowing out of proportion. Especially given the lack of emotion Dustin, Sylvia, and Shaega all had after Cordelia was voted off. XD
For the preview... Zach did say he was beginning to catch onto something, likely referring to Paranoia. I can assume it will be him. I believe the second one could be Marie, Brandi, Shaega, or Leah. For the third one, I believe the Supers/Marie will end up winning the next vote.
WINNER'S EDIT RANKING
Zach > Leah > Marie > Dustin > Taro > Sylvia > Brandi > Ky > Shaega
Honestly though? After this episode I don't see HOW a Normal wins the game. Marie voting with the Supers will only hurt her endgame, as she will guarantee nobody votes for her.
Zach and Leah have arguably the best edits of the Supers, and if Taro steps up to the plate, he can become a contender as well. Ky... we all love Ky, but he's a distraction for the eventual winner. All the clues suggest Taro will outlast him.
Aside from Marie... Dustin will be taken out before the Finals. Sylvia's chances are dropping, but hopefully this tribal makes her see the light and finally rebel against Brandi. I know most of Brandi's delusionals were because of Shaega... but let's be fair here, if she was the winner, there would be a little more depth. Finally, Shaega's not winning. But I think we knew that.
I don't know what I hated more about Cordelia the lying or the accents.....
it was the accents. The lying in Survivor terms was fair game, but to subject everyone to a fake French accent for a month? Unforgivable!!!
Now can Brandi continue to pull her head outta her ass and actually play the game?
Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssss, bye Cordelibitch <3
Congratulations team, you managed to take out Corderlia.
Now with her gone, while there's still forms of foul play going on with Shaega, and Brandi still has quite a bit to prove (Sylvia did make a few good points), hopefully this will make the game a lot less messy as a whole.
BTW, sorta hoping for Taro and Ky as final 2. Doubt it's gonna happen, but hey, that would be cool.
Well, Cordelia's gone. Points for morality, but is losing the numbers worth it at this point?
The Next Episode previews... Time for speculation:
Investigation to Uncover a Secret... I wonder if Shaega's about to be discovered or if it's another secretish secret?
Better or for Worse... My guess is it's probably someone not-very-smart, like Dustin. This could be bad for old Golgora.
Numbers Almost Even... Yeah, I'm thinkin' Golgora is gonna break apart. Brandi went off the rails to redeem herself, Shaega's gone evil-mode, Sylvia and Dustin already had doubts about Brandi, Marie's in league with the crowd favorite anthros... All that's left to question is WHEN it'll happen...
NAH NAH NAH NAH, NAH NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY HEY, GOODBYE!
She sucked, she lied, she annoyed, and she failed. Good fucking riddance.
Brandi isn't complete garbage anymore! I don't like her, but at least the reason she sucked wasn't her fault.. The road to redemption is a long one, but i'm willing to forgive her.
And Ky survived which is awesome.
I'm glad Cordelia's gone, but I'd like to mention something I should've talked about earlier. Am I the only one who saw Shaega put Paranoia in Ky's arm?
@DryIceBros: What panel are you looking at?
@Blastoise_FTW: The last 4 panels of Sushi Apprentice.
@DryIceBros: Well, after those 4 panels SWSU made a joke about spirits not being able to make sushi so it felt more like a throwaway gag than anything. It might be in there though. Everyone's just ignoring it because of that.
CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES COME ON!
It took me two minutes to start this comment just because I was laughing so hard. With Cordelia gone, now we can get to more interesting gameplay instead of a competition to see who can throw the most shade. I am a very happy panda right now. Goodbye, Cordelia. You will not be missed.
