Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
She may have won the battle, but she lost the war. Brandi is Finally Eliminated after all the chances she was given.
Wow, okay where to start with Brandi. She was one of the characters I knew would be incredibly polarizing this season, and given the comments. She was a complete success, here you have someone with no powers, against a bunch of players with ridiculous abilities, and her personality is enough to make her the biggest villain of the season, and she wasn't even trying, at no point did she ever try and proclaim herself as the villain. Brandi always spoke like she was the hero, and in a sense that made all of her actions so much more effective.
I can understand the criticism that she was overbearing. Yes she was, and after 33 days of living with her, its surprising none of them went insane, emotional manipulation, moral crusading, Trigger Happy Betrayals. All part of her arsenal, and yes she did have a bloated edit, she was a big character and controlled a bunch of events in the game. It was almost needed, and for those that wanted her gone earlier. Sorry, but like Marie's boot, this has been planned from Day 1, these two boots were so connected that they needed to take place in the same episode. Brandi caused her own downfall by eliminating Marie.
In closing, I loved using her, and all of the complaints people had about her, were completely justified, and that's exactly how I wanted it.
@DrMarble: I knew exactly what that was going to be XD
@SWSU-Master: I already had it ready even before this was posted :P
So...I COULD scream my head off happily at this and sing the parody that everyone always sings from The Wizard Of Oz that has to do with dead witches...but I'm gonna be mature about it instead. After thinking long and hard about it...I realized that I don't hate Brandi as much as I thought I did. Cordelia...yeah, she's scum. Cordelia was just a vile, horrible person who's main purpose was to lie and hurt others. That's NOT funny or entertaining. However, Brandi really was a good person at heart; she was just so horribly bad at the game and was a bad judge of character...and herself. She was pretty much a female Daisuke, but here's the difference. Daisuke played with his heart, but not his head. Brandi played with her head, but not her heart. So, they both had some serious flaws, yet both of them are good people truthfully. So, after watching Brandi's craziness, absurdity, delusion, and silly speeches...I've come to respect her. She really reminded me of Vanessa from Big Brother 17, except without the crying. Now that we all see she doesn't win, I think we all can appreciate what Brandi brought to the season.

PERFECT - As always, Ky is the only one worthy of being in this spot. He remains relevant, observant, one of the biggest threats to win the game, likable, charming, sweet, funny, and even when someone annoys him...he doesn't let it turn him nasty, like it does to Leah, Sylvia and others. He's likely going to be the tragic lose in the next episode, which is going to kill me, but win or lose, he's the best this season. Probably the best Sonic character ever, too...except maybe over Artemis. Ha.
ADORE - Taro remains as a high tier guy. If he just had the over-the-top absurdity that Donovan had, he would easily be in the white area with Ky. But, he's just not PERFECT in what I love in a character. He's great, but it's starting to look more and more like he's just using Ky as a shield, and he simply cares about him in the game and that's it. It's sweet, but...it kinda bugs me somehow. I can't explain it. I don't know. Taro likely will likely be the only part of the duo left after this episode, sadly.
LOVE - Leah moves down a little, because at this point, all she has going for her is her "rivalry" with Sylvia, and that just...isn't all that interesting. She has no purpose left in this story. Like...none. What are her motivations? What are her plans going forward? Has she even done ANYTHING interesting other than tell off Dustin, get drunk, and waste her idol since the merge? I mean, she's still a Super, and so long as she sticks with Ky and Taro, that's great. But...she's just...POINTLESS! I almost prefer Liz/Jojo.
NEUTRAL - Sylvia momentarily gets back into the neutral area, for taking out Brandi and doing it hilariously. Other than that, it's very likely she's going to win at this point. I'm willing to bet that Shaega is going to take Ky out in the next episode, and Sylvia becomes the "heroine" that has to stop him, but Dustin goes against her and joins Shaega and they take out Leah/Taro as well, and Sylvia is left to win the game against the two idiot "bros". I really hope not, since I don't want to see Sylvia win, but just watch.
HATE - I'm so disappointed that Dustin is in this area. I really wanted him to be like Gatemaster from SFC5, or even Geoff/Brody from The Ridonculous Race. But, instead, Dustin is a complete idiot who is ruining the game of everyone around him even worse than Brandi/Cordelia/Tamara did! Seriously, if you guys are gonna call those three girls the "Bitches Coven", then I think Shaega/Dustin should be the "Bastard Bros" or something, because they're screwing the game worse than the ladies did. Shaega just sucks.
@Tailslover13: Brandi is not a good person at heart lmao. She's completely delusional and doesn't realize how much she hurts people with her emotional bullying.
@Vilecheese: Ironically, being delusional causing you to hurt those around you doesn't mean you're not a good person. It just means that you're misguided. Afterall, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
@Vilecheese: Like Anime9001 said, just because her actions were misguided, it doesn't make her a bad person. She wasn't doing things out of actual malicious emotion, like someone akin to Bonnie would do. Brandi DID apologize to Marie, and only took her out because she was a threat, not because of anything else. So...at heart, she is a good person. At least I believe that.
@Tailslover13: Well, at least all of the loathed characters are gone, eh?
@Sonofhades: Yep, so thank goodness for that. Shaega or Dustin might move down there eventually, though, depending on what happens next. I hope not, though; I don't like putting people into that area. I might move Cha'Telle out of it and into the 'hate' area at season's end, too.
@Tailslover13: Yeah, if I went back and reread the season, I probably wouldn't hate Brandi as much. However, i still found her moral crusades and holier then thou attitude absolutely insufferable. Overall, Im very happy with this result. Only thing that would have made it better would be if Shaega panicked and played his idol.
@DrMarble: Shaega might do that next episode to ensure a Super goes home, so don't worry...it's sadly gonna be happening soon, I'm sure.
@Tailslover13: Sylvia's thing still says Hate ^^
@ChronoAlone: Nah, you were totally just seeing things!
@Tailslover13: I think some people might be justified in their hatred towards her though
@SWSU-Master: Duh. I'm just saying that I sat back and thought about it and didn't make a rash decision about how I felt.
@Tailslover13: random comment ~
Poor Lea being neutral and basically being a forgotten goddess.
@arv0908: She wasn't a "goddess" of anything. She didn't DO anything other than transform into a few people and cause minor chaos. If it was Donovan, Alleio, Enter, or Skazzatrazz, the chaos would've been far better. Lea wasn't BAD, but there was just no substance to her.
@Tailslover13: She was a goddess of nothing. :P
I was disappointed with her tbh considering we got this bland Leah with no story at all.
Also nice Bitches Coven reference. ^^
Bastard Bros though lmfao
@arv0908: Yeah, let's see if that catches on. Dustin and Shaega, the Bastard Bros. One's an idiot, one's an insane sadistic psychopath. What could go wrong?
@Tailslover13: One could commit murder and be totally fine with it. One's a dumbass that is too dumb to live. Nothing wrong at all. Except maybe someone's winning *coughs*Ky*coughs* totally robbed. Yay! *cries*
@Tailslover13: They could rival the Mario Bros... Or the Wario Bros. Probably the latter.
If you'll pardon my profanity in advance, EAT SHIT, BRANDI. Ahem. At first, I was merely bemused by how Brandi was such a horrible detective, but I actually began to loathe her over time. She was a highly effective character, and now that she's gone, we can stop flooding the comments section with vitriol. At least until Dustin makes his next stupid move.
@Sonofhades: Now we can focus our disdain on Shaega, tho thats less because he's a hateable villain and more because he's completely lame.
@DrMarble: Agreement. Though disdain is better than loathing. And honestly, Shaega's never going to win the season.
@Sonofhades: Shaega winning would be so unbelievably ludicrous and stupid that it would actually come around to being awesome.
@Sonofhades: I don't know what half the commenters are going to say without Brandi here to insult
@SWSU-Master: We can just talk about whatever Ky is doing, that seems to work pretty well.
@SWSU-Master: Probably gushing about Ky and Taro, honestly. Or making fun of Leah being out of focus.
I think Marie needs some sunscreen.
Also this elimination was really nice. Pretty much went perfectly. Now I can't wait for everybody vs. Shaega next episode.
@Vilecheese: Marie went tanning :3
My Danganronpa meters are going crazy. Shae's behavior, the way he talked about feeling things, the "Trigger Happy" in the description. If Shae mentioned something about feeling despair, I would have imploded.
But thank goodness Brandi was finally taken out. She desperately needed to leave. Now we have Shae to deal with, and he still has his idol. Ho-ho, this is going to be good! >:)
@ChronoAlone: Shaega is not Ultimate Despair. Let me squash that before it even starts
@SWSU-Master: Damn. Always has to ruin our fun.
I actually liked Brandi a lot tbh. She did what she was made to do, and she did it REALLY well. Going to miss you :(.
Taro (Why do people love him again? (Because he is with Ky :/. )).
Shaege (ughhhhh, he looked so good on paper. He is just so USELESS as a villain. Really wished Brandi stayed in over him.)
3rd. Shaega 1 vote to win
2nd. Dustin 3 votes to win
1st. Ky 4 votes to win
@guesty: My prediction is this:
3. Dustin (0 Votes)
2. Sylvia (3 Votes: Brandi, Cordelia, Gekkota)
1. Taro (5 Votes: Marie, Zach, Ky, Leah, Shaega)
@guesty: Maybe with Brandi gone Shaega can shine
There are so many things wrong with this woman that I just do not have the patience to go over. I haven't ever gone into detail about my dislike of Brandi, but now that she's gone, let me officially state my opinion of the scoundrel that is Brandi. For the record:
I kind of feel bad for her.
Please put your weapons down and let me try to explain. For the many, many, *many* faults in both her strategic and social games, I think that Brandi's at the very least *aware* of everything she's been doing wrong. I myself first realized this when Marie told her about Cordelia's shenanigans. That was quite a breakdown. Even though her, um, "redemption arc" only lasted about two days, I think that Brandi herself would be the first person to tell you how horrible she was acting after the show. She's still a terrible player, but don't expect me to put her in the black section.
You may now shoot/skewer/ignite/strangle this lifelike dummy of me.
Is Dustin resting his feet on Sylvia's shoulders? I will never understand why these two are friends.
That fucking profile pic.
It is perfect.
It has ascended perfection.
@ChronoAlone: I SUMMON THE FOUR DARK DEVAS OF DESTRUCTION!
@DrMarble: Not even Exodia can match their power.
@ChronoAlone: CHAM-P! OBLITERATE!
@ChronoAlone: It's Tanaka the Forbidden One. MAD PHOTOSHOP SKILLZS
Inspired by my buddy Flash's adventures in Fanfic Forum roleplaying.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: That's awesome!
Well, he may have the Four Dark Devas of Destruction, I have this trap card: ULTIMATE DESPAIR! All former Ultimates Despairs will revert back to their original state once this card is played.
@ChronoAlone: That move... it, too, must be the will of causality.
(currently trying to do a Gundham impression)
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Seconding what Chrono says. Love the Avatar
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Why did I never think of Gundham wearing a duel disk in that position until now? I am ashamed in myself.
Now that I think about it, Brandi kind of reminds me of the Corsona Seven from Season 7. She was convinced she was the hero, which ironically made her EVER MORE hatable and villainous.
@DrMarble: God, Corsona was just the worst thing in the world.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Yep. Wrecker was the only one of them who wasn't a self-righteous twat and embraced being a villain. Ironically, that made him the most likable of the bunch.
@DrMarble: I didn't like Ker or Wrecker, so that fanvote idea that tore the fanbase in half had no effect on me. We'll get to my other thoughts on this season later, along with the others, during the weeks of the finale.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: SFC7 was the worst thing in the world tbh.
@DrMarble: Just goes to show, the best way to make villains, don't let them know they're villains
@DrMarble: That's funny. Corsona was season 7, and Brandi got in 7th place.
MARIE LOOKS SO BEAUTIFUL. I'M GONNA CRY. HER DRESS UGH, HER CROWN, PERFECTION IS THE WORD. <3
oh and Shaega can die.
Can't believe I was actually rooting for Shaega to just fail and Brandi stays.
Shaega is just a cocky bitch, I can't even stand him. He is totally worthless, a CPN kid wannabee but no honey you are UTRN. Good tribal, you just made yourself much more unbearing. Glad you are not winning!
OH AND YES MARIE IS A GODDESS.
Doing a rankings cuz wtf not.
@arv0908: Wow Dustin and Shaega are so high up they're 0 and -1
I just realized that I don't dislike anyone left in the game. Ky and Taro are perfect, Sylvia and Leah are cool, I'm neutral on Dustin, and Shaega is an extremely fascinating villain. This might actually be one of the best group of finalists yet!
@Misterjakester: Glad you're liking it :D
@SWSU-Master: Your welcome :)
Also, can I have your permission to use Montana and Norman in a Ridonculous Race fanfiction I'm writing? I'll give credit to you.
Well, this tribal went pretty much exactly how I expected it to, which.....surprises me more than if it didn't, honestly. She ousted Sheaga and left anyways. Simple and sweet.
As I stated earlier, I never particularly disliked Brandi. Especially after the Sheaga reveal. But it doesn't really excuse the fact that I really feel something off happened when Marie left earlier this episode before Brandi. Jeff said it right that, game-wise, Sheaga was the lesser of two evils. And as SWSU stated, they were so connected that they had to happen in the same episode, but it still feels off that after everything Marie endured she was the one that left first. I suppose Sheaga admitting he was masterminding everything made things come full circle and her elimination here after Marie wasn't entirely uncalled for, but it still feels like Marie's story was cut short without a full conclusion. Although if next season is finally another All Stars (since it's about that time again) then I suppose having an unfinished story arc doesn't really matter here. But either way, I digress.
As for Sheaga's reveal, I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Not at the reveal in general, but that he's apparently less of a "fail" villain than we gave him credit for. The only reason that disappoints me though is that we now have to treat him like an actual threat, which takes out a lot of the fun of watching Sheaga's work. Oh well.
And with ALL that out of the way, I'll just end off saying I'm happy with this result, although it makes me ponder what will happen next. Guess we'll find out soon enough~
@anime9001: There was a Learning Curve, and it seems Shaega finally got over the curve
@SWSU-Master: Well, to be fair, it sounds like he was more successful early on than he has been since Gekkota's departure. So that's an odd learning curve :p
@SWSU-Master: An insurmountable curve that Marie couldn't overcome.
I'm almost positive that Sylvia will win at this point, although I really hope it's Ky or Taro. Also, I really don't think Shaega is as lame as everyone's saying. He's pretty interesting to me and it's been really cool to see him gradually go crazy all season.
@Pout123: I think part of the lameness comes from the fact he hasnt done much yet.
@landis963: That's OFFICER Felicia
Good effort, Brandi. While she played with conviction and stayed true to herself... I wonder about that bit about 'honor'.
Righto, next episode previews! Oh, how I missed you.
LOVED ONES. I always look forward to this part of the season... maybe we can see a new side to the remaining six castaways. I'm particularly interested in Shaega and Taro.
Shaega's powers might be a bit worrisome, but I'm more worried about that idol of his. He WILL take someone out with that... all that remains is who?
Taro's probably still hiding deep under the radar, so either Ky or Leah is probably next on Shaega's hit-list. It's just a guess now, but Leah might be the next sent to the jury.
Righto. Time to get ready for work. Or at least 'go to work and think of Fan Characters to submit'. ...Don't tell my boss.
@RedBeryl: *Tells your boss*
@SWSU-Master: You monster.
My prediction came true. Shaega made the final 6!!!
Yeah figured that would happen.
When all is said and done, Brandi really wasn't all that bad. She made poor decisions, but she was not a terrible person at heart, just a little delusional. And Shaega's bullshit with paranoia definitely didn't help her. In the end, she was really a very good character, one of the more interesting in SFC history, and played a huge part in this season.
Ky > Taro > Shaega > Sylvia > Leah > Dustin
@dat4yc: I did love how her arc played out
^-^ Best case scenario happened. Like Marble said the only thing that could have made it better is if Shaega had wasted his idol, but in a way that would make it more boring since he'd be less of a threat.
Ranking (Didn't even notice it matched Tails's exactly until after I made it lol):
@Pie31415: Yeah, had to keep that Idol in play
Bye bye Brandi! While I'm sure people would be happy to see Shaega gone, I think everyone would agree that Shaega leaving and Brandi leaving would be the worst thing. XD
Now we go into the Final 6. Tons of things can happen out here. It's three against three... and really if a Super goes home, it will be Ky or Taro, likely Ky if he fails to secure immunity. If a Normal goes home, it will probably be Shaega or Dustin. Sylvia and Leah are likely guaranteed in the Final 5.
Sylvia now has a fighting chance, but at the same time, Shaega might make that difficult for her. At this point, she, Ky, and Taro are the only edgicable winners. Leah's been SO invisible lately that I doubt she stands a chance. Shaega and Dustin are lol.
That said... if Ky is not our winner, he's going home in the next two votes. There's no possible way he outlasts Taro unless he's the winner. The edit is pointing to Ky leaving before Taro, and Taro beginning to play extra hard in his honor. That's just my theory.
As for loved ones... I'm willing to bet we will see Martha, Leah's sister, and probably Tom Nook, as Taro mentioned that his brother had a shop, so I'm willing to bet Tom Nook is his brother. The rest are major guesses as I don't know anything about 90210 or Shaman King, and there's a lot of choices for Sonic and Street Fighter.
@TJBambi93: And the Loved Ones Guesses aren't even factoring OC's
The right confrontation but still too late. I won't weep for Brandi because she seriously disappointed me.
I expected her to be a hero who is constantly in the crossfire because of her specialty to uncover the villains secrets. Instead she reminded me of Yvonne aka Mrs. Paranoid, just that Brandi preferred staying in the spotlight. Even without Cordelia's influence she jumped from suspicion to suspicion, from target to target. I don't like people who are THAT irresolute.
Let's see how the others will handle the new bit of information. Since Shaega still has his idol, it's obvious he won't leave next. I think I will be more interested in the visitors anyway.
@SkySurfer: Sadly her being the hero in the crossfire was never her story
Yay, barndi is finally gone, here are my current ranknigs:
1. Lordina Leah (If you go home ill burke)
@TrollDoll: Omg gurl. I despise Mikayla too. *fistbump*
6. Annoying Lemon
11. Twin Sis #1
12. Twin Sis #2
13. Squid Girl
15. Black Chick
18. the other gamebot
20. Mikayla #fuckMikayla
@arv0908: You just made my day. Giving the troll a taste of his own medicine. You're awesome, ARV0908. You make everyone in the comments so happy with your random avatar changing, your spunky positivity, your intelligence on liking the best characters and thankfully hating those that deserve it (unlike several morons on Deviantart), and just being a charming individual~
@Tailslover13: Awwww. Thanks ^_^
You are very cool and amazing too! Plus, your comments have greatful insight and makes the comments section much more lively. I love your opinionated attitude and your ability to throw shade at SWSU when he's doing something that we do not like lmfao~
@TrollDoll: Solid ranking, you got one of the names right
NAH NAH NAH NAH, NAH NAH NAH NAH, HEY HEY HEY, GOODBYE!
SHE'S GONE! SHE'S GONE! ALL REJOICE FOR THE HORRIFIC BRANDI IS FINALLY GONE!
*Ahem* Sorry about that. But Brandi sucked. She might have sucked more than anyone else ever before her. She was the worst SFC character ever. I'll take ENTER over her! Hell I'll take Hantz over her.
Anyway, here's who I think is going to visit our little group here next episode:
Dustin: Don't know
Ky: Robot family member (That could be some funny black comedy)
Leah: Don't know
Shaega: Don't know
... I'm not too familiar with this group of series.
@Blastoise_FTW: Aren't they obvious? Dustin's Loved One is Surfer Dude #2, Leah's is Lea, and Shaega is Paranoia!
@DryIceBros: Better yet, Shaega's visitor can be Xeradonus. I bet he'd want his spirit back..
@Blastoise_FTW: I would not be that mean to Ky
Move over Brandi theres a new villain in camp and his name Shaega
@spinfur: He has big shoes to fill
