Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Sometimes, you just can't look away from a trainwreck.
*sighs* Bowser...is really the only saving grace in this part. The scene with Lewis and Brandi is just...messed up. And SFC11 Cheating Satan Spawn needs to shut the hell up; him making fun of Adam and others is truly sick. Adam's mother literally died from cancer, and now he's making fun of it and saying "we need some sorta scene like that to find an idol"? Good, SWSU. Thank you for making me detest his vile ass even more.
@Tailslover13: That was awful. But honestly, I'm much more angry with how SWSU handled Cassidy's part. Say what you want about Eli, at least he's not explicitly mocking the idea of using a loved one to win the game. With this, Cassidy is teetering right on the line between "joke character" and "Hantz Parody".
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: They were BOTH discussing it, though...and, I think it's clear that you-know-who will resort to ANYTHING just to cheat and use his unfair powers to make it far, even to the point of mocking things that aren't supposed to be mocked. Seriously, people think that just because Jeremy and Adam got edits that depicted them playing for their wife and mother, it's "stupid" or "annoying" or "forced", and we should make fun of such an edit. But it's not; everyone plays the game differently and for different reasons. Playing the game for reasons like that and having them drive you to win is BEAUTIFUL, and not something to be mocked. So, seeing Cassidy and...her cousin...BOTH mocking it sickens me.
@Tailslover13: I think the bigger story here is that this is how the creator really feels about Jeremy and Adam. It's like, "Sob stories are the easiest way to win now. These guys have made Survivor boring." Whatever, dude. I'm perfectly fine with you not liking them for making their seasons predictable. I feel the same way about some of the winners myself. But for the love of god, don't do this.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Well, their creator is SWSU himself...so that's how HE feels. And, yeah, I know he does. But I personally just disagree with it myself. Sob stories aren't the only way they won; it's just a part of them and it might've been the main thing to DRIVE them to win. Every single person won in a different, unique way; that's what makes every winner different. So, hating Adam and Jeremy is honestly just wrong; they won because they worked hard to get there. Their "motivations" was just their main driving force. Everyone has one. I bet if you look down at all the winners of Survivor, you'd find a reason why they were out there fighting to win.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: This is poking fun at the Producers with those Tearful Idol Finding OTTPP scenes.
It's nothing against the players themselves. Surprised I have to even mention that.
@SWSU-Master: Huh. How'd I miss that?
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Isn't Cassidy supposed to be a joke Hantz parody? Or at least a joke Hantz fangirl parody?
@hmm: She is. The problem is that she's become less "joke" and more "mockery", which was SFC Hantz's entire character.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: As always, you're 100% correct. A CORRECT "joke" would be Freddy from SFC15. He wasn't a mockery of anything; he was just supposed to be a 'joke' in that nerd characters always tended to go far and win when they logically shouldn't. But, more or less, Freddy had a lot of people like him. Denise from SFC2 was a joke, and a really good one. Mercy from SFC9 was a joke, and a good one. Jake was a joke from SFC14, and...well, I liked him. So, I agree with you; there are jokes and then there are mockeries. And mockeries aren't funny.
@Tailslover13: And I already hated Russell Hantz, so there you go. Mostly, though, I just find these characters unbearably annoying. I rarely get offended at anything.
Lewis is even more Brandi than Brandi. You could even say she has been out-Brandi'd. Impressive? You bet it is.
Lewis Lake must die.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Well the apple doesn't always fall far from the tree.
Lake... stop being an ass.
Eli really rubbed me the wrong way this comic. He was clearly referencing Adam, and Adam was completely genuine in his reaction. His mom was literally dying of cancer. He wasn't doing it just for camera time.
Jesus Christ Brandi's family is fucked up. While Lake is right that Brandi constanly makes bad desisions, he was way too harsh. He also forgot that the social aspect of the game is important too, and just because you are not aligned with someone, doesn't mean you should treat them as inferiors. That's how people like Richard Kim and Tony were able to win. They made it clear it was not personal.
@Misterjakester : Adam, Jeremy, Mike, Tony etc
@SWSU-Master: while their families might of played a part in winning, the jury had to look at their games as a whole. They all had to work to get to the ftc, and didn't use their families as excuses. if someone on survivor was a goat or an asshole the entire time, only to claim they were doing it for their families in ftc, odds are they still wouldn't win.
@Misterjakester: Absolutely. Look at Ken in MvsGX? He told the jury he was doing this for his daughter to bring her a better life. Still got zero votes. Probably still gets zero votes if Adam didn't say anything about his mom.
While I understand where both Lake and Brandi are coming from, they're also both horrible at the whole 'trust' thing. Makes my family seem that more stable, at any rate.
Also, Bowser just picking up Brandi and throwing her over his shoulder is hilarious. These tribes need more princesses~
You have to feel bad for Brandi here. She's actually making some smart moves this time around but can't do it without getting attacked by her dad. However, I actually think she has a really strong chance of winning.
Could this be considered mental abuse? Because damnit Lake, your daughter is actually trying.
But at least we got to have Bowser to lighten the mood. He's a good Koopa.
@ChronoAlone: it says something about your character if an evil dictator is disturbed by your actions
Guys it's called "dark humor". There's no reason to be offended over Eli/Cassidy
@Slicer37: Honestly nobody would have an issue with this if SWSU didn't make it so painfully obvious he hates modern Survivor.
@Guest: Well the producers of modern survivor don't like classic survivor very much either
@Guest: I like Modern Survivor, but it does have its issues to highlight.
Honestly both Brandi and Lake are playing like idiots here. Brandi's going out of her way to get into trouble instead of LAYING LOW LIKE SHE SHOULD BE DOING AS A RETURNING PLAYER. And Lake's pissing her off which he shouldn't do period regardless if he's being a parent or not.
Also yeah, the scene between Cassidy and Eli is totally a jab by SWSU at the sympathy vote winners like Adam and Jeremy. Like usual, they are his pets to mock and belittle current Survivor. Especially Cassidy.
Even though, you know, Adam and Jeremy wouldn't have won with sympathy had someone like David or Wentworth been sitting next to them at final tribal council. So I don't know why he has an issue with them. >.>
Also, with how negative this cast is, Bowser is becoming more and more likable compared to his SFC12 version.
Honestly even aside from the Brandi shit Lake kind of sucks at Survivor. Making an alliance right off the bat and expecting everyone to stick with it without checking in on anyone's loyalty and then referring to people not in your alliance as the "enemy" and refusing to even speak to them is not how you play the game properly lol
Oh my gosh..........I know this is a game for most people simple. But for some of the smaller amount of people that play, this is simply getting WAY too personal THIS soon on ONLY Day 4. & it could really be just be tricks on my mind but, If this was NOT the breaking point for Brandi/Lake (w/ how there was PURE Psychological abuse showcased here), then the next time btwn them is GUARENTEED to be the Back-Breaker for this Father/Daughter's Relationship. & yes, that not only goes for this game, but for Life afterwards for them too. Again, I hope it's just tricks on my mind, but I get the DEEP sense of dread that the next altercation like this, WILL perhaps get Physical btwn Brandi/Lake (as in, do REAL physical harm like a Slap/Punch/Firm Shove/etc.). & no, don't give me that SHIT about there's no abuse going on, bc I KNOW already that someone WILL get Violent Very soon btwn them (either by Brandi/Lake/someone else even).
So SO sorry if this is WAY more negative than it needed to be, but just by watching this Complete FAILURE of a relationship here btwn this Broken Parent/Child pair, but I've already seen PLENTY of these altercations bf, where similar 1 like this here typically DOES go from Verbal/Mental abuse, to eventually Physical if no-one does Anything to intervene REAL soon afterward. So now already, this is the 1st pair that is SOLIDLY a Failure altogether (I mean HELL, EVEN BONNIE/CLYDIA's was NEVER THIS BAD, since it was ALWAYS just a Ruse simply put, but my GOD, Brandi/Lake are the DEFINITION of Failure)!
*Sighs deflated* Ok...I'm done for now. But just warning you ALL, that if this father/daughter gets to SUCH an all-time low from here in this EP, then it's sadly an I-Told-You-So. & again, if ANYONE tries to attack me for being real, then F&#@ you too. I'm NOT going to bust my BALLS over Useless/Petty Crap that has NO purpose for this Forum/game. DX
If I'm not around for days, then it means that I'm trying to cool off & need to disappear for a bit. Otherwise, I will be back but staying silent until I HAVE to speak-up again. :(
Hopefully this goes better than I dreadfully fear it does. But it's not looking good either way for this pair.
@Yumichika Time: lol there won't be any violence.
I'm calling it now: Brandi will orchestrate her father's elimination
Can't tell if this is setting up an early exit for Lewis, or an early exit for Brandi....
Hopefully Lewis, since he deserves the exit more, but regardless the case it'll be because of his doing that whatever happens happens.
What's with the Eli/Cassidy hate? They're poking fun at the editing, not the winners themselves.
Lewis Lake is a sack of sh**.
Daaamn Lake sucks. Never felt as bad for Brandi than I do right now. Hope she can take him down in the near future.
Bowser is still everything and more.
I personally don't see much wrong with Eli and Cassidy here. They're having a giggle at the producers and their tendency to overdo dramatic moments, that's a pretty standard reaction. Lake, though... Yes, Brandi is a screwup. You don't need to remind her of that in the most abrasive way possible. I never thought I'd be taking Brandi's side, but there it is.
I think I begin to understand why Brandi jumped from accusation to accusation in her original season. She wanted to prove to Lake that she can be a capable investor and needed a sense of achievement. That's why her game was so agressive.
And now that she is finally on the right track her dad stops her because he forgets he isn't without faults as well. Brandi must really envy Rosella for having the more understanding father.
Lake, you're worse than your daughter, you know that? Like, I can totally understand now why Brandi is the way she is. She's got him for a role model, and he's just an abusive, psychologically manipulative asshole. I feel really bad for her.
I mean, You know you're crossing the line if BOWSER is taken aback.
ouch, not a very good look for lake. but maybe soon, jeff will say "she voted out her DAD!!" :)
In all seriousness, Lake is being a dick towards Brandi, but Brandi started it. I really have no sympathy for her in terms of the game. In terms of her relationship with her father, I do. There's a major difference between game and real life.
"The line between game and life is not cut and dried."
I'm fairly certain Lake's around as a distraction to make Brandi not seem as incompetent. At first, we could just blame everything on Shaega and Paranoia, but given Lake's comment, as assholeish as they are, I think Brandi was always incompetent as a cop.
RE-reading a few things, I'm certain the story behind the cops are that Lake leaves early, and Brandi continues to be a screw up. Only this season she realizes that maybe her father was right about her abilities. Either she corrects them, or gets voted out before she could. Either way, I'm fairly certain this duo will have a happy ending regardless.
Also, I got to say the differences between then and now with Bowser is GIANT. Everyone seems to LIKE him compared to SFC12.
@TJBambi93: How did Brandi start it?
@DryIceBros: Honestly, while Lake is acting like a dick, if Brandi laid low she wouldn't have gotten herself into trouble with her father.
If your father is that much of a control freak, wouldn't be wise to just lay low to avoid the target?
@TJBambi93: Well, for Brandi, she wants to prove to Lake that she can do these things on her own, without having him tug her around everywhere.
I mean, that's how I see it.
I'm in the minority probaby, but everytime Lake is an ass to Brandi, a horrible, dark part of me laughs.
Brandi's just annoying. With or without that rejected Pacman ghost and sociopath controlling her.
Lake can you go fuck off? I fucking hate you
and Eli and Cassidy just need to stop
