racer, using the analogy of a random girl to substantiate that Abi is the reason why this season is interesting is just not valid. But you have your way because you're blinded by Queen Abi and I respect it.
It's like saying, this season would have been boring if Tandang lost immunity and voted out Lisa in the first Tribal Council... and we wouldn't have all the switching of alliances of Tandang and everything. There's a lot of What If which is not even valid and flawed.
But one thing sure is Abi is one hell of an entertainment, that I won't take away. But I just wish to say that Abi is not the only reason this season is entertaining. Lisa being a completely trainwreck is as entertaining as well.
Joab, I didn't mean to say that Abi is the only
reason this season is interesting.
What I meant was that pretty much everything that has happened post-merge was as a result of Abi's actions - good or bad.
If I go back to the analogy of some other random person instead of Abi, if that random person did not call out Lisa at Tribal Council, Lisa would probably never have joined the six-person alliance, nor would that alliance have existed in the first place.
What I'm basically saying is that I think that six-person alliance wouldn't have formed if it wasn't because of their common hatred of Abi and this season wouldn't have had as many exciting blindsides or shocks as it did.
But I for sure agree that other people (particularly Lisa and Malcolm (and the other Matsings in the first half of the season)) have also made this season interesting.
