Mhm. It's that time again.
Before I delve into why Spencer is awful, I should probably retell my experience watching him. At first, I actually liked him. He wasn't my #1 in the season at any point of time, but he was definitely up there. However, when the merge came around, he started to get kinda bad? He went from a young player who narrowly escaped elimination to a whiny negbitch. He wasn't terrible at that point, but I stopped liking him.
Then, the finale came around. Oh boy, did the finale ever come around. Spencer did the following three things in the finale to make me loathe him, ranked on levels of forgivability:
1) He called Kass a braindead weasel. Believe it or not, this was the best of three awful things he did during the finale.
2) His jury speech. Although he apparently didn't write it himself, he still delivered it AND lived with the satisfaction and smugness that he helped Tony win, when Tony was going to win anyways. Calling Woo a dog, Kass a goat, and scolding the jury for having normal human emotions with the utmost self-righteousness was HORRENDOUS.
3) His final words. I had a strong feeling that Spencer was a fun-sucking annoyance, but calling Survivor "miserable" solidified it as FACT. He really DID suck the fun out of so many moments in the merge, including the idol hunt, quite a few challenges, and basic camp life in general.
Looking back after watching the finale, I realized that Spencer had been awful and fun-sucking the entire season, but it was too subtle for me to pick up on. I guess I was busy loving Morgan in the pre-merge to notice his awfulness.
Spencer was also kind of boring, too. He got a huge amount of airtime - too much than he deserved, in my opinion. Tony also got a TON of airtime, but at least he was majorly affecting the game throughout the merge. All Spencer did was come in and win a challenge or two, spark Tony's paranoia once (ALTHOUGH I CREDIT TASHA WITH THAT MOVE MUCH MORE!!!!), and bottomfeed until his eventual and glorious elimination.
I know 0% of the readers of this thread will agree with this opinion, and I'll probably get flak for it, but I really don't care. I found Spencer's confessionals to be more toneless and boring than "witty" or "funny". This especially rings true when watching ACTUAL funny narrators like Rob C. do what they do best. At the very least, Spencer left something to be desired.
Spencer ranks this high because I imagine he's not a horrible human being in real life.

Basically, Alicia spent her lengthy stay on OW bullying Christina with Colton - at least, until Colton left. Her treatment of Christina was awful and felt racially-powered imo. She did apologize for her general awfulness, which I can definitely appreciate, but she was an overall uncomfortable and unwanted presence on a relatively-bad season. Not much more I can say.
With that, we've reached the top 400!
