Survivor: The Amazon, MVP Moments for EveryonePage 2

Deena: In one episode, Deena managed to go from being one of the favorites to win the game, to the jury. All because she got a little greedy and decided to try and get rid of Alex before his time, not realizing that she was on the outs when she thought she had the votes of Jenna and Heidi. Sorry Deena, you don't have a "male organ" so it may be a little tough to get Jenna and Heidi on your side when it comes to Alex. Anyway, I would say that Deena's MVP moment is a toss up. First, you have her joining with the "boob troop alliance." That was a smart move on her part because she was protected from the vote. Also, we have when she formed her secret alliance with Rob. That was also a smart move because she understood that she was going to need a male ally when the tribes merged if she wanted to stick around. Why not hook up with the best strategizing male. Oh Deena, you could have lasted so much longer had you just voted out Butch instead of Alex.
Alex: Um, Alex? I still don't understand why you told Rob in the final four you were going to vote for him. That was such a dumb thing to do. You basically said: "Hey Rob, do me a favor and gather up some people to vote me out tonight because if I we make the final four, you're out." I must say that in the beginning of the game I liked Alex, but he really went through a change when he went over to Jaburu. He became lazy and mesmerized by the women. However, his MVP moment was turning Deena's alliance mates on her and having Jenna and Heidi join him in voting her out. After catching wind that she was trying to organize his ouster, Alex, very cunningly I must add, gathered up enough people to get rid of her. I must say that in the end though, Alex really did get what was coming to him, and the look on his face was satisfaction for me.
Christy: (An open letter to Christy) Dear Christy, you know I love you. You were by far my favorite woman this time around. Nobody comes close to being as sweet as you were when it came to this game. I just wish you would have actually played the game a little more in the beginning. Why, oh why, did you have to tell Rob you weren't sure how you were going to vote? I wish you had just said yes. If you had said yes, I truly believe that you would have had a great chance at winning the game. The jury would have voted for you to win in a heartbeat. I am not going to sit here and give you an MVP moment. You were the MVP of the GAME. The obstacles that you had to face early on were rough. You were ignored, treated badly, and at some points harassed. However, you had the courage and the strength to persevere over all of this. Being the first deaf Survivor is something to be proud of. You lasted very long and nobody can say anything bad about you. If anyone in this game has ever been a role model, it is you. There is no reason that you should not hold your head high, you're an inspiration to many. Your friend, Phil.
Heidi: I could sit here all day and write negative things about Heidi, but everyone seems to be doing that these days. Therefore, I'm going to say some positive stuff. First, Heidi played the game very well. She understood that an alliance was necessary, and in my eyes, was the leader of the "boob troop." That is her MVP moment, actually forming the first woman's alliance. She made it very far by flip flopping alliances just like Rob and pretty much everyone else did. I don't think she meant to come across as the way that she did, but you can imagine how much editing has to do with it. Do I think she should lose her job from her actions on the show? No. Yeah, she is a teacher, but like she said, hunger can make you do some crazy things and if I was in her situation I would have no problem showing my manhood for some stuffed shells. Okay, I'm rambling, just wanted to say that I think it's time we gave Heidi a break.
Butch: Butch really didn't play the game at all. His dancing had me in stitches though, so thank God for that. I would say that Butch's MVP moment came when he torched the camp. Oh, come on people… why else would he be obsessed with all that wood.
Rob: Like Dave and Christy, there is not one moment that I could name for Rob that he really went above and beyond. He has several. So many, that it would take me forever to list them all. Rob was a master strategist and I think he deserved to win far more than Jenna or Matt did. Although, isn't that so often the case that third place seems to deserve it a little more? Anyway, in order to see all of Rob's moments, you would have to re-read all my MVP articles because from episode four and on, Rob started to play the game hard-core and really started to shine. It was fun to watch him because he was unpredictable. Rob made this season interesting to watch because you never knew who he was going to stab in the back next. I loved it. Anyway, I'm sure this is not the last we will see of him, and I hope he is in the All-Star edition.
Matt: Wow, Matt REALLY lost. I thought he had a few votes in there. That few votes… ended up being one. Oh well, Jenna outplayed him, and that is what the game is about. Matt was a hard worker and always did what needed to be done. However, when it came to knowing how to play the game, he just wasn't quite all there. His MVP moment is actually courtesy of Rob because Rob let him follow. Matt was smart to stay in the background while Rob was doing the scheming because it made it look like he was just doing what Rob said. However, that may be the reason so many people did not vote for him in the end because they knew he was not really playing the game, but rather letting Rob do all the work for him. Heck, that is probably why Rob didn't even vote for him. In the end, it all came down to Matt not playing enough, instead of playing too hard.
Jenna: She won. Is there really anything else to say? I think Jenna's MVP moment was when she started to answer the jury questions. I have to say that she really stated her case about why she deserved to win and why Matt didn't. She played the game, struggled in the beginning, was comfortable in the middle, and struggled again in the end. However, she pulled it off by telling the jury a mix of the truth and what they wanted to hear. I have to give her kudos because I really wanted her to beat Matt in the end simply because she came a long way. I said some things about her in the past that weren't so nice, but you have to give credit when it's due, and Jenna earned it. I would have rather seen Rob win, but what are you going to do?
