best season ever.
This might seem random, but good god, Spade is terrible. In a nutshell, Spade is a smug bore who constantly builds himself up only to disappoint every single time. He did nothing in the premerge other than follow Baxter around and criticize the people I liked "Isaac is an idiot :/" ''Alex is fat :/". His story started in the post-merge, where every single round he would have the opportunity to flip and change up the game, only to back out every single time. N and Montana offered him the flip twice in separate boots, and he would just chicken out. I think the best example is when Hope tried to set up a sub-alliance in the Roku 5...and Spade right away goes to Baxter and tattletales. Then, he finally flips at the F6 to get Beth out...and then tries to flip back with his tail between his legs . Then Baxter finally offs him and he frigging punches Baxter, despite EVERYTHING around his boot being his fault. And all this time, he would build himself up as this great player. What a pussy.
I mean, she was obviously just there for filler, but I didn't enjoy her gimmick of not talking, it was just like eh.
Another early boot just there so Baxter could backstab him. The reason he's in orange because in all like 4 confessionals he had, he would talk about how N was sure to go over him-PWNT.
HE DID NOTHING, HE CAN'T TALK. I don't even dislike him, but him coming back to allstars as a UTR2 4th boot made no sense to me and neither did him having a fanbase.
Someone who I expected/wanted to like a lot more than I did, Marty just kind of annoyed me. To me, he was just a CPN bot with the generic "sneaky furry" thing...I'm happy he for causing drama, but it just felt kind of forced, especially with the whole fake twist thing. My problem with that is that, well...it was basically Marty's entire character. He would just like, lie around and talk about how no one could get rid of him heh heh heh, and it's just like ugh because he's not really an active villain, he's just lying around being totally safe and chortling about it. When he did get active on Lockera he was okay, but his personality was just too smug and unlikable for me. Him losing because of beer lol<3.
I expected to loathe Violet like I do in allstars, but honestly...there's not a lot there to have an opinion until endgame lol. Violet is like the least important person in the F10 in terms of interactions and plot (aside from Alex I guess). He's just off to the side, being anti-social and winning challenges. Not going to lie though, he's in orange because he got pretty awful in the endgame, with constantly complaining about everyone else, being another guy who was hella entitled even though his boot was his fault, etc. oh well never cared about him anyway .
She was pretty OTTN, and while I would like that normally, her OTTN consisted of yelling at people for not working hard enough, only to get pwnt episode 2. eh, pass.
okay, so yeah, she was a forgettable mercy first boot. Cassie''s this high for 2 reasons: 1. I always do feel bad for sick boots because it's sad for someone to have no chance like that and 2. Her being sick caused Montana to stay in the game<3333.
10. Bessi Bell:
She's fine. I remember her kinda being the CPP leader of the girls tribe. I did like how she wasn't passive, she would at least try to stay in the game after she got swapped. I feel like people have this thing now where they hate every CPP leader without looking at them, because Bessi Bell is pretty unobjectionable.
Pretty minor character, but I did end up liking her somewhat, she was pretty cute. She was beth's sidekick throughout the premerge, and she had a fair amount of utrfun moments. karate<3 making fun of iris<3 etc. she is kind of pointless when you get down to it though .
the last premerger on the list, and the only one that makes the green section . Iris definitely had the most fleshed out story of the premerge cast, and most premegers in general . Her going from more negative but still bff's with Hope to Hope's victim was a great story, and Iris's rough but also clingy personality made it work well. Good character.
Let me explain something: I think the Hope transformation was kind of absurd, because it just came out of nowhere lol, there was no build up just "nice sweetheart" to "muahaha backstab". So I don't really care for that aspect of Hope, so that’s not why she’s high. She’s high because I really like both nice and evil Hope aside from the switch<3. Nice Hope brought some good dynamics to the tribes and was a cute sidekick. Evil Hopewas just such a tryhard bitch I thought she was hilarious. Between dumping Iris and coming up with absurd plans to get rid of Baxter, she was great and would be higher if there was more buildup.
Alex is someone who no one used to care about, but is getting more positive feedback lately, and I’m glad because he’s really a character who deserves more attention. Alex is also interesting because he’s one of the only sfc characters (the other is sfc7 phil) that I appreciate his gameplay a lot. Alex was such a utr mastermind though<3. he would randomly pop in as Baxter’s sidekick once every 5 episodes, get someone booted, and retreat. he got to the F3 without doing anything and not being a goat<3. I also do like Alex’s personality, he had his funny moments especially with the stutter. Alex is too UTR for me to put in the top 5, but I really do appreciate him.
No beth is not boring lol...well, let me rephrase that. She IS pretty boring...premerge, where she’s mostly the leader of Lockera and that’s all. But that all changes starting in the merge episode, where she decides after seeing her tribe crash and burn, she is OVER Marty’s bullshit and goes on a screaming rant against him until Violet has to drag her away. I fell in love. Then, she flips on the underdog alliance to join Baxter’s alliance and get rid of Marty, pwnt! After that, she tries sucking up and flirting with Baxter and turns into this hilarious bitch who hangs around with Baxter all day while everyone complains about her and despises her. I’m pretty sure like half of the flip teases throughout the season happened just because everyone got sick of Beth, and then she finally gets flipped on because no one wants her to get to the finals<3. Anyway, post merge beth is great and I feel like everyone who complains about how boring Beth is only read like the first 5 episodes .
There’s a simple reason Issac is this high: he’s hilariously stupid and caused a lot of drama. Instead of giving an analysis, I will simply list the top 5 Issac moments of SFC3:
5-Screaming at N for correcting Spade and having a complete rage attack<3.
4-Getting voted out by his alliance the second they had an alliance just because they hated him so much.
3-Related to #4, all of his alliance’s barely-concealed hatred of him that came up all the time<3.
2-His obsession with getting Minnie out and idoling her over Violet<3
1-All of the Montana fights, duh.
I think we all know why to love SFC N, it’s not super complicated. He kind of reminds me of SFC3 Jim, in that he’s totally adorable all the time<3, and he changes from quiet adorable awkward to strategist adorable awkward...I wish more people would have character development while also keeping what was fun about them. honestly, he’s just a great character, not much to say.
First of all this is SFC3 Baxter ONLY. SFC10 Baxter was terrible and embarrassing.
But back to SFC3 Baxter...how could I not put him high? The season literally was all about him, his rise to power and his fall. It was the first time SFC would really have a storyline like that, and Baxter did it so well. He starts off as this kid who wants to be a strategist and a leader, and he starts backstabbing more and more, becoming more and more ruthless, to emerge as the ruler of the majority with a sure shot to win the game...only to have become so obsessed with backstabbing that he destroys his alliance, and allows a member of the minority to win the game. Not only that, but Baxter was just a fun character to watch. He wasn’t just a gamebot, there was complexity and a human/emotional aspect to him that made him so great (something that SFC10 missed and just made him pure evil ) amazing character and amazing story.
As great as Baxter’s story was, it wouldn’t have worked without someone like Montana there to win from it. Everyone loves Montana, right? I don’t feel the need to explain this one, just that she’s perfect.
