A full three weeks of the game are in the books, and I’m absolutely loving this season so far, even though I can’t stand a couple of the HGs (take a wild guess). Read on for my thoughts.
Here I was, planning to post every day, especially at the beginning of the season. Usually live feeds are pretty calm with no huge moves being made (or attempts at making them, at least). I think this year might hold the record for the most drama so early in the game. With a self-evict, a massive betrayal, an injury, switching sides, and lots of campaigning, I couldn’t keep my eyes off the feeds long enough to post anything. With what’s sure to be a short lull in game conversations, I’m taking my chance now.
Ah, it’s been too long since I heard Julie say “But first…” and it was great to hear it again. I’ve heard some mixed opinions on the season so far (not like it’s easy to tell exactly how it’s going to be right now after only one episode), and I think my opinions fall somewhere in middle of those opinions.
Just a quick, probably unnecessary warning: if you haven’t watched the premiere yet and are spoiler-averse, you may want to avoid reading this for now.
After reading some other opinions on the HGs, I’ve noticed that some of my impressions of them differ slightly. You very well may disagree with me completely – and that’s awesome! My opinions tend to change throughout the season as people show their true colors, so who knows? Maybe in a week I’ll be agreeing with you.
Read on for my thoughts on this year’s HGs. My opinions are more about them as people rather than their planned strategies, simply because those strategies change so often that after a few days they might be completely irrelevant.
