Re: Survivor 26: Caramoan – Fans Vs Favorites: Tribal Council is over (No Spoilers)
And Andrea got a really good edit because a) she wound up winning Redemption Island b) she had a showmance of sorts with Matt and wound up "betraying" him by voting him out. Jeff Probst cares more about "characters" and "stories" than about actual strategy or gameplay. He also seems to have some kind of hard-on for Andrea. We could tell even back on RI that it was a given she would be back.
It's interesting as I'm thinking about this now. During RI, I liked Andrea a lot and really didn't like Ashley at all and was irritated she made it as far as she did. But 90% of that is what the editors chose to show us and the narrative they wanted to create. In the post-game interviews Ashley came across just fine. This season, many Survivors (inside and outside the game) are sour on Andrea but we really haven't seen why. I would like to see more of that and hopefully we will in the upcoming episodes.
Editing on this show is so important. Malcolm even said he was surprised by his hero edit from last season. He said plenty of snarky and mean things in his confessionals but they just never showed them.
