(This is Part 3 of a three-part episode on all/some/many things Survivor with writer, amateur anthropologist, and Abi-Maria apologist Taylor, better known to many as Quack Wabbit; shift your gestalt by reading his work here, here, or everywhere)
Any story is only as good as its stars, and Survivor has given us a deep well of compelling and confusing characters to chew over in our minds. We may all be water hyacinth plants, but who grows and flourishes while others wilt on the vine? We take a deep dive into the social dynamics that make the show so appealing and illustrate those with a deconstruction of Dawn Meehan's disintegration. Taylor then wraps up this marathon by conclusively settling the Michele vs Aubry debate as a final gift to the fanbase.
