It may be a harder question to say who couldn't. In series history. Every series. For that matter, pretty much every part of world history where two people would have been competing against each other for a title.
Put it this way: if the presidential race was Kass vs. Rick Santorum, the United States is under Christian sharia today. Also, I'm not writing this post because I was executed in the first wave of cleansings, but never mind that for now. The point is that Kass, who had no ability to read a jury, craft a speech to convince one, or perceive a world where the sun did not revolve around her, quite possibly would lose to over ninety percent of the contestants who've ever played.
And those are just the ones who made the finals.
In this cast... she arguably could have beaten J'Tia. Maybe Morgan, but that would depend on just how good the latter was at the bisexual level of flirt and I'm going to say 'Not very'. Pretty much everyone else? Down in the flames she so loved to set. And when we go backwards... well, she would have taken out Chet in a walk. Wanda, total trouncing. But with so many other villains and goats and jerks and outright affronts to the species... she's still worse.
And she says it's because she's not a man. If she were male, it would just be aggressive gameplay. The implication being that we're being sexist. Sort of like how if you ask for a blue car by describing it as blue, you're being a car racist: in both cases, the excuse only makes sense to the person who wants to use it against you. Describing a personality trait is not an act of sexism. Kass is a bitch who relishes hurting people, a sadist who finds excuses to justify it and the first is 'I enjoyed it'. That's a description. And it's an accurate one.
The jury saw her for what she is: nature's perfect goat. Everyone did -- except Woo, blinded by a definition of 'honor'. So many people could have beaten her. Everywhere, virtually every time.
I'm waiting for the interview. For the excuses. For her blaming everyone but herself.
Tony was a jerk. He rubbed virtually every blindsided wound with salt on the way out because it amused him to do so, never even remotely thinking about what his Sugar addiction might be doing until three seconds into the final TC. He went for villainy all the way through, left no bond unbroken, made excuses for betrayal and talked himself into believing them. Peace in the backroom or not, I feel he leaves with few friends. If I encountered him as a police officer, I might as well just run into traffic rather than face the false charges he'll bring against me just for me. The judgment of the car hit is quicker.
But he still beats Kass.
She'll be playing with her
slave husband next season, won't she?
