"As I stated, to be among the GREATEST you simply cannot have a weakness in even ONE discipline. I'm ranking the greatest athletes, entertainers, or in this case, the greatest Survivors ever...
Actually, the greatest doesn't necessarily have to be great in all disciplines. Hitting home runs is quite important for baseball players but you can be a great baseball player and be really poor at hitting them. Think Hall of Fame member Rod Carew for example or, better yet, a pitcher who doesn't even have to hit a single one to be great.
I'm not sure if Tom Brady (replace him with Aaron Rodgers if you prefer) could tackle anyone yet he is a great football player despite that weakness in a key skill of his sport.
Same happens in entertainment: Some great actors cannot sing, some singers cannot act.
That being said, it is especially meaningless in Survivor where being great at everything only makes you a target. The wise players play down some of their skills or compensate their weaknesses in other ways.
As for Cirie, we know that DURING the game, Sally, Austin and Nick all said that they hated Danielle and Aras but that they loved Cirie. Cirie definitely beats Aras in that F2. Terry had no chance to be in that F2.
In Micronesia, Elisa wrote that the jury was definitely voting for Cirie if she had been there. Even Erik would have voted for her. Amanda ONLY had James and Ozzy.
I know it's a lot of blah blah but it is what the players themselves said while the game was still underway. It doesn't come from me and it wasn't said after watching the show but directly from the jury's talks in Ponderosa.
Ils sont fous, ces Romains!
