How is she mean? "Mean" to me indicates deliberate intent to hurt others. When has she done that?
She's mean in that she doesn't know the difference between being honest and being brutally honest. She's not nice to people, she's confrontational, and she's not respectful to other people when she has disagreements with them.
Her honesty isn't what people don't like. It's the fact that she can't be nice and honest that they don't like.
Abi is a piece of work. How people around her avoid *****-slapping her is a mystery to me.
I don't think Colby has heard the end of his decision to take Tina to the finals rather than Keith. There have been plenty of people of who won, who really didn't deserve it, because the person sitting next to them couldn't get the votes. You're much better off sitting next to the villain at the end. It's not a guarantee, but it definitely improves your odds.
I agree that she is not "nice". But that doesn't make her "mean".
Seems to fit pretty well, unless you are thinking of
Mean = malicious. She's not malicious.
She was kind of malicious in the way she and Pete treated RC.
Exactly. I think her claws really came out with the way she turned on RC, and ever since she showed that side of her, she's not been shy to show it to everyone else, as well.
Mainy dictionaries disagree with you.
Merriam-Webster definition 5:
She's vexatious. She's exhibited petty selfishness. Merriam-Webster says she's mean.
From a Bing search:
She's been unkind. She's been bad-tempered. Bing says she's mean.
I think your personal defintion of the word requires intent. I think the normally accepted definition of the word does not.
I disagree that she hasn't been malicious, but even if she hasn't is there a reason you are ignoring all of the other defining characteristics of "mean" that Abi has clearly and repeatedly displayed?
I don't think being "troublesome" or "bad-tempered" is mean. I don't think "selfish" is mean. To me, "mean" is deliberately trying to hurt someone (or their feelings).
So you've just decided to go with your own definition rather than the actual definition?
That's how the vast majority of the world works, day to day.
But most don't admit to it so readily and proudly!
That doesn't make you any less wrong.
What was I wrong about?
Or maybe, just maybe, its genuine and sincere.
I'm curious as to how/why the survivors are dressed as they are. They don't always make good choices.
I think for the most part, the producers dress them that way.
