    Derrick would've taken Cody because he knew that he could beat him. Cody took Derrick knowing that he would lose. He wasn't sure that he could beat Victoria and losing to Derrick is a lot more respectable than losing to Victoria.

    Also, I don't think the casting department is the problem. The producers are looking for certain types and have the final decision. The same group cast a great group for Big Brother Canada last year. Strong females, multiple masterminds, etc.

    It sounded like a house guest even said "Frankie" before Julie said Donny... thinking it would be Frankie, too.

    So, I watched the talk yesterday because I was interested in hearing what Derrick had to say. I was quit disappointed when they decided to bring Frankie on the show as well. Why Frankie? Why not runner up Cody? Plus it felt like they spent more time talking to Frankie then Derrick too. I've never really watched the Talk after the final, do they normally take two people with them or is it usually only the winner?

    In the past, I think it was only the winner. I recorded it, and was looking forward to watching it, but now a little less so knowing that Frankie will be on.

    The talk had the final 3 in season 14. No one was invited last year.

    I heard that as well. I kept rewinding it trying to see who said it, but never figured it out. Sounded too loud (ie: close to a mic) to have come from the audience, but maybe it did. But the split second before Julie announced the names, someone said "Frankie" plain as day.

    What's even more odd is that they had Frankie scheduled before the finale even took place. I think he was Julie's pet this year and she had already arranged for him to come on the show.

    Did anyone else notice that the entire night, Frankie managed to position himself right beside Julie. Like if there was a shot of Julie standing amongst the entire group, Frankie was always right beside her hamming it up for the camera.

    In other Frankie news, I read that he and Zach are trying to get cast as a team for The Amazing Race. Blah!

    Great ending. Kudos to Derrick he played an outstanding game yet came across incredibly low key from day one. No real drama, not huge "in your face" forms of manipulation like past "best ever" players. He played a near perfect game IMO.

    So happy to see see Donnie win too.

    Good riddance ya fake/phoney Jocasta..ditto to Frankie.

    Yep, noticed that too. When Julie was about to announce the AF award, he looked like he was poised to just grab Julies envelope and wave thank you to the camera right then and there. Glad he failed to make even the top 3. LOL!

    I noticed in one group shot, he kept pivoting, posing, pivoting, posing, etc. Get over yourself already Frankie!

    What sets Derrick's game apart from all the winners before him is how he managed to completely hide everything he was doing the entire game. Not a single player realized how manipulative he was until they got to the jury house and were able to compare notes with each other.

    They had Frankie on because of his sister. They get lots of free publicity out of that relationship. Frankie doesn't deserve the attention, but he's riding his sister's fame for all it can get him. He's worthless on his own, but attach the last name and he gets them headlines.

    Yep and it was genius on his part. All the other "best" players had some big showy act they started to put on for both the house and the cameras (DR) and got all melodramatic during some parts of their season. Derrick flat out blended into the woodwork day in and day out, yet still said all the right things all while showing next to no emotion at all.

    I did notice in one of the shots from things overheard was a picture of Caleb with his shirt off. I feel he was also disappointed that not only did he not win America's Favorite player he didn't even make the top three either.
    Now he can focus on his acting/singing/fitness model contracts that are just waiting for him to choose.

    Derrick was a master at playing that house and the personalities in it. A lot of people don't like the seasons with a dominant player and few surprises, but I enjoy watching a player successfully execute a plan. Like Boston Rob when he won Survivor, I enjoyed watching him operate.

    And that was the most boring season of Survivor as well :p Great gameplay doesn't equate to an exciting season, unless there are several people playing great games that go against one another.

    This season was good. Sure, there were some people that really didn't know how to play the game but there were several decent players and a couple of very good players. The thing I liked most was there were no truly mean and hateful people. People like Evel Dick, and what was that meatheads name, Howie??? Those types should never be on a "fun" reality show.

    Makes me kinda wish we had two per year.
