From August 9th until September 16th the cast-a-ways contested the Heroes vs. Villians and filmed it for our entertainment. Beginning in February we get to watch the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!
Of course when she said that to me in Samoa right before filming on Heroes Vs. Villains, Candice Woodcock was pretty sure she was going to be on the Villains tribe. And with good reason: Candice is most famous for mutinying off her own tribe in the Cook Islands. Probst’s defense for making Candice a hero (which can be seen in the video below) is that Candice’s mutiny maneuver was a heroic move to get back on a team with the people she loved. Okay, but that runs completely contrary to the way Cook Islands was edited and presented, when Yul, Ozzy, Becky, and Sundra were the abandoned underdogs who had to overcome tremendous odds after being left for dead by Candice and Jonathan Penner. In fact, Cook Islands was an underwhelming season until we finally had people to root for and against, and make no mistake, back then Candice was being presented squarely in the “against” camp. But here she is a hero? Doesn’t make sense, but there you have it. [ an exclusive on location video ]
