Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X: Jessica "Figgy" Stimpy's Take
Septeber 6, 2016
Jessica "Figgy" - MILLENIALS
Interesting. A direct contrast the entitled nature of Adam, this young lady is all about fighting to get what you want.
That’s the kind of attitude I can dig.
She knows that in this game no one is gonna give you anything ‘just because’. If you want it you’ve gotta go out there and take it yourself.
I’m a bit worried about her professing to be a leader because that kinda thing can bite you in the ass in this game. Especially if there’s a couple of alpha-assholes on her tribe that don’t take too kindly to being told what to do and how to do it by a woman.
Likening herself to Stephenie doesn’t inspire me with much confidence, but I can get where Jessica’s head is at. I think it’s more the plucky underdog Palau version of Stephenie than the entitle snotty version from Guatemala. And Stephenie barely registered as a fact during Heroes vs. Villains.
The truth is Jessica does seem to be leaning towards the plucky underdog version because she mentions Stephenie’s toughness despite showing some signs of weakness.
All in all I like a lot about Jessica’s attitude. The leadership aspect of things does worry me, but she seems to get that it’s not just about being a leader with a good work ethic. She mentions her personality as one of her assets.
THAT’S a big key. In a social game you can be tough, have a great work ethic and be a wonderful leader, but if you’re an asshole yer not gonna win this game.
I’d probably have a bit more hope for Jessica’s chances if she said that while she could be a leader she’d be smart enough to go with the flow if circumstances dictate it.
Being tough and fighting for everything you get is a great attitude to have, but one of the keys of this game is the ability to adapt. Not just to the surroundings and the environment, but to the other players as well.
If Jessica ends up butting heads with others who think THEY’RE leaders and doesn’t have numbers on her side? Yeah, she’s gone early.
If she does get the numbers or happens to be lesser asshole of the head-butters? Then she can stick around for a bit.
Do I think she’ll win? Nope. Just not feeling it, but there is stuff to like here.
