I thought the guy who won last season was insufferably smut and entitled.
I don't mind Craig. He's goofy but it really seems like that's just who he is. The fact that other people take up for him makes me think he's a nice, if socially awkward, guy. I probably wouldn't be his best friend or anything, but he seems like a good kid. He did say that he picked a drink because they felt they needed one and it would free him up to help other people on his team, which he did. He had immunity and chose to make himself a team leader - and usually the team leader of the losing team goes so he was taking a hit there, and he chose something simple to help out other people. If he hadn't had immunity, I seriously doubt he would have had the same plan. He was being a team player. I actually thought their table looked so much more interesting than the other table with that straw giraffe situation. That was ugly and random. Every single thing looked so good, even the things that melted.
Also, I've read that "crazy guy from last season" was told not to take his meds during taping and THAT'S how he ended up crying and going over the edge. That's a shame. I realize they want more drama, but if that rumor is actually true then that...just seems unethical as hell.
Now I really really want to go out and eat a thousand teeny desserts. I hate that dessert gum, it's all gross, but all the wee tiny desserts were adorable and then seeing the other things all pink and plated...yes, today is a good day to find a tasting menu.
He was being a team player.
